The hotel was nice and clean inside and outside. My room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The pool was off limits because of work being...

The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The clothes rack fell and maintenance was there in 5 min to fix the rack. The staff was very helpful from check in to checkout. Candi the housekeeper made sure we had clean towels and kept our room free from trash. I will stay again

The hotel needs a bit of a remodel but it was fine for the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with the key not working and they fixed it immediatley. The location is very good as well.

OK, this hotel has seen better days. In fact, I actually worked there as a high school student when it was first built. When it was built, it was THE showcase of Auburn. But many years and owners later, the Clarion is a bit tired... However, I would definitely recommend this hotel because of the excellent staff. Every single person...

There's several lower cost hotels on the way in to the campus. I sometimes stay here and always expect that the hotel will be just a little better than it is, but it's not. It's just OK for their price range, think a cut below a Hampton Inn and a Holiday Inn Express.

I reserved the ballroom with a deposit and was later told I couldn't rent the ballroom because of another event taken place on the same day. And I was told they would refund my deposit so far I have not received my refund. This is not very professional behavior.

OK so let me preface this by saying I would not have booked this hotel except there were NO other rooms available for the night I needed due to graduation & a state swim meet happening. Having said that, this hotel has plusses & minuses. Walking into this room I was a little scared. The first thing I did was...

This Clarion is deceiving. They call it "Inn & Suites" but I have been in better hotels. This is a Motel. The rooms look alright on the inside with up to date painting but whoever they hired to paint the rooms did not pay attention to detail. Smear of paint in corners. This place use to be a Best Western...
