Clarion Hotel Dunkirk
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Dunkirk
Reviewed 9 October 2017

Closer to a 3.5 but the lake view kicks it up to a 4. I've stayed here a number of times while visiting my daughter at SUNY. The rooms are average but clean. The bathroom is fairly large. The furniture is a bit dinged up. The hallways could use new carpeting. The wallpaper is bubbling in places. The bar area is great and a good place to hang out.(Careful. The bartender pours a heavy drink. I like that!) The restaurant is actually pretty good. I've stayed at the other hotels near the school. I'll keep coming back to this one.

Room Tip: Get lake view if you can swing the extra cost.

in an area with some pretty poor choices, the Clarion is by far the best. Right on the lake, it feels like a vacation even if its a quick trip to visit Fredonia. The breakfast may be average, but the restaurant it is served in is quite attractive. Has a bar and restaurant, and an outdoor pool that seasonally you would actually use. Rooms are fine.

We were in Dunkirk for one day and night only. The hotel is about one mile from Point Gratiot where the reunion was held. Reception and cleaning staff were most pleasant. The room was very clean and generally had everything we needed. There were only two sheets of Kleenex in the box. The bed mattress was high on the sides and lower in the middle making us feel like hot dogs in a bun. There was no way to stopper the water in the tub for a bath. Otherwise there were no difficulties. Breakfast consisted of sausage,eggs (hard boiled or scrambled), toast, muffins, waffles, fruit, juice and coffee. Just right for us. The staff were very friendly and cordial. Check-in and out were very smooth.

Room Tip: They have lake and city view rooms in case that makes a difference.

Stayed here for the night, while attending a family function in town. Hotel is clean. Staff was friendly. Hotel is located directly on lake Erie and has great views. There is an outdoor pool and lounge on site. Close to local attractions and easy to get to. Will stay again.

The first room I got, the room was locked and I couldn't get in. The second room I got, the air conditioner didn't work in the middle of the night and I had to move. The third room I got was perfect. Other than these glitches, my room was clean, the mattress was very comfortable and the service was friendly. Breakfast was basic - scrambled eggs and sausage. The only problem I had was in the second room where the air conditioner broke. In addition to that, the blackout drapes did not close fully. Ended up not mattering since I had to move in the middle of the night due to the a/c, but that would have been very bothersome in the morning. Overall, it's a good hotel and I would stay here again.
