A family-friendly taste of the tropics in Orlando by major theme parks

A sports bar, pool bar, and full-service restaurant is available on site. Rooms come with Wi-Fi access, mini refrigerator, microwave oven. Additional services include 24-hour business center, parking and shuttle service to parks.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

Lets be realistic !

Everyone trys to complain about this hotel, lets be honest...your located in the middle of everything! you can walk to universal and citywalk. its like we say, its around the corner. keep in mind your only in the room to sleep and rest after your out all day at the attractions. so to be close to everything you can get pass the small things, like the elavators that take forever to come up to get you and bring you down. and the fact that the room can use a paint and tv upgrade. but like I said before your only in the room to sleep so that is minor things. I never found bed bugs or dead bugs in my bed! like other reviews stated!

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

They will try to offer you lower ticket prices, which is true.....but be ready to go to a "90 min" timeshare. that actually took 2 hrs! so dont do it unless you want half day wasted!

Great Value and Great Place!

We stayed for one night, but the staff was so friendly and they had so many activities. Orlando can be expensive, but they had stuff planned for free at the hotel that could make a family trip on a budget a little easier. The bathroom was a little outdated, but seriously the only thing I was "disappointed" about I would say, but it was still clean and worked well. Breakfast is not included, it $12.00/person, but they give you several coupons at check-in and 20% off breakfast is one of them.

The Villa is better than the other rooms

We have stayed there previously and tried a different location within the hotel. They had just renovated it, but it was not as nice nor as comfortable as the villa rooms they offer. They did just renovate, so everything is newly painted and the carpets are new. They also offered movies on your television that aren't out on DVD yet for about $5, which is pretty reasonable if you are looking for something to do at night. There are plenty of eateries located around the area and transportation to and from Universal Studios Orlando.

Never Again

Never again will I stay at this hotel. The room had roaches and the tower looks like a prison. The jacuzzi was dirty. Never again will I stay there.
