We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. We stayed there for 2 nights while going to Epcot. The hotel lobby was very nice. It felt like we were walking into a fancy posh hotel. The rooms were very nice as well. They were very clean and modernly decorated. The bed was comfortable. Our mini fridge didn't work but...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 February 2017

I've stayed at this property more than once due to its proximity to Universal and the outlet mall. It's a good choice for a local who plans to have a night out in the area. The rooms are still in like-new condition. I've noticed a few reviews from other guests where they're fussing over on one thing or another. I've...

This hotel was recently updated with very cool looking and modern decor. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The pool area was nice with a zero entry pool and the hot tub was hot and well maintained. We stayed in two different rooms. We switched because one of the adjoining rooms had a toddler that screamed almost...

Looks like an update was done, everything in the lobby and rooms looked very new. Beds were comfy and a late arrival was no issue when there's a TGI Fridays within walking distance of the hotel. **There is construction next to the hotel, looks like a road going thru, so there was noise early am. Not the hotels fault, but...

Staying in room 3101 for 2 nights, there is construction all around - the room faces the highway so you hear every semi-truck, siren, honk and CONSTANT traffic noise; not to mention it looks like you are parking in a scene out of a cheap horror movie. The main door was not sealed - you can literally see outside from...

This was a nice place to stay. The room decor was elegant. You can tell they put a lot of thought into the look of the rooms. The bathrooms were kinda small and the water pressure was low.

As choice privilege members we try to stay with choice hotels. This Clarion located off Kirkman drive across street from Universal has undergone a recent update with new furniture and granite counter tops. Nice and clean. You pay for food as they do not have breakfast buffet like many/most choice hotels but restaurant prices weren't ridiculous. This is not a...
