We went to a concert at APG and picked this hotel because it was close, looked nice in the pictures, was near restaurants, and Clarion's are usually decent to nice. Never again! They did not have our reservation made through Choice Privileges. When I got home, I went back to view my online confirmation and it was correct. There were... More

I am sorry that you had issues during your stay with us. Particularly, the housekeeping issues that you mentioned. If given the chance, we would have been more than happy to remedy the problems in an expedious manner. I am also sorry that you were not able to find a parking spot closer to the hotel entrance. It is true... More

I stayed here with my husband and toddler the room seemed clean and the front desk staff was night but I woke up the next morning with bed bug bites all over my back and chest. I would not recommend staying here. The itching is not worth it.

When the guest reported the issue, we immediately inspected the room and found no evidence of bed bugs. The day after the issue, our professional pest control company inspected the room and did not find any evidence of bed bugs. More

I would definitely stay here again. The rooms were clean and the staff was quite adequate (friendly and easy to talk with). My wife and I loved the complimentary breakfast at the in-house restaurant and the in-house night club had reasonable prices with a great bar staff. All in all, a great bargain!

I was stranded in this hotel due to record setting blizzards. I had the misfortune of relying on stays at other Clarion Hotels and Choice hotels and the positive experiences I had with them. During my stay I had to clean ants out of my bathroom myself, they did give me the bug spray and spray soap and towels to... More

No restrictions, no fees. A friend and I had four dogs in one room - 2 husky mixes, a standard poodle, and a Bernese Mountain Dog Mix. The Standard was the smallest, but only because she was a puppy.

This hotel offers full service at per deim rates for rooms and food / beverage. Only 2 miles from APG base gate. BEST of all, they give a $25.00 day coupon for food and beverage in their restaurant and bar.....can't beat that! Meeting space is comfortable as well

I didnt have any of the issues experienced by any other travelers. The building is definitely older, but it has had what appears to be a relatively recent refresh of the guest rooms. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I had no problems checking in. The hotel does allow pets (complete with a bowl of doggie biscuits... More

Forget this hotel if you enjoy relaxing with online gaming. It is BLOCKED by this hotel which effectively blocks any VPN connections also. So a business traveller could not do any work with their parent company here either. Otherwise the rooms were decent and being a smoker the room I stayed in did not have an overpowering deodorizer smell like... More

We appreciate receiving feedback from our guests as we strive to improve our services on a continual basis. When you stayed with us in October, we had been limiting the amount of bandwidth to our guest rooms so that we could provide the best connectivity to the rooms. The gaming program that you were trying to run was very intensive... More

Outside appearance was fine. Rooms were not clean. Dust in the corners. Bathrooms were dirty. Breakfast that was included with the room charge was not edible. Scrambled eggs were hard and turning orange around the edges. Home Fries did not taste right. pastries and doughnuts were stale.

We stayed here at the end of June for a family wedding and I would highly recommend that anyone looking for a hotel in Aberdeen keep on looking. As a family of 5, it is very difficult to find a hotel nowadays that will allow us all in one room - with a rollaway or not. I'd be happy to... More
