“They Lost Me at Breakfast”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The Clarion is in one building of what used to be a large three-building motel and conference center. The building nearest the road is now vacant. The middle building houses a Rodeway Inn and conference center. The back building houses the Clarion. Our room was very large and well equipped with a desk and chair, dresser unit, TV, microwave, refrigerator, and easy chair with footstool. The bed was a high four poster. The bathroom was quite large with a tub/shower. There was a separate sink area across from a large closet. Our room was very quiet, even though it was situated directly above the entrance and across a parking lot from the Rodeway, which did not have an interior hallway. The bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly. There is an early evening happy hour with two free drinks. What kept this from being a five-star visit was the breakfast. The eggs were lukewarm; the sausage was at room temperature. Even the water for tea was only warm. It was quite a disappointing ending to an otherwise good stay.

Thank you for choosing our Clarion Inn during you recent visit to Tupelo. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your spacious guest room and double vanity bathroom. I would like to to take this oppurtunity to to apologize for your disappointing breakfast. We had a problem with the element on the urn for the water causing it not to be hot. Since your visit the urn has been fixed and I am glad to inform you that the issue has been resolved. As for your problem with the other breakfast items your comments have been shared with our breakfast staff to ensure these types of situations are prevented in the future.

Once again thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Tupelo. We hope to have another oppurtunity to provide you with excellent accomodations soon.

I have been travelling more than usual in last couple of weeks. Here are some of my observations:

Clarion hotels are all over the map in quality; some are unacceptable and the others offer best possible service and quality. This Clarion was/is a good one.

Both night shift and morning shift were professional, friendly and helpful. Room and public areas were clean and the breakfast was well served, attended and more than what we would expect.

Nice place to stay. I will stay there again when in Tupelo.

Room Tip: Don't get confused; 700 series rooms is Second Floor not 7th floor.

Nice place we did not expect the hotel to be so clean and it met and exceeded our expectations. We stayed their for a night on our way to gulf shores and got some good rest and free hot breakfast that's the best part.

we stopped here by accident and what a gem of a find. The staff were more than friendly and helpful, they made us feel like family, the room and bed was just beautiful. Breakfast was superb and we even had china crockery and real glasses to eat/drink from.

Room Tip: Location away from main lobby is the quietest

Overall a good, inexpensive place to stay. But I depend on hotel Wi-Fi as a lifeline, and the signal was far too weak to connect reliably in my room (a room in the middle of the second floor, not some distant corner). When I could manage to connect for a moment or two, the data was unusably slow.

I called the front desk, who immediately informed me (without taking time to check) that it was "working," and showed no interest in getting the problem solved. They did agree to bring an Ethernet cable up to my room, which meant I could get Internet access on my laptop (but not my other devices), and only as long as I stayed chained to the desk. Sorry, guys, but reliable wireless internet is a necessity for me in a hotel, and not having it is a dealbreaker.

We stopped here on our way back from Thanksgiving trip to Oklahoma. The room was expansive with king size bed, microwave and mini fridge. nice size bathroom. Full breakfast included in reasonable price of less than $60. There is also limited dinner menu in restaurant, not included in price. It is off US 78.
