The first thing we saw when pulling up to the hotel was a messy facade, with sign hanging from a vinyl banner, and a large sheet of plywood with "Temp. Lobby ->" spray painted on it. This did not match the photos I had seen online, and was not inviting in the least. The parking lot was very messy, with... More

In all my years of travelling, I have never stayed in a worse hotel. AWFUL! The hotel is undergoing a renovation. I checked in with my daughter as we were on college visits, thinking Clarion is a respectable brand, well this hotel was/is deplorable!!! It was late by the time we arrived and were exhausted, so we really did not... More

I would give this a half star out of 5 if possible. Worst experience ever.The hallways and elevators had a very strong stench of alcohol and the elevator had many alcohol spills that remained uncleaned. The 4 flights of stairs I took to get to my room also reeked of the smell. My room did not even have its number... More

I have utilized this facility on separate occasions. Once in June for a single evening, once in July for two nights in two different rooms. I reserved the room for the family of my wife, who is undergoing treatment for end stage cancer at UPMC, some 8 miles away in the city. I learned that Clarion had some sort of... More

After reading all the reviews, I was really trying to be optimistic. We had two rooms and it was only going to be one night. Before I could make it into my room, my brother turns around out of his room and announces that we are absolutely not staying here. He did not even let his family into that room.... More

Now I stayed here for my bachelorette party night. When we checked in, they have the temporary registration office. We knew there were going to be problems since the hotel is undergoing renovations. Check in was good, and the staff was friendly. When walking through the halls, the doors do look pretty bad. Some had tap with the number written... More

The room was excellent-very clean and the beds were nice and comfy.the bathroom was remodeled and enjoyed the decor.The motel is in shambles due to renovations but we enjoyed the stay and the breakfast was hot and good selection.We will stay again as price was good for only 15 min taxi ride to downtown.

Driving up to the hotel we wondered if it was even open because there's a full dumpster and windows boarded up at the entrance. The hallway smelled like smoke and room was not worth $100 a night. The bathroom looked somewhat renovated but the plug didn't work and there were stains in the bathtub. The carpets were wet-not "mildly damp"-soaking... More

I have read a lot of negative reviews for this Hotel. Yes, it is under renovation. The lobby was closed and we checked in what appeared to be a back office. It is not pretty at the moment. However, the staff was very attentive. Our room was quite nice and appeared to be recently updated. The only complain was the... More

We stayed 3 nights and my feelings are mixed. Room was large and clean but they never finished painting. if you opened the curtains there was a small space in front of the windows that wasn't finished and the walls were still the old color, maybe they are coming back to finish later? The hallway smelled like paint fumes and... More
