Nothing special. overpriced rats nest. I decided to soak in the bath, not a good idea. Take a look at the bottom of the soap dish. gross. Cleaning staff obviously doesn't do a thorough job. other options in the area. stay somewhere else.

They changed more than just their name. My experience from NASCAR weekend in 2014 as opposed to 2015 was night and day. They stopped accepting military ID discount (only for that weekend), the hallways reeked of smoke, they raised the prices for that weekend which is understandable, what was not acceptable was how understaffed they were for a weekend they...

I had a reservation at your Clarion Hotel & Convention Center Joliet Il, reservation # ........, My membership Member #: ........, and I received a confirmation email . When I arrived at the hotel, they had no reservation, nor could they find one in the local system, and did not immediately contact the main reservation center as I asked. The...

Our room was adequate with all we needed and the staff was nice. The carpet in our room looked like it had not been recently vacuumed. I really noticed in the lobby/restaurant area that it had not been dusted for some time. Breakfast was good but we were very surprised that breakfast did not include juice unless you paid an...

This was the first time I've stayed at a Clarion Hotel and will very well be my last. The rotating doors to the lobby were roped off with yellow caution tape. The lobby was old and bare bones - updated decorations would make a better first impression. The desk staff told us to park around the side. When we walked...

I stayed here for a training event with a client. The conference rooms were nice and the staff was very accommodating. The property is a bit older but has been updated and is comfortable and reasonably quiet. The air conditioner in my room was a bit noisy, but otherwise it was a decent stay - the bed was comfortable and...

Stayed close to a business stop. Parking lot jam packed. Hotel was well worn and dated but clean. Wasn't exactly what I had envisioned for the Clarion name. Halls were dark and overly so. They simply need to invest in upgrading the property. As you never have a second chance at a first impression we almost cancelled and went down...

Stayed over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed our stay! Room was clean, and housekeeping was very nice. Seemed like a nice place to hold meetings as there was a wedding reception going on when we arrived and several meeting rooms. Easy to find and lots around to do!

This hotel is basically a textbook definition of a 3-star hotel. Located immediately off I-80, it's very easy to find. We got a good night's sleep every night, which is more than I can say for the 4-star hotel we stayed at afterwards. Housekeeping was excellent and our room was immaculately clean every day. On the few occasions we had...

Just needed a place to sleep, temps outside were about 90, took our room almost 4 hours to get to 75 with the AC on. Dirty bathrooms, quiet room, key stopped working twice, elevator broken, trash in the halls. Your choice on whether to stay, make sure to check the bed.
