Clarion is a higher branch of the Choice Hotels. The room was clean & bug free. Free wi-fi worked well. The free breakfast was great...omelets made to order, sausage, gravy, biscuits and the rest of the offerings. Coffee was good (the coffee offered at the Comfort Inns branch is always weak) and strong. Little balcony on the room was nice.
But the free breakfast wasn't really free...found out when we checked in that there was a $9 resort fee added which was NOT shown when I reserved the room at the Choices website. Also, the tax was $1+ more than the estimated shown. Still a good deal but surprising to learn upon checkin.
