Happily surprised by this hotel and conference center. Easy parking and enough of it. Easy navigating throughout the site making it easy to go from meeting rooms to dining and to your own hotel room. Staff friendly very helpful and knowledgeable. Hotel room was pleasant with wonderful water view. Conference luncheon was quite good and delivered without delay. All in... More

I recently came back from a conference that took place in Ocean City, MD. I stayed at the Clarion. I would say overall it was an OK hotel. The best thing was the bartenders at the hotel bar.... very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The food at the conference was just OK. I would go back, but not... More

This hotel is sad. Most of the prior reviews are correct; dated decor, filthy rugs, sketchy wi-fi and dark, worn rooms. Holes in the walls, walls in desperate need of painting and rugs that have see better days. The one thing that saved the hotel was the staff. Everyone i encountered was really friendly and helpful. If these people had... More

I stayed for a conference. The rooms were dated and not very clean.

This hotel could uses a little TLC. Staff is great but I have been going to this hotel every year in Oct for an event and it never changes. The restaurant for sure needs updating on the breakfast buffet. It is pricey and blah.

I stayed a few days at the clarion for a car show and was a little disappointed with the so called free wifi. It took forever to get it to work, through no help from the service desk. When I finally got connected my speed was 0.06 Mbps, I believe dial up was quicker than that. It kept timing out... More

We're so sorry that circumstances occurred that would make you want to stay elsewhere. We had no other reports of trouble with the WiFi that week/weekend. I'm sorry the desk wasn't able to help, as they are usually very adept with technical difficulty. Of course, there was no excuse for the security agent to not change the battery. Again, please...

Stayed here for my 50th high school reunion. Rooms weren't very clean. Prices in lounges were high as hell! $19.45 for one drink and one beer, because there was a 3rd rate local band playing.

We're sorry there were aspects of your stay that you didn't enjoy. Of course everyone is entitled to their own tastes and opinions, but the band playing when you were here is actually very much in demand all along Delmarva; however, we're sorry that they weren't to your musical taste. Our bands rotate, and perhaps the next time you're in... More

Medium sized hotel that has been here a while. And though the decor in the main areas is dated, the place is clean and the staff is friendly. Rooms are normal size and updated, with the bath rooms a little on the small size. Double Beds are not queens size and may be tight to fit two adults. Most rooms... More

I stay here frequently due to the conference facilities. I have to say my last experience was poor. However, the front deck manager, Gerri, has restored my confidence.
