“Will never stay again”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

The smell was awful in the hall way the carpet was dirty. Their were maggots and roaches, the trash wasn't empted out and smelled awful and the pool had bugs in it. The women that was in the breakfast room didn't have the right attitude for that, she acted like she really wasn't happy with certain people I didn't even return the next day for breakfast cause of her. MY OPINION FOR ANYONE IS TO NOT STAY THERE ITS NOT WORTH IT

Positives- Staff were nice and helpful
Room was clean.

Negatives- we had a room in the back building. Right near the exit door. Everytime someone came in or out it sounded like someone knocking on our door. The train at 12:30 am and early am kind of sucked. Beds were really small but comfortable. Went to breakfast at 8:30 and there was barely any food left.

Overall- not bad for a one night stay but probably won't stay here again.

Every time we stay here after going to Wild Adventures. It is older BUT clean, spacious, the kids love the pool, the shuffle board, the breakfast is the best I have ever had. The lady that takes care of it is on top of it...... she keeps it up to par every minute. I was so impressed and would recommend this place any time.The Austin Steak house next door is the best food ever.

Room Tip: There is no elevators but they always have me a downstairs room and they always let my little yorkie...

Hotel was just ok. Biggest complaint was that our room was in the back section and there were a few late night trains that went past and woke me up in the middle of the night. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Needs updating. breakfast was just ok but the room was small and there were few seats.

This hotel is nice if traveling with pets. I believe the hotel is older, but the staff seems to keep it fairly clean. Since we were traveling with a small dog, they reserved us a room toward the back of the development. Behind this area was a wooded area. When my husband and I returned from grabbing a quick bite for dinner we heard yelling in the hallway. A man was alerting a fellow traveler that there was a snake trying to crawl into his room! Needless, to say we didn't get much sleep that night even though we had put towels around the door!

Room Tip: Get a room closer to the front if possible...

Probably a great place for conventions and reunions, this Clarion Inn is old and a little moldy. It felt clean but very worn and is not up to Clarion standards. Having said that, the price is good. It "Feels" musty.

Room Tip: Stay away from 600 building ground floor.

I was thoroughly disappointed in my hotel room. The rug needed a good cleaning, the upholstered chair was so worn and soiled that I didn't sit in it and the bathroom smelled of urine!
I mentioned the fact that the bathroom was in need of a good disinfection when I checked out and received an apology from the desk staff. Considering I paid over $85 dollars for the room, it was a very disappointing experience. If I hadn't just driven almost 500 miles, I would have requested another room. (The room wa pre-paid so I could'nt afford to check out.) However, I had already unpacked when I realized the condition of the room and was too tired to make a change. The directions to the hotel were also confusing. You are told to drive straight ahead when you exit the highway but the exit lanes are right turn and left turn only. Don't stay here.
