It was a reasonably priced motel. The room was clean and quiet, if a bit dated. I was attending the AIMexpo with the exhibit hall in the West concourse and the outdoor events behind the Hilton. Which puts the Clarion in between within easy walking distance of both. The Clarion provides a full breakfast buffet and is adequate if your standards are low. It's edible, but not very savory. The breakfast buffet becomes the bar at night, 6 nights a week (closed Sundays). The drinks are cheap but there are no food options during bar hours that I saw.
The halls had a slight smell, but it did not continue in the room. Within walking distance of the motel, there are few options for meals, including Denny's, Red Lobster, IHOP and higher end restaurants at the Rosen Centre hotel. Jump on the I-ride trolley ($2 each way) oxr about a 15 minute walk for a plethora of dining choices North of the covention center complex.
It was convenient to Seaworld and a great value for money paid to stay.
The front desk staff was less than helpful upon arrival and trying to check...I almost had to do his job for him.
Needs a makeover/face lift
It needs to be modernized within hallways and foyer
Bed Was Comfy Great Location I Would Stay Again!
I Didn't Like That There Was A Greasy Head Stain On The Headboard Which Shows It Wasn't Clean But That's About It.
Breakfast / Breakfast service
Location to conventional center
Good location to convention center and to I-drive. Breakfast offered. Front desk specialist, Pravin, worked with us to get receipts and he was really nice.
The staff was not polite. Eric failed to acknowledge us when we stood in line and instead offered pizza to his maintenance guy. He also hounded us with questions about how many people were in the room repeatedly and when I asked for an extra pillow. I have stayed at this hotel before and he was rude the last time as well. The hotel was also lacking ventilation and there was a musty smell all the time everywhere.
We picked the Clarion since it was very close to the Orange County Convention Center, where we were attending an event. It was about a 5 minute walk to the North/South building of the OCCC, which was very convenient. The price was right too. Free WiFi, free breakfast (albeit mediocre), and free parking sealed the deal. The room was clean and comfortable, but could use more storage (no closet).
There were no elevators to the second floor where we stayed - making hauling luggage up and down stairs a little frustrating. The walls were paper thin - you could hear everything in the adjacent rooms and hallway. The shower head in the bathroom is pretty much at eye level, and I'm only 5'4". The free breakfast was pretty sad, but it did the job. $4/day "resort fee" :(
Great staff worked with us cause this site never sent the email to the hotel so tracked it down 3hrs. Later
Everything! And the people can't even count AMERICAN money!!!
Big bed, front desk staff was friendly
Bathroom was moldy, card to enter room never worked, room wasn't clean, hallways were dingy
