I stopped at the Clarion on the way to New Orleans at a friends suggestion to eat at the restaurant located on the grounds of the Clarion and I ended up canceling my reservation at another local hotel and stayed the night at the Clarion. This will definitely be my go-to stop on the way to New Orleans. The whole... More

I absolutely love this hotel. We have stayed many times and will go back again if we are in the area. The beds are a dream, they try to accomedate any room request, and the Grove is a treasure. The staff is friendly and helpful.

I spend an awful lot of time in hotels of this caliber, usually with many complaints. I travel for work, and this is what my budget allows. I checked in without doing any research, and was instantly impressed! Super friendly desk clerk with actual MANNERS! Polite and helpful! WOW!!

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night while in town for an area festival. Nothing special but nothing horrible can be said about this property. Seemed clean but a bit outdated. The only main problem was the pillows....they were the insanely thin.

Started out ending a long trip with the counter guy in a bad mood, walked into a bathroom that a filthy toilet had been used and hadn't been flushed, and the room had centipedes and mosquitoes inside. I have been here before and loved it. Just wondering what happened.

I visited the meeting rooms back in 1998 but have not been back until 2014 when I attended a class reunion in the Conference Center. I was totally impressed with the facility from the lobby, on- site restaurant Mike Anderson's, the banquet rooms, the catering staff, the pool area, the courtyard and the sleeping rooms. Even though the rooms open... More

I stayed 2 days here for a conference, and never had to leave the hotel! There is an amazing restaurant on site for every meal. You can have a drink and catch a game there if you want also. The staff was very friendly and accommodating as well.

This is my second stay (company booked) and I still don't get it! The entrance to Clarion is impressive, but the actual rooms are "nothing to write home about!" This is a motel.
