We had a full day at Disney ahead of us prior to arriving at the Clarion Inn, concerned about our room being given to another individual, my husband called ahead and we were assured that a late check in would be no issue, a pleasant surprise. When we arrived at Clarion Inn, we checked in and then spoke with the Vacation Desk prior...

I enjoyed my stay here as it was close to Disney w/o being on Disney property. I like the location as if you stay on that road it goes right by the entrance to Universal Studios. The room was clean and very nice for a basic hotel room. The beds were comfortable. The staff was nice and helpful. I didn't... More

We enjoyed our stay @ the Clarion, and Leela helped us with our requests at the front desk. Kudos to her for doing such a good job! Great pool -- really warm just the way I like it in January. Good location.

It has taken me a little while to get round to writing this review, but thought i would still take the time to write it. We stayed at the Clarion in September for just over 2 weeks.

This is one of the few negative reviews I have written, but this place doesn't measure up. We were checking in a little early, the front desk said they would see if the room had been cleaned.

We had stayed at this hotel over 14 years ago back when it was the Comfort Inn, but returned last week for a 5 night stay. At $53 a room, we weren't expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised in just about all areas of the Clarion. We thoroughly inspected the room upon arrival, was completely clean. Our request for a... More

Clean, great location, great value! Right across from Downtown Disney and near MANY restaurants! I'm not fond of outside entrances but for the price I could deal. I'd stay again based on the value and location!

The location is good because it's between Disney and Universal so it may be quite convenient for some and is definitely very affordable. The rooms are what you'd expect at this price range, but if you get the side facing the highway, it might be slightly loud. My biggest problem was that for a 4 night stay, we didn't have... More
