I stayed in this hotel for business from 2/25-3/1 in a King bed, Business Room, Non Smoking, with refrigerator, "Newer Room" category, which I requested. Upon arrival and during my stay, the front desk staff was very professional, attentive, and offered great customer service. My room was on the second floor in the rear of the hotel with a view of the back side of Lowe's, which was fine, since I was staying for business. The location of this hotel is great, since it is located just off of I-195 and there are plenty of places to eat and/or shop located just down the road.
There are a few different entrances to gain access to the room corridors which require a room key to enter, which was great for security and convenient from the parking lot vs. walking through the hotel to get to my room.The hotel carpets in the hallways are old and smell like a Church while walking to my room. There are no elevators and the steps to reach the second floor have new tiled floors which added a nice touch.
The old carpets continued into my "newer room" from the hallway. The door had an additional dead bolt and an old school chain for security. The king sized bed was nice and comfy with 5 pillows to choose from along with a new modern feel head board, furniture and lamps, and funky cool wallpaper with a 32 inch flat screen TV. The microwave and refrigerator were also hidden away in the entertainment center/dresser underneath the flat screen TV. The bathroom was not updated at all except it had a cool curved shower curtain. The toilet was the smallest one I have ever seen and the bath tub had mold all the way around the tub that had been caulked over. There were pieces of old caulk laying in the corners along with long black strands of hair.
The daily housekeeping service was very poor. Every day the housekeeping service came, they never dusted, vacuumed, or cleaned the room or my bathroom. The bathtub still had the same hairs, fixture still had water spots, shampoo bottles still had rings underneath, and my toilet and tub floor were still dirty. The shower head was disgusting and I was scared to touch it. There were pennies and lint balls on the carpet throughout the room and they never moved the whole week which a vacuum would have picked them up. However, the bed was made and I had new towels each day, that was it. The heater was broken and stayed on, it was sort of like staying at a spa and I was locked in a sauna all night. I shut the heater off and opened the window while I slept so the fact that I could open the window was nice. I actually put the do not disturb sign out on my last day and made my own bed, since the housekeeping service was so bad. I was going to complain and ask for a new room but with being there for work, I just needed somewhere adequate to eat and sleep at the end of the night which this hotel provided. However, management really needs to follow up with their housekeeping staff and maybe retrain them on proper cleaning of guest rooms.
The best part of my stay at the Clarion Inn, Seekonk was the adjoining restaurant DiParma's. They offer room service which was very convenient especially after a long day of work and the food was phenomenal.
In conclusion, I would have preferred a newer modern room like the hotel advertised and thought I was getting and an updated hotel. If it wasn't for the great restaurant and for the hotel advertising that it had so called "remodeled" rooms, I would have stayed somewhere else.
