My better half and I stayed here as a quick overnight before a very early flight the next morning. It turned out there was a national volleyball tournament in town, so finding any available rooms was a real challenge. The hotel itself is in adequate shape.

Over night while on the road working and found this hotel - with parking for the tractor as well as pet friendly. A little pricey and pretty much the same as a LaQuinta or Quality Inn as far as appearance and what was offered. Peter at the front desk was a pleasure to work with while checking in. As indicated...

My experience with the Clarion Hotel was quite wonderful. The staff was there every step of the way to help us and our 400+ guests! Georgene was a huge help with every last detail....even when vendors didn't show up like they we're suppose to. I couldn't have asked for better customer service. Though the place may look a little run... More

Was there, on the 4th floor, for 10 days. The hot tub did not work for 8 days "waiting for a part". The pool was very cold and was closed for a short time while the hot tub was being repaired. After 2 nights of a running commode, it was replaced. The elevator broke so stairs were used for a... More

The room ballroom was a great place to hold any event. The staff was great to work with - accommodating, helpful, pleasant. Georgene had great ideas and was there every step of the way to make sure our event went off perfect. Having everything accessable for our guests was a plus.
