Clarion Suites Maingate

Kissimmee, Orlando

The hotel

Close enough to the excitement of Orlando but removed enough to enjoy peace and quiet at the end of the day, the Clarion Suites Maingate offers family-friendly accommodation with spacious guest rooms easily accommodating up to six people. Kids will love the water play area, giving parents a chance to chill out by the poolside or in the hot tub. A complimentary hot breakfast buffet (maximum two people per room per day) gets the day off to a good start with alfresco dining allowing you to make the most of the sunshine. There are plenty of restaurants close by and Jumbo’s Eatery is highly recommended for breakfast. Just outside of Jumbo's is Pixie’s Java Café, fantastic for coffee-to-go with a chocolate croissant perhaps! Walt Disney World Resort is reassuringly close by as is SeaWorld® Orlando, Universal Orlando Resort™ and shopping malls galore.

We recently stayed here at this hotel for 5 days. This is our 8th visit to Orlando. We have stayed at many places from Disney resorts to condo’s to basic hotels. We have found our place! The Clarion Suites is affordable, in a great location, and VERY clean! The pool area is very nice. The staff is great. We will definitely stay here again!!!!

I was disappointed in only receiving 2 breakfast vouchers for our family of 4. I paid for a room for 4 people and picked this hotel for its location and thinking we would get free breakfasts for all of us. But found out after booking that we had to pay extra money ($6 per child $8 per adult per day) for more than 2 people. Rooms need new… Read more

But found out after booking that we had to pay extra money ($6 per child $8 per adult per day) for more than 2 people. Rooms need new carpeting as there were many stains and vacuum tears and tub hasn’t been cleaned thoroughly in a long time. Won’t be a repeat visitor for these reasons. Read less

We recently stayed at Clarion Suites Maingate during our first trip to Florida in April. Overall its a great value for money hotel that doesn't break the bank and mostly ticks all of the boxes. I'll outline all elements of the hotel below with a brief overview of each. Rooms Predominantly great rooms, theyre comfy and spacious, and come complete with more than a basic package. Including two beds, a sofa, kettle, fridge, micorwave, coffee machine amd air conditioning unit. However, the bathrooms are a little dated, the toilet ran through the night and the shower wasn't great. Location If you're going to Disneyworld this hotel is amazing. Its just a few miles away to the point you can see the fireworks every night if your room is on the top floor. Universal and International Drive are around a 15 minute drive. It offers free shuttles in a morning to all the parks if you dont have a car. The downside of its Disney location, and the fact that it's not in the middle Orlando is the local restaurants use it as a bit of a tourist trap. Everything in the surrounding area is expensive. Pool The photos of this place don't doit justice, I was pleasantly surprised. The pool is a lot bigger than it initially looks. They have a drinks hut located next to the pool which when open (weekend evenings only) is great. And the bartender is a lot of fun. We were big fans of hers. This place would benefit from being open every day at all hours like most holiday destinations. Other annoying elements of the pool, they dont play music despite having speakers everywhere (that'd hel pl drown out the noise of screamining children) and they have this mushroom shaped water feature which is really noisy and they leave on 24/7. If you're a light sleeper this will be your nemesis. Reception The reception area is great. Theres always a member of staff on the desk to assist you and they have a ticket purchasing kiosk here too offering tickets at reasonable prices. If you're someone who likes to see holiday reps from your airline sitting around providing information or putting on meet and greets you won't see that here. Food The breakfast buffet is decent, theres enough options available to make sure you dont get bored over a two week stay. The Mickey Mouse waffles you make yourself is a nice touch. They put on snack food through the day but they dont have a restaurant for evening meals but see local amenities section for options. Local Amenities Close by locations (within a fifteen minute walk) include TGI Fridays, Cracker Barrel, Cicis Pizza, Red Lobster, Subway a few Italians and steak houses, Indian, Japanese and Chinese takeways, several novelty gift shops, 2 miniature golf courses and a fantastic cinema called Studio Movie Grill. Keep an eye out for Cicis Pizza vouchers. They doa pizza buffet that is fantastic and dirt cheap. Overall, this is a nice little hotel conviniently located, that offers a pleasant stay at a fraction the price of some other Florida hotels. Its perfectly suited to families who are up early and visiting the parks and need a base to come back to in afternoons and relax. Read less

If your budget is limited and you are hoping to save some dough on your Disney vacation, The Clarion Suites are a good option. Located on the main tourist drag not far from the entrance to Disney World, the location can't be beat. The sprawling property is set back from the highway which eliminates traffic noise. Rooms are spartan, but spacious. Because of its popularity, it is running at full capacity most of the time which means that you may encounter crowds at breakfast and in the pool area. The staff is efficient and professional. Rooms are clean and fully equipped with refrigerators and microwaves. A free shuttle provides transportation to the theme parks while you take advantage of the free parking for guests at the hotel. Read less
