“Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Booked this hotel through Priceline and got a great deal with a nice surprise. Very clean and comfortable rooms. This hotel looked like it went through a renovation for the better. From check in to check out I was treated great. This hotel offers a reception/dinner from 5-7pm, it was Burrito night when I was here, offering hot Burritos, Chips & Salsa and a Salad. I came down about 6pm and there were just two Burritos left (good sign), the staff must have noticed because as I was there they brought in a tray of Sub Sandwiches for anyone that needed food for the next hour. Nice move staff and way to pay attention to detail. Great customer service that would make me want to stay at this hotel again. Overall a very comfortable stay.

I am happy to report that I just stayed at the nicest Clarion Hotel I have ever seen! This hotel has been recently renovated and it is very impressive! The second you step foot into the lobby you know you're not entering just any clarion! The interior design and decor makes you feel like your staying in a up scale place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Stayed here in mid July 2012. The room was very OK. Comfortable bed, the room felt clean, the bathroom was quite OK and felt clean. Breakfast was pretty good with the traditional hot offerings (biscuits, gravy, sausage links, scrambled eggs) plus normal continental breakfast. The dining area is pretty small compared to the number of rooms/possible users - not so good for groups. Time your breakfast well or be OK with dining in your room. The biggest disappointment was the WiFi operation. If I stood next to my door with the laptop, things were OK. If I moved back to the work desk (15ft from the door) nothing worked. I moved the desk to a location 6ft from the door and had a reasonable signal but sluggish internet access. We are a connected society these days, the service provider/installer to this hotel or hotel management should be held accountable! This is an older hotel and has two floors; the elevator is just being readied for operation.

Room Tip: The hotel has two floors. Elevator operation was being readied but not operational. WiFI connection...

Applebees.... especially after a trip to motel hell in muskegon hts. The rooms are very pleasant. Close to everything...except a little caesars when your craving a $5 pizza....The front desk staff was extremely helpful...Would definately stay again when in the area

Very loud with kids running up and down the halls and slamming doors at all hours of the night. Staff does nothing about it. Room reeks of mold and smoke. The breakfast...well who knows. There were no plates or forks out for the little amount of scraps that were out. Would never stay here again, especially on a weekend.

I've stayed at the Clarion many times and have seen many improvements. I think the hotel is an excellent value for the money. Remodeled and new front desk and lobby. Clean rooms with wi-fi. New mattresses, new and really good breakfasts and hordoerves in the evening. Flat screen tvs and great location. Friendly staff. Will definitely stay again!

I don't know if it was just because it was a Thursday, not the weekend, but my stay here was absolutely perfect. Kaitlin Wyma was so nice and attentive at the front desk, and it was the quietest hotel I've ever stayed in! A lot of hotels try and make your stay a calming experience, but I was just so impressed with the lack of noise. That plus the beds really did make my stay a very refreshing one. Also, Brian Sehr had breakfast all ready downstairs when we needed it, at 4:30am! I'm definitely looking forward to my next stay here.
