It was only a 1 day stay thank goodness. Dead bugs and excretions on window sills. Desk chair did not work. They replaced it with a regular 4 legged chair. Phone did not work and was never fixed. Had to walk to service desk for everything. Pool temperature was ice cold. Breakfast was chaos. Bath mat was dingy.

The price was right as we needed two rooms for Parents Weekend. The rooms, hall, lobby all were clean. Room keys worked for the rooms, parking was easy to access rooms without walking through Lobby. Bedding clean white, plenty of towels. The bed was in need of replacement, very spongy. The hall noise and parking lot noise was noticeable. Breakfast...

From the moment you arrive at this hotel you know that is not going to be on par with some of their other facilities. Our check-in went smooth and we were given key cards for our room. To access the second floor they staff member suggested we go around to the rear parking lot. The lots were not the newest...

One of our keys did not work to enter with our luggage. The room had a very musty smell. the halls were not clean. The display of brochures in the lobby was almost empty. No coffee in the lobby and no cookies in the evening at 8 PM. Breakfast the next morning. Most of the serving trays were empty. No...

Needed a nice place that was central to all we planned on doing. Clarion fit the bill nicely. Room was spacious, no issues with Wifi, staff was courteous & welcoming. Breakfast was nicely done, with scrambled eggs, potatoes, french toast sticks, bacon, sausage, waffles, yogurt, pastries of all sorts, cereal, oatmeal, 4 kinds of juice (loved the peach) & bananas,...

First the hotel staff was rude and seemed annoyed. Second, went into my room the tub was gross, my kids were scared to take a shower in it. Then one of the beds had white stains on the bed skirt. The pool area was dirty and there was hair and dirty towels everywhere. Additionally, I left one day earlier because...

I had a seemingly endless set of issues. When I checked in, there was only one person manning the desk. She had two phone calls in progress plus needed to check in two parties. About ten minutes after finally getting into my room, the other group of guests behind me at check in opened my door. Apparently overwhelmed employee got...

As you approach this hotel (which is conveniently located to many things) the front of the hotel is quite attractive....we were directed to drive around the back which was more convenient to the location of our room....Total about-face...the back of the property is overgrown and badly in need of some love.....cigarette butts litter the back entrance and..surprise..NO ELEVATOR....maybe for younger...

Stay at this hotel one night. Check in was fast and staff was friendly and respectful. Our room was clean and very comfortable. It was very quiet and linens were of good quality, pillows were also very good. This hotel is a good option when visiting CT. Good value for the price.

Many hotels/motels in the Mystic-Groton-Norwich-Uncasville area are just okay or subpar. The Clarion was just okay, which actually is paying it a compliment. I've been to other Choice hotels that seemed better managed. The workout room was like an icebox, the indoor pool was unheated, the complimentary breakfast was underwhelming. That being said, the room I had was roomy with...
