If this hotel's staff and amenities were placed in a modern, renovated facility I would give it more stars - the staff here is STELLAR! Professional, kind, accommodating, and good at their jobs. The two pool areas - a huge, beautiful main pool and a big kids' splash playground area - are beautiful and secluded within the facility in a...

This hotel is average. Rooms were outdated. Steps to get to second floor were rusted thru. Breakfast is included but they do not mention that it only includes 2 of the guest. What is the point of asking me how many in my room and the ages if you don't mention at check in they can't have breakfast? We took...

The only reason I chose this hotel was the pool. As I have a 3 year old and 15 month old twins I liked the fact that they have heated pool and a big kiddy pool. But that was all. I asked for 2 cribs and when I checked in the lady told me to check in the room first...

Jenae S I'm very sorry to hear about your experience here. It is a horrible inconvenience when bed bugs are brought in from other facilities however we have purchased a brand new top of the line Bug killer that is guaranteed to eliminate the problem once it has been brought to our attention.

Rooms were a bit small, but the courtyard is wonderful! Breakfast is a real plus. The mall across the street allows for variety as well. A bit slow on the shuttles. Easy trip to Busch Gardens. I would not walk to the neighborhood to the south . There is some renovation still happening, but plenty of parking.

Every time we have stayed at the Clarion it has been a good experience. Clean rooms, friendly staff. My Granddaughter loves the pools. We usually go to Bush Gardens, and it is a very short drive to it. Property is older, but WELL kept. They have always met all my needs during our stay. What more can you ask for.

Stayed there to avoid driving back to fort Lauderdale after my family and I went to Busch gardens. Great place good price. Awesome kidie pool area with a water slide if you have kids under 10. Keeps the kids out of the other pool if your an adult. Free breakfast.
