“Descent Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The motel had friendly staff and the breakfast area was large with a nice breakfast being served. When we arrived, we were told that soup and salad was available at no charge for a light evening meal. Both were very good. The room was clean, however, some work needed to be done on the place. The door to the room was very unattractive, scuffed up and dirty looking. We had a descent stay here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stayed one night in this hotel on our way up the coast. It was an okay place to stay. We stayed on the ground floor, so we were able to park right outside our door and easily unload out luggage. Our room had a bit of a musty smell, so we opened the door and window to help air it out. Breakfast included as well as an evening snack (which we passed up).

we had 4 separate rooms reserved. Upon check in, I was put in a room on the 3rd floor and the other 3 rooms were on the 1st floor... we had called 2 months in advance to reserve the rooms all being together, so this was not acceptable. The ad for the Clarion reads "3:00pm Check in time guaranteed" but we had to wait for our rooms to be cleaned (not long... but still a wait). when I got into my room there was still old left over food in the fridge and some sort of crusty like "substance" dried on the television remote (I do NOT even want to know what it was) I took the food and remote to the front desk clerk who personally cleaned the remote and taped it back together again for the back was coming off. The curtains were ripped. We always check hotel beds for bugs... they were clean and clear... but the bedding was very old and worn out. The air conditioner would not adjust up or down. Indoor pool was nice! but very few tiny towels available. Some of us had to go without and make a fast run across the parking lot to the room to dry off. The printed information in the room ie: television channels list etc. were old and crumpled. The front desk man made a comment regarding "sending one of there most attractive housekeepers to the room" and another about "liking wild women", I am sure he was just trying to be social and fun... but it was inappropriate and not to be rude but there was no attractive staff...but that would not matter... efficiency and friendliness are what bring people back. The charge for the room safe is a little ridiculous! BE SURE TO HAVE THEM REMOVE THAT CHARGE at check out time.
on a positive note: the bathroom was roomy and nice, lots of hot water, the breakfast was a very nice addition. waffles, sausage, cereal, fruit, biscuit and gravy, juices... there was an attendant who was very efficient and kind about keeping everything cleaned and stocked. The hotel was close to other attractions in the town. I would say it was a little pricey for what you get... but all in all it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: if you don't use the safe, be sure they remove the charge

First let me start by saying this was the 4th hotel we've stayed in over our vacation so far. The last 2 nights have been garbage so this was a very nice change....weekend summer on the coast, everything was booked so we paid a hefty price for this hotel but it was worth it!

Upon arrival, front desk clerk super friendly and helpful! We had called ahead requesting rooms with 2 queens which was good because the hotel was full.

The bed was soft and comfy, clean room, a little dated but nice. Lots of channels for tv, which made my tired kids happy! We used the laundry facilities which were reasonably priced and clean! We had a fridge and microwave which is always nice. Breakfast was really surprising! Waffles, sausage, biscuits, fruit, boiled eggs, muffins and breads. Not gourmet but definitely much more than most! Lots of seating and attendant to keep things full and tables cleaned.

When checking out we asked if they had a Place to refill our water bottles, front desk lady went out if her way to accommodate us! Thank you thank you!

This is an area with few nice accommodations at ridiculous resort prices so be prepared to spend more for decent lodging.

Stayed for one night traveling from central CA to eastern OR, taking the beach route. Found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Indoor pool was very popular with the kids, after a long day in the car. Internet signal was strong, and morning breakfast was complete and very tasty. Didn't notice any of the concerns presented in prior reviews that were posted here. Outside is showing a little age, but I understand that, having lived in a beach community for many years. My main concern was the room condition, which was very good. A couple of items to mention to management. The automatic safe charge is a bad idea. I didn't get charged as I mentioned it at check-out, but I only knew to do this as I read the registration card completely. Also, not sure if a fridge and microwave are standard for Clarion Inns, but I was very surprised not to have one in our room. Would have been very handy, since I was traveling with kids. Still, overall, a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: If you are going to use the pool, as for a room near this part of the property. It gets very cool i...

Worst hotel. Paid $110. a night for an old room that smelled like the inside of a thrift shop. The layout was unworkable with no space around the sink for toiletries and a 1' wide closet. Even the shower rod was coming off the wall. My husband thought it looked like a poorly redone Motel 6. Final insult -- you're charge for your room safe whether you use it or not.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.

We pulled in to the parking lot/check in area about 8:30 pm and there was a male employee (in uniform) in front of the doors with 3 friends talking and smoking cigarettes. It didn't say "professionalism" or give us any confidence to stay there. We just kept on going.
