Spent two evening at the hotel and was delighted by the facilities and service. They serve a bountiful buffet breakfast and the dining was excellent. The crab cakes are as good as one finds in Baltimore and the bartenders know how to pour a good drink. The town of Shepherdstown is most charming.

Our experience was virtually identical to that of the previous reviewer. Phone that didn't work, security latch had been yanked off of the door, scratched and dingy furniture, analog (Really?) TV reception that was a joke, cracked sink, and a terrible breakfast. I had a better breakfast at a Super 8 motel recently, and it was free. This one cost us $17 for 2 people. Ironically, the only bright spot with this hotel was the great service in the breakfast room.

The problem is, there are virtually no decent, moderately priced hotels serving the Antietam National Battlefield Park, so you are kind of stuck, if you are interested in Civil War history. This one should charge about half as much, to make the cost equivalent to hotels of similar quality. Don't stay here unless you have to.

Room Tip: Don't stay here unless you have to!!

Stayed here on business for a few nights. The front desk staff was very polite and helpful. Other than that, this hotel falls far short. My room had old dingy scratched furniture, stained carpet, cracked sink, water stained bathroom door, a phone that didn't work, and antiquated hair dryer (looked like it was a vacuum).
I felt like I could have done a better job making the bed each day than the maid did. The room just seemed dirty.
Unless they update, I won't be back.

I rode with my bike club up to WV and decided to stay at the Clarion Hotel. Its an older property but clean and neat. The bar and restaurant were very nice and the prices were reasonable. The room was well equipped and clean. The shower was good and there was plenty of soap, shampoo and towels. Breakfast was buffet style and very good. I plan on staying there again!

We were looking for somewhere to stay after visiting Harper's Ferry and came across the Clarion.
It was very reasonably priced so we stayed for two nights. The room was a good size, with coffee making facilities and fridge.
It was very clean. The bar was excellent and had live music on Saturday night which was good. We also had something to eat at the bar, which was very good. It is nice to have somewhere to go where you don't have to use the car. The next evening we managed to get back in time for happy hour, it was such a nice day we were able to sit outside and have a meal. All the staff were extremely friendly and very pleasant and helpful. Being really critical the hairdryer was the worse thing about this hotel!

Only stayed one night on our way back to Washington. The swimming pool is a bonus after a hot day travelling. As it opens early in the morning, we were also able to have a quick dip before breakfast. The room was comfortable, a good shower and coffee facility. I would have prefer kettle as I drink tea and using the coffee maker is not ideal as it gives your tea a coffee flavour. But this is only a minor inconvenient. We were able to print our boarding pass in the reception area. There is a bar/restaurant on the ground floor which is fine but you can opt for a better dining experience if you go to the other restaurant. This was our second stay there as we certainly would go back.
