I took my sister to Michigan City for her 21st birthday. We stayed at the Clarion Inn and found lots of fun things to do for the weekend. The Inn staff was so helpful and made sure our stay was satisfying. I honestly thought everything was nice, clean, and enjoyable. Thanks to them the weekend was a success!

My guest & I have stay here twice. Both times I made reservations online I requested a king bed and both times we were given the dog friendly room with king bed. I don't know if that's the only room they have with a king bed or if because we use a military rate the hotel doesn't want to give... More

Stains on the whole ceiling, cigarette burn in the carpet, yellow stained tub, water damaged bubbling wall paper... Really? Furniture looks like it was dragged behind a truck and even things that could be clean (inside of the mini fridge) have food residue stuck to it). No price could make we stay here.

We stayed at the Clarion Inn the night before we caught the bus into O'Hare for a trip to NC. For some reason we were given a handicapped room, but it turned out to be just fine. The room was clean, and we can't think of a reason not to recommend it. The people at the front desk were very... More

Pleasantly surprised. Clean, fresh rooms, friendly staff (decided to change room location and was no problem). Great for families because there are pool side rooms and quiet rooms too. We would stay there again.

We arrived at the Clarion earlier than expected. I checked in at the front desk not really expecting to get into our room but low & behold, our room was ready so they let us in early.

The hotel appears very nice from the street. The lobby is clean and polished, the hallways are clean, and the open pool area gives the feel of a resort. However, half of the rooms in this hotel face outside, behind the building, like a seedy motel. We were given no indication of this when we booked the room. The room... More

We had a two standard bedroom which was clean & comfortable. They accept dogs but charge $25 for dogs under 50 lbs. and $50 for dogs over 50 lbs. TV selections were somewhat limited. Our room (107) opened onto the parking lot (we prefer opening onto an inside hall) but there was no security problem.

We went to Michigan City to ride in a cycling event in Three Oaks, Michigan. It was a short trip and made it a good choice, and significantly less expensive than the hotels across the Michigan border. The hotel was clean, and we had a room that opened to the parking. Very easy in and out with your bicycle. We... More
