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!
