I booked at Clarion, because my regular hotel, Best Western Seaway (located next door) was booked due to concerts and teen sporting competitions being held the same weekend.
Checking in was no problem; the room was clean and nice. Compared to the Best Western, there is less furniture, so the room feels larger. The bed was quite comfortable, and had four or five pillows on the bed to choose from. Hot water in the shower was good, except that they should change the shower head.
I only have two negatives comments and neither would prevent me from staying here again. The water at Clarion is filtered so much that it is "soft", which for most people is a positive! For me, I never feel like I can wash the soap completely off, or get the shampoo completely out of my hair.
My other negative comment is about the breakfast in the morning. Although the Best Western next door has a more complete breakfast, the Clarion's was adequate. My complaint was they choose to serve fried eggs instead of scrambled on the first morning I was there. Considering that the hotel was mostly filled with parents with kids, I was surprised that they chose fried eggs. I watched over a dozen people look and then skip having eggs that day. IMO a bad choice for a younger clientele. The second morning was back to scrambled eggs and they were cooked well. The sausage was tasty, the bagels were fresh, and the coffee tasty.
Front desk staff was polite. No complaints at all. There is a small work-out gym downstairs by the elevator that has two treadmills and a few weight machines for use by the guests at no extra charge.
Internet worked well in the room I was in. There was also two bottles of free drinking water in the room.
