"Only Motel I Know With Autopay That Takes Payment Without Authorization"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I was working in the area and was offered a rate of $50 a night plus tax for my extended stay, which was a decent rate. The room was large and fairly clean, although I found old clothing from previous guests behind the dresser and the bathroom had mold around the tub and in the tiles in the bathroom ceiling. I noticed after my first couple weeks stay that even though I would go and renew every (Thursday) which is the day that I checked in they were automatically withdrawing money from my account. I called while I was at work and requested that the automatic payments needed to stop and that I will renew every Thursday and was told I would need to talk to the Manager. I asked to speak with him and he was unavailable, I left a message for him to call me back, and he never did! I have been staying in various hotels all over the U.S. for my line of work for the past 10 years, including other Clarion Hotels and never have I seen one have autopay that withdraws money without your consent! I watched my account and continued to come down on my renew day and still there was pending charges in my account without my consent. When I finally was able to speak with the manager after trying to solve this problem for three weeks and trying to speak with him he informed me that he was busy and he didn't have time to get back with me and assured me over the phone that he had stopped the autopay. He also said he would stay until after I was back to the motel from work. When I arrived he was there and I explained to him the situation and showed him the pending charges in my account only for him to tell me that he could not control the autopay (even though he told me on the phone it was stopped) and that the motel had always operated that way since he started there and told me they had a right to do that because I was staying there. We got into an argument to where I left to stay in a different motel but not before he swore at me and told me I was no longer welcome at the Hotel. I'm no idiot I am very aware that a computer does not come up with random amounts to charge you. I am very appalled at how rude and unprofessional the manager of the Clarion was. I tried to solve this problem for three weeks before finally speaking to him and only for him to argue with me and then blacklist me from the hotel and I stayed there for over a month with no problems created on my end! Also, the restaurant inside the Hotel was very poor, small menu selection, service was very slow, food was usually cold when it arrived and one time I had order chipotle chicken penne and it arrived without the chicken! I suggested staying at another hotel. This one needs to get there business together and possibly new management!

"Good Stay at Clarion South St. Paul"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The property itself needs a little updating. We were not real impressed with the housekeeping. Some of our rooms were not cleaned (or the housekeepers were overwhelmed by the way four teenagers keep a room and chose to skip it). We did find the hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Dealing with key issues and other things with kindness and professionalism.

"Tiny Queen Beds. Old Rooms."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The shower wouldn't drain. We were supposed to have queen rooms. They were very small beds. Our room smelled like smoke and it wasn't a smoking room.

"Under Staffed"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
For an older hotel, the appearance wasn't bad but it didn't take long to notice they were way under staffed. We did not get our room cleaned while we were there (never saw housekeeping). The bartender was also the cook. The manager was the shuttle driver when the maintenance guy was busy. The staff was very nice and accommodating. They need to fix things, but all the issues are very fixable.

"New Management. In the Process of Updating, but Not There Yet."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The Clarion Hotel has good bones and nice staff. However, it hasn't been maintained and it's my understanding that they are in the process of bringing it up to speed. It's supposed to be a non-smoking hotel, but we had to switch rooms right off the bat because it was so smokey. The toilet didn't flush well. My other relatives had to switch rooms because of smoke, then ceiling tiles were falling in the bathroom and their toilet didn't flush either. Two of the ice machines weren't working, the spa was closed, the treadmill slowed and sped up. I truly see this as being a good hotel again, but I'd give them time to start fixing it up.
