Got a great deal on HotWire. After reading several reviews I set my expectations pretty low. I will agree that I am questioning on this being a 3 star level but this is something that most of the discount web sites does is over rate hotels. Was pleasantly surprised with my stay. The room itself was huge and clean. Yes...

We were driving from Sturgis SD to Niagara Falls and needed to stop - the hotel had a room available at 1:00 am - desk staff was friendly and helpful. Room was large, clean and AFFORDABLE (military rate-thank you!). Good sized bathroom. Excellent breakfast included in price of room-plus they offer bacon!!!!!!

The hotel was dirty. Also, the walls are extremely thin. I think that says enough. Couldn't sleep because I could here everyone in adjacent rooms...and I mean everything. Please don't make the mistake of coming here.

Front desk folks are friendly but you need to re-think the hostess in the dining room. Extremely rude. Rooms are disgusting. Hallways reek of smoke. Stairwell smells like urine. Unfortunately there aren't many choices to stay in this area. We will drive 30 minutes out of way before staying here again.

The people at the front desk were very nice. The rooms were average on cleanliness with old decor and average sized with a very small bathroom. The breakfast bar was minimal but the coffee was good. All around an economy experience. If you are traveling on a budget and need a place to sleep then the Clarion is for you....

Smell of smoke as soon as you entered into the lobby. Carpets were dirty and a musty spell. The room was on the third floor. It was a king size bed but old fashioned almost sitting on the floor it was so low. The air conditioner was loud and hard to set. Heard it all night long. The bathroom and...

We recently stayed at the Joliet Clarion while in town for the NASCAR Race. We go every year but this was the first time at this hotel.

This hotel is convenient to I-80 if traveling that direction. The staff was exceedingly friendly and accommodating. The room was large and clean (except for the tub). When booking online, be sure and specify a non-smoking room. We arrived to find they had assigned us a smoking room but the staff, fortunately, were able to change us to another room....
