Got to the hotel to find we were on the 2nd floor without an elevator. My wife has a bad hip and I have a bad knee. Nothing the hotel could do they said even though we arrived early. Will never stay here again. Couldn't get my WIFI to work. Their tech support blamed my laptop having a firewall.

I was sorry to read that you did not have an enjoyable stay with us. The original portion of the hotel was built with only two floors and there is not an elevator to the second floor. The tower portion of the hotel was built many years later and this area does have elevator access. I am uncertain as to... More

Stayed for my son's birthday. Nice pool area, with tables around so you can bring in food and eat by the pool. Was impressed by Richard, a very attentive employee who kept the area clean and even offered to get us plates for our pizza.

I am glad that you had a nice weekend stay here at the hotel to celebrate your son's birthday. The hotel does allow for you to have food and beverages outside of the pool area only and our hotel is definitely a popular spot for birthday parties. I appreciate the kind comment about our employee, Richard. He is a shining... More

We stayed here on our way home from Michigan. We were towing a car so had to be able to park so we did not have to back up. This place has ample parking. When we checked in, they told us there were two weddings but Kelsey worked really hard and put us in a room away from the really... More

We were quite surprised when we arrived here on Oct 14th for our one night stay on our way home from Tn. Very cute decor, fast check in/out, staff was friendly. This hotel has a lot to offer, we took advantage of the bar and restaurant on site. I had the jalapeno burger which was very good and my b/f... More

This place is dirty and run down! There is mildew in the shower. My coworker's sheets had blood stains on them. The beds are uncomfortable. The rooms are tiny.... Te place smells of second hand smoke even tho it's smoke free. There is a loud whiring sounding noise that comes and goes randomly at all hours. The elevators don't work... More

I was sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us here at the Clarion. I will be speaking to the Executive Housekeeper about the mildew in the bathroom and the blood on the sheets. It is unacceptable that we would have rented a room to a guest that was in this bad of shape. This is... More

The front of this Hotel lures you in but once your inside you just walked back in time. Not in a good way. The rooms are beyond dated and are disgusting. Black mildew all over the bathroom. The ceiling had statins on it from the roof leaking. The furnace made so much noise I had to turn it off. I... More

I was sorry to read that you did not have an enjoyable stay. First, when you contacted the Front Desk, someone should have answered the phone and second, when you came to the desk asking for quiet, the desk clerk should have made the guests leave the pool area. The hotel has quiet hours in the pool area that start... More

This is an older hotel, built in the 60's. But we loved it!!! We felt like we were stepping back in time!! The pool, hot tub, and other activities are great for families!! Game room, pool tables, ping pong table, and miniature golf are all great choices of things to occupy time for the kiddos!! There were plenty of ice... More

Easy enough to find, and the front desk girls were very nice and easy on the eyes. Unfortunately their attire left a lot to be desired. It didn't match with anything else, nor portray a feeling of elegance. The room was nice and I enjoyed my stay.
