My wife and I travel often, 4-6 nights each month. She loves Holiday Inn, I use Choice they are convenient to my kids. We've stayed at HI, Oneonta and they are no bad, cheaper than Clarion, but the HI in Cooperstown is beautiful and better priced. This time I visited with my brother. We come to watch our son compete in sports.
The hallways at this Clarion are dark and the carpets are tired and have a little funky smell, maybe they dim the lights. I pulled open the sheets and my brother remarks, "is that hair?" . Yes, there were quite a few of them. When I reached for the phone to call the front desk he said again, hair, and is that a dead bug on the receiver? Yes to both. Well I packed and my brother went to the front desk to get another room. The first thing I did was reach for the sheets and after close examination I found another long, black hair. The pillows looked ok as well as the rest of the sheets, and my brothers bed was good. I was exhausted after driving 6 hours and saved the hair in the comments paper from the manager Michael. I signed the outside of the paper.
Upon checkout the new people at the desk asked why we were handing in a key for a different room. I told them the story and handed them the comments with the hair, and showed it too them, and requested they give it to the manager. They were apologetic.
Breakfast is not free but I wasn't in the mood even if they offered us a comp which they didn't.
This occurred last Saturday, 5/10. Its Wednesday evening. I thought I might get a hello were sorry but that didn't happen.
The new Hampton Inn is a good replacement and I was belatedly told have a $79. rate if you are a parent of a college student on a visit.
I have never taken the time to write a review like this. The Clarion is in town, near the "action" I guess but it isn't with the premium.
