This historic hotel is reasonably priced and has a good restaurant and a great bar. If your looking for a nice dinner in a small town this fits the bill. From sandwiches to steaks the food is very good. If you would rather have some cocktails and great bar food the bar is lively and fun. Very nice wait staff... More

While this hotel is convenient, clean and offers good on-site services, the only reason they can charge the rates they do is because there's only one other hotel in town. But it is what it is. I think the beds are too firm for me, but it's always hit and miss with hotels anyway. The staff is friendly and the... More

A rare find in the small town of Clare Michigan. I had seen the hotel for very many years but never had the opportunity to stop until now. Wish I had not waited for so long. Built in the 20s and retaining a lot of the old time charm. Very nicely maintained with very helpful and cheery staff. There is... More

The beds were very firm and we're used to a nice supportive pillowtop. At least we didn't wake up with a backache. The sofa and chairs were like big pieces of solid foam, very uncomfortable. The side tables and cocktail tables were extremely worn. If you decide to have dinner in the restaurant, don't have the prime rib. The prime... More

The Doherty Hotel in Clare, Michigan is a old well established family run hotel. We stay there when we go on our golfing holiday and golf at The Pines, about 20 minutes away. The friendly and competent staff make our stay very enjoyable. We look forward to returning every year at the Canadian Thanksgiving time.

This is a hotel in the center of Clare. Clare is a quint little town where the famous "Cops and Donuts" is located, (catty corner across the street from the Doherty). There's an indoor pool at the Hotel with tables around for playing cards. My family and other guest were taking advantage of because of the chilly, rainy fall weather.... More

Had a comfortable stay, room was clean and adequate - had a small refrigerator in the room - no microwave, but I didn't need one. Hotel Restaurant was EXCELLENT! Staff was friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again and plan to. Did... More

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.
