We stayed here while driving a large rental truck cross-country. The good thing I can say about this hotel is that the parking lot was large enough for our truck. As for the hotel interior, the corridors are not air conditioned, so on the hot, humid day we were there, the air was stifling. In the center of the hotel...

Lobby looked great upon arrival but proved to be the "Lipstick on the Pig". Was assigned to a second floor room only to find out the hotel did not have ANY elevators. Lugged my cooler and baggage up to room via the stairs. Room was adequate but certainly nothing to write home about. The complimentary breakfast was bargain basement stuff....

It is not only dirty, but this haunted! believe it or not, I was in the room. 255 and my husband heard noises in the bathroom mirror and wall, went out to look for the hotel's bar, but the atmosphere in the corridors were desolate and very heavy atmosphere. The most gloomy was early in the morning around 3:00 am...

Front lobby looks good. I am handicapped and was never even offered help with baggage. Room smells damp and mildewed, reported this and was told its new air freshener. Stay away. Avoid this dump. Clarion is taking lessons from Motel 6. TV remote is broken. They have some ordered. Black mold on bathroom ceiling and the room refrigerator is not...

Stayed here for a convention. The conference center next door is a fine. The lobby is lovely. After that, the hotel is a dump. Start with only one soft drink machine in the entire hotel. The front desk actually told me "we had to remove them all due to vandalism". No gift shop up front to buy drinks. No full...

Great location and friendly service at a very reasonable rate. My girlfriend and I have stayed here several times, and we plan to return. The rooms are spacious and clean and the complimentary breakfast is very good. The location puts you very close to shopping and great restaurant choices.

My husband and I are choice hotels members and if we have a choice of a Clarion vs Others in group for a reasonable price, we choose Clarion. We were on our way home from a two week trip including a civil war reenactment in Gettysburg, visit with family in Chattanooga TN and Somerset KY and we stayed at Comfort...

I was disappointed from the get go by not receiving much of a greeting. The young lady barely looked up as we stood at the counter. We were advised to drive to the back of the building although our second floor room was closer to the middle of the hotel. We found out that was because the ONLY elevator in...

Upon arriving at the hotel it was obvious that it was an older Clarion, the outside was dated and not attractive. However entering the lobby, it was well maintained and clean, but for their prices you would think they could afford air conditioning in the public areas. The hallways and elevator was like a hot box, and don't even think...
