My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights just last week and this will probably our last stay at this hotel. Staff were unfriendly, unapproachable.. for the number of times we pass by the lobby, staff were just staring at us giving us a bad look.

This is an ex-Radisson an has been nicely updated. The rooms were very clean with nice white linens. Front desk staff was very friendly and check in was quick and easy. Nice proximity to downtown right on the TRANS Canada highway. I was pleasantly surprised as I had stayed here when the property was a broken down worn out Radisson

This was our third and final stay in this hotel. We've watched the Clarion decline over the past three years. Upon entering, the lobby looks very inviting. The greeting staff were very friendly and efficient. Our first room had a musty dirty odor and the air conditioning sounded like an old steam engine. The staff were understanding and quickly changed... More

We stayed in 5 different lodging facilities while in Canada. This was by far the most expensive and the most disappointing. Don't waste your hard earned cash on this place. Once you get past the lobby the hotel is extremely outdated. Our room had mildew in the shower and hairs in the sink and shower. Because I had an extra... More

After staying at the Clarion for four nights, I was very pleased to fund that despite it's age, the hotel is very clean and well maintained.

We stayed at the Clarion over Christmas and it was quite a nice stay. The staff were friendly, the room was nice and location good.
