Rooms

Azure blue comforters and jade-colored walls and accents create a tropical feel in these comfortable accommodations at the International Palms Resort, which are available as standard rooms or suites. Beached-themed prints play up the casual style. Guests find the basics covered, including Wi-Fi access, work desk and sofa bed. A coffeemaker, mini-refrigerator and microwave invite in-room dining. Suites have the added luxuries of a dining table and separate living area.

Features

Families take advantage of the free-form resort-style pool surrounded by palm trees and lapping waterfalls at the International Palms Resort. The Pool Hut Bar serves light fare and drinks, while the Coral Key Bar and Grill gets the party started with nightly karaoke and live entertainment. Several fun activities are offered on site, such as movie night by the pool, create-your-own-ice-cream-sundaes, and handling alligators at Alligator Academy.

Apart from this hotel, holidaymakers can also unwind at the sister property, the oceanfront International Palms Resort Cocoa Beach located only 45 minutes away. It's the closest beach to Orlando! Vacationers enjoy the true Florida resort setting with choices of oceanfront suites, lofts, ocean view, poolside Cabana's and much more.

Average

Good location. Across tge street from Wet N Wild Waterpark, down the strew from Seaworld and Universal studios. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants . As far as the hotel you get what you pay for. During my stay the hotel was under construction and being wired to allow guests to access wifi. If you have a family it would be a great place to stay but not for the romantic couple.

Universal studios is $5 dollar parking in the evening as where you can walk around outside the park and check out the bands, shops and restaurants.

Not a bad place

Arrived at the hotel little early and did not allow me to check in till 4 p.m. The staff was not great as I thought and I had to sit with my family for almost 3 hours to check in. The elevators were bad and it seems like a very old facility. Do not compare this hotel with Hilton or Marriot and this is a low cost place for budget minded people. But it gives you value for your money.

ok for the price

Older Hotel in need of an upgrade but ok for the price, Mostly caters to european visitors and sometimes the checking line is very long with not enough staff to move it along. The staff has always been friendly and that is about the one real positive at this hotel

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.

Excellent value!!!

Although you could tell that the Hotel had been there for a while and was in need of some updating, the place was very clean and suited our needs. Incredible value. Only down side was that our car was broken into in the parking lot which included a broken drivers window, but talking to the staff, they were surprised, so I don't think it's a normal thing.
