"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

Tip: Continental breakfast and short driving distance to Disney

"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.

This property is old but very well maintained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. People are nice and polite. But the rooms are very small. It is not so close to the main gate as claimed in the advertisement.

"Good stay at a reasonable price, no complaints"

Reviewed February 17, 2020
This hotel was exactly as expected, a cheap stay. The staff was great and took care of every need we had. The continental breakfast was ok. A lot of breads and carbs. Coffee was very good. Room was clean and cleaning staff did a good job. It was difficult to set up 2 suitcases as the room was small but it’s managable. The only thing “ missing” for us was an outdoor area to sit an relax we did use outdoor pool area but gets locked up at sunset. All in all a nice stay. After all when in Orlando you don’t spend much time in your room anyway. Oh location was good easy commute to wherever you needed to go.

"Fine for the advertised price. Too bad we paid more. "

Reviewed February 03, 2020
This is more of a review about TripAdvisor and their new Agoda service when booking travel. Don’t trust the price. Hidden fee’s show up in the confirmation that weren’t obvious in prepurchase. Admin fee’s and resort fee’s (not a resort) as well as another onsite mangers fee.

"Old and dirty-photos are not accurate."
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 30, 2020
This property is an old Sleep Inn or Rodeway Inn. It is run down and dirty. Although it offers parking and breakfast there is an additional fee at check in. The king rooms barely have space for 2 suitcases. The upside, the beds seemed cleaned although not made up fresh each day. Staff is friendly. In the breakfast area and on a column the following sign was posted. “To our valued guests: Tonight the temperatures will be cold. Just turn off your (sp) AC. If you turn on your heat it will smell and it may the fire alarm to go off. It’s OK, just turn on your bathroom fan and contact the front desk. Thank You. Management” This sums it up!

Reviewed January 15, 2020
Clean, clean, clean, a great location and truly bargain price for the location. The staff were wonderful and attentive to all are needs and wants. It seems the staff acts as a family and makes you feel like they really care, not like most hotels who just have people going through the old routine they seemed to really care. We did not expect much for the price but the Destiny Palms far delivered more than just a value. When we go back we know where we will stay!
