We stayed at the Clarion Hotel Beachfront for two nights and had a great time! The hotel was great from the staff, the room, and the breakfast. The staff was excellent-although the men at check-in and check-out were friendlier-seemed the women weren't as friendly. Check-in was smooth even though we were early and the room wasn't ready (my fault-not theirs)...

My family and I arrived exhausted from a long drive and were greeted with overwhelming kindness and generosity by the Clarion Hotel's staff. They bent over backwards to accommodate a broken foot, spent precious time giving us good recommendations and made us feel welcome. The views from our room were amazing, and the waterpark tickets were a hit with the...

Average rooms that need updating. Staff was not friendly or welcoming. Beach is decent to watch the ferry boats. Breakfeast was average but free. Felt the room was worth much Less than what I paid for.

After reading online about recent remodeling we were anxious to stay at the Clarion. We were quickly disappointed with the poor cleanliness of the desk top and the carpet has not been vacuumed. Many of the towels were either stained or not well laundered. The Internet WiFi did not work except in lobby. Desk staff indicated it often did not...

We were looking for a nice clean hotel at a good price that was close to the campground our son and his family were staying at. The Clarion had a great rate and the reviews were good. When I called to book the room, I was quoted a much higher price but when I mentioned the on line price, I...

The hotel was very clean. It was also one of the few hotels that had a beach that reached to the water, most others nearby were grass areas and had swampy area. The lakefront rooms were wonderful and very spacious. They had a balcony to enjoy the gorgeous waterfront. In walking distance from the city, will definitely be staying here...

Wallpaper peeling off bathroom walls. Pull out sofa sleeper stunk so bad of bodily fluids we couldnt sleep in it. Lobby stunk badly of smoke. Towels and washcloths...

Check-in was quick and girls were friendly enough (all from Jamaica). Our room was first floor (149), below the breakfast room, which was very loud in the morning. The hotel was only half full, so I don't know why they would put someone in that room if they don't have too. Two other rooms, 148 and 150 would have the...

When we first came are check in went smoothly and we were given all the tourist coupons. We got into our two adjoining rooms overlooking the beach and water. We noticed a fairly strong smell of perfume, Other than that the rooms were nice and very clean. Unlike some other properties that we saw our beach was very clean with...

After having bad experiences at thunderbird inn and the fairview next door, the Clarion was by far the best we stayed at! Our rate was $150 and was right on the beach on a sunday evening stay, checkin was flawless, great sandy beach area, rooms were a bit "older style" but they were very clean and spacious which is all...
