All the good ingredients of "hospitality" was displayed by the staff at Clarion Hotel - The Belle. It was such a pleasure after hours of car traveling to be greeted and checked in with no problems. Bobby was at the Front Desk and exhibited all the positive professionalism to be acknowledged. Even my brief stop in the Gift Shop was... More

Decent value for the money. We needed a stop on the way to Long Island. Convenient location right near the Delaware Memorial Bridge, decent room, very friendly staff. They need to spend money on maintenance (one lamp was broken, no stopper in sink). Not a big deal, but with a bit of love this place could get better reviews. Breakfast... More

During check-in, I had expected to have my name reserved for a double bed room. Instead, i was charged for a King Bed room made to fit 4 people... The front desk claimed he didn't know what happened to my reservation but that's all they had available. Then after i was complete with signing paper work, the employee "Bobby "... More

For 100 bucks, and the ratings I saw, I expected more. The gate to the pool was broken. My door knob to my room was broken. Could not slide the shower door. All the doors needed paint. The scrambled eggs were weird. Coffee cups too small. The best part was the waitstaff and hostess in the breakfast dining room because... More

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
