Overall the hotel wasn't too bad. Some attention to detail is definitely in order. First off the floor in the elevator needs to be redone due to some warping/water damage it would appear. Secondly The carpet down the hallways leading to the rooms is a bit dirty and parts of which need repaired or replaced. The overall appearance was pretty decent when you walk in the front by the front desk. The young lady behind the desk was very friendly and professional and got me a room and checked in quickl...

The hotel was very easy to find and check-in was a smooth process. The front staff, Amanda (I think that was her name), was extremely friendly and her bubbly personality was a wonderful experience after a long day of travel. Unfortunately, our room smelled very musty when we walked and the fan for the shower was noisy. The beds were comfortable and the room was otherwise clean.

We have stayed at this hotel for years going to and from Florida but it has steadily gone downhill. The first room backed onto I-75 ,had a balcony door that did not close properly and had no lock - room 220. We declined to stay in that room. Our next room was at the front of the hotel away from the traffic noise. The carpet was not clean and had what looked like gum stuck to it and was torn in places. Fortunately I had brought slippers.The whole room looked as tired as we were after a 14 hour dr... Read more

When I booked this hotel, I read many reviews and decided to go ahead and book because the hotel had received good reviews. I also received a coorporate discount. When my husband and I checked in and got to our room, we were highly disappointed. First of all the room was so small, the smallest king size room I've ever stayed in. The bathtub was black on the bottom and if the cleaning staff cleaned everyday like they should, the tub would not have been black. I've never seen a hotel bathtub like ... Read more

For a one night stay, traveling from Michigan to Tampa, Clarion room was adequate. Bathroom clean, room spacious. Ask for a room with refrigerator / microwave if you want one. Breakfast is free,so don't expect gourmet ; at free ham too salty, waffles ok, but there is fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal options.

Made a phone reservation with Orbitz for the Merchant Center hotel in Knoxville. Asked specifically if there was a pet fee. The Orbitz rep checked and said pets were free and were allowed if they were under 20 lbs. When we checked in at 6PM I mentioned our dog and was told that they charged an extra $20 fee for pets. When I protested,the desk clerk insisted that Clarion had problems with Orbitz giving out wrong information re the pet fee. I refused to pay the added charge. Only after a 15 min co... Read more

I was in Knoxville to make a condolence visit and spent two nights at this location. It is an older property but generally has been maintained. Friendly staff, good location and easy on the wallet. I really enjoyed the shower.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. Our room was near the freeway, and I was awaken several times to the noise. They offered a variety of fresh fruit for breakfast. I got a strawberry waffle with bacon which was good.

Needed a place on the way home, and it worked for the night. Room was relatively clean, and it was less than staying in one of the tourist trap places near Gatlinburg. Room was clean, and the Hotel staff were friendly. Breakfast wasn't bad either.

As a Choice Privileges member, I have been pretty disappointed in the choice hotels that I've stayed at recently. Their website makes it sound like such a great place, but you are sadly disappointed when you arrive. So, when I booked this hotel with reward points, I wasn't expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice clean room, a quiet night of sleep, and a very nice breakfast in a clean and spacious dining area. And the lady at the front desk was very friendly too! What a... Read more
