Looking at staying here next september, any one used the shuttles to the parks? dont drive so this would be our main transport - may get taxis back to the hotel if the bus times arent to good.

Also how much is breakfast at the hotel?

To go in sept with 3 grandchildren,daughter,and son in law.we will not have a car so will want to use shuttles. Can anyone tell me if they have one going early mornings please,and do they pick up at lots of other hotels? Also love Golden Corral,is it far away?

We never usd the shuttles so i cant really comment on thse. But we have seen them there early. There r so many restaurants around ths hotel. We walk to cicis which is a pizza buffet n so awesome. I remember seeing signs for a golden corral nearby. I m pretty sure its around 2miles away or so? Def google it... i would imagine theres a list of restaurants right off the exit.
Its a really nice hotel n we will b returnin again nxt mnth

Thanks for your help. Booking 2 day for clarion .decided to go for 3 weeks!always said would love to have longer .was almost as cheap as 2 weeks.Hubby retired this year and feel if we don't go now maybe never will! Can you remember cost of your pizza place? Trying to get some idea of spending money needed.its a few years since we last went so I expect many things have changed.which rooms would you say we should request ?grateful for any suggestions about anything

As you go down palm parkway there is a little shopping center on the right, right before the hotel. There is a Hooters in there, a chinese place, outlet store, and Cicis pizza. OMG do we love Cicis. And like I said, we walk to it from the hotel. Like 2mins. I think the promotion Cicis has is a $5 buffet. Then they charge you for a drink. Silly lol. But it averages about $6-7 for all you can eat pasta, soup, salad, pizza dessert buffet. And the pizza are outragous!! I love the taco pizza
We have stayed in two locations here. Once on the I4 side and once on the parking lot side. The parking lot side is quieter and so much easier to get to your car. The pools are decent and they provide towels.
the only thing I didnt like was that there is no continental breakfast. But with the microwave and fridge in the room we just buy some bfast junk. We normally dont eat til lunch anyways. There are a bunch of restaurants surrouning this place.
3 weeks... sounds so great! I hope you have a wonderful time
Depending on when you are going, keep checking their website for discounts. I dont think they have rolled any out for 2013 yet...but its gotta be coming. there always seems to be some promotion for this place. I managed to get a deal back in August for $49/night. How can you beat that??

thankyou so much for the info.were all getting excited now its booked.27 th August -17 th sept! it's too early to tell the grandchildren,we won't get a minutes peace! The only thing I remember from when we stayed there years ago was the pool was warm.the lady who was on customer services arranged for hubby to go with her friend to watch a shuttle take off,and didn't charge anything! obviously we insisted the man took a little.after that we corresponded with her for several years.her name was Betty.I. Expect there are many changes since our last visit.we stayed at Econolodge international drive as they had all free transfers but that is being refurbished by another company .Think it will be much closer at Clarion.Hope you have good time next month. -my family can't believe I'm messaging on I pad as I'd never used computer and they bought this pad a year ago for Xmas for me. I told hubby I'd never use it,but its now a permanent attachment! Discovered this site and its first time I've ever left message.they are all so impressed! Saved so much money on holiday using this! Maybe you'll let us know how your holiday went

Never too early to start planning
Definetly check their website as you get closer as to their discounts. You can probably save some money there. And dont forget there are a bunch of pamphlets in the lobby of the hotel that are full of coupons. There is always a cicis and golden corral coupon in there. Last time we were there we got a buy one get one cicis coupon. The clarion is definetly alot closer than Idrive. Its just a hop skip and a jump to disney. They told us that if you go up to the top floor you can see some of Illuminations at night. We never tried cause we werent in the room at 9pm. But Epcot is right there so I am sure you can. We have stayed there in 2007 and this past year. They did a bunch of improvements since our last stay. I like the rooms.
I found this site a couple years ago. Definetly informative and has helped plan a vacation or two.
I just got a smartphone. I swore up and down that I would never get one. That is was waste of money. The cell company gave me a trial period and I havent put this thing down. It is in fact attached to me and I cant imagine life without it lol. My family thinks I am nutty lol.
We are at a 40day countdown here LOL!! It snowed like crazy yesterday and the temps are heading into the single digits. Ready to see the sun again and shed some layers of clothes lol. Will definetly share our trip.
Happy planning!! Remember..its never to early to start planning

Just booked it for one night as we are driving in the day before and don't want to waste the $$$$ on a room at WDW when we will be exhausted. We will check out the next day and move to CSR. Looking forward to checking it out as it gets good reviews and was only $49 a night! Hope there aren't any critters (namely bed bugs) I did see some reports on the Bed Bug registry so I am a little nervous.... eeek!

We stayed here this past April for 2 weeks and had really no complaints as with our other stays in previous years.Now this time we slept in another building then in previous years and it was a little bit noisier than we liked from the I-4 and being on the top floor facing the pool.Our breakfast was from their buffet and it was good as always for us. We found coupons for BOGO breakfast buffet which helped out a lot with our budget. Weather was AWESOME/PERFECT! Price was right as well, just under $60/night including taxes. We plan on going back in 2015 and we will stay at the Clarion once again!!

Would like to know the bakery, please.
