It sure feels like a scam. I tried to check in at 1:30 and was informed check in was at 3:00. I new that but I drove all night and was tired. I was informed the hotel was full and my room 116 was not clean. I said no problem. Just cancel my stay I'll look somewhere else. I was... More

BelleGM, General Manager at Clarion Hotel - The Belle, responded to this review

Please allow me to apologize that your reserved room was not ready upon your arrival. We do have a 24 hour cancellation policy and we do have a 3pm check-in time, which can generate a small fee, should we have a room ready and you wish to check in earlier than that, as it creates additional time in the room....

The room was spacious and clean. Quiet. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up. The best part was the restaurant and and helpful friendly staff. The only negative was the ice machine on the 2nd floor was out of service. No big deal, the 1st floor machine worked.

the hotel itself isn't bad, housekeeping needs some work. Only made up one bed and did not empty the trash but yet felt the need to take change that I had left on the dresser. The gentleman at the front desk when I informed him, apologized and said he would have housekeeping come the next day, which they did. Did... More

This is a very bad and outdated hotel. I am glad it was only one night. Biggest problem was the bathroom. It needs some good cleaning to remove the nasty smell. The furniture was old and dated. Save your money in go anywhere else!

We have stayed at this hotel several times, as it is dog friendly. It is clean, but older, not necessarily run down, just not updated. Pet rooms are on the other side of hotel. I understand there are only so many pet friendly rooms. If there are no other dog people in the hotel, I feel really isolated at the... More

Rufus, the desk clerk, was excellent. When we ventured toward the rooms there was a musty smell. Our room appeared clean at first glance but the bathroom floor was not clean and the curtain had a small stain. When we went for ice, none of the ice machines worked. We went to one location where a ice machine was suppose... More

I was beyond disappointed in the clarion belle in new castle! The rooms were extremely outdated and not very clean at all. Our room smelt like an old bar where everyone was smoking. Until we were able to change our room thanks to Mrs. Washington who, by the way, was the only nice thing about this place. The nighttime supervisor,... More

I did not like the pool and that my stay does not count as a stay with the hotel because I did not book direct because that should not matter. The sitting area in back could be a little better The front desk service was great and helpful housekeeping was nice

I can't believe people are suggesting to stay at this dump! I only stayed here because it was on route for a long trip, was dog friendly and the reviews made it seem ok. I arrived late on a Saturday night after driving all day. When I pulled up at 1130pm I did not even feel safe to get out... More
