I stayed here at the last minute due to blizzard conditions. Rate was $49 including tax. For the price, it's perfectly fine. The breakfast is the worst breakfast I have seen at a hotel. Ever. "Fruit" was canned fruit cocktail dumped in a plastic bowl. "Waffle station" is a lone waffle iron with instructions and no batter. I talked to...

Our tour made a quick stop due to a blizzard up ahead. We got very quick check in. Our room was clean, not modern but everything that was needed. My roommate noted dirt on door and heater in bathroom. Did not matter to me. Heater was not working. Plenty of towels. Free wifi. Very nice pool area, heated. Very nice...

The staff we encountered were very, very friendly and helpful, we thank them very much for that. The public/shared areas of the property are super nice, well maintained and decorated. The pool and breakfast areas are very, very nice and...

The stay was enjoyable and I can’t thank the management & the staff enough for the great service you extended. We liked he availability of walking to the sports bar without having to go outside. We’re looking forward to a return visit to your location in the future.

Bathroom was more updated than the rest of room so this was a plus in my book.I HATE tubs and tile. None found here Very clean. Front desk was...

The Room needs updating. The bedspread had a hole in it. Room smelled musty but was fairly clean. If you have a meeting be prepared to walk, walk, walk to get from your room to the meeting rooms. No vending machine for snacks. They did have a pleasant staff and the breakfast was very nice.

We had been in the car all day and we were hungry and we saw that the hotel was attached to a sports bar called Barefoot Bernies so we pulled in. The check in was friendly and the room rate very good on a Sunday evening. The halls are a little noisy but the room was clean and the wireless...

I don't usually write reviews but I had to give an update after reading some bad reviews about this place. I found the Clarion to be clean, the rooms were large with nice king size bed, large desk area, and refrigerator. Staff was wonderful- very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was a bit larger than most, with sausage gravy, biscuits,...

The hotel was the worst, there was mold in the rooms, the pool area was terrible. The chlorine levels in the pool was too high that it was hard to breath. In addition the rooms were stuffy, they had to put dehumidifiers in rooms to get the stuffiness out. This was the worst place I have ever stayed at. Don't...
