    Me and my fiancée absolutely loved it at this hotel. It was so clean and the room was pretty standard like most others in Florida, 2 double beds, a flat screen, a sink area, wardrobes and a bathroom. We had bed and breakfast, the breakfast is really nice! Perfect if you’ve got a long day at Disney ahead to load up on. This hotel is just a 5 minute walk from a retail park with a whole host of restaurants and bars and stuff and then another couple of minutes to the main road which again has more of the same. It’s also only 5-10 minutes in a taxi to Disney Springs, which as I’m sure you know from there you can use the free transport at your leisure to get around Walt Disney world resort. The only negative about this hotel for me, if you are staying here to go to Disney, the transport provided by the hotel to Disney world isn’t great and is very restrictive. We didn’t actually use it that much after the first couple of days an just started getting taxis to and from Disney springs. Which lead us the next time to spend the extra money on staying in a Disney hotel. HOWEVER, I absolutely love this hotel and would definitely stay here again, hoping for an improvement in the transport situation :) much, much cheaper than a Disney hotel too, you can stay here for 2 weeks bed and breakfast for less than £2000 for 2 people, whereas in a Disney hotel you’re looking at double that with no breakfast! The hotel bar is great here too and offers lovely food! PiZzas, loaded fries etc. If you’re looking for somewhere close to Disney that isn’t actually in the resort it’s definitely worth a try, or if you’re not going to Disney and you just want a nice hotel with plenty to do around it, this is the one for you!

    This was our third time staying here at the clarion, we asked for 2rooms building 3 on i4 side low down this was met Hotel still very clean with friendly staff, room cleaned every day This hotel is great value for money Resturant. Always seemed busy, but we preferred other resturants Rooms are typical florida style Witnessed 2 weddings here at hotel Pool always has plenty sunbeds and pool towels Busses to parks on time and some were busy, remember no booking of buses first come first to get on so be in que early. Many places to eat that you can walk to Turkey lake rd to universal is a breeze rather than i4to Plenty parking but note if you stay on the car park side many cars come and go and this is where buses may sit and wait for brazil tour parties. No biggy but worth noting Looking forward to returning to clarion lake bv

    We wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Great hotel, rooms are clean and comfy, staff always friendly, love the Lite Bites - it’s so handy! Location is great too right near Disney and loads of restaurants. Plenty of free parking and plenty of sun beds at the pool. Thank you for a great stay!

    Rosen hotels are rated highly on a pretty consistent basis, and judging from my stay here, it's easy to see why. The place is immaculate, and it really does have a "resort" feel even though you're staying off Disney property. Even though it has that feel, there are no resort fees which is highly uncommon. It's also located in a quiet area with a number of other hotels, so that helps with the experience, because you're not in the middle of I-Drive or Hwy 192. It's a very quiet location. The hotel also makes effective use of colorful lighting both projected on and around the property at night. The room was very clean and up to date, with a large bathroom area and mirrors. If you've stayed at one of the Value resorts on property at Disney, you won't be disappointed with your stay here. It's just a few minutes ride to Disney property using the provided shuttles, which were always on time. The staff at the hotel were just wonderful. Everyone was pleasant and ready to help. The breakfast buffet has a lot of choices and is worth adding to your package stay. I didn't use the pool at all, but the families who were seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely. Bottom line, if you are looking for a Good Neighbor hotel to stay at to save some money on your next trip to Walt Disney World, this is an excellent choice. I really can't say enough about the staff and my stay. No issues whatsoever.

    Stayed in September of 2019. The room was perfect for what we needed - a simple place to chill out, grab a shower and finally a good sleep during extremely long days walking around the Theme Parks. The breakfast was OK - minimal for the continental option and not worth the upgrade to the full breakfast. Overall we had a good stay with no issues. We had booked to return this year (2020) but due to Covid-19 decided to put it off until 2021. See you next year!
