We love staying here the downtown small town atmosphere is addictive. The hotel is older and still has a lot of the old school flavor. The bar and restaurant service is excellent and they have KENO. The prices are good too.

I was simply driving a bit late and pulled off in Claire Mi, noticed this hotel on main st and decided to give it a try. Very upscale but at reasonable prices. I think I paid about $110 and that included breakfast, and a good one at that. Rooms clean and well appointed.

We arrived at what looked like the entrance to the hotel only to find a large room with no reception desk or signage pointing to the Lobby or check in area. After quite a walk did find the lobby to check in, it's situated at what looks like the check in for the dining area right off the street with...

Walking into this hotel, I wasn't sure what we find...but it was a very nice stay! The rooms might be a little out dated but, our room was spacious, the pool area was nice and they bar had delicious food and the staff was extremely friendly!

Its a mish mash of several buildings of various vintages. Pool area is odd, lots of local parties going on there. Room was big and odd, bed was adequate. Easy walk to downtown restaurants. Easy access to highway.

Stayed here for 2 nights (Fri/Sat) on a golf outing with another couple. This was my first time in Clare. Cool things about the hotel - it is old, has a lot of history and the staff are very attentive. Service is great and the staff love to answer your questions about ghosts and hauntings. Had some great conversations. Food...

In town again to ride the Pere-Marquette bike trail. Check in is at 3 but when I made reservations they said to check and see if a room was ready early so we could check in before the ride. It wasn't but they are always kind enough to let us park in the lot and we changed in the hotel...

I'm not sure what it is about the Doherty - maybe it reminds me of hotels from when I was younger. Maybe it's always seeing the same faces (including the owner) when we check in and out. Or possibly it's that everything always goes 'right' when we're there (nice room, great service, nice value, good food.....). Either way, it's a...
