Deonta, you are one of Clarion's prized employees! They should reward you well! When we checked in, the system was down. We all know what it's like when 4 people are waiting in line and your computer decides to not cooperate. Deonta kept his cool, explained everything, and got everyone checked in with a very professional attitude. Most people would...

Our reservations were transferred from the Holiday Inn as we booked in Hotels.com. So beware. The toilet had been used and not flushed, the ice bucket top had been used for an ash tray and not replaced and there was a brown stain on the blanket. We only had a sheet and blanket, no comforter or spread. The carpet was...

We stayed here twice in 10 days on a trip from Michigan to New Orleans and back. Their breakfast was the best we had during our 10 days trip-great sausage, bisquits & gravy that all tasted home made. Definitely made the price of the room worth it. Staff was very helpful in finding the room we wanted both times, and...
