Drunk people all over the hotel at night; you won't get any sleep... keep your children with you at all times! Employees and management don't seem to know what they are doing! Stay in Mount Pleasant or Midland... much nicer hotels, but then again see for yourself.

Stayed at this hotel, taking advantage of their Golf package for over 20 years. The hotel updated several times in the first 10 years or so, and just recently they did some work adding an outdoor eating area. The hotel has the best breakfast, rooms are clean, pool is great, hot tub is great, the pool area is always a... More

The breakfast Layouts were GREAT! So many selections. At dinner, we really enjoyed the salad bar. The food was always really good as was the... More

Positives: ideal location in Clare. Moderate prices for a regular room. Friendly staff. We thought the restaurant and bar were terrific. Very nice terrace outside the restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable with a good bed. Indoor pool. Strong WiFi. Negatives: lobby looks a bit worn. Kind of icky colors and strange lighting in the hall outside our room,... More

The location is great for people driving toward the upper part of Michigan. We drive there in the evening and then we have a short drive to our destination after a great breakfast in the morning. It is hard to review the Doherty unless you understand the history of it. It is actually two very different hotels sharing the same... More

Spent two nights at the Doherty for a graduation. We ate breakfast because of the homemade hash. Hubby said it was wonderful. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy but very clean. Had coffee maker and frig in ours. Nice linens. We ended up going to the bar on the main floor later and I had the french onion soup. It... More

We came to Clare to use its bike trail which was only 2 blocks away. Hotel is in center of town within walking distance to other businesses. Woman at front desk was very friendly and showed us how to get to the pool area. We enjoyed the hot tub after bicycle riding. Rooms were clean and we slept well. Water... More

If you are expecting a holiday inn express or a hilton garden inn the don't come. If you would like to spend a day and evening in a small charismatic town then come and stay. The staff are friendly and the hotel was very clean. The restaurant was nice. The menu is probably a bit too large to do a... More

The rooms are large, the pool is nice, and the front desk staff are pleasant. Those are the good things. But it's very dated, not well kept up, and there is ZERO sound insulation between the rooms. You can hear every word and noise from the rooms around you. Every one of them! And it's not that they were being... More

Nice room, going through updates to hotel always nice visiting. Have some awesome packages available. Staff is very helpful, always nice having a Bloody Mary and meal in the restaurant...only complaint I have is that there was a dirty washcloth left on the shower rod.
