3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I do need to give credit to the staff and location of this hotel, but that is as good as it gets. The room was on the 1st floor with a large sliding window which didn't lock. Whilst we were trying to figure out how to secure the room we spotted a trail of ants. We spoke to Reception and... More

The hotel is being updated but there were no inconveniences during my stay. I was there for two nights and the service was wonderful. If you are a walker, it isn't to far of a walk to one end of Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms were clean, the accommodations were comfortable, and the service wonderful.

I did try to contact Clarion via email, but could not find an email address on their site, and I did notify staff there of the smell and lighting issues. Worst problem was the room smell. I thought I could deal with it, but I woke up at 1 am with headache and could not stop coughing. I went outside... More

As others have noted -- the hotel is still under renovation. It's clearly a much older hotel and some parts still direly need their upgrades that are in progress (vending area on the first floor was a bit beat up, no working ice machine, etc). The lobby & front office that are visible to guests were a bit of an... More

My husband & I arrive on Friday evening. We were greeted by two friend people at the front desk. The room was clean and cold. You can tell they are still under renovations. The bathroom needs an exhaust since after showering it's all steamed up. Overall, we had a good overnight experience.
