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

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

Staff was exceptional from check-in to check out and the Lady handling breakfast was likewise Great. Problem is the place is dated. Mostly clean but room carpet needs cleaning--will darken your white socks so keep your shoes on. Beds were very comfortable as were the pillows.

We stopped here because they had king bed suites. The room was satisfactory until the people next door stood right outside smoking. The Bathroom door needed the latch fixed but it wasn't a problem for us.

Great location with remodeled rooms. The staff is great. Mary is an angel. Jordan hosts the evening cocktail hour that is welcomed after a long day. Charlotte & Mary host a delightful breakfast. It's was as quiet as a church during my stay. Request Building A.
