    They booked me for another stay in this motel for business. This visit was a much better experience in regard to the room. It was acceptably clean and they were able to accommodate my request for a downstairs room. Since they have no elevators, it was much easier for me to transport luggage by being on the bottom floor.

    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.

    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 Seemed clean but a bit outdated.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.
