“Don't go there!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had a reduction coupon of this place and they said it is not valid because they were sold out it was not true; a lot of rooms was available! So the owner of this place is not honest at all! The receptionist admit it but said he can't do nothing about it. We arrived and were exhausted, so we negotiated for 99.99 (they asked for 119.99 at first, with the coupon, it was supposted to be 69.99 with the coupon). The first room the gave us, the magnetic card was not working. They gave a second card; not working too! Then they gave me a third card for a new room. The alley to go at the second room was incredibly warm because all the outlets of the conditionned air go there. The magnetic card did'nt work again, so, a guy game and use a kind of twist of the hand to open it. The room was not clean; there were traces of fingers path everywhere (on the door, the glass etc)! A lot of people outside in the alley that seem's to pass their time to look at the new tourist, and don't seem to be very "clean" too. I slept without using the sheet of the bed because I was afraid of bed bugs...Please, don't go there!

The staff was very friendly!!! Room was clean. Breakfast was nice. Very close to University of Maryland. Will stay there again as my son will be attending four years of college at the University of Maryland.

Room Tip: If you don't like noise from children in the pool, ask for an outside room.

Great front desk staff at check in and through out the hotel all the staff was great. The fundome area was great for me and my family. The breakfast was great even the pay breakfast was a reasonable price and it was good. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were awesome. Will def stay here again. Was a little worried about other reviews but they weren't right in what they were saying. Great stay

Requested a room for a handicap woman and were given a second floor room with no elavator,The hallways are filthy, people smoking in hallway and on stairway causing smoke smell in rooms, walls so thin you can hear everything in the room next to you , large groups allowed in one room ( room next to ours has 6 kids and 4 adults) at 1:30 a.m. I complained about the noise and was told by staff there is not much they can do. Pool and play area are nice for kids,the room is dated but not so bad although the shower is made for a short person. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone

I am a Scout leader from Philadelphia , PA. We have stayed at the Clarion Inn at College Park, MD for several years now. The room rate is very reasonable. The "Fundome" is great for families with children. Everything is right there among the pool, whirlpool, putting carpet, shuffleboard, pool table and games. The kids are always within sight. It's a nice area to just sit with the adults in thr group if you don't want to be in the pool. The staff is good to work with. The rooms are plenty large enough for four people. There is a good restaurant in the hotel but yopur stay also includes complimentary breakfast. They make fresh waffles which are a great start to the day. They also have cereal, donuts, danish, fruit, yogurt,etc. As agroup leader, they make it easy for me to enjoy the trip also.
