I had an extended four week stay at this Hotel. I have travelled all over the country staying at many hotels for business. This stay here at The Clarion Universal Area, was an unbelievable experience. The owners, Management team, Staff, and all employees, were top notch, professional, extremely acccomodating, and downright quality people. The rooms are all brand new, totally... More

We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and could not have been more pleased. First, the location was perfect for our visit to Universal Studios - it is located on a very quiet street less then two minutes from Universal's parking garage, you could walk it if you really wanted. Very nice, newer appearing area. The hotel staff was... More

Pleasantly surpsrised. They are renovating, but the room was clean and very nice. Management staff very friendly and helpful. It will be nice when the renovations are complete. I will stay here again when I am in the area on business.

The picture must be old because I just stayed there and the place was just completely redone. In-fact the back half still had the construction equipment. The best part was having drinks at the Tiki Bar by the pool. The next best thing was eating at the Indian Restaurant that's attached to the hotel. I'm not a big fan of... More

Have not stayed at very many Clarions, but so far this one is the best! The rooms give it an upscale look. My best part of the day was just sitting in the pool area and relaxing. The on site restaurants are also wonderful. My family ate at tabla regularly in the evenings. The staff and service was good. For... More

The place was totally transformed from my last stay 2 years ago. It appears as if they demolished and rebuilt the hotel. The tiki bar has always been my favorite place and this time it was redone. Much nicer. The rooms are a value for the money! My room had been totally refurbished. It looked like a modern upscale layout.... More

The air conditioner worked perfect in fact my husband said it was to damn cold ...We had a 2nd floor room facing the pool. Pool and jacuzzi were... More

We stayed here last week, and made only one request: a room in a quiet spot, away from elevators, ice machines, stairwells, etc. We just wanted to be able to get some sleep. Instead, we were given a room on a side of the hotel that was being refurbished. There was no place to park, as the parking lot was... More

They have put a lot of renovation into to this property but its design is still so Days Inn it should not be a Clarion. No elevator. Rooms face street/parking lot to hear all people coming and going including luggage rolled along cement of walkway and parking lot. The decor is deco with one DARK purple wall and very dark... More
