ROACH IN THE ROOM

Roach found lounging on the wall next to the bathroom. NO DISCOUNT WAS OFFERED NOR MENTIONED FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. It changed the remaining time spent there.

Not what you'd expect!

Hotel was more like motel 6 than a clarion. The best part of the hotel by far is its lobby. Room wasn't bad just not what you'd expect for the name, advertised a high def flat screen tv yet had an old school tube tv. Room was a little dirty especially bathroom. Kids running around outside rooms knocking on doors and being extremely loud at 3:00 am and staff never put a stop to it. However if you're only interested in being close to Busch gardens then this is the place.

WORST STAY

Beware when you book this dive. bottom line, poor customer service, poor accomodations (complete with spiders and had to use body weight to close the door), the hotel ran out of essentials (towels), had to ask for a coffee pack for the room and clean out the coffee maker, the AC did not cool and sounded as if an airplane was in the room, advertized wi-fi did not work. on the positive, good pool and close to VA hospital. Here is the full story. We arive with our pre-paid confirmation. At this point we are ready to check in and go see childrens g-pa in the VA hosptial (criticaaly ill). The staff put us in a room, we notice tv not working. We call, the front desk say they will send someone up. We unpack for a family of 4. They call back 30 minutes later to say, they have to move us (the room should not have been used-per maint. man). We get our second room, This was suposed to be a non-smoking room- smelled like smoking, now ph doesn't work, had to use my cell ph to call the front desk. Now we are being moved to our 3rd room, that has been 'thoroughly checked' by staff, 1st thing on the bed, my son says-thinking it is neat, 'mommy look a spider', and when I pulled out the dresser drawer it fell apart. ok it is ~830 pm at this point. too late to go see g-pa. we have been there ~3 hrs waiting to get settled, at no time did they offer to get us a meal, or upgrade the reservation. in fact it was a down grade. So we kill the spider, call maint. get the bug and dresser issue addressed. The next day, after visiting g-pa we come back for me to make lunch for the kids, microwave doesn't work. seriously!. call down they bring up a new one. While there, housekeeping wants us to leave before they will clean. as we re-enter she tells us there are not enough towels, she left us one and said she would return. After another visit with g-pa and incoming relatives, we go visit gravesite of another relative. we get back about 10 pm. go to bed. get up and relealize no towels, long story short after an hour and a half and 3 calls they finally tell us there are none and we need to wait for the dryer to finish. for a time we should have been stress free in our arrangements, it was the worst ever. I did ask for the manager-none on site or available. The supervisor said he left a message for the manager to call me when they came in on Monday-no call. I called there the manager was unavailable. Then called corporate, there is a procedure, I am currently in process....
