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

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.
