We stayed at this hotel because it was cheap. The room was spacious and clean. The cons why I wouldn't stay here again: 1. In a bad area of town 2. A group of men/women would hang out in the back parking lot of the hotel. Even on the 7th floor, you can hear the crowd talking between the hours... More

Stayed on October 31. There was an intense disagreeable deodorant smell in the room and the hallway. There was some event going on that produced loud thumping "music" until 12:00 midnight. The room had oversize padded chairs that crowed the space. The window (sliding door) could not be opened. The closet clothes hangers let the clothes drop to the floor... More

this hotel was out in the middle of no where, and really worried about the safety of my vehicle. after checking in with the front desk agent, who took 20 minutes to check me in, only to walk into a room that smelled like someone literally had passed away in the room. thank god there was a patio door that...

We are sorry that your stay was less than pleasant. Some may think our location is less than desirable but we have no issues here at the Clarion our lot is well lit at night and we have cameras on the premisis just for added security. The glass on the roof top is a mystery being that we are 7... More

Overall pleasant stay. Front desk receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would suggest is use less perfume/air spray throughout the hotel. It was slightly overwhelming. Room was clean as was bathroom.

My aunt and I stayed here for one night on the night of July 5, 2014. It was a family reunion weekend. The staff that night was nice and the room that we had was nice as well. It was a little expensive for one night. Breakfast was good the next day however I did not like the fact that... More

There were few other options with decent reviews and reasonably priced on the weekend we stayed due to numerous events in town. The neighborhood is sketchy at best. The area might be safe but it doesn't feel safe to someone who doesn't know the area. We are always safety conscious but we were extra vigilant on this stay. There is... More

We here at the Clarion are sadden to hear that we didn't meet all your expectations. Being that we have a restaurant on premises we do not offer a continental breakfast. We do hope you come back to visit us again so that we may make your next experience pleasant and unforgettable More

Police and unmarked police car out front in the morning.extra charge for breakfast after overcharging us for the room with a very dirty bathroom.

Dear Guest I sincerly apologize for all the inconviences you experienced. We have a police officer that works here part time for extra money it has nothing to do with our area.

This property is the worst location I have ever stayed in. Was booked 3 rooms for a week, after one night I moved my entire reservation to a different hotel. The property was dirty, a police car stationed out front all night, I was even afraid to let my kids walk the dog. To charge $5 extra for the breakfast... More

As I write this I'm in the room. It's ghetto! I mean really bad, on par with the bad motels you see in movies. If you do insist on staying here, don't forget the bug spray and your flip flops because you won't want to touch the carpet. This place doesn't need a renovation, it needs a bulldozer. I'm pretty...
