Kema was very helpful to us with our room reservations which were near each other on the same floor. We had a comfortable room with 2 queen beds and enjoyed the hospitality suite for our family celebration downstairs. The breakfast offered a decent variety and quality for us all to gather in the morning to get our day going. Cracker... More

We stayed here 2 nights and were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. The staff was friendly and efficient; the breakfast choices were plentiful and tasty; and our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I really don't know what more you could ask for in this type of establishment. Well done, HIE Clayton!

We checked in about eight in the evening and the room was great with two beds as we requested. The clerk was very cordial and checked us in promptly. The room has a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. All-in-all I thought the place was excellent and it was right off the interstate.

Very accommodating staff and staying 4 nights we found that they were very consistent on their friendliness. No loss of service with the shift changes, always greeted with a friendly smile. Rooms neat and clean, beds were the best and 4 pillows per queen bed................awesome.

My husband and I stayed at this HIE in December, 2015. This was our 3rd stay in 12 months. Very clean, very friendly and professional staff. Tom at front desk, and Becky serving breakfast were especially helpful. We will be returning for another family celebration in December this year, if not before, and we'll definitely stay here.

This is an attractive hotel situated right behind a Cracker Barrel restaurant. I noticed an outdoor pool, which was covered. The lobby was attractive and the receptionist was friendly. I am local but I was staying here due to my power being out, so I came in late and left rather early for work. The room was large and looked... More

When we arrived late that night, we were pleasantly surprised to find free "good" hot coffee and cookies waiting in the lobby for all guests. Usually free isn't good! The room was very clean and the decor was very inviting and comfortable. Usually we have to request more towels in hotels; Not so here! There were several beautiful white sets... More
