N. Boulevard Motel Says It’s Too Good for Sex Expo

After we broke the news (organizers sent us a press release, but still) that the state’s first adult entertainment expo is coming to Richmond on June 1, reports emerged that the Clarion Hotel on North Boulevard is trying to get out of its contract to host the event.

The hotel is under new management, and “the expo doesn't line up with their new image,” according to NBC-12, which broadcast two reports on the subject in as many days. The motel is two stories and sandwiched between I-64 and the ball park. Online reviewers describe it alternately as “crappy” and “somewhat creepy at night.”

The expo’s organizers told the station that they have a contract and won’t back down. Clarion, meanwhile, is threatening to not rent rooms to expo-goers.

NBC-12 is promising to closely follow this “developing story.”
