In its prime, this was probably an amazing hotel. An indoor/outdoor pool with a large game room open area and large restaurant overlooking the pool area. Its the old concept Holiday Inn (Holidome) and shows its age in the public areas and the hallways and walk ways. On the other hand, the rooms have good amenities, and are in good... More

We stayed the night of July 22, 2016. It seems there was only one person working on guest services. Upon check in, the first room we were sent to had mold covered curtains that were also shredded. So it was back to the front desk to get another room. The second room had a big scratch across the TV, and... More

Booked this place at 8pm and arrived at 11pm. Was told the room still needed to be cleaned and that I should wait 20 minutes to go to the room. Went to the room 20 minutes later to find room service still cleaning. The room was absolutely trashed. Why hadn't the room been cleaned before we arrived? Finally got into... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June while my daughter visited TTU. A great value for your money. We had an inside room by the pool. Very clean! The breakfast was great with a breakfast bar. The wi-fi was super fast. The kids enjoyed the indoor/outdoor pool and the hot tub. Conveniently located right off the interstate.

We stayed here for one night during our family vacation. Not a bad place at all. Could use a little more updating/paint/minor things. Bed was clean and comfy, bathrooms clean and all functional, pool was nice-clean-great temp-has a slide even, breakfast was free and better then the average. Overall, I would stay again.

I usually stay at one Choice Hotels higher brands but they hiked the prices for this week and I settled for the Clarion. It was noisy (kids running around screaming, doors slamming,etc) and the room next to mine had all the dirty linens rolled up outside the door. Guess housekeeping quit before finishing. The extra $30 for the Quality Inn... More

The room was very lovely and comfortable. My elderly mom and I were 3-4 minutes late for the breakfast and were turned away. The food was still sitting out and we weren't able to eat. I understand rules but our vouchers did not have the cut off time, nor were there any signs. I take responsibility for not knowing the... More

The jacuzzi is used as a little kids pool and the parking lot for tailgate partys. Great for families with kids. Avoid if you don't have any,unless you like getting sqirted with waterguns.The room is ok, but no microwave, even after I was told it has one.
