Pros: Clean, friendly, dog friendly, free breakfast, pool, in room refrigerator Cons: Rooms are a little "tired" looking, beds are so-so, hot water ran out in the shower, extra charge for the roll-away. Our wifi did not work all weekend (we stayed 2 nights) which was disappointing. I did call the front desk for help and they referred me to... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable for our 3 night stay. The breakfast is your standard free breakfast but that was fine with us! The staff is great and it's pretty much a good hotel to come back to at the end of a long day. The pool is relatively small and I don't think you'd want to spend the... More

This was by far the worst stay at a hotel that I can recall. We booked there because we were told we would receive a discount if we mentioned the conference I was attending. First, I didn't receive a discount as promised. Secondly, when we arrived we had trouble getting our room because we use debit (money that exists) rather... More

detaylor, I apologize that your stay with us was unsatisfactory. In review of your stay, I learned that you did not have adequate payment for your full stay and were only able to pay for a portion of your stay at check in. We did request full payment for the remainder as required when you reached that point in your... More

We stayed at the Clarion Suites over the 4th of July weekend. I always read the hotel reviews before booking, so I wanted to make sure i rated this hotel. Our stay was GREAT!

We stayed here while visiting University of Wisconsin. We had good service throughout our stay. The front desk attendants were always helpful. The breakfast was better than most hotel chains. The facility itself was a little disappointing. All rooms are suites but ours was so small we hardly had enough room for us and our two suitcases. I'm not sure... More

I am very impressed with this place. The rooms are clean and quite. The Staff is very friendly and professional. Free drinks and snacks for social hour and a very nice breakfast. Definitely worth the extra over the budget hotels.

my family and I stayed here for a night while in town, and my daughter left one of her beloved toys in the hotel bureau drawers. Not only did they hang on to that toy at the front desk until we picked it up two days later, but they had also found another stranded toy of hers! We graciously were... More

I don't think that I had ever stayed at a Clarion before, and was surprised at how well appointed my room was. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was nice. All elements of the room were very clean. There was a separate counter space outside the bathroom, across from a spacious closet, that could be used as a dressing/staging... More

We stayed here one night on a prospective college visit. Rooms are very large with a sink, microwave and fridge and seating/desk area separate from beds. Very convenient by car to downtown and the university. Breakfast was better than most free breakfast buffets. Rates were reasonable. Would stay here again.
