Clean hotel, but worn out. Needs renovation badly. They only burn 40 watt bulbs in the lamps, so you cannot see how bad it is. (very dark in rooms). Would be nice if there was a door between sleeping area and wash basin area. My family had 6 rooms here and all felt they would not be back. Restaurant is... More

Hotel is old, cramped and more like a Motel ^ than a Clarion property. We had to be asked to move to another room before unpacking because the ac unit was shaking the pictures off the wall. Breakfast was advertise to begin at 6 am and food at the line never got there before 630. To top it off the... More

My sister and I were finishing a manuscript for a new book and needed to go somewhere quiet and clean so as not to have distractions. We chose the Clarion Inn. The employees were great and the rooms were very clean. The breakfast could include more options but overall it was great for us and we finished the manuscript and... More

Due to a golf tournament, everything in the surrounding area was sold out....except this location thankfully. The hotel was conveniently close to the Zoo. It looked slightly old and needs to be renovated, but the staff from the Housekeepers to the Guest Service Agent, Trina, were lovely. I would have to say the best feature of this hotel would have...

First off, to all of the negative reviewers, we ALL know what you paid for this room, right? If you want a "Ritz" room, then be ready to pay a "Ritz" price. If you can't hang with the "average Joe" then YOU should work harder so you can book at a resort instead. The prices are great, the rooms ARE... More

It is a very old hotel. You can tell as soon as you walk in your room you can tell. The wall sockets were coming out of the wall. The room was clean. The breakfast was below par. The only thing really good, were the people who work there.

I may be mistaken but I noticed a lot of Clarions were once Holiday Inns or other hotels that couldn't make it and folded, just my observation not fact. I have noticed that they would have been really nice properties to stay at 20 or 25 years ago. Don't ever book at a hotel solely on the pics they post... More

I received the best quality service, the room was in great condition, the front desk attendant was so pleasant, showed professionalism with a family oriented atmosphere and was very helpful. I will definitely stay there again in the near future.

Whoever is their photographer deserves a raise, the pictures make this place look worth your time. The non-smoking room was smoked out and dirty. After speaking to the front desk to cancel our room, she said there was nothing she could do for us...we werent even able to speak to a manager! After being so disgusted by the location, dirty/smelly... More

I stayed at this place last night. I thought the room was okay but not really to my liking. You entered all rooms from the outside and I didn't like that. They offered continental breakfast and it was decent. The staff was nice. I would stay somewhere else next time. Not my choice.
