“Nice room, nice price”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

Of the many motels my wife and I stayed at during our two weeks on the road out west, this Clarion Inn stands out. The desk clerk cheerfully accepted our discount coupon--that in itself was a welcome change. There was a freshness about the room, the linens and all, that was a welcome change as well. There was an ethernet connection in the room that hooked right into my laptop, giving me great, instant internet access. A plug-in internet connection that works and works well? Wonderful.

The hotel grounds map given to us had a map of the city on the flip side, a nice touch, particularly since we needed to find a laundromat. The clerk gave us accurate directions of where to find one. This hotel didn't have some of the amenities we got at other hotels, a free continental breakfast for one, but after a week of biscuits and gravy and often stale pastries, we were ready for a real breakfast. That worked out well too since I really enjoyed my German sausage and cheese omelet at the Ox-Bow restaurant in Bliss, Idaho. But that's another story.

I see other travelers have not rated this hotel as highly. If they had stayed in some of the lesser quality inns we did this trip, I think they would agree that the Clarion is superior. We liked the town too.

Driving across country while moving to Tacoma, stayed in a comfort suites in st louis, mo and a quality inn in ft Collins, co. This hotel was the same price as the others but offered no hot breakfast, no fridge or microwave in the rooms, no indoor pool, and the bathrooms were half the size. We were very disappointed.

My husband and I are in our early 70's and getting up to a room on the second floor without an elevator is an effort - but we did it. Room was fine. Average size for a two-queen-bed room. Adequate shower, thick (thicker than usual for a hotel in this class) towels.

A restaurant is attached to the hotel (The Country Kitchen). I had French toast and bacon. Waitress forgot to bring milk for my coffee. Took a while to get waited on (because I was eating alone? maybe). The hotel gives guests a $5.00 voucher (per room) every day, which made my breakfast plus tip cost $4.00.

The staff, including front desk, housekeeping and maintenance personnel, was OUTSTANDING. Each person we met was friendly and helpful. They were cheerful with guests and one another and alert to guest needs. I even asked one of the housekeeping women if there was something in the water in Ontario because everyone is so upbeat.

The hotel is very clean and attractive. I would recommend this property to anyone travelling to/through Ontario.

Room Tip: Elevator would be nice.

This is a deteriorating property that needs an update urgently. The room size and amenities are average for a property of this type, although the bathroom is extremely small and difficult to maneuver in. The bathroom fixtures are dates and pitted and the drains are very slow. I showered in six inches of water at the bottom of the tub. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, an average property with some below-average features.

Stayed here one night as we were traveling through Oregon. Hotel accepted pets, but charged a pet fee. Room was clean as was bathroom. I would say beds were comfortable. NO sign of bed bugs. Plenty of space around the outside of hotel to walk our dogs. The only drawback was there was no elevator and we were on the 2nd floor. I had to carry both dog crates up the stairs to our room. We had Not made reservations ahead of time, so there were no more rooms on the 1st floor. That was our mistake. I would rate this hotel as above average, clean and affordable.

Clean, decent hotel with attached restaurant and bar. Very helpful and friendly staff. First visit to town and staff helped decide on a restaurant for dinner and gave detailed driving instructions. Checked in later to make sure we had found the restaurant and enjoyed our dinner.
