Upon check-in, we were upgraded, no cost, to an available larger room, which was really to our advantage, because our second day there we were snowed in. Very cozy and comfortable...good breakfast, and a nice Asian fusion restaurant on premises. Short walk to a 7-11 across the street, and not to far down the road was a strip mall with... More

We were attending the Horse Bowl Competition held at the University of Maryland. The location to the University was very close. The staff was very friendly. Our room was clean, and we had a great two nights of sleep. The homemade waffles were great. We are coming back in June for another weekend.

The hotel offers excellent customer service. Front Desk is extremely helpful. We asked for a room with Microwave and mini fridge, but our room did not have what was requested. Front desk solve problems immediately. Room and bath room are really clean. The hotel condition, however, was not as good as expected. Room was small. As you walked in the... More

We stayed over here in February and had to extend our trip during the snow storm. If it was any regular hotel my kids would have been really bored and would have made me crazy. Thank god for the Indoor Pool and games. We had a great stay, the staff is really nice and takes good care of you. Also... More

I've read the other reviews and I do agree that the setting were less than pristine, they were no worse that I would expect from an economy motel. I was very satisfied with the heated pool and the small, but adequate, work-out center. I was most impressed, however, with the service we received. Within minutes after entering our room, I... More

The hotel is low priced and the staff are very helpful, however it doesn't compensate for the conditions. I've stayed at the Clarion quite a few times recently because of the distance of my new job and I always find myself feeling uncomfortable. Mostly, it's because of the smelly parking lot that always seems to have a stream of stinky... More

Went with a group of 82 people (yes eight two) We had a great trip and everything was done as I had requested them. I wanted to extend my sincere thanks to the sales staff, front desk and the kind lady at the breakfast area for their help and cooperation. We appreciate it. Thanks again.

It is now past 2:30am I have called the front desk many times, they do not care about the hotel guests experience, the restaurant music is loud and can be heard over the television, I have had it with this hotel, I will never stay here again

This place needs better management just to start the work of improving the quality of stay. My reservation was based more on the photos and description, but when I arrived through the doors leading to the bar, there were only holes where the door locks belonged. The carpet was filthy all the way to the front desk. The front desk... More

We needed a place to stay in College Park to pick up our son at UMD and break up a two-day drive from Boston to North Carolina for Thanksgiving. This hotel was very convenient. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, breakfast was adequate and check-in and out was easy. Great value for the money.
