Another business trip for me but I've stayed here before a few years ago. The good things about the Clarion are it is on the beach in north Ocean City, MD. You are away from the boardwalk but can take a bus during the summer. Every room seems to have a view of the ocean since rooms have a small balcony on side of building. The hotel room was good size with 2 double beds, a sofa bed, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and safe. The safe is a nice touch. The bed was soooo comfortable! I didn't hear anyone in the hall but there weren't too many there this time of the year anyway (during the weekday). The room was very clean. Dining room has great view of the ocean and meals were tasty. Great conference rooms with good service. The hotel and dining staff were super friendly. Lobby was inviting.
Here are a few downsides... The hotel room was a bit "tired." Tub was discolored. The doorway to bathroom was small and no way a wheelchair would fit. The bathroom itself is quite tight and tiny. Seemed like the number of electrical outlets were limited for the need to recharge electronics. The closet doors are still the same old sliders from years ago...they didn't slide then and they still don't, at least in this room. They fell off the tracks and I couldn't get them back on.
In the end, the hotel is average in today's hotel climate. If you can put aside those few downsides mentioned above, then this is average hotel for a good price. They are not deal breakers at all. If I was traveling with my family, I myself would opt for someplace a bit newer due to my personal tastes. Pictures included. The friendly, courteous, and helpful staff do provide a higher level of service that help mitigate the age of the hotel.
