Traveling to AL from MI, we decided to stop for the night. The room was really dated and small. The bath was huge but had no counter space and the wallpaper was peeling in the shower area. I believe the bed was a memory foam one,but my hubby didn't sleep well and woke up with a sore back.

The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the air worked great. Very quiet could not hear I65 at all. Pool was clean and so was the room. Check in was informative as the girl knew the area. Would stay there again.

The out door pool was very clean, and nice atmosphere, we brought the grand kids for swimming, they had a blast. The breakfast buffett was the normal free... More

This hotel is clean and a great value. This was a weekend trip to "Mammoth Cave" and "The Lost River Cave". We required two rooms for four adults and grandchildren. I had asked to be close to the pool when I made the reservations. I was so happy when our rooms were directly in front of the pool. After touring... More

This was another decent stay at the Clarion. The room was clean, the shower was hot, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was adequate, it was nothing incredibly fancy, but still very good. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in town.

We stayed two nights. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Breakfast was awesome. The staff was friendly. We requested a room by the pool. The kids loved being able to step outside and have easy access to the pool. Will stay here again if in the area.

Stopped here on the way home to Atlanta. The lady at the front desk was super friendly and even showed us the room prior to checking in. Room was very clean but definitely showed age. Overall, a fine place to rest.

Upon entering the room, we found stained bottom sheets on both double beds and some sort of winged bug hanging out on the curtain. The occupancy for our room was four, yet it provided only two towels. After a quick trip to the front desk, we were provided two towels and new sheets. The desk clerk assured us that the... More
