Stayed the weekend for Nephew's Senior Recital at SUNY Fredonia. The hotel was clean and comfortable but the little things that just keep it from getting a five rating. Beds were comfortable, we had adjoining double queens. Bathroom had enough towels for four and more. Huge flat screen TV with satellite TV, most channels I've seen in any hotel. I... More

My husband and I brought our daughter to visit SUNY Fredonia this past weekend. I chose this hotel because it was right on Lake Erie and thought it might be fun to see it covered in snow and ice. We weren't disappointed!!! The room was nice enough nothing special but clean and it appeared to be recently renovated. The pool... More

The hotel is right on the water and the view is very pretty from the restaurant although I was not impressed with the food. It looks like it was a very nice hotel at one time but is in desperate need of some upgrading. The entrance from the parking lot by our room did not lock when shut and much... More

I stayed at the Clarion recently while in town for a funeral. The location is great, with views of Lake Erie out the back of the hotel (visible from the restaurant). The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were clean. Another positive was the fact that they do not skimp on towels - I stayed in the room with... More

Nice rooms, great continental breakfast, clean, good food. Have been coming here for a few years for an embroidery retreat. Easy access to the Thruway. Would be great in the summer with their outdoor pool and the views of Lake Erie. Indoor pool was really nice, too.

I have stayed at the hotel at least three times, while dropping off/picking up my son from SUNY Fredonia, and have always been pleased with the staff, the accommodations and the restaurant. It's a bit on the pricey side, but worth it when one considers the other options in the surrounding area.

We visited the Clarion's restaurant on 10/26/14 for the first time in ages. We were delighted with the menu offerings and the very reasonable prices, not to mentioin we had excellent service. Our only problem with the experience was that our wives both ordered the eggplant parm and while eating it they discovered that the eggplant was actually zucchini. Both... More

If you like boats, this hotel overlooks Dunkirk Harbor on Lake Erie. It has a small bar and a restaurant. The room I was in fine. The heat and air worked good in the room. The food served was fine, nothing really special. Overall the outside needs some sprucing up and cleaning, but the inside was clean. The staff was... More

From the point of view of our 10-year-old grandson, the hotel restaurant was top-notch. As the only early diners, we got the table with the best view of Lake Erie, the marina and gazebo. We drank from goblets of icy water, spread linen napkins on our laps and snapped pictures of one another. The waitress was sweet, prompt and candid... More

Tired, dirty and in desperate need of updating. I'm flabbergasted that they can get away with charging so much for the yucky rooms. And if you're looking for a place to "party," this isn't it. I couldn't believe how early the place rolled up on a 4th of July holiday weekend.

Dear Guest, It is unfortunate to hear that you were unsatisfied with your stay. We have done several things over the past few years to update the hotel and still are in a working progress to do more. We have re-done the bathrooms, put new carpets in all the rooms and hallways, we now have 40" Flat Screen LED TVs... More
