My wife and I stayed here while passing through the area as we headed to niagara falls. This hotel is in serious need of a facelift. The rooms are dated and need some tlc. The room was decent enough just 80's style paintings and furniture

This hotel is is located right on the Lake. Very lovely location. However, I can't recommend this hotel. It is poorly maintained. Staff was fine, but hotel is in need of update. Rooms doors do not close behind you. I visited the area for business with 2 other colleagues and they each confirmed the following list: 1. Stained flooring 2.... More

We stopped in late one evening to book a room without reservations. Upon check-in, I had some concerns about getting a room that overlooked my snowmobile trailer. Somehow we left home without the trailer locks and I was a little concerned about security. Angel, the employee at the front desk was just fantastic. She arranged a room for us that... More

This hotel has tons of potential- it's too bad owners are letting it go. Location is excellent- lakefront and next to a boardwalk. I bet it's beautiful in the summer. Unfortunately, we had a lakeview room of the frozen lake. The rooms are bad. Our room looked like something from the 90's. Heaters were loud and walls were paper thin.... More

It's been the same old tired exercise area for decades. FINALLY there are immediate plans to renovate. This is good news. I hope it's more than just "carpet" and fresh paint. Maybe it will see increased usage when it is cleaner and more inviting.

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
