“Older Hotes, Nice Updates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

My famaily stayed here in mid January for 1 night. We were traveling with our dog, so we needed to find a pet friendly hotel. The hotel is an older hotel, but has updated rooms. We were concerned when they put us in one of the " pet " rooms, but the room turned out to be clean. The AAA price we paid was reasonable. If traveling with a pet, this is a good hotel to stay at.

Thank you for staying with us at the Clarion – Murfreesboro.

We pride ourselves on being very “pet friendly.” In fact, all our Managers are pet owners and we think this comes through in how we want to be able to travel with our pets and how we plan for, accommodate, and treat our pet owner guests.

I will be sure to pass on your compliments and remarks.

have stayed at this Hotel for over 4 years. Every time I go check in something has changed . New TVs in rooms new bedding new carpet. They are always doing something to improve the Hotel. They have the BEST staff of any place I stay. always going out of their way to make your stay is great. Cannot say enough about the manager she is just super. The internet works great have found nothing that don't work at this Hotel.By chance if something is wrong tell one of the staff and they will take care of it. The best breakfast bar any where you could go. The lady that handles the breakfast in the morning always has a smile. The same also goes with the people at the front desk. What a way to start off a day!!!!

Room Tip: Have stayed on the inside rooms & on the outside. The rooms on the inside are a little quiter be...

I only spent one night here in December 2011. The staff was nice and the breakfast was good but no better than any HI express. This hotel is an old Holidome and there was no one in the pool area and it looked like there were not many guests.in the hotel. The bed was okay but room was an outside room and was really dated. It was overpriced for a one night stay. Most of the other hotels on the same street are much newer and I believe have better rates. I think I will stay somewhere else next trip to Murfreesboro. I had planned on staying in at the hotel when I arrived but was told the restaurant and bar had closed down so I had to go out and get dinner. All in all an Ok stay.

I have stayed here several times in the last year for work. I will choose this hotel every time over others in the Nashville areas. I stayed in room 129 this time, and a consistently great stay. Incredibly comfortable bed, great water pressure in the shower (aren't those the two things that really matter the most?). A large parking area for us truckers, and a very reasonable rate. They have a great breakfast compared to other Choice properties I've stayed at. The staff is very helpful and seem to care about guests. Kudos to management, you guys do a great job.

Room Tip: I haven't had a bad room yet.

I have to give compliments to the staff and the Mananger of the Hotel for my stay there last week was a great experience. They were kind and pleasent to me, they offered suggestions, if I could not find the right words to describe it. The breakfest offered excellant selections of foods to choose from and the staff was very nice and polite to me. I would recomend any one travelling to that area to stop by and be paampered by the staff and management there

I can't believe the rating that this hotel has on Trip Advisor--it does not deserve it. The building is very run down, and the hotel does not seem safe. When we arrived to check in at 7 pm, there were only about 7 cars in the whole hotel parking lot--it looked deserted. The safety entry doors did not lock. The fire doors did not shut behind us when we took the stairs to our floor. The carpet in the room was very dirty, and the rest of the room was very old and worn--except for the bed which looked comfortable. The hotel is located right next to the interstate highway, so there is concern about noise. We did not stay. The girl at the desk was very nice and allowed us to cancel our reservation. The other hotels on this same street look much, much nicer. We were able to get a nicer room at a different hotel and it was even a few dollars cheaper.

Thank you for making reservations at the Clarion Murfreesboro. I am very sorry to hear your attempted stay with us did not satisfy. The safety of our guests and cleanliness of our facility remain the highest of our priorities. Your frank comments will be used to improve our hotel.

We are proud of many of the reviews given to us through Trip Advisor. Our beds “are” very comfortable. Our guest service scores continue to climb. Our hotel and room amenities provided, alongside our fantastic complimentary offerings and convenient location, represent just a few of the attributes fellow Trip Advisor Members like you feel about us...

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday most of our guests were late arrivals on their way to family and friends. We were not deserted, but with parking available for over 350 vehicles, it could look that way before our guests pull in for the night.

If you find your way through Murfreesboro again, please give us the opportunity to show you how your remarks have helped us improve our product. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Surprised at this one. A diamond in the rough. The building is showing it's age and certainly needs a renovation but the room was large and clean. My room was on the freeway side but noise was negligible. Breakfast in the morning was in the atrium and was basic eggs, sausage, hash browns, etc - but was hot. The shower was weak. I do not understand why hotels neglect this but many do. Again, as with others, they leave the outside doors unlocked - they have the swipe thing for your room key but the door is not locked. Hey, you guys live here all the time - we travelers do not - this is our home away from home and prefer to have security. But location seemed OK and mall is nearby with plenty of fast food and sit down places to choose from nearby. Would definitely recommend.
