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

We found the Clarion to be conveniently located and were very pleased with the service. Phil at the front desk was personable and attentive. The hotel is very well maintained and our room was very, very clean. The linens are of a high quality and absolutely spotless. There were unexpected amenities in the room: refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. I... More

Before confirming my LFF reservation, I called to make sure there were pet friendly rooms available. When I discovered there were, I IMMEDIATELY continued my reseravation only for "the system" to tell me the LFF rate of $69 is no longer available, their standard rate of $119 is only available. Bad, bad, bad business move. Rotten way to treat guests.

Our daughter had a soccer tournament in the area, and the tournament booking agency lodged our team here over Memorial Day weekend. What a disappointment. The hotel is separated from the Interstate by a 10' tall cyclone fence topped with barbed wire, and the back is entirely surrounded by the local cemetery (at least that side is quiet). Our room...

Hotel is very nice, beautiful lobby, friendly staff, spacious room. Convenient location - 10 min. drive to most areas. Breakfast buffet was a plus. Very reasonable. I will stay here again when visiting my son who is moving to Delaware.

When our usual stopping places in Pennsville could not accommodate us, we crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge to find the Clarion Hotel the Belle conveniently located right at the 2nd exit after the toll gates. On arrival the clerk was able to find a room on the quieter side away from Turnpike traffic. The room was clean and appointed satisfactorily.... More

While on our drive to North Carolina, we did a one night stay here and was very happy with everything that this hotel has to offer. Located right off the highway for convenience, it has a beautiful lobby, hot breakfasts included, an amazing on site restaurant with a great menu for lunch and dinners, a large bar area and delicious...

Stayed for one night this past weekend for job interview. Room was overpriced for a bed that wobbled and sheets that had stains. Supposedly smoke-free hotel reeked of cigarettes, presumably from employees smoking in the closet next to my room. View of two highways and a cemetery (though that's not the fault of the hotel, but good to know). Desperately... More
