Verified Reviews of Clarion Inn Cedar Falls

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Huge Negative Impression"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When we first secured this hotel, we were told that the rooms would all be updated with new furnishings by our October date. This did not happen. Guests experienced peeling paint, peeling wallpaper, restroom doors that would not close all the way, rooms that should have been reserved on first floor were given on second floor. Guest were not able to check in as we had arranged with a 3pm wedding. Knowing that some would be traveling from out of state and would need a room to freshen up in quickly and head to the wedding. Guests were forced to clean up in the public restrooms, or in the gas station down the street. When guests called to book, they were told the block was full, when it wasn't. Were charged a higher rate. Two guests were even told that their reservation was canceled when they arrived. This was an error on the desk clerk who didn't read through all of the notes left by the person handling the reservations. That same desk clerk told us that she wouldn't turn the air down in the banquet room we reserved because it was ice cold. She told us that if she turned it down, then we would be back to complain it was too hot. We were paying for this room and we wanted it comfortable. The food we ordered was not at all what we talked about. Rooms were charged out to wrong credit cards, etc.. We did discuss all of these issues with the event planner at the hotel. He was embarrassed and he did credit the banquet room back to us and said they would work on guest relations and these other issues. Unfortunately, it did put a dark cloud over the overall experience of our guests. Reflecting on our decision of this hotel, we liked the layout, but unfortunately the hotel did not get updated and one employee made a huge negative impression on many guests and ourselves. We did get an apology from the hotel, but doesn't help with the feelings of guests and the way they were treated. Hope this helps.
