We stayed at this Clarion in November 2009 while visiting Shepherdstown. We paid almost $130 for our room for a rather mediocre stay.
First some good things -- The Clarion is close to town. You could probably walk there, which would be a good idea since the parking in town is a bit of a hassle. Free parking at the hotel. Free internet. The lobby is nice. A decent breakfast buffet, and live music at the tavern located in the hotel.
Now to the not-so-good things -- The room was is need of a thorough cleaning and could also use some updating. Grime on the bathroom door. Scratched up furniture. Dirty and ratty towels (probably some of the sorriest I have ever seen). Low-end fixtures. Overall, it looked like a cheap room.
There is a row of parking spots closest to the front door of the hotel. The closest spots are reserved for handicapped spots -- no problem there. But then the next closest spots are reserved for the management of the hotel. So-called-guests have to park in the main lot. It's not a terribly long walk -- unless it's cold and windy and you're carrying a load of luggage, as we were. I don't understand a business that places its employees over customers.
I had heard that the fitness center was good, but on the Saturday morning we were there, it didn't open until 9AM, so when I went there at 8:30 it was closed. We had an 11AM checkout and still had to eat breakfast, so I was not able to use it, or even see it. I've never heard of a fitness center opening so late in the morning.
