This place is a dump. Avoid at all cost. There is no wifi. It works for three minutes and drops. Useless. Room had dead bugs in one end and not sure how many times we had to get new 'key' cards. Rooms smell musty too. Will never come back and probably never stay at another Clairon due to this dump.

We stayed two nights - one southbound and one northbound off I-75. Amber at the front desk is simply lovely. Main likes: comfortable clean rooms, great value. Main dislikes: a little 'tired', limited breakfast options. Nearby dinner options include Full-Service BBQ (take-away)

Overall the hotel wasn't too bad. Some attention to detail is definitely in order. First off the floor in the elevator needs to be redone due to some warping/water damage it would appear. Secondly The carpet down the hallways leading to the rooms is a bit dirty and parts of which need repaired or replaced. The overall appearance was pretty...

The hotel was very easy to find and check-in was a smooth process. The front staff, Amanda (I think that was her name), was extremely friendly and her bubbly personality was a wonderful experience after a long day of travel. Unfortunately, our room smelled very musty when we walked and the fan for the shower was noisy. The beds were...

We have stayed at this hotel for years going to and from Florida but it has steadily gone downhill. The first room backed onto I-75 ,had a balcony door that did not close properly and had no lock - room 220. We declined to stay in that room. Our next room was at the front of the hotel away from...

When I booked this hotel, I read many reviews and decided to go ahead and book because the hotel had received good reviews. I also received a coorporate discount. When my husband and I checked in and got to our room, we were highly disappointed. First of all the room was so small, the smallest king size room I've ever...

For a one night stay, traveling from Michigan to Tampa, Clarion room was adequate. Bathroom clean, room spacious. Ask for a room with refrigerator / microwave if you want one. Breakfast is free,so don't expect gourmet ; at free ham too salty, waffles ok, but there is fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal options.

Made a phone reservation with Orbitz for the Merchant Center hotel in Knoxville. Asked specifically if there was a pet fee. The Orbitz rep checked and said pets were free and were allowed if they were under 20 lbs. When we checked in at 6PM I mentioned our dog and was told that they charged an extra $20 fee for...

I was in Knoxville to make a condolence visit and spent two nights at this location. It is an older property but generally has been maintained. Friendly staff, good location and easy on the wallet. I really enjoyed the shower.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. Our room was near the freeway, and I was awaken several times to the noise. They offered a variety of fresh fruit for breakfast. I got a strawberry waffle with bacon which was good.
