This was the newest and cleanest motel on the strip. I had an opportunity to check out most of the motels on the strip and they were all outdated and musky smelling. the only other decent motel was the Hamption inn and they were more expensive and not as nice as the Clarion. This Clarion had a great free hot... More

When you make your reservation, the rate you think you got is NOT the final rate! The telephone reservation person confirms your rate and doesn't mention "additional hotel fees". When you get an email confirmation, the rate, with local taxes & fees is listed in nice bold print. In small, fine print at the bottom is a note that they... More

Great hotel! Stayed on one of the larger suites and it was very spacious. Room/maid service was excellent. Prompt attention to needs like down free pillows and extra towels. The full breakfast was excellent and super easy. I would only suggest adding a second omelette/egg station to decrease waiting.
