I thought the price was a little high for the room accomadations. Room was somewhat dated but very clean. The indoor "atrium" was awesome, well maintained, planned and cared for. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lounge/dining was reasonable, food very good and moderately priced for a hotel. I understand from the staff that it is full and busy on game... More

I've stayed here before but it seems this time, the rooms are upgraded and the staff is nicer and more responsive. One further improvement would be to change the carpet in the atrium.

While walking to the room we noticed an odor that smelled like smoke, upon entering the room there was an odor of something wet, possibly the carpet. We turned up the air thinking the odor would diminish with fresh air. It did not so we called for a different room, the staff was very accomodating moving us across the hall.... More

Nicely renovated with pleasant indoor pool area. Our expectations were low since we knew it was not a new facility. They have done a good job decorating the rooms and the inside pool area and breakfast area were spacious and pleasant to relax in.

I have been to Waco several times. This hotel offers free wireless internet and has an excellent breakfast buffet for $5.00 if you like a sausage, bacon, and egg breakfast. They also offer a complimentary breakfast. The atrium area for their breakfast is spacious, landscaped and offers an indoor swimming pool

We are local folks and recently stayed 2 nights at the Clarion due to some work being done at our home. The stay was OK; not the best hotel we have ever stayed in and not the worse either. Rooms are small and dated, but they are clean. The atrium area is beautiful and pleasant and has a nice indoor... More

Stayed here while visiting Baylor University. Pictures online look much better than hotel does in person. Sketchy neighborhood. Room is small. Front desk moved us from an outside facing room to an inside room next to the atrium. At 6 a.m. sharp until we checked out there was non-stop noise from the breakfast crowd. Chairs screeching on concrete. It sounded... More
