“Fab Hotel and Fab Staff!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We have just come back from Florida, stopping at this hotel. It's nice and easy to find, right behind McDonalds on 192. The staff are absolutely brilliant...We had a couple of issues with the rooms but they were resolved immediately. Alan, the Manager provided loads of useful tips on where to go and the quickest and easiest way to get there. You must go and see Celebration whilst you are here, it's like going to the town where Stepford Wives was filmed...it actually feels like a filmset!!! Anyway, where was I...Oh yes, the rooms are perfect, well, all you do is sleep and shower in them! SLEEP - the beds are sooo comfy, it was hard to get up in the morning. Breakfast is limited, but for the price you don't expect a full buffet, but it does to get you going in the morning...with the added bonus of free tea/coffee throughout the time you are there! Alan even provided lilo's by the pool when we had the occasional rest day from the parks. All I can say is BRILLIANT! See you again as soon as we can!

Room Tip: Didn't know if there was a fitness centre, so just added excellent anyway!

This hotel was great, me and my partner did 2 weeks here and i couldnt really fault it. Prices are good. Ok, it isnt the Hilton, but its clean and really more that we needed. The staff are fantastic, everyone there are more than helpfull and very friendly. If your in any doubts about what to do, where to see or even where to eat Chuck seems to know everything about the area. His knowledge and advice helped us fill in the gaps of our holiday and he sure helped us get the best out of it. The hotel is in a good place, i was worried about nearest fuel stations, food, bars but within a 30 second walk from the hotel there is a late night shop for snacks and drinks, late night fuel station, a late night macdonalds and Hoolihans bar and restaurant (nice place to eat and to drink in the evening.) Overall we are very pleased we chose this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

the hotel gets crowded at breakfast time also there is no shuttle service so we had to catch buses everywhere which stopped at eight o clock so if you want to see the late displays at disney you will have to get a taxi.to get to universal you need a taxi which costs 50 dollars each way as a bus takes over three hours. on a plus the staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel has become our home away from home...The continintal breakfast is good.. The staff is friendly and accomodating. We always feel safe staying here and our extended family and friends love it also. They have always worked with us when emergencies come up. For Terri M's posting .The Peabody is right up the road for 300 dollars a night.

Although the hotel was a little old it has been well kept. The rooms were clean and free of bugs, the beds were comfy and the staff was great. Everyone made our family feel right at home. It was conveniently located within 15 minutes of all the Disney parks. The mini fridge was a great thing to have. and the ac worked excellent. I have to say that one individual in particular goes out of his way to make sure you feel at home and have everything you need. Thank you CHUCK for everything and the tips on downtown Disney. We had a blast and will definitely be staying here again

TERRY G.

I hate to say anything bad about this place because we got an excellent price on a two night stay. The staff (Tom and a lady whose name I didn't get) were very pleasant. The room was ok, clean, quiet and the bed was comfortable but on the down side - There was a strange smell to the room, no tub, fan in bathroom very loud with bare bulb showing. What we thought was a refrigerator was a freezer with no refrigeration. There was an old toaster oven but no microwave. The free breakfast was one of the worst free breakfasts I've ever had - no fresh fruit, everything was cold. Cold French Toast you were supposed to microwave - heck the 2nd day it was worth it to us to spend $10 to get the breakfast at the nearby MacDonalds. The biggest issue we had was that when we returned one afternoon my daughter went to take a shower and there was no water. When we called down to the front desk we were told the water would be off for an hour due to repairs and didn't we see the signs posted in the lobby..Well, no we didn't go down to the lobby after we checked in the night before. I really wish they had told us the water would be shut off at 2 pm and we wouldn't have returned as soon. I talked to the manager and he said this was the best time to have the water off. By the way it was off for over 2 hours and, when it did come back on, the water ran brown for quite some time. My main complaint about this is I feel it was the hotel's responsibility to contact all the guests with this information instead of just posting a couple of signs in the lobby. That was not adequate notification of the situation so.... It was a deal but not sure I would stay there again so decide if a bargain price is worth it.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask them if they are anticipating a water shut down and skip the breakfast unless you...

I stay at the "Destiny Palms Hotel" every time I go to visit Walt Disney World. The servse is great, every thing is always clean and tidy. I love there beds, (they're much softer than the beds at the Walt Disney Resorts).... And you get a free continental breakfast! It doesn't get better than that! :)
