Though no one has ever asked me where I did my clinicals, I put it into my resume, and it did come up in interviews. I did clinicals at the hospital I work at now, and they say if you can work here (low pay, poor benefits, crappy funding, old EVERYTHING) you can work ANYWHERE. I looked at that as a good thing, and never hesitated to being it up. You will not only get your foot in the door, it may open up opportunities for you as a nurse tech later on, and at the very least, you'll be able to silently observe how it is run and how the staff interact, how the typical patient is, etc., which can help you decide where you possibly do and DEFINATELY don't want to work.
The hospital I'm at is a charity hospital that serves the underserved and destitute, and gets the 'cream of the crop' when it comes to drug users and homeless people. This includes moms, and I work NICU. Naturally, our NICU is busting at the seams with drug babies, those with physical malformations, and preemies who are vented before they have a chance to cough or cry. Though I could work at a private hospital with great insurance and better pay, why would I, as a new nurse, turn down an opportunity to learn in what is considered the hardest place to work in the state? It was a huge consideration for me when I was applying for both clinical rotations and jobs after graduation. If there is a hospital that is known for whatever your specialty will be later, I say go for it and learn as much as you can. It will only make you more knowledgeable, which in nursing, is priceless. Good luck!
