Recent guest reviews

This hotel needs desperate updating. It is worn and dirty overall. The hotel should be as nice as the lobby. On the upside the staff was fantastic. There is a restaurant and laundry which is nice and convenient.

My family reunion was at the Clarion North; reserved this one by mistake. Orbitz was unable to make the switch. Upon checking out, I inadvertently left my pediometer and a pair of earrings in the room and the staff said no one turned those items in. So disappointed.

The family and I had The a great experience at the hotel. The were no problems checking in, and there were great amenities.

We came a wedding/girls trip. We got a double bed. There was no room on one side of the bed you could hardly walk. And bathroom situation was rough. 4 women and a baby to get ready was hard. Sink was so tiny and the only extra mirror was to the side of the sink on a door. Very inconvenient for getting ready fast. I can tell they are trying to update hotel. So maybe in a year or two I would try. But for Maybe 2 ppl great but for what I paid I was really disappointed!! But staff was really nice and helpful.

The chlorine odor was so overwhelming it gave me a headache. My room door was broke so front desk moved me into a king bed instead of double room I had booked. The room was overpriced and I didn't feel safe. It's across the road from a gentlemans club. Front desk told me I could've gotten the room cheaper. Very disappointed.

Our room needed to be remodeled. Mattress was very uncomfortable. Discovered that the exterior door to our wing was able to be accessed without a room key--bad security!!!! Told the front desk. Breakfast food was cold!

This hotel was not great. The sheets did not fit the bed and the staff did not clean the room even when we left the do not disturb sign off the door. The entire lower floor smells like chlorine from the pool. The location is just awful, right next to the loudest and grossest strip club (The Spearmint Rhino). The only reason we stayed here was because we had to visit an ill family member and this was all we could get at late notice. And it's not like this place is super cheap either, we payed $130 a night which is way over priced for the location and the quality of the hotel. My basic recommendation is this: if you have any other choice, pick another place to stay.

Very nice, very quiet, awesome pool & spa, breakfast super good and LOTS of choices. They forgot to do our room the first day, but offered a meal voucher in the hotel restaurant as a compensation, which was very much appreciated.

We stayed as a stop from driving. Worked well. Had everything that we needed for a quick stop.
