    Very good 8,0
    Mixed bag but comfortable stay
    Hotel was very clean and inviting. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Two chairs rather than one would have been nice. Bathroom was large but not enough space on sink and no hooks to hang change of clothes or towels. However, exceptionally clean with a relaxing shower. Need a floor mat for shower, slippery to stand on. Used a hand towel instead. LaTabla restaurant was a good venue for dinner. Very pretty atmosphere. Disappointed that the bar at the pool was not opened and the lobby bar did not open until happy hour. All in all, a strong "GOOD" for my stay at Clarion.

    Fair 4,0
    Pillows are in euro sham size. There’s no duvet only a very thing (like a bed sheet) blanket. Half of the light bulbs in the room were not working. Our room faces the high-way so it’s quite noisy. I was waken up by sudden car noises many times during the night. Staff is nice. The restaurant is delicious. Bit overall it’s not a very comfy hotel. Even though the price is nice, I won’t stay there again. I felt very sleepy during the day at the theme parks because I couldn’t sleep well.

    Worst hotel and worst manager ever! I exactly told their housekeeper I didn’t need the cleaning service on that day. She’s notified and left my room. But she went into the room when I wasn’t there later and trashed my stuff. I’ve never got a chance speak with her because the hotel said she was not working there anymore and didn’t trash anything. The manager never answered the phone call. He only answered twice and in both conversations yelled and made no sense. He even refused to issue a refund because they needed to pay their electricity bills? How’s related to the case? And he kept saying I should tell the front desk I didn’t need the cleaning service rather than the housekeeper. However, no one from the front desk told me that when I checked in, and the housekeeper didn’t say anything either others than leaving when I told her. The manager said she didn’t trash anything on the desk but the hotel also has a policy that housekeepers are supposed to replace things on the desk if they see things are used. So rude and unprofessional!

    The front lobby was nice, the room was very dark you couldn’t see very well, they only had 2 lights in the room, one when u came in, and only one on the night stand. No microwave and the no hot water in the shower end it just happened to be 45° in Florida the two days we were there. No complimentary coffee in the lobby, Even the cheapest hotels have that, I feel for the price that I paid it should’ve been a little better, I will never book at the Clarion again or even refer a friend
