All in all the hotel was average. For the price we paid, we certainly should have had better... but since the Clarion has the market on being the closest hotel within walking distance to Thompson Point, it seems like they think they can charge what they want and not put any money into upgrading. Several issues to consider if you... More

This is a nice hotel near the airport with shuttle service. They have a nice breakfast for $9.95. Rooms are clean and quiet. We rented a king and two queens and both rooms were large and updated. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful for restaurant suggestions. I would stay there again.

We stayed here on a night when the hotel was full due to a concert and athletic event. There was not enough desk staff and when a clerk finally came to the front desk to register three separate parties she was unfamiliar with the area and had no maps to give out. She was very polite and apologized for not... More

just wanted to take a moment and acknowledge the excellent service I received from Mary in Pete & Larry's when I had breakfast this past weekend. She seemed to be running the entire place by herself, we were early birds and got there at 6:30 and saw her handle not only what looked like an entire marathon group get some... More

Ambiance. 3 Service. 4 Cleanliness. 4 Location. 3.5 Amenities. 3 Price. a little overpriced!!! It's a good option when you want to stay out of downtown, and pay maybe a little less than the hotels downtown!! But overall, it's not a bad choice!!!

I had to stay here unexpectedly because my father was admitted to the hospital. The hospital gave me some paper work to give to the hotel for a discount and the hotel was amazing about it and the price point was great. They have free shuttle back and forth to the hospital. What a great service. The driver is very... More

This hotel is great. It's not as new as some people might like, but the rooms were clean and it was quiet. Those are the most important. It's not downtown, but just on the outskirts and there's not much around, however, the hotel offers a free shuttle downtown at 4pm and 7pm. I was going downtown around 2 pm and... More
