Verified Reviews of Clarion Hotel & Suites Riverfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Unbelievably Bad"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
1. Waited for the elevator for 15 minutes in the lobby when the staff knew one elevator was down and the workers knew the maintenance people were tying it up. The desk told us to walk up two flights instead of using the elevator. I don’t think so 2, room is okay. 3. Half of the items on the restaurant menu were discontinued. Really! 4. Get back to room to find out the drain in the sink doesn’t work. 5. Now we have to move to another room not as nice as the one we had Who is running this place, the three stooges. Very disappointed.

Stayed here for our Grandson's wedding next door. Room was very clean and smelled good. Front desk person was extremely helpful. Breakfast was good but a little early. All in all it was a wonderful experience and the hotel was beyond our expectations.

"An excellent stay!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had an excellent stay. The Staff are amazing and helped make our stay even more enjoyable, I cannot praise them enough!. The Hotel is central for everything only a few minutes walk to the main square. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean with nice sized bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable and the Hotel is very quiet at night. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Oswego. I would like to say thank you for an excellent stay.
