I stayed at this hotel with my son for a class trip. The bed was comfortable that is pretty much all I can say positive about this hotel. The website clearly states free internet and fitness center. I guess you can call the free wireless, the 3 routers they had for the 100+ students there on class trips. When you... More

Horrible service, manager was very condensing when complaining about service, cleaned my own room when it was not cleaned. Called the front desk twice and room still was not cleaned. Too much noise in hotel. Was not accommodating to me even though we were there with family reunio. Just a bad experience overall. Will never stay there again and will... More

The hotel is horrible, its old, rundown, no modern amenties ( refrig., microwave, or tv's). I could not believe you are charging so much money for such a rundown hotel, the company ought to be ashamed to call this a Clarion. I will never stay there again will tell everyone about how awful it was. I couldn't even sleep there,... More

I booked this hotel as it was a conveniently located and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, that is the only good thing I can say about it. There was a police car in front of the hotel when I arrived, and it had returned on the day I departed. The hotel design and decor had been intended as a 3 star, however... More

I happened to be in town for an event at the Gaylord National and due to budget restrictions was not able to afford the rooms there. I was a little worried about staying here after reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor but I can tell you that either something has changed in the last couple of months or maybe... More

Stayed here for two nights for a convention at the large convention center hotel nearby at the Harbor. Co-worked booked a block of rooms, so i stayed here. Due to our company's challenging and sometimes downright pitiful hotel budgets, I've become a master of hotel booking sites and usually stay in a 3.5 or 4-star for the same price paid... More

We were on a school trip to the D.C. area and stayed at this hotel for two nights. The rooms smelled like smoke at first, even though it was supposed to be a smoke free hotel. The air conditioners were not working the first 24 hours, and the rooms were just so-so. No fridge as most places have and really... More

We stayed at this hotel on a school trip with 48 kids and 5 chaperones. On the first night, we had to switch two rooms due to the bugs in the beds and on the walls. When we awoke the next morning, none of the three elevators were working and for the next two nights we had to walk down/up... More

Comfortable beds and friendly staff are the only perks found here. The furniture had ink marks all over them upon check-in and rather than take care of the problem maintenance/housekeeping said it would get wiped down after our stay. The high-speed internet did not work properly regardless what hour it was tried - hotel desk staff stated there were too... More
