The staff was great specially the front desk person by the name of Adeline. She made it great fun. The room was clean and very nice inside.clarion inn & suites . I enjoyed the INN and it was great fun to stay.

I booked Room on phone to the property as my reservation would not go thru Choice iPhone app. Person at property took the reservation without much ado as I mentioned my cell phone. All information was there and she booked the room on few seconds. Upon arrival being Diamond member they upgraded my room ! Room was well finished and in great shape. See photos. Also had in pool area had fireplace-type flames!! Amazing warm feeling on October 28 th. Breakfast open until 11am , another unheard feature. Only thing needs upgrade is hdtv which is on fixed wall mount which could be an adjustable wall mount fixture so that guest could move it as desired facing lounge chair..

The room was too loud. I could hear sounds from other rooms and doors opening and closing. The air conditioner and bathroom fan were very loud and slightly off so they were vibrating. The plumbing was also very loud and woke me up when the guests upstairs used it. I left early and have been trying to get a refund for the unused days, but the management has been very difficult and doesn't really seem to care at all about their guests.

This place really surprise me seeing as it’s a motel.the rooms were really nice and the beds were super comfortable and the decor was nice as well and the room comes with a fridge and microwave which is helpful.the pool and hot tub were nice the pool was freezing cold so I didn’t use it but the hot tub was great.the location is nice and there are lots of options for food.also there is a little grill in the lobby to choose items from as well as a freezer for ice cream and a fridge for the mornings you get a breakfast bagel sandwich and there is juice and coffee as well as yogurt and muffins.all in all this was a nice hotel and I would absolutely stay here again oh and they have a nice fire pit with chairs and tables around it which makes it nice for sitting and relaxing in the evening

Convenient location and nice car parking setup. Reception was very smooth and courteous. Hotel setup, room locations, and rooms were very nice. One of the best in the Clarion family I have stayed at and with a very reasonable price. Very nice pool and Jacuzzi.

Priceline customers get slapped in the face at this hotel. PL customers do not get a "coupon" for hot breakfast. They have to pay $7 for a breakfast sandwich. BAD: Our free breakfast consist of coffee, a small muffin and fruits. (See photos.) Our view consists of the parking lot. When the motorcycles rolled in last night, we heard every loud revving of their engine. GOOD: The room was clean and well appointed.

Hotel staff, especially Sabrina at front desk, professional and courteous. Rooms were kept in fine order, outside pool area serene and relaxing. Crew required a 4 week stay, all reservations were complete and rooms ready open arrival.

My husband and I stayed here the night before flying home to the East Coast. We dropped our rental car at the airport and called for shuttle service to the hotel and a driver was there very quickly. The hotel was comfortable, clean, and quiet. We were given a voucher for breakfast the next morning which included a breakfast sandwich (egg, sausage, cheese) or bagel and cream cheese plus a muffin and drink. No breakfast buffet, which I would have preferred, but this was ok. Shuttle to airport was on prompt and staff was friendly.

Very easy to find this hotel. Careful with low cars, the incline/hill can damage your front if you are not too careful. We arrived on a Friday evening around 4pm. My boyfriend and I were lucky to not find anyone anyone, front desk is visible through front entrance. We were given a warm welcome by Sabrina and Sandra during our check in. They even upgraded our room for us! (The rooms on the outside may give false impressions, but the room itself was fully newly renovated to a more modern look). We walked out feeling very happy and agreed that this was one of the best check in experiences I've gotten so far. Thank you for accepting our quirky relationship and laughing with us at check in; it definitely made our stay (and anniversary) a memorable one!

Reserved this thru PL. We where on return route to home in NJ with friends. Needed a quick lay over room. PL posted this way below its going rate. Which we of course took. Expecting to be a "Business trick" we where expecting to hear the "fine prints" upon our arrival. First Impressions: I was driving my truck and parking deck did not have the clearance for my truck. I spoke with Parking attendant that was extremely helpful. He said < no worries and pointed out a location for me. I parked met the rest of the crew. Went in and were greeted courteous and even got assigned all rooms in the same floor. In short we had $400.00/nit for less than $100/nit. My guess that it was a construction sale. It was however the highlight of the trip. Everyone was very happy
