Looks older and like it might be out of date on the outside, but the inside is newer looking. Excellent stay, no complaints. Grounds, building, staff, room, and breakfast were all top-notch. I highly recommend.

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.

I cannot say enough about the staff of this hotel. It is very close to Maine Med where I have a family member in serious condition. The staff goes out of their way to answer questions and accommodate needs. There is a shuttle that drives guests to the various hospitals, MD appointments and back and forth to the airport, etc....

The Clarion is a great place to go if you are interested in visting the different breweries and staying over night for a great price. Centrally located around Portland with easy access to Bissel, Foundation/Allagash and Old Port. Highly recommend with great staff.

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...

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.
