“Good and bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

I recently stayed at the Clarion Inn for one night while in the area for a business trip. Overall, I thought the hotel was comfortable and the room was tastefully decorated -- the linens were plush, there were no stains on the furniture, and the bathroom was small but adequate. However, there was a ton of dust on the ceiling near the air conditioner and it was obvious that it had never been cleaned. The carpets were also dirty and my socks were black from just walking around the room. Plus, the walls were thin, I hated the location, and my GPS wouldn't even pick up the hotel's address.

All that said, I would honestly probably stay here again if I needed somewhere affordable to stay for one night. But if I was going to be in town for a while, I'd find somewhere else.

This hotel had only one redeeming feature, very close to the I-79 highway. The room was dark, the hallway had a musty smell. The air conditioner had obviously leaked at sometime as during the night when I went to adjust it, I stepped in a sopping carpet directly in front of it. The rooms easily transmitted noise through the walls and floors.The facility met a very basic standard and was not what I had expected of a Clarion.

This a below average place for quality of the rooms. The restaurant has some good, but not so cheap, food. The people at the front desk were very helpful. The place has recently changed hands and will need some TLC improvements.

I have stayed in Hotels/motels all over the place and the Clarion is the best ever. The people are so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and neat. The services I needed was always there and ready. This was just a great 4 day and 3 night stay. I can't wait to do it again.
