“Decent, peaceful & approachable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Its quite a nice place for the price point. We had to extend our stay by one day & they readily confirmed at the same price. House-keeping kept us pleasantly surprised everyday we when we walked into our room after a whole day at Disney parks.
Breakfast is standard. Though they should consider increasing the dining area size to accommodate guests.

The one thing that was slightly off - keys to the room. They worked & sometimes they did not.

Since it was already quite late in the night & we figured our key doesnt work, we called the reception to get assistance. Their reply - you have to come n get it corrected (we were exhausted after the whole day at Disney theme park, but no consideration to that). Secondly the receptionist got the room no wrong & configured the key wrongly & then again blamed my husband for that. In each of these exchanges, we walked the entire aisle, all the way down to ground floor. I only wonder if the staff thinks guests like playing pranks on them in the middle of the night.

Besides that, a nice peaceful stay. Would recommend the place, though choose to write down your requests instead to speaking to the staff to avoid being blamed in the middle of the night.

Room Tip: Doesnt really matter, you spend most of the time at Disney & other parks.

Located just outside Disney, convenient to restaurants and attractions, we found this gem. We had been staying in Disney Value Resorts in the past, but they priced themselves out of what we were willing to pay this last year. Disney offers no free breakfast and no free wi-fi, no microwave, no refrigerator and small rooms. Galleria Palms has it all including a free shuttle to the attractions at very decent prices. Their bathrooms have plenty of counter space and double sinks. We will definitely stay there again.

Since living in Florida I try to stay in a less expensive hotel to save money. This is by far the best hotel I have stayed in while visiting the area. Clean rooms, friendly staff and decent breakfast. The beds and pillows are super comfortable I wish I could have taken them home. The hotel was not too crowded so the noise was kept to a minimum. Since it is not on the highway, there was no traffic noise either. I can't wait to visit again!

Stayed here 3 nights. Price was very low per night. There is a free shuttle service daily to epcot and magic kingdom. Friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean. Hotel located near restaurants and supermarkets (walking distance!). Overall excellent value for price. Only cons: wifi connection is too slow & breakfast area seating is too small...45 seatings and everyone wants to eat at the same time as the shuttle leaves at 8.50 am....i wiuld recommend this if you do not want to stay in the expensive disney resorts. There is a resort fee here of approx 8 dollars per night...

We recently stayed at the Galleria Palms in Kissimmee, FL. and would like to say that it is "hidden" for a reason. Not the best choice of hotels in the area. We were traveling through the area and found this online so we thought we would give it a try. It was a bit difficult to find but conveniently located to area restaurants and attractions so that was appealing. Our room was clean and the beds comfortable but there was too much furniture (so the room was a little crowded) and it was dated. The chairs were hard and very uncomfortable to sit on. There were no luggage racks in the room which made things a bit awkward with large suitcases. There was also no hotel information books (you know, the book that most hotels have in their rooms with in-house information as well as local information). The AC was noisy and you could hear outside noises clearly. Last but not least, and probably most important to most people, was the lack of usable free wifi. We tried numerous times to sign in then finally called the front desk. We were told that it logs you off after 30 seconds if you are not active. We wouldn't know because we could not even get connected. We've never heard this before and have never had issues at other hotels. That was a bit frustrating. Overall, would not stay at this hotel again. Plenty of other choices.

I am an annual pass holder to Disney World and go monthly, always staying at different hotels because I hadn't found a great one till I stayed at this hotel last week.
Pros:
-very comfortable beds (firm but not too stiff)
-VERY clean rooms
- very close to Disney parks (located on the back roads of animal kingdom)
- entry to rooms is from within the hotel (more secure that way)
- awesome free breakfast (had eggs, sausage with gravy, biscuits, 4-5 cereals, waffles, bagels, muffins, etc.
- wi-fi worked good from my room (which was at the far end of the hotel)
- NO BUGS!
- very friendly and helpful front desk staff

Overall amazing hotel, I've stayed at a Disney value resort and this hotel was MUCH better than that. If you're the type of person who will complain about a small chipped corner on the paint of a furniture or of a small clip on the faucet missing then you might give this a 4 star rating, but aside from the most insignificant things, this hotel is a GREAT deal for the price, location, comfort and amenities.

Room Tip: Room 230 which is on the far end of the hotel is more quiet since there is only one wall connected t...

I have enjoy my stay at this hotel. Very comfortable beds and modern rooms. The only reason why I am not giving 5 is because the wifi wasn't that good, other than that I believe this is a great hotel and I recommended. Close to most of the main attractions.
