Friendly service and decent rooms. Pretty clean. No complaints. Free wifi and pool. Laundry is okay. Breakfast is awesome. Definitely will be staying at this fine place again several more times this year for sure. Thank you Clarion for making my stay as close to being at home as possible

got the standard discounts ,but the room was so-so and the hotel old but somewhat renovated. the price was OK but the breakfast was somewhat lacking in quality. Not the best value for the money spent.

Stopped at this hotel for an overnight stay while traveling. Front desk clerk was very nice. He gave us a room at the end of the hall because he said it would be quiet as we were exhausted and just wanted to take showers and go to bed. The hotel is showing its age a bit but it looks like... More

Really nice rooms. The sleeping arrangements are nice and modern but the bathrooms I can tell are dated as the grout around the bathtub is dirty. The staff is really nice. The other great thing is that each time after a person visits they install a new toilet seat so there is less bacteria lying around on the seat.

We stayed here 3 nights, the last night the wedding reception we were attending, was held here. The reception was nice, the service at the reception was great, the staff here is friendly, rooms nice & clean. We would stay here again. Oh and the price was very reasonable.

My family and I had a great time! Very friendly service, very clean and very accommodating in all aspects! The pool and hot tub was a BIG plus along with the delicious continental breakfast! Will definitely suggest to others!

Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating (especially the night auditor; I think her name is Kat?). Breakfast was amazing. Incredible that they have a free breakfast considering it's a full service hotel. Internet was good. Room was comfortable and clean (except for very long hair in shower). Even though hotel was older, it was in very good shape. They gave... More
