“Not the worst place I've stayed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stayed here while driving a large rental truck cross-country. The good thing I can say about this hotel is that the parking lot was large enough for our truck. As for the hotel interior, the corridors are not air conditioned, so on the hot, humid day we were there, the air was stifling. In the center of the hotel is what they call the "Atrium." It houses the pool and the breakfast area. It was impossible to eat breakfast in such a hot, humid location, so we skipped the free (and not very-good looking) breakfast and headed down the road to Cracker Barrel. Our room as dingy, but not dirty. The hotel served its purpose--a place to sleep with room to park a truck--but nothing more.

Lobby looked great upon arrival but proved to be the "Lipstick on the Pig". Was assigned to a second floor room only to find out the hotel did not have ANY elevators. Lugged my cooler and baggage up to room via the stairs. Room was adequate but certainly nothing to write home about. The complimentary breakfast was bargain basement stuff. The most disturbing thing was the dirty floors throughout the halls and other tiled areas. They looked as though they hadn't seen a good mopping in quite some time and dirty, rounded corners were the norm. I'll not be staying there again!

It is not only dirty, but this haunted! believe it or not, I was in the room. 255 and my husband heard noises in the bathroom mirror and wall, went out to look for the hotel's bar, but the atmosphere in the corridors were desolate and very heavy atmosphere. The most gloomy was early in the morning around 3:00 am when I saw that the light was turned on, and left it as well, but there was music that only I listened to and didn't let me sleep. When we finally left the hotel in the morning, to my surprise my son tells me that the saw a girl dressed in white against the bathroom.. .mi son is very analytical and if he says that 100% i believe him...so scare! i will never return to that hotel, much less room 255 never I will forget that horrible experience

Room Tip: never pick room 255 unless you want to sleep with a girl ghost!

Front lobby looks good. I am handicapped and was never even offered help with baggage. Room smells damp and mildewed, reported this and was told its new air freshener. Stay away. Avoid this dump. Clarion is taking lessons from Motel 6. TV remote is broken. They have some ordered. Black mold on bathroom ceiling and the room refrigerator is not working also because the ice box is frozen solid. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Knoxville last night, like two different worlds. Never again will i stay at a Clarion or any of their affiliates

Stayed here for a convention. The conference center next door is a fine. The lobby is lovely. After that, the hotel is a dump. Start with only one soft drink machine in the entire hotel. The front desk actually told me "we had to remove them all due to vandalism". No gift shop up front to buy drinks. No full time restaurant available.

One elevator in the very, very far back corner of the hotel. Halls are very hot. The elevator is worse - Dante's Inferno. Bathtub stained and dirty. Shower curtain stained and dirty. Hotel halls stink. Do Not Stay Here!

Great location and friendly service at a very reasonable rate. My girlfriend and I have stayed here several times, and we plan to return. The rooms are spacious and clean and the complimentary breakfast is very good. The location puts you very close to shopping and great restaurant choices.

My husband and I are choice hotels members and if we have a choice of a Clarion vs Others in group for a reasonable price, we choose Clarion. We were on our way home from a two week trip including a civil war reenactment in Gettysburg, visit with family in Chattanooga TN and Somerset KY and we stayed at Comfort Inns along the way. We knew we could not make it all the way to CT so I booked this hotel, it was late so I did not check Trip Advisor, big mistake! We booked a king room, there was a wet dirty wash cloth in the shower, the bed was very soft, the bed ruffle was dragging on the floor, the refrigerator was old, the freezer section was open and filled with ice which was leaking into the refrigerator. They offer you a continental breakfast which is near the indoor pool, it was so hot in there that if you wanted to eat the rubber eggs you couldn't! The juice machine was broken, there was no coffee and no one around. There was garbage overflowing into the parking area. They claim they just completed a $5 million renovation, other than the lobby I do not know what they spent it on! The parking lot has pot holes which was not repaired but covered over. They claim to be right off I-81 but they are not, you have to drive through less desirable sections of Hagerstown to get to it. Do yourself a favor and do not stay here, it is definitely not up to expectations for a Clarion!
