This was a very convenient, well laid-out, convenient place to stay while visiting the Boston area. The staff was welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. We had excellent service. It was clean, quiet, everything we needed for resting from busy days in the city. Not hard to commute back and forth.

We were in town just for the night, we were leaving from Logan airport early the next morning. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, I thought it was a great deal for the price. Although the rooms were small, they had everything we needed for a quick night sleep and a hot shower the next morning. The... More

The hotel was being remodeled but rooms were still being rented. The carpet in our room was dirty, but the bed appeared to be clean. We were given a room that overlooked the waste bins, but if we strained forward we could catch a glimpse of the lake. The room was quiet because of low occupation. The remodeled areas were... More

I just read a bunch of reviews of Clarion Hotels and wish I had seen them sooner. This hotel was not even close to any other I have stayed in. I can't believe this place could have any good reviews. There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room and when we asked if we could change rooms we were... More

We stayed at the Clarion Inn this weekend. Amy and her staff were amazing. Every person greeted us with a smile and made sure we were happy and comfortable throughout our whole stay. Even though we live less then 10 miles away, the Clarion made us feel as if we were on vacation. Our room had a great view of... More

Older property in need of renovation, however building is under renovation. Staff was very accommodating and helpful . Property is convenient to Boston. Rates are reasonable compared to rest of hotels in Boston area which usually exceed 200.00.

I stayed here for 2.5 weeks a few years ago while visiting a friend. 4 of us had 2 rooms. The staff were lovely and really friendly. We were offered a nice buffet breakfast while we were there and made use of the bar area several times. We actually were there during a hurricane but we managed to keep power... More

I stayed here for 4 days while traveling for work in a lake view room. I couldn't be happier. The staff were exceptionally kind. I'd take them all back to Wisconsin if I could. The bad has live music on Thursdays in the lounge, and being a musician, I loved that.

This hotel was on the outskirts of Boston so was a lot more reasonably priced than staying in the heart of Boston. The rooms were very clean. We didn't have any problems with the free wifi. The parking was also free. We had a car so drove to the subway line and took a train into Boston. It was a... More
