3 night stay. Getting out of the hot tub and pool we stunk like too much chemicals. Room was ok. Big king size bed and comfortable. Some staff there just don't listen to what you say and and when they are too busy trying to finish talking about their personal life at the breakfast buffet when a customer is standing... More

2nd stay here. Last time we stayed it was a courtyard but they have changed the name. Regardless it was just as good. Clean and friendly. Close to highway. Wish they had a free breakfast. Right now I believe their breakfast buffet is $11. Free coffee and fridge in room which is very nice.

Arrived at 5pm on Sunday. There was just one old church van in the parking area. There was no indication the hotel was functioning. Upon entering, the front desk staff was helpful with a quick checkin. We were given a room in the 2nd floor. We had 4 heavy luggages. We went around looking for elevator. Couldn't find one. Asked...

Friendly staff, decently clean. When i stepped out of the shower to grab a towel the whole towel bar fell. The sink didnt drain. Had to request new iron because it didnt work. Overall a few problems i was later compensated for my struggles. That makes a difference when management is helpful and understanding that my money is good... i... More

Great experience at the hotel/lodge. I booked a 3-night stay at this hotel. I got a great price through a discount sight and ran into a problem with the reservation. However, the front desk manager worked to resolve the issue and made sure we were satisfied upon our arrival. The entire staff was very professional and friendly. This hotel does... More

A very pleasant stay. Great breakfast buffet with lots of choices. Room was very comfortable. I also appreciated the amenities such as computers in the lobby, the exercise room and the pool with jacuzzi. The one thing that could have been better was the shower. It had very low water pressure and was hard to get the temperature adjusted. I... More

Reading some of the reviews, I was not sure if I wanted to stay here. I was pleasantly surprised. There are some problems, but this is with the building (see cons below) The management told us they are going to remodel soon. Cons: No elevator Little bit dated (nor too bad but slightly) Road noise facing highway Pros: Very nice... More

I've never stayed in a Clarion Inn before and will not be staying again. It was decent, but the bathroom and sink outside of the bathroom were dirty upon arrival. The sheets were mostly yellow instead of white (which they obviously should have been). The only good things about the room were the fridge and microwave.

I got this room for a good price on a hotel deal sight. I stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in the area. The grounds of this hotel are very pretty.

Above average for a Clarion Inn, as I just stayed in 1 earlier this week in a different town that was a dump. This location though has clean and comfortable beds, with good quality pillows. AC blows very cold. Wifi was fast and reliable. Bathroom and shower were clean. Front desk staff was friendly. No road noise even though I-65... More
