Older property, appears to be a refurbished Holidome. One room suite was very comfortable, well equipped and clean. Desk staff and housekeeping people were excellent. Perfect location with good restaurants nearby, and easy access to Presque Isle.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and the rooms were large and clean. The bathroom was large and spotless with a good shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. - basic eggs, waffles, sausage, fruit etc. The rooms by the pool looked great for families. Would stay again.

This was our second stay at this hotel. We stayed last year and decided to come back again this year. Our room was clean except for the empty chip bags we found under the bed. In this hotel, the carpeting in the hallways are stained and the hallways always smell like farts, but the room we stayed in was clean....

We stayed here the night before taking our kids to Waldameer Park. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The beds weren't that comfortable. We used the pool in the evening. It was a great size, but crowded for a Monday and full of strands of hair...gross. In the morning we went for breakfast in the...

The floor plan in this hotel is like a maze; I had to go back to the front desk and ask for help in finding my room. The first room I was given was unacceptable, so I asked for a room change. The second one was little better,although closer to the elevator. The furniture was outdated, the linens were ripped,...

Our family and four other families stayed at the Clarion for two days. We booked a total of 5 rooms.
