I booked at Clarion, because my regular hotel, Best Western Seaway (located next door) was booked due to concerts and teen sporting competitions being held the same weekend.

Checking in was no problem; the room was clean and nice. Compared to the Best Western, there is less furniture, so the room feels larger. The bed was quite comfortable, and had four or five pillows on the bed to choose from. Hot water in the shower was good, except that they should change the shower head.

I only have two negatives comments and neither would prevent me from staying here again. The water at Clarion is filtered so much that it is "soft", which for most people is a positive! For me, I never feel like I can wash the soap completely off, or get the shampoo completely out of my hair.

My other negative comment is about the breakfast in the morning. Although the Best Western next door has a more complete breakfast, the Clarion's was adequate. My complaint was they choose to serve fried eggs instead of scrambled on the first morning I was there. Considering that the hotel was mostly filled with parents with kids, I was surprised that they chose fried eggs. I watched over a dozen people look and then skip having eggs that day. IMO a bad choice for a younger clientele. The second morning was back to scrambled eggs and they were cooked well. The sausage was tasty, the bagels were fresh, and the coffee tasty.

Front desk staff was polite. No complaints at all. There is a small work-out gym downstairs by the elevator that has two treadmills and a few weight machines for use by the guests at no extra charge.

Internet worked well in the room I was in. There was also two bottles of free drinking water in the room.

Room Tip: Normally I prefer ground floor rooms where you can drive up to the door. However, you might want to...

Beds soft, breakfast good. Pretty noisy and thin walls--- lots of traffic outside but this is a gambling town, and people come and go at all hours. Coffee and fridge available in room. Good room for the price

This was our first stay at a Clarion. Great location- close to interstate and short drive to beach. Rooms were clean. Basketball tournament in town with lots of teams staying here tonight, but NO PROBLEM with breakfast. Staff provided impressive quantity & quality of food to satisfy everyone.

The Clarion Inn is an ideal motel for the traveler who wants easy access to the rooms. The rooms were pleasant and are equipped with refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and other nice amenaties. Coffee and tea is available all day at the office and they offer a very nice breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and a variety of continental items. Instead of utilizing one small inconvenient old former bedroom for their breakfast service, as some motels have done, they went to the expense of knocking out the walls between four rooms to create a very nice and spacious area for their customers to enjoy breakfast. When we checked in, two fighter jets roared overhead as they landed at the neardy airport and I was concerned that the airport would be a problem. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the Clarion was actually very quiet in the rooms. We had a goodnight's sleep. Be aware that the driveway into the hotel is easily accessable if one is coming from the freeway but it is impossible to get to from the other direction unless you go up the boulevard and turn arround.

Some friends and I stayed her overnight on March 22nd-23rd and it was wonderful. The rooms were pretty spacious and very clean. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We booked through Priceline and got the free breakfast which was pretty good: eggs, ham, sausage links, fried links, waffles (you make yourself) orange, apple and cranberry juice. We were literally 5 mins from the beach and near lots of restaurants. We most definitely would stay here again.
