I had the chance to stay at this hotel 2 night due to family being in the hospital. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and a very good breakfast with many choices. Very quiet area for being on such a busy street. Lots of meal choices for lunch and evening. Would stay again if given... More

I stayed here overnight for a business trip. The room was excellent and the service was even better. The staff were kind and helpful, the room was clean, and the breakfast was a great plus. There were no problems at all.

Stayed here for two nights while on business. Had a good rate, especially for the area. Hotel is dated and could use a few upgrades, but the room is clean and furniture was in good shape. If they removed the chair footstool and small table (both were worn) the room would have looked newer. Breakfast was cafeteria style for potatoes,... More

We stayed at the Clarion the night before our cruise. First impression it was beautiful on the outside - check in-in was awesome very pretty. The staff was very kind and friendly. We were assigned to room #1052. It was ok and served the purpose for one night and I actually think it was one of the more updated rooms.... More

We booked this without looking at the Tripadvisor reviews, BIG MISTAKE. The Choicehotels.com web site looks good, and indeed the hotel looks nice when you pull up. You enter the lobby and think you have won the jackpot because the price was so low. Then on your way to the room you go past the pool and you are certain... More
