Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista

Reviewed August 3, 2013

I am currently staying at the Clarion and the room is nice and the staff have been helpful. This is not a new property; however, the management is doing a good job with the facility. I would come back again.

We stayed here for one night in May before moving on elsewhere. It's an older motel that has been updated. We were lucky to get a first floor room facing the parking lot (which is the quieter side). The rooms have been updated with new bedding and LCD TV's. The rooms are not large but comfortable. Breakfast was not provided and we did not try it. It is close enough to Downtown Disney that you could walk there if you wanted, but my wife and son actually used the bus that comes by every 1/2 hour. The splash zone is nice for younger kids. Also nice that there is security.
Nothing fancy but fine given the price point and location.

Room Tip: try to get a room facing the parking lot as that is the side away from the highway noise.

Thank you for your review. Yes we are in a good location for all the theme parks and other attractions. And our splash zone is indeed something extra that the kids really enjoy.

Stayed for 6 nights and was very nice. I was a little concerned when I saw that my room faced the intersate but once in the room it was quiet and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and checking in and out was a breeze. Close to EVERYTHING!!!

Bet Lyn (Guest Service) should be proud of the staff and the grounds.

When returning to Orlando this will be my FIRST CHOICE!!!

Stayed for 7 relaxing nights - always a nice place to rest our weary theme park ravaged bodies. Clean, moderate and comfortable and enough of a resort feel to give you that "vacation" experience. The beds were nice and the housekeeping added cute touches (like posing our stuffed animals for us to discover upon return from the Magic Kingdom.) The pool was large and never crowded. I would skip the buffet, but the bar/grill place served us a delicious pizza, had a incredible happy hour deal and the bartender on. I had a great time and since I am going though a recent divorce - I reveled in the deal of a lifetime paired with the bonding, healing time we all needed. Many thanks to Clarion staff and management.

Room Tip: Ditch the bedspreads and don't place anything in front of the AC device.

There's nothing like needing to get away and that getaway is like a good meal you've been wanting - it hits the spot! It's great our staff, in all areas, went the extra mile to make you feel at home.

Stayed here for two nights. I was greeted by Mercedes at the front desk who was very sweet and so helpful to find a place to eat in the area. The two women at the ticket counter were also very friendly and helpful. Don't eat the buffet it's disgusting and overpriced. Definitely not worth the price, venture down to Waffle House right down the street. I checked the bed for bedbugs as I always do at any hotel and noticed the bed didnt even have a fitted sheet, it had two top sheets tucked into the mattress which came apart as you slept exposing your body to the bare mattress. Nasty. I also woke up the next morning with a rash all over my body which seemed to progressively get worse the 2nd morning I woke up. There was also a lot of some sort of brigade of South American girls staying there who will follow you to universal and Disney in their packs and scream and clap in long lines until you want to kill yourself. From what I hear they are all over in the summer time and they are really annoying. If you'd not only like to wait in lines with them but also reside with them for a couple days then stay at the clarion. It's itchtastic.

Thank you, we appreciate constructive comments. In the future, we are looking into changing the bedding at our hotel and will take your comments into consideration. The buffet restaurant menu items change daily so that there is always something added to please most everyone. Our Mickey Mouse Belgian waffles are a big hit and kids 9 and under eat free (with a paying adult) to make it more economical. The Bar & Grille provides an alternative to buffet style. They serve typical American fare; hot wings, fish n’ chips, grilled hamburgers and french fries. Summer time is the time for South Americans to travel especially in the two weeks in the middle of July. We welcome all to enjoy our great location and hotel.

We booked this room at $45 a night thinking it was a steal since it had an average 4 star review at the site we were using. We didn't need anything fancy since we weren't going to spend a lot of time in the hotel anyway, but we wanted a comfortable stay. First, let me say that our building was under construction so there was no parking close to our room. We went to the grocery store on our second day and when we got back to the hotel the locks on the door had been changed. The gate guard didn't tell us. The maids we spoke to were rude about it. When we got our room key changed at the lobby (not a short walk from our room), nobody even apologized for the inconvenience.

Pros:
-This hotel is in a good location. There are some good restaurants/bars in walking distance. You can drive to Disney in about 10 minutes.
-The price is great for those vacationing on a budget.
-A security station is posted at the hotel entrance.
-The room is clean (except for some old stains in the tub).

Cons:
-Staff is rude. Nobody even answered the phone the first few times we called to say we were checking in late.
-The room had a mildew smell.
-Water pressure in the shower is very weak. I had to stay in longer to rinse all the shampoo out of my hair.

Recently stayed at the Clarion Inn for 12 nights. Very clean and well maintained. Prompt check in and check out. Close to many restaurants and shopping. Very friendly staff. Great bang for your buck. Offers free shuttle service as well but can't comment as I didnt use it. Breakfast buffet has good variety and kids under 9 eat free with a paying adult. My son really enjoyed the mickey mouse waffles. Food in hotel bar area was excellent especially after a long day of travelling form Canada. Two pools were clean. Lots of towels available. Would definately recommend this to friends and family.

Room Tip: Request a room facing parking lot as this hotel is close to the highway. Quieter.
