There was extensive construction going on. Everywhere. The room was okay, air conditioner worked, nothing wrong in the room. The service was good, they got us extra towels, pillows and blankets right away. Going for breakfast, had to go outside of hotel, of course it was raining and then more construction and a room at the back where the food... More

Heed the warnings. My second stay here and it's still under construction, not ever again. Looks like nothing has been done. I know a good construction company can make this hotel look much better and can keep it cleaner than it is. If the rate was a good bit lower I would stay here again. The room was not too... More

Ignoring the really annoying mess up on their sister hotels' part, and ignoring the charges we had to get refunded, I still struggle to say nice things about this hotel. I think the other reviews sum it up very well, and I simply would avoid staying here until the renovations are complete. We found the staff helpful, but the temporary... More

Don't stay at a hotel under construction. The parking was horrible, the parking lot was dark and dirty, littered with trash and no easy walkway to the hotel. The office was located in a room and it was tight and claustrophobic. The entire place was just dingy and dirty and we were on the side away from the construction! The... More

The staff seemed fairly decent but as far as the hotel itself and the rooms they are a dump. This hotel is way over priced for what you get. The room felt like it was damp and musty. It didn't seem very clean either. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had the unfortunate luck of getting stuck here while traveling for work after another hotel botched out reservation. Due to the Regatta, everything centrally located was completely booked (at least in terms of the rooms we needed) and so the company booked and prepaid here. We initially passed the hotel because at night, with no lights, it looked like... More

Spray Painted sign stating "temporary lobby" lead to rude, ignorant, disrespectuful Staff that never asked for my I.D., just my Credit Card. Smelly hallways, one working elevator, one working ice machine, NO WORKING Air conditioning on the fourth floor where my room that the floor was wet, toilet seat cracked room was located (Room 405) next to the other elevator...

Ah, yes, what has yet to be said about this Clarion in Greentree, which is commonly known as the hotel of perpetual construction? Check the reviews folks (I sure wish I had) and you’ll see that this place has been under construction for years! My family, and I’m sure countless others, initially had trouble even finding the place and had... More

The first thing we saw when pulling up to the hotel was a messy facade, with sign hanging from a vinyl banner, and a large sheet of plywood with "Temp. Lobby ->" spray painted on it. This did not match the photos I had seen online, and was not inviting in the least. The parking lot was very messy, with... More

In all my years of travelling, I have never stayed in a worse hotel. AWFUL! The hotel is undergoing a renovation. I checked in with my daughter as we were on college visits, thinking Clarion is a respectable brand, well this hotel was/is deplorable!!! It was late by the time we arrived and were exhausted, so we really did not... More
