My wife and I stayed at the inn Sunday Feb 19th in order to visit STA-5 on Monday. The inn is attractive, well kept up, and charming. However, perhaps Sunday afternoon isn't the best time to arrive or maybe we just hit it on an off day, but we were not entirely satisfied with our experience.
For one, staff appeared unmotivated and unenthusiastic. Although our questions at the desk were answered, no information was volunteered, including what time breakfast was served. The king bedroom was small but adequate, and the bed comfortable. A TV upgrade would be helpful, as the old set doesn't quite fit in its cabinet, and the remote doesn't control all functions. As the hotel restaurant is apparently not open Sunday evenings, we can't report on dinner. However for breakfast at 7:00 there was no server in evidence, so we helped ourselves to coffee, found the cook in the kitchen, and ordered breakfast. At that point a person who claimed to be our waitress appeared, asked if we had coffee, then disappeared. Again we had to enter the kitchen to inquire about the juice and fresh fruit that was supposed to be part of the guest menu. We never did get the fruit.
A previous review noted that the Clewiston Inn might benefit from a bit of 'tweaking' and we agree. Perhaps starting with the somewhat out of place electric sign board at the hotel entrance announcing "Breakfast Buffett" and "Fisherman Welcome". The place could be a lot nicer with only a little effort.
