If it was not for the cars in the pot-hole ridden parking lot - you would think this building was abandoned. The exterior of the building is awful. The interior smells. The stairwells smell so bad that you have to hold your nose as you walk up the steps to your floor. Then they have hotel rooms being used as... More

This used to be a very good hotel and everyone visiting used to stay here. Over time, renovations needed have not been done and the bar used to be a great social club that was crowded. All that is gone and few stay there.

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff came around each morning and were both friendly and helpful. The dining room was great. Our waitress advised us of the specials. Incidentally, the breakfast special was two eggs, pancakes toast and either sausage or bacon for under $4. It was tasty and they even ask you how you want everything cooked.... More

Recently stayed for a week attending a family reunion. I was very surprised by the cleanliness of the rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were VERY soft and fluffy. The staff was friendly and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Thursday was half price appetizers and I go a dozen excellent wings for $5.00. I... More

Just next to a Food Giant grocery store and a Subway so teams meals were easy to manage. The pool allow some sore rugby... More

This might be an old hotel but I had the best sleep I have had in months. Very comfortable beds. Bathrooms are very tight and aging but the bed made up that and more. Bartenders were very attentive and friendly. Can't say much for the restaurant...What an experience! I would recommend to anyone staying at the hotel to eat elsewhere.

I travel with friends and my dogs competing in agility and obedience and whenever the activity is at the PSI in Cheswick, PA we always stay at the Clarion in New Kensington. They are pet friendly, have a lovely pool, and the restaurant is above your average motel food. The staff is great, the rooms are clean, a good size,... More

Another business trip and if the choice were up to me I wouldn't stay at the Clarion Hotel in New Kensington, PA. I get the impression that it is a family run hotel and the front desk staff was not very professional. My room was on the upper floor (no elevator) and grouped with other rooms where there were "long... More
