“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2006

We were there the week after Christmas.The only good thing here was the staff. The rooms were awful. Everthing was broken. The beds were terreible, the carpets ripped, we had adjoining rooms and the doors between them could not be closed. They were watering the grass with swamp water and it smelled like rotten eggs outside and inside the rooms in the morning.
DO NOT stay here.

This place was fantastic from start to finish. When I tried to check in, I was early...the young lady at the front desk (Lindsy) was very helpful in accomodating me, even though the hotel was mostly full. The room was spacious and their internet connection was FAST & secure using some type of adapter that plugged into the outlet in the room. I stayed while they were having a big benefit for the hurricane victims...the speaker said they raised over $180K...that was very impressive. The restaurant was under renovation, but remained open for their free breakfast...also a nice touch. This hotel was definitely worth the money and I'll be staying here again when I get back to the area this winter. I highly recommend it!

I have stayed here 3 times in August, making reservations each time prior to arrival. I am on the road a lot, in hotels all over east coast of Florida, and I really like this Clarion......I can arrive at 1pm and get right into a room....they have refrigerators and microwaves in most rooms, as well as coffee makers and hair dryers....free internet use in a closed in room just off the lobby which is nice......nice pool area with tables to sit and relax....nice landscaping too....

We stayed here for 1 night and all I can say is I cannot believe the condition of this Clarion.
1...The door leading into the room wouldn't close properly you could see outside through the gaps in the door. The locks were in bad shape and I was very nervous here.
If I hadn't traveled 12 hours to get here I would have left.
2 A dead roach on the bathroom floor.
3 The toilet was not working properly.
This hotel is in need of serious work. Someone from this chain of hotels needs to come and take a look. It sets a bad impression for all Clarions
