Ignored the bad reviews and went ahead and booked it. Comparing it to the best western our friends stayed, it was way better. The people at the best western woke them up in the middle of the night to ask if the water was running. While my dad and I were sound asleep in our very comfy beds! 😁 Mainly,... More

Spent the weekend in Dunkirk for a reunion. The hotel itself is great, the rooms were spacious, and the mattresses were very comfortable. There is a safe in the room. You had a free breakfast every morning, and it had eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, toast, juice, breads, and coffee, There was more than enough, and they kept it stocked. There... More

Nice hotel that offers a wonderful view and access to the lake. Whether you are wanting to go out on a boat or enjoy a stroll along the beach. It is such a great place that all of the locals hang out there too.

This Clarion has become my home away from home. It is in a truly great location for summer fun on the lake. Plus, if you are there on a Thursday night, free concert on the Pier!

Nice and clean motel BUT we were told before we got there that they had a heated, outdoor pool. The pool was very cold. After a long drive we really wanted a place with a pool. We could not even get in it. Con 1. The internet was very poor. Could not get my work done. Con 2. If those... More

Abeautifulhotel on the lake. Marina outside windows, great patio to relax at, great rooms, great service. We stayed with a group of ball layers and all was good. The breakfast was very good with lots of variety including hot food. The restaurant had a great lunch menu that was affordable.

We picked this hotel because of the fitness room. It was not accessible because the staff could not open it with either the key card, or the key. As a cardiac rehab patient, this was the reason we chose this hotel. The lounge played music till 2 am -- even with industrial ear plugs, you could hear it. The information... More

We stayed here to break up the drive on the way to our family vacation destination. We originally tried to get a hotel out near the highway but they were all booked up so we reserved this one by default. Turned out to be some good luck disguised as bad luck! The hotel is a short drive into Dunkirk and... More

We have stayed at the Clarion over the years when visiting family and friends in WNY. We have also stayed at other hotels in the area. In the past, this hotel had become run down and dumpy, and we were not expecting much this time, but we still wanted to stay here because of the location and because the other... More

We had a great time. Check in was easy, the staff was helpful, room was clean. Our view was amazing. It was quiet the whole time, we even slept with the window open.
