Although this hotel has an excellent and accommodating staff (especially Tanner), it definitely is below standards for a Choice Hotel. I do feel that there is every intention to make this a viable and updated hotel, however at this stage there is still way too much to be done for us to stay again. From the mixed-up reservations, to the...

Was met by "Jubilee" in the beautiful lobby of the Clarion. What a delight she was. The lobby was so festive, I believe there were 4 or 5 Christmas trees, wonderfully decorated by this precious young lady. I own a business, and she is someone I would definately have on my staff! Made us feel welcomed and wanted. Thank you,...

Was pretty excited bc the deal clerk that greater us was indeed amazing thts helped us find the local waterfall and printed directions. That was the only good part of our stay. The fact our room was cheaper than usual should've bn a red flag but I thought it would b ok since choice always has nice properties. As soon...

We stayed here twice, four days apart, on a round trip drive. We had two different experiences. The first stay was great. Check in was easy, clerk was friendly and helpful. We stayed on the first floor, which was easy for unloading luggage and easy access to parking, the front desk, pool, breakfast and bar areas. The beds were comfortable...

First time in thirty years of travel have zero hot water for a shower at 7AM. Other basics like broken and falling over ironing board and will eliminate this from my choices in the future. Front desk can only say "maintenance is working on it".

The word on the street is this place is scarey. I was worried to stay here for a birthday night away from the kids. Lobby was very nice, clean and inviting. Front desk clerk was pleasant. Room was $70 on a Thursday night and included the breakfast. The room was your average room. Nothing special. Things that stood out for...

I was afraid to stay at this hotel after seeing some reviews. But I was surprised by the great service. Nice place, attentive support, good breakfast, great price and location. I stayed for 14 days and was very well attended every time I needed any help.

The lobby of the hotel is very nice, however I can't say the same about the room. Carpet is dirty and dated. The outlets are so worn out, a plug won't stay in. The 2 nights we were there we needed heat, but the unit had no knob and it was either bake or off. I had to keep getting...

This is a large but older facility. They have plenty of rooms with a large main facility with a indoor/outdoor pool & hot tub. The rooms are clean & the service was great but it is an older place that has been renovated several times over the years. They do offer a very good buffet style breakfast which is included...
