Clarion Inn & Suites
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Dothan

Reviewed 18 August 2013

This hotel is one of those 2 story motorlodge type setups with "stylish" weather beaten aluminum window frames. The morning breakfast was not too appealing with the choices given but the staff is very friendly and try to accomodate you the best they can. The main issue with this Clarion is the age of it. My suggestion to Clarion for this property would be to demolish the current set up and construct a new modern Clarion hotel because the location is perfect and I'm sure business would increase 10 fold!

Room Tip: If you do choose this location then ask for a room in the back because it is a bit quieter.

Some friends and I stayed at this hotel for a crossfit competition in Dothan. We were not at all dissatisfied. I'm not sure why there was a review stating you had to make u-turns because we pulled right out of the hotel parking lot and was able to go across the median for a left turn. It's a 3-star hotel, I didn't expect it to be top of the line. The beds were nice and warm, pretty comfortable as well. The room was clean and the air worked well. I had no complaints of outside noise and for a group of 4, we were able to get connecting rooms which were pretty convenient. Breakfast was also complimentary.

If I had to make complaints they would be that the doors open to the outside. I prefer inside hotels. Another complaint would be that you had to dine in for breakfast, you couldn't have anything to go. And lastly, there are no refridgerators. Other than that, I have none.

It was great for what we needed... a convenient overnight stay.

Traveling on a motorcycle sometimes brings you a nice surprise and this hotel was one of them. The rooms are clean and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The price was the biggest surprise of all. I highly recommend this hotel when in Dothan, AL.

Comfortable, convenient place to stay. Very nice and helpful staff. Wonderful breakfast bar. Near to many restaurants, gas station, grocery stores. Great value. Was easy to find and get to everything nearby. Would recommend to family and friends. Really appreciated the way the staff helped my father as he is diabetic and needed a little extra assistance.

This hotel is very old and need to be updated. I will not ever stay here again! For the money that I spent I could have went to a newer hotel. The older lady in the breakerfast lounge is very rude she got food off of the bar with her bare hands.

We stayed here one night after traveling from the Tampa area. The only thing we did not like about the property is that it is located on a four lane divided highway and it requires going the opposite direction and then making U turns. We found this to be very inconvenient. The room was clean and comfortable and we were able to park the car in front of our room. The breakfast buffet had a varied selection of items and the food was very good. The room price was very reasonable and therefore a very good value.

After traveling all day from Central Florida, we finally stopped in Dothan, AL for the night on our way home to Mississippi. We had never stayed at the Clarion so we decided to give it a try.
We were extremely pleased by the service that we received. Ms. Ciandra at the Front Desk went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable with the room, her attitude was just magnificent and it spoke volumes of the type of staff you have. She really exhibited the word "Hospitality".
I hope that she would one day be apart of your management team or training team!!!! She is a valuable employee and have much to offer.

Room Tip: We particularly like rooms on higher floors; the noise levels are decreased and certainly the A/C un...
