We have traditionally stayed at the Clarion for the pool so when our Granddad passed in February we made reservations. When there this passed winter, I had to be moved 4 times before they came up with a satisfactory room that I still would have only given a 3/10. Then we just stayed again while in the area for a...

I decided to take my grandkids away for the Memorial Day holiday weekend and wanted a hotel with an indoor pool. This one offered the best value and so I booked the room. They did allow us an early check-in and a late check-out which I greatly appreciated. With little kids and strollers, the extra time afforded us a little... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for providing some tips for future guests. I apologize for the issue with the temperature of our pool water. As you said, there were a lot of kids using the pool and usually it is necessary for our engineering department to add water to bring it up to the required level.... More

We recently hosted a 50th birthday party here for our daughter with invited guests who travelled from afar and were most pleased with the accommodations, event planning, food and service. From start to end, everyone involved was professional and a pleasure to deal with. Group rate booking went exactly as planned from blocking a group of rooms to check out.... More

I have visited this establishment several times and it keeps changing names. The rooms are big and comfortable. They use the Keurig coffee maker that seems impossible for someone with visual issues to get a decent cup of coffee, because you cannot get to the exact fill line necessary for the machine to start brewing. This is a pet peeve.... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review here. I apologize for the issues you had with our coffee maker. A simple tip I have learned it to fill the coffee cup with water, pour that directly into the Keurig, and use the same cup to catch the coffee dripping from the machine. We have not had any... More
