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.

Fun

This was a fun stop. It felt like a great old Florida hotel that had aged a bit but still had some oomph. Location and price were the best features, perfect for the budget traveler. There was a car rental right on site and plenty of public transportation options just outside the gate.

Best Value

This hotel looks like it needs to be renovated and is a little anachronistic compared to what is around it. But for the price you cannot get closer to Universal, with a free shuttle. Also a great pool and hot tub.

You get what you pay for. Fine, not great.

My room was fine for what I paid. It was very dated, beds weren't great. But it was cheap. I'm not one of those travellers who will complain because I didn't get 5 star comfort when I'm paying 2 to 3 star prices. I was pleased to have a refrigerator in my room, and the pool and hot tub looked nice, but I didn't have time to use them and it was a bit too cold out for the pool. There's a little volleyball court that's probably fun if you have kids or a group. My one problem, albeit a serious one: I GOT LOCKED IN MY ROOM! What if there was a fire or other emergency? I don't care how much you pay for your room, you should not EVER be locked IN your room! My door finally opened, but I was seriously ready to break a window. And when I went to check out, there were no staff anywhere to be found and I was in a hurry to get to a meeting, so I never had a chance to talk to anyone in person (only on the phone when it happened). I feel I should have been comped one night's stay, but I didn't have time to hang around and wait for someone to come to the desk and then to probably get the run around about it. I won't be staying there again.

Accomidating, but Shouldn't Have to Be

I took my two daughters to Florida this Thanksgiving 2014 to visit family. We spent two nights at the Palms so we could visit Universal. It was in a great location, though their free shuttle to and from the park has only two times, 7-5pm and 10-6:30, both of which you cannot see fireworks. The taxis from the hotel charge $10 unmetered, and the taxis from the park charge $6-$7, metered. Guess the tip is built in. The hotel has decent amenities - unless you're in "the tower". Our room the first night, booked through Cheap Tickets as a package, was on the second floor of the tower. There weren't any bed spreads, the view was a roof with rusted electrical boxes, and the security latch was broken. We didn't get in until 11:30pm, and both my daughters were asleep. I called to request a room change the next morning. Also, two of the three elevators weren't working. It stormed the next day, so I had to run from the tower to the office to change rooms. I was drenched. The gift shop had rain gear, but overpriced of course. They gave me a room in building D, which I recommend. Much nicer room, and I could dry my clothes enough to pack them for home. We didn't have much of a chance to use their amenities. The breakfast café was great, and they offer coupons. The bar was open until 11-ish. They have an alligator alley on site, but it wasn't open to visit... The pricing was fair for the results, I guess, I just didn't expect these results from such a high star-scoring hotel.

Not crazy about this...

We arrived and was given a dirty room. I contacted the front desk and they switch us to another room but that room did not have a tv remote, no blankets, and smelled strange (Not like smoke or anything like that just not necessarily clean) For a place that charges $16 for a resort fee (Which was refunded because of the dirty room we were initially given) and places an additional hold for $50 for "Special Services" (which is supposed to be refunded if you don't call for anything like concierge service) they need to be up to par. The best things here though are the Staff (who were very nice) and the location, it's well placed and convenient for many of the attractions that Orlando offers.

Visiting from nashville

Hotel was average. No major complaints only the elevators. Only one elevator worked the whole time. Room was clean and what I expected. Great hotel for the price in my opinion.
