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.

Poor wifi connection. I had to play with it for over an hour before I could get the connection to stay up. There was no extra electric plugs for my electronics. The chair was so filthy that I would not set on it. The curtains would not close so I had to get a safety pen to keep them closed.... More

I'll start with the good: My bed was clean and comfortable. That's very important. Now the not so good: There was a brochure in the room stating there was a restaurant and lounge that was open from 5 till 10pm. What I found was neither. I did find 3 people sitting on the lobby furniture. Couldn't tell if two of... More

Booked this hotel for myself and my dog and was very pleased. Room was tidy and clean, bed was nicely made when we came home in the evening. The front desk agent was very helpful and gave great dinner recommendations. The only critique I have is the ice machine needs directions. I stared at it for several minutes looking for... More
