Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RVDOGS Service top notch
Although the hotel is an older Holidome, the hotel is clean and the customer service is top of the line. Great location off of Interstate 80.

The young man and woman working Friday night, November 1, 2013, were awesome. What a nice way to start our stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Definitely would stay there again.

I enjoy my stay on this hotel, the restaurant is good, the bar is pretty good, staff at the front desk are excellent, restaurant service is really really slow if you have a party more than 3, overall is a good hotel.
Cleanliness can be much better at the rooms, but location for this small town is good, next to some restaurants.

Great stay. Room was clean and the staff was great. I recommend this location to anyone travel I80 and needs a great nights sleep. Plus ample parking and close to restaurants and shopping.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by norwegian39 Not our best Holiday Inn experience
Room was booked by phone through the Priority Club reservations number. Public rooms were elegant on the first floor. But there is no elevator, and our room was up 2 short flights. The room was small (king bed) with no closet, just hooks on the wall. The re-fitted tub/shower was flimsy, with flexible tub bottom underfoot - very unstable for those "of a certain age." At well over $100 for the night, the stay was a disappointment.

Beyond the ease of check-in, there was really nothing positive to say about this location. I am surprised that the walls don't fall in considering they are apparently made of paper, you can heard EVERYTHING, in the other rooms. Twice had to go to front desk to complain about noice from room above us, once at 9pm and again at 2am.
Asked for a room that overlooked interior pool, was given complete opposite. Pool area was colder inside that it was outside, pool water was very cold. Staff did assist us well with our problems but problems should never have been an issue to begin with. Would not stay nor would I recommend this particular location even for one night stay !!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by verysad2 Pool was freezing
I had stayed at this hotel before and so enjoyed the pool. I rebooked it for the pool, but couldn't even get in pool as was so cold. Our room didn't have heat. I couldn't lock the front door. The commode ran. It was not a good night as I had planned on it for my boyfriends birthday. I was so very disappointed.. When I asked the front desk about the pool being cold they said we can turn up the heat, but it didn't get warm the time we were there. Very disappointing.

Clarion HI is the best hotel that we have encountered on our many cross country trips. Rooms were clean and quiet, with pleasant staff. Keep up the good work HI!

Pretty nice pad!!! But heck there was no breakfast!!! McDonald's was down the road so it was cool. The beds were awesome though. The thing is the place was just plain old!! Smelt like if was just worn out. The carpet was beat up and the decor was back in the fifties! Oh yeah they didn't care that i was a IHG member, just another random person.

hair was found in both our beds. Also, I asked for a quiet room
and she put us in the room across from the vending & ice machine!!
Fortunately, she did let us switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ala123 Comfortable, clean and a great value!
We especially enjoyed the fact that we had 2 entrances. One from the hallway and one from the pool. It was nice to have a late night swim and come right into our room, without making the dreaded march through the hotel in our wet bathing suits!

All the staff was friendly, helpful, and eager to please. It was nice to have a restaurant in the hotel so we didn't have to drive anywhere. However, the prices were quite high and the food was just OK. It took a long time to get our food both at supper and at breakfast. The room we stayed in was again just OK - needs some updating but was clean.

Stayed here while moving daughter to new job in SD. Convenient location (near I-80), clean room and appropriate amenities for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CrazyYooper AVERAGE at best.
Room not fully clean. First room had bad odor. Second room had a desk falling apart and mildew on the shower walls. Breakfast was below average with poor service which would explain why an almost full hotel had a beautiful dining room that was empty at 7:30 a.m..

Could not book a room over the phone because the girl didn't have my credit card in front of her. I was driving to the hotel at 9 pm. I needed a place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jobo26 A Great Place to Stay
We love the Holiday Inn in Clarion. We live in St. Louis and drive each summer to the East coast. It's our halfway point both coming and going. It's pet friendly and there is a wonderful golf course right next door where we walk our dogs. The breakfast is an added bonus. The town of Clarion is also perfect. There are several restaurant choices (We like both Applebees and the Chinese restaurant) and a Walmart's is close by in case there are any travel needs. The staff at the Holiday Inn are friendly and attentive. We look forward to being in Clarion at the end of the day.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rjm123Rjm Just a fair to average hotel
We arrived a little after midnight and understandably there was only one person manning the desk. There were several customers in front of me and no area for priority registartion (am a platinum member). When I did get to check-in was recognized as a priority member, however, was given one bottle of water and one granola bar (there were four in my party). When I asked about breakfast was offered a $5 discount coupon. Was a little surprised, as at most properties usually receive a free breakfast when it is not included with room.
When we drove to our room, there was a group of people (not sure if guests or others) partying in the parking lot, fortunately did not hear them in the room.
Room was average at best and the hotel was clearly in need of upgrade.
In sum, I would prefer to use mu points at a holiday inn express property where you usually get a more modern facility, breakfast, and an upgrade when available.

This hotel was in a good location but is in need of updating and major cleaning. It's pretty beat... But it was fine for a quick overnight.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joe72 Very Poor
This was the worst experience I have ever had at a Holiday Inn. The room was VERY out dated. The bed was not comfortable at all. The bathroom was not very clean. There was No Complimentary breakfast.
I would not recommend this particular Hotel to anyone!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kbender Don't stay here
First room stunk so bad had to get different room. Bar service was very poor, the waitress in the dining room were texting because they had no customers but yet the bartender needed help. No coffee in the morning, had to wait least 8 minutes for the waitress to come out to ask for some. Again no customers in the restaurant so the waitress was nowhere to be found. Hotel needs a make over. Poor internet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by XBlue If you must stay in area with a pet, it's tolerable
The room was ok, but getting there was the issue. There was an awful smell walking to the room using the F Door stairwell to the second floor. We arrived after 1am, so I didnt notify front desk until my 8am departure. I had planned to stop and stay on my drive back east, but decided to stay at a different hotel. So i am not certain if they rectified the issue.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mikey24 Stay for leisure, not for work
Stay here a lot but may not be anymore. The hotel is a good value and accommodating if you are traveling through town and need a place to stay.
I do not recommend it for business travel.
The internet service is very poor and as shallow as that sounds, may make me rethink my next stay. Staff says that the internet connectivity has been or is in the process of being upgraded, but I doubt it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BonNJ Hotel needs a facelift
The staff was super friendly and helpful. We originally were given a room that looked over an inside swimming pool and the room smelled of chlorine. Upon our request, they changed the room for us right away. The hotel is tired looking though- the bathroom especially. Very good location- right off of Route 80 and by Applebees for an easy dinner that you can walk to.
However- this is the first Holiday Inn Express that didn't include a quick breakfast in the morning. I should have asked- but never had that before.
Even worse- my daughter and I both ordered scrambled eggs and they were scary looking- brownish- like they didn't change the grease on the griddle. We didn't eat them.
