    Ok hotel

    The hotel is well located, at a walking distance from Universal Studios. There’s an amazing Indian restaurant within the hotel where I’ve had the best butter chicken ever! Beware of the room for 6! It’s more like 5 adults or 4 adults and 2 kids. The sofa bed is more like a futon bed, very thin and not comfortable at all! Apart from that we had a good stay!

    Wonderfully Suprised...1st Time Stayer

    BLESS THE CLARION! Had the worst experience w the La Quinta Universal area when the manager canceled my reservation less than 24 hours before check-in. Scrambling to find a hotel since the customer service for Wyndham/LaQuinta was absolutely useless so decided to reserve with the Clarion hoping for the best. It all started with the call with Jessica at the front desk. I told her my hassle and she was so receptive and calming and understanding and positive. Check-in with Yousef was smooth, no problems no issues, easy going. The room was wonderful! Completely clean, easily accessible, clean beds/towels. Mini fridge, coffee machine, etc. I explored and the fitness center was amazing. Pool and hot tub were GREAT! The bar was awesome! The roast Cafe's crossaint breakfast sandwich was sooooo good! The staff was the nicest. Though I didn't take their shuttle service their schedule was WAY BETTER than anything La Quinta had. The times were better. It's actually walkable to the parks. Though I didn't eat at the indian restaurant onsite, it smelled SOOOO GOOD! My family was still staying at the La Quinta-Wyndham Universal Area so I visited them before leaving back to Miami and that place was a disaster. Smelled moldy/dingy/the breakfast looked barely edible, and the manager was rudely talking down to a customer that had a room complaint. Apparently at the Clarion, it wasn't their first experience hosting a customer that had a previous issue with the La Quinta manager, Jay. I couldn't be happier that I experience the Clarion.....we are going back in January and my family is already booking our stay at The Clarion.....PROUDLY! THANK YOU!!!

    Great value and service

    We stayed for 2 nights and can’t fault it. The service at check in was brilliant. We got upgraded to a suite which was lovely and spacious. The hot tub was lovely especially during the day whilst the hotel was empty. It was great that there was an Indian restaurant in the hotel which we ate at twice. Great location near Orlando with a free shuttle plus walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants. I would definitely stay again.

    Dirty, Disgusting and Proud of It!

    This place is dirty, disgusting and proud of it. Avoid it. At first, it was like a typical 2 star hotel. Looks okay, but on a deep inspection, it’s ehhh. But the service here is terrible. And it’s so unsanitary, I’m surprise it passes a health inspection. So on a Saturday night, they ran out of clean towels. No more clean towels for any guests. They said to “try again tomorrow or Monday”. So basically, I have to go to bed dirty or use a wet towel or just be disgusting. This place is unsanitary. And then when I called customer service, they told me that I should ask the front desk in the morning. So no one actually cares! No one will bring a clean towel even when they are available. And no one knows if they will have clean towels before checkout even. This is definitely one of the worst hotel experiences I’ve had. I won’t be back. I actually considered leaving early just to get a clean shower. Avoid this place. Or bring your own towels and linens. Disgusting!!

    Clean place to stay

    Stayed here for four nights during my annual trip to Universal. The lobby was clean, has a coffee shop and Universal ticket counter. Originally booked a suite but they changed me upon arrival to a double queen, not a problem, but then they never changed my room rate to match. The room was very nice and clean. Bed was clean and comfortable, floors were clean, everything worked. I thought it was quiet, the room faced the courtyard. I used the shuttle to the park once, very efficient, however, I walked the other times, both there and back. My Garmin clocked from the hotel to city walk at just over 1 mile one way. Easy and safe walk.
