I have stayed at this hotel a number of times in the past, this time I heard about some construction which they advertised as being done by december. When I booked the room I was told we would not be affected. We arrived and found the main building closed for repairs from a storm over a year ago and we...

Save you time and money, no matter what the discount is not to stay at The Clarion Resort Lauderdale Beach Resort. We were visiting relatives in the immediate area, so I knew of this hotel before as a Howard Johnson's, that was decent, it certainly is NOT ANYMORE. Positives: Location to the Beach, right on it. Nice Beach Bar w/a...

I have stayed at this hotel serveral times over the last few years. It seems that each time I go there it is a little worse than the time before. The location is great, right on the beach with shopping and places to eat right accross the street. The hotel itself now leaves a lot to be desired. Our partial...

I read the reviews before going, but still decided to go ahead and stay here - the price could not be beat. I went with a friend, and our goal was simply to relax. We had to spend more time in the room than planned due to some rain, and while the accommodations were less than luxurious, it was definitely...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way from Cocoa Beach to Miami. Initially we were disappointed regarding the location and the weather was terrible when we arrived. However, the beach looked good despite the torrential rain! The Clarion was good value for money but you get what you pay for. Fine for a stopover. Didn't eat at the...

We toured the Clarion on the internet so we knew what everything was going to look like. It started out as a vacation for us both but before we left we decided to make it a wedding on the beach and that's exactly what happened. We were helped in everyway with the photographer and someone there to be our witnesses....

I stayed at this hotel last month, in spite of the bad reviews I read on here, I decided to stay at this hotel anyway. Looking back, the reviews were actually "generous". We stayed in the beachfront building, in an ocean front room. This hotel is in dire need of a total renovation. Many of the terraces sliding doors, especially...

Must say the people at the front desk were nice. Also close to the beach....but the place is not clean. The maids do not clean up the room or bathromms well at all. The clumps of hair in the corner were not a pretty sight. The place is old looking and not a normal "Clarion" looking hotel. If you do...

This hotel was absolutely filthy! The maid service was horrible. All she did was make the bed. We had to track her down each time to get clean towels etc. Staff was friendly, too bad the place smelled like mold, urine and the floors were sticky. Do yourself a favor and do not waste your money.
