This was our first time staying at this hotel and we absolutely loved it!!! The staff was very friendly and the room was great!! The room was big, clean and contained a pretty big refrigerator. The pool was big and clean. There are plenty of off site restaurants The Disney parks aren't far at all from the hotel and the hotel runs a shuttle to all parks in the area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor on the pool side of the hotel.

For the money, this place is great! Clean room and good room service each day. I booked this hotel on booking.com for $50 per night. Friendly staff at front desk for check in, followed by phone call to room to make sure everything was ok. It was perfect for our three days in the Disney parks on a budget. We had free breakfast for 2 each day and added breakfast for 2 more which was $6 per person per day. Honestly, not worth it. Would just eat at McDonald's next time. Would stay here again at this price.

Well I thought I had read the reviews before I went, but maybe I missed something.....
Pros: Swimming pool clean . Big rooms, Location, Very cheap Hotel/Motel
Cons: Very, very thins walls, breakfast even if it is free for two people not worth it, pancakes where hard and cream cheese frozen twice really yuk, and the staff stand at the door like police to make sure you take nothing out with you, four days and no choice same food everyday. No air con in the breakfast room.
Pay a bit more and go to a better hotel it will be worth it in the end.

Room Tip: At the back by the car park

Thank your for your comments.
Regarding the breakfast buffet, it does not change day by day. However we offer a variety of items so our guests have many options. I will address your concerns about the pancakes and cream cheese. I am sorry about that. The staff member at the front door to Jumbos Eatery is there to greet our guests each morning and she also collects breakfast vouchers. The breakfast area is air-conditioned and seating is available. Additional seating is available in the outdoor patio area. Of course, the outdoor patio is not air-conditioned. But many of our guest like sitting outside, enjoying the courtyard and beautiful Florida weather.

The room was clean and large, fittings were in good order and it was well furnished. It is quite close to the I4 meaning Disney is very close.

Everyone comments on the breakfasts; these were fine - the only missing item was oatmeal - but for $2 or so you could get it in the coffee shop.

My only issue was asking for a spoon in the afternoon. I was told there was none. Even though the pixie rinkydink name coffee place was open and they sold stuff requiring spoons. I remain unimpressed.

we've stayed at the Clarion for 10 days, and just got back on Saturday. We travelled with our 2.5 year old, so needed a family friendly place. When we arrived at check-in, we got a very warm welcome from the gentleman at the front desk. When we got to our room, it was very nice and spacious, (we had a 2 double bed room, but all rooms also have a sleeper couch in it, which we didn't use but it's very nice to have, especially when travelling with a bigger family...). The hotel has 3 pools, 1 big one, 1 heated spa and a kiddiepool with water flowing from a mushroom overhead. The kiddiepool was a bit cold because the water keeps flowing, but my son didn't seem to mind as much as me haha. The location is great, even if you don't plan on renting a vehicle (which we did do), there are shops and restaurants at walking distance from the hotel, which is very convenient. If you plan on visiting the theme parks, they have free shuttle service to and from, also very nice, though we didn't use the service because we had a rental.
We met a lot of the staff during our stay, and everyone was always friendly and very helpful, especially Nicole (the account manager). Whatever question we had or assistance we needed, the was there to answer and help us. We highly recommend this hotel, and we will for sure be back when we're heading to Orlando again! Oh and as a sidenote, make sure to try out the Italian restaurant next door called Carabba's and the one at the Formosa Gardens village next door called Taste of China... great food at great prices... The restaurant on property (Jumbo's), we've tried roomservice one night, and the service itself was good (they call you before they come to your room, which is nice), but the food could have been a lot better...

The hotel is clean, inviting, with fantastic staff, The rooms are spacious and clean with breakfast usually included. They also have transportation to Disney World and Universal Studious.

Our downside is that there isn't a shuttle to either theme parks in the afternoon. The times the shuttle returns also aren't the best. So, if you miss the shuttle going or coming back you're paying for it. A taxi ride one way can be up to $25 from Disney World and around $50 from Universal.

Next time I will be staying at a Disney Resort but if you're ok with the shuttles and you know that you will not miss it or that you get there early enough to get a seat then this would be a great hotel for you.

Oh the shuttle drivers are sometimes not so nice.

Thank you for your kind words.
A current copy of the shuttle schedule to the theme parks is posted on our website. The service is very convenient if you plan on staying the day at the parks and are looking to save money on parking.
We look forward to hosting you again soon!

We finished our tour here before heading back to Gulf Coast for a month's rest. Strongly recommend this tour - we saw such a lot and we and our son loved it, and he learnt such a lot about American history etc. fantastic experience. We have now travelled around 28 states, plus West & East Canada on our 2011 & 2013 tours, and have loved them all. Strongly recommend both tours if people get the opportunity. This hotel is great for a quick stop in Orlando - well placed for everything with a nice big pool. It has changed hands since we last used it however - it used to be part of Comfort Suites group & sadly the gorgeous big hot tub I was looking forward to relaxing in was very weak in bubbles, and practically scalded me! Far too hot - it must have been over the recommended limit - no one was in it and I quickly realised why! Overall however basic suites which are great for a couple of nights etc. Friendly staff, recommend.

Thank you for your comments and recommendation.
We changed from a Comfort Suites to a Clarion Suites in April 2012. We are under the same ownership and management.
The hot tub is maintained at 103-degrees. This is under the recommended 104-degree temperature. It is checked regularly to ensure it is working properly and the temperature is being maintained.
We hope to see you again soon.
