“They must pay people to put reviews on this website....not clean or nice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for a Disney weekend without spend a ton of money. We booked this hotel due to the rating here. We thought it was cheap due to a lack of amenities not cleanliness. It lacks both! The guest service people seamed nice but not any nicer than a normal hotel. The rooms are very small, smaller than most master bedrooms! Again all ok for the price. However the room was disgusting! The sink fixture was not bolted down, mildew everywhere, dirt and grim in all corners of the room, plaster falling off the walls, and a dirty smell everywhere! The bed was lumpy and realy not that comfy. The breakfast was free, however some of the worst i have ever had, could not even eat anything but cereal. If you stay here bring some cleaning supplies! I would avoid even for the money!

Stayed April 2012

My family and I had been saving money for the last several years in order to take the kids to Disney. So I literally spent months reading reviews on tripadvisior about hotels. Once I had it narrowed down, I even took it one step further and called the local police department to see if these hotels were safe and if they were in a good area. This is why we decided to take a chance on the Destiny Palms Hotel. Coming all the way from Petersburg, IL, I was a little wary of some of the reviews I had read. But overall Destiny Palms didnt scare me like some of the others did and in the end I was SO glad I picked the right hotel. We stayed in Rm 310 from March 14th to March 26th 2012. Out the door, taxes, fees it was $753.67- to me one hell of a bargain for everything we got!!

PROS of the hotel: ALAN was GREAT (the general manager)!! He went above and beyond to ensure our stay was pleasant. Having free breakfast everyday, having one less meal to make. My kids loved it!! (and they are all picky eaters). The outdoor pool was clean. Alan would even let my kids swim later at night as long as I was there with them. Having an on-site laundry was a blessing- I did so much laundry I was thankful we didnt have to go to a laundromat. They have a computer in the lobby you can use free of charge. The room was clean!!! Housekeeping was OUTSTANDING- they did a great job each and everyday. The kids wrote thank you notes that I know they really appreciated. The shower was big. There were four of us staying in the room and it wasnt cramped like I thought it would be. The refrigerator helped saved us alot of money. NO BUGS!!! The bed was comfortable. WE WERE SAFE!! Great location. We were 5 minutes from Disney and 20 from Universal. Loved the McDonalds right by it. And best of all, the room was modern.

CONS of the Hotel: the ladies that worked the front desk were not very pleasant. They were not friendly and their customer service skills need much improvement. What they lacked the male staff made up for. The continental cereal says a name brand- when in fact they used a generic brand. Upon arriving there were black hairs on the toliet. The room was a little dusty. The smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night and made a loud beeping sound-the battery was eventually changed. At times the hotel does have a weird smell to it. The sheets were not form fitting. The refrigerator temperature could have been colder.

Room Tip: The third floor was great!!

We just got back a week and a half ago and stayed there for 5 nights. The king size bed we had was absolutely amazing. The rest of the group we were with said their beds were the same! Comfy, comfy, comfy. The room was also very attractive and clean. I would recommend this site to any of my friends and family traveling to go to Disney. This hotel was on a main strip with so much shopping, resturants, and a main way to get to the Disney parks. Staff was also great! So friendly and helpful. And the rates are very affordable!! Thanks Destiny Palms Hotel for making our trip a great one!

Room Tip: Get a king size bed if it fits your needs!

This has to be one of the best value hotels in the area.Just back from a 12 night stay and really can't fault it! This is a well run, clean and friendly hotel and worth much more than the 2 stars it has. The staff were helpful and friendly, especialy Alan who deserves a medal for coping with busy breakfast times! There was free wi-fi, free use of pc in lobby (including printing for boarding passes and maps), free coffee and tea on tap AND free breakfast included in the price!! The pool area was lovely with sunloungers, tables and chairs with sunshades. Do not hesitate to book rooms here, you will not be disappointed. A very warm welcome awaits you at the Destiny Palms.

Room Tip: All rooms are good
