Verified Reviews of Clarion Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Beach front hotel on Mackinaw."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Loved having a beach front room on Mackinaw hearing the waves at night beds were very comfortable and clean. We had no maid service no clean towels etc would not eat breakfast there again did not like having to go outside to a separate bldg for swimming pool.

"Huge Disappointment. High Price Low Quality."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Beachfront sold me on staying, what a joke. Maybe if they bothered to clean up after the idiots on occasion, rake the sand and provide functional lounge seating then they could offer beachfront. I don't know where to begin on the room. You couldn't pay me to get in the room jacuzzi or to sit on the couch across from it but I seemed to have paid for them! Quality DOES NOT meet the price, so much so that we wasted our prepaid second night and went home early. Staff was friendly though, unfortunate.

"No Respect, Ruined Vacation"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I can't believe the treatment. When I told the manager that I paid $189.00 a night for an ocean view and was given a crappy room (with no ocean view), I was told that if I didn't like it I could leave. When I told him I was not leaving, that I wanted what I paid for, he said NO. If I caused any more problems he would call the cops. We drove three hours, with our grandson, our son and our 8 month pregnant daughter in law. We reserved two rooms, ocean view, for two nights and YES, it spoiled our vacation.
