There are so many things I don't know where to start!! I have stayed here before and it was a couple of years ago-it definitely wasn't like this then! First of all, we stayed a week with several types of rooms... So we have a list! It was 100 degrees outside and we had air conditioners that did not work!... More

Outlet's hanging out the wall, sheets didn't fit the bed( we had a king and it was queen sheets on it) Not... More

Clean hotel. Great value for the price. And close to a lot of great things like wal-mart, waffle house, a bbq joint among other things. Decent continental breakfast (they have a hot breakfast but it is like $6, continental has cereal, yogurt, fruit, waffles, toast, bagels, along with coffee and juices.

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.
