“Nice for retirees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2011

We took a road trip from Chicago to Cleveland. We stopped in this Hotel while in the Detroit area. It was very nice. Alot of airline employees were staying there so I knew it was good. They had a nice outdoor swimmimg pool, garden with Gazebo too.
Thre breakfast was complimentary. Although I am on Weight Watchers; it was easy for me to enjoy a healthy, good breakfast. They had waffles, cold cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, fresh friut, juice and coffee. We recommend this hihgly, very nice place.

Room Tip: Look for people in uniforms.

We stay at a lot of Choice Hotels. This Clarion was a little below normal in my opinion. The rooms where clean but needed some TLC. Room #150 The toilet was super noisy and the tank cover didn't fit. It also leaked a little onto the floor. The wallpaper and paint could use an update. But the place is huge and has lots of rooms. The TV lineup is very good. The bed was comfortable and the air worked fine. The price was great-$65.00 for a king room- two people. Location is great-super convenient to the airport. The planes didn't bother us. We say pretty good hotel for the price and location.

The Clarion provided basic accomodations with microwave and refrigerator in room. Cooling system worked well in 95 degree heat. Breakfast fare so-so (skip the hash browns unless we just hit a bad batch). Staff very friendly. Special mention to Yvonne who patiently did troubleshooting on the complimentary printer when I couldn't get it to print out our boarding passes. She was cheerful and solved the problem.

From some of the reviews on here, I wasn't expecting much. But it seemed like a typical Clarion to me.

The wireless internet worked, the room had a fridge and microwave, and it was clean. The air conditioning didn't work very well in my room (107, in case the hotel is reading this).

A free continental breakfast was included, and you can pay $5.95 to upgrade to a hot breakfast.

Although I didn't use it, they have a free airport shuttle every 30 minutes. The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the airport. So during the day, you definitely hear the planes flying right above.

The price was excellent, so it was a great value. If you don't use the safe, make sure they remove the safe fee, which is on the bill by default.

We used the park and fly option. We stayed one night. The staff was courteous and efficient. Our room was slightly dated but very clean. It is two stories and no elevator so if you have trouble with stairs you'll need to tell them when you make your reservation. We were nervous about the jets flying over but around 9pm it quieted down a lot. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast included juice, cereal, boiled eggs, and pastry. We arrived late and left early but were very satisfied and would stay again. You do have to move your car in the morning but the parking lot is across the street and easy to access. It's not a luxury hotel but a good, clean option for an overnight stay close to the airport.

Not exactly the place for a honeymoon or big vacation, but for clean, comfortable, affordable rooms, Clarion's not bad at all. The decor was average, the bathroom large, neat, and clean, and the bed slept well. I'd stay there again.

My family stayed at The Clarion prior to leaving on a 6am flight. We were sleepy in the morning and I left my silk pj's hanging on the hook on the bathroom door. I called the hotel upon arriving at our destination and the front desk clerk was not helpful. They transfered me to housekeeping, and they never returned my call. I called again, requested a manager, and was disconnected. I called yet again and he gave me the typical speech; we can't be responsible for lost items.. I got the feeling that this happens often, and theft is condoned. The pj's were sentimental, a gift from my kids. I was not offered a credit of any sort or an apology.
