Clarion Hotel PA664) is under renovation right now. it is an absolutely ridiculous money making idea which is they are still allowing guests to book through online. when I just entered, I felt nausea and headache. especially, our two kids were with us,so it was the worse choose ever. As a matter of fact, if a building under renovations, they... More

We arrived during the early evening to find that a lot of construction was going on in the hotel. Once we went into the side door to enter the hotel, we were given our room keys and part of the family went up the dirty, smelly staircase and the other half went in the elevator. Our room was alright. One... More

The hotel really should post on their site that they are under construction. Our room was ok, but the building is a mess. There are construction materials in the hallways, plastic hanging in the halls, plaster dust in the stairways. The check in desk is in a room, the entry is from the side. The public spaces are very large... More

I was in Pittsburgh visiting some family and basically needed a place to crash, not a hotel room to watch tv in or spend time in. When I approached the Clarion on a Friday afternoon, I was concerned that the hotel was closed...the parking lot was empty and the front was all torn up. I saw some signs saying they... More

Stayed over the St.Paddy day weekend. I must have gotten one of the newly renovated rooms. Had a flat screen T.V -Renovated bathroom & was very quiet. Yes they are renovating ,but you get what you are paying for. The Breakfast in the morning was on par with all the other Motels I have stayed at. Over-all quite satisfied.

I honestly wish I could write something positive about this property, unfortunately I cannot. I had a three day reservation and left after the first night. I would not have even stayed the first night except for the fact that it was almost midnight before I arrived and was simply too tired. I pulled into the parking lot and could... More

I am a Travel Agent who wanted someplace inexpensive and an easy location for a meeting I planned to attend the following day. I drove in from Dayton, Ohio which was a solid 4.5 hr drive. I arrived to the property and paid for my room. I went through four rooms of disgusting things before I demanded my money. I... More

Booked this hotel and was expecting a decent 3 star hotel and encountered a disgusting hotel. Arrived with no lights on in the parking lot, no cars in the parking lot (sign #1) and walked into the hotel to find there was no registration desk- just a make shift one in a room. The clerk seemed rude and disinterested at... More

I wrote a review on Jan. 22, 2014 and said the elevator smelled horrible and the outside lights were never on to see the name of the hotel. When I went back a few weeks later, the elevator smelled like 'potpourri heaven', the outside lights illuminated the front of the building. Hat's off to the manager for fixing problems. This... More

I was a little concerned about staying here after reading some of the other reviews. However, I can honestly say that since my expectations were low our stay at this hotel was acceptable and I got what I paid for! First the pros: The cost to stay here was around half the cost of the nearby Hampton Inn, so we... More
