“Bathroom needs extra attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We recently spent five days at the Ocean Front International Palms Cocoa Beach. Florida. The room consisted of two queen beds, fridge, microwave, hair dryer, iron & board, coffee maker and a dated TV. They had a nice heated pool with complementary towels. The rooms on the beach are newer and have great views of the beach and ocean. The rooms on the ocean side, have an elevator where ours did not. In the older section, close to the pool area. The bathrooms need updating and locks should be replaced. Remember, Spring Breakers arrive in March and April, so if you're into quiet times, don't go then. There was a replica of a "pirates" ship in the kids play area. This 500 room complex used to be a Holiday Inn. There is a Tiki bar, restaurant and one computer available for information. I did ask for directions once and the office person said "use the computer". The beach was just steps away and the majority of the guests were seniors. Restaurants in the area were Florida Seafood, Thai & Japanese Food (located across the street at La Quinta Inn) I ordered some rice with my Sashimi and they charged almost $4.00 for a small bowl, Time Out Bar (located across the street) at La Quinta Inn...$3.00 pitchers during happy hour..amazing price..and Baja Tavern -oysters about $1.00 each. Shopping in the area consisted of Sears, JC Penny, Maceys etc. It also had a large movie theatre. It was located at 777 E Merritt Island, probably a ten minute drive from the hotel. The highlight of the trip was the Cape Canaveral (Kennedy) Space Tour. Plan on spending 5 hours for the tour. It was around $50 to get in and $10 for parking. I was at the Space Center twenty years ago. Back then you got a closer look at the details of the launch sites. Remember the site closes at 5pm, so it's not worth arriving late in the afternoon.

Room Tip: "Rooms on the Ocean Side are worth the extra bucks"

We loved this hotel! Mark at the front desk was amazing. We were nervous about the hotel at first. We figured with the cheap price, it was too good to be true. But it wasn't. Mark went above and beyond from the start to make sure we had the best available room, made sure we had all resort info, and really made us feel welcome and like he was there for our every need. The resort had everything we needed. Anything we called for, the staff took care of it promptly. The rooms were very clean, pool was heated and clean, the restaraunts had great food and were resonably priced. Mambos had the best fish tacos! And our bartender Alley was wonderful. Super friendly and attentive. Our only suggestion would be to have bigger pool towels. They were incredibly small lol. Over all we had a great time and will be back again!

This hotel was in a great location and most aspects were excellent...Tiki Bar, great service, check in fine. Room very clean and serviceable.

Downside, Internet WiFi not great and reception not very supportive and building work going on in the room two rooms away, not great timing.

Stayed at international palms feb 2 and 3. Really nice place right on the beach. Katie at the front desk was so polite and friendly, she even printed out a map for us. Would stay here again for sure.Price for $55.00 per night suited our needs. Momba bar was enjoyable with the steel drums entertainment. Happy hour from 4 to 7. Two pints for $5.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nf or 3rd floor ocean view building.

Stayed here this past Saturday on a weekend trip from Orlando. The resort is fantastic - great food and drink at Mambo's, lots to do for the whole family (multiple pools, games, etc.) Room was very clean and well appointed. Location cannot be beaten, right on the beach and a very short shot to Ron Jon's, the Cocoa Beach Pier, and just minutes from Port Canaveral. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not sure why anyone would give this place a negative review, it's a very nice hotel and a sensational value for the rates they charge.

Room Tip: Check out the lofts, they're huge, have a full kitchen in them, and the rates were more than rea...
