Arrived to find it was now the Clarion although some signs show Hampton. Good large room on the second floor. All facilities good except dirty shower head. Enjoyed breakfast especially the waffle machine which did an excellent job. Really good price when booked online. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.

THERE IS NO KING SUITE AVAILABLE HERE. Paid nearly 400 bucks with very disappointing results. (a LOT of money for Blythe, CA) The hotel's ONE king suite we booked in advance was referred to by hotel personnel as 'broken' and PERMANENTLY unavailable - only two queens available. Hotel personnel said no refunds and no discounts. My husband and I are...

First, one has to figure what their name really is. It is the "system" as a Clarion but the sign on the building says it is a Hampton Inn and it only responds to California Inn. Obviously they are going through some branding changes and all the various services haven't caught up yet. At the end of the day it...

We booked two rooms under "California Inn" and to our surprise we arrived at a Clarion Inn. We booked two ground floor king study rooms and one room was on the second floor. The hotel does not have an elevator. All rooms open to outside corridors/parking lot. The rooms were exceptionally clean. The mattresses and pillows were very comfortable. The...

2 1/2 stars more accurate but I'll be generous and give 3. Old place newly renovated/painted/etc. Quiet and convenient location. Liked micro and fridge. Didn't like black hair strands in sink upon arrival, rust around some bath fixtures and towel bar that wasn't screwed into wall and fell off along with first towel. Bed not great and sheets did not...

I am always cautious of the rooms because of so much watched and investigated on hotel. This one in particular needs to be cleaned alittle bit more, disinfected, softner on beds and sprayed or room deodorized due to "SMOKE~Smell " in our (Non Smoking Room) had to request to be moved. If they say Breakfast and dont' have "Waffle Mix"...

It was just an overnight stay, but I would have been better off sleeping in the car. The floors were stained, the white bed spread was stained and the shower head was covered in mold. My group reserved 3 rooms, each had the same issues. We felt as if we needed to be debugged. I think Its obvious why Hampton...

This place is great. It's clean it's comfortable right by restruants and Starbucks. They also offer a continental breakfast as early as 4 o'clock for those early risers like myself.

Let me start by saying I wouldn't be opposed to staying here again...especially considering it is in Blythe...but some things were great, others okay, and others not so great. Great: Had a King Study room. It was very nice and big. Had a nice sitting area with sofa, desk, nice bed, and fridge. Bathroom had high shower with nice water...

I am helping some young people cycle across the USA. The route goes right through Blythe. I've stayed here before when I did the route and it was good then. It appears that most of the hotels here have dropped their national affiliations. I found the rooms OK and the service excellent. My young friends have been camping along the...

“If you book the one King Suite - expect the switch to two queen beds. According to hotel personnel there is only one king and it is permanently occupied.”

“Try the Comfort Inn or the Best Western Sahara. If that fails, try the Best Western just across the border, probably shows as a Quartzite, AZ hotel.”

“Another thing to keep in mind is the hotel does not allow you to check in early, we sat in the lobby for an hour waiting for check in time. This is important if you are traveling from Arizona and forget the time change. This hotel does not have an elevator.”
