The Bad

  • Dated rooms
  • Limitations
  • Pets
Guests are thankful the staff is so cooperative, but the hotel is beginning to show its age. In some cases, the rooms are extremely dated and even stained. (We're talking peach and tan colored walls, gold and cream colored dressers, popcorn ceilings, and green tile in the bathroom with stains). Other shortcomings:
  • pool area is basic
  • the fitness room is subpar with broken equipment
  • the arcade has only 5 games
  • a very old elevator
At best, Clarion is okay, adequate and clean for an overnight stay. For the low budget price, people generally are willing to overlook any of the hotel's deficiencies. If customers are traveling with pets, chances are Clarion won't take them-since being pet-friendly is not promoted on the Clarion website. However, Choice Hotels International (which Clarion is a subsidiary of) generally offers a list of their pet-friendly hotels. To find a specific Clarion hotel that may accommodate pets, one has to search the Choice Hotel.com website under the category 'pet-friendly hotels.' Also to be noted is that promoted amenities are typical at most United States hotels but not guaranteed. Additionally, amenities will vary at International locations.

The Bottom Line

As a midscale full-service hotel offering food and beverage and meeting space amenities, Clarion is a nationally recognized brand serving a need in the "gatherings" marketplace which, according to their website, is not filled by any other hotel brand today. The main selling points are its on-demand services and meeting spaces with convenient and affordable accommodations. For the low budget price, people generally are willing to overlook any of the hotel's deficiencies.

take7 Sandy, UT

Stayed in one by disney and the view was amazing. It was beautiful and clean and felt fancier than what we expected. The beds were comfortable and plush. It was quiet. The front office was helpful with places and rides. Kids enjoyed the swimming and TV and wi fi. Walking distance to shop. It was a great price package deal with disney tickets. Enjoyed very much.

The Clarion is an average hotel. If your looking for low prices and just a simple easy hotel then this is the hotel for you. It is clean and has a great breakfast in the morning. I once stayed at the one in Tennessee and it wasn’t very nice and clean.

We have had good experiences with Clarion in the past.its not my first choice in a hotel but it’s ok. We always make sure we read the reviews in the particular hotel we are staying at before booking and we haven’t had a bad experience.

The clarions I have stayed in have been average hotels. Nothing spectacular. Perfect for a one night stay for work, but I wouldn’t bring my family.
