I understand that hotels get older - I'm in development and construction and have been a part of many an overall on Marriott properties....but I'm not sure how Clarion allows this hotel to fly a clarion flag - there is NO redeeming quality about the place except staff and location. First off we were there for Baseball Hall of Fame... More

My family stayed at the Clarion in Oneonta, NY because my son was getting married in that area. The hotel was nice and clean but the thing that stood out the most was the hotel staff, most notably Val, Al and Jackie. We had many last minute room changes, rescheduling and last minute details. These were handled superbly and everyone... More

I stayed here for for one night during June 26th after attending Orientation at Oneonta college. I browsed around before choosing this hotel, but noticed Clarion had a decent price per night. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful and accommodating that day. I honestly never felt more welcomed at a hotel! I ended up with a king... More

The hotel exterior looks great. The rooms are outdated but clean/comfortable. The beds weren't that awesome but doable. Easy 25min ride to Cooperstown Dreams Park. Wish they had free breakfast. Hotel has an entrance onto the main downtown plaza. Very neat town.

We stayed one night and found the hotel to be clean and fairly comfortable. The rom was very large with an adjoining sitting area complete with desk and couch. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were too soft. Asked for harder foam pillow, but seemed to have only feathers (or very tired foam). The jetted tub/shower combination would be... More

We found our room very clean and comfortable. After a long drive and an afternoon visiting local museums and sites, all we wanted was a good place to eat and sleep. The staff at the restaurant was attentive, fast and pleasant. The food was brought quickly and was good as well. The only problem I found was the tub. It... More

This was one of the worst hotel experiences we have ever had. It finally will put me off all Choice Hotels except Comfort Suites. The hall ways and rooms are very dark, even with every light in the room on, it is very hard to even read. When you first open the door to your room you can smell the... More

I have enjoyed both of my recent stays at this hotel. Al was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean and the customer service was outstanding. The location is perfectly situated in the middle of town so that you can walk to local restaurants and shops. I will be staying there again the next time I visit my family.... More

I stayed two nights, the same two nights around SUNY Oneonta graduation (I was not there for graduation). The hotel was packed but the customer service remained outstanding--very helpful and accommodating. The location (right in the heart of downtown) was fantastic, complete with free parking. The room was comfortable and very clean. The reason for the average marks are the... More

My wife and I travel often, 4-6 nights each month. She loves Holiday Inn, I use Choice they are convenient to my kids. We've stayed at HI, Oneonta and they are no bad, cheaper than Clarion, but the HI in Cooperstown is beautiful and better priced. This time I visited with my brother. We come to watch our son compete... More
