From the outside, this hotel looks like an older establishment that has seen better days. The neighborhood is also a bit drab, which might tend to cause folks to pass this place by. That would be a mistake, as this property actually delivers surprising value and comfort for an equally surprising price.
While the lobby has been refurbished, the interior corridors of the hotel are quite dated and do show a noticeable amount of wear and tear, with a slightly funky smell. But once in the room, things are dramatically different.
My room was large, clean, and comfortably furnished with 2 large beds, a work desk, TV (not flat screen), fridge, microwave, and in-room coffee maker. The pillow top mattress on the bed was one of the most comfortable that I've ever slept on in any hotel, regardless of price. The bathroom was spotless and the shower delivered an ample stream of hot water. I was on the second floor, and there was a small, walk-out balcony that overlooked the pool. Bottom line is that the room lived up to all of the expected levels of comfort and quality for the Clarion brand.
Check-in and check-in were handled by an efficient and pleasant host.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet, but I did not sample it so cannot comment on its variety or quality.
What surprised me most was the price - which was lower than Motel 6.
As this is written, major construction is occurring on the road in front of the hotel, and access to the hotel is limited to those travelling eastbound on Main Street.
Various discounts are available at the brand website including senior, AAA, and association discounts (if you know the discount code).
