I didn't listen to the other reviews and took the leap- I'm quite regretful of that choice! I understand the hotel is under renovations so... In their defense it may be better in 6+ months!! Took it for the price bc it was only for one night, but it's not worth it! Worst part(s): bed!!!! I think the bed is... More

Had a reservation for Labor Day weekend. Arrived at night to see CAUTION TAPE surrounding front desk! (That should have been a dead giveaway!). Too tired from the drive so we went to the room. Originally had hotel booked for 3 nights. After seeing the room, especially the bathroom with a cracked bathtub and an OPEN SLIVER OF SOAP IN... More

Staying at the Clarion Inn was truly a horrible experience. First off, the Inn was under construction so we were denied access to the elevator, pool and gym. When we got to the top of the stairs with all of our luggage the only thing we could smell was urine. That alone made me question the cleanliness of the facility.... More

We just checked in and we are very exhausted after traveling all day. The construction is unreal. No elevator. The hall smells of pee. The room smells. The springs are coming thru bed. The tv is awful. Bad location. Very unsatisfied for the cost.

When my husband made our reservation, he was told we would be in a newly renovated queen with lake view. When we arrived at the hotel, it was a total construction site. The front desk and lobby were a mess. The ceiling above the desk was gone. The hallways are covered with plastic sheeting. In short, the hotel is not... More

Unfortunately, we did not know the hotel was under construction. With short notice, it was the only hotel with rooms available the night we stayed. I wouldn't go back, at least not until the construction is done. The room wasn't the cleanest. There was construction noise. Breakfast was terrible. We were the only ones there, yet It took at least... More

Stayed for one night. Front desk was cordial and accommodating and we had no issues. However the lobby area and most of the corridors are in rough shape due to the extensive remodeling. I think that things will be much improved in the near future.

Well, the hotel is currently in full interior and exterior construction, what I had not expected, it's actually a construction site and the hotel should not have to remain open during major change. I booked a room with king bed, and when I enter the center of the king was bent in the middle and touched the floor. It has... More

The Clarion Inn is a fine place to rest your head for the night, but is generally in poor condition and could use a remodel. Spend one night here during the "Ultra Around the Lake" marathon and 24 hour relay; a bed was a nice respite from the run, but the Clarion Inn is pretty run down.

Thank you for your review. We are in the process of a very large renovation right now. All guest rooms as well all public areas will be completely redone. We hope to see you next year for the ultra marathon so you can see all the changes. More
