Canton, Michigan
Reviewed 16 September 2016 via mobile

Hotel is decent for the price. Sleeping rooms were clean and adequate. No frills. The hotel is very old and could use a remodel. Surprised that this caliber of hotel does not offer free breakfast. For the price I would probably suggest another more updated hotel.

Found the room to be clean and pleasantly decorated.The staff was excellent and provided to town and return shuttle service which was a real plus. The bed was comfortable, had a quiet good night's sleep. Would and will return.

Next to the bus/amtrak station. A short drive to the Old Port for delicious food and shopping and a short drive to the mall area. The hotel is older, out dated carpets and a very slow elevator that could use ac, but for a short visit, it was satisfactory. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Breakfast buffet ($9.95 pp)- average...

Portland, Maine
Reviewed 7 September 2016

The Clarion is conveniently located near the Portland Bus/Train station. It is a great place to stay overnight before catching the early bus to Logan Airport. The staff is friendly and courteous and the room was clean. The early morning wake-up call worked perfectly for us. It's a little pricey for what it is, but we would stay here again.

Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Beds seemed more full size than queen. Plenty of pillows and blankets. Bathroom was exceptionally small, but clean and did the trick!! Hot shower was nice after traveling all day. Restaurant closes at 10. Ten minute drive back into downtown Portland.

The location is okay and convenient enough to downtown Portland. The staff is relatively friendly. These are the only positives of this hotel. We've been staying here for the past few days for vacation. The rooms are gross. Bedspreads are stained, there are gross (feces?) stains on the back of the curtains. The hotel is pet friendly and the room...

We later moved to the first floor to be closer to an exit. That room smelled like dirty feet. The toilet in the bathroom weeped so badly that...

So it was a last minute decision to drive down to Portland and it being the busy summer, we had few choices for hotels. I got the Clarion on booking.com and paid around $210 CDN a night. We didn't know what to expect but were greatly surprised. I called ahead to tell them it would be a late check in...

This hotel was just alright. Nothing special. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful, especially with his recommendations for dinner. I question the security and safety. The side entrance did not seem secure.
