We booked here because of a wedding we attended nearby. Arrangements included a discount for the group of guests staying here. In hindsight, we are glad they did. The place was not very busy (except for an event featuring healthy products and mental and physical relaxation types of vendors...which was excellent), the parking was convenient, the room was clean and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable.

The pool area is in a center atrium area of the square two story building. ...many of the rooms on both floors open to the surrounding balcony, but there are also rooms that do not. The pool area was large, warm and nice. Nearby was a small exercise room with 2 treadmills and other equipment. 1 treadmill was out of order but otherwise it was fine.

There was a restaurant and also on the days we stayed there was a nice comped buffet breakfast with very good service in a nice comfy area off the atrium.

The desk service was a bit slow when we tried to check out but we just ignored it and left the card keys in the room...since we had been pre-booked and billed the day we left. No big deal.

It is convenient to many stores (Macy's...) and restaurants...we especially enjoyed the nearby Chick-fil-a!

We would be glad to stay here again if in the area.

Room tip: Liked a room off the pool area. We were interested in quiet. Place wasn't that busy on the weekend so it was probably quiet everywhere.

We stayed at the Clarion so we could visit family members here in Frederick. From the front desk when we checked in at 1045pm Friday night to checking out Sunday morning all of the staff members were warm and friendly. My only complaint is there is no elevator in this 2 story hotel, but the front desk clerk gave us first floor rooms near the pool. I loved being able to walk out our back door to the indoor heated pool. They also had a mini golf and a football table, exercise room and sauna. The pool was open 10am to 10pm. Wish they had a hot tub as well but the heated pool was wonderful.

The breakfast buffet was good. French toast, muffins, sausage patties, juice, yougurt, all kinds of cereal and weird looking eggs. They looked like a pancake as they were round and all one color. Maybe instant eggs?

The rooms had a Keuring coffee maker with coffe and hot tea. There was also a microwave and a 3 ft refrigerator. Very nice. We also had a flat screen tv and a very nice bathroom. There was also a desk in the room. Not much storage for clothing, just 3 drawers and a closet, but enough for a 2 night stay.

The price was right for our 2 night stay and I definitely would stay here again. The hotel is next door to the Francis Scott Key shopping plaza with stores such as JC Penney, Red Robyn,Jersey Mike’s and others.

Thanks for a great time Clarion Inn!

Room tip: Ask for a room on the first floor with a view of the pool.

Grabbed a Priceline deal here as evening approached and I was trying to avoid Hurricane Michaels path. The rooms are a little dated, but clean, comfy bed, Kuereg in room, functional bathroom and a pool 20 feet from the door of my room. What more could I ask for at $60. The guy at the check in desk was polite, pleasant and helpful. Would stay again if traveling through.

We alternately liked and strongly disliked our week long stay. Overall the appearance is worn and somewhat scruffy (water damage on the second floor poolside balcony). The rooms are of a good size and housekeeping is very efficient. There is lots of parking and wide open space around the hotel. Checking in for us was just short of a disaster. Arriving and finding that our pre-arranged block of rooms was not available did not make for a good start. We had requested sets of ajoining rooms and wheelchair accesible locations. All of our needs and requirements where eventually met but with much more effort than it should have taken. Our only attempt to use the restaurant for dinner was on Saturday and it was an ordeal. We came in as a fairly large group (@ 26) and had we known that there was one person working as both bartender and waitress and one cook we would have gone elsewhere. Our food came out in fits and spurts, drinks the same way. Later in the week it was a completely different world when it came to the catered food for our functions.

Room tip: With not elevator the ground floor is best

I just returned from a week long event held at this hotel. Everything was great. The room size is good, the pool was clean and refreshing. The banquet food was by far the best food I have had at a banquet. The mexican food served on our taco night was outstanding. The bar was fun and service was good. Renee who seemed to be working everywhere was awesome. No matter the request he handled it promptly with a smile. Our entire group thought he was wonderful. Definitely would stay here again.

Room tip: Ground floor rooms provide easy access, no elevator
