The rooms are large and clean. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast is better than any hotel I've been to in quite some time. The common area is well maintained and very family friendly.

I stayed one night at this hotel due to bad weather and a plane layover. The staff was very warm and friendly. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Both the breakfast and lunch were very good. There was also a free pickup to and from the airport. No complaints here.

We stayed at the Clarion over Thanksgiving 2014. The first two days were very crowded, but the staff took care of everyone. They had a very decent buffet breakfast. The rooms were large and kept very clean. Although we did not use the swimming pool or exercise room, both places were clean and well taken care of. Would definitely stay... More

I stayed at the Clarion for a work banquet. The banquet was fine, but the hotel was a wreck. Very outdated and dirty. The smoke alarm in our room was falling off the ceiling and did not work (we tested it). The management obviously does not care about the safety and comfort of their guests. On the bright side, the... More

I was looking for another hotel when I came across this beauty. The lobby looked Ritz-ey. Saved me more than expected with friendly room service. Easy access to highway but still quiet. only issue was with wi-fi being unavailable because it's serviced by Mediacom.

This is a great hotel to stay at if you want a simple room. I have stayed here about 10 times, and its always clean and quiet. The furniture isn't modern, but who cares. The staff are nice and there is free breakfast.

Our room was small and a bit outdated. The counters in the bathroom are extremely low and you have to bend over to use the sink. The housekeeping staff was very pleasant. The front desk staff seemed confused and unknowledgeable about restaurants in the area. The breakfast is what left the bad impression. It was horrible-the worst I have ever... More

I absolutely love this hotel. The staff are the best and they literally take customer service to beyond the call of duty. From the managers to the resturant staff, they understand the importance of customer service and take it to a level I rarely see and I sincerely appreciate it. I have stayed here several times and have always been... More
