“Worthy of another review”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

I have stayed here a couple times in the past and had done one prior review. My last stay started off with an unworthy employee at check in trying to multi - task with the phone and several people checking in...This time I encountered Cheryl....literally one of my best experiences ever...I booked on line which I screwed up and had to call them directly to get straightened out, so I had her on the phone and she was also working when I got there...She was fast, efficient and friendly....recognized my hotel membership offered upgrade and covered eating establishments in area...I had a king bed room which was on the top floor, it was on the older side for furniture and decorations but had everything I was looking for..quiet, comfortable bed, coffee pot, flat screen and a nice hot shower and most of all Clean...all at a good price from AAA.....

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Clarion a number of times over the past few years. It is centrally located within a region of western Wisconsin that I travel within. Here are the good things- it is clean. The beds are comfortable. There is a restaurant. There is a bar. There is a nice pool. The staff is friendly. The cons? It shows it's age. Peeling paint. Tired carpets. Hollow doors. The hotel is used by many youth groups (circus world) and by the Casino Crowd, so if your sensitive you may be offended from both extremes. Overall ..... Average.

Dear a place to lay your head,
I would like to Thank you for the time you took to fiull out the guest survey. We review every week with our staff about the review we recieve and go through them to see if we can improve on our service. I am not understanding what you are telling me about groups. But yes we cater to groups and appreciated them coming to us. Circus World Museum is a locate attraction theat we are very happy that is located in Baraboo and also Ho Chunck Casino .This attraction bring people to a town of 12480 peole We love it very much.
As for carpet in hallways and rooms they were all prepalce two years ago. Yes we are a older hotel but have been in the last 13 years remodeled three times . We are always upgrading and now we are adding refrigerator to our .rooms. Again thank you for your review hope to see you again

Went on New Years Eve as it was cheaper than staying at the casino. The pool was warm which was real nice and the hot tub was perferct. Did not use the restaurant for dinner but they (hotel) give you a coupon for $4 off your breakfast at the restaurant. Had better selection than deals where breakfast is included in the lobby for free but expensive and really was not that great!
Room was clean and service at the front desk was quick and they were polite.

Stayed for two nights in October 2013. Don't be fooled by the "Clarion" in the name as we were. Although Clarion hotels are part of the Choice Hotel family, this one must be independently owned. Shame on Choice Hotels for not inspecting a property their name is on.

Expensive for what we got. Dumpy room, barely clean. Rusty fixtures in bathroom. No free breakfast (did get a $4 per person coupon off the in hotel restaurant )

Not a dime has been put into this place in years. If I had paid $59 per night, maybe. $150 per night, never again. I guess there was a home Wisconsin Badger BB game - the reason for the jacked up price. Note to owner: you may want business other times of the year, so don't try to make all your money during BB season.

This was a last minute thought for my significant other and two friends. It was average at best and a good thing we went to the circus Museum or it would have probably been a crappy night. Hotel was not worth what they were charging and to have two pay it helped ease the pain. I may try again but want to call and make sure they have staff that know how to move stuff and clean this time. I will always give a second chance unless first time can never be repaired!!

We booked at the last minute through Hotwire, and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was spacious and clean, and the pool was very, very nice. The breakfast in the morning is the kind where you get a voucher for the on-site restaurant. We took advantage of that and it was standard, solid diner-type food. No complaints.

Room Tip: Pool is on the 4th floor, so book accordingly.

Stayed here a few times. Nice clean motel with friendly staff. Received a call in our room from the front desk asking if everything was satisfactory. I don't think that's ever happened before. Stayed on 5th floor this time because I forgot the swimming pool was on 4th floor. Elevators were slow because of a wedding party. Might want to request 4th floor if you intend to use the pool a lot. Lots of chairs and tables in pool area. They used to offer free breakfast here, but no longer do. Instead they offer a $4.00 off coupon to eat at the Glacier Rock restaurant which is just off the lobby of the hotel. We decided to use our coupons for breakfast. Took a long time to get our food because of the wedding party eating breakfast at same time. The waitress said there were about 40 people in the wedding party (which they seated in a separate room) and apologized for the delay. Small portions (for the price) and was still a little expensive even with $8.00 off. We have ordered room service pizza and chicken wings from this restaurant before (different time) and the food was very good. Overall a nice stay.

Room Tip: Request 4th floor if using the pool.
