I booked a room for two nights on priceline. For some reason, Priceline gave it 3 stars (that can't be true.) I found bugs on face towels. Also, the internet went down and never came back up. In the future, I will stick to Hampton Inn or similar well-run hotels...

Hotel is located near MacArthur airport in Mid Island. Day trip to the Hamptons was relaxed. Another day trip to Montauk easy and both are must sees on long island. Rooms were large and beds were comfortable. Pool was not open due to a maintenance problem. No free breakfast however if you are hungry there is a full breakfast buffet... More

We booked the Clarion, Ronkonkoma, NY specifically because it had a pool we could gather around as we were having a family reunion. The pool being open was reconfirmed the day before our arrival and we were assured it was. Upon check in there was a sign saying the pool was closed, "sorry for the inconvenience." All other local hotels... More

I was on Long Island from Florida for two weeks visiting family and friends. I chose the Clarion because it is near the airport and rooms at other hotels were scarce and quite expensive, although this was not cheap either. The room was clean and the staff was courteous and professional. The building is worn and has seen better days.... More

My husband and I needed a place to stay for a wedding and gave Clarion a try. For the price, it was very disappointing. We had a bad feeling starting at check-in; there was a long wait and the front desk staff was unfriendly. Our room was a long walk from the lobby and if I hadn't been w/ my... More

Stayed at this hotel while attending a friend's wedding reception. The rooms are clean and the room we stayed in was roomy. Bed was comfortable; hotel satisfied my needs. Overall, this hotel certainly served its purpose as a one-night stay.

We recently stayed at there for a local baseball tournament. While we were their, the pool had to be drained for some significant issues they were having, card key access doors into the rooms area were broken, ice machines didn't work, the place was dirty and friends walked into non-smoking rooms smelling of smoke and "cleaned" rooms that were filthy....

All I can say is we tried to get into our room and our key didnt work 2x finally saw our room and ckecked out. The rooms and halls have a stale smell. The rooms are run down. Clarion refunded out money. There are better hotels in the area.

Based on all of the previous reviews, I was very nervous about staying at this hotel, but I honestly had a great experience, far from any of the "filthiness" and "disgusting rooms" that have been described. First off, the staff was both very accommodating and friendly. While I had booked a standard room with two beds, upon walking in, I... More

I stayed there for 2 nights and both nights was an awful stay. My friend and I were on a little vacation from Canada. The first night we arrive we told the front desk that our WI-Fi connection was not working in our room and got rudely told that there was WIFI everywhere and that I was probably trying to... More
