“Nice friendly comfortable place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Stayed here on road trip around Southern states. Good price, nice and confortable and very friendly and helpful staff. Hot breakfast included. Cleaner and tidier than some of the older style road hotels

Room Tip: Clean, comfortable and good value

The Clarion is a very good value. The condition of the room was very good. The reception from the moment I called to the moment we checked in was friendly and welcoming. Know that it is tricky to find. Don't let that dissuade you. Breakfast was very good. We had checked other hotels and the price point was slightly less. They comped a couple of drinks and chatting with Jo who served them to us was a pleasure.

Honestly no complaints, one of the best in affordability and quality. The room was clean, beds were very comfortable, shower pressure was great and the breakfast was awesome. I will definitely stay here again when in the area. The location is not too good at all but once we found it everything else was very good.

This hotel is trying soooo hard but it is older. We were booked here for the labor day weekend. Got there and it just wasn't good but not the worst place. We checked out our rooms. Just kind of creepy/dingy.....The smell ??? and the humidifier was running which tells me they have some moisture problems. The room was previously the "sweetheart" suite in a previous life. A big RED sunken in tub with 2 shower heads (like 2 people at the same time) and a big window right in front of the shower with a sheer window covering and the other side of the window was the bed. Not enough privacy for a family. The bed looked very comfortable and nice quality. The front desk was super nice. Their hotel breakfast area and bar area looked very nice as well. They share a parking lot with the Rodeway and they share the same pool. We were staying there with friends but their room did not fit their situation based on what they read online (they thought they were getting a separate bedroom area from the living area - A true SUITE) and since they were leaving and picking a different place, we followed them and I was glad to go.

I would like to apologize for failing to meet your standards and expectations during your recent stay at our hotel. I understand that you had problems with your room, if informed our desk agent would have been happy to move you to another room.

The "humidifier" was actually an air purifier, we put it in the room because the room is close to our breakfast area and it relieves the food aroma. I am sorry the room type was not appropriate for your family, but after reviewing your file and your "friends" you both booked the rooms on Choicehotels.com were a description and pictures of the rooms is clearly available.

We appreciate your feedback even though you did not stay at our hotel.

This is an older hotel that is behind a closed hotel and I found the location a little creepy. The staff was friendly but the hotel was really dated. I had double beds and one of them had a hair on the sheets and the soap holder in the shower looked to be on its last leg. The breakfast was really good.

This is a very nice older hotel situated behind a Rodeway Inn. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and cool. You get a micro, fridge, and flat screen. Bathroom was tiny but well cleaned. The breakfast was complementary and was excellent. Scrambled eggs, sausage (brat style), biscuit, waffles, cereal, bagels, juices, & coffee. It was a nice quiet one night stay. I travel a lot and see a lot of nice hotels and this place is a great value for what you get. The only drawback was they share a parking lot with the Rodeway and that's not a high class establishment.

I travel often, and typically I have no choice of the hotels I work in. Clarions are at the BOTTOM of my list; they are the dingiest, dirtiest, most poorly managed chain I have encountered. I'm hard-pressed to give them a "1" rating.

This Clarion is DIFFERENT. It still has some of the Clarion trademarks--stained upholstery and soiled carpeting, for instance--but our room had a very comfy king bed [unusual at a Clarion], a granite-appointed bath, a granite-appointed kitchenette, two sink areas [one in the bath and another adjacent to the closet], and a HUGE amount of space.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel offered "happy hour" with 2 free drinks per guest in the evening and a hot/cold breakfast in the morning, for the low rate of about $85 per night! We were able to use the biz center computer and copier at no charge.

This is clearly an older facility, and they've worked hard to update it. The only real complaint we had was the air conditioning. Our AC unit was so loud that every time it kicked on, it woke us up! Other than that, if you want a comfortable bed for a night or two in Tupelo, put the Clarion on your short list.

Room Tip: Clarion's registration desk, which you enter at parking-lot level, is considered the sixth floor...
