I honestly can say that this hotel is not in a good area.This hotel is located next to a Greyhound bus station very near a high crime neighborhood.Some of the towels were badly worn and un-threading.Some of the linens (pillow cases) were old and discolored. The room we stayed in was typical in amenities.It is quiet except for house keepers... More

This Hotel is now called the Carliton Inn. I tried to stay there but they could not find my reservation from Travelocity after 50 minutes of waiting, they made me call Travelocity and after another 30 minutes, still no room. I gave up and went to the Courtyard Marriott and got my refund from Travelocity.

We booked with Travelocity. On our way there they called and informed us they didn't have the room we booked so we had to have 6 people in a king bed with a roll away they gave us. It was clean for the most part however there was a lot needing fixed and cleaned, like the fly smashed to the... More

We stayed at this hotel on vacation. When we walked in, they hotel staff didn't have our reservation and we had to wait 30 mins to check in until they found it. We finally got to our room which was pretty nice. Big bed, new tv, new furniture. Unfortunately, there were people drinking and arguing outside until 3am). I called... More

The staff is very nice and friendly. That is the only thing good about this hotel. The hotel boasts a Clarion sign but is not a Clarion and has not been for years. The front of hotel is unkempt and the pool needs cleaned and the furniture at the pool needs repairs and updating. There is long hair in the... More

I put some of my employees here to stay while they worked on a job site near by. The guys had complaints from day 1 stating the hotel was nasty and ghetto. We primarily only use Wyndham and Choice hotels which is why we originally booked this hotel. Midway through our stay they changed their name and started charging us... More

I'm embarrassed to event admit I slept here one night. My room was booked via Hotwire so it was already paid for. After being assaulted by the smell...enough of us have mentioned it, it's true! I got to my prepaid room and the door wasn't latched because it was broken. Ok, they may not know so back to the lobby... More

The cops were called 3 times the evening we arrived. The "lounge" is no more than a shady night club with bouncers at the entrance. Management gave us a can of bug spray to take care of a yellow jacket nest on the balcony. The odor in the room was awful. The a/c would not stay on and cool the... More

All the elevators reeked of marijuana it was obvious the staff could've cared less. Our room had excessive urine stains on the sheets, when we complained they moved us to... More

Was in the process of planning a girls weekend getaway, we had planned to stay at this hotel. While in the process of checking the amenities it showed there was a free breakfast and a shuttle bus service. That was the two main reasons that we we're going to stay at this hotel. So I reserved the room and when... More
