I stayed at the Clarion hotel in Rochester, MN 4/21/16 + 4/22/16. I made reservations online with my choice privileges. When I checked in the front desk gentleman told me he had to rework the reservation due to the fact wet paid in cash. He had me sign an agreement about the rate which was less than the internet offered.... More

We have stayed at this hotel since my mother was diagnosed with ALS a year ago. We go to mayo once every 3 months and the staff at clarion is by far the best! The rooms and pool area are always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast has great options from hot to cold items. We have... More

Old does not bother us, because we always look for the side-accommodations that benefit the needs of our daughter and granddaughter and us. One of the first things that we check is cleanliness, and the Clarion was very clean. We felt that our adjoining rooms were adequate space-wise. The beds were comfortable. We had all of the amenities of home:... More

The hotel was clean and the check-in staff were pleasant. But the building itself was very dated. The rooms were very small and cramped and the beds were very uncomfortable. Next to the pool is a large open space with tables and chairs, the roof over this area leaked. We had to move a table and set of chairs so... More

My family and I enjoyed our night here. Lots of pool time, hot tub. Kids played Gaga ball just outside the pool area. Crane games were a hit. Complimentary breakfast for all of us. Accommodations are very good

Stayed here for a quick weekend family getaway. Front desk staff was super friendly at check in. She even moved us to a first floor room because a member of group had issues with steps. We actually had the whole pool area to ourselves. Very quiet rooms. Rooms are dated but clean.

Hotel appears older based on external appearances and could use some inside sprucing up, e.g., repainting of rooms. There was no fan in the bathroom that resulted in mirror fogging when taking showers. However, the facility was relatively well maintained and the carpet & furniture were in very nice condition. Our room and bedding were very clean suggesting good housekeeping... More

This was the second worse hotel we have ever stayed in! Room was beyond "lived in", air conditioner blew moist air and sounded like a truck in our room. I broke out in a rash over night - not exactly saying there were bugs but I never get rashes on my legs! The ONLY saving grace was the breakfast -... More
