“One night only”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

My husband were looking for a place to stay for one night prior to going on a cruise out of Port Canaveral. We found the Clarion by chance and got a nice deal. The staff was extremely accomodating! We had a one night stay with a transfer to and from our ship included. We were able to park our car at the hotel rather than have to drive it to the Port and pay by the day. They also served us a complimentary hot breakfast. It's not the Ritz but it was a decent room for one night.

When I stayed recently at this hotel, the staff was so nice to our party when we stayed in this hotel in mid-March. We were treated so good by the staff and we were able to leave our car at the hotel while we were on our cruise and the staff had lined up a shuttle to take us to the ship. I think this is the best we have been treated at any hotel that we have ever stayed in. The man who registered us in was very nice and should be recognized for his hospitality. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to the area. Unfortunately, this website doesn't do any justice to the hotel and its staff. Again, we would recommend this hotel to anyone going there.

Room Tip: Room on courtyard has an excellent view of the tropical setting and pool area.

Upon arrival it didn't look so bad. The lobby was nice and clean and looked decent. Once we got into our room...things changed. The rooms are very small and packed full with stuff that really just doesn't fit in the room comfortably. The beds are extremely hard, there was hardly any walking space in the room. And it gets worse (i know right?) The bathrooms....oh how i loath these bathrooms. There is not a sink in the actual bathroom. At the back of the room there is a long counter, with your sink and all of the towels and what not items that CHOICE makes them put out. And then the actual bathroom with the shower and the toilet....looks like a forgotten closet. I had to literally push the door past the toilet just to get in. Mold on the ceilings, tubs are dirty and stained. The decor is from the the 80's at least. Blue tile squares....with lots of grout in between. And to make matters worse my 6 and 7 year old daughters found a pair of thongs in-between the bed and the wall. That was fun explaining why underwear looked like butt floss. carpet was nasty dirty.
With all this being said...the witch who checked us in was just that...a witch. But the young man who checked us out was very nice.

Overall...i wouldn't stay here again if it were free. This hotel makes choice hotels look very bad, this should be a crack hotel and then it would get 5 stars.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

We were just there a few nights ago. We booked for one night before leaving for our Cruise the next morning. The beds were horrible, hard, felt like a board over a box spring. The walls had rust stains from apparent previous flooding. The carpet was so filthy that my 1 yr. Old son's feet were black when I wiped them off with a baby wipe. This hotel doesn't look as though any renovations have been made in the past 20 plus years. I could go on, but I will just leave it that I definitely do not recommend this place!

Room Tip: Look elsewhere

Outdoor corridors, musty smelling rooms, firm beds, shoddy service. The only good thing is cocoa beach is just a few miles away.

This Clarion is located maybe 8 miles from Cocoa Beach and the Cruise terminals.
We had our rooms in seconds after checking in with the front desk. The outside appearance could be refreshed but the rooms were updated the furniture clean and comfortable. Older tiles in the bathroom but nothing wrong with it. Our stay included breakfast at the attached restaurant which was very good. The are pool tables, video games a bar lounge also.
The people working had a cheery disposition and made you feel very welcome. The pool area was very large with picnic and bbq area I think. The tiki hut was not open at the time.
We went down the street a ways to go to dinner at Longhorn steakhouse which was wonderful.

Room Tip: I would choose a courtyard room, we were on second floor at the corner next to the laundry and vendi...

Hotel was old but was ok. The surrounding neighborhood was not that great and we were concerned about our vehicle. The room was average size and ok. The bedding was comfortable. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was very good.
