    Now called the Clarion Inn

    by

    The now named Clarion Inn is located in a pleasant area of Lake Buena Vista. With a car park on one side, and the Interstate 4 highway on the other side. The hotel consists of 2 blocks of rooms with a central reception area followed by a further 2 blocks of rooms. Each block of rooms are over 5 floors with lifts at both ends and an open stairway around the perimeter of each floor. If you want a quiet room ask for one on the top floor, facing the car park and in 2000 or 4000 blocks because these are further away from the reception and you have less people waking past your door between the interconnecting blocks. The windows are only single glazed and on the I 4 side of the buildings you will hear the constant roar of traffic. Our room had air conditioning and this can also act as a heater if it ever gets cold, TV, a clock radio, coffee maker which can double up as a tea maker, micro wave, fridge and a ice bucket. There is an en-suite but it does not have a sink and you have to use the only sink in the kitchen area. There was one armchair and a chair and desk. There were 2 small comfortable double beds, iron and ironing board, and a room safe. The room was cleaned daily and there was a plentiful supply of towels, flannels, soap, body lotion, hair conditioner and shampoo. The supply of coffee and if you were very lucky tea, sugar and powered milk was minimal. The housekeeping staff could also arrive early and one Sunday at 8.30am, they could arrive late sometimes at 4pm. The room was of a reasonable size, comfortable and clean. The hotel comes with free wi-fi throughout the buildings and I noticed a couple of computer terminals in the reception area. A free breakfast is available in the mornings in the restaurant but consists of a limited variety of cereal, bread which can be toasted if you do not mind the queue, jam, coffee and squash. You can pay extra and upgrade to a full breakfast if you prefer. The restaurant is open in the evenings for dinner. In the reception building there is also a bar which does snacks and a small shop, a small games room and an outlet for theme park tickets. The grounds are well looked after with small lakes and fountains. There are 2 swimming pools available, with sun beds, tables and chairs plus towels are provided. One of the pools has an adjacent area with water features for children. There is plenty of parking space and a small play area for children. There are washing machines, tumble dryers, cold drinks machines and ice dispensers available. There is a manned gate house on the entrance and you can see and hear the security staff patrolling the grounds. There are numerous restaurants and some shops close by that are within easy walking distance. You only get what you pay for and this is a reasonably priced hotel in a nice area and we are already planning our next visit.

    Best Place to Stay by Far

    by

    I got a travel zoo special (rare) for $25 per night. Breakfast was included and so was transportation to Disney. The heated pool was lovely. I asked for a disabled room and my 'suite' and bathroom were very large and new'ish. It is possible to walk to the main road where there is chinese food. mexican, pizza, and ABC liquor store. This was far nicer than the cheapest deal at Disney where for $100 I stayed at the All star movies and the room was small and yucky.
    Avoid the timeshare people nearby the front desk.

Friendly, helpful staff help resolve any issues with the dirty, disgusting rooms

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed there with my fiancee on a 4 day trip to Disney World. We arrived in the hotel lobby, and noticed a sign warning of the bad things to come. There was a sign on the front desk stating that pets were welcomed in the hotel. It had a catchy little poem about how pets tend to be more considerate than their human counterparts. One of the people in line to check in were barefoot, and appeared to had done some traveling sans shoes. The room itself was nasty. There were urine stains on the toilet seat. The linens were covered with hair, and appeared to be several decades old. The last time the carpeting saw any shampoo was from an accidental spill of a guest, mercifully. Otherwise, it was given no love and promptly appeared as so. The staff, however, were very friendly, and quickly canceled our stay for the night, as we made a run for in to another hotel (Fairfield Inn). I was credited my money back without hassle. I would have to say that given the circumstances of that hotel, the staff there can make a case for sainthood. I don't care how much the rooms are, I won't stay there again.

Give this property a break!

I stayed at the Comfort Inn LBV Halloween week 2003. The room rate was low 30's. The location is excellent on a premier Parkway among many well kept more expensive properties. The room was basic with two double beds and was recently refurnished... ie. spreads, drapes, and a nice upholstered easy chair.. though not a recliner. It had a small table, small microwave and a ample sized mini fridge. Room TV was 25 inches with remote, also had a clock radio, desk and chair, small coffee maker with supplies. Vanity had one sink, hairdryer, and electric plugs ( some lower end properties don't). Toilet and bathtub/shower was separated by a door from the sink/vanity area.Floor lamp was behind easy chair with an accessible plug for charging phones or camcorders.
Furniture seemed newer. Dresser was large enough to spread out accessories. Small open clothes rack with storage on top. There was near the door to stack luggage in addition to a folding luggage holder.
Property had Gated security, nice grounds, nice pool, clean smelling reception area with nice bathrooms...... good free breakfast of cold cereal, oatmeal, toast/butter/cream cheese, mini donuts, mini bagels, apple/orange juice. good coffee, large open feeling dining area, free parking, accommodating staff. I spend my extra money on gifts, not Paris Hilton (ha, ha). Seriously, a good stay and would stay again.

Very Dirty

by A TripAdvisor Member

Reasonable price, but once you view the rooms you find out why.
Bathroom was the worst bit, very very damp, no ventilation, mould all over shower curtain and walls as bathroom splash area not tiled. Asked staff three times to change shower curtain, all three times they merely bleached it. The smell hits you as you enter room, very dirty and old fashioned. Electrics hanging off wall behing T.V and the rest of electrical items are from the dark ages. Found food left from previous occupants next to my bed! Restaurant staff very ignorant and quite rude on occasions - avoid the evening buffet at all costs! Bar was very expensive also. Only thing going for this place is it's location and the pool area was ok - although the pool was freezing as they did not use the heating in it even when a request was made by another guest.
Will not be staying at "comfort" inn again.

Close and Clean

by TripAdvisor Member Tolmansweet

Not a showy place as you drive down Palm Parkway but the room was clean and roomy with an inroom safe and the pool was large, warm and clean. The drive to the Magic Kingdom was about 10 minutes. The continental breakfast filled up quickly after 7:30 a.m. but was adequate for coffee, juice and a muffin. The dinner buffet, while not fine dining by any stretch, was tasty and good value if you're travelling with children.

Good Value, Great Location

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed at the Comfort Inn in early Dec. of 2003 and had a very good experience. Rooms were basic and older looking, but clean and in good working order. Housekeeping did a good job. One of the elevators was out of order, but they had it fixed by the next day. The grounds are very well kept, and Lake Buena Vista is an attractive area. It's close to Downtown Disney and there were many dining options a short drive away. Getting to WDW is very convenient as well. We thought the free continental breakfast was good, and they offered a hot buffet for $4.95 (kids free) also. There is security at the entrance that stops cars without a pass, which is a nice feature. Pool was a little chilly in December, but our kids enjoyed the playground. The staff was very pleasant and seemed to try to please. Got a great rate of $29.95 on the hotel's website and thought that was a steal for what you get. Would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed here in October of 2002. We paid about $35.00 a night and found it to be clean and quiet. He had booked a regular room but they gave us the family suite for the same price. It is very close to downtown Disney and there are many resturants within walking distance.
We will stay there again. I told my friend about it and he stayed there in February of 2003 and also liked it a lot.

Pretty good place

by A TripAdvisor Member

Pretty good place. I was afraid of all of the reviews. Good price and no bugs in my room. My kids loved the familiy fun suite. They had a pretty decent hot bar, great kids eat free program, and comfy shuttles.

It was a good deal for the price. At first, we had a stinky room - but we asked for another room and were quickly moved to a better suite. My kids really loved the family fun suite and the mickey mouse waffles - you make them yourself.

Give it a shot if you are trying to have fun and not break the bank!!!!

Comfortable and Clean

by A TripAdvisor Member

I was really nervous because of all the reviews I read. The place was comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast was included. If you'd like a full buffet breakfast in the morning it is $5.95 per person, plus tax and tip. It was excellent. There is a bar on the premises and a snack store on the premises as well. The pool was nice too. The buses run to all Disney parks and include Universal and Sea World as well.
Overall, it was a really pleasant stay.

Clean and safe, but it was just TOO big for me. It has like 650 rooms, and that's just TOO many kids for the swimming pool areas and continental breakfast rooms.
