“Needs some work.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Stayed a few times on business. This was once a Holiday Inn, complete with bar and restaurant, which are still in operation ... cheap drinks, too. Attracts contractor workers. Some of the rooms are nice, with flat screen TV's, frig, and microwaves, but the place is inconsistent. For example, I stayed there in a King room a few days ago. The light in the bathroom didn't work, and there was no pot for the in-room coffemaker, even though there was coffee. I couldn't find an ice machine that worked. The carpets were very dirty. Room rates are cheap, for the area. Breakfast is mediocre. Most of the people I dealt with were pleasant and helpful. Whoever owns the place needs to put a few more bucks into it.

Clean and comfortable for the price. Practical location close to Target and restaurants. Very mediocre breakfast: no pastries, no oatmeal, only 1 type of sugar-free cereal, no yogurt, no toasts, no bagels, no bacon, no sausage, no fruits. What was served? Scambled eggs, sauted potatoes & vegetables, grits & gravy, warm biscuit, coffee, and orange juice. Really not enough variety, but what was served was delicious.

When we pulled up I was nervous because it is a older hotel and the rooms are outside but I was flabbergasted at the room when we went in. We stayed here on our way home and the rooms were nicer than the rooms we paid twice as much for during the week. The room was all newly redecorated and FRESH paint, wallpaper and carpets. The bathroom was very clean tub and shower in one room and 2 sinks just outside the door with plenty of CLEAN counter space! The beds had all new linens and smelled clean and felt great. I am picky and I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms! This hotel was a super surprise I would stay here again. The breakfast was good they actually used real cracked and whipped eggs most hotels buy boil in the bag eggs which are not appealing. Sausage gravy, homemade home fries and toast etc. EXCELLENT value!!!

We stayed at the Clarion overnight while driving to another destination. It was late when we arrived and other hotels were sold out. Front desk staff was very helpful. Room was clean, but nothing fancy. Nice to have a microwave and fridge to bring in some leftover pizza. Beds were comfortable. Shower was hot and powerful. Coffee maker in the room didn't seem to be working but complimentary breakfast was offered. Can't say much about the food - the sausage gravy was good but I wouldn't try the eggs - just looked runny. My kids were disappointed there were no waffles, but they had Cherrios (I think that was the only cereal offered). The people that worked at the restaurant were not friendly at all, but they don't work for the hotel. All in all, it was comfortable and affordable.

My family is pleased we stayed at this hotel. From the time reservations were booked through and beyond checkout we had super service! The room was very clean (awesome in a pet friendly hotel). But the cleaning staff is unbeatable, not only do they work non stop, when a valuable is left behind, it is turn in and returned to the customer! My son left a new Kindle Fire behind, to my surprise it was not stolen but turned, waiting to be claimed! Thank you Clarion and the ethical staff you are lucky to have!

For the money, it wasn't bad and there was nothing "WRONG" with it, but I don't know if it's in the running for a repeat stay. The room needed some maintenance work, e.g. some weather stripping around the door--you could see daylight around it. It was reasonably clean, though not what I'd call spotless.
The pool left something to be desired. The "indoor" pool is indoors in that it is contained in a transparent vinyl enclosure. Maybe semi-transparent would be the better term as the entire area was so filled with condensation that it was difficult to see into, out of, or even across. The water was reasonably temperate, but the "whirlpool" area seemed cooler than than the rest of the pool...but it did have great pressure to the jets. I don't believe the enclosure was well maintained--there was what appeared to be mold in the crevices on the floor. If not mold, it was old dirt.
Overall, it was OK, clean enough to stay in without worry, though I'd not use the pool.

Room Tip: If you're looking for quiet, don't stay near the pool.
