Spent the last week of June staying here. As far as the hotel goes I guess it worked for what we wanted but it was a kinda strange place. The elevator stunk bad! There is no lock on the outside doors to the hallway to the rooms. No security at all. It says you have to swipe your key but... More

We had a long drive from FL and every place we usually stay was booked. There were Clarion/Quality Inn signs, so we weren't sure which it was. The room smelled of cigarette smoke and was dark. The refrigerator was missing, so my husband went to the ice machine to get ice to keep our insulin cold, and the machine was... More

Stayed here for a night during a basketball tournament (the tournament had some deal with the hotel for $59/night) I was a little leery of staying here after talking with someone who had stayed the previous night, but was pleasantly surprised that everything was pretty good overall. No issues with the room, staff was friendly and helpful, check-in was fast.... More

We had a non smoking room that smelled terrible. At first we had thought it was a smoking room by mistake. Out side on the balcony was a soda can that was used as an ashtray. I am not sure how long it had been there, but was not cleaned during the few days we were there. The balcony would... More

CHECK-IN --they didn’t know to credit the amount taken out of my card due to late arrival to that same night’s stay --so was therefore charged twice for first night --printed out an incorrect agreement and I had to persuade him of it --failed to recognize me as a Gold Elite Choice Member --told me that breakfast was a buffet...

There was nothing special about this place. They do have a new restaurant that is a second location for Nacho Mama's. The hotel was full for a wedding and we did not have any noise problems nor complaints. The room did what we needed it to do. We had a pleasant stay

Stayed here on May 16, 2014 and was a tad leery after reading the reviews. However, our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Room smelled a bit musty because the A/C had been turned off, but after it ran for a bit that cleared up. The pool area looked awesome (we didn't use because of time) and they... More

I checked into the Clarion Hotel (3207 North Blvd) in Richmond on May 17, 2014. After reading reviews from Google, who gave it three stars, we were excited to find a reasonably priced hotel on a spontaneous trip to Richmond. Immediately upon entering the "non-smoking" room, we were overcome with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. The room was reasonably... More

As a Diamond member of the Choice Privileges frequent guest program, I stay at Choice hotel properties quite frequently, of which Clarion is one. Clarion is one of the more prestigious brands in that hotel family, so I expect a bit more than average when I stay at one. This hotel did a good job of living up to the... More
