Clean and comfortable

The clarion is undergoing some transition from its last identity as a different hotel. As a result, there was some disorganization in the lobby. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Internet is free, but slow and breakfast was better than I expected. The parking is the best part- just outside the lobby door and free. No fees, no tips- a nice change from most city hotels. I would stay there again.

Clean and comfortable

Hotel was very close to Universal, right off the free way and very clean. Would have preferred to have a refrigerator but overall was a decent hotel and for the price it was worth it. Would stay there again if we go back to universal.

Ants, renovation, pool closed

When we checked in there were ants all over our room, due to food being missed on floor behind curtain when room was "cleaned". Hotel was unable to move our room , but sprayed for us which delayed checking in. Entire hotel was under renovation with no mention on line at time of booking. Pictures on site NOT representative of what hotel looks like! Pool was closed with no mention on site at time of booking. Location was great! Within minutes of hollywood, walked to Universal, great breakfast!

Good location Dark and Gloomy Hotel Lobby

The location was close but not close enough to walk to Universal Studios. You drive into a parking garage which was very small and parking was limited and you go into a lobby that looks like it was a dark lounge at one time.Fortunately the rooms were clean and newly decorated but for the price I wouldn't recommend this hotel.I won't stay there again!!!

Great location for Universal Studios

Walking distance to Universal Studios, however we were advised to drive if we planned on coming back late at night. And traveling with two small children we did just that. The included breakfast was good and there was something available for all to enjoy. Staff was very friendly and pleasant. No problem parking our car in the garage area and loved that parking was included. Hotel is being updated and is looking modern and nice. For the value it's definitely a place we'd crash again when visiting Universal Studios.
