Very nice room for the price. Bed was comfortable and there were plenty of towels. The dinner was mediocre at best, but the breakfast was better. i would stay here again, but wished they offered a better rate for government employers.

We've stayed here before because we like the location, walking distance to an Applebee's, a great barbecue restaurant and an IHOP. It's an older hotel, which is clean and comfortable. The check-in clerks are friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast area is nice and they also offer a modest free dinner at night. The room is nice, with a good... More

Disappointed on the cleanliness and maintenance of the rooms, see my pictures. Plaster from the ceiling, carpet being ruined. Also so the corridor carpet is full of stains. Expected at least a clean and well maintained hotel

Stay 1 night 10/21. Our room is readied & check-in was fast. Room, bed sheets & towers are all clean. And the free breakfast in the morning is hot with some choices. Will stay again next time when visit this area. Many fast food & restaurants nearby, Costco just across the street. All in walking distance.

Flew out of Grand Rapids recently and decided to stay at the Clarion. The place wasn't perfect but you can tell they are making improvements. Staff was very nice and helpful, one of the improvements seem to be the beds, they seemed brand new and were very comfy. They offer stay and park and shuttle you over to the airport.... More

From the architecture, it's clearly an older Hampton Inn... The property is worn, the hallways (though brightly lit) have low ceilings and the hallway carpeting is not the best. While the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, it's not top of the line. I noticed several "dents" in the exterior of the hotel, and the parking lot seemed... More

We stayed four nights at The Clarion in Grand Rapids. Our room was disgusting, no cleaning service, no clean towels, and a black gross bathtub. We complained many times. We were unable to get another hotel because of the Art Prize festival in Grand Rapids. Do not stay in this hotel.
