Verified Reviews of Clarion Inn & Suites University Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Awful!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We selected this hotel because it was advertised as pet friendly and showed a rating of very good. When we checked in we immediately saw the rating was bogus. The pool was covered in green algae. The landscaped areas were weeds and bottle caps. The door to the room looked like it had been broken into at some point and would not lock properly. The room itself was disgusting. The carpet hadn't been cleaned in years, the bathroom was moldy. Overall it was the worst hotel I have ever seen. We immediately checked out and found another place to stay. I'm not sure where the Very Good rating came from, but whomever displayed it should be prosecuted for fradulent advertising.

"There was a unpleasant scent that greeted me, not clean."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The first impression of your hotel was affected by all of the dirty plate glass windows in the foyer and entrance. The room smelled dirty. There was a fan blowing trying to air dry a leak. This is not a facility that lives up to the name Clarion. I canceled and went to another facility. Very unpleasant experience.

"Old Hotel"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The place is old, outside excess, got locked out on my room, door latch was stuck.

"First off I was billed for the room before I ever even stayed there. That was not good to begin with"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The facility was outdated, the hotel billed me the full amount of the room two weeks before I even arrived. I was told I could not cancel. The pool was slimy, the over all appearance of the hotel was just bad. The reviews were a “2” when advertised as a 4. This place should be bull dozed down and start over.

"The room was not clean and in need of maintenance."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The bathtub did not drain and was stopped up with standing water. The toilet made noise that kept us awake all night. Also the blow dryer and electrical outlets in the room did not work and we were there for a college graduation. Overall I expected more from a Clarion Hotel. Bad experience.

"Cigarette butts on the floor."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The front desk area was very nice, the gentleman we spoke to was very nice and extremely friendly! When we got to our room though, it smelled like stale cigarettes, the mattress caved in when you just sat on it and the room very obviously wasn't vacuumed. There was trash on the floor and ole cigarette butts. Could be a very nice place if they took care of the rooms the way they do the front entrance.
