We stopped here on the way back home to Florida from Wisconsin. It was a last minute thing, but for $116 per night, we expected something better. It is smaller than most Clarions and does need an upgrade. The room we got had the worst view I think I have ever seen from a motel/hotel room. When I opened the... More

I totally agree with you about the roof line of the front entrance and those 2 rooms. I am not sure if it was because the building was built originally with a different canopy and then added on to when they doubled the size of the hotel in 2005. I think the original brand may have had something to do... More

We were passing thru the area and just needed a place to crash. It did the job. Hotel needs some TLC (stained carpet, rust and dirt on the walls, residue on the doors from old room number plaques). Parking lot is small and tight quarters as well as the breakfast area (didn't know where we were going to sit at... More

I was taking a trip to Chattanooga with my boyfriend. We were planning to stay from Monday to Friday, staying here from Tuesday to Friday. This hotel was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip! When we got there, everyone was very helpful, and welcoming. Our room was very nice. However, we were disapointed to not see a mini fridge in our... More

Loved this hotel. Clean and comfy. Nice air conditioning. Pool area was great for a family- goes to 5 ft. The nighttime check in staff was very kind and conversational. Would definitely stay again. The breakfast was good but busy. Overall, great place.

We were looking for something close to downtown, at a decent price, so we could go to the Hunter Art Museum, local restaurants, and the River Gorge Tour, and this place was perfect. The beds were soooo comfortable...and a quick jump on the freeway took us everywhere we wanted to go in a matter of minutes. The morning breakfast was... More

Hotel was clean, most staff were very nice. Not a lot of parking and small lot for parking. Would not recommend in winter weather with potential for ice/snow. Small hill to get up to parking lot.

This hotel is average in most ways but is VERY clean and has a VERY friendly staff and a GREAT, large breakfast. The breakfast area stayed crowded. The pool is small but serves its purpose....our kids got in it. We had no problems. for a 2 1/2 star hotel, it's great! Fast free wifi, too! Many advertise it and just... More

We decided at the last minute to take a family trip to Chattanooga for the 4th of July weekend and happened upon the Clarion Inn. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay.

We got a decent price for this place while we were passing through. It wasn't the cleanest place and the carpet was just old and icky. But the beds were comfy and it felt safe. The staff was friendly. It was just ok.
