Reviewed 4 October 2016

For our USAF reunion with 106 attending the Clarion was a perfect for hospitality space, group breakfasts and two evening meal functions. The guest rooms were quite adequate and comfortable. The entire hotel well kept. The restaurant meals are tasty with large servings. The rapid response of the shuttle service to the airport and the old port area was a...

A group of us stayed here for one night on business in September 2016. The hotel feels dated (eighties.) The public areas and bedrooms are tired and need of a refresh. We didn't spend much time at the hotel, so ambience and decor didn't matter too much. For a vacation I'd try elsewhere.

We chose this hotel for the price, needing to stay near the airport before flying home from our Maine vacation. It is an older hotel, needs updating. Just has a tired, shabby air about it. The hallways and room had a musty smell. When we boarded our plane the next morning, the flight was abruptly cancelled and the airline put...

I read poor reviews of the Clarion and it looked a bit shoddy when we arrived but actually it had everything we needed, it was clean, comfortable and had a good breakfast with highly acceptable evening meals and good service. We got a taxi downtown and walked back which was a good 45 minutes through interesting areas of the town....

Guy at front desk was awesomely friendly, and room was clean and well kept up. Otherwise there wasn't anything wrong or right. Windows in our room were way above eye level: now I know why they asked if the second floor would be okay. Compared to downtown Portland, the room was about half the price. So it certainly a fair...

Not easy to find, behind a petrol station, but very welcoming. Best front desk staff ever, and very good shuttle drivers and service. Fabulously comfy beds. Clean tidy rooms. Thanks very much Clarion. Would certainly stay again.

Reviewed 16 September 2016 via mobile

Hotel is decent for the price. Sleeping rooms were clean and adequate. No frills. The hotel is very old and could use a remodel. Surprised that this caliber of hotel does not offer free breakfast. For the price I would probably suggest another more updated hotel.

Next to the bus/amtrak station. A short drive to the Old Port for delicious food and shopping and a short drive to the mall area. The hotel is older, out dated carpets and a very slow elevator that could use ac, but for a short visit, it was satisfactory. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Breakfast buffet ($9.95 pp)- average...
