I travel a lot for work and this hotel has by far been the most accommodating I have been to. Myself and my co workers all felt at home. The food is great from the sports bar and its a very clean friendly establishment!

I was with a group on a tour bus. We stayed here one night going and one night on the way back. Both times we had good service and rooms however the air conditioner in our room the second night was noisy. Pretty much standard that you would find any where. The best part was the fantastic breakfast. Nice area... More

The incredible friendliness of the staff really shines through. Very attentive. This is a 2 plus that is really quite nice. It’s a small conference center so it’s got that feel. The free breakfast was above average. Parking was ample and easy. Easy access and easy to find. There’s about a dozen hotels all in this little cluster. Restaurants, but... More

We booked this hotel last minute and were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. We stayed on the 5th floor. When we arrived, Joshua greeted us at the front and was very kind and helpful. The bar and restaurant were closed due to the Labor Day holiday, so not sure how the food is! There... More

We arrived late Friday/early Saturday and found front door locked for extra security. I thought that was pretty cool that they care about your safety. Upon our arrival we met Joshua and his customer service was great. He got us all checked in and helpful with list of hotel amenities. Our room was clean, bed was very comfortable. The decor... More

From the check-in with Joshua at the desk, to the room and breakfast - at this price it was a steal. The property is a bit dated, but the service and comfort was super. Big parking lot outside, free to boot. Would stay here again.

After a long drive, was good to get to my destination. KAT was great and got me checked in early - always friendly and helpful! Convenient parking, fast elevators, good breakfast, handy business center, quick and consistent wired & wireless internet - another good stay!

The staff at the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center are very friendly and go the extra mile to help make this facility feel like home. I especially enjoy talking to Kat at the front desk when I go down for my free breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon. Nice and quiet. Clean.

As others have said, it's an older property, but very clean! Room was very nice. Breakfast buffet was great. Best of all, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! They all truly took an interest in us and our comfort and enjoyment, including a free shuttle to a local brewery for dinner, since we were on our motorcycles. They even... More
