I've recently read a few of the reviews talking about challenging conditions at this hotel and felt compelled to respond. This past March I organized a pre-season lacrosse camp for 6 high-school aged teams at nearby Williston-Northampton school. Five of the teams stayed in the hotel for five nights and we were really satisfied with the stay. Of course, there...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for an event also taking place at the hotel. While the hotel itself is a bit dated, the room was adequate. However, the next morning my husband looked at the mattress after I complained of bug bites. He found at least five bugs on the mattress and on his pillow. We have...

We too were on a family lacrosse weekend, We arrived Friday June 17 evening and left Sunday morning. The same garbage located around the pool and on tables located downstairs remained. I am sure families left it because there were no recepticles to dispose of the trash available. Why the staff or houskeeping did not take care of it is...

We have never felt compelled to write a review, but the condition of this hotel is horrendous. Our family, along with several others stayed here for a lacrosse tournament. We all had similar experiences - there was alot of complaining at the front desk. Our first room absolutely reeked of mold/must/cleaner. The second room had an air purifier running when...

I have stayed here several times and can see improvements. They are fixing the leaky roof and repairing the water damage. Using priceline I got a room for half the rack rate. The room was clean and showed no damage. A refrigerator and microwave were provided. The web page says there are smoking rooms but the hotel has gone 100%...

I've read some really bad reviews of this hotel on TripAdvisor, and was real worried before I got here. I booked a 2-night stay on PriceLine, bidding on a 2.5 star hotel in the area. While this isn't a 4-star hotel, this is an excellent hotel to stay at. Our room (206) was overlooking the indoor pool area. Another reviewer...

Stayed at the Clarion this past weekend. The room my mother reserved for approximately $300/night due to "Graduation Weekend" left me feeling like I needed to shower after I left. It smelled musty and still had the 1970's wallpaper which was black above the heating vent. The whole hotel had a cave-like feel, complete with crumbling plaster from a leaky...

This hotel has seen better days. The room was small, fairly clean and located poolside. The pool is located in a domed area which is in extremely poor physical condition. At night it looks and feels wonderful as a respite from the cold. In the light of day, the pool is disgustingly dirty. The hotel entrance is difficult to find,...

I went to Noho to DJ an event. I chose the ease of staying in the same hotel as the event. My first thought when I drove up was that I would probably be looking for a new hotel. Upon walking in it smelled like chlorine and must. The room wasn't disgusting, but certainly not great. The staff was very...
