My family stayed at the Clarion in a pinch as we were waiting for our house to close. Throughout the whole stay, the front desk staff was especially gracious and accommodating to us, despite our uncertainty regarding our length of stay and changing circumstances. Phyllis, Josh, and Shelley provided a hospitable welcome to the area; we decided if everyone in... More

My buddy and I stayed here in a pinch while our rental property was getting ready. We met the management early on, Phyllis and Susan. They took excellent care of us the entire time. Even each staff member, down to their maintenance man were a pleasure to deal with. The property was clean, and had excellent location to almost everywhere... More

Have used this hotel several times in the past, but this was the last time. Room was ok. Acceptable cleanliness. But still a bit disheveled. The big problem is the place is dirty on the ground floor. Step out of the elevator and the place reeks. The elevator cannot have been cleaned in months. The carpet is filthy and there... More

After checking in and heading up to my floor I noticed trash in the hallway and in my room the trash was not taken out what a wonderful first thing to see when you first walk into your hotel room. Overall cleanliness is horrible

I read reviews before booking this hotel, and many said it was being renovated and were not pleased. basically I only booked here because it was free using my rewards points from a credit card, and because we wanted to be close to Carowinds. The lobby is nice, but halls and elevator are odorous. There was clearly construction going on,... More

For the price this hotel provides the basics, is clean & across the street from the amusement park. Although I only ranked the hotel with 3 stars what made our experience a 5 Star, was Miss Phyllis at the front desk (who was there at all hours). Every time I passed through the lobby, she was extremely busy and always... More

We booked this hotel via hotwire.com, never having stayed in this area previously. We committed to the online booking and of course then saw the hotel booked. Pictures looked very nice and we thought we were all set. The promotional pics must have been airbrushed or taken by glamor shots. This place is a DUMP. I understand they are under... More

Please tell me I read your review wrong and you were not suggesting you should get a discount for bringing your dog to the hotel. Of COURSE you should pay more for bringing a dog! And of COURSE you should get a "dog room"! Besides the sanitary and wear-and-tear issues that dogs present, they greatly inconvenience other hotel guests. (Yes,... More
