I don't typically post reviews of hotels I stay at just for an overnight for work but I couldn't resist this one. It's important to understand that the Clarion is situated on a busy road packed with awful hotels one after another. So choices in this area are limited unless you want to go to Atlantic City which is a hassle for a work trip.
The Good: Check in was easy, fast and the young lady at the front desk was extremely pleasant.
Wifi was free and fast, the bathroom looked to be updated and the bed was very comfortable and I slept great.
The Bad: The curtains hang so far over the air conditioner that the air couldn't really circulate so I had to get out of bed and shove the curtain bottoms onto the shelf above the air conditioning unit. Breakfast was mediocre but the coffee was pretty bad--I stopped for some elsewhere when I left. The TV was of very poor quality so I had to turn the volume way up to hear it and then it was distorted--gave up on TV pretty quickly.
The Shabby: The credenza that had the TV on it was smashed on the bottom with wood chips around it (no bare feet there!). The desk chair was so worn out there were holes on the armrests and the stuffing was exposed. Also, there was a cable wire or electrical cord poorly wrapped around the divider to the small living area-kind of like someone forgot to drill a hole in the divider so they just ran it on the floor. It wasn't even tacked down--just loose on the floor.
Overall it was an ok place to get some sleep--could be nicer with a bit of effort I think--just edges into the acceptable category for me.
