This place was clean, comfortable, and affordable. Great pool and good location by Universal Studios....only con was no elevator to get to second floor. Lobby was beautifully designed. A grade in my book.

We are at the airport about to climb onboard the first of our flights home. Already we are reminiscing about our time at this hotel. Location is ideal for universal (we used Uber @$5.85 each way - the minimum fare. It was cheaper than the $20 parking and meant I could have a few beers before leaving the park, the... More

Lovely stay at the Clarion Inn & Suites. The hotel has recently been renovated and the rooms look new, light and airy and greatly decorated. The place is quiet. we had a room facing the small courtyard/garden area which was lovely in the night. Proximity to Universal Orlando which is where we spent most of our time is great! 15... More

Newly renovated and perfect location. Universal is across the street. 10 minutes to park entrance. They also have a free shuttle that will take you to several of the amusement parks in the area.

This was only a one night stay, simply for a place to sleep. Checking in was easy and the front desk attendant was polite. The property is right next to a construction zone, but on the weekends they don't work--so noise was not a problem. Upon arrival in our room, we were pleasantly surprised as the pictures matched. Newly remodeled... More
