"Great Hotel!"
July, 2016
We stayed at the Destin Palms for 5 nights. We'll likely be staying here every time. Short driving distance to Disney, restaurants within walking distance if necessary. Our room was bigger than we thought it'd be, and looked perfect every night when we got back

Tip: Continental breakfast and short driving distance to Disney

"Good for the Price"

The hotel itself needs some updating, particularly the first floor. The staff was very courteous and accommodating, even when we were late to breakfast - which was rather a nice feast considering the price of the hotel.

Tip: The hotel sits back off the road and has a very little round sign which is easy to miss!

"It was okay"
June, 2016
The hotel room was small and they DO NOT SHUTTLE TO DISNEY OR UNIVERSAL. That was a bummer. But the bed was big and comfy but the room was so tiny. It needs to be updated.

"It gets the job done!"
April, 2015
I give the hotel 3 stars. The beds were comfortable and the room was moderately clean. I think the bathroom could have been better cleaned and one of our comforters smelled like body odor. Beds were made and towels were refreshed daily. The breakfast bar was disappointing - mainly frozen waffles and cereal were the options - no fruit or yogurt - I was disappointed in that and had to spend money on breakfasts which I did not budget. Overall it's a good hotel for the money - you get what you pay for.

Hotel manager Melisa is the best, she helps with all your needs during your stay. I rate this Hotel a 4 star instead of a 2 star that is listed, close to Animal Kingdom and the area is not crowded.McDonald is across the Hotel in case u do not want the fee continental breakfast the hotel offers.Walmart is close by about 6 miles and the major eating places.Walgreens is around the corner. Car wash new is next to walmart .Best area to stay and no crowds to fight or traffic.

I decided to stay at this hotel due to the location. I do not like to spend a lot of money on a hotel room I am barely in and this place was really well priced. Upon arriving, I was given my room early. We got to the room (two queen beds), and it was nice. This hotel is great if it is two adults. It was me, my husband and two kids. There was no closet. Even when I went to NY were hotel rooms are small, I had a closet. There was a small armoire. With the luggage in the way, it made us feel crammed (there was no were to store them since there was no closet). The bathroom has a shower instead of a tub. That was a bit of a problem because my little one is terrified of showers. Other than that the place was good. The front desk people are very nice and helpful. My only recommendation I would make to the hotel is they need to extend their breakfast to 10-10:30. I was on vacation so I shouldn't be expected to get breakfast by 9am. The bed and pillows were comfortable. For the price I can say it is well worth the stay.

My husband and I were on a quick weekend getaway to Disney and were looking for a very affordable hotel. This fit the bill because it was advertised as close to Disney and had a free breakfast. We arrived late at night but were quickly greeted by a very friendly worker. Check-in was quick and easy. The hotel is very dated. The rooms do not feel super clean or new. We stayed in a king room and it was by far the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in! I was shocked at how tiny the room was because it didn't show in the pictures I had looked at online. The room had a king bed, a desk, an armoire, and a chair. Our suitcases were practically stacked on top of each other due to lack of room. It was way too crowded with all the bulky furniture in such a small space. Half of the room is taken up by the shower wall protruding into the bedroom space. It allows for a very spacious shower (we agreed that it kind of felt like a space shape in there due to the odd shape of it), but it cuts in to the already limited bedroom space. However, we didn't spend much time in the room, so it was fine. The bed was very comfortable. Bring your own pillow if you can!! Their pillows truly felt like rocks. My only other issue besides the tiny room was the advertised continental breakfast. There were hardly any options. It included frozen pancakes that needed to go in the toaster, bagels with no cream cheese, and two cereal options. No meat or anything really substantial. I was still hungry after eating it. Also, their coffee cups were not much bigger than a bathroom cup that you would use for mouth wash. I had to make 4 trips back to the coffee machine to feel like I had consumed one regular cup. I hope they had just run out of cups that weekend and that those were not the cups they usually use. The "breakfast" was very disappointing. We ended up going to the McDonald's that shares the parking lot for breakfast on our second morning. The dining area for the breakfast is also very small. There were only a few tables and many families that came down a little later had to stand around because the space could not accommodate everyone. The location is about a 15 minute drive to Disney. There is no shuttle. The GPS will take you through a toll on your way back from Disney, so make sure you find the "back road" route or else you will pay a toll every time you head back to the hotel. In the strip on the other side of the road, there is a small pizza place that looks like a hole in the wall. I highly recommend eating there for dinner one night. It was delicious! Their calzone for two was big enough to feed a family. At this hotel, you get what you pay for. For the price, I cannot complain. It was perfect for a quick weekend when we were barely spending any time in the room. My biggest disappointment was the breakfast. Very friendly staff. Overall, not a bad stay if you are just looking for a cheap room.

We stayed at this hotel for 16 days with friends. We arrived quite late from our flight. Checkin was quick & all staff very friendly & helpful, which is what you want after a long days travel. We were given rooms next door to each other on the top floor. Although the rooms are a bit small (not much storage space if you are there for a long stay) they were clean & beds very comfortable. Room service & cleaning were done daily and we were always asked if we needed more towels etc.Breakfast is included in the price & was more than adequate with bagels, waffles, pancakes, toast & cereals. Tea & coffee were available all day in breakfast room. The breakfast room is a bit small and can get crowded depending on what time you went down for breakfast.There was mention from the manager that they may look to make this area bigger which would be great.We did get to use the pool a few times and it was a lovely place to relax. We even had our lunch there one day. There is currently building work taking place on the land next door to the pool ( not related to the hotel) I meant to ask if it was new business etc but forgot. However despite this the pool and area was kept clean. This is an independent hotel, not a big chain which does give it more charm. And whilst some areas could do with being upgraded, they always seem to be working on this. We saw maintenance & decorating being done on a few rooms whilst we were there. All the staff & manager were great & went out of their way to help. In my opinion good customer service is key in running a successful business and they certainly give this. Well done we enjoyed our stay with you.
