Walking into this hotel was cool. There is a big courtyard with a pool, jacuzzi, play area, tables and large breakfast area. This area had obviously been renovated. The rooms were just average, but large. I would suggest if they are going to make things look newer and nicer to also get new sheets, comforters and dust ruffles. This would... More

After being on the motorcycles all day and extremely tired we were not about to look for another place as we had reservations. It is obvious they are working on the place, but the first room we were given had no lamps - they were still sitting in the hallway...the air did not work. We were given a 2nd room... More

We should not have stayed here when we found out they were under construction/remodeling. We were traveling cross country with 2 cats, they are a pet friendly hotel. When I checked in there were tools on the counter from some work being done, an unfriendly desk associate who told me the pet charge is a "per pet" policy. I had... More

As soon as we checked in to this Clarion Inn, we suspected that this must be one of the old Holiday Inn "HoliDome". The indoor pool, dining, fitness center and a playground is loacted in a inddor courtyard around the hotel rooms. We have stayed at multiple "converted HoliDome" around the country owned by various hotel chains (e.g. Ramada Inn,)... More

This place is in the middle of doing major renovations and upgrading, so they can't really be berated at this time. However, CRT TV. Really!? Come on, this is the 21st century. And the wi-fi is a nightmare. I had good strong signal, but it just wouldn't keep me signed in. Every time you get logged out, it's a major... More

I didn't like my stay at the Clarion Inn because I found the staff not really nice. Our tour guide has been confirmed that we would have in our room a fridge and a microwave and when me noticed that it wasn't the case we didn't get any of those, the staff member didn't do anything (even showing sympathy). Swimming... More

We apologize for your experience at our hotel. Most rooms do have microfridges and in a few weeks all of the rooms will be equipped with them. We are undergoing an extensive renovation which will be complete in July and during your stay we had to temporarily close the pool because the ceiling above was being painted. If you should... More

I stayed in room 301 for one night on May 29 with tour group. The decoration and Tv of the room is out dated from 70s. The lobby was dark and renovated everywhere.

We recently stayed and it was wonderful. The front desk lady Michele was beyond friendly. She made sure we had everything we needed. The pool was amazing. Water was always warm and perfect for kids. Our bed was very comfortable. Rooms were very clean. I am very satisfied with the hotel. We will be returning.

Stayed in a suite for 1 night in late March and it was great! We had "neighbors" and couldn't hear them at all and vending right down the hall was great. I thoroughly check all hotel rooms immediately for hair and other imperfections and I found NONE which was a great surprise since the Hilton we stayed at 3 days... More
