Easy to get to, but I do like hotels in a less busy area where you can walk to something besides a gas station. We stayed here because it has the big pool, game room, basketball court. Over half of the video games were broken when we stayed here, and the basketball court was being refinished, which I thought was... More

I wanted to thank you for choosing Clarion Hotel. I am sorry about the issues you experienced during your stay.

We stayed here four nights and couldn't have been more pleased. The front desk was friendly upon check-in and the room was modern, clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast the first day was a bit chaotic because there was a convention going on, so a line started about 20 deep outside the door on a Sunday morning. When we reached the... More

Thank you Clarion staff! The band PINK MARTINI and the von Trapps had a wonderful stay and you did a great job sorting out all 19 rooms that we needed. Smooth as silk and very pleasant! They loved amenities especially the indoor pool and basketball court!

As if the accommodations aren't great enough, the staff is even better! They are by far the most helpful, and polite staff I have ever dealt with! We had so many changes due to schedule conflicts, and they were able to accommodate everything as needed. Super quick responses to questions and whatnot. Highly recommended!
