    Hotel had no record of multiple confirmed rooms from Booked.net Left a group of us in the lobby for over 2 hrs until we paid a second time for the prepaid rooms. Staff & oncall manager offered no assistance in resolving this. Step 1 in Hospitality: do what you can to make the customer happy. There was obviously an error between Booked.net & the hotel. Do not leave it up to the customer to track down which vendor messed this up. Throw the group of us one of our rooms instead of leaving us to clutter up your lobby all sprawled out with luggage & complaining in front of other customers for 2 hrs. Booked.net was non-responsive after multiple calls to resolve this mess. This is not brain surgery people! Minimize the bad situation, don't make it worse.

    Good location. Staff very nice. For the most part the hotel was clean. Free continental breakfast was nice. All in all we enjoyed our stay.

    The continental breakfast ends too early during week. The microwave in our room was on the desk. Gave a cheap feel to the room. It should have its own area with the refrigerator. The parking lot needs a little fixing up and the pool area could use a little TLC. Maybe some nicer landscaping.

    It was easy to see

    The staff was short, gave us no directions to our room. It was hard to get to. There were no extra pillows, the blinds in our room did not close, the air conditioning was broken..... Overall I was not happy and would stay at a clarion again, nor would I recommend it.

    Very good

    The employees helped me whenever I needed help. They were very kind

    The room was dirty when we went in and the fridge must of been broken because it was very loud and kept me awake all night

    I liked the comfort of the bed

    Upon arrival I asked for a mini refrigerator was told I would get it and then it was never delivered. The air conditioner was loud and the walls are paper thin / heard the couple next door - ALL Night and morning

    Superb

    Best continental breakfast I have had at ANY hotel in a lonnnnnggggg time! There was plenty of fruit options, French Toast Sticks and Waffles. And the hotel was in walking distance to a nearby shopping center.

    It did have an I door swimming pool and friendly employees.

    The beds and pillows where not great to sleep on. When I undercover the mattress it had black spots on it in multiple locations. I even found a dead bug in the mattress. The shower curtains are not that wide so when the water is on it wets the floor making the floor unsafe for anyone. We had to lay down big towels to get all the water. You think easy fix move the shower head but, it was leaking on the floor no matter what I did. Breakfast is not great. If you eat anything but, super processed food then go for it. But put this way the bacon did not taste like bacon and looked like thin fryed brown rubber. That milk was spoiled yummy stuff. And the phone don't work so when you have to go to front desk for help. The hotel doesn't have elevators which was fine for our family but, if you can't get stairs head up. Stair ways where ice machine is located stinks. They do have a very small indoor that wasn't stocked with towels for quest use but, it is open late which is nice.

    Good

    The room itself was adequate. Overall we were satisfied with our stay.

    Continental breakfast some items we're cold. Also ran out of plastic utensils. Could use a restaurant, even if it was open for specific hours only. It was also easy to drive by. As we went through the mall parking lot to find an alternate entrance.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is quiet and close to a lot of restaurants and attractions....

    With a little effort, this hotel could be great. The lobby is beautiful..if you go out the back door to the parking area...not so much ! The pavement is cracked and overgrown..it's littered with cigarette butts...No elevator for us senior citizens is a pain in the patootie.....It's not so bad if you're going out for the day, but coming back..tired and hot and having to pull ourselves up two flights of stairs wasn't much fun.....
