Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista, Orlando

The hotel

We think the Clarion Inn offers excellent value as well as being so close to Disney. In the 23 acres of landscaped grounds is a lake which is home to a variety of Floridian bird life. You will find all the great family amenities in your room, just beware you may just get too comfortable! There are some great deals in the family restaurant here, and a free shuttle bus will take you to the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Disney springs is very close too — with a fantastic array of restaurants, bars and shops there.

Stayed for six nights while visiting our daughter who is working at Disney world. Great value and nice amenities. We did not use the free shuttles for the parks as my daughter has her car. We arrived early and the staff tried their best to get us checked in and into our room well before check in of 4 p.m. we were in our room by 1 I'd say. Close to… Read more
Stayed for six nights while visiting our daughter who is working at Disney world. Great value and nice amenities. We did not use the free shuttles for the parks as my daughter has her car. We arrived early and the staff tried their best to get us checked in and into our room well before check in of 4 p.m. we were in our room by 1 I'd say. Close to many restaurants and stores. My husband and I walked to Disney springs and back. Was a nice walk. The hotel has 2 nice pools and they never felt crowded. The hotel offers a buffet for breakfast and dinner daily at a cost and we ate at both. Food was good. Service great. I'd stay here again as the rates are that good! I wish they had queen size beds though. Need to upgrade their beds to queen size!! Way too small for two people. Beds were comfortable though and pillows too. We were on the third floor and our room was satisfactory. Read less

Everything went well except that we found ants or mites in our room! We were on the ground floor and it was noisy every so often. My recommendation if you're going to book this hotel: stay above ground and check for critters.

This hotel is just a 15 minute drive from the Magic Kingdom. We stayed here just for one night after we had been at the park all day. We arrived at 9 am and just missed the shuttle to the Magic Kingdom. The shuttle only goes to MK once in the morning and picks up late at night, you'll have to get on at Epcot for more convenient times throughout the day. We ended up just taking uber to the park. The hotel provides a parking pass for your car, so if parking there before checking in be sure to ask for that. We checked in after we were done at the park around 9:30 PM and it was a very smooth process. The room was clean, the furniture was a bit worn down and the shower had an odd smell, but otherwise it was a very decent stay for the price to be close to Disney. They also have a nice pool.

This hotel is ideally placed for Disney, in fact we walked there to look around Disney Springs for the day. The rooms are a little tired, but very big and with comfortable beds. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and had good facilities - hairdryer, coffee / tea machine, microwave and full size fridge. There was an issue with our bathwater not draining away efficiently, but someone was sent to sort it within half an hour and all was well. There is a restaurant, of sorts, although it is more like a canteen, where you can get breakfast and dinner, but just down the road (left out of the hotel premises) there is a complex with lots of choice for restaurants, many of which are open at lunch time too. The hotel also sells Disney tickets and a free bus comes several times a day for guests wishing to go to the local shopping outlets. There is a pool with sunloungers, should the weather be suitable and free wifi in all rooms. Read less

We checked in and quickly found out we were in a part of the hotel that was under construction. We could hear the drilling in our room and it sounded like they were drilling through our ceiling it was so loud.

We checked in and quickly found out we were in a part of the hotel that was under construction. We could hear the drilling in our room and it sounded like they were drilling through our ceiling it was so loud. We complained and were moved to a new room on a different side of the hotel “away from the construction” but sure enough they were doing construction on the room right above us, not as noisy as the last one but still annoying and it woke us up from our naps with their hammering. Then the smoke detector in the room started chirping bc the battery was bad, they came to replace the battery and put it in wrong so it continued to chirp. Then the next day there was more construction above us and the lock to our door stopped working. We had to check out early and request a refund for the last day. The only good thing I can say about the hotel was Jessica and the other lady at the front desk, they were very accommodating and apologetic. I’ve never felt the need to give feedback or review a hotel in the past but this experience was terrible. Read less
