"Great Time!"
July 2018
Our check-in process was simple, the room was clean and cozy, and the location to Disney was great! Quick Uber ride, and it was nice to have a quiet place to chill after a long day at the park. Would definitely go again!

the room was average we didn't have bugs.the shower pressure was ok. the ice machine was down. the breakfast food was average if your really hungry. if you decide to leave a day early they won't refund the money. I left early due to bad weather and couldn't do the activities my husband and I had planned for our kids so we decided to leave early.

"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

"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.

Very happy customer. I’ll be back. They were so kind and allowed for late check in. It’s important to have a good place to go to when coming to Orlando. Great restaurants nearby and a warm welcome. I’ll see you soon.

We stayed at Destiny Palms Hotel for 13 nights this month and it was great! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were a great size, comfy beds and it was all in all a great place. With only 15 minutes to magic Kingdom it was a great location to stay as well. The only thing I might have wanted was a bigger variety of choices for breakfast. However there are so many places near the hotel we wanted to try so that wasn't a big deal. I'm sure I'll stay here again on our next trip!

"Decent Hotel"

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, its a basic room. Nothing outstanding about the place, but nothing terrible either. It was a clean room, on the smaller side, which provided us with TV, microwave, and a refrigerator. Our check in and check out experience was fine, no problems, we requested a late check out and they gave us an extra 2 hours! No big complaints EXCEPT for one...when we walked into our room we noticed a smell, not necessarily bad, but there was one. After about 15 minutes of being in our room we turned on our A/C - there was a more prominent smell then. So we looked inside the A/C vent to see clumps of white? White mold? We called the front desk immediately. Maintenance came to inspect and informed us the previous guests dumped baby powder down the A/C unit to make the room smell good...who does that? The maintenance man proceeded to tell us that he has seen this before and is causes damage to the units & that he tried to clean it out the best he could. The clumpy white chunks were formed due to the condensation the unit puts out. Once he told us this we could identify the smell to being baby powder. There was no musty moldy smell at all. Other than a baby powder scent in our room, we had no complaints. We also want to emphasize the convenience of location, directly across from the hotel is a 7-11, McDonalds, and Manny's Chophouse. The 7-11 came in handy for quick snacks/gas & Manny's Chophouse is absolutely fantastic. Their food is reasonably priced and delicious & the atmosphere is great as well. We wouldn't hesitate to book another stay here when traveling to Orlando again.

"Quiet Hotel close to Parks"

Reviewed October 05, 2019
Stayed 10 nights here the hotel is basic, the rooms a little on the small side, with comfortable beds, microwave , fridge, coffee machine, towels were changed daily, could do with a refurb but remember what you pay, if you want 5* pay 5* prices. Breakfast is included in the price which consists of cereal, toast , l bagels , pancakes, if you want meat cheese fruit etc you can take your own. The staff are very friendly, the owner being present most of the time,always ready for a chat. The ice machines weren’t working but you only had to ask at reception for a bag The location of this hotel is ideal for the parks. I would recommend this hotel for a budget hotel, will use it again

It’s a budget hotel so remember that. Bed was clean and comfortable staff was fantastic but the breakfast is pretty sad. No fresh fruit offered, just toast bagels and egos, milk, juice and coffee. My biggest issue was our room always felt wet, our bed, my clothes even with the AC running. There is no humidity control on the main floor. Over all to save some money it does the job. The staff again, FANTASTIC! They accommodated our unplanned early arrival.
