Nice "Greeting" at front desk! Walked into our room and it looked very nice! Spacious! Clean! Very comfy! Great location to freeway! Super great price for the night from Hotwire! This hotel not only has a nice clean swimming pool but also its own restaurant! Very convenient to a "tired traveler"! Room includes micro wave, mini refrigerator and coffee maker.... More

We checked into two rooms around 8:30 pm. The front desk was apathetic at best. We expected a hotel but found ourselves in a motel-style building. Lightbulbs were missing from lamps (it took an hour and two phone calls to get them); rooms were impersonal and in need of updating. Pillows were lumpy rubbery squares. The TVs didn't work right...

I had such a wonderful stay at the Clarion Inn in Richmond, VA. I am a frequent traveler and am always looking for great places to stay in different cities.

My husband and I were on a motorcycle trip to RVA for historical and brewery tours and stayed here on Friday night 5/1/15. We chose this hotel based on the TA reviews, price, and location.

I was injured after making my reservation. I requested a handicap room upon arrival. We were instructed to walk a very long distance in the rain to our room. I was on crutches. We discovered that there was parking right outside our door, but we were never informed of this. Poor customer service. We cancelled our return stay.

Dear Trish0518: I'm sorry to hear about your injury. We actually placed the handicapped rooms so they are easy to access from the nearby parking lot, so it would be a short distance. I'm sorry our front desk agent did not make you aware of that. I will let our guest services team know. Thank you for staying with us,... More

The bed was clean and comfortable, and EDWARD at the front desk was a delight. One of the guest's dogs started loudly and incessantly barking at 1 a.m. in the morning. Took them over an hour to get it sorted out. They had two wild parties in their convention rooms. Loud and drunk people walking through the hallways and continuing... More

This hotel was awful and horrible. 1.) The bathrooms were so tiny. 2.) The hotel first gave us a room that had to be entered from the outside. Then, we changed to another room and we were questioning why we didn't get that room in the first place. 3.) the room keys don't work!! Whenever they don't, we would get... More
