I do a lot of traveling with my company and I stay in a lot of hotels. I've stayed in some very shady hotels and some very nice hotels. But the Clarion Inn in Dothan is one, if not my favorite.

The hotel is in a good location but it is in need of renovation. For the price, it wasn't the best place we have stayed in but wasn't the worst either. The bar allows smoking and "reeked" so we didn't take advantage of their Happy Hour but some of our friends did and they enjoyed the time they spent there.... More

Sharon, Thank you for your response. We apologize that the smoking atmosphere in the bar deterred you from enjoying Jake's.

Always start with something nice. Well the staff was friendly. After that it was down hill. I am embarrassed for Choice Hotels if this represents them.

This place had 3 star rating, but that is laughable. The rooms are not clean. And, the exterior is even worse. Cigarette butts and trash all over. Ample breakfast buffet is only thing giving this clarion any stars at all. Do not be fooled by their $60 rate. It's not that great a deal!

Stayed at this location twice. Rooms could stand to be updated, but it is a clean facility. Best part is the friendly, helpful staff, and the wonderful hot breakfast. Can't beat the friendliness and the breakfast. Will definitely stay here again; well worth the money.

I picked this place because the latest review had been just terrible. Previous reviews were mostly positive, so I had to decide for myself. It is a big, and pretty old property. It is not selling itself as Hampton or Courtyard. It is, however, fairly priced and good value. If I were paying an additional $80 a night, I could... More
