I had my wedding at the Clarion Inn and Fundome. They lied to me and promised me things would go one way and the messed it up. I would never recommend ANY to have anything here. They double booked my reception hall so that we could not get in and set up at 10:00am as told. The served some food... More

My apologies to the guest for their experience here. The banquet and restaurant are separately leased out entities. When we received your complaint we worked with the management team of the restaurant and I believe that the complaint has been handled to the satisfaction of the guest. More

The Clarion Inn College Park has friendly staff who try hard but they just don't know what they are doing. My booking was messed up requiring a change from a smoking of room - which they refused to do initially ! The claimed shuttle service was almost never available and had no queuing system. Took 2 days to tell me... More

I came to do research at the National Archives. From the website, I was under the impression that the rooms had indoor access. I found that all of the king rooms are accessed from the parking lot. I arrived at midnight, and the first room I was assigned was on the ground level. About five men were hanging around right... More

Of about 11 htoels in a 21 day trip, this was the most expensive and in the bottom three for satisfaction. Some distance from DC I thought the price was high. there was a free shuttle to metro but it only operated part time - 0630-1030 and 1500-1900. To far to walk and bus service not great. Hotel was not... More

I stayed there while had some business with the University of Maryland. It is close by to it and I got a good discounted price. It is a very regular 3 or 2 star hotel. Not good rooms, not very clean, not new, not good service, and noisy. But had a good indoor swimming pool, good breakfast, good shuttle to... More

We stayed at the Clarion in College Park b/c it offered a day tour to Washington, DC. The front desk was very helpful in making our arrangements. Although the day of the tour there was a little misunderstanding as to who was to pay for the tour guide. But that was cleared up and we enjoyed our personal tour. We... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of April 2009. The location is nice and there are a number of restaurants within 1 mile of the hotel. It is very nice that the hotel offers a free shuttle to the College Park Metro station (which is about 2 miles away - not 5 blocks as another reviewer said).... More
