“Being Renovated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I did know this hotel was about to close for renovations, but it was the closest and most reasonably priced hotel near the friends we were visiting so I booked it. A great location just off of the highway and nears lots of restaurants and shopping. The staff was very friendly and we were able to check in early. The breakfast was great -- scrambled eggs, home fries, sausage, waffles plus the continental stuff. The "fitness" room left much to be desired. The floor was basically ripped out and there was one treadmill and one ellipitcal, neither of which was plugged in. My husband the fitness freak was not a happy camper. He did find the local YMCA where he was able to work out for a daily rate of $10. The bed was comfy, the room was clean -- it was good enough for a stay to visit friends.

My husband and I stayed at the Clarion after an awesome night out on the town. From the time we checked in to check out our stay was nice. Clerk at the front desk was very polite,helpful & knowledgable about the area. Even giving good tips on where to eat. The room was nice and clean and the price was GREAT!!

I stayed at the Clarion for two days with my 13-year old daughter. The management told me that the hotel is being demolished and replaced with two new hotels: One an upscale hotel and the other a new Clarion. That explains why the hotel was in poor shape.

Positives: Great location/ friendly staff/ free parking outside/ comfortable beds/ Large and decent free breakfast/ free newspaper including local (Cleveland) Sunday paper.
Negatives: Ice machines were broken on two floors/ wifi, tv, and house phone were broken, so had to move to new room. New room had funny noises at night in wall, and wifi was slow. Physical Fitness Room was worthless, and pool was non-operating.

Looking forward to replacement hotel, which manager said would happen in 2013.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Just finished a four night stay with my family while visiting family. We were able to book a two double bed room for $62 via a refundable prepaid deal on Expedia. At that price, this hotel is a screaming value. At the listed $89 it's still a good deal, but you need to accept a few minor compromises.

The hotel itself is an older property that is quite clean and well maintained, it's just a bit outdated cosmetically. The hallway carpets need to be replaced, the tv was a tube tv (heavens, I may never recover-it really was fine), the free wifi was pretty slow and a bit of color in the room would have perked it up a lot. On the other hand, it was very clean, the beds were pretty comfortable, the location is great and the free breakfast was for the most part excellent. The staff was very friendly.

A few minor quibbles:
The breakfast was fantastic our first two days, but as the hotel filled, many items weren't restocked promptly. Choices included scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage patties, real waffles, breads, apples, bananas, oatmeal and grit packets, cereals, and juice and coffee.

Free USA Today and Wall Street Journals were available in the lobby. Our last day, the WSJ was left at our door. Not sure why the different levels of service, but maybe it took that long for my brand new frequent guest membership to hit my reservation.

The pool was under renovation so no comment on that and didn't see where it would have been. There was an elliptical and a treadmill in the exercise room. Nobody was using them when we were around and they were working fine.

Not sure why anyone complained about a lack of outlets. There was a four plex plug adapter by the bed and a few more around the room.

In summary, this is a great buy if you aren't expecting luxury. For the price I paid, it was well worth it and we plan to stay there again.

There was no luggage stand in the room.
There were only 2 hangers in the closet. When I called the desk to request more, the clerk asked how many I wanted. I said 4 or 5, to which she responded, "We don't put that many in the room." And then they gave me 4 anyway.
When I returned to my room late one night, I discovered that housekeeping had left no soap in the bathroom. They took away the used soap, but didn't replace it. When I called the desk, I was informed that I had to come down and get it. When I got to the desk and complained, the desk clerk told me to tell housekeeping because it wasn't her job -- all she did was watch the desk.
The comforter was stained.
The desk clerk was always on her cell phone.
I complained to Clarion and other than 2 auto-replies, they haven't responded.

This place is surface cleaned but don't go around in your bare feet - even or especially in the bathroom. Floors are stained and/ or dirty and everything looks a bit used. Front desk was grumpy and slow. Really , so many better hotels around here . I won't choose this one again.

Really nice hotel, excellent and very friendly staff. Nice bed and pillows. Quiet. Good breakfast with eggs, bacon, and sausage.

Two small problems: The wi-fi only rarely worked, and the staff did say they were having trouble with it.

The lighting in the breakfast room is very dreary, more appropriate for a funeral parlor. The TV screen in the breakfast room was so dark it might as well have been off.

Room Tip: Room 121 is larger than some other rooms.
