I have stayed at this hotel numerous times on my way south. It was a Hampton Inn until a year or so ago. It is now a Clarion Inn. The carpets are dirty. The room smelled like urine, covered up with freshener. Tub drain was slow. It is just a seedy looking place now compared to how it looked in... More

Decent sleep, clean room, clean facilities. Basic needs met? Check. Nothing special. Bathroom is small, but workable. I was greeted nicely when I arrived. I slept well. If I had to kill 16 hours, I'd probably stay at a higher-level hotel (Hilton/IHG), but for a 8-12 hour stay, this did the job and I would stay here again. (Did not... More

I love a hotel that is clean and nice. the only thing I seen wrong was that the carpets in the rooms could use a cleaning but other then that it was great. I would stay here again cause it is close to what we want to do in tenn. and price was good probably would stay again next trip.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is an older hotel but it was clean. The bed was comfy and the staff was really nice and friendly. It is in a convenient location to Ruby Falls, Rock City and the Incline Railway. If we were to come back to this area we would stay here again.

We stopped here overnight for probably about 5 hours and for the price we weren't terribly impressed. It was a nice room, and staff was very friendly, but I would maybe look around and compare before booking.

I am very sorry you did not find what you were looking for at the Clarion even if it was just for a short visit. We are on the older side but try and make sure the hotel is clean and comfortable and full of hospitable friendly staff. For the hotels at our exit we are an in between rate... More

The staff are fantastic here. Right at check in the assistant manager ( can't remember his name, young guy from Michigan) made me glad I'd chosen this hotel. I couldn't ask for a more attentive and informed manager to deal with. He remembered my name throughout our multi day stay and made me feel at home. The rooms are clean... More

The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and had all the little amenities of of larger chains that are much more expensive. We had microwave, fridge, coffee pot, free wifi, etc. I especially enjoyed the breakfast. It was a full breakfast with eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal etc. even though it was listed as a continental breakfast.... More

Hotel needs updated. Carpets are stained. It smells musty. Bathrooms are old. Grout is broken. Beds are not too bad but bouncy. Bedding was fine. I was glad the bedspread was very thin because that meant hopefully it was washed each time. Couldn't find a good pillow out of 6 pillows. Towels are not bad. Internet connection kept kicking us...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have had a very busy few months and it was hard to keep up with the carpets when the hotel is full almost every night. Yes we are an older hotel that has not been renovated recently due to the previous owner not having the finances to so.... More

We arrived at the hotel late, but the staff couldn't have been friendlier to us. The room was great, and very clean. This hotel is a great value, and very, very clean. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in the area. Great Clarion!

Thank you for choosing the Clarion Inn for your recent trip to Chattanooga. It is always hard arriving late at night to a hotel because you never know what kind of person you are going to have at the front desk, the staff here is expected to be happy, friendly, helpful and professional not matter which shift they work.
