Bed was very comfortable ant there was a refrigerator in the room with a couple bottles of water which I appreciated. They have a bar and restaurant but...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 February 2017

Stayed last night, 17 Feb on the tail end of a park and stay. Check in was a nightmare as it was extremely busy. The mgr. John Martinelli did an outstanding job in helping ease the frustration of guests checking in. He did everything from handing out free water to personally apologizing for circumstances that were ot his fault. I...

I was sent here for the night after missing a connection at the airport. The front desk and restaurant were both understaffed. I could handle that, but the room was horrible. Dead bugs on the carpet, moldy bathroom, unidentified "stuff" on the carpet, and a broken lock to the connecting room next door solved by using basic cabinet latch. Unclean...

American Airlines canceled our flight after hours and hours of delays, and sent in essence an entire plane full to this hotel for an overnight stay with vouchers. The hotel's shuttle system was pretty much overwhelmed, so we took Uber over. Good thing. I would probably otherwise have taken another hour and a half to check in at 11 PM,...

I felt safe and the room was comfortably tidy. However the staff at check in lacked simple people skills....neither even looked at us to greet or even see why we were coming in. Furniture stained and well worn. Leaky faucets and slow drains.

This property is worn, and it shows. My room carpet was dated and stained. Several nicks in the sinks and tub. One of my room sinks was clogged and drained slowly. There was an empty soda bottle and other trash underneath one of the beds. The pillows and bedding were comfortable. This place just needs some attention and renovation.

My wife and I had an early flight on Tuesday morning so we stayed at the Clarion Monday night and parked for free for a week (Buy Reservation.com is the website to get this deal). Our room faced east so we saw and heard every jet taking off from the airport. We've stayed here before but our room faced west...

The hotel is old but the staff was very accommodating. The restaurant and bar was good as well. The front desk staff made sure we were well taking care of. The airport shuttle was right on time. If I fly into Philly again this will be my hotel of choice.
