clean lobby/dirty bathroom/noisy

Pros: the area and the lobby
Cons: cleanliness, working refridgerators(or just remove them), noise levels, blackout curtains that cover the whole window.
Location: This was in Bakersfield. I was visiting family at a hospital. Had not been here for over 30 years.
My husband made this reservation for me. I was out of town and wanted a hotel near a local hospital I was visiting. The area seemed fine at night. I walked in with my great-granddaughter and all seemed fine. Business people in suits. I check in and bring my luggage and the baby up the elevator. We return the luggage cart to the first floor. The room has an odd odor --maybe cleaning fluid? We eat our take out dinner. When I open the fridge to put the unused milk away I find that it is barely cold and the drip tray full of water. Next I go to the bathroom. The bottom third of the door is dirty and the wood door frame is either dirty or moldy. The tub and shower curtain were clean. I get my toddler to sleep by 9:30. Lights out--not really the black out shade does not close all the way and a light from the parking lot is shining over the end of the bed. I finally fall asleep. Noises in the hall and from the freeway wake me up frequently through the night. I spend 45-50 nights a year in hotels. Will definitely not be staying in a Clarion again.

Great Place to get together

Clarion was a great place for our family to get together.The Hotel is right off the freeway with ample restaurants and shopping close by. The rooms are not fancy but they were clean and comfortable. Breakfast saved us alot of money ( and time ) The staff was so nice, each one making us feel at home.I would stay there again!

Great Value

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, happy hour, very friendly
This Hotel was a great "Value" Free Breakfast ( More items needed) They had a Lounge with Happy Hour prices ( another value) Free Internet, Parking, Newspaper, Hot Beverage Station Very Friendly Staff I read the previous review and was weary of trying the Clarion but I am glad we did. From check in to check out we were greeted by each employee with a smile, appearing Happy all the time! This is an older hotel but is surprisingly modern in design and very clean. I would stay there again and recommend to others.

Never Again

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
We booked this hotel for a one night stay on a roadtrip to Southern California. Thank goodness we only had to stay for one night. The hotel is certainly convenient if you need a place to stay right off the freeway but that is about all it offers. There were feral cats in the parking lotand our room was definitely not what I would call clean. Our 11 month old baby's feet were filthy from crawling on the carpet in our room, there were dirty handprints on the bathroom door and the desk had not been wiped clean.

Restful Stay

Stayed at Clarion while visiting friend who lives in town. I am overworked and constantly stressed out and was looking forward to getting some R&R with my friend which is exactly what I got and more. The room was clean and comfortable. I am a very light/sensitive sleeper but the room was pretty quiet and the bed was very nice...so surprisingly nice that I even asked for the manufacturer name so I could get one at home. The staff was very nice as well. Although I didn't expect much when I first headed to Bakersfield, what I got was a pleasant, relaxing weekend.
