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

This is not the place for two older ladies to stay alone by any means. Prostitutes out front when we returned from dinner. 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. The housekeeper needs glasses if she can't see the dirt behind the trash... More

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...

If you like a pig pen, this is your place. The lobby is the only place there is so-so. The rest there isn't enough words to describe. There breakfast area is filthy. The room smelled bad. Whatever you pay above $30 is too much. I really wonder how anybody gave 5 star for this place. Probably was done by the... More

It stands out in an urban neighborhood you wouldn't want to be in after midnight. Inside, the front desk clerk was uncooperative, the internet server did not work and the floor and bathroom was dirty.

Need a cheap alternative around Charleston this inn is just off Rt 26 and about 3 mi from the downtown peninsula. It's pet friendly, but don't expect free breakfast. Staff was very nice and rooms were better than average.
