This hotel connects to the exhibition center and offers a decent free breakfast and a happy hour at night. There is no gift shop or any large hotel amenities. The rooms are clean, staff attentive, but no food and beverage facilities. Closest food place is Coliseum Bar about a mile away. No gas stations nearby.Taxi service not prompt from latest visit. Plenty parking.

Room Tip: Didn't sample enough rooms - like in most hotels, stay away from vending and elevators/ice machines.

We stayed here & were astounded with the outstanding hospitality. Everyone was incredibly nice & accomodating. They have a free happy hour with light snacks & beer and wine which was great. They also had a free breakfast that was hot & made to order. It was really convenient because we were going to a concert that was being held across the parking lot. The hotel also shares the lot with a convention center. I left something there on accident. I called a month after the fact & they had the item. The manager took a trip to the post office to mail it back to me. I couldn't believe it! We got an incredible deal so I guess the price has to do with the timing based on some other reviews. Regardless, it is worth it for the convenience & hospitality.

Room Tip: We had a suite which was one bedroom with 2 queen beds + another room that had a pull out couch, tv & sitting area as well as a kitchenette.

Have stayed here several times now, during the big Canoecopia canoe & kayak paddling expo in March.
The rooms have always been comfortable and clean, there's lots of room in the lobby area, and a room with a couple of computers. Can't beat the location if there for a show/event at the Alliant Center as it's connected. The workout room isn't much to speak of, but there are three treadmills (which work), a bike a stepper and a set of weight machines. Good enough, though the ventilation in the room could be better. Decent indoor pool. Friendly, helpful staff. Good place to stay. Breakfast is OK..

I stay at this same Clarion each year. It connects to the building where I do a canoe/paddling outdoor show each March.

The motel is always clean, employees are very nice & helpful, free parking. They have an evening hour for "Happy Hour" with snacks too. Their breakfast can be something they make each morning like scrambled eggs/bacon/sausage/gravy and biscuits or you can make your own waffle, enjoy fresh fruit, different kinds of juice, milk, coffee, bagels, and toast.

The rooms all have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and they give you plenty of towels for the bathroom. You get four pillows, 2 different firmness types)

Is it cheap? No. But for "cheap" you'd never get all the ammentities that the Clarion offers. It is a very good price and worth the money you pay.

Room Tip: I like to get a room higher up for more quiet, though I must say except we've really never had any problem with noise no matter what floor we've been on.
