One of the few hotels that are exactly as advertised. Very clean room, good amenities, and friendly staff. My family went on a holiday weekend, so the rate was a bit high, but worth the money ( a few other hotels where I’ve stayed before were more expensive, not as clean or nice and not worth the rate they were charging). Would definitely recommend.

Proximity to Universal was great, but the "Free Shuttle" service was not as I hoped. There was only 3 times available from transportation to the parks that you needed to sign up for. Not very convenient. Also, the last return shuttle was at 7:30pm and the park was open until 9pm. Again, not convenient.

We booked a last minute room for a trip to Islands of Adventure. After transportation delays, we arrived very late, but had no issues getting checked in. Rooms and facilities were very clean. You really can't beat the location if you're spending time at Universal and aren't able to stay on the resort property.

Clarion advertises that it's a 5-minute walk to Universal parks; it's 1.1 miles. We took the free shuttle the first day; 40 minutes late (1040am), had six stops instead of three and we didn't get into the park until after noon. The hotel was great. Roast Cafe was horribly expensive! Staff that I interacted with were polite, smiling and friendly. Would definitely stay again.
