3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Housekeeping woke me up at 7 am, total BS. Wort experience ever.

my rooms carpet was dirty and outdated. room smelled stale.

The property and rooms are clean and maintained great. The breakfast was spot on, exactly what was need before a day at the parks.

The room was clean and nicely decorated. Need were comfortable. Easy parking and elevator access. There was shuttle service to Disney World but it was limited. We ended up driving and paying for parking so we could get there early and leave when we wanted to. The buffet had lots of options but the food was so so.

this is my second time at this hotel and i cant wait until i can go back leela at the front desk was so sweet she made me a yummy basket for my birthday great hotel price staff and clean rooms just awesome

Fabulous hotel operated at a 5-star level! Well-maintained room; clean and recent renovations.Superior service all-around: Courteous and helpful front-desk staff, housekeeping and maintenance staffs also. One of the few hotels that have a parking gate/parking pass, and the only one on Palm Pkway that had Xmas lights (2018) on tree trunks along their entrance into the lobby; very nice touch! Crowning touch was their overlooked DINNER buffet: AYCE buffet run by a 5-star chef. Very small but of very high/5-star (really!) quality with 4 entrees every night of beef, chicken, pork and tilapia---mouth-watering preparations! Well-priced, and you don't have to leave the hotel to hunt for a decent dinner! Kindly tip Melvin and his associate for excellent service. If we return to Orlando, we hope to re-stay here!

Nice hotel and close to everything. Would rent again.

Close to Disney World, nearby hotels, and restaurants. The front gate / gate guard made me feel a little more safe at the Clarion. Parking is free with the hotel stay (unlike nearby hotels such as the Holiday Inn and Hilton).

The location is close and accessible to food and shopping. The room served it’s purpose.

For me, the room was great and had everything I needed. If I had been traveling with family or a group would have considered it a bit cramped. A bit noisey outside (freeway in back of property, major roadway in front) but rooms were quiet. Beautiful grounds. 2 swimming pools and a splash pad (had as much fun at the splash pad as I did at the pools). Wasn't too impressed with the bar; had the very basics and no specialty drinks. Hot Wings were good!!! The convenience store/gift shop was a plus altho a bit pricey; had different sodas, sandwiches, and microwave food, and of course gifts to take home. Seen but didn't visit the Starbucks kiosk or the newsstand. .Went into the arcade for a few; wish they had had a few old school video games/pinball machines but still wasn't bad. The restaurant was great! If I lived there, would consider going to eat at the restaurant just because the food was good and price was decent. A couple of computers in the main lobby area connected to internet for people to use. A stand with brochures for all the area attractions and an information desk to answer your questions and call taxi (never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a taxi, even at 5am! If you stay here and need transportation, might I suggest PLATINUM TRANSPORTATION. I tried a few, and this was the best, in my opinion. I specially enjoyed my driver, Lily. Really enjoyed sitting under the pavilion in the evening (after dinner) with a drink. Peaceful and relaxing!

Housekeeping was at my door two hours before checkout, my family and I felt rushed. Our room was swarming in ants. In general the staff was not accommodating. The only pro’s were 24 hour security at gate and well kept grounds. Don’t think I’d stay again or recommend to friends and family.

The location was great.I took my grandchildren 10,3& 1 the little splash zone water was really cold.Pool was a little warmer.Overall I would stay there again.

To whom it may concern, I just wanted to reach out and express my disappointment with my recent stay at the Clarion Inn location on Palm Parkway. Unfortunately we were unimpressed with the condition of our room. Here is a summary: 1) Bath Tub made a loud creaking noise with every step. It made the shower process extremely annoying. 2) Soap dish was barely hanging onto the tiled tub wall. The grout was missing and it was just dangling in the corner. 3) Water pressure was absolutely awful. It was so low it was almost impossible to wash your hair. It was barely more than a slight trickle. 4) Cable TV didn't work for the first 1.5 days. It kept flashing loose connection but I when I checked the connections they were tight. It finally came on the next to last day but there was a terrible hum that made it unwatchable. 5) My room overlooked the Outlet Mall across the street. The traffic noise was extremely loud. 6) The A/C unit wouldn't come on unless you set it below 68 and then it was cold. The constant fan button didn't work. 7) The outside door was very faded and hard to pull closed to lock. The pictures were very misleading. This location definitely needs some TLC on the inside.

Saw a tiny ant on nightstand when I first checked in, that should have been my first clue. Dumped a soda in the sink and the next morning there were hundreds of tiny ants in the sink and around the vanity. Tub drained very slowly. Mold on bathroom ceiling. It was close to Disney. That is the only plus.

it was a nice room close to universal and disney world. lots of food around too
