“Nice place to stay!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The hotel is great. The staff were very helpful and nice. There is good pool area where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning. The breakfast was OK. My room was clean, yeah a bit old but you get what you paid for. There is T.G.I Friday right next door where you can grab something to eat, a bit far if you are without a car and you want to explore downtown, but still there is a bus next block that goes there ~30/40min. Good place for its budget and area.

Room Tip: I really liked the one on 1st floor near the pool.

I am sorry but this was not one of our favorite places to stay. The rooms were very dated with old furniture in poor shape and very stained and dirty. Palmetto bugs ran rampant thru our room . As we checked out after our stay we took all of our baggage outside and shook things out before we packed it back into car.
Staff was friendly and did give us back a modest portion of cost of room. Choice motels even gave us additional points which will help us in future if we decide to stay at a choice motel again.
Pool area was nice but very crowded which is to be expected.so we stayed much of our vacation by the pool or away from the room.
The surrounding area is wonderful with plenty of restaurants in area and a great deli (Jasons) across the street.
We just hated the room.

Room Tip: i would suggest a different motel for cleanliness

Checked into the hotel and the service at the desk was great. The rooms are very old and they tried to re do the furniture by adding accents of sliver. (looks cheap). The carpets were dirty and we could not tell how dirty because of the lighting at first. We know that our linen was clean because at 4 pm (check in) they were still wet. We then decided to look into the bathroom and found mildew around the handle bar of the bath tub and the seems of tub, on top of that the tub was dirty. After trying to clean up we decided to let our son out and get into the kiddie pool. The mildew and mold mhhh... no way would I let him in it. The next morning we got up to go have breakfast which was just ok, still needed to go out and eat. Check out time was at 11 am and we had the maid standing outside our door as we were getting ready to leave. It has been a while since I have stayed in a Clarion Hotel and we will never do it again. Was not worth the money we paid.

Room Tip: check the room out before you pay, will save a lot of headaches later

Staff was very courteous; landscaping beautiful; breakfast could be better; however,
hotel dirty in the outside, walls need to be paited, rugs need to be replaced in rooms, covers need to be replaced and washed after each client leaves the hotel, air-conditioning dirty, etc.

Room Tip: Pls check room before checking in

I loved my free breakfast served beside the lobby. The pool is the BIGGEST I have been to at a hotel yet, and everyone greeted me with a smile! the rooms are in good condition, it's a huge property and my kids had such a fun time on that pirate ship kiddy pool! I will be back! Thank you!

Room Tip: get a room close to tgi fridays! the food there is great!
