The staff was A+. All staff was helpful, friendly, and went out of their way to talk to you and offer assistance. Todd, at the front desk, was particulary outgoing, personable, and funny. Hats off to the entire staff. The hotel is in great need of updating. Bathrooms are old, toilets are low and positioned poorly. One of our toilets...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 March 2017

When we stayed here several years ago, the lobby was torn apart and the rooms needed upgrading. When we stayed this time, we were amazed by the transformation. Our room and bathroom was renovated and looked great. It was all very clean. Our only "issue" was that the entrance to the banquet facility was at the far end of our...

Lobby was filthy, people waiting in line to check in, kids running around. The alarm clock did not work, kept displaying the wrong time. Toilet was so low, it was...

Another quick in and out stay. We had to drive around back, however, that was ok. It was quiet and peaceful. You had two enternaces to our room, one from the outside and the other from the lobby of the hotel. The lady who greeted us was nice and helpful.

Hotel is old. Carpet in room is filthy tub is old and worn. Both need to be replaced. Lobby is nice but you don't stay in the lobby. Major upgrades are needed. The location is good which is why I picked it. Would not stay here again. Clarion can do much better.

We stayed 2 nights at the Clarion and felt it needed a full make-over. The staff was cheerful and helpful, and check-in was easy. Our room was adequate, with the toilet more at home in a Home Depot restroom than in a hotel. The swimming pool was small and towels had to be brought from our room. The hot tub...

We booked here to visit Yale with our son. The booking promised a shuttle service to the university, and we confirmed the shuttle appointment when we checked in. The next morning as we were waiting I asked if the shuttle was coming soon, and was told they didn't have one, except for groups. When I said it had been promised,...

Room was clean, that's the only good thing I can say about this hotel. Shabby is putting it nicely. Dresser was broken and spackle on the wall where the towel rack had been repaired had never been painted and it was obviously not a new repair(white spackle on tan wall). Bathtub had so many repair spots that we were afraid...

Let me start this review off with something positive. The service was very good.....that's where it ends. This hotel was below my expectations and standards. There was a permanent flood in the hallway leading to the elevators. The room smelled, the carpet was worn and disgusting, and when I checked in the heat was off and room temperature was 54...
