“Creepy”
Reviewed 20 October 2011

I have to be fair and first say that the room was clean and adequate. However, the check in desk was in a building separate from the building the room was in. It was after dark and scary finding our way to our room. I thought we were going to get mugged because we had to go outside again and over to another building. It was COMPLETELY empty and deserted. It was like a maze getting to our room and my daughter and I felt very vulnerable and unsafe. In the morning the showers were not hot, just barely luke warm. If you choose to stay here, get there in the daylight and have a male companion with you.

Room Tip: ask if there is hot water available in the showers, stay with a male companion, and check in before...

We knew nothing about Richmond neighborhoods when we chose this hotel. Pulled in after dark and did not feel as though it was a safe place for two women to stay.

Good hotel to stay at if you're going to RIR. Only 2.5 miles from the track. Room was nice. The hotel was very busy since we checked in on race day, but that is to be expected. It's located right off of I-64/95, so that's a huge plus. Since the hotel was very busy, it was great that they had plenty of parking. The parking garage wasn't even halfway full. Good hotel to stay at if you're going to RIR or downtown.

Nice value for this in town hotel. Front desk was accommodating. Room recently remodeled (or so it seemed).

Room Tip: Stayed in 4 story building, was quiet.

We picked the hotel from the gps. We wanted to stay somewhere cheap on our 17 hr trip. The hotel was clean and quiet. Pet friendly. The staff were really friendly.

Our family booked a block of rooms for our family reunion the weekend of Aug 12-Aug 14,2011.First all the rooms were NOT together we were scattered all over the facility. All thge rooms were not equal for the same price. We were told all rooms included a refrigerator and microwave which they did not. There was an issue with the towels (4 people in a room 3 towels) . The manager on duty Friday night was rude, the other management personel were accomodating.

Rasik K, General Manager at Clarion Hotel Richmond Central, responded to this review, 6 September 2011
Thank you for choosing the Clarion Hotel Richmond Central for your family Reunion group rooms. I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback for your visit. I apoligize that we couldn't accommodate everyone in group together or on the same floor due to higher occupancy, we tried our best to put most of the family reunion guest on same area. From the Staff and managemetns, Please accept our apology for customer service and Towel issues occurred during your recent stay. Again thank you for your business and looking forward to your return.
