“About what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The staff was very polite.

The complimentary breakfast was OK, but it was in a small room that became very crowded very quickly. Also, having the microwave used to heat up cold flapjacks and waffles right underneath the rest of the food, made the cramp quarters even worse as people were just standing around the food, waiting for their turn at the microwave. I ate their the first morning, then other plans the following 2 days of my trip.

I had a room with a king bed, and it was at the end of a hallway. There was a very load air vent right outside my door, but was not noticeable once I was in the room.

The room was clean, but extremely out dated, especially the bathroom and shower.

Since I was on the first floor, and my room faced the front parking lot, I didn't feel comfortable sleeping with the curtain pulled open; however, closing it meant the heater/air conditioner vent would be blocked. I have eventually used the iron board to tie the current still and back so that the vent would blow into the room, not behind the current.

The room was clean, although you could see where the furniture had been moved in due to some minor markings on the walls. The bathrooms were clean and the beds were VERY comfortable. We felt safe and had a wonderful stay, the price of the room was also competitive with others that had worse reviews. It would have been nicer to have an indoor pool, and some fresh fruit at breakfast. However, the complimentary breakfast was better than expected and the room service was fantastic. I will recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: Make sure your door closes all the way, sometimes it only seems like it's shut.

It was an amazing experience staying at this hotel. The owner is super friendly the breakfast was great, the room was nice and clean. Good people, good hotel. It is really close to Disney also and if you are hungry there is 2 restaurants walking distance from the hotel.

I was hosted a few times and I will continue hosting at the Destiny Palms.
No longer I have to worry about finding the best lodging option in Orlando, FL.
The hotel is very well managed, offers security and is very well located. Near Walt Disney World, Walmart, Pizza Hut...all you need.
Nothing to worry about ... only enjoy disney and purchases.
I recommend...

We have had nothing short of a perfect stay. We come to Orlando to enjoy the parks but we also like to rest and spend time in our room. The room was equipped with a mounted flat screen tv, a nice size mini fridge and a mini toaster oven. They have a microwave available in the breakfast area 24/7. Chuck the manager made sure our room charge was correct. We had used a voucher and were overcharged at check in. I had not noticed and he caught the error. We will certainly be staying again. Not only is it a nice place, it's away from the mayhem of International Dr. It's also a great value for what you get.
We traveled with our seven year old and he gives the thumbs up too. He is a total Hotel Lover. His endorsement comes with experience :)

The hotel is just an all right place to stay.Depending on the priceyou pay you might get a better place down the road. I do have to say the rooms and building is clean and the staff very nice. the sheets on the bed did not fit right and were always bunched up.Had to keep fixing all night.The rooms were very small and we had a toaster oven not a microwave.Hard to heat styrofoam leftovers it it.The breakfast was just ok and the room was very crowded.Pool was not filled so no swimming and no fitness room.Is your low cost stay.

Room Tip: Check out one of the other many places on the road first

I found this to be a great place to stay with location, value and service at the top of the list. The management goes out of their way to make you stay a very pleasant experience. I would recommend this property for both business and pleasure. If you are going to the amusement parks it is well located for convenience and close to many good restaurants.
