Stayed one night with family on a visit to Quinnipiac University. We are a repeat guests and the hotel has definitely declined. The highlight is the staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The hotel is getting very tired. Not as clean as it used to be. Lobby is currently under renovation. Will try another hotel next time

Convenient to an event at Yale. Basic double room with a small sitting room. More like a regular room with a screen built around the sleeping area. Biggest problem was the lack of sound proofing. A party arrived around 11:30 pm, could hear the slamming doors and their conversation like they were inside my room. They finally settled down around... More

Stayed here last year and the place was fantastic. So much so that we decided to stay here again this past weekend. Apparently a drunk driven smashed into their entrance so it was boarded up. In order to get to the "front desk" we had to use the kitchen entrance. The front desk was just a simple table set up.... More

We liked the room we stayed in. The room was a 2 bed room and it was very spacious. It was clean and quiet. We would stay there again if we had to. It had a easy access for luggage and packages, since we had many because it was Christmas Eve.

Clarion is part of the Choice hotel chain, which are moderately priced hotels and motels. This is one of three hotels in the town of Hamden. I was here for a wedding at the nearby reception hall. The wedding party recommended we stay here so they could arrange a school bus for transportation to and from the wedding venue. That... More

I was there for one night. Won't stay again considering I came home with some bugs I didn't arrive with and had to change the sheets when I got there. Unfortunately there was a ton of the last person's body hair in it. Gross!! There was still hair in the sink and on the towels. This hotel is definitely overpriced... More

I read the reviews before booking here, so it was not a total surprise.There aren't a lot of choices in Hamden so here we are. Even though it is being remodeled, the hotel is not well maintained (don't look too closely at the showerhead...) The Internet is slow. The breakfast is mediocre. There are not enough outlets. Parking is out... More

Terrible room, terrible service. We booked this property on priceline, so had little choice, but had we not already paid up front, we would have turned around and paid more to go elsewhere. This is essentially an old, run down motel. Which might not be a problem if it were clean and friendly, but the room was so dirty that... More
