HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 September 2016

We attended an annual Air Force reunion, held in different states each year, and this year it was hosted at the Clarion for four days. The staff was most cordial and couldn't be more accommodating. The room used for our hospitality room was very comfortable as was the dining/ballroom where our final special dinner and program was held. The shuttle...

We stayed here after booking a hotel somewhere else (with good reviews) that turned out to be downright scary. I knew of the clarion and immediately booked a room there. Upon checking in, staff were super friendly and we were able to get a room on the 6th floor. The room was large, clean, and smelled fresh. The bed was...

Overnight stay in Portland, close to medical center, bus and train station. Hotel room very nice, large and clean. Room has all the amenities needed fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and hairdryer. Great spot for the money and allows up to 2 weeks for park and fly deals!

Central to all the Portland fun spots. Very clean room. They allowed us to check in early, which was extremely convenient. A bit noisy after a local brewery festival closed. Staff was very professional and polite.

We arrived to the hotel around 10pm on Friday. We were greeted by a very nice female front desk agent. We booked through Priceline and were assigned room 213. The king size bed was comfy but nothing special. No water bottle amenity in the room like other hotels are doing now. The bathroom was appointed like a typical hotel bathroom...

Now, I am going to be honest, I have stayed at plenty of Clarion hotels. At best they are decent places to lay your head but I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this particular location. As soon as I walked into the hotel I was blown away by the level of quality. The hotel was...

We came down this past weekend to attend the Brantley Gilbert concert. When we arrived the lobby was very clean and spacious and the staff was very friendly. When we got to our room on the 4th floor it was a typical king bed room. Very clean and it smelled nice! The bed was comfortable and it had plenty of...

The Clarion Hotel is perfectly located for the guests who are at the nearby medical clinics. It is absolutely spotless, very well equipped, and the staff is so welcoming. To get to the hotel, you have to take an al,out invisible little turnoff between a bank and a gas station...but it is worth the effort. Convenient parking and attractive lobby...
