Much of the interior is restored parts of old buildings that were being torn down but were saved and used in the interior of this building. Well worth the stop and stay. Rooms were Choice hotels typical clean and comfortable....

1 night stay for an event held on property. Front desk staff very helpful and friendly. Convenient to plenty of shopping and eating. A very nice venue for events needing lot of rooms and space for gatherings.

This tired, run down hotel needs some major help. It was probably fine in the 1980's. Quirky place, needs maintenance badly. Hotel was selected for the indoor pool. Got to use it briefly but was closed on a Saturday for an event. Would have been nice if we had been notified ahead of time. Cigarette butts all around the property,...

The room was fine. The hotel, well that's another story. One elevator doesn't work. (There's only two). It's taped up like the elevator on a famous tv show... The hotel is under construction. They closed the pool to have a conference and presentation in the pool area!! That also included eating there. The restaurant at the hotel..ugh. We went at...

Old and very large place badly in need of a remodel. Many of the rooms open directly into the parking lot, so it's noisy unless you keep the fan on. The only positive is that beds and linens are relatively new.

We live in Columbus, IN and occasionally we spend the night at a local hotel and the Clarion was our choice this time. They have a large in-door pool and hot tub plus a mini putt putt and ping pong table. The decor has remained the same over the years and needs to be refreshed. Our room was clean and...

The Clarion is quirky and has great potential, but it is in need of some love and attention. Good stuff - facilities include pool, hot tub, pool tables, table tennis tables and a video game room. Great for families to chill out. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Be aware that 1. some of the rooms open directly onto the car...

This place used to be a Holiday Inn. Then, it was well kept, maintained, and clean. Now, it's dated, run down, and quasi clean. Holiday Inn used to have an amazing breakfast buffet. As Clarion, the breakfast buffet is NOT GOOD at all. More like you would expect from a lower grade motel. The rooms are acceptable but extremely dated....

Disappointed in this Clarion. It is in need of a renovation for the guest rooms and the public areas. 1 out of the 2 elevators was out of order and the one that did function the numbers didn't light up so you would have to check what floor you were on when the door opened. I would not refer anyone...
