We got a room on the first floor, it was clean and since we were only there as a stopover, it did the job. The rooms are a little dated looking. The breakfast was quite good for a budget hotel. It is right off the highway and near a lot of restaurants too.

Wow. Was sooo surprised to see this previous Holiday Inn that I used to take my children to over the years change hands. That being said, as I lay here in this god forsaken bed w no A C and a fan that the front desk brought me without asking for and my 13 yr old son afraid and wondering... More

If I could give a negative rating, I would. This will need to suffice... I could not find a working ice machine anywhere. Even though the hotel was almost completely empty, I was put as far away from the front desk as possible... this hotel had a nice atrium with rooms that faced inside. And finally, when I had difficulty... More

We stay here every year and it's probably the best chain hotel in the area. The suites on the third floor are the largest rooms in the area and definitely good if you need space. The staff is friendly and it's nicely located off the highway with restaurants and stores nearby. Good if you want to visit the outlet mall... More

We stayed here 5 days. Room little outdated but it was very clean. Staff very friendly. Nice pool area. The complimentary breakfast was not very good. The eggs, meat & pancakes or French toast sticks were cold & one morning they were rock hard & uneatable. We did not go into the restaurant or bar. We had an inside room,... More

I don't leave a lot of reviews, although I read them quite often, but after the experience I have had here I felt the need to share our experience as a warning to those looking for a place to relax, rest and have some privacy.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. I apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. Upon inspection of the room, there is a blackout privacy blind that was behind the sheer and the curtain. Those are decorative curtains and are not meant to close.

We wondered at first, arriving without a reservation, when the clerk struggled on her computer to check us in. But the manager intervened, and we were soon fine. A well-furnished, well-maintained facility in a convenient location. The hot breakfast buffet was fine, and the Texas Corral across the street provided a good dinner option.

So, yesterday afternoon, I checked into the Clarion, knowing full well that I needed a late check out as a result of a bike race I was in the next day. At first, Stacey and Heavenly (the front desk clerks) said there was no way I could get the late check out. I expressed my dissatisfaction, and mentioned that I... More
