Clarion Inn & Suites At International Drive
Ranked #287 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The hotel staff were fabulous, very helpful and extremely nice. The room was clean, smelled clean (not musty, or stale), bed was comfortable, surroundings were quiet (no noises from outside or the hallway). Included daily breakfast was great (real food - not just a roll and coffee). Wi-fi worked fine. Far better than the overpriced, horrible "5 star" hotel I stayed at last year. I will stay here any time I am in the Orlando area from here on. Very happy with my experience, and recommend them highly.

Used this place as part of a package through Kenwood Travel. On arrival was not impressed with the reception area and was less than impressed with the $3.50 per day for porterage and incidentals. We carried our own luggage both to and from our room and to our knowledge incurred no incidental charges however $24.5 was charged to our visa card for these "Services". The room was in need of a makeover and had an odour about it. Our window was screwed together and would not open, to afford any natural ventilation. On the positive side, the hotel did serve a cooked breakfast and cold meats + a selection of cereals. There was a shuttle to Disney and Universal but the return was not until 18:30 & 22:00, which made for a long day. Good location just off Int Drive and the I-Ride took you to the outlets and eateries for $1.50 per journey (under 12s free). Free Wi-Fi and internet access available. Gym on site but both treadmills out of service during our stay. Strangely, the hotel cafe/bar was closed during the weekend whilst we were there.

We stayed three nights and are really pleased and satisfied with the service. We stayed in a king sized room and it was great but the room is humide, smells a little weird. We would really recommend Nate in the bar, such a great guy and bartender!! Fabulous service !! Great pool, free wi-fi, free parking, and possibility to do laundry! Two supermarkets across the street.

Well we stayed at this hotel for one night and I regret I stayed. AT the beginning my gut said to leave but I didn't want to drive around looking for a hotel Labor Day Weekend. I made reservations under the assumption I had a microwave and refrige like Choice hotels say they have upon check in I was immediately told I won't have one unless I pay $30 more! I said I needed one for medicine we went to the room it was dirty mold on the curtains, the bathroom floor was dirty there was a semi outside the window that made soo much noise or was it the a/c? and of course no fridge I went back and Eric said he'd call to have the problems fixed and didn't seem surprised it happened and never said sorry he assigned another room and I asked does it have a fridge and he said its extra once again I said ok bc obviously he was not in the mood for customer service so they scammed me out of the extra 30 dollars which I would have let go but when I got to the room there were cigarette burns in the curtain we rust in the shower, the TV had no channels appropriate for children Wi-Fi never worked and no extra blankets, the hot water didn't work I can go on and on but to top the cake we left our luggage by the tile floor by the fridge and when we got back the fridge I paid 30 for wasn't working and there was a huge puddle all over the floor I had to clean up that also soaked all our luggage so we had to wear the same clothes the next day bc we didn't have much for our one night getaway! To end the trip as I was in the bathroom I noticed a bed bug on the towel which I wrapped up and brought to checkout again no surprise or apology but he seemed new but again no manager or apology. Then we went to the "Free" breakfast that they charge you 2.00 for a juice or any drink unless you want water or coffee again kids don't drink coffee so defiantly not a family friendly hotel! Our room was also supposedly a balcony over the pool no we were over a trashy dirt pit with yellow tape up around a broken Jacuzzi! Don't Stay Here! After paying 30 for the fridge that didn't work I could've stayed at the Disney resort that actually is 4 miles away they are more like 15 mils away so don't believe there mileage chart . I have pictures I will download and add later so stay tuned!

Room Tip: At a different hotel!

A/C units don't cool off the room at all. Notified manager who supposed to contact maintenance but he never did. Ask next manager and he promise to send someone in the morning or he will move me to another room. Came back in the morning and the next manager had no record of my problem with the A/C. Finally someone show up from maintenance; check the A/C came back and told me that it was fixed. A/C still not working after several hours. Finally move out of room on my last night. In the morning, while I was leaving, a young couple was given the same room overnight and asked me if I have any issues with the A/C.

The asset of this place is its location. It is a 10 or so minute walk to the convention center. The rooms were fine, the pool was nice, the staff were fine. The breakfast buffet is a little thin, and I have never been charged before for orange juice for breakfast! Also, there is a $3.50 services charge per night, which (according to a confused explanation by a staffer) is for the safe sort of, even if you don't use it. Since I was here with a conference, all the restaurants nearby were always packed, but the 7-11 across the main road actually has good food with no line.
