Just returned from a quilting retreat at the Clarion. The staff were friendly, could not have been more helpful. The facility was beautiful, very clean and obviously well cared for. We ate all our meals in the Horizon Restaurant. The food was great, plentiful and delicious. My room was perfect. Everything I needed for a multiple day staff and a... More

Husband and I just came back from a weekend in OC for our Anniversaary. This was our first time staying at the Clarion. We have stayed many other places there, Condos and Hotels alike. It's a very nice hotel, but ... Our room was a little sparse with furniture. Just one very little chair. Since we reserved a King size... More

We also have 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites in the building next door that may meet your needs and expectation more. I hope you will consider staying in one of... More

The rooms are well appointed and in very good condition. Microwave and refrigerator, full size couch, free internet, all things you expect in a first class hotel. What makes this place special is the staff. We've been coming here for years and some of the staff have been here over twenty years. In the hospitality industry that says a lot... More

I was in town for a conference on Valentine's Day weekend. Normally I stay in the condos but I waited too late to make reservations so I stayed in the hotel. The room was very nice! It came with a microwave and a small fridge. I put both of them to work! The checkin is always nice and I know... More

Saturday night was definitely date night that weekend! I apologize for the delay with the crab legs; it was the buffet's first weekend back, and we were training new food runners. I'm glad you were pleased overall, and that seemed to be the general consensus that night. Also, we did have an issue in the Business Center that weekend. There... More

I'll begin by saying our visit wasn't under good circumstances. We live in Ocean City and the pipes in our rental condo burst. The condo was flooded and we lost most of our stuff. We have a dog and there are limited hotels in Ocean City that allow pets, The Clarion is one of them so we checked in. I... More

Room was dusty but other than that clean. I kind of expected nicer room. And only had business cable which upset my husband because couldnt get oc resort channel. Tad bit expensive and only had side view of ocean. Front desk was very warm and welcoming.

I'm sorry that we failed to exceed your expectations. I'm not sure what you mean by business cable, but we have a wide variety of cable channels, including HBO, and definitely the resort channel. We would have been happy to send someone up to look at it, and bring in another unit if necessary. All of our views are side... More

Room was good, amenities were good, balcony was eh but all rooms have view of the ocean. Think would be better if they didn't allow pets. Hotel and room had faint wet dog smell. Not sure if pets are just allowed in some rooms or all. We are dog lovers but not in our hotel.

We appreciate your comments regarding your stay with us. We do allow pets, but they are limited to just two floors. I apologize if there was an odor, that's very unusual, especially for our common areas. Please come back and visit with us again soon! More

We stay at the Clarion at least once a year, usually in January/February. We love the beach when there are fewer people in town. The improvements made to the facility over the past two years are noticeable and appreciated. Two weeks ago the carpet in the hallway on the Terrace (restaurant/conference center) floor was being replaced with beautiful ceramic tiles.... More
