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 Universal Orlando Resort™ and shopping malls galore.

We arrived and checked in ok. They gave us room 360 and sent us on our way. When we were walking to our room, most of the rooms down the hall from us had the curtains open and either had unmade beds or mattresses stacked on top of one another or were in some other type of maintenance/ housekeeping issue. We felt very secluded in the back of the hotel it was a little creepy. We arrived back to our room about 10 and the smoke alarm was chirping. My friend called the desk and they told us to remove the battery. We did and a but late I tried to take a shower. The little plunger wouldn't come up to turn the showerhead on. However the entire water spigot turned around and around. My friend tried as well with no luck. We asked the lady at the desk about it and she also came up to look. She could t get it either, so she gave us a different room. We moved to 308 and that was a little better the room was quiet and clean and we could shower. The beds were ok. But one of the mattresses was really saggy and definitely should have been replaced. We went to get breakfast the next morning and were given a paper To select 1 item from 3 different columns (I will include a picture). They were out of several items for the 5 days we were there. The third day I was only given 1 paper for breakfast. The 2 days previous I had picked up my friends food too while she was in the shower. The man ( not George) was trying to make a big deal out of giving me an additional menu for her. He reluctantly gave me one after I told him we were leaving after breakfast for the day. We got back to the room on day 3 and our key didnt work. We had to walk all the way down to the office again for them to fix out key . This also happened another time when we walked down to the laundry room. the morning we were leaving for the airport, the front doors were locked. I wanted to turn in my key and ended up missing our uber because of it. I rang the bell 3 times before the lady answered it. It was after the 6 am posted time so I not sure why it was locked. Overall I will say this. The rooms were clean and pretty nice, but the hotel could definitely use a lot of updating. I loved the laundry room, you pay with an app and it tells you when you was finished. It is about a 15 minute ride to the parks which is also a plus. Most of the staff were very nice, but it seemed several times like no one was on the same page. I doubt we would stay here again. Read less

The property has seen better days. It is in need of some major upkeep. The landscaping is all overgrown. The door lock key cards don't work well at all. The hot tub will probably never be repaired. The room's carpeting is musty. The ladies bathroom at the pool has no toilet seat. A/C units don't cool very well. Etc, etc. etc. Better find another… Read more

The pool was nice although the hot tub was not working. There was no room service because of COVID protocols, but I did not want anyone in my room. They took a while to find the package that I had delivered. Ashley at the front desk was very friendly. And the water in the bathroom was hot. Read less

First of all the surroundings of the "Hotel" if it can be called that, they are completely disgusting, the ice machines do not work, the elevator does not work after 9:00 pm, in the room, the air conditioning drain remains inside when we got up, what we stepped on was the completely wet carpet and at night it just stinked like bulging in addition to that the air filter was disgusting, we all ended up sick with cyinositis. We were walking with my 5-year-old daughter who wanted to play and she damaged two changes of clothes as she fell into the pool of dirty water. I had to call for clean towels and personal effects and they only brought us 3 towels when we told him that we were 5 guests. The offer they gave me when choosing the hotel was CONTINENTAL breakfast when I went to get breakfast it was only a bottle of water a mini granola bar and a muffing. WHAT HAS THAT CONTINENTAL ??? Total despair, that instead of a hotel was more like a mousetrap. Read less
