Recent guest reviews

Lengthy check in experience. One maintenance guy and one check in person on a holiday Easter spring break weekend. I reserved two rooms. the first room-for half of the floor was sopping wet and it took quite some time for them to address it and then decide what to do and luckily a maintenance man took pity on us having so many small children between the two of us and our rooms to move us but that didn’t happen Til 11 PM at night with four small children. Breakfast was dry hard and way too crowded. I wish I had just gone out to breakfast. Yuck. Beds aren’t comfortable. Air conditioners smell moldy. Not worth this $$$

good: 1. Provide breakfast. 2. stuff is helpful. 3. close to 2 disney parks 4. close to 2 restaurant and one supermarket bad 1. Run out hot water if back to hotel late , let's say around 11:00pm. 2. carpet is smelly. 3. shuttle bus schedule is not helpful to access the park.

First the room key didn't work twice, then room smelled musty, the tub had a hair in it, Shower only had luke warm water.

Great staff, some water damage to the room but bed are comfortable and again the staff is great

The room was smelly but roomy. The staff was quite friendly

We would of rated this room higher if it wasn't for the horribly stained couch. The arm of the couch had a big huge red stain on it that look like blood and the cushions on both sides had huge dark Water mark looking stains. I had to make sure my two-year-old daughter didn't get on the couch or touch it. Also the beds were very hard and springy. The pillows were half the size of a standard pillow. I've stayed at clarion's and this was a huge disappointment.

The rooms are sizable and clean. Easy parking. Nice pool. The only issue is the breakfast which is pretty bad. The breakfast area is cramped and dirty and staff prevents you from getting your food to eat in your room or elsewhere. It means there is no place to sit and the lines are long. And the food is gross.

Nice hotel, great staff, good location. Staying several days, it was very nice to have a laundry area!!! Nice pool, but the pool bar could be open more often!!!!

Great location, near a lot of stores. Room was very clean. Friendly staff!

Staff was freindly. The concierge ask the desk was very helpful and helped me and my children pick a theme park that was just right for them and they had a blast.

Minimal hot water. Excessivley noise A/C unit. Someone's leftover Tylenol in the bathroom! On par with outhouse (motel) 6! Not worth the money

I stayed for 1 night b/c I came into Florida earlier than I booked another hotel. I looked at all the hotels in the area and most of them had terrible reviews. So, getting to here was like heaven after seeing the conditions of a lot of hotels. Even at the hotel I stayed in afterwards, I heard stories of roaches and unclean conditions. I must've been lucky to have stayed at Clarion!

If you do not want to spend much but stay in a fairly clean and comfortable place, this is the one. The bed was very comfortable, A/C worked fine (a little bit on the noisy side), plenty of parking, front desk staff was very amicable, but the housekeeping staff looked upset and not very friendly. Pool and pool area were clean. Breakfast area is too small. Outside sitting was available but temperature at 94 degrees at 9am was not inviting to sit outside. Breakfast could be better. Grits were undercooked, sausages were hard and tasteless, but there were lots of fruits, and the scrambled eggs with tiny pieces of ham very OK. The breakfast staff really makes an effort to keep up with the demand, but sometimes fail. Water tasted better than apple juice. There is no brand name products and the quality is questionable (such as the cream cheese and jelly). My carpet had two dirty spots on my side of the bed but the room smelled clean and was spotless when we arrived. Since this is an economical hotel, you will find that there are many families with children that tend to run in the hallways and make some noise in the morning, but we did not really care since we woke up early, but if you want to sleep late, do not choose this hotel. Also the breakfast is only available until 9:30 am. I believe it was 9:31 AM when they began to remove the plates and the food. It should be extended to 10AM. Also, a $10 hotel service fee for the use of the pool and breakfast? NOT!

This place was great stayed a week and enjoyed every minute..The bartender was the best spent every night by the pool enjoying yummy drinks!! Thanks so much Gary. I will definitely return had a great vacation!

Nice rooms good location real clean breakfast not that good nice big pool food served at pool and drinks

We stayed here for a trip to Epcot. It was a good value. Great location and decent free breakfast. No complaints.

The hotel is in a great location and there is a lot of food nearby. Target is a few minutes away and Disney is close by. We stayed with 3 small kids and the hotel was okay for what we needed. The room did smell musty when we arrived but it was a good value for the price.

The receptionist insisted on charging my credit card for the whole reservation amount, before letting me in. She double charged me and I had to speak to the accountant to the resolve the problem.

The continental breakfast was not all that appetizing. Very cheaply done... But the hotel was very nice!

Good for the price. Decent enough. Place is near attraction.
