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 in September of 2019. The room was perfect for what we needed - a simple place to chill out, grab a shower and finally a good sleep during extremely long days walking around the Theme Parks. The breakfast was OK - minimal for the continental option and not worth the upgrade to the full breakfast. Overall we had a good stay with no issues.… Read more

The breakfast was OK - minimal for the continental option and not worth the upgrade to the full breakfast. Overall we had a good stay with no issues. We had booked to return this year (2020) but due to Covid-19 decided to put it off until 2021. See you next year! Read less

I stayed here for 2 weeks in October. The location was perfect, close to so many restaurants. Having a 5 minute walk to ihop, Denny’s and Olive Garden was a dream. The staff were always very friendly and welcoming, and our room was very nice. Free transportation to Universal and Disney was an added bonus. I’ll be coming back here for my next… Read more

Update: Housekeeping knocked on my door before 9am, I called the front desk, they apologized. Then hskp knocked again! Sigh. Whatever.

Update: Housekeeping knocked on my door before 9am, I called the front desk, they apologized. Then hskp knocked again! Sigh. Whatever. I go to take a shower and, DURING A PANDEMIC, THE PREVIOUS GUEST'S WASHCLOTH WAS LEFT ON TOP OF THE SHOWER BAR!! I let everything else slide, but at this point, 30 minutes before I was supposed to check out, I was beyond disgusted. Spoke to GM about a refund and was told "I'll give you $20, that's it, and your complaint stops here." YOU CHOSE TO TELL ME WHERE MY COMPLAINT "STOPS" AFTER I POINT OUT YOUR AND YOUR STAFF'S CLEAR NEGLIGENCE?! BBB and Rosen Hotels have been notified. I hope the money was worth it to Mr. Coletti. Gets a star for price. Lost my reservation, indifferent front desk service, ONLY ACCEPTED CASH DURING PANDEMIC (????), no hand sanitizer, property is dated and dirty, room stinks of mold, SPIDER/DIRT IN BED (my pictures are blocked, some how), DUSTY ROOM, people literally hanging out in parking lot at 3/4am which pairs just nicely with a broken-in door bolt (again, blocked from adding pics)... Just make the drive and stay at Rosen Shingle Creek or pay the extra $20 and stay at the nearby properties. This one?! Don't do it. Read less

We had to cut our stay short with the coronavirus outbreak. The first night was so loud sleeping in a room opposite the highway we then got up the next morning to switch rooms. We then got a room facing the car park which was much quieter. Had one day by the pool which was lovely. Pool was a lovely temperature. We paid for breakfast a few times… Read more
We had to cut our stay short with the coronavirus outbreak. The first night was so loud sleeping in a room opposite the highway we then got up the next morning to switch rooms. We then got a room facing the car park which was much quieter. Had one day by the pool which was lovely. Pool was a lovely temperature. We paid for breakfast a few times it was very repetitive. However no beans. Staff were lovely and friendly in the restaurant. Reception staff was also very helpful when we had problems through the crisis. Would I return? Yes if they got rid of the mouldy smell. I did spray a few times but didnt seem to get rid of it. Read less
