We're glad you were able to celebrate Valentine's Day with us. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding regarding the view; the hotel is oceanfront with ocean view rooms. We appreciate your business and hope you visit with us again soon.

Hoped that The Clarion would be better than the dated impression I had of it before staying under its roof however may be worse. Flashing board out front caters to "quantity over quality" 90s American mentality and is still stuck in the 90s in every regard. Walking in feels like there should be a seedy casino- Needs a face lift....

The hotel staff were professional. Rooms were clean and the ocean view was nice. Happy Hour prices hard to beat. The indoor pool area a little small. The restaurant staff was very quick and the food was delicious.

The staff are all wonderful. My room was spacious and clean. Access to the beach was lovely. Jackie in the Executive Office was a great help! I was there for an event and check in was made very easy. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Unfortunately check-in took 30 minutes, not because the front desk was busy but due to the lack of training, professionalism etc... the male rep had no idea how to check folks in.

Was here this past weekend for a large group event. We brought our dog & was assigned to the dog floor. The room was not as clean as I expected, the corner still smelled of urine from a previous visitor. The bed was awful, when you laid down it sunk in the center. The room was poorly lit.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience of our guests being stuck in the elevator for 35 minutes. I'm sure it seemed like much longer.
