Verified Reviews of Crowne Plaza Cleveland South Independence

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Safety/Security Non existing."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The room was fine, but the lack of any form of light in the parking area was a total lack of security. The exterior walkway was pitch black. We have stayed before. but we will not return. Unsafe..very unsafe!

05-Aug-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Jul 30 to Fri Jul 31 2020 at a $99.99 average nightly rate.
"Don't stay here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This is the worst Crown Plaza and a shame to its name. Very old room and furniture, leak in bathroom and paint peeling in the room. Loud music and noise in the parking lot into two am in the morning. Garbage spread all over the parking lot, etc. If you have stayed at Crown Plaza and you know the standard, this is not.

"Worst hotel I have stayed."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
It is the worst hotel I have stayed at. Rooms were very old and broken, water leaks, poor management, music and loud noise in the parking lot until two am, constant door banging, etc. never recommend this to anyone. A shame for crown plaza and IHG.

"Don’t stay here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I chose this hotel because I am an IHG member. Lobby looks clean but room and outside of the hotel is very poor. Window shades were broken and not fixed. No carpet and all furniture in the room must be a decade old. Not an IHG standard and definitely not worth the price.

The room didn’t have a microwave and refrigerator, is not good for family with kids.

"Very Good"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Had a nice stay here at Crowne Plaza. Clean, very pleasant people, and good food. Loved the indoor pool and hot tub. When visiting Ohio I will choose this hotel again. Thanks.
