The Clarion is a very nice hotel, very comfortable beds, very helpful front desk. The hotel is beautiful. We didn't get to use the pool as we were there for the Country Jam festival and there was also a baseball tournament going on and there were young kids all over the place. Nice kids - they just took up all... More

First night of our big family road trip. Decent stay, no complaints. Clean, comfortable, wifi worked well enough to keep the teenagers happy. Breakfast was a little disappointing compared to the hot breakfasts offered at many places. We'd stay here again.

Summer time rates tend to be higher, but booking directly with the hotel gives a better rate. The staff is great. They are a friendly bunch. The chain restaurant has some of the best pizzas in the area and accommodating personnel. Also the hotel is pet-friendly. Two things that may detract some folks would be the meager breakfast with an... More

We stayed in room 132 on 7/18/15 to attend a wedding in the area. At $136 for the night (King bed, inside room), it was the most expensive and yet least desirable room we'd had in awhile. The bathroom was musty - like the smell of an old, wet towel - and the shower curtain needed to be changed. Our... More

I flew with my 7 year old son into the local airport for the annual airshow and didn't want to fly back home the same day, so we asked at the airport for a hotel recommendation. They said the Clarion and that we could get a discounted rate and the hotel would pay for a round trip taxi to and... More

For Eau Claire, this is a good place to stay. The hotel is average, but that's not a bad thing. The room was clean, quiet and laid out nicely. The only objection to my room was the AC did not work very well; however, we had 3 rooms and the other 2 worked well. There is a pool and the... More

Had been traveling for over 13 hrs, got a ticket just outside town. Was tired and upset. The staff in the bar stayed open and gave me a drink, which allowed me to calm down and enjoy the rest of my night and following days events.

Checkin was fast & friendly. Room and pool area were both clean. The wireless internet was poor with significant packet loss. It was so frustrating that I gave up and used the hotspot capability on my mobile phone, which was much more reliable. In the morning, the internet service was marginally better, but still problematic. The selection at the continental... More

Stayed here on a Sunday night night in June. We were in Eau Claire for college orientation. We checked in around 5:45 and went right to our room. When we opened the door it was apparent that the room had not been serviced after the previous guests had checked out. Called down to the front desk and they solved the... More

First of all you should know this hotel has no elevator and the hallway is 2 blocks long from front to back. Keep this in mind if you have elderly staying here. Otherwise the place is clean, front desk staff were nice/polite. the breakfast was mostly a take and go, nothing hot. I stayed here because my first choice had... More
