I understand that there are some negative reviews, and it was kind of a deterrent, but we decided to go ahead and stay. I think I ran into the Crabby Hotel Clerk - okay - she looks pregnant and is hormonal, but if you had just checked in three busloads of people like another person said was done - you... More

Stayed a night here and the first thing that greets you as you walk in to reception is the swimming pool and hot tub. A large number of the rooms circle the pool and hot tub,odd lay out,but it isn't bad. The rooms are a good size and the bed is comfortable,with fridge. The breakfast is a mix of hot... More

Worse hotel stay ever. Arrived at 3 pm did not get room until 6 pm. Reservations made 3 months earlier and paid in full.Rooms not clean and available. Cooks walked out on management night before. Only 1 desk clerk available to check in guests which included 3 bus loads of Chinese tourists. An absolute circus!

There noise level in our room exceeded 100 decibels because of a reception in the lobby. When I called the office I was told there was nothing they could do because. When asked to be moved to another room, I was told there were none available. The party would last until midnight.. The manager was not available either. I paid... More

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
