Good value

Whether you will be happy at this hotel depends more on you than on the hotel. It is located in a fairly congested area with some interesting attractions right across the street. The room was clean. Everything worked. It was not noisy. We paid $89 per night in January which we felt was very good value. The breakfast buffet cost $12 and we also felt that was a good value. The pool area is attractive and was not overcrowded during our stay. There is plenty of parking at no additional cost. On the negative side, The elevators show evidence of A hard life and were a little dirty giving a poor first impression. In the bathroom the tub faucets were a little difficult to operate and there was a chip of paint chipped out here and there. Overall, this is a good value in a three-star hotel. If you were looking for a four or five star hotel at a three star price you'll not find it here.

Hotel location was just off the turnpike, next to Wet N Wild. I thought the location was perfect. International Drive is the hub of Orlando, next to lots of restaurants, shopping and night life.

Great for what you pay for

The hotel is right near so many restaurants and attractions just minutes from sea world. Only problem is the constant traffic makes it almost impossible to drive in and out of hotel entrance on international drive. Pool was great so was jacuzzi. Room kept clean and the front desk staff was pleasant. You get discounts at parks and discounts at local restaurants for being a guest at the hotel.

Great fun for the price!

Went to Universal's Mardi Gras and was nice having a hotel so close. The pool area was real nice, but spa (jacuzzi) was under renovation. Nice for future guest, wink, wink ;-). The staff was nice and the housekeeping very helpful. You couldn't beat the price we paid for what we got in the Orlando area. If you keep it real like I do you won't be disappointed. If you are one of those people who want the moon and the stars, but really don't want to open your wallet, well then you're probably better off staying at home anyway letting the rest of us enjoy our vacation.

Really not that bad

I have read reviews before going and it said it looked old and tacky but i found that there were positives too. For instance, they have a beautiful pool that looked like u were in a tropical forest and had colored lights at night that gives it a mystical look. There are newly renovated rooms and the place is in the midst of many activities and storefronts. Plus, its only like 40 bucks a night guys. Its really not that bad.

Orlando Getaway

The hotel was in a great location, lots of dining within walking distance. The shopping was 10 minutes up the road and you were 5 minutes from the interstate. The hotel was very clean and the people there were very polite and genuinely nice. The little safe in my room needed batteries, not much of a issue.

International Palms Resort

Older hotel which may look a little shop-worn in places if you look for it, but clearly well taken care of in the section we stayed in. Sheets changed daily were so crisp and clean they crinkled every time you moved in bed; staff excellent- helpful, friendly and polite; any problem mentioned was immediately taken care off (broken hair dryer in room); food in the restaurant plentiful and very well prepared for several meals eaten there. Pool sparkling and hot tub warm! What more do you want in a place to crash and relax while visiting the area.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the trolley whenever possible to miss some of the traffic and parking problems and expense if you are staying on International Drive for events. $1.25 adults/.25 age 65 and over/young kids free with adult. You can travel almost the whole length of Int. Drive.
