The hotel is in need of a few updates, but was overall comfortable for the price. The front desk staff was amazing. He knew the local area well and provided us with wonderful food recommendations. He was even so kind to provide us maps to our next destinations.

After the owner of the Percy Inn lost our reservation and booked us at the Clarion instead, we had to make the best of the weekend. Even though we were unable to get a room with a queen bed I have to say that the people at the Clarion really went out of their way to make us feel welcomed.... More

Another big storm ? Once again, I, an almost 74 year old partially disabled man, replete with oxygen machine, descended upon Don Testa and his staff at the Clarion, for safe refuge....and once again, they came through with flying colors...Don, Joe, and the rest of the staff made me feel safe and attended to, and the room and food were,...

I stayed here with a friend after attending a concert. We checked in at 11 p.m. And were given a late night rate. The staff was very friendly and the room was quite clean. Compared to a motel i stayed in that was twice as much, i was very pleased with my stay here. I would stay again.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, giant tv, lots of hot water. The pool is very nice with 2 sections, a square about 10' by 8' that goes to 5' deep is offset on a larger rectangle section about 15' by 10' that goes from 5' deep to 9' deep. It was clean, but...

The hotel was very inexpensive, but to some degree you get what you pay for, The front desk staff was very helpful. The room was on the small side, but ok. The heating and cooling was terrible. I felt like a human thermostat.. turning the heat on and off constantly. The choice was too hot or freezing. There were moments... More

We stay here once a year for three or four days to visit nearby family so we've come to know the Clarion well. Rooms are generous and clean and included a small refrigerator. We order special meals - not on the menu - from room service and they are always delicious with large portions. They allow pets. Indoor pool is... More
