Reviewed 15 November 2017 via mobile

let us begin with the rats that aggressively approach you from the dumpster that are left wide open, or the rats that are feeding from the table top BBQ that is on the ground floor or the dead one that was squashed in the driveway. We can move on to the trash that is spilling out into the parking lot, leaving a ruver of grey murkey water that you have to walk thru. Disgusting dosent quite describe it. Management were oblivious, when confronted we were met with an air of indifference. The stairwell was unlit, perhaps for the best as the next morning g we saw vomit on the stairs. I'm sorry I gave to give this a one star, it deserves so much less.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Breakfast is your usual self-serve. There is a heated indoor pool (that we did not use) and a pool room.
Indoor and outdoor carpets need to be replaced. Room was nice except that our safe door was broken.

Room Tip: Best room would be inside, first floor with access to the pool from your room

We arrived to the hotel at dark and the front desk staff was nice. The hotel seemed old but ok. After arriving in our room, we looked out the window to find men building a charcoal fire and grilling out in the parking lot. The next morning while packing the car there was a HUGE rat at the dumpster, which was adjacent to the hotel and restaurant area. Needless to say, we did not take advantage of the complementary breakfast.

Room Tip: Stay away!

Amazing location situated right by Baltimore and D.C.! The rooms were cozy and while the bathrooms were a little small for a big guy like me, they were very clean and the rooms were well taken care of. Very nice couch and furnishings with a mini fridge perfect for a growler from your favorite Baltimore or D.C. craft beer spot! Indoor pool, fitness room, and breakfast coupled with a friendly staff made this a great stay for my two nights in College Park. With only a 15-20 minute drive to the Silver Springs for some great music venues (off peak hours) I will certainly be back here the next time I need a room near College Park.

I stayed here after a visit to our nations capitol, and had quite a nice time. When I arrived the front desk clerk was very friendly and courteous, and they got me checked in with no delay. My room was located in the FunDome, which is a large open space with a nice pool and lots of games to play, including fooseball, billiards, and shuffleboard (the old school one where you shove pucks across the floor with a stick, not the kind found in many bars). My room was clean and the beds were comfy. The room also included a microwave and mini fridge, which I used to store and reheat my leftovers from dinner that evening!

First impression was promising and then we got to our room. Found mold in the shower and the door would not close. On our second day housekeeping never showed up. When I went to the front desk that evening the lady was no help and acted annoyed to be bothered. The free shuttle has a great driver in the evening, a college kid. The morning driver is a grumpy old guy with very bad driving skills. On the positive side the morning breakfast was better than average and the personal were good.

The Clarion Inn in College Park, Maryland might have given me my greatest nights sleep ever. The beds are SO soft, you'll feel like you're melting into a great nights sleep. It's situated like a square with the parking lot running the perimeter so you'll never have to lug your bags far at all. It's near a bunch of tasty food joints (try the local pupuserias!) as well as public transportation. Also you can keep the kids busy with the conveniently center located pool AND putting green!

Room Tip: Get a room by the pool!
