Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista is GREAT! 2 Pools, updated rooms, pillow-topped mattresses, micro, Frig, restaurant, deli, convenience store, bar/grille, game room. We stayed there our last trip and are planning to stay at the sister property on I drive=8 nights for $675 WITH Breakfast Buffet each morning! I used undercovertourist.com for the price as well as park tickets and rental car!
I agree. This is absolutely my cheap/non-Disney go to for hotels. I don't even look anywhere else anymore. I've gotten rooms as cheap as $75 but usually around $100. Still a great value.

So, I am seriously considering an off site property, something comparable to POP Century. We are looking at a trip Jan 21-29, 2019. POP nightly rates for two QUEEN beds and free parking at the parks (or bus transportation) are 116/126/153 (M-W/Th,Su/F-Sa), an average of 127.75. Taxes and resort parking not included. The Clarion rate for two DOUBLE beds is 130, plus taxes. Resort parking and breakfast are included, but I would have to pay for parking at the parks. I'm not seeing enough (any?) savings to staying off site...

You did not figure in the $13.00+ per night parking fee for resort parking!

I second the Buena Vista Suites as our off-site favorite, had the double queen suite. Last stayed there in November 2017, 2 other times previously. The suite is a separate bedroom (2 queens) and a living room (with a sleeper); there is a door between so extra early risers can dress, etc., without disturbing the late-risers. For 2 adults and 2 teens this was plenty of room. Quick drive in to WDW. They have a shuttle but we rented a car so didn't use it, so I can't speak to the efficiency of the shuttle. The free breakfast was acceptable, however extremely crowded so get up early. We got a very nice rate using MouseSavers and they waived parking fee and resort fee (which I think totaled 15/nt). Our last stay at a WDW resort was Caribbean and the room was so much smaller. But, if I could get the same rate for Boardwalk, I'd go back there in a heartbeat. :)
