It is hard to accurately rate this hotel, as they are apparently undergoing a remodel of sorts. It looks like they are trying out paint schemes in the courtyard area; the place otherwise looks like it already has 20 coats of paint. The lobby looks like it recently had been updated, check in was fast and friendly. The room we...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel. Since your stay we have very nearly completed the renovations, and will be finishing the work in the very near future. Our breakfast has been moved back into the lobby, and as of this coming Monday will be being served out of our new bistro. A great...

Nothing in advertisement prepared us for the shape this Clarion was in. Couldn't use the heated pool or hot tub due to debris from roof construction. The "breakfast" which was set up in a stripped hotel room had no seating. The food was flavourless, kind of like food tastes when you have a bad cold. This place needs help, until...

When done with construction will earn four stars. People here are real nice. Breakfast is in a room for now but they are trying hard. Beds and pillows are great. Pool and got tub look good. Wish it was warmer.

Under renovation and was unaware until arrival. The room we stayed in was dated. Sliding bathroom door was hard to operate. Breakfast was poor. Walls don't offer much of a barrier from outside or nearby room noises. In room coffee was decaf only. Thought maybe they made a mistake but second day had the same thing.

Apparently there are rooms that have already been rennovated and yet I was given the oldest room I have ever been in, tucked in the back end of the hotel near the laundry room. The breakfast was WITHOUT ANY EXAGGERATION, DISSSSGUSTING. Pre packaged breakfast sandwhiches. I took on bite and I could not even fake it,, I had to spit...

The Clarion, a handsome Spanish style facility, is being extensively renovated (formerly a Comfort Inn). My king room was refurbished, updated, and upgraded. The Lobby, breakfast area and other public areas are still under renovation but this did not affect my stay. The room was good-sized, clean and comfortable with a nice large bath and good shower, desk, comfortable side...

While traveling to California for a trip to Disneyland, we decided to stay at Comfort Inn in Santa Ana, CA. Boy, what a mistake!
