Pros: Location
Cons: Need to inspect the cleanliness.
Location: Downtown area was very quaint.
Hotel staff was pleasant. Hotel was not clean. There were spider webs behind the hotel lobby curtains. Restaurant bar tender was inexperienced. Our room bathtub was very dirty.

The bathroom has no fans and the carpet is old and dirty.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no fan in the bathroom.
I have never been to a hotel bathroom with no fan in it. The management has to see that this issue is resolved. As you can imagine after using the bathroom the smell and steam from the shower has to stay in for just too long for other users to start using it. We went there as a family of 3 and we needed to use the bathroom one after the other, it was awful. The room had one of the bulbs burnt out and I wonder how someone failed to check that before new guests came in. Lastly, the carpet is old and stained making it look dirty. The lady on the front desk was nice and replaced our light bulb which was not working. She wasn't aware of non-working/existing bathroom fans but she checked at least. I would give this hotel 3 stars had it not been for the non-existent bathroom fans. Lastly, the hotel is conveniently located to Shepherd University where we were going.

Worst experience ever in June 2010

We ended up here because reservation at another hotel got screwed up. The rooms were filthy, bathroom full of mold, furniture stained and broken, mattress was terrible. Room was musty, filthy, and there was an "excuse our bugs" card (yes, really!) on the coffee table. We got bumped here after midnight so had no choice ---- we left at sunrise and hope to never see the place again!)

Great Destination in a Historical Area

The Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Shepherdstown, WV offers premium hotel service. From the great hotel staff to the beautiful and comfortable accommodations to the great food, you will not be disappointed with your stay. You will not find better customer service anywhere. I highly recommend staying at this hotel. This hotel is located in an area rich in early settlement and civil war history.

Great stay

I was here for business and was very happy with my accomodations. The staff was attentive, friendly, and professional. I will return to this hotel when I am in this area again.

Stay some place else

I was very disappointed with this so called three star hotel (two/two and a half star at best). The rooms are in desperate need for remodeling (musty smell, box spring was stained). The bathroom was the worst (bathtub was missing molding and was riddled with mildew, sink was cracked and dirty, there was no ventilation and no trashcan). However the housekeeping staff did not forget to leave behind an envelope for tips! Definitely stay some place else (like the Bavarian Inn or the new Holiday Inn Express in Charles Town).

The room was horrible and dirty. I noticed a mouse near the garbage can in my room and I was disgusted! I left immediately!

Not impressed

Went there for anniversary getaway. No customer service. Restaurant closed first night due to private party yet banquet rooms were not in use. Jacuzzi not working Friday night or Saturday; several bugs in the buckets. Room had ants.This was an average hotel trying to charge a luxury rate. Overpriced by at least $30/night.

Don't Get There Late!

Arrived about 1am with reservation for a King room and rollaway. Was initially given 2 doubles and refused. Given the King Suite - dirty and dusty, A/C not working, and smelled like mold. Returned the key and found another hotel. Receptionist tried their best, but won't ever go back.
