Bed was very uncomfortable .................older hotel. Chipping wallboard around tub

I loved the location had a good time why at hot springs

Nasty and overpriced. There were bodily fluids on comforter. Old hotel and poorly renovated.

What a letdown. Requested a king bed w jacuzzi, got the bed but no jacuzzi. Christmas party on floor above was so loud that I called front desk (9:50 pm) and was informed "it should be winding down soon". At 11:10 it was still going strong. After the music quit there were drunks in the hallway slamming doors and hollering until a bit past 11:30. Checked out the next morning because this was not the relaxing getaway I planned. Front desk informed me they could not issue a refund on unused night because it was booked through Orbitz. Contacted Orbitz customer service who were also unsuccessful at obtaining a refund. Evidently Clarion needs all the money they can keep. Btw, no continental breakfast, but you can purchase one in the restaurant/bar.

Specifically requested room w lake view AND whirlpool tub when I booked room. None were available when I got there. Christmas party on floor above me kept music blaring past 11 pm. Partygoers hollering n slamming doors til 11:30. Clean, but worn look to room, patched up cracks in ceiling, etc. No continental breakfast. Since this was booked through Orbitz the hotel could not issue a refund on my unused night. Would not recommend.

Pretty view of the lake from the balcony. Comfortable clean room and the restaurant downstairs has one of the best cheeseburger I've had. Highly recommend and look forward to going back.

This hotel is right on the lake and close to many restaurants and shopping! Very comfortable beds!

Man at desk upgraded our room at check in and put us on lake side. Nice place and no complaints. To

Housekeeping didn't come till late, after 4 every day and they didn't vacuum or clean the tub. Had to complain

Pretty location. Nice workout room. For the price I'd have thought you'd get either a continental breakfast or a discount to their restaurant. The room had microwave and fridge which was nice. Very clean except noticed that one if the hand towels had make up in it .

This was our 2nd stay at the Clarion - and we will be staying there again ...but this last time I guess the cleaning crew forgot to clean the microwave and to our yucky surprise when we opened it to rehaet our coffee -something truely old and disgusting was left inside. We told the front on our way out and they apoligized...with a smile ... So great hotel - but check the microwave BEFORE you settle in.

We had a lovely stay at the Clarion. The room was clean and comfortable, but did feel dated. The staff was supurb! The fridge was a nice surprise. Our one issue with the room was the paper products. They were cheap and acted like it...

We were very pleased with this hotel. We had a 6th floor room and the view of the lake was awesome from the balcony. We will definitely stay there again when we return to. Hot Springs.

Wasn't anything elaborate but the rooms where clean and the staff was nice and not far at all from bathhouse row will definitely stay again

Good location, easy access, pet friendly, swimming pool, boat ramp, clean rooms, access to good restaurants. Nice view over the Hamilton Lake. Front desk friendly personnel. Sorry but: Noisy A/C needs upgrade also new pillows. Suggestions: We would appreciate a safe shaded area to keep our pet during the time we were at the swimming pool instead of leaving them locked inside the room.

This hotel was close to Hot Springs and had a great view of the lake. Shopping and dining was close by. Highly recommend for a stay in Hot Springs. This stay was a stay over for a longer vacation, but would have liked to spend more days there. The only downside was that there was no security near the pool area, the towels provided were inadequate, and it appeared that others were going in that did not stay at the hotel.

No problems. Easy $10 taxi ride to Oaklawn or to down town. The Athens pizza from the Classics was a good room service choice.

Nice location, by the lake and for a few dollars you can reserve a room with lake view. The food at the restaurant was good. The waiting time was kind of long but the food seemed to be fresh cooked and tasty.

Worst hotel stay in years. When we arrived, I could not get on the internet, so I called the front desk. They were not able to tell me what the problem was, so they referred me to an 800 number. I called them and it took them almost 20 minutes to figure out how to get me on the internet. I have never had a problem like this anywhere. The room decor was very depressing -- the walls were three different colors, all a different shade of orange, and the furniture was orange wood. The microwave and fridge were in a cabinet where you had to stoop over to access them. There was a one-fourth inch opening where you could see daylight between the window air conditioning unit and the window. They must have forgotten to seal it when it was installed. The opening was big enough for spiders, bugs and even a small mouse to enter. There was a large cobweb dangling in the wind on the ceiling over the a/c unit and two more on the ceiling over one of the beds. The floors were filthy with ground in food and stains. There were two nasty stains on one of the chairs. There was no desk for my computer, so I had to use the small dining table to eat and compute. The towels were stored on a shelf inside the shower stall so that when you take a shower the towels get wet. What an idea!!! The sink in the bathroom was cracked in two places. The trash cans were so small (about two gallon size) that we had to leave some of our trash on the floor. The iron leaked water onto our clothes when we ironed. The refrigerator was not cold enough and there was no knob to adjust the temperature. Someone had removed it. The balcony was nice, but only had a partial view of the lake. To see the rest of the lake you had to go outside. The air conditioner was somewhat loud, which caused us to have to turn the TV volume up. There was no where to sit (couch or love seat) to watch TV except the two dining chairs. THE PRICE WAS ABSOLUTELY TOO HIGH FOR WHAT WE HAD TO PUT UP WITH. I would not recommend this place to anyone with a pulse!

I LOVE the hotels location. It's right on the lake and near some good restaurants. We stayed Memorial Weekend on the second floor and it was noisy nearly all night. People were playing basketball outside of our window late. Finally, I called the front desk around midnight and they had the group stop. The beds are super comfy. Some of the lights wouldn't work in the room and the shower pressure isn't the best.
