Stayed recently as we had friends getting married there. First I have to comment how nice and wonderful the staff was. Anyone I had interacted with while here whether it be for the wedding or about my room, was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The bathroom is a little small and I noticed our... More

We were in need of lodging and chose this by the description and the pool. The pool was a great feature being within a fully enclosed inner courtyard and decorated with a tropical cabana theme which would be especially GREAT for a Winter visit. A nice tip is that the first floor rooms have access to the inner enclosed courtyard... More

At the end of a long day of driving, we stopped in Clarion based on an ad in a Room Saver magazine. We had a $79 rate for a room with 2 double beds. The room was average in size and had a fridge and microwave. The bathroom was a little small. There was a balcony overlooking an enclosed area... More

Not good value for the money. We paid more for this place than we did for another hotel in the same chain (Holiday Inn Express) and this place doesn't even give you a free breakfast, like Holiday Inn Express. The room needs updating too. The bed was comfortable though, and we slept well. The room was clean. Staff was okay.... More

Valued Guest, Thank you for taking time to write a review on Trip Advisor. I apologize that you feel you overpaid for your stay. You are correct, we do not offer a continental breakfast like a Holiday Inn Express. We are a full service hotel so you’ll find more amenities offered. We offer a convenient full service restaurant and lounge... More

We arrived shortly after midnight, very tired and just hoping for a good night's sleep. BUT, due to a dog barking in the room right next to us randomly throughout the night, this was a terrible stay! It was not posted visibly anywhere upon check-in that it is a pet friendly hotel. So very disappointed. Got up and knocked on... More

While traveling last weekend we booked a room at the Holiday Inn in Clarion, PA. Though the hotel was a bit dated....our room appeared nice until I lifted the sheets and looked at the mattress cover. That is where I saw what looked like a blood stain and rust stains and little black specks that smeared when I rubbed my... More

I inadvertently booked through 'Hotel Savings'- didn't know I wasn't talking to Holiday Inn. I ended up paying $36 in fees and spent $176 for a room there which I think is too expensive- would have been cheaper if I had just called the hotel directly. Be aware of who you are booking through. Hotel savings told me they were... 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
