“Great holiday stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We stayed over Christmas and New Years and the hotel was beautifully decorated. We never had any problems. We stayed in a Jacuzzi suite and it was a very nice room. The breakfast was good with many options. As far as location it was close to what we needed it to be. Really enjoyed our stay. The manager and the gentleman working the front desk when we checked in provided amazing customer service.

First time there and was very happy, checked in late with my family and was warmly greeted by Herman at the front desk. The night manager Bill went above and beyond our expectations, he helped us with our luggage and told us all the hotel had to offer he also told us how great the food was in the restaurant. We decided to try the restaurant and was amazed at the quality and presentation the server was also top notch. Room was clean and bed was comfortable but didn't have time for breakfast. We will recommend you to our friends

The hotel had some age showing, but it was clean and everything we used was on good working condition.

They had a nice bar that had alot of people dancing on a Saturday Night.

They had a sign to keep people in swim suits, pagamas, etc out of the lobby. I liked this it made the lobby presentable.

Room Tip: The pool was closed when we were there, but if you are a pool person I would get a ground level room...

We stayed there for a wedding and let me tell you the food was wonderful.Most wedding the cocktail hour has the best food. We were so full by the time the dinner got there.But we had to eat it anyway.
The rooms were all very clean and comfy.

We have begun to stay here regularly while visiting family in the area now that the Holiday Inn is now a generic hotel and the clientele has changed noticeably. The hotel itself had always been a nice comfortable place to stay the service and quality of the staff have improved significantly in recent visits.

The Good:

Clean, pleasant public areas including the lobby and bar/restaurants.
Nice comfortable rooms
Good service
Plentiful and well prepared breakfast

The opportunities for improvement:

Nothing of significance to mention

Overall a historically "okay" place that has moved very good with better service.

We held my daughter's wedding at the Clarion and it was everything we hoped it would be. We held the ceremony & reception there and we have nothing but great things to say about the hotel & staff. The food was great and we had a wonderful time.

My husband and I checked in and were greeted by a very warm, friendly front desk. Herman, at the front desk was very professional and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. The breakfast buffet was a full, hot buffet at an extremely reasonable price. I most definitely would stay there again and have been raving about the hotel to all I have spoken with since I stayed there.
