"This hotel was the biggest nastiest dump!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
we booked two rooms online at Clarion for this hotel for ourselves and our daughter and five grandsons, after walking into rooms we turned and left and asked for a refund was told since we booked online we would have to get refund from them, we left, the rooms were nasty the sheets had blood stains the bathtub bottom and sides were peeling off, the toilet was stained with black mold and not cleaned, the counter tops were gross and sticky and had not been cleaned. we booked through Clarion online and after 16 days still have not received a refund, Clarion will never receive a penny from us or anyone we can advise again. This hotel should be condemned! I am sure it is a health hazard.

Overall Score1.0/ 5
Employees could not issue card keys. They put the blame on the owner, that's on you. He's your franchisee, handle your crap! The handyman will let you in your room? Not professional. Kevin Gray 507 421 3693. Call me? I dare you!

"Room not clean."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The room was not clean and also very run down. The plumbing was leaking and the tub was not clean. I had to disinfect everything with antibacterial spray. The restaurant allows smoking so we could not eat there. We checked in late and were traveling with a dog. If not for that, we would have looked for another room.

"Very Underwhelming"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
A big group of us went and got different rooms. Some of our rooms had roaches and blood on walls and doors. Carpets and sheets were very dirty in my room. Air/heat unit didn't work at all. Would not recommend.

"The most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Don't waste your money on this hotel! When I was checking in two of the front desk personel were arguing, we stood listening to them for ten minutes, before they checked us in. The room was disgusting to say the least! I could go on but I won't. I have never given a hotel a bad ratting until now.

"Clarion needs to bulldoze this place and start over."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Cockroach infested, paint peeling, filthy disgusting and stinking rooms. I used to stay here a few years ago, it was a fine hotel. However I don't believe it has ever been up dated or cleaned in many years. It is in a good location but not worth the money I spent there. the lounge is good. I can go on, but why Clarion probably won't listen.

"Needs Work"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I booked this hotel on our way through town. They were completely booked and only had a smoking room available. Went and looked at the room before booking it. I didn't know hotels had smoking rooms still. The lobby stunk to high heaven from smoke. The room had bugs and stains on the bed covers. I looked around the room, went to the lobby and told them I wasn't taking the room. However, the staff was incredibly nice. She told me she would handle my cancellation and get the refund on my cc. Not sure how the non smoking rooms looked, but even if I were a smoker I wouldn't have been happy with the cleanliness of the room.

"Misleading"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I only booked due to the previous room I cancelled. It said I asked for a smoking room that was a lie when I do not smoke. When I opened the door to the room it was a hot ass mess and that's putting it mildly. This place needs to be torn down. I will not even go into details as far as what I saw wrong w/it. Not worth my time, if you want to make it right you can refund me my money and we can call it even. NEVER will I ever again.

"Do not stay here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I did not stay at this hotel. I went to the property and found that there are people who live there full time. These looked like people who were previously homeless. The lobby smelled like cigarette smoke. The whole hotel looked tired and not cared for. While the room rate was quoted as $81, they were going to charge a $30 service fee. They could not tell me what the extra $30 was for other than it was a service fee. I found a newer and much cleaner hotel property a few miles away for a cheaper price.

"Unsafe"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel seems real nice from the lobby. Front desk gal was real busy but once we got in the room it smelled of pot, blankets had hair on them, baseboards look like they never been dusted, there was dog hair on the floor then we changed rooms which was not any better. We woke up to someone pounding on the door yelling for Robert ( we did not answer the door) and people walking past the room talking all night repeating our room number ( cause that's where Robert was ) loud cars and sirens out on the street.

"Awful"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
First room was 85 degrees. The heater would not shut off. There was a spider the size of a half dollar on the wall. The furniture had been upgraded in the second room which was pleasant. The bed was very comfortable. The fixtures in the bathroom were old and cracked. The desk attendant was very helpful.

    "Our group has done this weekend away for 10+ years always in the Napa/Sonoma area in the Spring. For the past 3 years we have stayed at the same location in Sonoma. This year I used your site to try to find a different and more reasonably priced location. Not only did I find a fantastic hotel in a great new location, I save $100 per night over last year's room fee." J.F. - San Francisco, CA
