The hotel itself is very nice. Everything I would expect even in a Hampton Inn (except for the breakfast), but about $50 per night less expensive. Very clean, high quality decor, excellent bed and bedding, nice flatscreen and free wify. There is a Mexican restaurant connected to the hotel, whose food was mediocre when I stayed. The location of the... More

My stay was for a night out of drinking and clubbing with friends, and not having to drive more than 30 miles home. Once I was in my room everything was fine. Room was clean , very basic, TV didn't work . ( they fixed that, someone took the HDMI cable). Outside did not feel safe. Bad smells everywhere .... More

Spent 2 nights here & they were the longest nights ever. From the moment we got to check in I wanted to leave, but as we prepaid we had to stay. Most unhelpful , rude, couldn't care less attitude from the man who checked us in. Didn't tell us the way to our room had to find it ourselves. When... More

I can barely begin to explain how dissatisfied we were with our stay at the Clarion (VA418). We had qualms about the overall appearance of the site - poor job of covering years of grime, from the lobby to the room; the elevator didn’t work; the outside stairwell smelled like urine, despite obvious removal of the carpet; mold in the...

It was the weekend of a NASCAR race, so I paid a premium for the room - which had no shampoo or bath towels. If there was another hotel close to my daughter's house, I would definitely use it instead of this one.

Gym is terrible. No food within walking distance or convenience store. Motel sits in residential area. No free breakfast. Room surprising that is nice. Question if car will be broken into overnight. I would not stay here again.

I stayed here while there was some sort of Jimmy Buffet fan club gathering was staying for the weekend. It was very noisy and it didn't seem like the hotel took any concern for any of the other guests. The pool area was taken over by this group and it didn't really allow for any other guests to use it.... More

While visiting with a large group, our friend's hotel room was given access to by the staff to someone else. He arrived back to find his room ransacked, his belongings had all been strewn across the room, his food had been eaten and there was drug paraphernalia and residue on the bed. As bad as all that was, the hotel... More

Room was decent but the pool is not what you might expect it was dirty and small. The room smelled unpleasant when you first enter. But overall it was an ok stay. The front desk personnel was friendly and pleasant. You get what you pay for and for the price it was satisfactory.....
