Stayed here for 3 nights - perfect location relative to D.C., in my opinion. It's close enough to get anywhere in like 20 minutes (Ubers are everywhere), but far enough away that we avoided most of the craziness. There are plenty of cool things in this hotel to keep you entertained: an indoor pool and jacuzzi, foosball and billiards, shuffleboard,...

My room was pretty good but it was too close to a smoking room. Further the continental breakfast was the worst in the 10 hotels i stayed in in the last 3 years. The nearby Denny's took 30 minutes to make a simple club sandwich. On the plus side all the staff from the check in clerk to the security...

What a great place! Ample parking, friendly service, nice room! It was also nice it was around a ton to do and eat because of the University of Maryland in the neighborhood. Continental breakfast was good. And I stayed here because it is perfectly between Baltimore and DC. Easy 30min commute to each!

Recently stayed at this location over Halloween weekend, 2016 for three nights. The only good thing about this Clarion Inn is the staff. They are very personable and quite willing to help you out with any of your concerns or issues. Feel guilty giving this place a not-so-stellar review due to their efforts. The room was also generally clean. That...

Nothing gets me more excited when entering a hotel than something out of the ordinary. Something to set it apart from the shuffle and blur of unrecognizable rooms from hotel to hotel. The Clarion Inn in Collage Park MD did not disappoint. Making our entrance late at night, after check in, we were greeted to a wide open room that...

Booked hotel because it was close to the college football stadium (20 min walk) and was around $100 a night. It had 2/3 stars so we weren't concerned. Free parking and breakfast included a plus. Room definitely needs some tlc but roon was clean, bed comfy. The hotel setup is a little odd but I guess if you have kids...

First off, t he front desk person--April--was extremely polite and helpful. We enjoyed our first night, with a good rest. The second night was a nightmare. Our room faced the indoor courtyard--with the swimming pool, and lots of seating. There was a big football game the next day, so the hotel was full of families. We figured it would be...

As rated. The motel is terribly dated. The carpet from the common area is like a hundred years old full of stain and smell. It has a funny decoration that tries to give tropical impression on the inside. The pool and hot tub is at the center of the courtyard and with a "cover" that looked like an add-on from...

Let's just stick to the positives! Michelle upon check in became my best friend! She is amazing AND I watched her patiently deal with customers I wouldn't have been able to keep composure with, very courteous in her replies... The pool and hot tub area were amazing and clean without the very harsh chemical smell. Inshaun made sure the area...

Clean, comfortable no-frills rooms. Awesome pool and game room, breakfast and super-friendly staff! They were extremely helpful, and took care of our every need. Really not too far from DC, and the Metro was easy to tale in and out so we didn't worry about driving or parking inside the beltway.
