Nice rooms. I may have rated it higher, but as another reviewer mentioned, the water was shut off the morning we checked out. Huge inconvenience for guests who would like to take showers, brush their teeth or use the toilet before checking out.

Hotel looks nice on outside. Inside is a bit shabby and smelled musty. Paid $150.00 for night and does not even include breakfast. The main problem was the water was shut off at 9 a.m. the morning of check out and we were not notified when making the reservation nor notified when we checked in the night before. When we... More

6/24/2014 I stayed there last weekend and was totally unimpressed. While the fist impression of the lobby was very nice, my over-all feeling was that this place needs a visit from "Hotel Impossible". The carpet is worn and or/dirty, the furniture is beaten up and in need of immediate replacement. I viewed several rooms and all had "garage sale" quality... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel, we had no reservations and are thrilled that we stopped. The young lady at the desk, Beatrix was wonderful and very welcoming! A true asset to the organization! The rooms were very clean and the buffet breakfast was better than expected. I would highly recommend this hotel. Beatrix was right on with... More

I have very mixed feelings about this place. My wife and I stayed here last year, and decided to give it another try. Very fancy-looking, Still the same musty smell as you walk in the lobby, and a behind-the-desk manager who doesn’t smile or provide eye-contact, sent up warning flags. He was somewhat redeemed by introducing himself by first name... More

Shepherdstown is a beautiful weekend destination and I visit several times a year. However, hotel choices are minimal and I decided to stay at the Clarion primarily because of the pool. First, the good news. The staff couldn't have been any nicer during my stay. Everyone from the front desk to the restaurant staff was extremely polite, professional and made... More

We wanted to believe that the Clarion name still meant above average. This location is average at best. While well kept, it is dated and in need of renovation. Their are more rules at the pool for things you can't do than what is permitted and it was cold. Breakfast buffet was modest in offerings but not in price. It... More

We decided to change hotels last minute due to the distance of the hotel we originally booked. We were visiting very dear friends and didn't realize the distance when booking. They suggested this hotel and we were glad they did. Tucked in a residential section, this hotel is beautifully kept. Ample parking and groomed grounds. It's an older hotel but... More

We stayed at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center at Shepherdstown, WV, in early April 2014, while attending a conference in Shepherd University, which is 10 mins drive away. The hotel is newer and is well-maintained. Check-in was a breeze, staff were friendly. Hotel room on the 4th floor was average in size, with 2 queen-sized beds that were clean,... More

Great location for government employees! The town of Shepherdstown is a treat! With some great restaurants and bars. Music at the hardware store on a Thursday is a must see. Loads of civil war sites within no distance of the hotel. It's a nice hotel in a great location, makes traveling for work just a little more bearable.

We are happy to hear that you were able to see what Shepherdstown has to offer - it's a hidden gem! The Thursday Night Jam session at O'Hurley's General Store is definitely a favorite of ours as well. Hope to see you again soon! More
