3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This hotel is very close to the airport and transit station, which is a big plus to commute to the city, if you don't like the trouble of renting a car. Room size is average with all the necessary amenities.

Basic hotel with no frills. It does the job if you are looking for a quick overnight stay directly across from the airport. Continental breakfast was not included so that was a bummer.

In general, this hotel could be a gem if renovated. Shows it's age compared to the nicer hotels around this location since the SeaTac Airport area is a sea of hotels.

After touring around Seattle all day we were tired and wanted a comfy, nice hotel for our tired feet. We wish we would've booked in the heart (or nearby) of Seattle. Although, the hotel was only 15mins from downtown, we would've rather stayed downtown after we fell in love with the vibrancy of the City of Seattle.

Shuttle was fast getting to the airport, driver was polite and friendly. Hotel lobby is expected for the price paid, nothing fancy, and old. But, the rrom was another story. I travel alot and for a hotel with a $100 rate, I dont expect luxury, but I expect clean. The shower had mold, an old peice of soap on the soap holder, water went from scalding hot to freezing cold during the shower with no immediate change when adjusting. The way the condensation formed on the mirror, you could tell that there was no pride taken in cleaning this room. Clarion, you'd better take a long, hard look at this location. I will not stay here again

The hotel spaces are reasonably clean. You expected to see normal wear and tear in room walls. In addition to the mold and mildew in the shower, the stand looks satisfactory. There is complimentary parking and WIFI, which is a plus. The hotel also runs airport parking program for nine dollar per day, which makes finding a good parking spot not quite easy.

Room Tip: Higher floor if possible.

We did the park and fly package. We were very happy with our one night stay and being able to leave our car for 10 days for such a decent rate. Shuttle service was reliable and nice. The hotel itself is a little dated, but very clean. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and a great shower...all the important things. It was surprisingly quiet too. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Will stay here again next time we fly out at the crack of dawn.

We stayed at this "hotel" on Sept 21, 2013 for one night prior to cruising to Alaska.

The hotel shuttle was very prompt upon calling the hotel and the driver very friendly and informative as were the front desk staff.

A one night stay at this "hotel" was the best thing I can say about the review of this place. The hotel is in a desperate need for a major overhaul or should I say tear it down and start all over.

We were placed on the third floor and what a shock it was. 1st, the "hall (s)" to the room are more of a glorified, old carpeted ramp(s). These are not condusive to handicaped people. While walking down the hall you feel the weak spots that at all costs avoid. I was worried that one of my party would put their foot through the soft spots. It seems as if you're walking a mile before getting to the room. The room is adequate at best, bed is comfortable and sheets seemed to be clean, the bathroom was lightly clearned, the sink stopper did not work and hair in the bowl of the sink. The room was outdated, old and in need of desperate updating.

Don't even thing about getting some ice. Finding the ice machine for the 3rd floor is an adventure all it's own and you may need a map. You'll have to traverse the "ramp" hallways not once but twice and wind your way to the other side of the hotel for a bucket of ice. Once there, watch your step, there's a stairway, that if you're not looking will spell disaster for you, as in tumbling down the stairs.

On booking this hotel we read there was a continental breakfast, free coffee in the lobby (day and night) and cookies. Where they were? No idea. We did go to the restaurant for breakfast however and was pleasantly suprising, good service, food hot and tasty. As of this writting I see that these items are not mentioned anymore. Interesting.

The best thing about this hotel was the cheap price. I definately would not recommend or stay at this hotel again. I would spend more money for a better hotel, even for a one night stay.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel.

Thank you for your review, I appreciate your input as it helps us to improve our services. I have to correct you on one thing though. There is no website online that says we offer free continental breakfast, free lobby coffee or cookies, we never have. You must have seen that elsewhere. We do however offer excellent service, a full service restaurant and lounge with fantastic food and service. I hope when your in Seattle again you will give us a try again. Thank you.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on a recent trip to Seattle - fortunately, only one night. This hotel is in desperate need of updating. The room decor is from the 80's with the same furniture and worn carpet. Strong, unpleasant odor when you stepped off the elevator. Based on the condition of the room we decided it was best not to dine at the in-house hotel. Luckily, there is a Hilton walking distance from the Clarion that offers excellent dining and a delightful atmosphere. Management needs to do some serious updating at this hotel, For thirty dollars more per night we could of had a nice hotel that we enjoyed hanging out at. The next morning we got up super early and left for the airport and had breakfast at Anthony's and enjoyed coffee and reading the news paper. The staff was friendly and the hotel shuttle was prompt.

Sorry you are not happy with us. We may not be the newest kid on the block but we do offer great service, clean comfortable rooms with all the updated amenities and the furniture is more from the 2000 era but the carpet is only a few years old. I will look into this a little more to see if I can see what you did. I am truly sorry you did not experience my restaurant, we have excellent service and great food, (based on our customer reviews). I hope you will give us another chance to make it better for you. Thank you again.
