Clarion Suites Maingate
- What's Included
We visited clarion suites for 2 weeks in Feb 2017 as our Base for our Disney holiday. The hotel is ideally located to visit the parks as it's only 15 mins drive from the Disney parks, 25 mins from universal and sea world, and about an hour from busch gardens, this made it very easy to get around.its about 35 mins from the airport to . There are also restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance including a pizza place, tgi Fridays, outback steak house, and an Italian place,as well as a subway . There is also a large super market a few minutes walk away which was very handy.The hotel itself is set in nice grounds, with quite a large pool area, it has a outside eating area to, and a large car park . The hotel has a small cafe onsite which served the complimentary breakfast,this was canteen style with plastic plates and cups . Although the breakfast buffet was basic and quite limited there was still enough to have a decent breakfast which included scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels, 3 types of bread, fresh fruit, choice of 4 cereals, coffee and fruit juice machine, and pancake makers which made Mickey mouse shaped pancakes. Breakfast served between 6.30 and 9.30 am. The room itself was very large with 2 double Queen size beds, a sofa bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, small dining table with 2 chairs and coffee table. There was a large flat screen TV, safe which was free to use, fridge, and microwave in the room to, as well as an iron and ironing board which was very handy. The bathroom was again large and we'll set out with a bath / shower, the coffee machine was also in the bathroom (although you could move this if you wanted) , and there was a hair dryer. There were lots of different size towels to. The room had a really powerful Aircon unit which was great on the hot days, but was quite loud when on full power. There was also free WiFi which had a really strong signal and worked great.The only negative was the sound proofing of the rooms isn't great so you could often hear people in the rooms next door, and the slamming of their apt front doors, as well as the wheeling of suitcases and the cleaners trolley outside, this didn't bother us at all but may be annoying to some people.A few nice extras was that there is a laundrette onsite which was very handy as we did all of our holiday washing before coming home, the machines are the large ones so you could fit loads in. It was $2 for a wash, and the same for a dry. There were also drinks vending machines and ice an machine on each floor, as well as a small gift shop onsite. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely book to stay here again.
Reserved 2 rooms as we brought our grandkids. Add said heated pool and hot tub. Yeah pool was maybe 70 degrees and that is being generous. They do have a hot tub but it was under repair. No water and taped off. Went to the front desk and they were shocked that it was under repair and didn't know anything about it. Didn't offer an apology or anything. Said they would look into it and let us know. Pool side bar is closed. Customer service is not a priority at this hotel. Stay away.
I am a nurse volunteering for the Disney Princess races for 3 days. Since home is an hour drive, decided to find a reasonably priced room for convenience. Pleasantly surprised because this is the "tourist" district. Room was very spacious with 2 queens and a seating area/sofa bed. Also has a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Beds are very comfortable. Large outdoor swimming pool with toddler area. Hot breakfast. These are all nonsmoking rooms but there is a designated smoking area if you need. Close to lots of restaurants, Cracker Barrel you could walk to. Less than 5 minutes to Disney!
We stayed here for 14 days, a family of 4 (kids 13 and 6). The hotel was fine for our needs as we tend to be out a lot of the day. The rooms were clean but showing signs of age.We had the breakfast a couple of times but then chose to eat in the parks, as we didn't particularly enjoy the breakfast.Also as we used the shuttle it meant getting up even earlier for breakfast.The shuttle service was good and always turned up, mostly on time. The issue is with the times, for example the shuttle to universal leaves at 7.05am and didn't return until 8pm which is a long day.There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance of the hotel, and also a supermarket.Overall we enjoyed our time at the clarion suites Maingate and would return.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. My children loved the Waffle maker and the breakfast in general. Lovely pool area. The room smelt like mildew but overall, had a nice stay. I would stay here again
