Non-smoking room smelled like imbedded smoke. The air quality in the room was terrible. Felt like a dirty motel. Will not stay again.
Choose hotel because of it's close proximity to downtown Richmond
Check in was great I believe his name was Edward very friendly. It is a hotel, but I was given a room on the first floor which was the feel of a motel I did not like that at all very noisy. I just didn't get a comfortable feeling. The room itself was ok at best felt shabby stained carpet, stained chair bathtub drain wouldn't stay open. I suggest paying extra for a nicer hotel or paying less for a motel because that what it feels like no different. I paid $90 for which I could of paid $50. for a motel. Hotel is close to downtown but not close to anything would not stay here again.
The staff at the front desk! Check in time is 3:00 but they happily accommodated my wife and I with a room at 1:30. They didn't have to do that. It made the entire stay that much more enjoyable because of it. We needed to check in and get changed for a 2:30 engagement. Your hospitality just set the mood for the whole weekend! Thanks!
Can't say I had any complaints.
Breakfast was included at this Clarion. Room was large and didn't feel cramped. There was a sofa. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Fitness room was adequate. Location was convenient.
Bathroom light and fan were one switch. Couldn't just turn on the light alone. Fan was loud. First morning, housekeeping didn't come. I had difficulty with the WiFi at times.
spacious room with fridge , and microwave.
