This has been a convenient stopping place between home and Florida and was our 2nd stay here. Still a little confusing to get to front desk, behind another hotel which is behind an abandoned hotel. Sounds menacing but they sure could help their cause with some better signage and lighting. Staff contact was limited but friendly.

Rabway1313, Thank you for giving us another chance even though you thought we were average the first time you stayed as well. The hotel in the front of the parking lot is not our property and the situation is out of our hands. Although the city of Tupelo is pressing the owner for demolition and it should be demolished this... More

The staff was amazing. Upgraded us to a better room free of charge! It was very clean and remodeled. Def will be our go to place for shopping trips. The interior was so cute n loved the pretty staircases. But above all the service was best!! But the only places we usually stay are choice brand hotels!!

Stayed here for work twice this month and enjoyed it both times. Very clean, nicely appointed rooms, great breakfast, attentive front desk service. Would stay here again no problem and would recommend it to visitors. Don't let the empty hotel that this is behind sway you off. A little hard to find, just keep going to the back of the... More

What a find! Family owned and operated what a jewel! Stay in the Elvis Suite if you dare! Jimmy Pappas is the Prince of Tupelo! Civic minded this Summit Center feeds 1500 with incredible Greek flair! I highly recommend this Clarion and the Sunday Brunch!

All staff, desk, bar, & breakfast personnel were pleasant and professional. Facility is quiet. They offer popcorn and 2 free drinks during evening. Our "king" room, 708, was extra large and comfortable. Had a 4-poster bed that had a step stool that could be used to get into it. Kinda cool. Wi-fi is fine.

Read other reviews which were mixed but decided to give it a try. Was pleasantly surprised. Yes it is hidden behind a vacant motel and a Rodeway and it is older, but the lobby and breakfast area was nice and the room was clean and spacious and pet friendly. Only problem we had was we could hear the people in... More

We had a convention at the Summit Center. Most everyone stayed at the Clarion Inn. I think we booked almost every room they had. I know our suite was really nice. There were bottles of cold water waiting in the fridge for us. The rooms were very clean, and the bed felt better than mine at home! The suite is... More

Let me start by saying the staff at this hotel is awesome! Super friendly, super helpful, very nice (especially the woman working the front desk evening shift). The hotel itself is a little hard to find and is located behind what seems to be a couple of deserted buildings (seems like a sketchy area). The lobby and breakfast area have... More

This is an older hotel that has been maintained reasonably well. It is a little dated. It is clean comfortable. Is is a little difficult to find as it is next to another hotel( roadway inn I think) and you have to go through that parking lot. All the staff especially Kathy are great. Good breakfast.
