    Very Good 8.0 From 988 reviews

    Good 6.0
    The location is very good for people who go to universal Orlando and premium outlet, super close, just a walking distance. It has a swimming pool and hot spa. The hotel is truly a 2 start hotel, google search shows it is 2 start, accurate. shows “3 star”. It is definitely not a 3 star. The room is very tiny, the air conditioning is noisy. The shower and faucet need to be upgraded.

    There was an unpleasant smell of Fabreze in the room. Beds were really comfy.

    First New Orleans visit
    The hotel is a bit old but otherwise great. Room was very clean and staff very friendly. Location is fantastic! We could easiliy walk to the French Quarter and the WWII museum and even walked to Mardi Gras World but took the free shuttle back. The only surprise we had that there is no parking right at the hotel and it was a shock at first to be charged $40/day for valet parking. However, the parking garage they use is only 3 blocks away and after we were explained how to find it, we parked the car by ourselves and paid “only” $20/day.

    The pull out sofa was horrible and very uncomfortable. It needs updates but it did suite our adult family for one night. The road traffic noise was loud too. I would not stay again due to the uncomfortable beds and sofas

    Good Location
    The Clarion is in a great location. We were able to walk to several restaurants and Orlando International Outlet Mall. If you're ambitious Universal is a 20 minute walk, if not, the shuttle leaves at scheduled times.

    Average hotel
    It was hard to locate the hotel since incorrect address was given through the website. We only stayed for 1 night therefore we could not give much feedback. Hotel does not have elevator so if you have heavy luggage, it will be hassle. In general, it’s a moderate hotel, do not expect a lot.

    Great stay! Family of 6 two rooms. Only complaint is water pressure could be better in the shower.

    Fantastic 5-night stay
    This hotel ticked all boxes for our trips to Universal Studios and Seaworld. The shuttle was smack on time with great and informative drivers (though the hotel was close enough to Universal where I figure it would be about a 15-20 min walk). The room was cleaned daily with ample towels and complimentary toiletries and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable (rarely we have found such comfortable beds and pillows at previous hotels). The hotel was quiet and peaceful with a lovely hot tub (the temp was a bit too chilly on most days to jump into the pool however). We got a 15% discount to the Tabla restaurant that had a delicious Hakka Noodles which we got to take out. The reception desk was friendly and always willing to help. The only thing is that the WiFi was a bit spotty sometimes and you had to sign back in upon returning to the room. But overall a superb stay at Clarion!

    Affordable low end lodging
    An older hotel which has been renovated a few times. Paint seems recent enough, so it looks okay, but the room size, scent, TV, and furniture reminds you that nothing is new and fresh. Very close to the Highway. So a tad noisy too. -- I Would recommend only if you want low-end affordable lodging, where you'll spend very little time in the room, and most of your time shopping or at Universal which both are at walking distance!

    Mixed bag but comfortable stay
    Hotel was very clean and inviting. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Two chairs rather than one would have been nice. Bathroom was large but not enough space on sink and no hooks to hang change of clothes or towels. However, exceptionally clean with a relaxing shower. Need a floor mat for shower, slippery to stand on. Used a hand towel instead. LaTabla restaurant was a good venue for dinner. Very pretty atmosphere. Disappointed that the bar at the pool was not opened and the lobby bar did not open until happy hour. All in all, a strong "GOOD" for my stay at Clarion.
