The Clarion is what you would expect for this price range in Portland. The plus to staying at this place is that it takes pets and is close to the Sea Dogs Stadium. So, if the reason you're going to Portland is for a baseball game and you don't need anything special this will do. I was excited about the pool, but it was pretty gross.

Room Tip: If you have pets you end up on the first floor.

If you are traveling via bus (Concord) or train (Amtrak) this hotel is perfect. It is adjacent to the Portland Transportation Centre, easy in, easy out. Rooms were comfortable & clean, not fancy but neither is the price.

As per some reviews I too made my booking through Priceline and felt at the time of booking cheated - certainly after reading the Tripadvisor reviews - and as a result, I was expecting a property far less than we had experienced - however we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were exceptionally professional and friendly and on one occasion went beyond their duty. The lobby is very respectable and the room was nice. The beds comfortable, bathroom up to date and clean. It was very close to the main tourist drag. I felt all in all excellent value for money. I would recommend this property to friends. I would rate it a good 3+ star hotel.

Room Tip: From the mixed reviews, it could suggest there is varying room quality - perhaps useful to check?

Location is great and on the surface, it seems to be a nice business class hotel. When I got off the elevator on my floor, the deodorizer that was attempting to mask a fetid smell overwhelmed me. I have to admit that it was effective enough to confuse me about what the smell was, but it didn't take it away. The room wasn't so bad that I needed to leave (checked in at 10PM and too tired to deal with it). Then I found that the room didn't have a clock or clock-radio. The TV didn't have built-in channel listings. There were no glasses in the bathroom. Although it wasn't a problem for me, there were two bathroom tissue dispensers, each loaded with 1/4 roll of paper. There were no spare rolls. If my room with two queens had been accommodating more people than me, it would be messy. Not appropriate.

These are relatively little things that undermined a very attentive staff and great location. What does management want to do?
