Reserved two rooms at this hotel for last weekend (7/25) and arrived, only to find dirty rooms. Doors, walls were dirty and smudged. If what one sees is this dirty, what about what is not easily seen (carpet, bedding, etc)? We checked out and found another Choice hotel in Glen Allen VA that was perfect. Unless you are partial to... More

If you want to wait for your breakfast and have to pay then this is the place for you. They don't start serving breakfast until 7 as well as they wont let you use the business center until 7. This place is definitely not for families if you want to have to explain to your children what a drag queen... More

Dear GeorgiaPch1968: Thank you for your recent review. Here at the Clarion Hotel, we welcome everyone and do not discriminate, even to the LGBT community. If the restaurant in our hotel would like to host drag shows to help drum up business, I don't see any reason why they should not. They do have shows booked through December. I just... More

We came down to see the Altoona Curve play the Squirrels. I was looking for other hotels but a lot of them were booked. I just happened to book this hotel not realizing how close it we to the Diamond ballpark. The room isn't bad for the price but a lot of rooms were not ready when check in time... More

I was a little leery pulling RIGHT off the interstate into the hotel. I was really worried about the noise. The room was on the interstate side but surprisingly quite. We only slept there and met my sister in the morning. Really nice, clean rooms. Pleasant staff. Definitely a place I would stay again.

We stayed one night at the Clarion. Our son had to have an early morning dental surgery and the hotel was kind enough to give us an incredible rate to give us close proximity to the hospital. The room was clean, we found no issues with the bathroom, fridge or microwave. There is some noise from the traffic, but nothing... More

This was a bit off the beaten track, but I think that was a good thing. It was immaculate, quiet and had the nicest, most accommodating staff. The pool was clean, also fairly quiet and right in front of our room

I'm from Richmond so I'm quite familiar with all the hotels & this was a reasonably priced hotel. When I visited from Miami I brought my boyfriend who has never been to RVA before. The location is very convenient because it's right next to the highway & between the Fan District & Downtown Area. We checked in smoothly at 2... More
