“I was pleasantly surprised about the Clarion Inn and suites at International drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

I had to attend a medical convention at the Hilton Orlando which is roughly a block and a half from the Clarion Inn and Suites. We booked rooms in the Clarion because the Hilton would have cost approximately 250 a night and Clarion was roughly 75 dollars a night. When I read the past reviews of the Clarion I was kind of scared to spend four nights there but when I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean. It was large. There was a refrigerator in the room and bathroom sundries which was restocked every night. Our room overlooked the pool and had a nice view. What made the stay exceptional was the quality and demeanor of the help. Eric at the front desk was exceptionally nice and helpful. but all of the help were all very nice, pleasant and eager to help us with any and everything. The breakfast included in the price was also good with all kinds of cereals, coffee tea etc. My only complaint is that the breakfast room was small and it was hard to get a seat there and since it was cold outside in the early morning, we could not eat on their large patio.

Was the ambiance the same as the Hilton? No, but the stay at the Hilton would have come to a thousand dollars and the Hilton does not include breakfast either. The stay at the Clarion came to a little more than 300 dollars. Would I return the next time I have to attend the same convention? YES.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room with a view of the pool.

Stayed at The Clarion back in June 2013. The rooms were clean, and staff pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was adequate, with enough choice. However, there is $2 charge for orange juice.

The free shuttles to the theme parks were convenient. Although these were often late.

The hotel itself is in a good location. There is a Mcdonalds, Red Lobster and Dennys very close by.

Did my reservation thru Hotwire. Quick check in. Good front desk service. The room: nice decorated, excellent bed and pillows, furniture and flat 32 TV. Clean and spacious room. No small fridge but a decent hot breakfast.(I think that's the only reason why you pay the $3.95 Resort fee) It is kind of hard to get thru the stuff. The room is very small but once you beat the crowd you can enjoy your breakfast in the outside porch. Quality of sleep:POOR!!! I stayed in the first floor in one of the inside corners where the building entrance is and where the Ice machine,vending machine, and laundry is. Big mistake!! I went to bed around 11:00pm. Needless to say I could not sleep until 2 or 3 am. The noise of the entrance door opening and closing, the people talking, kids running, etc,etc, who can sleep? You get the idea. The hotel is a walking distance to the Orlando Convention Center and International Dr. A message for the cleaning lady. When you knock on the door, two things, dont do it like you want to knock the door down and please give at least 30 seconds for the person to answer you and dont OPEN the door and then run away!! Jesus!!!

Room Tip: Dont stay in the inside/hallways corners!!!

We stayed one night. The place smells bad, there were not enough pillows for the king bed and sofa sleeper. When we called down for more, they said they only had one pillow. It was cheap and it showed. Will not stay again, will advise others to stay away.

On reading the reviews for this hotel, I had my doubts about staying here but I have to say it was fine . The room was okay it was cleaned daily and fresh towels given daily . The free transportations and free breakfast were a bonus and the free wifi was brilliant and worked really well . The staff were very friendly and helped us when we needed it . All in all for the price we payed for 4 adults it was brilliant in a quiet nice area .
