My son lives in Garden City and I have stayed in 3 different hotels there. By far, my favorites are the Clarion and Sleep Inn. The Clarion is very clean and comfortable, and I stay there over the Sleep Inn when I want a pool. Otherwise, they are right next door to each other and I would highly recommend both.... More

We stayed here as part of a wedding party, the event was held at the hotel. Our room had no air conditioning, when we called someone came and looked at the unit to trouble shoot, then said they would contact maintenance. We did not hear anything further. After the reception we came back and it was not fixed, we called... More

Just returned from staying four nights at the Clarion Inn. The breakfast is wonderful and the beds are super comfy. Overall it was a great place to stay. However, just a few quirky issues. We had a room on the 2nd floor that faced the indoor pool. No natural light combined with only 3 lamps made the room very dark.... More

Nice, comfortable stay. Cool amenities including the pool and an awesome rooftop bar with a TV. Great food in the restaurant as well. Meeting facility worked well, too. You can't go wrong staying here if you are in SW Kansas. Looking forward to the owner opening a new property with an expanded water park.

I love the attached restaurant, free soup and salad for hotel guests. My favorite thing is that the beds are dangerously comfy. However the hotel is very outdated and there is not a lot nearby. This is forgivable since it's garden city ks. I also find the front desk to be unenthusiastic and rude... Not so forgiving.

I stayed at this property over Memorial Day weekend. I would definitely come back here during my next stay in Garden City. The hotel is in a great location just inside the bypass.

I'll admit that I wasn't expecting greatness in a Garden City hotel, but I was impressed with the Clarion. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable. The meeting rooms were well-suited for our meeting. Hotel has free wifi and the rate included evening refreshments and breakfast. Will stay again.

I stay here often when out of town for work. Very clean and neat rooms. Very comfortable beds, hard to get out of in the morning. Complimentary drinks in the evening. Very good bar and grill on site and very nice hot breakfast complimentary. I highly recommend.

Plesant accomodations, very good dining. Large King size bed granted me a relaxing night's sleep. I was traveling on business, the central locaiton of the hotel was very accomodating for my appointments. Armo Samy, General Manager, greeted me personally and made my stay quite worthwhile!

Got stuck in Garden City for the night due to weather (flying). Clarion offered a cheap rate when we first arrived but then increased it by $10 when we got the final bill. Still not a big deal. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Coffee in the lobby was definitely nice to have. Didn't really check out the pool during the... More
