The Room needs updating. The bedspread had a hole in it. Room smelled musty but was fairly clean. If you have a meeting be prepared to walk, walk, walk to get from your room to the meeting rooms. No vending machine for snacks. They did have a pleasant staff and the breakfast was very nice.

We had been in the car all day and we were hungry and we saw that the hotel was attached to a sports bar called Barefoot Bernies so we pulled in. The check in was friendly and the room rate very good on a Sunday evening. The halls are a little noisy but the room was clean and the wireless worked perfectly. The hotel is on a main road so there is some road noise. There is an inside walk to the bar. The free breakfast was above average. We have a new place to stay when we are in Hagerstown.

I don't usually write reviews but I had to give an update after reading some bad reviews about this place. I found the Clarion to be clean, the rooms were large with nice king size bed, large desk area, and refrigerator. Staff was wonderful- very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was a bit larger than most, with sausage gravy, biscuits, waffles and the usual assortment of cereals and pastries. There was a good restaurant next to the Clarion where we had a very reasonable, tasty dinner with quick, friendly service. I was here on business, will be returning several times and will definitely stay at the Clarion. It is very reasonable and a bargain at this price. I would definitely recommend staying here!

The hotel was the worst, there was mold in the rooms, the pool area was terrible. The chlorine levels in the pool was too high that it was hard to breath. In addition the rooms were stuffy, they had to put dehumidifiers in rooms to get the stuffiness out. This was the worst place I have ever stayed at. Don't not go there, I repeat do not stay there. I would not send my worst enemy there to stay

Room Tip: Don't say at the hotel is the best way to pick a room

First room, head of bed was lower than foot of bed = broken bed. Second Room: Bed in a little better shape but not much. Regardless, I refused to sleep in the bed as it was disgusting. Rooms disgusting. Carpeting dirty and smelly, Bathroom had gross stains on the wall. All for the reduced rate of $90 wasted bucks a night. A NIGHTMARE! Customer service desk is useless. No help. This junk hole isn't worth more than $20 bucks a night. What a waste! Being in the room, which smells like chemicals hiding mold odor, makes you itch. I can only suspect there are bugs of many species here. Don't waste your hard earned dollars like we did. It is disgusting.

Room Tip: Don't bother. None here.

Stayed one night while traveling through. Booked through Priceline/Bookit.com for a VERY good deal. Hotel was in convenient location, staff was friendly. Room was decent and Continental breakfast provided. Worth the discounted price!!!

I had a romantic overnight trip with my fiance, so we decided to go all out and get the King Suite with a 2-person whirlpool tub in it. The room was very large, and clean. The whirlpool tub was very nice, but I don't think there is an air conditioner vent in the bathroom, as it got very warm and stuffy in there. The hallways and elevator were very hot too. The pool and atrium were very pretty and clean, the pool had a great temperature. My only complaint is that the bar wasn't open, even though it was supposed to be open on a Saturday night.
