Verified Reviews of Clarion Inn & Suites University Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Maac group!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel was not appropriate for my group due to outside doors to the rooms. I was not told of this layout, nor did the any pictures online show this. The rooms were small and had outdated fixtures. The remainder of the hotel had many areas that were in disarray and not clean. As well as the work out room was not as it appeared online. All of the doors to the hotel were accessible without a room key, so it was not secure. I would not recommend this hotel for any type of lengthy stay. Only if you needed a cheap place to sleep in passing through Auburn.
