Verified Reviews of Clarion Hotel & Suites Hamden New Haven

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Quality in Service Restored."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Very seldom will you find an element of sincerity and comfort that is not forced or obligated because of job mandates or status. The staff at the Clarion in Hamden provide a genuine approach to their guests and made every effort to accomodate our expectations. The character of the hotel is familiar and as it should be. For anyone who wishes to experience an "at home" environment, the only complaint to share is the unfortunate feeling of not being able to stay longer. To the members of the hotel, its management and to those who contributed to our now fondest memory thank you. Thank you, for accommodating us, your service and making people your top priority.

"No attention to detail."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
First it took 20 minutes to check in. Staff could not handle the amount of people checking. Second t requested a room with two beds, but got a room with one. Third, my toilet took 15 flushes to remove contents and makes a groaning noise. Since there is no complimentary water in the room, you are forced to use the vending machine. Of course the vending machine is out of water and any other alternative. Bathroom still has stains from where there was obviously mold at one time. The hotel is close to Quinnipiac University so I suspect it does a good business. I see no reason other then neglect as to why the quality of the hotel is so poor.
