This is a decent place, there's nothing wrong with it. It's not the Ritz -- it's Clarion. Clean, comfortable, VERY nice staff, from reception to housekeeping. Here and there you can find a little peeling wallpaper or musty stairwell. It's no big deal. My son and I stayed two nights for a baseball event at Baseball Heaven. We got a... More

This review will be a bit long since I visited The Clarion twice this summer, both times following a wedding. Apparently it's on the vendor list for many of the local wedding venues. The first time was just to visit the bar for an after party, as many of the guests (including the wedding party) were staying there. Before entering... More

I've never stayed in such a dirty, creepy, poorly staffed establishment. From check in to check out, I have not one good thing to say about this place. First off, the place smelled terrible and contrary to the "non-smoking" signs, the place smelled like smoke. Woman at the front desk was rude and didn't even seem to care that her... More

Will never stay here again. Bed bugs and a less than pleasant staff. After being awakened at 2:30 am to find bed bugs crawling through the bed & pillows we moved to another room. Staff was annoyed that we asked for plastic bags to put our luggage and belongings into. I said "WE ARE NOT TAKING THESE CRITTERS HOME WITH... More

What a difference a year makes! Since the Clarion has taken over this property, the place has just gone down. Lobby appears to be the best cared for area of the hotel. We stayed to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. Front desk clerk was doodling on scrap paper when we arrived and we both had... More

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
