Very comfortable place to stay for our one night stay. Only thing that keeps it from a 5 star rating is that for the cost, I am not sure why breakfast was not included. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

I don't know what's wrong with the people that are complaining about picky little things on here, they aren't staying at a luxury hotel. Clarion Inn is supposed to be the lower end of the choice Hotel chain, but, for the price, this is one of the nicest I have stayed in and I have stayed in over 100 hotel... More

Could use new comforter the one on bed was yellowed. Great breakfast area, Staff was helpful and very friendly. Spent 110 on room. Radison hotel... More

Using a discount website, got a room here for a good price. Do not pay full rate for this place. It is convenient to Star Plaza and the highways, but it is not a plush hotel. They had someone else in our room when we checked in. Fortunately, the desk clerk discovered it before we walked in on someone. Clean... More

We spent 1 night on our way through town. It was nice and mostly clean. My only (very minor) complaint is about some brown stuff on the desk when we walked in the room. It was apparently something that had blown out of the air conditioner. Bed was comfy. Nice to have fridge. Wish the TV had been bigger for... More

Got a very good deal using Express Deal on Priceline to stay a night at the Clarion Inn. Thank goodness for GPS, as the hotel was way back down a side road, past some construction, with no hotel sign to let you know you had arrived. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was nice and clean. The bed was... More

Stayed just one night; found deal on hotwire. The exterior was being repainted, which it desperately needed. The inside of the hotel could use some updating. Our room was small but quiet. The sofa sleeper was due to be retired as the hard metal coils were practically poking through and made for an uncomfortable nights sleep for my eleven year... More

We had traveled back from Green Bay on our way home from my husband bowling in the USBC Masters Tournament. We checked in fairly early, but the hotel was kind enough to let us check in. We asked them to put us in a quiet area because of the problems we had at other hotels and guests being loud and... More

All in all, a okay hotel if you just need a night or two in northwest Indiana. The hotel is VERY hard to find. It's located down a frontage road, past the Star Plaza Theatre, then, where you think the road dead ends, it's past that. It sorely lacks updates. The pool area looks like something from the 80s with... More
