On sunday arrived in san diego and called the front desk of the Clarion Hotel for the shuttle service. Dora answered the call and asked for the arriving airline and told me right where I should be waiting. I was picked up on time and well greeted. Dora was friendly and informative. She asked how was my flight and what... More

Hotel was convenient to the freeway. If you are scared of heights this is not the hotel for you. The halls are outside. Room was clean and spacious. The street side is a little noisy, but we were able to sleep just fine. Good value.

Recently enjoyed an overnight stay at the Clarion. Courteous and professional welcome, comfortable clean room on 10th floor, and a view of the harbor with Naval ships in the distance. Had a great night's sleep, the desk was a productive workspace, and the easy chair was perfect for lounging. Parking was convenient and secure. Easy freeway access to the 805... More

I found the hotel in need of some serious spring cleaning. The bed spreads in our room had some mysterious white stains. The other bed spread had a cigarette burn, so much for paying for a smoke free room. The elevator looked like it had not been cleaned in years. The walls getting off the elevator on the sixth floor... More

This was a quick trip for me to a city I'd never stayed in, so I chose the Clarion based on other reviews. I wasn't disappointed. It's definitely not a 5 star by any stretch of the imagination, but the customer service was wonderfully helpful, friendly, interested in listening, and very quick with their shuttle service to/from. Victor picked me... More

Good location if you don't mind being close to a busy freeway. Also when we checked in reception was very busy. They forgot to give me my AAA discount. When I asked at checkout, receptionist gave me 2 breakfast passes. My companion had the buffet - disappointing. I had eggs, bacon & hashbrowns. The food wasn't bad but it was... More

Chose this hotel as they had an airport shuttle. They gladly will shuttle you within a five mile radius. Pleasantly surprised with excellent beds, clean room and great shower head. Dora very helpful at checkout. Looking forward to returning and highly recommend this property.
