The hotel was clean. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Prices were great and the breakfast is one of the best we've had from a hotel. Will be staying at this hotel again. We like to go off-roading at the nearby Golden Mountain atleast twice a year.

This hotel is an older property but it seems they have done everything right to make it the best it can be. Hotel front desk staff very good, breakfast included was really more than expected. Cook Cynthia and helper in breakfast area were wonderful. I was a bit concerned for security as there were multiple signs around the property about... More

Wouldn't give it a star but had to. Worse place I have ever stayed at especially for almost 100 bucks. Wifi didn't work pool wasn't warm. And the cops were so bad it must get bad there right? Well guess so since my mother on Mother's Day car got hit just sitting in the parking lot. Will never stay here... More

The hotel was clean and the staff great. Lynthia, the cook, Cayla,hostess and Clifford. the manager were especially nice. The pool was a little cold for me, I'm 71, but the hot tub was great. The hot breakfast was very good and the items were kept stocked. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there the next time I'm... More

Had been traveling all day and it was getting late - stopped at this hotel out of necessity and would not have chosen it otherwise. This was an old building with outside and inside corridors; we got the outside and there was noise with children running up and down the walkway. The bathroom was surprisingly large but again it was... More

This place was gross. I was afraid to walk around the room barefoot. The bathtub had lots of black mold. I had to wipe the dirt from the bottom of the dresser before putting our clothes inside. Couldn't sleep after spotting some kind of bug on the comforter (plus all the street noise) and just couldn't stop thinking about the... More

We were in town for a sccer tournament. We arrived and the door to our room was open. Every thing seemed to be in order but I did think the room was dated and not very clean. This morning I went to join my family for breakfast at 9:04 and they would not let me join them at all. Even... More

They gave us dirty paper cups for the coffee and went to the... More

My family and I went to Tennessee for my birthday/ spring break. With our destination being Piegon Forge. We were getting tired, so we decided to stop for the night. We were looking for a hotel that was reasonably priced yet a decent place to stay when we decided to try out the Clarion. The main lobby is very misleading.... More
