“Great value...”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Stayed one night-mid week for business with collegues. Surprisingly nice. It was very clean throughout (we all checked our beds for bedbugs too being a little paranoid...). The breakfast was fine, no cook to order omelettes, but it is not that level of hotel so don't expect that. Quiet hotel, near everything that little El Centro has to offer. I would stay there again without hesitation.

I hate this hotel I have had to stay here four different times for business and every time they screw something up. This time they told me my company did not fax over the preauthorization for the credit card. No, your incompetent staff simply lost it like they did on two other occasions. I stay at hotels for business all the time and this is the only one I have trouble with. There is always something loud going on in their hall and the rooms have the charm of prison cells. It's a glorified flop house. I have instructed my company to put me up in the San Diego area from now on and I will drive in rather then stay at this Clarion dump in El Centro. I have given this place more then enough chances.

I was really disappointed when we saw this hotel - it's old and looks old; the hotel description said it had been updated...I don't know how much or when, but updated is not the word I'd use to describe this property.

There were dead cockroaches & crickets in the side entrance foyer that no one bothered to sweep up - the dead bugs were there day we checked in and there the day we checked out.

Breakfast...pre-made frozen egg patty type things, stale bagels, etc...

The bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, but the chair and footstool was absolutely filthy - wouldn't sit in that chair on a bet.

We had friends camping at the Dunes and were not quite prepared to bring all of our equipment. We stayed one night at the Clarion and spent some time at the campsite and riding at Gordon's Well. It was only about a 30 min. drive from the motel. It was a great location. It was nice to leave the camp and go take a jaquzzi and sleep in a very comfortable bed. The room was cute (motel style), and the bed was very comfortable with nice bedding. The jaquzzi was great. The pool area was in a nicer courtyard instead of just being out in a parking lot. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. There is a Denny's attached, They also had live music on Sat. night. The continental breakfast was pretty shabby, and we ended up eating at Dennys. All in all it was a great choice. We would definitely stay again. One tip: we booked our room on-line, and found out our rate would have been much better had we simply called the motel to reserve.

I always expect pretty good things from Clarion, and stay there as often as possible. We were a little disappointed the first night that the refrigerator in the room was so noisy, but they moved us to another room the second night. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. Some of the renovations must still be going on because there were broken tiles near the pool area, and one of the areas was roped off, but that wasn't a problem. Breakfast was simple but hot.

We stay here when we go for birding outings at the Salton Sea, so the location is as good as it gets for that. They start serving breakfast reasonably early so we can sleep well and get up and out in good time. We will be back.

Seemed to have the best price of the motels that had higher ratings and was a fine place to stay, not that there's a whole lot of choice in El Centro (or the Imperial Valley, for that matter). Room was spacious and seemed to be clean, and we got a good night's sleep.
