The hotel is just off the freeway and within easy reach of Elvis museum and Automobile museum.

Breakfast is good.. Fresh waffles on the menu.

The rooms are spacious and clean.

The pool across from the car park is a greAt way to unwind following a days driving.

Right off the highway, clean with a good breakfast. I stayed here on the way to a vacation spot with my family, it is perfect place to stay the night for the tired family or business person stuck on the road.

Senior rate only $79.00 a night. Stayed in Elvis room, what fun. Large sunken tub with 2 water faucets, very roomy, lots of Elvis pictures. Complementary water in room, 2 free drinks per guest at bar & a great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Overall, nicest Clarion inn we have ever been to.

Room Tip: Ask for Elvis room.

Mr. Douglas C,

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. I was very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our Elvis Suite. As part of the Clarion brand we have a full hot American breakfast every morning and open our lounge each evening for our guest. We are glad that you had a chance to enjoy both and we hope you visit us again next time you are in Tupelo so you can enjoy our hotel and lounge again.

I stayed at this location for one night after visiting all the Elvis attractions. I chose it because of its location convenient to the highway entrance. I had a large room with two comfortable double beds and plenty of pillows. The furniture was modern and attractive and the room had a mini fridge, microwave, flat screen TV, and a large closet with double doors inside of which were an iron and ironing board. Two complimentary bottles of water were in the fridge. There is plenty of vanity space in the bathroom. The outside security door, which is supposed to be opened with the room card key, did not lock. The hotel provides comlimentary wine before dinner as well as a good breakfast. There is a bar adjacent to the breakfast room.

Room Tip: This hotel is located behind several other buildings, so you have to drive around a couple parking l...

We stayed here for a night as a stopover on a long road trip. The room was very large with a huge bathroom and separate vanity area. The entire hotel was immaculate. The front desk staff and the woman in the breakfast area were all very helpful and friendly. The only negative about the entire experience would be the hall carpets were worn - clean but worn. That was not a problem for us and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

The Clarion is in one building of what used to be a large three-building motel and conference center. The building nearest the road is now vacant. The middle building houses a Rodeway Inn and conference center. The back building houses the Clarion. Our room was very large and well equipped with a desk and chair, dresser unit, TV, microwave, refrigerator, and easy chair with footstool. The bed was a high four poster. The bathroom was quite large with a tub/shower. There was a separate sink area across from a large closet. Our room was very quiet, even though it was situated directly above the entrance and across a parking lot from the Rodeway, which did not have an interior hallway. The bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly. There is an early evening happy hour with two free drinks. What kept this from being a five-star visit was the breakfast. The eggs were lukewarm; the sausage was at room temperature. Even the water for tea was only warm. It was quite a disappointing ending to an otherwise good stay.

Thank you for choosing our Clarion Inn during you recent visit to Tupelo. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your spacious guest room and double vanity bathroom. I would like to to take this oppurtunity to to apologize for your disappointing breakfast. We had a problem with the element on the urn for the water causing it not to be hot. Since your visit the urn has been fixed and I am glad to inform you that the issue has been resolved. As for your problem with the other breakfast items your comments have been shared with our breakfast staff to ensure these types of situations are prevented in the future.

Once again thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Tupelo. We hope to have another oppurtunity to provide you with excellent accomodations soon.
