We stayed at the Clarion when we were visiting our son at college for the weekend. It was the last resort as we were visiting on a holiday weekend and every other place was booked or very expensive. The hotel is in a decent part of town. Check in was quick and the room was easy to find. Much like...

Here for Vassar graduation. The bad: Toilet didn't flush, but they did fix it quickly. Wallpaper peeling, water damage visible on ceiling. Water temp in shower variable, when not expected. TV old model. Breakfast included but everything super sweet, except for rubbery sausage patties and soggy scrambled eggs. The good: beds and pillows. Won't stay here again.

We stayed here for our daughter's graduation from college. If it were not graduation weekend we NEVER WOULD have stayed here but everywhere else was booked. The rooms have not been updated in over 20 years. The sheets were very thin, there were holes in the sheer curtains, and cracks in mirrors. This hotel is very run down and needs...

After booking through Expedia on a discount not knowing the name of hotel, I then read the reviews of the Clarion here. I was afraid I had made a terrible mistake. I have done this through Expedia before and was very satisfied. The hotel was very good! Yes the hallway rug looked old, yes the hall ceiling was missing a...

Mold and Disrepair I attended a conference here, but chose to eat and sleep elsewhere because I read the reviews. Thank goodness for Tripadvisor. After seeing the common areas of the hotel, I shudder to think what the sleeping rooms are like. The property appears to have a serious moisture problem. One of the ladies rooms has mold growing up...

Although the people working there were very nice, the place was very shabby and run down. It was almost as if someone had tried to take over but didn't really know how to do it. We were there for a weekend conference. The same food was served all weekend and was not good. They kept running out, as well. Our...

True the place needs WORK, no refrigs, no microwaves, no balconies,no elevator. Expect to do some walking to your room. But housekeeping was right on top of things, even called the room every day to see if I needed service and If they could clone Jeanine at the front desk she was terrific. The other front desk people need to...

Awful. It seemed okay at first until I turned the corner. It was run down and old but not too bad. Then I opened the door... There was an abundance of toenail clippings on the floor by the bed. The floor appeared to have been vacuumed eons ago, if that. There was even a tampon wrapper on the floor. There...

I stayed here with my family and the rooms were average, the TV was outdated (we stayed in a double queen non-smoking). The refrigerator DID NOT work at ALL it was actually hot inside it. Room service people were nice the first time I stayed, the second time I told her we were leaving in 5 minutes and I was...

The lobby qualifies, but the stains on the walls, smelly hallways and peeling wallpaper make the hotel's 3-star rating a sham.
