The website and recent reviews doesn't do this place justice. While this isn't the Embassy Suites....It's a quaint hotel in a city that welcomes guests to Northern Michigan. The in-room TVs are not flat screens but if that's a big deal to you, stay at the Days Inn, jump back on the highway and head out of town on your... More

Everyone who ordered chicken, didn't eat it. The chicken was not cooked. The manager claimed it was cook to temp, but juices still ran pink. Does that look good. Toward the end of our Christmas dinner (business) we were offered a replacement dish. Everyone at my table chose to eat somewhere else on the way home. I wouldn't order any... More

I checked this hotel out before making the reservation as we would be traveling through Clare, MI, on our way home. The website pictures show it to be very quaint and interesting as it is quite old. When we got to our room....oh my gosh. The first thing we was was this old analog JVC television. When we watched it... More

My wife had business in Clare on a Friday and invited me to drive up with her from Grand Rapids the night before. She had reserved a room at the Doherty in advance for a little under eighty bucks. We arrived a little late, around 10 p.m., but there was a friendly young man on duty at the front desk... More

We decided to give the Doherty one more try after a bad experience in the bar area of the hotel. We ate in the dining room and the service and meal were back to the standard we have come to know at the Doherty. The meals were very good as was the salad bar. The homemade chicken rice soup was...

This non-flagged property gives you a very good value for the money. We were on a cross-state bicycle ride and chose the Doherty for our half-way stay. We will stay there again. Rooms in the older section are large and comfortable, if a bit outdated. Rates are commensurate, however. The restaurant is also moderately priced, and a hotel stay includes... More

We were visiting friends at the hotel. the rooms were clean and had lots of room. We dined here . The food was good and the service great. I would recommend this place if you are in the area. There is a donut shop near the hotel that has a bit of history about the area. Their donuts are great.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and found this hotel to be very nice. The rooms were quite large, quiet and clean and the beds comfortable. Prices were average for the area. It is right in downtown Clare. The pool was very neat and clean. It also has a large Jacuzzi. The best thing about our stay was... More

Hotel has the possibility to be great, but the room we had in the " new part" needed work. A/C did not work on high and was very noise on low. Room was uncomfortably warm. Notice that the wall coverings need repair/replace. Room decor was dared and tired . Definitely not a 1 st class place. Free breakfast was on... More
