Our group was unanimous in their praise for the staff in the hotel. The hotel has recently changed from a Holiday Inn to a Clarion with some minor maintenance underway. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast (included) was very good and well prepared. I would strongly recommend this hotel for groups or individuals.

Pamela was responsive and friendly. Someone had removed the safety bar from the sliding glass door in our room on the renovated first floor. Maintenance was there to replace it within 15 minutes. Bravo! Some of the electrical outlets were wobbly and had no power. The bed was comfortable and towels soft and fluffy. Breakfast was less than adequate. The...

Came to the Clarion Inn for a business trip to Columbus, GA. This used to be a Holiday Inn Express that has been sold. I had a comfortable nights stay and enjoyed the hot breakfast the next morning that was pretty good. This hotel provides what I needed.

We were shocked by how big this hotel was - we were walking forever to get to our room. That was sorta of nice because we were far away from everything and it was nice and quiet. The staff was extremely friendly - every single person we met on our way out said "good morning". The room could use some...

First and foremost, Let me inform you that this hotel has NO elevator. That little tidbit is not advertised and I feel that it's on purpose. Now, My husband and I planned to stay at this hotel for a little over a month. I booked this hotel based off the pictures provided on TripAdvisor. As you can see, the room...

The room wasn't ready when we arrived but the staff was very apologetic. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable. We did not eat there so I can't comment on that, but we will stay here again when we are in Columbus. The price was very reasonable

My family and I evacuated to this hotel for hurricane Mathew. We drove 7 hours not knowing what to expect. It was the only hotel that had rooms available during the storm that accepted pets. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were updated with nice furniture, granite counter tops, comfortable beds and pillows!! Even though they allow dogs, you wouldn't...

We were running from a hurrican and landed here. Three rooms, two dogs, pandemonimum. Arrived before check-in time, so our rooms weren't ready yet. And that is when the happiness began. Every request we had, they managed to accomodate. More importantly, they really wanted to help. The staff here is warm, friendly, cheerful, and always bending over backwards to help....

Very conveniently located hotel and if going to events at Fort Benning probably cheaper than the closer hotels. As others have mentioned, the hotel is a bit dated and in need of a refresh. However my room was clean, quiet and smelled fine. Everything worked although the mini fridge freezer needed to be defrosted. Breakfast was okay I've had better...
