"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"
June, 2016
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.
Tip: No free shuttles to Disney or Universal and small room that 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.
Tip: Comfortable beds, sad continental breakfast, moderately clean

Let me start off by saying this, apparently, the owner has just acquired this property, and is in the process of fixing it up. So I had booked a vacation with reserve direct and this was the hotel that wasn't gonna add any more money to my package... Please keep in mind I am driving with my mother in law and 2 sons,10 and 8... Oh and meeting my mother there, yeah.... on a tight budget. So yeah we stayed here. Customer service was wonderful I had called the night before to check the reservations everything was all good I requested extra coffee to be waiting in the room, I was gonna need it to survive, along with creamers and sure enough they were there. My mother requested a room close to ours and she was 3 doors down. The rooms are very quaint but in talking to the owner I think he has some great plans for that place. I am excited to go back and see what he dose! beware not a lot of storage space as of June 2017.

I stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised. Me and my family stayed here from 6/15-6/18 and had a great experience the people at the front desk catered to every need and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. We will be returning here to stay again.

I recently stayed at this hotel for 8 days while on vacation. It was welcoming and the room was clean. The staff is very nice and accommodating and they tried to help us as much as they could. The free breakfast is a really nice bonus. Nearby there is a Mc Donalds, 7 Eleven, Pizza hut and even a Pharmacy, among other things. It's located 15-20 minutes from the Disney parks which is great. Will be going back to this hotel next time I'm in Florida. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

I chose this hotel based on the strength of it's reviews and location. Despite claiming to be a "resort", it is a rather old hotel with a pool, there are absolutely no grounds whatsoever, the resort fee is superfluous. The rooms are old and well used, with extensive signs of wear on the walls, floor, and furniture, About half of the lights in my room did not work, either because the actual switches were physically damaged, or the bulbs were burnt out. The shower was particularly uninviting,on top of being worn and very cramped, the head was positioned about 5 feet off the ground, lower than you'd experience on a cruise ship/boat, and it leaked very loud, precipitous, echoing drops that could not be muted by closing the bathroom door, The room is well furnished, there is a solid night stand and two tables in addition to a bureau for clothes and a second to house the fridge and microwave. The space for clothes is limited and there is no proper closet. My second night here was marked by the intake of a large group of people with many children. The children (while extremely cute) were left unsupervised in the halls for a good 6 hours. They ( I counted nine when I passed them) sat in a large group at the top of the one staircase, and would periodically run down the halls screaming their heads off and clapping. This continued well past 2 AM until one of the parents returned to the hotel from what appeared to be dinner and rounded some of them up. The continental breakfast are frozen pancakes, frozen waffles, and bagels. There are jams and butter for condiments. There is also cold cereal and I believe juice and coffee. This hotel, and its sister, have unusually high ratings for the price range/class on several travel sites that I have seen, despite the hotel being unremarkable in terms of service or quality. It is not uncommon to see the reviewers only having reviewed those two hotels, and the property being described as a "new hotel", when it is clearly quite old and somewhat run down. It's not that being older is necessarily bad, its just not a mistake anyone would ever make with this place. Normally I put a good deal of faith in reviews, particularly off trip advisor, but in this case something just doesn't add up.
