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

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 Very outdated and dirty.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.
