“A Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

I did not have high hopes for this hotel after reading the reviews and since it was a one night pit stop, I just wanted it to be clean. They are renovating it so it was so nice. Room redone. Bright, large, everything new. The toilet still had the label on the side as did the shower curtain. The bathroom might have been redone very recently. We had a King bed and sleep couch for the kids, which they love. There was a keurig machine in the room which was such a nice surprise. The restaurant was being renovated so it was closed, but it did not matter since there are about 10 restaurants within a mile. The front desk staff, who was above and beyond nice, complimented my children and recommended great places to eat and go. The pool was warm and open convenient hours. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, which we don't mind, but if you have a lot of heavy luggage you may want t...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are very glad that you came and stayed with us at our hotel and that you have noticed our upgraded rooms. We have been working hard to make sure our guests are satisfied with their rooms. Our added upgrades, such as the Keurig coffee makers, ensure that our guests feel at home when they stay with us. Your kind words about the staff will serve as encouragement as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services to provide our guests with exceptional experiences. Our onsite restaurant will be opening the beginning of October so we hope that if you are ever in the area again you come back and see us and enjoy some Irish pub fare.

We only stayed here one night but it was one of the best Choice Hotels we've ever been too. The staff was extremely friendly always have fresh baked cookies. The place looked to be recently renovated so it was really nicely looking. Having the laundromat was the biggest plus after being on a road trip for already 2 weeks. The room was clean and everything felt fresh. We would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, even if it was only for one night. The fresh baked cookies offered daily are a big hit with all of our guests. The onsite laundry does come in handy for our longer term guests and we are glad you were able to utilize it while you were here. Again we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

We spent several nights here while visiting family in the area, and were extremely pleased with the accommodations and the staff. The hotel itself is located within easy driving range of practically everything you could want or need -- restaurants, gas stations, shopping, entertainment, major highways. The hotel was scheduled to be the site of a wedding while we were there, & the staff was thoughtful enough to give us a room away from all the reception activity & the wedding party's block of guestrooms -- so we could be assured 'peace & quiet'. We enjoyed the use of their nice, large indoor pool with our grandchildren, and made use of their clean & modern laundry facility while there. The accommodations, AND those accommodating people, were #1in our opinion!!

We stayed at the Clarion so that we could go to the Seekonk Speedway and also a baseball game in Pawtucket, RI. It was convenient to both venues. The price was right, the hotel is clean and they have excellent customer service. The staff is very friendly and helpful over the phone and in person.

The breakfast was OK. Though there were enough choices from hot and cold dishes, the food was nothing to rave at.

They have a big indoor pool but we didn't get to try it, though it looked very nice.

They also have a lovely outdoor space with a garden and a gazebo.

Water with lemon slices was available in the lobby at all times.

Though the lobby appears somewhat dated (it used to be a Ramada hotel), the rooms were fine. If you want a refrigerator/microwave you need to request the business section in the back of the hotel, where it also is very quiet.

Parking lot is large so you will always get a spot. There is a gas station next door and the hotel is on the main drag. There are many chain fast food restaurants as well as TGIFridays, Paneras and other restaurants down the road about 1/2 mile. There is also a Rite Aid nearby.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We do have the largest indoor heated pool in the area and we're sorry you didn't get any time to enjoy it. Our outdoor space with gardens, gazebo and fireplace is a nice retreat after a long day. The lobby is getting a face lift in the near future so we hope you are able to come back to the area to see the changes. Our central location to shopping and restaurants is a big plus to any traveler. We hope to see you in the future!

The cleanest, quietest, hotel I have stayed in for a long while. Keurig coffee pots in every room, whew whew!! Daily news paper every day, whew whew... Friendly staff, will do anything for you. Anything you might need is a few minutes away. Plenty of shopping nearby. Soon to open restaurant on the premises. Whats not to like? There wasnt anything I didnt like. I was there for 6 wonderful days for a family reunion.

Our family stayed here on a recent trip to New York and were extremely pleased with the entire experience, from the easy check in, nice hotel appearance, clean, spacious room, in a neighbourhood with a lot of family friendly restaurants nearby. The continental breakfast was the best of our entire stay, mmmm, cheesy eggs! The staff at night and in the morning were very helpful and pleasant, and we went on our way refreshed and well taken care of!
