We were in need of lodging and chose this by the description and the pool. The pool was a great feature being within a fully enclosed inner courtyard and decorated with a tropical cabana theme which would be especially GREAT for a Winter visit. A nice tip is that the first floor rooms have access to the inner enclosed courtyard and can easily access the pool area. Ask for them when booking if that is desired.
Room quality was decent, bathroom was a little under standard with mediocre maintenance (rm 222 toilet rocks, caulking is insufficient in tub, grubby along tub edge).
Rather than the standard motel all-you-can-eat buffet fair, this location offered a $20 voucher for purchase at the hotel restaurant for breakfast. There was a buffet option, but there is also a menu that can be ordered from for different options. Kids eat free from a special menu. Food quality was as one would expect from a motel. Tried the eggs Benedict and found them wanting. Stick with the normal American fare and you will not go wrong. Of note is that the service was excellent and management very attentive.
Room Tip: The first floor rooms that face inward towards the courtyard may have easy access to the pool and ca...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisJon Clean, pet friendly, great pool with great access
Have stayed here many times; clean, accomodating, great staff. Pool and court yard area is great. Access to the pool directly from the room is a great feature with kids.

But the facility needs significant maintenance, so don't expect the inside to look as beautiful as the outside of this property. And it is dog friendly!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GroomsAuntie Great place for a reception
Had a wonderful time with family and friends to meet for a wedding and reception in the courtyard. Staff was very accommodating and housed all of us convenient to one another. Beds, nice linens and fluffy pillows were great!!! Best place to stay in Clarion!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by luvmypugcb Horrible, keep on driving.
Our expectations based on other reviews do not apply to this location, must be a mistake. If your looking for a clean place to relax and get some sleep--you will sleep better in your car, seriously. Room charge is that of a 4 star. What you get is a 1 star. Exterior has peeling paint visible from the parking lot.. Lighting is poor and the exterior door does not remain closed. Key cards do not work either. Room is tiny...really tiny. Ceiling has water stains and floor lamp directly below has water stains. The airconditioning does not work. Exterior fire door used as regularly to enter and exit building. As door closes it makes a huge clashing sound. Walls are paper thin. We could hear the family next door. Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. I cannot say one positive thing about this place.

staff was courteous, but if you're on the second floor you feel like you're in a bad neighborhood.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJ42 Friendly Staff and Clean room
When staying in Holiday Inn's we love the breakfast.
Since this Inn has a dining room...no breakfast.
This Inn is "older" which means it didn't have an
elevator, which for older guests, can be a problem.
Though the staff did offer to carry our bags up the
steps, it was still not a good thing.
The Inn was ok but we probably won't stay at this Inn

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tnt 99 a little disappointed
on this trip, we stayed at 4 different Holiday Inns - and the Clarion facility was the only disappointment.. There is a plastic bag with extra blankets and pillows on the coat rack shelf that is growing mold because of the water leak above it . While checking out in the a.m., I discreetly mentioned it to the desk clerk who didn't seem concerned in the least because she didn't even ask the room number.
Management and cleaning staff at this particular location need to pay more attention.
Just a positive note, we ate at the bar that same night and the food was a good value and tasty and the service was very good.

A friend and I recently stayed at the Clarion Holiday Inn for a golf outing, he had a problem with his reservations, and I had a problem with my credit card.
The woman working the front desk was STELLAR!
She helped us with both our issues without the blink of an eye.
You guys have made a BIG fan!

I had a pleasant experience at check-in. Denise could not have been nicer or more helpful. When I got to my room, it smelled fresh and clean and the bed was neatly made. I went for a run in the fitness room. The equipment needs an upgrade. When I went back to my room, I realized that I forgot my key but the maintenance man, John was so nice as to let me into my room. Before I retired for the evening, I went to the bar for a cocktail and had a wonderful conversation with Barbara. The General Manager, Matt came over and asked how my appetizer was and how the service was. The staff is very friendly and I had a very nice stay.

I stayed at this hotel for business and all of my expectations were meet and exceeded. I would like to recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in the area. It is close to other amenities in the local area and was very close to the highway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yosemite Chris My last stop before home, make it a good one!
I had done two Holiday Inns on my 7 week trip out West, so I thought let's do a third one! Good choice and at 5pm or whatever on a Wed. driving from Illinois for about 12 hours I needed to quit. Had great check in, ample parking, quiet room, 2 glasses of wine in the bar; ordered room service. I did sleep very well, getting up early to finish last 500-mile stretch to New England. Very good experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Tired Traveler Makes Good!
I had an excellent stay on my visit. It started out with a wonderful welcome by your reservations person. She was courteous and delightful and had a marvelous sense of humor and she was very helpful to me, especially as tired as I was as a late arrival. My room was very nice and the bed and pillows were so comfy! Everything was clean and neat and I would stay with you again in a heartbeat! Your facility is lovely.
The conference room was done well. I was the trainer and everything was there as requested. It was spacious and provided a comfortable atmosphere for the group who was with me for the day.
Thanks for the comforts for a tired traveler!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sandman3115 Wait until the renovation
Was told an upgrade was not available, yet the parking lot was 3/4 empty. Did everyone come by bus? Asked for breakfast vouchers in lieu of upgrade and was told "that just isn't done." But I did get two bags of trail mix.
A/C was inadequate had to open a window to cool off the room.
Typical old style room with no available outlets near the bed, but a multi-plug accessory under the desk you had to crawl to in order to plug in.
Bathroom was small; no counter space for a toiletry kit.
No elevator in this property, but was offered help to carry my bag up the stairs.
Internet signal was virtually non-existant; had to sit in the bathroom to get at least a single bar of signal.
Booked for a week, checked out after one night.
I understand a renovation is planned for the facility; I suggest you wait until after the renovation to book a room there.

The only comment I would make is they were having a private party and I was told I had to eat in the bar area not the dining room because they were short of help for dining area. Menu was the same, but I prefer dinning room.
