The Clarion has 2 beautiful pools in a tropical courtyard. The hotel is in a very convenient location, with supermarkets and tons of restaurants in the immediate area. There is a shuttle service that takes you to and from Busch Gardens, which takes approx 6 minutes. The rooms are ok with comfortable beds and look like they had been renovated...

Since the inception of my on-again/off-again relationship with this "hotel" in June 2016, I have watched the accountability and ethical practices among the management staff go from acceptable to inexcusable, as the accommodations and amenities continued to become more unsanitary and unsafe -despite the great lengths the owners and operations manager have gone to in order to fool patrons and...

This is an older hotel, with rooms updated in all the ways that matter to me- beds and bedding fresh and clean, showers work well. Everything clean. Staff was super-friendly and organized. Altogether a satisfactory choice. We stayed here over the New Year's holiday, a busy time for them, and would be happy to return.

Have stayed at this hotel many time and found the service fair…BUT Jan 2017 woke up to a very COLD shower, if that did not tick me off when we went to the free breakfast a very rude woman was insulting some Mexican people. After listening to this we dump our food in the trash, and left and promised never...

Stayed a couple of nights here over new years eve, based on the price and reviews. The name "Hotel & Conference Center" is a bit deceiving, as it's really just a typical 2-floor motel, but it has decent, clean rooms and the staff were really courteous and attentive. Because there are no interior halls, you do get a fair amount...

We just wanted a clean place to stay and take a hot shower. This hotel failed on both. First room had dirty sheets. We switched rooms. When we got up in the morning, no hot water! Also there are no elevators so you have to carry your luggage up stairs. It's also an outdoor entrance. The pool looks very nice....

I like this place.. good breakfast, good internet. nice bed.. only problem was the pool heater was not in use.. I have stayed here many times, the heated pool is one of the things that brings me back.. If it is not heated next time I go, it will be the last time I go..

I liked this place. We were a group of 8 and booked last minute. We had two rooms, both had decent sized beds and both were very clean. Showers were functional, as far as I know everything worked well. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty basic and lacked vegetarian options.

My teenage daughter and I arrived about 8pm on a Thursday night. When checking in, the front desk clerk recommended we park around back. It was dark. There was a group of teenagers playing loud music in their car at one end of the parking lot and a drunk couple fighting at the other end. I seriously considered taking the...
