This place was a Disaster! We were traveling through on the way home from a business trip and decided to stop in Texarkana for the night. I called ahead to the Clarion and checked on avalailability and reserved 2 rooms. When we pulled into the parking lot the outside of the building looked pretty nice and thought we had made a good choice. BOY WAS I WRONG!
The clerk was friendly at check in and gave us our room keys and told us of a side entrance close to our rooms. When we opened the door to the hallway we were immediatley hit with a very STRONG Smoke odor. Our entire team immediatley went.."Ewwww!!" It was horrible smelling. Once in our room we immediatley noticed how small the beds were and how old and outdated everything was. I could hear traffic outside very clearly as if the window were open. I walked over and pulled the curtain back to discover that the entire window casing was broken and the window was sitting there tilted. There was about a 1/2 inch opening at the top that was opened straight to outdoors. There was no way that window was shutting. Upon touching it I realized that the entire window pane was just sitting there propped. If I woould have pushed forward the whole thing would have fallen out. The back of the door was in desperate need of a paint job. There were marks and stains all over it. In the bathroom I shut the door and there was a long black hair stuck to it. When I went to turn on the water at the sink the entire faucet was undone and loose. You could pick up the whole faucet out of the sink. There was a hole in the wall behaind the toilet. I mean this place was literally falling apart and old. Like i said earlier. A DUMP!! I realized I had forgotten to ask if there was a rollaway cot available for our room. I travel a lot and all over the country and the typical price for renting a cot is usually anywhere from $10.00-$12.00. I go to the front desk and ask about one and they said let me check and see if we have one. So I wait there in the lobby for 15 minutes and finally they tell me they have one. I asked how much was it and they said $25.00!! Unbelievable! That was half the price of the room almost for a crappy old broken down cot. Of course I told them to keep it!
In the morning when we opened the door to our room to leave, once again, we were hit with that STINKING SMOKE odor in the hallway. Take my advice. This place may look nice on the outside but it is A COMPLETE BROKEN DOWN, OUTDATED. STINKING NASTY DUMP!! There are several other hotels in the Texarkana area. GO TO ONE OF THEM!
