Other than the Lobby this place is a dive! Duct tape help the door push bar on at alternate exit point. The bathtub looked like it was caulked by a two year old and was full of mold. Room was run down with a dirty appearance. One the beds had stains on the sheets. Other than the desk nobody could... More

There was nothing special about this hotel, but after 38 hours flying from NZ back to Australia and then on to the US, all I was looking for was a decent bed and pillow and a hot shower. And that's exactly what I got. The breakfast offerings are very carbohydrate and sugar loaded, so I had the smelly crispy bacon... More

Nothing offensive or great about this hotel, although the person checking us in was very nice and helpful. It's definitely seen it's better days and looks like it has not had a remodel in about 20 years. It's in a convenient area and easy to get to from the airport.

Our flight out of GR was cancelled and Delta stuck us in this Hotel. They picked us up in a filthy van that had brake problems and the driver drove like a maniac! The front desk was prepared for us and had us in our room in minutes. They weren't overly friendly, just doing their job. Offered us a free... More

I would not recommend it unless the price is a lot lower than near-by hotels/motels. Broken down lounge chair was dirty, the work desk didn't have any extra power outlets for a charger (often as a part of the lamp base, but found one available under the desk), one of the two CFL bulbs in the desk lamp was broken,...

After many stays at this hotel in the past, I returned with some friends. We had each booked a king room.the price had gone up, but we booked anyway. When we checked in my friends had a room with one double bed. It also had damaged wood by the lock and looked like someone had tried to break in. We... More

Unfortunatly, the accommodations were not very good.The type of room we reserved was not available when we arrived & the front desk staff wasnt at all carng of our needs. The girl that worked the breakfast area was awesone and friendly.She was the only good part of the stay.

The hotel was great and they are dog friendly. The only issue I have is with the pillows. A king bed with pillows the size of throw cushions doesn't cut it. There are many places around to eat supper. We were just travelling through. The breakfast was good with everything you might want unless you are super fussy.

After over 13 hours at the GRR airport (whimper), my airline called for a shuttle to take me to the Clarion for the night while we waited for my airplane to be fixed. By that point, I think I'd have been thrilled with anything reasonably clean. The shuttle driver was pleasant without expecting a worn-out non-traveler to converse. One star... More
