Checked in late, after 9:00pm. Left by 5am. If my kid had not been practically asleep in the car, I would never have stayed even 8 hours. Checked in with a reservation that was made earlier, too late for refund. Got to room, down a filthy hall, and the bathroom door was locked. No worries, the front desk clerk said... More

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and had a decent time. Yes, they are undergoing renovations so there's the smell of paint, and the side doors were left open (security issue) for the workers. Also, please be aware that although there are two floors, there is no elevator. The caulk in the tub in my room needed to... More

We were attending a relative's wedding in downtown Boston - all downtown hotels are in the range of $200 plus per night plus $30 a day to park your vehicle. I am a Choice Privilege's member and this hotel had the least expensive rate of any property in the area - $105 per night with breakfast for two. Positive's 1)... More

I am sorry that you had a terrible stay with us. We try very hard to accommodate all early arrivals but unfortunately we can not always check people in early. As for cancelling your reservation we do have a 24 hour prior to arrival cancellation policy in place and that is why we were unable to honor your request for... More

I took the exit for the street the Clarion Inn was on. I saw a huge sign on top of a building on the left. After going down a long access road, I discovered it wasn't the entrance for the Inn. I almost took the next driveway, but skipped it and took the third left instead. I drove to the... More

We stayed here for the night because everyone else was pretty much booked this weekend. Normally I would not even call a Clarion, I always thought they were expensive and fancy. So this place is expensive, but not fancy. I give credit that the beds were comfy, bathroom was clean. The room we got could use a vacuum run over... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that we were not up to par with your room, we are in the mist of renovating and the two color paint is the way the new rooms will look when done. More

I really want to be fair here and I will be. Nevermind that I am sitting here in a stuffy room and the air conditioner is not working! I called the desk and asked what could be done.

I had booked this hotel since my trip to Boston clashed with the marathon and all major hotels were sold out. This place is ideal for those on a budget. The location may not be convenient for those needing to commute to Boston downtown. The rooms and facilities are average to say the least and it is not wise to... More
