The place may be a little dated but it was a great place to stay for the night. The room was clean, the service was good, and the continental breakfast at Cortland's was great. I would definitely stay again if I were in the area.

Yuk, fleas, no elevator, smelly rooms, nasty towels, holes in bed linens. What more can I say? Clean it up or bulldoze it! I didn't even risk eating any food here. If the rooms are that filthy, I don't want to think what the kitchen must be like.

The overall satisfaction of this hotel was okay. It was a very large building over 600 rooms, but very easy to navigate. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and the staff everywhere was very friendly and helpful. There were a few issues, the outlets were rather hard to plug things into, the cords would either fall out on their own or... More

After four days of travel and staying in 2 hotels that made our family feel that there had to be absolute silence, which is not an easy feat for 4 kids. I cancelled our last booking and we decide to drive until we got tired. The Clarion hotel was easy to find and had great rates, so we decided to... More

This is a large property with lots of guest rooms in a multitude of wings. There is also an amusement center, and a pool. It's a large and a bit confusing place. First impressions: peeling paint on the exterior, tired-looking furnishings/carpet/trim in my room in the 500-series in the back wing. Cracked sink. Very pleasant staff. Maintenance man went out...
