This was an OK room near the center of town. The staff is nice. It is in walking distance to local restaurants. The room was clean and adequate. They give you earplugs as the freeway is a stones throw away and since the we stayed on the 8th floor, the sound travels. There is no complementary breakfast.

Thank you so much for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the stay. We do provide the earplugs given the freeway noise, and the general sounds of a city (sirens, traffic, etc). I hope this helped. We are in the process of renovating the property, and will convert to a Ramada by Wyndham at the end of this month. We...

We arrived at the hotel famished and we were greeted with a warm smile and an energetic, "Welcome to the Clarion" from your amazing staff Jojo. We were hungry and JoJo recommended a authentic pizza restaurant called Napoleons, which within walking distance. Our room was clean and our stay was pleasant. Being from out of town, we really appreciated the...

Hotel was hosting a loud event for an outlaw motorcycle gang. This gang took over the lounge, pool, bar and parking lot, physically keeping us from parking our car in the already crowded lot. Their loud music, shouting and constant engine serving and burnouts, kept us awake the whole night (even on the eighth floor of the hotel). To top...

Rooms were clean and nice, ac was noisy but who cares not a big deal. But the view from the top floor was absolutely amazing you could see everything the location wasn't very bad there is a short walk to the gas station that's right there and it wasn't very scary or anything definitely work recommend this to anyone.

I am currently in my second night staying at this Clarion property while attending the fantastic World Baseball Classic at Petco Park. I got this hotel via Hotwire, so I got a good rate, but even so this hotel isn't worth the price I paid. Hotwire rated this hotel as a 2 1/2 star property. To me, it's closer to...
