Recently spent two nights here. The room was very comfortable, and the staff, especially Joshua were very helpful.

This was our 3rd trip to Ontario; our 1st staying at the Clarion Inn. We'd been searching for just the right accomodations when Jamie from the Country Kitchen Restaurant referred us to Janine at the Clarion. Melissa from housekeeping kindly showed us one of their king rooms. I spoke later with GM Jason, who extended us every possible courtesy and found us the very best rates their facility could offer. Upon arrival, all was in order. Every staff member was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculate and kept that way consistently during our 3-night stay by April in housekeeping. It was far above our expectations. This will be our only place to stay on upcoming visits. Thank you Jason for all you did for us and your staff, as well. Be seeing you again soon and most looking forward to it....Vic and Sandy Kitts

We stayed at this Clarion for two nights. I was in the area to do one day's work in Parma, idaho, about 18 miles away. When we got up on the day I was to work, our car had a busted water pump, so there was no way I could drive to Parma. I asked Bob, the clerk at the motel registration desk, to call a cab for me. Bob hesitated. He said the local cabs were unreliable and that a ride to Parma would be extremely expensive. So he volunteered to take me over there himself. Which he did do. That's probably the best service I ever got from any hotel or motel staff member in over 25 years of virtually constant travel. And the hotel itself is extremely nice, too. It' appears to be very new, is clean and comfortable. It is dog friendly and charges one small pet fee, even if you have two pets and no matter how long you are going to stay. The restaurant isn't anything to write home about, but there's nothing really wrong with it and at least the motel does have a restaurant.

Room Tip: I don't think it makes much difference where you are in this motel. There is no noisy bar. The...

Nice entrance, helpful staff, rooms are small, wall paper torn, patched and full of holes. Showers have lots of old caulking, remodel yet to be done. New looking carpet, beds were comfortable, parking close to room. Not a 3 star as advertised. Lots of 18 wheelers parked in area behind hotel that run all night. Very noisy if a light sleeper. lParking noise reminds you of a Motel 6. When pulling in registration area, almost side swiped and run over by an employee raceing into front of hotel.

Room Tip: Check out room location in relationship to truck parking area in back of hotel. You can feel the vi...

I traveled clear across country, stopping in Boston and DC, with lots of motel stays along the way. This was my last stop before making it back home to Oregon. I totally loved this place. They were very pet and people friendly. The room felt clean and comfy. I'd rate this one as the best of all the places I stayed during 3+ weeks on the road.

Room Tip: I reserved a pet friendly room early afternoon. I was given one where I could just step outside the...

Of the many motels my wife and I stayed at during our two weeks on the road out west, this Clarion Inn stands out. The desk clerk cheerfully accepted our discount coupon--that in itself was a welcome change. There was a freshness about the room, the linens and all, that was a welcome change as well. There was an ethernet connection in the room that hooked right into my laptop, giving me great, instant internet access. A plug-in internet connection that works and works well? Wonderful.

The hotel grounds map given to us had a map of the city on the flip side, a nice touch, particularly since we needed to find a laundromat. The clerk gave us accurate directions of where to find one. This hotel didn't have some of the amenities we got at other hotels, a free continental breakfast for one, but after a week of biscuits and gravy and often stale pastries, we were ready for a real breakfast. That worked out well too since I really enjoyed my German sausage and cheese omelet at the Ox-Bow restaurant in Bliss, Idaho. But that's another story.

I see other travelers have not rated this hotel as highly. If they had stayed in some of the lesser quality inns we did this trip, I think they would agree that the Clarion is superior. We liked the town too.
