We were not sure about this place after reading the reviews here but our experience was great. The room was very nice with an upgraded bathroom and a Jacuzzi tub. Everything was spic and span. I don't know if it was just the location of the room but we heard nothing all night even though there was a wedding party...

For what we paid and what we got--not a match. The room was filthy as was the bathroom. The upholstered chair has stains on the seat, arms, and footstool. The vinyl desk chair needed a good scrubbing. The white towels were all dingy and wouldn't dare walk bare foot on bathroom floor or carpet. The front desk was very pleasant...

Just stayed there recently as I had some business to tend to and was visiting friends later in the evening. I also wanted to be close to a party I was to be attending later in the evening but I also wanted to watch the college football championship game. This is the first time I've stayed there and I'm not...

Looking at pics of the hotel and the outside made me believe something totally different. The bathroom was a major issue. The size didn't bother me, but the dirt did. It looked as if someone placed dirt in every corner of the bathroom. The towels were dirty and the hotel had the audacity to brag on their towels. They called...

The front desk service was great. The rate was cheaper at the desk than anywhere online. Nice room overlooking the pool. The shower pressure wasn't that great and the room smelt musty but it was 67$ for a king room. I would stay again. The breakfast buffet looked a bit sketchy so we didn't eat there. Free parking was nice....

My wife and I read many positive reviews of this hotel-- but sadly, our experience does not warrant a positive review. Although the rate was lowest in town, we wish we had spent an extra $10 to stay elsewhere. The best I can say is the room was adequate, not nice, not lovely, not cosy, just adequate. The service and...

Recently stayed at this hotel and the family had a blast. The rooms were nicely sized and the bed was soft. (slept great) Road side a little noisy but we did fine. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The kids loved it. Plenty of choices and food was cooked well. The kids loved the heated pool and the kiddie pool. They...

The grounds and pool area are beautiful and the splash pond is too cute! I have stayed here before but the rooms are in need of improvement. The sitting chair in the room was filthy and the arm of the chair was completely broken. The pull out couch which replaced the previous bunk beds in the room was horrible for...

I give it the maximum rating because this Clarion defied all of my expectations. When travelling on the cheap, you expect to have complaints but suck it up because you're staying for a pittance. When looking for hotels I tend to see a lot of comparisons to other hotels that are several times the price per night of the one...

Hotel was good for average stay. It is not the Four Seasons so don't expect too much. Service was good and it was located close to shops and food places and easy access to the highway. Only problem I had was the food. The scrambled eggs and potatoes were quite cold and greasy. So we made waffles instead. They also...
