I don't know how Clarion got their hands on this place. Or maybe the question should be, Why did they get their hands on this place.
The staff was great. They were very helpful and friendly. I give them 5 stars. But I can only give the hotel 2 at best.
The staff did their best with what they have. The hotel is very old and in dire need of a refit. The carpet in the rooms and the halls is very worn. The "wallpaper" is very outdated.
I don't know how long that hotel has actually been there, but I know it has been there for a very long time.
Location is fair. It is right off the interstate. But it is on top of a hill with a driveway that you have one hairpin turn that can be very dangerous if you meet someone else coming down as you are going up.
Then when you get to the parking lot. It doesn't have tons of room. Only one entrance and exit. Up and down the same hill with the same bad curves. I know that is not Clarion's fault. That is the fault of the original hotel owners. But there are many other hotels in the area with much easier access for the quality and price.
