I've stayed here before and I didn't recall the rooms being so outdated. This place is pretty on the outside, and the lobby is fancy, but the rooms are lacking. There were CHUNKS of wood missing from the bedside table. The wifi was abysmally slow. Continental breakfast costs $11. As a conference center, it's also always overrun by people. And... More

This is a fine hotel outside Shepherdstown. I was here for a conference, and there don't seem many other options in the area if you are visiting. It is quite nice, but the problem is that there is an odd lack of focus on the details that makes a stay first rate. Check in was slow but congenial. I had... More

My best friend and I came to Shepherdstown for an overnight girls' excursion. The area is quaint and the dining options are tremendous. This was the first time we had stayed somewhere other than the Bavarian Inn. The room was outdated but seemed clean enough, which is the most important element to me! The woman who greeted us at the... More

We had a very comfortable one night stay. The common areas were impressive, but not the room itself, which was a little worn. The room however was clean, we could adjust the heat to the desired temperature, and the bed was comfortable. We prize comfort above all else. There was a refrigerator, a microwave, a safe, two sinks (one outside... More

This was my third time to stay at the Clarion Hotel in Shepherdstown. The review I posted after my first visit was very positive, and there are still some positives to this hotel. However, I feel that, based on the room we had, they are in serious need of refurbishment. The positives: Comfortable bed and pillows Two easy chairs provided,... More

I had a two day conference at this hotel and was very pleased. My room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I had good wifi. The food for a large group of people buffet style was good (not great) and the bar was comfortable with a range of drinks. Staff were very friendly. I've been to several conference hotels in the...

The highlight of this hotel was the staff, who was very friendly anytime I encountered them at the front desk. Since they do not have a free breakfast, I went to the restaurant and asked if they could give me a bowl of cereal with milk and juice and got it for about $4. The room was pretty spacious, with...

While there are spaces at the entrance of the hotel that are reserved for our staff who frequently leave and return to the hotel several times a day, our hotel still offers approximately 330 free parking spaces to easily accommodate all of our guests. Space is available around the entire hotel offering many desirable options for our guests to park... More

The staff were all very friendly. The hotel was clean and our room was so relaxing. The Rumsey Tavern was on the premises and was delicious and the staff there was friendly as well. The books in the room listed the grille as open but we learned it had been closed for some time. The photos in the hallway of... More

The wall plaque at the hotel entrance says 1998, and it seems that the hotel hasn't been updated since. The property just feels tired and badly in need of a spa makeover. The thoughtful reception assistant assigned us a King room on the 3rd floor, away from a large group apparently in another part of the hotel. Our floor was... More

I went to training there last September. The room was fine and the service was very good. The food at the tavern was very good as well, especially the buffet night. I was impressed by the selection of seafood and meats. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but its not a Super 8 either. If I ever get back in the... More
