Clarion Inn
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Lake Jackson
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We visited the Lake Jackson area recently with our two grandchildren and spent the day at Surfside Beach. The kids enjoyed the day at the beach. We checked in at the Cherotel just in time for the kids to get about an hour of swim time in the outdoor pool before it closed.
The hotel was clean, and the beds were comfortable. We had a late breakfast at the restaurant across the street which had a nice brunch-type buffet.
Overall, the stay was good. We thought it was a good family-style hotel.
Nothing fancy, but comfortable.

Room Tip: Back entrance closer to the pool.

We stayed one night over tax free weekend. Was disappointed when we were charged more than amount reserved. Front desk person was somewhat arguementative. Rooms were not new, but clean, got extra towels with no problem, not great AC for summer heat, nice pool area. Glad we used the pool early as the pool area and parking lot got a bit sketchy at night. I also had to wonder why a hotel had to put a sign up front that no drugs were allowed.....

Our week long stay at the Cherotel Reception and Conference Center was excellent. The staff was accommodating and kind. The room was cleaned and plenty of towels were placed in the bathroom every day. There was also a night when we came in late and the restaurant was a few minutes from closing. At the request of the cook we stayed and enjoyed a nice family meal. I would stay at the Hotel again and recommend it to family and friends.

Room Tip: I didn't have little ones, so kid's activities were not on my agenda.

The front desk staff was friendly and professional at check in. That is the highlight. Everything else was average or less. This was clearly once a very nice hotel. There is a large center area with a nice fountain, seating groups, a bar, and behind that what was once a restaurant of sorts. I guess there are meeting rooms in that section of the building as well. It feels as though the hotel is waiting for some kind of activity, improvement, something.
The room was reasonably comfortable. The lack of upkeep is a bit obvious in things like the curtains wouldn't close completely (I carry a clip for this), the fridge wouldn't get very cold, the microwave worked, but took 2x as long as it should, the hair dryer blew slightly better than tepid air. Everything worked, but not completely.
Housekeeping did their job, mostly. The room was clean enough. I guess that pretty well describes the whole atmosphere, just enough.
I had to find the breakfast area on my own as the front desk forgot to mention time and place and there is no information sheet or booklet about the hotel in the rooms. I found it Tuesday morning just after 6:30AM. Two staff members were still setting up, and neither of them returned my greeting, nor spoke at all. When I did attend the breakfast the rest of the week, it was the same as everything else seems to be, just enough. Cereal, unmarked carafes of milk, individual cups of fruit, waffles, bagels, coffee, juice. There was no more than one other person eating at any time I went in there.
Even the Wi-Fi is just (barely) enough. I could not get a really good signal in my room, but got enough signal to get on line and function. It would occasionally drop, not often.

On the recommendation of a friend, we checked into this hotel and found a pleasant lobby but two very smelly rooms. At first thinking it was due to the recently shampooed carpet, we left for dinner only to return and find the smell worse than before. The front desk clerk offered two rooms on the second floor, which also had an odor. She was nonchalant about our concerns and expressed no regrets or dismay when we stated that we were checking out and moving to another hotel. She processed our refund quickly, and we moved to a neighboring hotel.
