"Poor appearance, poor and unsafe."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
From the minute I got to hotel it was a terrible experience. They gave me a dirty room, had to leave my belongings and go back to get another room. No fridge, microwave, no ice except on first floor. Under construction mess everywhere. The 3rd day the maid walked in while I was showering saying that I had checked out? Called office got that cleared up so I thought, at 1 am a strange man walked into my room intoxicated saying it was his room! I was alone! Scared to death, call office again! Freaking out checked out the next morning three days early. I'm livid. Cannot believe this happened. I want to file a complaint!

"Manager was very nice and helpful. But found bugs!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Under construction. Found a bug as soon as we walked into the room. She cancelled our reservation with no hassles and helped us with directions to stay somewhere else.

"Stay Away!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We were excited about staying at a Clarion hotel based on previous experiences and the images portrayed on the web site. Unfortunately, the place has apparently been "under construction" for many years and is a poor excuse of a hotel. Upon arrival, we thought the place was closed. Temporary signs directed us to a side entrance that was dirty. A makeshift office in a hotel room served as the front desk. The hallways were dingy with ceiling tiles either missing, hanging down or badly stained. Using the only working elevator was a bit stressful. The tiny bathroom had no towel bars and the toilet paper dispenser was installed directly in front of the sink making it hard to brush our teeth. The dining room was a great distance from our room in another building that had no running water; no coffee, or working bathroom nearby. The pool was closed and the cover held stagnant water.

"The hotel is under construction for renewal and it was a shock to see."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When we drove up to the hotel we thought for sure we were at the wrong place. It looked like a condemned building. Our room was fine, but otherwise it was a disaster. There were no other hotels available because of the many programs going on in the city, otherwise we would have cancelled. We were disappointed.

"Good for a bachelor party, bad for a family experience or a nice stay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
There seemed to be a disconnect with the person we contacted to make reservations and the person that was there when we checked in. We had 10 rooms that we wanted to have early check in for and none of them were ready when I called. However, they did ensure that three rooms were readily available right away for us all next to one another as promised. The hotel was not nice and the check-in desk was located in a room right inside the side door. Renovations were going on so hopefully the property will be updated and improved as it is in desperate need for it. Nonetheless, for a bachelor party, this place was perfect. We didn't expect to spend that much time in the hotel to begin with and the rooms were good enough to stay in. By the time we got back (a little wild and crazy), any other hotel would have kicked us out. Thankfully we weren't called or kicked out and everything worked out great. I would not recommend this for anybody wanting a nice quite place to sleep, but for social gatherings, outings, etc. this place couldn't be any better. For the price, you really can't beat it.

"Below average hotel stay"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I traveled to Pittsburgh with 21 other people for a conference. We chose to stay at the Clarion based upon reviews I read and the reasonable cost of the hotel. Some of the amenities were good (breakfast) but the hotel was in need of repairs. We had 11 rooms reserved and none of them had Hot Water when we arrived. We called to discuss with the front desk who told me the maintainence staff was gone for the evening. We did have hot water the following day. Stains on carpets, elevator door that did not open easily.
