We stayed at this Clarion hotel on the tail end of a vacation to Canada and Maine. Normally, we stay in 4 or 5 star hotels but were watching the budget at the end of our trip. This Clarion was a very pleasant surprise. The outside is a bit dreary but then the area was actually a bit dreary overall. Inside, the staff and the atmosphere made this one of the best hotels that we've stayed in this year. The check in staff are nice, helpful, and welcoming. They have maps and brochures at the check in desk as well as refreshments (lemonade and crackers). They have 3-4 coffee carafes on a side table in the evening with all the condiments anyone might want. There are oil paintings on the wall that are very well done and in great taste. The restaurant and bar area is past the check in desk and smells wonderful. It never appeared very busy but not completely dead either. I had a glass of wine from the bar that was excellent. The rooms are pleasant and clean. Similar to one you might stay in at a Sheraton or Hyatt. The Wi-Fi is free and has a great connection which is EXTREMELY important on a vacation and is NOT the case at many of the fancier hotels. We did not eat at the hotel but it 'looked' and smelled good from a distance.
