The hotel is very centrally located to Auburn University. We were there to visit our college students and found the hotel more than adequate for a quick stay. The highlight of the stay at Clarion was the bed and pillows were the most comfortable I've found so far in any hotel.

On the plus side, the staff was very friendly, free hot breakfast was quite good, beds were clean. On the downside, the place is in desperate need of an update with old chipped, stained furniture and carpet, most uncomfortable mattresses ever made. Location is ok. Would definitely not pay Gameday rates to stay here; well, or any rates for that...

The Clarion in Auburn is a dog friendly motel and that is why we decided to stay there. We were traveling along I-85 to the Gulf Coast and found the motel using another pet friendly travel site. This motel was indeed dog friendly. However, if you don't need a dog friendly place, don't stay here. The place is in serious...

Sometimes I wish we could rate a hotel based on it's intended purpose instead of putting them all "head to head" on one scale. I was in Auburn for a night game and needed a place to sleep after the game. For that purpose, this place as perfect. Not quite close enough to walk to from the Stadium but just...

Stayed here for one night to help our daughter with Auburn functions. Our room was very clean. The furniture was a little worn, but I am sure the motel has heavy use during football season. I've paid much more for rooms at other motels in worse condition. The location is convenient to the campus and to a great variety of...

Second time in a month I stayed here. Stayed 1 night with family for daughter's move in at Auburn, came back by myself for 2 nights for sorority Bid Day. Front desk staff very nice. Very old hotel with a coat of paint in the rooms to cover many problems. No problems with musty or old smells. Carpets just looked...

On busy weekends hotels are in short supply and prices are higher. This Clarion will suffice. The lobby is a modern facade in front of a traditional motel setup. There are no internal corridors. Three stories tall but elevator only goes to the first two floors. Ice and soda machine first floor. Rooms are older but have been refurbished and...

If you're just looking for a place for crash after a long car drive - say on a roadtrip- this place will do the job. The room itself was clean-ish and the beds were comfortable but we were glad to just spend the night without feeling the desire to unpack anything. Everything was dark: the room, the main lobby and...

The hotel was very clean. The front desk clerk Evan was very helpful and attentive to our needs. It was a great value for the price. The breakfast was also very good and filling. It was great to receive a full breakfast bar with hot food and not just bagels and coffee. I would gladly stay at this hotel on...
