"Unfortunate party people in the room next door"
Unfortunately we had a bad experience because of the party people in the room next door to us that woke us up at 2 a.m. and when you get woke up like that it is difficult to get back to sleep. I had to make 2 phone calls to the front desk and they promptly took care of the situation. If it wasn't for the middle of the night wake up, I would of given […] this hotel a 5 star rating.

"Very nice front desk gentleman"

"Decent for $100.00"
Stayed in November and it was great to have live entertainment and restaurant/bar on premises so we didn't have to leave the hotel. The hotel room was clean and a little updated. Would be nice to have a minifridge/bar with bottled water. The elevators take a really long time and seem a little off kilter. The restaurant and bar are extremely overpriced. […] Very outdated. The wait staff at the restaurant was lacking in many different aspects. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"review of Clarion"
The location was great as I was taking a class at the Ocean City Art league on 94th. The hotel was fine except for the very noisy air conditioner. I had trouble sleeping because of that but assumed all rooms were the same so did not mention it to staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau I'm sorry that the AC unit caused you unrest. We are in the process of upgrading our AC units, and I hope you visit with us again to see the progress we've made.
"Beautiful location but horrible hotel"
The hotel is in desperate need for updates and for proper cleaning. The ceiling in the room had mold; dirty towels were provided as clean, the bathroom was from a different era; the hotel is smelly and full of dogs. The pool is horrible. The price is not correlated with the quality by any means.Genuine Expedia guest review
"better than i thought"
We booked this mini vacation last minute and had never been to OC. The hotel was a pleasant surprise in terms of having decent amenities and nicer than your typical Clarion type hotel. The food was very good and the outdoor bar area was great. There were palm trees and a great view of the ocean. It felt very tropical.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for a ridiculous price."
Paid an outrageous price for a sub-par room and experience. Would have been happier staying at a Motel 6. The AC rattled loudly all night, king sized bed felt like an air mattress, the 'balcony' is big enough for one person at a time to stand, constantly waiting with a growing crowd for an elevator to finally show up. Location and beach access are the […] only good things I have to say about this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean, family and pet friendly place"
Stay was great. Pleasantly surprised with the quality and cleanliness of the hotel. It felt much better than a 3 star. Parking was a bit tight but it was Labor day weekend and the hotel was packed to the brim. Staff was friendly and courteous. I saw several guests with pets; the hotel has a fenced-in dog park in the back of the hotel. Only hotel with […] a big restaurant on the property in about a half-mile both ways on the beach strip.

"Close to the beach but far from night life !!"
The hotel was great overall. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. They would greet you good morning and good night every time someone walks in and out of the hotel front doors. the amenities overall was just OK. I wasn't pleased with the employees that worked at the outside bar by the pool during the […] day. They weren't friendly at all. The prices of the drinks were reasonable but again the servers and the bartender was not friendly both days I stayed at the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hoten must do something on elevators. Upon check out, I literally waited 45 minutes at 16th floor to get down. Horrible service. They need more elevators. Best part of staying there is water in pool. Heated pool with nice warm water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was terrible, hallways were dirty, rooms smelled of dogs and elevators barely worked. this hotel charges way too much money for their services, not worth the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"worst hotel in gods creation"
dirty bad service rude would highly recommend to stay far away GROSSGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice family friendly resort."
Overall very nice. Rooms clean, staff helpful, adequate parking. The only thing that could be better is that the elevators are slow and there are not enough for the size of the place. Also the Queen beds are really Standard.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Clarion Resort Fontainebleau is a very nice hotel. We enjoyed our stay there, however the hotel can reach an outstanding rating with attention to a few details. I would recommend adding additional staff to the hotel restaurant. The current staff was very nice, but they need help serving the amount of people they have to service. The restaurant is […] very busy, its in their best interest to add staff. In addition, if an additional elevator can be added, that would cut down on the long elevator wait. I must add, the Front desk staff was very helpful and very nice. The cleaning staff was also very good and nice. All in all, he entertainment and amenities were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and I would recommend the hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I didn't like my room view, I have a roof with loud A/C units running. I believe I paid to much for that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really enjoyed the hospitality, and prompt service. What a friendly family environment. The entertainment was excellent and there was always something to do. Wife, kids and my Inlaws all enjoyed themselves. What more can I ask for? We will be back Thanks ClarionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A decent hotel with a great restaurant"
This hotel is a bit pricy for its 3 stars but its intangibles include an exit to the beach straight from the elevator (you still have to go through a bar), a bar facing the beach, and an all-you-can-eat buffet that offers everything from shrimp and crab legs to spare ribs to several kinds of ice-cream. Leaving this restaurant at night you just don't […] want to go or drive anywhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good. I have stayed here many times. No other hotel has the resort amenities and is on the beach (a park your car and leave it hotel) The quality and service is consistently good, and at a very reasonable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel great view and access to the beach."
Great staff, the group "On The Edge" that played at the outdoor bar were Great. Don't miss the show.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a very good stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time at the Clarion. The front desk staff (Chad) was so wonderful and he is first rate with customer service. We will go again and stay longer!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked very last minute. We were very happy and are normally hard to please. Great amenties. Plenty of staff. They own their portion of the beach. The room was advertised with no view but in fact had one of the ocean and bay. Elevators issues was the only problem we had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great stay at a great price"
We were initially disappointed. The Clarion appears older and is easy to miss from the road. However, the hotel pleasantly surprised us with a great view, a spacious room with sofa bed, prompt staff, and a decent restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very friendly and accommodating staff! Great food at the snack bar. The room was clean, neat and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice stay. Lots of amenities. Close to everything. Local restaurants are wonderful with many choices. The hotel charges for beach chairs. I thought that was unnecessary considering the daily rate paid for the room. The view from the balcony was very nice, but its a shame they aren't full balconies. The hotel staff were very nice and always cordial. […] Housekeeping was great and our rooms were serviced timely each day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach."
What I like best about the hotel was the beach. However I do believe the hotel room needs to be restored. The ceiling had water stains. I didn't like the mini pillows on the bed. I would prefer two queen size pillows instead. The bed was comfortable but the rooms should reflect more of a pleasing "beach atmosphere" since the hotel is located on the […] beach. I enjoyed eating at the restaurant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Mold on walls and roach in bathroom"
They have nerve charging so much for this place. The rooms need renovating. There was mold on the walls/ceiling and the walls, bathroom door and front door were dirty. The fan in the bathroom was full of dust/dirt and there was a cockroach in the bathroom our last night (I would have checked out right away if I could). It's a shame since the staff seemed […] nice enough but I would not recommend this hotel to anyone! Gross, gross, gross! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau I'm very sorry that you experienced these issues. The situation you describe is not up to our standard, and I'm very disappointed that the room was in that condition. I have forwarded your comments to the Director of Housekeeping, who will work to ensure these issues do not get repeated. Sincerely, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
a very wonderful time at this hotel...good band, friendly and accomodating staff...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel for a family with small children."
Staff was courteous, clean rooms and attentive pool staff. It was a nice distance from the boardwalk - not too close & not too far.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach but terrible ocean views."
Our room was on the pet floor so our view was the roof of the convention center and all we could hear were the air conditioning units running day and night. Check in at 4:00, don't arrive early our room wasn't available until 4:30. Electrical outlets were not all working. The coffee maker and microwave were on a extension cord and you need to unplug […] one to plug in the other. Parking is a nightmare if you can find parking at the hotel spaces are tight, if you can't find parking you will have to park across the street and run across a 6 lane highway. Our last night we had a water leak into our room, only to find out the next morning it was a toilet from the room above. Our only compensation was a guaranteed parking space 2 nights and out pet fee was removed from our bill. The new front desk manager is very rude. I will say that the cleaning staff was very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I had never been to O.C. so I just took a shot with the Clarion. Overall it's a great hotel. Not very close to the boardwalk however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great. We did not have a problem when we were there and the most important thing was that it was comfortable and cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"A one night stay"
Two things stuck out about our stay. The counter staff at check in was devoid of emotion - I expect a hello and a bit of a smile. I did not get it. The other thing was we arrived at 3 and the official check in was at 4. They could have found something before 4 but made no effort to do so. The room was ready at 4, when I went back to the counter. A […] bad start. The staff at the bar and at breakfast the next morning were exceptional. First impressions count for me and I will not be back. Too many options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau I'm sorry that you feel our front desk personnel was devoid of emotion. You certainly should have received a smile and a hello, and I apologize sincerely that you didn't get that. Unfortunately, we probably didn't have rooms ready when you got there. Our policy is a 4pm check-in, but we always try to get everyone checked in as soon as rooms are available. It makes it much easier for the staff to check guests in if they are staggered than if they all come in at the same time. We do hope you'll change your mind and come back to visit with us in the near future. Kind regards, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager

"Room not completely clean when we arrived."
Very nice hotel. The room needed cleaning when we checked in. It was obvious that the cleaning crew does not vacuum around beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Dear Bruce, I wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, and let you know that we really appreciate your patronage. There are so many hotels to choose from while vacationing in Ocean City, and we’re very fortunate that you chose to spend your time with us.

Looking forward to welcoming you back again, with warm regards, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
"First time and last time"
I would not recommend the Breakfast and dinner buffet. The food choices were very minimal and poorly cooked. The outside pool spa was closed by the Department of Health. Overall it was an experience I would not duplicate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Dear Bob, I'm very sorry you weren't pleased with our buffets, as they are "Best of" award-winners in the town. It's true that recently our outside hot tub was closed for one hour due to a chemical imbalance. That's a rarity, and it was immediately resolved. Please come back and give us another chance to offer you superior service. We'd love to welcome you back again! Kind regards, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
"Great views, clean rooms great service!!"
I enjoyed my stay there with my husband. We requested top floor and they were able to accommodate us. The view was spectacular, although I do wish the balcony was larger with seating. There was live entertainment which we enjoyed along with the view as we sat on the balcony. The staff was very friendly, fast and helpful. I would also suggest calling […] to see what events are taking place at the Hotel Conference Center. Unfortunately when we were at hotel there was a Dance competition being held there for young girls. These girls were I and out the few elevators that they have constantly. The parking was also jammed up due to this event too. It was a little frustrating coming back to hotel and not finding parking or having to park all the way across the street. But, all in all I enjoyed myself thoroughly!! I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome hotel with a live band. Great good"
I loved this hotel I have already told my friends they must stay there. Friendly staff great food. Live band that had everyone on their feet. Oh and right at the beach. The beach was not crowded like down towards the boardwalk. Can't wait to visit againGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Access to the Beach"
We felt that the "balcony" was too small - couldn't even fit a chair on it. Outside of that, the room was comfortable, clean, and perfect for our stay at the beach. The location was far away from the boardwalk, which is a disadvantage regarding boardwalk activities, if that is what you are looking for. There are plenty of restaurants and a grocery store […] nearby, which was convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is overpriced for what they offer. The only good think was the indoor and outdoor pools, other than that, less than average. Bathroom upstairs was leaking and they had to move us to the room next door. The ocean view isn't an advantage given the fact the balcony is extremely small and can't fit two people, save your money and take city vi […] ew. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Dear Jamal, I'm very sorry that you had an unpleasant experience at our front desk. Without details I really can't address the issues you had, but I do apologize if you felt the front desk staff was impolite. They are all very good people, but rudeness is inexcusable, and I will pass along your concerns to the Front Desk Manager so that appropriate refresher training may be offered. I do hope you will return so that we can have another chance to offer you the superior service you deserve. Thank you, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
"Nice hotel - All needs available"
Stayed for 3 nites. Check in/out was painless and quick. Room was large enough and quiet. Overall didn't have any complaints. Ended up eating at the hotel once we realized that was the best bang for the buck in the area. Although I was with a little child and couldn't take advantage of all the amenities, there is plenty to do at this hotel with the […] outdoor bar/grill, live music, fitness area.....etc. I would/will definitely go back to Ocean City and stay at this hotel.

"Didn't have to leave the resort"
We had a very relaxing three day stay. The hotel was right on the beach, had two pools, an ok gym, several bars, live music, great three-hour-long happy hour and an "excellent seafood buffet." The few things I disliked was the lack of a coffee shop for quick coffee and light breakfast. (Breakfast buffet was not same quality as dinner.) Didn't like staff […] riding elevators with guests and they need to better stay on top of cleaning glass doors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Over the 4th"
Stayed over the 4th of July. It was nice. Rooms were clean and smelled clean. Everyone that worked there that we encountered were pleasant. The pool is a little small for the amount of people at the hotel on a crowded weekend. Even smaller is the walk-way around it. With the lounge chairs in some places it does not give the walker much room at all to […] get by. Life guards seemed attentive. People seemed to be saving chairs, although there is a sign warning against it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I've passed along your comments regarding the pool walkway to our General Manager for his review. We definitely appreciate you bringing that to our attention.

"Nice high-end and expensive motel on the beach."
I liked the location of this motel. It is way up north and away from the boardwalk traffic. I did not realize they allow dogs. I HATE dogs. There were a lot if dogs there. Apparently this is one of very few that do allow dogs. Do not stay here if you don't like dogs. The pool was nice. The staff was very good. The beach is right there, and it is very […] nice. I thought is was overpriced, but we were there July 4th week-end. We were on the top (16th) floor, and as busy as it was, it was a major process getting up and down to our room.

Warm regards, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights. Appearance and first impression was bad. Pictures on website are deceiving. Pools were not clean. Half the time Air condition did not work . You cannot walk to board walk. Not worth the valuesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Clarion Resort Fontainebleau I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your accommodations. We do clean our pools several times a day, and chemical checks are run by our own pool staff and spot checked by the town. It's true that we aren't within walking distance to the boardwalk, but we don't claim to be. The town bus runs between the inlet and the state line, and you can ride for $3 all day. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel and directly across the street. I hope you reported the AC as not working while on property, as we try to resolve issues for guests immediately. We hope to see you again at the Clarion Resort so we have another chance to give you superior service. Warm regards, Stephanie Reed Social Media Manager
