We have stopped at this Holiday Inn twice on the way to visit our son & grandkids in New jersey. It's located right off Rt. 80 in Clarion, Pa.. Jim, the host, has helped us on both visits and he is a pleasure to interact with. He is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and they have a... More

The entire process from making a reservation to checking-out was above average. The front desk, restaurant/bar, and housekeeping service were all very good. The fitness center and pool facilities used were inviting and welcoming. No problems were encountered during my visit. The hotel is a one-stop location with all the amenities offered on-site. Locally, the hotel is centrally located to... More

After check in and providing my credit card, I was informed of a high school dance and asked to sign a release concerning the noise and that I could not request a refund.

I apologize for the noise issue during your recent stay, Our front desk had no intention of trapping you in our courtyard and should have better communicated to you in regards to the function going on. Although many guests enjoy our indoor courtyard for both the atmosphere, indoor pool and function space, we did a poor job during your stay... More

I booked this room earlier in the week as part of a (long) road trip. I left my house at 1:30am this morning and checked in at 4:30 pm. I was impressed when I first walked in and lobby looked neat and the staff was friendly. As I was checking in (AFTER I had already handed over my credit card)... More

The hotel is easy access off I-80 with good food choices nearby. We used the highway coupon book and compared locations using Trip Advisor. Rooms are clean and the staff are very friendly. A good spot for a quick overnight for the weary road traveler.

Small rooms and noisy AC made for not-so-nice experience. The AC sounded like a busted bathroom exhaust. Tried wedging the free granola bar into the vent to quiet it and got some relief. Glad for the free granola bar. Bed sheets were itchy and honestly not very clean either. Found some trash tucked away behind the bedside table. The rooms... More

This is an old hotel, probably an early holidome, that needs another renovation. Yes, the carpets are dirty and there is no hot tub by the quite cold pool.

This hotel was not on par with what I have come to expect from IHG properties. The staff was friendly, but the facility was not up to IHG standards, The carpets were dirty and the hallways had a bad odor. It smelled as if the sewage system was venting into the hallway.
