I read poor reviews of the Clarion and it looked a bit shoddy when we arrived but actually it had everything we needed, it was clean, comfortable and had a good breakfast with highly acceptable evening meals and good service. We got a taxi downtown and walked back which was a good 45 minutes through interesting areas of the town.... More

Guy at front desk was awesomely friendly, and room was clean and well kept up. Otherwise there wasn't anything wrong or right. Windows in our room were way above eye level: now I know why they asked if the second floor would be okay. Compared to downtown Portland, the room was about half the price. So it certainly a fair...

Not easy to find, behind a petrol station, but very welcoming. Best front desk staff ever, and very good shuttle drivers and service. Fabulously comfy beds. Clean tidy rooms. Thanks very much Clarion. Would certainly stay again.

Breakfast is not included,buffet for 9.95,which we also enjoyed. We were on the 5th floor,the maids were sweet,they made us feel so welcome. They would speak and joke... More

Hotel is decent for the price. Sleeping rooms were clean and adequate. No frills. The hotel is very old and could use a remodel. Surprised that this caliber of hotel does not offer free breakfast. For the price I would probably suggest another more updated hotel.

Next to the bus/amtrak station. A short drive to the Old Port for delicious food and shopping and a short drive to the mall area. The hotel is older, out dated carpets and a very slow elevator that could use ac, but for a short visit, it was satisfactory. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Breakfast buffet ($9.95 pp)- average...

The Clarion is conveniently located near the Portland Bus/Train station. It is a great place to stay overnight before catching the early bus to Logan Airport. The staff is friendly and courteous and the room was clean. The early morning wake-up call worked perfectly for us. It's a little pricey for what it is, but we would stay here again.

Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Beds seemed more full size than queen. Plenty of pillows and blankets. Bathroom was exceptionally small, but clean and did the trick!! Hot shower was nice after traveling all day. Restaurant closes at 10. Ten minute drive back into downtown Portland.
