ok

The hotel was fine, ordinary but clean. The pool and hot tub were a plus, as were the bar and restaurant on site. However, the hotel advertised a free breakfast, which had also received good reviews on line. There is NO free breakfast. I would not have booked this hotel had I known this. There are several other hotels in that area that were available. For the price paid the hotel should have honored that advertisement.

If you are a non-smoker DON'T stay here

Asked for non-smoking room. Put on a smoking floorthat REEKED of smoke the moment we stepped off the elevator. Not only that but we were put in a smoking room despite our request. I went to front desk and was told no non smoking rooms available.They told us we could have a ozone machine. About 40 minutes later a hotel employee came to our roomwith a spray bottle NOT an ozone machine. Seems they only have one for the entire hotel and it was not available. I feel we paid for something we did not receive!!! Our confirmation from [...]specifically stated non- smoking. I want a full refund. I would not recommend this hotel.

Friendly and clean

Overall we were pleased with the hotel. It has a heated indoor pool and spa that are open until midnight. Our room was nothing spectacular, but was clean and well kept. I would definitely stay there again.

Clarion Hotel

The hotel is good size and probably use to be a very nice hotel 20 years ago. The hotel is a bit dated but still is well worth the money. The beds were comfortable, nice pillows and sheets. The customer service was top notch! The breakfast was decent but nothing special.

"Old but not forgotten"

The hotel is in a good location and in its day probably was outstanding. Otherwise everything was satisfactory. The staff was pleasant and attentive. The breakfast was the highlight of the stay.
