This is a very dated hotel in need of a major renovation project. Handicap rooms were small with no room for wheelchairs or walkers. Bathroom had very short toilets, making it difficult for an older person with disabilities. Carpets were so dirty, it looked like they have not been changed for 30 years. There are not very many hotel options... More

I read reviews before we stayed here regarding the breakfast buffet but I did it anyways..bad idea and waste of money!!! The scrambled eggs were rubber, the bacon was hard, bananas looked gray ..they should not be charging for breakfast!! Free continental breakfasts that I've had are way better. The room was nice, bathroom tiny and loud air conditioner. The... More

This hotel was just an add on to our weekend. Our room was really nice and clean, but no microwave. Internet is nonexistent there, but that seems to be Baraboo anywhere you go. The workout room was dismal with no dumbbells, so I made due without. The coolest part was the pool, except the kids didn't get to swim, but... More

My wife and I had a get away for our 40th wedding anniversary. Our room was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Free high speed internet was advertised but when I tried to log on it would charge $3.00 for connection. I too was disappointed with the breakfast. When we checked in we were given coupons for $2.00... More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times in recent years and always appreciated the fact that a free breakfast buffet was included in the price of the room. Upon checking in this time (June 2014) I was shocked to be told that breakfast now was $6.99, though a $2-off coupon was provided. Even worse, it turned out... More

As a long standing member of Choice Hotels I was very pleased with the room we had but totally dismayed by the restaurant and breakfast options. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and while the food was okay, it was not worth the price and certainly not the quality you would expect from the quality of the establishment. I... More

Not a bad place, but don't expect a lot of frills. Room was decent sized. The pool area was good. The steam room was a nice surprise too. It's an older hotel and not upscale. Know this going in and you will be pleased. There is a decent restaurant on site too.

This hotel was alright. Not the best and not the worst. I liked the price... Not 100 to 200 dollars per night. The location was in close proximity to restaurants, and popular attractions in Baraboo, such as, Circus World Museum; The Al Ringling House; The Al Ringling Theater; The International Crane Foundation; The Mid-Continent Railway Museum. As for the hotel,... More

We find the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center a very clean and comfortable place to stay! Rooms are very good size, with plenty of accessible outlets to plug in our cells and computers. TVs are LG flat screens and there are more channels available than we've ever seen in our hotel stays! Our only disappointment is that there is no... More
