“clean, good location, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Stayed from the 21.12.12. - 30.12.12, no problems with checking in or out. Room were clean and in good order, felt newly decorated and carpeted. so handy having microwave and fridge. We found the rooms very roomy, not sure what people are expecting when they indicate that the room is small!! our room was at the back of the main entrance, nice and quite.
Breakfast was plentiful with hot and cold selections, great to be included in price.
We relied on the shuttle service which was interesting, it covered a variety of hotels and never appeared to take the same route twice, it was often full with people having to stand and time keeping was an issue. However it did not dampen our holiday and found that compared to other hotels that it covered we had a better service, also it is free of charge and you can hop from park to park to get a pick up that suites your time.
Just across the road is a supermarket and lots of places to dine, there is a great Italian that did the most amazing Pizza pie.
We found this hotel catered to all our needs and found it great value for money.

The hotel is not too far from Magic KingdOm. We rented a car but even if you don't they provide shuttle to parks. The rooms are not trendy and are very basic, but clean and well equipped. The breakfast at Jumbo's comes free which is great. They had scrambled eggs with cheese, hash browns, bagels, bread, cereals, pancakes, juices, coffee...pretty good value. I liked the hotel.
And the gift shop downstairs is helpful. We bought rain ponchos which were useful in the rain!

The hotel needs renovation and the check-in clerk needs racial discrimination trainings. I checked into this Clarion Maingate hotel around 10PM on Sunday 12/23/2012 for a four days Christmas Disney family vacation. Despite the nice apperance at the front the hotel is a run down place. The double queen bed room we were given is small for a suite. The sink clogged and the shower head leaked. Three of my children, my wife and I, we all started to have sinus problem on the first night!
What worse is the check-in clerk seemed to have issues against Asian guests. She demanded that I write down the names of every family members in order to check in, something I've never experienced at other hotels. Of all people, this clerk should know better than to discriminate other race. I hope the hotel management can read this and provide her the proper trainings.
I will not come back to the Clarion Maingate or any of the ChoiceHotels hotels. When booking a suite there is not much difference in costs between ChoiceHotels and other established hotel chains such as Hiltons or Mariott. I'd rather pay $10-$20 more a day to stay at ones that treat you as guests.

Room Tip: Our room in the back of the hotel is small and run down.

Our party of 10 stayed here from Dec. 22 -27, 2012. Very accommodating, we had adjoining rooms. The rooms were freshly painted and clean. Desk and concierge were helpful. Grounds lovely. Pool area clean (i am fussy about clean pools). Location was great. Lots of eateries and shopping close. Not to mention the proximity to the theme parks. Free shuttle, but would suggest to take own car to parks, our shuttle was an hour and a half late picking us up from Disney (made for some frazzled nerves as we had 4 little ones falling asleep). Would suggest to pay the extra $10 for the ground floor. Clean laundry on sight. Sufficient breakfast.

Room Tip: Ground floor pool end.

My daughter and I spent the first week of November, 2012, at the Clarion Maingate. From the moment we arrived late that night, the staff was so helpful and friendly. The room was new and very clean. Every morning we were treated to a spectacular breakfast buffet by friendly, professional serving staff. We felt right at home during our stay. We had so many questions each day and everyone was so willing to help and sincerely happy to do it. The entire property was also clean and very attactive. We would definately go back and recommend to everyone to stay there. Honestly it should be rated a 5-star hotel!

We have stayed here the last 3 years on our trips to Florida. Since our last visit they changed from a Comfort Suites to a Clarion. No real differences yet. Breakfast was good for a hotel except they did not have waffles which was a big downer. Prior to changing they had flavored waffels and Mickey Shaped waffles which were very good. The only other downfall is the Pool Bar is closed and you have to go to the restaurant now to get drinks or food. Its not far but out of the fence and away harder to watch children in the pool if you need a drink or a bite to eat. Pool was a bit colder then normal not sure if the heater was working properly or not.Other then that we had a great stay again, and we will stay there again.

This hotel is decent. Nothing spectacular, but we stayed here during our trip to Disney World so it was basically just a place to sleep and shower.

We had two rooms side by side, and both were kind of stinky - that would be my only major complaint. Not sure if it was the AC or just to much dampness in the room.

Free breakfast was nice and had lots of options. Get down there early though if you want a table, it gets busy!!!

Pool and hot tub were alright, pool bar had tasty drinks!

Overall the hotel is pretty good and got the job done for what we needed it for!
