What a great surprise the Doherty Hotel was! Staff was excellent and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. We go to Clare to use the bike trail and the staff was great about letting us bring our bikes into our room. Being downtown was super close to restaurants and things to do. We will certainly go back again and again.

Stayed two nights in new section of hotel. Had some problems with magnetic card at first. Room was clean, Bed was comfortable and hotel is centrally located. I would stay again. Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Bar prices a little higher than local bars but nice.

My wife and I were just at the Doherty for 3-nights on a Golfing package from July 6th - 9th 2014. The room was very clean. The food was excellent. The staff would go above and beyond. The pool area was very clean and the pool was like bath water. This was my 1st year going on this trip with... More

Really enjoyed my stay. We didn't have any hot water one night. The front desk sent someone up within five minutes and the problem was solved. The pool area looked nice and inviting. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff was awesome and we also enjoyed the restaurant. Can 't wait to go back again.

I stayed at the Doherty on a business trip. I was completely and utterly disappointed! I stayed in room 103 across from the pool, in what I was told was the "new" section of the hotel by staff. They did indicate that they did not use the rooms in the "old" part since they need renovations. I can say that... More

This hotel two weeks after staying there charged me $750 saying all three rooms where smoked in. Only one person out of the 7 smoke cigs and that is me and I went in my truck to do it. Tried calling and they hung up on me. They do this I think because they have no other customers to pay... More

The hotel could be a real piece of history if fixed up a little. It is a nice place to stay, staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate you with what you need. Its a little outdated but I enjoy staying here when I'm passing through.

Great time and great party. This was our second year in a row to attend the New Year's Eve bash. It was a lot of fun. The Sinclair's are a great band and know how to get the party rolling. The food was delicious. There could have been a better flow of the lines, something that they need to work... More

The Doherty has quite a a history, Purple Gang, hauntings, murals, a Buffet - a delicious BUFFET and all that that entails. If you don't like Buffets, don't bother complaining. Because it is awesome. Clare, MI is delightful and food is plentiful. Cops and Doughnuts is across the street. As is Whitehouse - an amazing diner. But for a lovely,... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last two years. The staff is very friendly. Rooms where just ok. This hotel could be a real gem if it was cared for more. It is sad that they do not make the updates so badly needed to make this a destination hotel in the center of Michigan. The rooms... More
