“Great renovation! ”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

This is a newly renovated establishment. Very nice and quiet sunday - Thursday. Fri and Sat they do have a DJ at the AMAZING pool area with great drink specials. ($ 10 all you can drink) rooms are what you would expect from Clarion. Nice and clean! Not "tempur-pedic" comfortable but still able to sleep at night! Beef o Bradys right in the hotel that's huge with lots of TVs, great food specials, & drink specials. Service is helpful and friendly and bar staff is great! Pool is on the smaller end so get there early on the wkend to grab a chair!

I've enjoyed my stay here at clarion. It is nice clean and comfortable. Absolutely beautiful at night with all the color changing lights and waterfalls, glitter in walls, crystal chandeliers...very convenient beef o Brady's and car rental in same building. And oh the breakfast, not your average "continental breakfast" ... This is actually a breakfast worth waking up for!!!!

Room Tip: Pool side is very beautiful.

The place was nice, clean and the room was comfortable. It was previously a Best Western. With the $5 million renovation, I could not understand why the Internet was so terrible, slow, unstable and you could hardly get on to the network. Given that we were placed far away from the lobby but still I do not see how any guest should have not enjoyed the free Internet Clarion has advertised. The breakfast was served in a dimly lit place Beef O' Brady's.

Great hotel. Has a beef o Bradys built into it. Fantastic pool. Not a great neighborhood would not recommend females staying alone. Though police patrol the parking lot frequently. Friendly staff, room was clean. Beds were a little firm than my liking but not much of an issue. Can tell it was recently renovated and not cheaply either. Good scenery with the waterfalls and night lights. Basic TV channels as other hotels. awesome full breakfast inside beef o Bradys that is free. Good wifi too. Would stay again. Note. I stayed for one night only and on a week day. I hear weekends can get wild.

The service here was tremendous and people were great. The rooms are a little small but very clean and in good shape. Not in the center of much but a lot near by and close to major roads. Pool area is very nice for couples and families.

According to the staff person with whom I spoke, the hotel has just undergone a $5 million renovation - and it shows. The theme is "ultra model chic" and from the lobby to the guest rooms, everything has been redone in a highly modern, yet stylish and comfortable motif. The lobby is large and spacious, and my guest room was spotless, nicely furnished, and comfortable. They have done an excellent job with the upgrades, and for the price, the level of luxury and comfort is hard to beat.

But there is one caveat... and as long as you are aware of it, your stay should be just fine.

... and that is that this place can be NOISY, which means that the location of one's guest room is critical if one is to avoid the noise level. The reason for the noise is twofold - adjacent to the lobby, there is a large, open-air bar, with loud noise and music that carries quite a great distance. The hotel clearly is trying to become a magnet for evening party people, and it seems to be succeeding at that. When I arrived - midweek, in the mid-evening, there was loud music blaring that would wake up the dead if it could, and the crowds in the bar were quite ample. But that's not all. Behind the hotel, the buildings form a sort of a "U" around the pool area, and there is a large outdoor open-air bar there as well, and even though it was closed midweek, there were still loudspeakers back there blaring out the music to an empty patio. I understand that the pool-area bar is open on weekends, but even midweek, with the music blaring, there was a lot of noise. I have to assume that at least some of this noise carries into the rooms that directly surround this area, and if it were me, I would try to avoid those rooms at all costs.

I was aware of the possible noise when I booked my room and had put in a request for a room in a quiet area. That was done - I was given a room on the other side of the building, facing into the parking lot, and even with all of the noise coming from the speakers by the pool and the open-air bar in the front, my room was very quiet. I was able to enjoy a good night's sleep and the level of peace and quiet I typically expect from a hotel, so overall, I was quite pleased with my stay.

I get to this area fairly frequently and have stayed at a number of hotels in the immediate area, and, dollar for dollar, this one delivers the best value, all things considered. As long as I can get a quiet room, I will be back.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, be sure to request a room in a quiet area. If you book thru the hote...
