Decent for $100.00

Posted Nov 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed in November and it was great to have live entertainment and restaurant/bar on premises so we didn't have to leave the hotel. The hotel room was clean and a little updated. Would be nice to have a minifridge/bar with bottled water. The elevators take a really long time and seem a little off kilter. The restaurant and bar are extremely overpriced. Very outdated. The wait staff at the restaurant was lacking in many different aspects.

review of Clarion

Posted Nov 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
The location was great as I was taking a class at the Ocean City Art league on 94th. The hotel was fine except for the very noisy air conditioner. I had trouble sleeping because of that but assumed all rooms were the same so did not mention it to staff.

I'm sorry that the AC unit caused you unrest. We are in the process of upgrading our AC units, and I hope you visit with us again to see the progress we've made.

Not really a balcony

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Room was nice, service great but they advertise a balcony!!! Not at all it's a 2 foot out rail . Just should say what it is in advertisement

Jimmy, I'm sorry that the balcony didn't meet your expectations. We advertise a standing balcony, and that's what the guestrooms have. If you want a full balcony, we offer one, two, and three bedroom suites that have large oceanfront balconies at our sister property, Marigot Beach Suites, which is right next door to the hotel. Thank you, Stephanie

Very good------------but some things to address

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: - nice staff/easy check in and check out - wonderful hallway windows to watch the sunrise - nice rooms - instant access to beach
Cons: - balcony smaller than phone booth - staff at sports bar was horrendous----an hour wait with no apology - food WAY over-priced
Location: Good sports bar (Green Frog) nearby. Library across the street.
My wife and kids and I stayed last weekend in conjunction with a visit to Assateaque. The first problem is that there is a hotel entrance and convention center entrance. That needs to be made more clear to incoming new patrons. The front desk staff was terrific. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and they were very helpful with local recommendations. Pool was excellent. Warm, clean, plenty of towels and chairs. Wife and kids loved it One of the few hotel pools with a deep section. Suitable for lap swimming if at off hours. Elevators were quick and spatious. We were on 15th floor so that was a must. Room grade is a B. While clean and nice decor (high on my wife's priority list), the balcony was a joke. Smaller than a phone booth. No room to sit. AC system was great for temperature control, but louder than a freight train. Scared the kids. TV was very good. Beach access gets an A++. Right out the back door from pool and patio with a nice trail thru the dunes. 2 shower and footwashers as you come back. Dining gets a F. WAY OVERPRICED! Went to sports bar to get appetizers for family. Waited over an hour and never heard a thing. No apologies or anything. Plenty of parking and right on the beach on Coastal highway on north side of town. Less than a mile from any shopping or food needs. For what we paid I guess I can't complain. For a purely beach-oriented visit we'd stay there again.

Very close to the beach, large rooms

Posted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: Room size, pet friendly, cleanliness, great staff
Cons: Maybe new carpets and an updated bathroom would make it feel much more modern.
Location: The hotel is literally on the beach.
We were met at reception by very friendly staff. The room was a great size and even had a balcony. We'd booked a room with 'no view' because the hotel was very busy and that was all that was left, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a great view of the sea from our balcony. The room was very clean and comfortable, just starting to look a little dated in places (wallpaper in a bathroom...).
