Our family stayed at the Clarion for a mini Vacation , from the moment we walked through the doors until we left 3 days later, we were treated Awesome by every person in the hotel, From the Cleaning Staff, The Front Desk , the Breakfast attendants They were all great ! The pool was perfect for our young children .

The room ballroom was a great place to hold any event. The staff was great to work with - accommodating, helpful, pleasant. Georgene had great ideas and was there every step of the way to make sure our event went off perfect. Having everything accessable for our guests was a plus.

The hotel was definitely sub-par... The room smelled so much like smoke that I had to wash everything when I got home,there was white stuff on the floor, the toilet was broken, they didn't give me the internet code and when I tried to call to the front desk, the phone didn't work. The shades didn't close properly. The entire... More

I recently had to make a business trip to Minnesota. I stayed for 3 days and was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming reception I received as well as the accommodations I stayed in. The pool was clean and quiet and was extremely relaxing after a long journey. It is obviously not a new hotel and is slightly dated. With that... More

We have stayed at the Clarion because it is right down the hill from my brothers house after he became a little grumpy having us there every year (just kidding). The hotel is comfortable, dog friendly and yes a little dated and worn, but good service and always a smile.

I was not completely prepared to check-in to the Clarion and the front desk clerk made the process professional, routine, and unencumbering. The room was nice and a good value for the price. The pool area was not cluttered and was relaxing.
