Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista
Ranked #179 of 341 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We recently stayed five nights at the Clarion Inn LBV and were very happy with the accommodations and services.

Noise: We were facing the parking lot so we didn't have any noise issues (aside from the odd loud neighbour). I can see how it may be loud on the side facing the freeway.

Room: The room was very clean and was cleaned every day. We had a small issue with the room safe (low batteries) but security came immediately to fix it.

Location: Excellent location for the parks. A very short walk to a grocery store, local brew pub. Although we did not have a car, we only used the free hotel shuttle to the parks twice. It was not always the most convenient in terms of departure times. Instead we used the public transit Lynx bus #50 to get around. Great deal ($2 per person each way) and it runs every half hour from early morning until late at night. It took us to MK transfer centre so we could go to MK or Epcot; goes right past Downtown Disney and we even used it to transfer to a bus to Universal. Very convenient for those of us who aren't adverse to using public transport.

Food: We didn't eat on site so cannot comment. The store in the lobby was a very convenient place to pick up fresh fruit and other breakfast items, and was open late.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay and the price is exceptional considering its close proximity to the Disney parks.

Family of four (including 2 teenage boys) stayed here in mid June for 7 nights! Very pleased with the accommodations! The room provided a safe, mini coffee pot (bring coffee singles) microwave and refrigerator. The hotel sits between Disney (less than a mile to WDW's "Back Gate"), Universal and Sea World. There were several nearby restaurants, both in the fast food & full service variety. The hotel has a small convenience store in the lobby. Very pleased with all service & interaction with all staff - all very attentive, hotel was very clean & nicely appointed. Overall, A very nice stay. I would recommend to family & friends! We got an excellent deal at $63.00 per night! Having stayed on WDW property every trip in the past, the savings on this hotel stay equaled our dining budget for the week! :)

Room Tip: Request room facing the parking lot! The other side is on I4 side - noise not terrible, but noticeable!

Room Tip: Request a room facing the parking lot for a quieter stay!

Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista is a fairly reasonable hotel and reflective of the fairly cheap rates. We only stayed one night but the room was clean. We were visiting Universal which is about 6 miles away. There are plenty of restaurants/fast food places close by which is good since the food in the bar was not great. We didn't take the shuttle because the times did not suit. We drove to the resort instead. If you need to buy park tickets they have a desk in the lobby with extremely helpful staff.
You may get a room on the I4 facing side of the hotel. We were lucky and got a room on the opposite side but the other people in our party were on the I4 side. It is noisy but they said that they were so tired from our day in Universal that they never even heard the traffic.
The hotel does have free wifi which is always useful. Overall the hotel is ok if all you want is a place fairly close to the parks to rest your head at night. Don't expect anything special.

First of all let me state, this hotel is very basic. What you pay for is what you get. If you want luxury, this hotel is not for you.
We stayed here for two weeks from 4/6/13 till 18/6/13. All I can say is, I would definitely stay here again and I would definitely recommend. For the most part staff was friendly, welcoming and helpful - there was one staff member that had a bit of attitude, she worked in the hotel shop.
Our room was on the ground floor, away from the freeway, which I guess is designed to be a disabled room. The room was clean and had fresh towels, toiletries and a room clean daily.
The hotel offered free shuttles to all the disney parks, seaworld and even universal studios which virtually eradicated the need for hire car.
This hotel also benefits from a great location. There is an abundance of restaurants, bars & supermarkets in the local area, as well as a short bus journey to downtown disney or i-Drive, just jump on the Number 50 lynx bus.

Room Tip: Before you arrive, request a room away from the highway. They will be more than happy to do this for...

We arrived at this hotel on 21st June for a seven day stay. Having read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor particularly about rude staff we decided to go ahead anyway. On arrival after a long flight from U.K. we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady at registration who obliged our request for a 1st floor room on the poolside of Hotel. The room in block 2 was very clean with two double beds a microwave oven and fridge iron and ironing board. The decor was a little on the dark side but room appeared to have been recently refurbished. Our room was in block 2 which opens up to the back of the hotel and about 300 metres from the busy Interstate 4. The noise from the road however did not bother us. The pools were very clean and well maintained . The hotel is situated within large well landscaped grounds and there is a security hut at the drive in entrance. There is a small bar the Comfort Zone next to the restaraunt and bar prices are reasonable with happy hour between 5 and 7pm. Bar staff are very friendly particularly Eric who looked after us with a welcoming smile every time we entered . We found no problem with any staff all of which were polite and very helpful. We did not eat at the restaraunt apart from the bar which do a nice fish and chips. The pizzas were also very popular with guests. This hotel is ideally located for families wishing to visit the Disney Parks etc. Downtown Disney is about 5 min drive away. There are also a wide selection of bars and restaraunts within walking distance. We have no real criticisms of this Hotel other than the opening time of the bar at 5pm. It could be earlier for guests. Our stay overall was very pleasant and we would recomend it particularly for families wishing to visit Disney area.
