        Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Modesto

        Reviews were right


        The reviews were right. This is not a 3-star hotel. Had to move to a new room after it looked like the sheets had not been changed.

        Very disappointed


        This is most definitely not a 3 star lodging. I have stayed at two other Red Lions which were very nice. This place wasn't.

        It is old and needs a complete renovation. Mismatched wallpaper, peeling tub that apparently had been painted, wallpaper coming away from the walls and threadbare furnishings. There have been some attempts at updating, but the work was very poorly done. I own rentals and would not tolerate such slipshod renovation work.

        We checked in at 1PM and noticed a room service tray in the hall directly opposite our interior door. Still there when we left for our 4 PM engagement and it was still there when we left at 9 AM the next day. I did see rodent traps, so maybe that is no big deal to management. It is to me.

        We were there on a weekend for a family event. The place was practically empty. Maybe 15 cars in the front lot, maybe 20- 30 in the back one. The majority of reviewers on this site have it right - avoid this place.

        FECES in the toilet - dont trust advertisement


        This is a truly falsely advertised hotel. The lobby looks good the but the rooms are crappy motel six 39.99 grade!

        We booked through hotels and were having trouble finding even a 3 star room in modesto. After thanksgiving, tired, we arrived and checked in. Instantly, I called to ask to be moved to the newly remodeled section as promised. They said that section was full.

        I then went to the bathroom and someone had left feces in the toilet!

        We then tried to just leave. They convinced us to look at two other rooms. Another in a quiet section and one in the newly remodeled section.

        The newly remodeled was NOT newly remodeled. It was the same. Plus it was near a bunch of partying kids who were drinking and hanging out open hotel room doors.

        The next room was locked. That was the last straw. We left and booked at the courtyard marriott which was stellar.


        What a dump!


        Everything about this place was wrong! From rude service at the front desk, to the dirty rooms, and the sky high price for a pizza. I would never stay there again, not even for free! I felt like I was sleeping on rocks instead of a mattress. A place can be old, but there is no excuse for dirtyness!

        Horrible dont waste your money here


        The lobby was beautiful and very inviting, the hotel help were very unfriendly and not helpful, the pictures on the internet were misleading, they looked nothing like what you get. our stay was one mishap after another we were given the key to our room which never worked we had to have maintenance use the emergency key to get us in more than once and waiting for more than 30 min for them to do it. the courtyard was infested with mosquitoes as was our room, we got bitten many times and with west nile virus makes me very unhappy, the beds were old and uncomfortable we paid for a king bed and got a double it was a horrible experience dont waste your money here....



        To say this hotel is disgusting is putting it mildly. The carpet was filthy and loose, the beds were hard as rocks, and I found hair on one of the pillows. The bedspreads needed to be washed, the furniture was dusty, the headboards were damaged, the air conditioner was broken, the toilet seat was pitted, the bathroom floor was filthy and there was something that had dripped behind the tp dispenser. If I hadn't already prepaid 2 rooms thru Priceline, I would have been out of there. Fortunately I was only there for 9 hours. Yuck.



        This hotel is severly overpriced. The continental breakfast is $10.00. The room we were placed in had cockroaches. Commplaints fall on deaf ears.

        Don't waste your money


        Not only was the front desk clerk when we arrived unaccommodating, but the on-line pictures of the hotel rooms were very misleading. The rooms look absolutely nothing like the ones shown. Rooms are dreary and old and the mattresses are even older. Out of three rooms, six adults, two children, and well over $500 in room charges alone, none of us slept comfortably. The air conditioners/heaters did not work properly and were extremely noisy. At least one of the bathrooms had chipping enamel and the children had to be given sponge-baths because we were afraid the tub would not be safe for them to sit in. There were unkempt adults loitering in the children's park and trash all around outside. I'm almost certain the No-Tell Motel would have been a better choice and at half the price.

        Expected more from this hotel


        The beautiful front lobby to this hotel is very inviting, but I would recommend staying elsewhere. The king-sized bed was very uncomfortable, tv channels were limited and the bathroom lacked ample space for toiletries. The next-door neighbors were a bit noisy until 1am, but the uncomfortable mattress was keeping us awake, in spite of the noise. I was glad it was only for one evening. Next time we pass through town, we will stay at the Double Tree, even though it's Double the price.

        It's worth a good nights sleep.

        Red Lion Inn repuration hurts


        I was traveling alone and placed in a room in the back with male workers who were partying both in the parking lot and in surrounding rooms. I asked for my room to be changed. The hotel reservations clerk complied. The experience only continued to be unpleasant. On the way to the room, the hallway was littered and unvacumed. Upon turning back the bedspread, it was event from the soiled backing that it had not been washed in a long time! However, it got worse, in putting down the sheets, I discovered a hair on the sheet. Thinking perhaps it was my own that had fallen, I went to the other side of the bed to look there. A hair was on the pillow also. This bed had not been changed from the previous traveler. A heater that blew air - but not warm air - and a radio alarm clock that was broken topped off the miserable accomodations at the Modesto Red Lion Inn.

        Santa Barbara is freakishly, almost perfect. It basks in pleasant, warm weather (84 degrees at 4pm as we arrived), nestles beneath a backdrop of mountains and sits on the Pacific. It was uniformly rebuilt, after yet another, devastating earthquake, in Mediterranean style with red roofed, white painted buildings and millions of palm trees. The downtown is on a typical American grid pattern and is crammed with cafes and restaurants and the feel of contentment. It must be very easy to ...

The Whittemore's house is decorated in this great, seaside feel. Boats,lighthouses, shells, etc everywhere and it is really fun. I kept seeing new things, so that was cool. They also have this gorgeous painting of a lighthouse hanging on one of the high walls. I loved ...
