We were here for a bridge tournament attended by almost 90 people. This was all handled fine by the staff. Our room, while in the "new" part of the Doherty, was very out dated. The pillows were pretty bad. The room was large & clean. The food was average for a buffet. We wouldn't stay here again unless we were...

After being a local for years to Clare Co and moving away. We came back to visit some family and they booked us a room here. First time and last time stay. My expectations were supremely let down. We entered the room which was 2 queens; #168. The walls were stained and skidded up with skid marks as if someone...

We stayed in the older part of the hotel, and the furnishings were a little "tired". But the room was clean and spacious. The public hallways on the main floor were in the process of being redecorated while we were there, and it looked like it was going to be quite lovely when it was done. The location in the...

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Doherty Hotel in Claire, Michigan. The rooms were spacious, clean and very quiet. The Doherty is a 4th generation locally owned hotel and I was impressed with the customer care and service provided by the hotel staff and ownership.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Doherty in room 330 on the Bike and Hike Package. The room was large enough to store our bikes and was very clean. The bathroom had a shower only, but that was fine with us. The bed was comfortable and bedding was clean. The room was quiet and we were not disturbed...

We wanted to stay in Mt. Pleasant but it was back to school weekend for Central so we stayed in Clare rather than pay $250. or more. Our room was a king non-smoking. We had a frig and coffee maker. Chose to eat dinner in the restaurant rather than drive to Mt. Pleasant. Our dinner was great. They had a...

Stayed here during my husband's grandmothers birthday celebration. It was your average hotel with some old time charm. Staff was very nice and helpful. We used the area by the pool for an after party. It was a very nice pool and lounge area! It looked like one of the nicer hotels to stay in the area.

I have been staying here so long that I have forgotten how many years I have been coming here. My spouse and I often stay here if we have a concert or football game in Mt Pleasant and it is always enjoyable. The Pere-Marquette bike trail now starts across the street from the hotel by the library and runs to...
