Felt very unsafe staying there. The people hanging around in the parking lot were sketchy. Front desk clerk was not friendly or pleasant. Was run down, dirty. Breakfast not on par with other Choice Hotels. Will not return.

Ms. Nelson did a fabulous job in securing our stay at the Clarion. Our room was clean and comfortable. The fundome and its activities, which included a pool, shuffleboard,...

My job requires me to travel and stay in hotels most of the year. First let me say this - my company pays my hotel expenses, so if I don't like a hotel, I find another one. I stayed at this hotel from March until September...around 200 days. The staff goes out of their way to make you comfortable. The...

My husband and I love to go to Washington, D.C., but find the hotel prices there to be quite high, so we love to stay in College Park, MD and take the train into the city. The free hotel shuttle allows us to to this and all we have to do is work our schedule around the shuttle availability hours....

Overall we were very pleased with our recent Clarion stay. One very big disappointment was the breakfast which was offered. There were no choices within the egg/protein selection. Cold hard boiled eggs each and every morning. Also, one particular morning at 9:45A they ran out of eggs and the server refused to replenish. We did contact the front desk and...

I wouldn't consider myself "High Maintenance" by any standards but I'm not so sure the Clarion Hotel staff members would say the same. I was pleasantly surprised with how attentive and helpful the staff members were with me. Michelle from the front desk seamlessly facilitated and provided a room suitable specifically for my business needs. As a traveling business man,...

It was a really good stay for my family and I. We had a long drive and the stay at our hotel was the greatest. The pool is open and indoors and enjoyable for all ages. There were so many things to entertain the kids such as the pool, mini golf, games and access to the gym for adults. The...
