We stopped thru to stay the night on our way home from vacation. We booked it thru Priceline. It was dirty and dingy. I was afraid to walk around barefoot or sleep under the covers. I put a chair against the door at night when I slept.

Fortunately I personally stayed elsewhere but my buddy David made a mistake trying to save a dollar. Sheets appeared to have not been made - bed was "popped". Wi-Fi nonexistent, totally worn out furniture Salvation Army special, only 1 working lamp & ceiling was peeling. He complained & was given a cleaner room but the sofa can best be described... More

Stayed here after transporting several buses of troops to Camp Shelby. The room was okay. Wifi was nonexistent. The bed was comfortable but it had 5 small pillows instead of regular size ones. They should have been on the couch because they were the size of throw pillows. Ice maker didn't work. Building C is pet friendly while buildings A... More

Both TripAdvisor and the hotel itself advertised rooms at rooms at 60 per night. When I asked the rate I was told the rate was 79. They said all the rooms for 60 were sold out but it looked like the place was empty to me. And the huge sign was on the front of the hotel advertising the special... More

Deonta, you are one of Clarion's prized employees! They should reward you well! When we checked in, the system was down. We all know what it's like when 4 people are waiting in line and your computer decides to not cooperate. Deonta kept his cool, explained everything, and got everyone checked in with a very professional attitude. Most people would... More

Our reservations were transferred from the Holiday Inn as we booked in Hotels.com. So beware. The toilet had been used and not flushed, the ice bucket top had been used for an ash tray and not replaced and there was a brown stain on the blanket. We only had a sheet and blanket, no comforter or spread. The carpet was... More

But even during the present time, the rooms are still really nice AND CLEAN. Just like any other place that has been stayed in quite a bit, The rooms have a... More

We stayed here twice in 10 days on a trip from Michigan to New Orleans and back. Their breakfast was the best we had during our 10 days trip-great sausage, bisquits & gravy that all tasted home made. Definitely made the price of the room worth it. Staff was very helpful in finding the room we wanted both times, and... More
