Stayed for two days. At check-in, no staff member in sight. Waited several minutes and considered using the hotel phone to call the front desk! Room was beautiful until we sat in the bathroom and noticed the black mold in the shower...eew! Management is currently renovating the front area, so breakfast service was moved to an upstairs conference room. No... More

For reasons I couldn't begin to guess, Priceline included in this hotel in its 2 1/2 star listings. As you know, when you booked through Priceline, you do not get to choose the place you stay. This hotel is rated at 2 1/2 stars, which is two stars too many. It's dirty everywhere. The breakfast area is laughable to the... More

We stayed here one night as we were passing through town and after reading other reviews were unsure of how it was going to be. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The room (while in need of updates-had peeling wallpaper, etc) was clean and the bed was comfortable. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, breakfast was hot (though... More

It is a little confusing when you do a search on your GPS but this hotel used to be a Best Western Hotel. They had signs advising of renovations in progress but I did not see any. My room was very clean. Pillows were fair and could be replaced. Breakfast was good. Seating area is ok. Front desk staff were... More

I could not believe that I paid 139 per night for a room that was dirty. There was hair all in the shower, even on top of the shower wall! The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall, the shower curtain rod was the same, so the curtain constantly fell into the middle, causing water to get everywhere in... More

There was black mold in the shower, tape on the shower head, and a terrible musty smell. Run for the hills! This place was disgusting. It was way over priced for what we got. Our soccer team was booked for a tournament and all greatly disappointed.

We arrived at this hotel to signs of "Pardon our dust - renovations in progress" and immediately cringed. This has happened to us in the past and it usually means the hotel is filthy. Not so here! This hotel was surprisingly very clean, quite comfortable, and located in a very nice area. The front desk staff was very helpful to... More

I've stayed at this location before when it was owned by another chain. Clarion just took it over a month or so before we stayed here. They had painted all the rooms so they are a little brighter and fresher. I think they've updated some of the furniture, not sure about that. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows... More
