I stayed here with my husband and 4 kids. The room had 2 double beds and a sleep sofa so everyone had space. The facilities and room were clean and I had no problems. However, we did notice the toilet bowl wasn't flushing when we arrived but we called the front desk and maintenance came up shortly after and fixed... More

Both the indoor and outdoor pools were warm and the food at the hotel restaurant was very good. The buffet had a lot of variety and was tasty. The extensive wine list is a rarity at a hotel restaurant.

This is our go-to place to stay in OC. We love that you can drink on the beach and love that the food and drinks (love the buckets of fun!) are pretty tasty from the beach bar and grill for lunch. The rooms are nice, the location is great if you want to escape all the boardwalk madness. I will... More

I always enjoy staying at the Clarion. Once you park your car, you don't have to leave, because everything is there. Pools, Ocean, Bars, Restaurants, Bands and a lot of Children's activities. Crab Imperial I feel is the Best.

My family and I stayed at the Hotel for one of the kids Dance Competitions. Very disappointed! It took us until Wednesday to get a key card to work for the door lock. (changed it 3X) Other family's had similar problems. The restaurant at the beach bar was the worst. Had to wait 90 minutes for French fries and a... More

I'm very sorry that we failed to meet your expectations during your stay at our hotel. I would like to let you know that we are in the midst of ongoing renovations. A little over 1/3 of our rooms have been refreshed, and we plan on having the rest of them done in the next off season. As for parking,... More

I have stayed here for the last ten years, and the hotel has adapted very well to conference goers. Since I don't hang out on the balcony, I value the fact that, though it is about 16 stories tall, it is still easy to get in and out to the pool, the beach, or the town. The pool is indoors... More

We stayed here at the end of June (kids, my mom and dog) for 3 nights. We were on the pet floor so did have the AC system view but could see the Ocean from our room. We were surprised at how quiet it was and had no issues with other dogs. People were very accommodating of our dog. There... More

A large group of friends have visited Ocean City, MD every Superbowl weekend for over a decade. The occasion is mostly for a conference at this hotel, but a significant aspect is fellow-shipping. Since we rent suites at both this hotel and the adjacent Marigot, we get to enjoy both. I've already reviewed the Marigot, so this is more about... More

Please Beware before staying at this hotel! I wish someone had warned our family before paying the amount of money we paid to stay here.

We appreciate your post. I sincerely apologize that you weren't happy with your accommodations. I believe there must be a misunderstanding regarding the view. I'm assuming that you may have brought a pet with you, and our guests with pets are housed on the lower floors, so some of them do not have the same views that higher floors have.... More
