The hotel was excellent. Loved the Horizons restaurant. Wonderful staff. The only problem I had was my daughter left her medication in the room and when I called later in the evening that we had checked out to ask them to get it out for fear there might be children in the room I was told by a little girl...

You are absolutely correct; the first time you called you should have gotten immediate cooperation. I appreciate you looking out for other guests. I've made the front desk manager aware of this incident, and he will take appropriate actions to resolve this training issue. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope to welcome you back again soon. More

The rooms were ok. The customer service was lacking. There is no complimentary coffee in the lobby for guest in the a.'m. Something I thought every family type hotel did these days Also. When crowded you should know the excess parking is across a very busy highway! The elevators are very slow and crowded and not big enough to accommodate... More

I'm very sorry that we did not exceed your expectations on your recent visit. Regarding the parking, while it is across the highway, there is a crosswalk one block in each direction, which we encourage guests to use. We do hope you change your mind and visit with us again. Thank you for taking the time to post your review. More

Please accept my sincere apology for the incident involving the owner parking area. I can assure you my wife's intentions were not to make you feel as though you were beneath her. While the car was parked in an unauthorized spot, when I saw the guests carrying two children I told my wife to let them park there. I certainly... More

I stayed at this hotel last summer (June 2014) as part of a convention. When I drove up, I thought that the building looked a little run down and dated. But my room was very pleasant - clean with a view of the ocean and a little deck. The bed was very comfortable - allowed for a good night's sleep.... More

Hotel was great. We ate at beach front bar and grill every day for lunch. The breakfast buffet was very good and a fair price too. We had a few dinners at hotel and the food was very good there. Service was good except for last day. I think some employees were back to college and they were a little... More

I'm sorry that you experienced delays in the restaurant on your last day with us. You're correct in that some of our college students have returned to school, and we were slightly understaffed. I'm glad you didn't let that one incident overshadow the rest of your stay. Please come visit us again next year! More

We're certainly happy to hear that you had such a good stay at the Clarion Resort. The age for the hot tub is recommended by the manufacturer because children under the age of 16 have experienced skin sensitivity and other issues. We hope to see you the next time you visit Ocean City! More

We stayed for one week at the Clarion for our first Ocean City vacation. We were travelling with our little dog and there weren't many places that were dog-friendly. This hotel reserves one floor (the 5th floor) for the people with pets, and there is a little dog park on the property. Very convenient, and even provided free poop bags--too... More

We decided to stay at the Clarion as a last minute vacation because I am on crutches recovering from a dislocated knee. We picked the Clarion because they seemed to have everything right there and they do! Including a beach wheelchair for me to use thanks to John, the bellhop.
