I greatly appreciated the hotel staff who was very friendly, professional and helpful! The lobby was so warm and inviting. We found our room to be clean and very up to date. The next morning we enjoyed breakfast that the hotel provided. The sit down style dinning with a limited menu beyond satisfied us! Our stay was very pleasant and... More

My family met at this hotel for Christmas and were impressed by how wonderfully decorated the hotel was and how friendly the staff was! We rented a suite so our family could celebrate Christmas in our room -- with a great little electric fireplace:)) The breakfast buffet was awesome, but unfortunately, the restaurant was closed for the holiday -- as...

Front desk personnel were very nice and personable. We checked in early at noon and our room was ready! There were complimentary cookies at the front desk at well, they are no Doubletree, but it was a good welcome treat. Room was neat and clean, though I wish the bathroom door opened a different way (it bumps people if they... More

Reserved room here due to recommendations and the pool area. Immediately after check in on 12/6/14 we were told pool/hot tub would be closed until 10pm due to parties (feeding people in the pool area). Pool was opened at 10pm but guests were still sitting at tables directly next to hot tub. I needed water therapy after long drive in... More

While attending a conference which included a two night stay I was both impressed and distressed with this Choice property. Upon arrival I was impressed by the magnitude of this place in a relatively small town. The pool area was an open design with tables and soft chairs around the perimeter. My room was on the first floor with a... More

Clarion inn is the Only place I stay or refer to guests coming into garden city. They handled our holiday party professionally with no issues. The Restraunt and bar are good. A one stop shop. They also provide shuttle service should you wish not to drive. We will use clarion again !

I've stayed here twice, both times for business. It's not the newest hotel but they have been updating it both times I was there. I'd really like to bring my family next time as my kids would really love the pool. It has a really good breakfast I'm the restaurant that's complimentary with the room.
