“Gem of a Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Booked through the hotel's website and found an amazing deal at $49.99 per night. I stayed here last year when it was formerly "Clarion Hotel Maingate".

Checking in was a breeze with Estrella (nights) and she gave us great tips and recommendations in the local area. I needed to get to a drug store late at night and she pointed us to the closest Target store down the road. Estrella uses her knowledge of the area and friendly engaging way to help the guests who have all types of questions and needs.

My room was on the 3rd floor and I was very happy and surprised at how nice it was - brand new carpeting, new flat screen TV, nice toiletries, safe deposit box, very fluffy and plushy thick bath towels, fridge/microwave and really extremely comfortable beds. The room looked brand new and looked clean and new. We got all sorts of channels on the TV. Oh, did I mention this hotel offers free parking and WI-FI?

If you're traveling without your tablets or laptops, you can use one of the two computers that are provided for guests to print out boarding passes or check email. Caution: printing will cost you .50 cents per page.

I hade an issue with accessing my safe deposit box, so the very handsome and efficient maintenance man, Karel came to my rescue and opened my safety box for me. Danke Karel!

Parking spaces were plentiful. I noticed there was a ticketing center at the hotel in case you want to buy your amusement park tickets and skip those long lines at Disney. I was able to purchase some reader eyeglasses in the hotel's gift shop for a few bucks.

Laundry is on the 2nd floor at $2.00 for wash and $2.00 for drying. You can purchase detergent/bleach at the hotel's gift shop.

If you are hungry, you can walk to nearby restaurants - I remember a Denny's was next door.
We drove down the road and ate breakfast one morning at Cracker Barrel.

On the day we checked out, it was raining. I saw a family asking front desk receptionist (day) Amina for help in getting transportation to the shopping mall, and within minutes, Amina had taken care of the transportation needs for the family.

From the 3rd floor, we had a pool view. I can tell that the pool area and furniture had gone through recent upgrades and renovations. Due to the rains, we did not use the pool.

It seems that this hotel has very capable, efficient, happy, and equipped employees who enjoy making guests happy and who enjoy their jobs at the Clarion Maingate.

Thanks to Estrella, Amina and Karel for making our stay a happy one!

Hotel is very clean. Staff were nice. The pool was nice & clean as well. The guy running the outdoor tiki bar was very friendly. My only complaint was the issue with our bath tub. We always had COLD water. When we reported the issue we were told to turn on the water & let
it run 10-15 min. Letting it run fixed the problem however this is a big INCONVIENCE when your trying to get ready to be somewhere on time. We would probably stay here again....

The hotel was excellent. The staff was freindly and check in and out was fast. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The breakfest was waffles ,sausage, breads, and pasteries.

I will definitely stay here again. It USED to be a Clarion, but now is a Comfort Inn. I loved the location, the staff was super friendly and helpful, the hallways, lobby, and room were all very clean (even brand new mattresses), and the free breakfast was great (fresh waffles, sausage, eggs, etc). If you are going to Disney World, beware that the shuttle service is very limited. But if you're driving, you can use the road out of the back of the hotel and avoid Hwy 192 altogether (faster and less stressful, but you won't see the big entrance sign to Disney World). For the price, I couldn't have asked for more at this hotel. This Comfort Inn was definitely full of comfort! :)

This hotel was recently renovated and the name changed (from Clarion), but the management is the same (or so I was told). We have stayed in a number of the Choice Hotels options near Disney, and this is a decent choice. We stayed on the 5th floor and there was a water pressure issue one morning. Our primary problem with the room were the mattresses, which were very very soft, and to us, very uncomfortable. There were also some housekeeping issues such as no towels by the pool (they were brought pretty quickly when I asked for some) and the housekeeper knocking on our door to clean at 8:30 AM, which I think is too early. But the place was basically clean, the staff friendly, and the breakfast was pretty good including including waffles, eggs, potatoes, cereal, breads.

We stayed here for 2 nights while in the Kissimmee/Orlando area visiting relatives. We were very happy with everything about this hotel - accomodations, food, beds, price. There were 3 elevators in this hotel so there was never a wait to get to your room or to the lobby. We will definitely return to this Comfort Inn when we are in the area. They went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Room Tip: We were on the front of the building facing the main highway and didn't hear any street noise.

We stayed here two nights while going to Disney World. The hotel has recently been changed from a Clarion and has been refurbished. Our room was clean and comfortable. It is near the entrance to all the Disney Parks from 192 west of I-4. We did not use the pool so I can't comment on it. The breakfast was more than the usual included breakfast with waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, cereals, fruit, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although they advertise a free shuttle to the parks, we didn't use it because the times it ran were not convenient. It runs to Universal Studios, Sea World, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot (once in the Disney property you can use their transportation to get to the park you want to visit). We expect to use this hotel again.

Room Tip: They have rooms available with 2 queens and a sofa bed that will accommodate up to 6 people if you n...
