I stay in hotels all the time for work. I have to say this was a great place. Polite staff, clean and comfortable. I would most definitely book more rooms there.Easy parking close to food and right off the higheay.

Staff was friendly enough, location was OK but that room was just plain gross. Every wall, every surface, even the floor and curtains were visibly dirty. They're remodeling soon so I hope they fire their cleaning crew before they're through. My feet were black after walking around on that carpet after only a few minutes. GROSS

I did a lot of research before deciding to stay at Clarion/Rodeway. I have very specific requirements when staying at a hotel: I am allergic to smoke and mold, and can't sleep with strong cleaning solvent smells either. I also need a comfortable bed in a quiet location in order to fall asleep. The room they put us in (210)...

The hotel room was clean, the lobby was nice, the bed a little more firm than I like but otherwise clean and comfortable, tv was extremely outdated circa early 90s at best, missed the Continental breakfast by 20 minutes so I have no opinions on that... The fan in the bathroom did not work which was not cool both my...

My flight was canceled out of CAE and American Airlines gave me a voucher to stay at this hotel. (Which is now called the Rodehouse). I only stayed 6 hours but that was enough. The comforter on my bed had a big stain on it and when I woke up at 4:30 am I killed a cockroach in my room!!...

We stayed here on a voucher from American Airlines because of a diverted flight. The good? The desk staff was supremely nice and the bed was comfortable. The bad? An a/c unit that blew at a constant 60 decibels and could not be turned down or off. (This did mask the thin walls, but made sleep elusive) We killed a...

Front desk staff was less than friendly. The wifi in our room -- and our friends' rooms -- never worked. The lights over the vanity area were on their way to being burned out and flickered constantly. We had a nonsmoking room, but the toilet and tub had burn marks. Bathroom was partially redone (nice tub) but the rest of...

My family and I stayed here one night driving home from a coastal vacation. The check-in went smoothly and the staff was VERY nice. We were surprised to see the on-site restaurant, and decided because it was late, we would settle in and then eat there. The restaurant staff was really friendly and our food was good. The room seemed...

We stopped here for the night to break up our 16 hour drive to GA to see our son for Christmas. The location was GREAT as it was just off of the highway. The girl at the front desk was NOT very friendly that night but the one the next morning was wonderful! We were a little miffed that we...
