“Great staff!”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were very clean. On my 2nd day the housekeeping staff designed my new towels to look like an elephant, and left us (2) toothbrushes as the tusks. Very creative and made our return to the room a pleasant surprise. Ask for a room facing the water and on a high floor - Would stay again!

Dear AC_RC_03,

Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. We at the Clarion Hotel South Bay always try to do something a little extra for our guests, such as the elephant towels, and we will inform housekeeping you liked them. Thank you again for such a wonderful comment and we are looking forward to your return.

The Clarion Hotel was worth every penny. The rooms are really nice and always clean. I had a view of the Naval Base and that was really great. It was also nice having a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and an iron in the room. I also had to wash some clothes and they have a washer and dryer for $1.25 each, and they sell laundry detergent at the front desk for .50 cents. Needless to say that was awesome to have available. Thank you for the staff and everyone who made my stay so pleasant.

Room looked good and it was clean. Paid about $100 per nite. Big desk and nice TV in room. Also had a refrigerator and microwave. And there were no bed bugs :) I checked under mattress and under bed. Over all good room. Pizza place near by. Ocean view from upper rooms. Not far from anything. Parking was free. Keep up the good work Clarion Management!

Room Tip: Ask for room on the 18th floor. Nice view
