Decent hotel, shady charges added to room

The hotel and rooms are nice, the staff are courteous. There's a pool, but it doesn't really get much sun past noon.

My only real complaint with this place is that they sneak a $20 (plus taxes) PER DAY fee onto the bill.

If you book on hotels.com or any other 3rd party site, this is not made aware to you. The staff also did not tell me this when I checked into the hotel, only when I checked out.

When I asked what this fee was for, they called it a resort fee. What BS.

Any fees like this should be included into the room rate, and/or made very clear BEFORE making the reservation.

Wouldn't stay here again just for this.

Not really a hotel; more like a motel.

The Clarendon bills itself as a boutique hotel and spa, but it's neither. The hotel is entirely uninviting, with no place to pull in while checking in, barely a lobby, and an overall feel of shabbiness. The structure itself is interesting, and looks to be an old motel that has been tarted up a bit with black walls and minimal finishes. This minimalism extends to a lack of any amenities: no soap, no glasses, no coffee, and only two bath towels (no hand towels and no face cloths). The hotel seems to stay in business by offering special events to 20-somethings on their sky deck. The night I was there is was Halloween bingo. Sounds cute until the amplified music and number calling reverberates throughout the complex. One other thing: there is absolutely nothing around the hotel within walking distance.

Gone downhill the past year...

I've enjoyed past stays at this hotel but this time it was different. They didn't have a PHONE in the room so when a beeping noise went off in the hallway at 3AM I had to call them on my cell phone. Plus, the TV was disconnected from the service which took a long time figuring out how to connect. NO soap for the bathroom sink we had to use the dispenser from the shower area and the carpet in the room was FILTHY!
