Clinton Park Inn Reviews (818)
Clinton Park Inn was my family's first choice of stay in Velankanni since last 3 years because of the location and good food even though it is one of the expensive ones near the Shrine, But this visit in March 2017 was an unpleasant one and probably the last one to this Hotel. I had to think for a moment if this is the same Hotel which I used to frequent in the previous years 1) Unclean Room with dirty towels. 2) Bulbs not working in the bathroom, with a broken door knob. There was no fix for this even after repetitive requests 3) A word of caution about items stored in the refrigerator, good to check before you sign in, else they might take you for a ride while you check out. Only exception this time was good breakfast. 1)Word of advice for the travellers, check the room before you agree to check in and get the rooms changed if with defects 2)Don't sign in blindly for the items in the refrigerator, have a quick check before you leave the room.
On reaching Velankanni, we were refused rooms by Seagate Resort despite holding a mail confirmation of reservation of 2 AC deluxe Rooms 0n 12th November 2016, and at this juncture, we tried the Hotel Clinton Inn at Velankanni and the Hotel has clean and spacious rooms. The staff is helpful and cooperative. There is sufficient parking place behind the hotel premises. The hotel is at a walking distance of about 500 meters from the Church. There is a gate opposite to the Hotel premises from which the new church Morning Star can be easily accessed avoiding the traffic on the main road. The complimentary breakfast provided by the hotel is good. For meals, options for vegetarian items are limited. Our stay here was comfortable.

Top Reviews of Clinton Park Inn
I visited this hotel with my family. The overall experience in this hotel was good and I felt it was very new for me as I have not been to such kind of hotel before. The hotel surrounding or environment was too good. The staffs are really great and they fulfilled our request without fail. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The room allotted to me was spacious, neat with all required amenities in working condition. There was no view from the room and I did not notice on that. The first day food was good and quality was perfect. The food price was reasonable. I did not participate in any activities conducted by the management. There was no sightseeing organised by the management. As per my stay, the hotel is costly for middle class people. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
The purpose a pilgrim visit to Valankini Church and a beautiful stay, which was fullfilled by Hotel Clinton Park. helpful, warmth and soft spoken staff. Stayed for 4 night / 5 days from 04 - 08 June. The hotel was the best and closest to the church only 7-10 mints walk, with facilities of a 4 Star. Had taken A/C room with Church view.. and it was worth the extra paid per night Rs 250/- for the church view since the church glows during the night and looks splendid while you lazily sleep on the bed. The room had a flat screen 32 Inch TV, Hot / Cold shower Glass wall in the bathroom and very clean, Very comfortable double bed for a family of 3 as all can sleep comfortably. A/C was not centralized and had a split A/C in the room so to switch it off / on as an when. A/C room is a must take since the weather is hot and you will feel the difference. A spacious sitting area for 2 with a table beside the bed. Complimentary b\'fast is a full American B\'Fast although they say its continental at weekends. But week days depending on hotel occupancy. Good B\'Fast more of south Indian variety. Meals are tasty but lack quantity.. Room service takes a long time and could add to your hunger. So make sure to order 2 portions if your single and 4 portion if your double. Quantity is just about 3 spoon of any dish. Price per dish is reasonable in comparison with the quality. I missed the pool since that was the only thing missing in the hotel or else it would be of 5 Star rating. I was happy to have a room facing the church so that could remind me the soul purpose of me being in Valinkani to pray and have an inner peace every time I looked outside the window. Overall a very good clean Hotel and the best of best in Valankini.. Most important close to the church
I stayed at clinton park when I visited Velankani along with my family. It was a religious trip and so only a one day stay. Personally I liked the hotel a lot cause I was able to totally concentrate on my trip without bothering about the stay. The Pros: 1. very close to the velankanni church 2. rooms very neat and clean 3. 20-25 mins from the railway station 4. staff courteous and they handled everything from the check in to check out very professionally. I booked the room in advance over phone and there was no confusion or delay in check in. 5. The bathrooms very well maintained. The Cons: Well, pretty much nothing. Its worth the money that I paid. I would suggest all to prebook the hotel and go. They handle the bookings very professionally. I liked the fact that they send reminders of the stay cause somehow I felt assured that the room is surely reserved for me and there wont be any confusion when I reach there. This I say particularly cause I had a bad experience with one hotel in Munnar where they were surprised when I said I had a booking with my family there after reaching there and I didnt exactly get the type of room that I booked.
This is the best hotel in velankanni as far cleanliness, rooms and standards go. U also have a clear view of the main church. Its at a walkable distance from the church and rickshaws are easily available outside the hotelif u need to go anywhere. Also the hotel staff is very professional and friendly at the same time. They also organise other jungle n nature tours if u ask, only there are no activities available during the rains, and it usually rains in the month of november for 20-25 days.. sadly for us we did not know and ended up getting bored.
We stayed with our families on the top most floors with church view rooms (costs more) and the view of the church from the room was great and serves the purpose of the visit. The kids also liked their stay, though it was quite warm outside. The air condition does not go off when you leave the room, unlike other hotels, so when you get back; the room was just perfect to relax. Bathroom and amenities were just standard and so was the breakfast buffet which could improve with more supervision. We also had our lunch and dinner at the hotel’s restaurant which was fairly good but service needs supervision and improvement. Free Wi Fi was available only in the lobby. Check in and checkout was 24 hours and we got extended check out of 6 hours for 50% of tariff. We booked directly with the hotel, and got 15% discount. Over all a pleasant stay
