“What a nice surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

My husband and I were in our small plane flying from Orlando to Aspen. We decided to land and spend the night in Garden City. The Owner of this Clarion, Mr Samy, picked us up at the airport and took us to his hotel. We, however did not know he was the "franchise owner".

The hotel was beautiful. Our room was of the "Four Season's" caliber. Great bed, numerous pillows (soft and hard), large flat screen TV and beautiful bedding. The property is immaculate. We enjoyed a full breakfast which was included in our room rate.There is a great restaurant in the hotel, which is rated one of the best in Garden City.

We will certainly stop and stay with Mr. Samy and his staff the next time we are anywhere near Garden City, KS.

Room Tip: The hotel is non-smoking. Our room was a King Bed.

This place was absolutely no good! The "pool side" room we got wasn't even pool side, more like to the side of the pool. The sliding glass door made it so everyone could see into your room, and let in the horrible music they were playing in the bar/restaurant. On top of it all they didn't let us know till we got there that the pool was closed till June 1st (it's an indoor pool!) The place looked like it was still from the 70's and not updated any fixtures or anything in the bathroom. The walls were paper thin and you could hear anyone walk by, anyone in their room and even heard the man above us peeing. The maids were very loud in the morning starting at 5am slamming doors and talking right outside our door. To top it all off we got home and were charged a $500 smoking fee. (We are fighting this) Neither one of us smoke, never have. We have called plenty times to resolve this and still no answers. Seems convenient to charge out-of-towners this for you have no way to fight it! On the only positive note - the beds were comfy (but maybe we will be charged a fee for that as well) Will NEVER be back - no matter what is offered.

Dear Artemus80525,

Thank you for leaving your thoughts about your recent stay at the Garden City Clarion Inn and Conference Center. It is our goal to exceed the expectations of every guest. We are sorry you were not satisfied with the placement of your room but we do consider all rooms that open up to the pool as pool side rooms. Each pool side room also has a blinding shade allowing maximum room concealment ensuring 100% privacy for guests. And since we do not have any live entertainment or DJ during the week, I’m not sure which music was being filtered into your room. We are sorry about the inconvenience of the pool being closed until June 1st but necessary maintenance on the pool caused the closure, it was decided that since we primarily have business travelers throughout the week that would be the best and most accommodating time to fix pool issues, the pool was closed a total of five days. The housekeeping staff does not begin cleaning until at least 8 am daily and we cannot control the coming and going of early guests especially since they were most likely at the hotel on business and needed to leave early.
As per the smoking policy that you signed, you were charged $500 for smoking marijuana in the hotel room. The smell was confirmed by housekeeping, management and maintenance. You were called back by 10:30 am the following day and have received numerous emails and phone calls through our management team and Choice Hotels.
As a stated, it is our goal to exceed the expectations of every guest and in order to do that we MUST maintain a no tolerance drug free environment and uphold the highest standards. We pride ourselves on being a Platinum Award winning level hotel for last 5 years and the number Clarion Inn hotel in the nation for four years in a row. I assure you, we are just as disappointed in your behavior.

Good value for the price. Full service breakfast is great, staff is pleasent. Louge staff stayed extra long to accomodate our group well past posted closing time. Entire staff worked hard to make the stay enjoyable. I would stay again for business or personal travel.

We were on a long term assignment in the area and stayed at the Clarion Hotel in Garden City. They have won numerous awards for their hotel and they are well deserved.The staff is great and very accomodating. The hotel has a restaraunt, possibly the best in town. Great steaks. They provide guests with free breakfast every morning and free soup and salad in the evenings except Sunday. They also have a great brunch every Sunday complete with a carving station, pasta station, eggs cooked to order, waffels, crepes and great desserts. This is a must if you are there on Sundays. The hotel has an indoor pool and fitness center. The hotel is also pet friendly. We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: I would recomend you ask for a room with a view to outside vs the lobby. They have a large inside ar...

An overnight at the Clarion provides a good getaway. The front desk was very friendly and assigned us a room on the second floor. We found it very clean and comfortable. We headed down to dinner past the indoor courtyard and pool. The restaurant was busy but still provided good service and food. The filet mignon with a twice baked potato was wonderful. The salmon was broiled but overdone. It was well seasoned but a little dry. Cheesecake was in order for desert. We has a choice of strawberry, blueberry or turtle. All were good. The bartender mixed a great margarita and offers a generous pour.

This Clarion is was clean and comfortable. It would have been a bit expensive had I not recieved a discount because of the reason I was there. Staff was friendly and best of all, no bedbuugs. I always check now, just my obsession I guess. :-)

I can't speak highly enough of the accommodations, staff, and the food & beverage at the Clarion Inn in Garden City. I stay there even when my business is in one of the surrounding communities. I stay on business normally, but have also brought the family and they enjoyed as well. Highly RECOMMEND.
