“Great location, could use some improvements”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

The location is perfect. Right across from the airport, easy walking to other restaurants. We were disappointed to find both the restaurant and lounge still closed on Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. Taking Thursday off? Sure, no problem. But, when you're in the service industry, taking all four days off is a little extreme. And, with this being our second stay here in just over a month, I was disappointed to see they're still keeping their coffee makers, ice bucket and glasses in the bathroom. The shelve over the refrigerator is perfect for the ice bucket and glasses and the desk for the coffee maker. The idea of these two things being in the bathroom where the toilet is, is pretty gross.

Sorry that we were unable to accommodate your needs as far as the restaurant. Occupancy during thanksgiving is so slow that it does not warrant operating the restaurant for the 2-3 individuals that would have come in over the weekend. However, our staff are more than happy to shuttle our guests to and from any local restaurant in the area when the restaurant is closed. as for your concerns about the location of the ice bucket. we are looking to change that. thanks again for you r review. Hope you have safe travels in the future.

The Clarion Hotel at SeaTac is located across the street from the airport and is a convenient location for a quick airport stay. Found the room online directly from the Clarion website at a very good price. Reserved a king bed room with extra space work space. Room 141 had a nice work desk, okay internet, and a sofa in a quiet location in the hotel.

The room was clean and staff was friendly. The Clarion offers a 24 hour free shuttle to the airport. It is easy to walk directly to the airport too. Walk to International Blvd. and take the Light Rail elevator to the garage level of the airport and walk to the terminal. You could walk in less than ten minutes if you wish.

First, I waited about half an hour for the shuttle. Other hotels' vans circled 2-3 times each, and I was still waiting. The public areas of the hotel are very dated and have that awful motel smell, so I was a little concerned when I got there. But the room was fine, and the bed was actually very good. There is a restaurant on site, which I thought might come in handy. I checked it out in the morning, and at 7:45 it was completely empty, not even any employees in sight, a sad-looking little room which did not live up to its billing at all. I got something at the airport instead. The staff was helpful and pleasant. All in all, it was a pretty good stay, but I would probably look elsewhere next time.

Thank you for your review. Not sure about the restaurant being empty while you where here. Employee should have been there. But I do take your concerns seriously and thank you for the input. I hope we will have another opportunity to serve you again in the future.

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.
