I booked 2 hotel rooms with Expedia that were king rooms. We checked in and my daughter went to her room and called me while I was finishing the paperwork and said the rooms were not king but rooms with 1 dbl bed and that they were gross. When I went up to my room the door was open with... More

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting friends. Room was on the 2nd floor with a beautiful lake view. The room hadn't been remodeled yet and showed some signs of age. The door needed a bit of force to completely shut and latch. The furniture and tv were old and the carpet had some stains/wear. Bed was nice and comfortable and... More

The construction was not an issue except there was no pool or gym. but if you are looking for a hotel for a place to stay this is a... More

We had our 50th class reunion there last night and it was fantastic. The food and the service was second to none. It was without a doubt one of the best buffet meals I have ever had at a function. I also spoke to several people who had rooms there and they said they were fine. Do not believe the... More

My girlfriend ordered a coffee in the breakfast room and they brought her a cup with hot red lipstick on in. Also breakfast was so terrible that we couldn't even eat it. hotel beds are so old it feels like they are about to break. rooms are old and air conditioner is very old. Terrible.

I didn't listen to the other reviews and took the leap- I'm quite regretful of that choice! I understand the hotel is under renovations so... In their defense it may be better in 6+ months!! Took it for the price bc it was only for one night, but it's not worth it! Worst part(s): bed!!!! I think the bed is... More

Staying at the Clarion Inn was truly a horrible experience. First off, the Inn was under construction so we were denied access to the elevator, pool and gym. When we got to the top of the stairs with all of our luggage the only thing we could smell was urine. That alone made me question the cleanliness of the facility.... More

We just checked in and we are very exhausted after traveling all day. The construction is unreal. No elevator. The hall smells of pee. The room smells. The springs are coming thru bed. The tv is awful. Bad location. Very unsatisfied for the cost.
