This location is currently undergoing exterior updates and therefore there is construction noise starting at 7 a.m. which the desk clerk warns you about at check in. She will also tell you they no longer serve breakfast and that coffee is available in the lobby 24/7 because there is no coffee maker in the room. Both of these items were...

This hotel is clean! Comfortable bed, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and friendly staff. The lighting isn't that good but everything else is. This is the best Choice hotel we've stayed in under $70 a night!

Worst place I have ever stayed! If I was not on a bus tour I would never have spent the night there! Be careful where Diamond Tours books you. Most of the rooms were missing something....room smelled....felt dirty. Free breakfast? Don't bother....it was horrible! Finding the "dining"room, after going thru the dimly lit pool area was an adventure and when...

I would have usually given the hotel a better rating - been there 3 times before - however on our stay on February 24 there was no plug in the tub to enable me to have a bath. Called front desk and was told they would see what they could do but never heard back from them. Saturday morning went...

This place is a dump. Avoid at all cost. There is no wifi. It works for three minutes and drops. Useless. Room had dead bugs in one end and not sure how many times we had to get new 'key' cards. Rooms smell musty too. Will never come back and probably never stay at another Clairon due to this dump.

We stayed two nights - one southbound and one northbound off I-75. Amber at the front desk is simply lovely. Main likes: comfortable clean rooms, great value. Main dislikes: a little 'tired', limited breakfast options. Nearby dinner options include Full-Service BBQ (take-away)

Overall the hotel wasn't too bad. Some attention to detail is definitely in order. First off the floor in the elevator needs to be redone due to some warping/water damage it would appear. Secondly The carpet down the hallways leading to the rooms is a bit dirty and parts of which need repaired or replaced. The overall appearance was pretty...

The hotel was very easy to find and check-in was a smooth process. The front staff, Amanda (I think that was her name), was extremely friendly and her bubbly personality was a wonderful experience after a long day of travel. Unfortunately, our room smelled very musty when we walked and the fan for the shower was noisy. The beds were...

We have stayed at this hotel for years going to and from Florida but it has steadily gone downhill. The first room backed onto I-75 ,had a balcony door that did not close properly and had no lock - room 220. We declined to stay in that room. Our next room was at the front of the hotel away from...

When I booked this hotel, I read many reviews and decided to go ahead and book because the hotel had received good reviews. I also received a coorporate discount. When my husband and I checked in and got to our room, we were highly disappointed. First of all the room was so small, the smallest king size room I've ever...
