3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

we stayed over night here because we attended an event in the Ballroom. Overall the room was fine. It had a refrigerator and micro wave. King size bed that was comfortable. Room appeared clean. Two minor issues, I wanted to use the room safe but it didn't work. Called the front desk and they sent up a maintenance guy to... More

I have stayed here multiple times on business. Staff is friendly, polite and helpful. Hallway had a slightly strange smell but nothing overpowering. Room clean and comfortable. Fridge, microwave, iron. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was on the smaller side but not cramped and is well lit. Breakfast is a good selection of cold and hot foods. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, biscuits...

I stayed here on Sunday December 20th for one night. The General Manager Greg Scott was so nice and took care of anything that I needed. The facility was taken care of real good. The front desk clerks were very friendly, open, and very easy to get anything we needed. I had a problem of a missing remote for the... More

Stayed at this Clarion for one night while visiting CR this past weekend. For the price range this hotel typically offers I think it is a good deal. The room was clean and comfortable. Check-in was easy and efficiently done. The hot breakfast was good, nothing spectacular but far better than the "lobby breakfast" some other places offer. There are... More

On a return trip over the holidays, we stopped at the Clarion. We did web searches to find accommodations and were surprised to find a room here (two adults - two queen beds) for $69.99 plus tax. I was initially concerned about the proximity of the rail line but since there was no crossing at which horns were sounded and... More

I absolutely love this hotel! I love the nostalgic look, the staff is amazing and the rooms are top notch. From the moment you walk through the door until you leave, you're treated like family. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfy-cozy! They love your pet too! In fact, the front desk has treats... More

I stayed here the night before attending a conference at the hotel. The rate was decent ($80 or so), but I felt that (other than the lobby) the facility was dated and unclean. I stayed in a non-smoking room, but noticed upon entering that my room had an odor. Other parts of the property -- especially near the fitness room... More

The person working the desk (turned out to be Spring - a Manager!) didn't acknowledge my presence, continued on the phone. I asked about checking in a little early; instead of answering yes or no, she started asking me questions. And questions for which she should have already had answers based on my reservation and the fact I'd stayed there... More
