I travel a lot in the southeast US and La Quinta is the hotel of choice, but I couldn't find one at this stop so I booked this Clarion. I don't know if they're all the same but once you get past the rather plush lobby, these rooms are just smaller, cheaper La Q rooms.
The bathroom had old ceramic squares floor and small plastic sink area crammed with towel holder, hair dryer etc. The calking around the tub enclosure was cracked and peeling. The wide screen TV was okay but no HD signal defeated the purpose. When I had to do some quick video edits on my laptop, I realized how much I take for granted La Quinta's large work desk and multi plug-in strip. This desk was tiny and cheap with one outlet. I had to unplug the lamp to plug in the video camera.
One notable exception was the pillows. They were not too hard, not too soft, just right. But for $75/night, Clarion is in the upper range of La Q's and frankly, I don't see how this one justifies it.
