    This hotel was slightly older, but still a great place to stay! It had all the essentials and comfy beds! Right on the beach, who could ask for more? I would definitely stay there again!

    For the price and the advertising of the facilities of being a "resort"... it was disappointing and dirty.

    Historical Traveler Reviews International Palms Resort & Conference Center Cocoa Beach

    Nice pool but that's it


    My 10-year-old son and I stayed here for 4 days in April 2003 while visiting around the Kennedy Space Center. Facility is generally old & beat up; too many school group stay here -- noisy around the pool at night. Great access to beach. Mold in bathroom; not enough outlets. For the price, we should have stayed at HoJo or Hilton down A1A. Once we arrived we found other beachfront hotels at better prices with pools just as nice.

    Look elsewhere..


    First, the room was booked on line for $77. Then when we checked in, there was $4.95 added per night, a 10% tax, totaling over $200 for 2 nights! We could have stayed at the Hilton for that! The sheets had not been changed on the beds. The tub had not been cleaned. Cob webs in the corner of the room. The staff was very cut and dry, matter of fact attitude. The basketball goal had a large hole in the backboard and the rim was bent up about a 30 degree angle! The good-- The pool area was great! My kids loved the kids pool. A close walk to the beach.

    Not as bad as feared


    After reading some of the other comments about the hotel we feared the worst. the hotel was booked through hotwire and could not be cancelled. We stayed for a week in February 2003. Check in was terrible, but the room was clean when we checked in, but small. It was made up every day by noon, but unless you request otherwise, the sheets are only changed every third day. That was ok with us. We usually took the vacum cleaner of the housekeeping cart and vacuumed ourselves, the spray something on the carpet , but do not vacuum. The pool is nice, but has a very noisy bar, the chairs are mostly broken, and on the last night several buses with school kids checked in, the pool was over run, and the buses ran for hours under our window. Only window is on the walk way and we needed the curtains closed most of the time. We would not stay there again, but the landscaping is very nice.



    I give this place 4 stars. As a teenager I thought this place to be great. The pool was gigantic, and surroundings in good shape. The restaurants had a good variety and the hotel workers were friendly. The rooms were clean and roomy and the beach was very long/big. My parents on top of that loved the bars and activities you can do. They've got beach volleyball and 2 tennis courts, a game room and a pool set aside fopr the little kids. This place is great for small children, teens and adults. Next time we go to Cocoa Beach we'll definiately stay here. :)

    Wonderful place for families


    I admit that I was leery about staying here again because I had had a bad experience there about a year ago. But, this turned out to be the best vacation we've ever had. We had two rooms there for about a week in August/September. The rooms were great. The staff was very friendly. The front desk staff really took care of us upon check in. Our kids loved the kids pool which has a pirate theme. The bartender at the pool bar was awesome. The lunch buffet was delicious.

    I mentioned the difference to the front desk staff upon check out. They said that the hotel has new management in place in several departments. I guess it is true that the managers can influence how the entire organization is run. I would definitely reccommend that everyone try this hotel for a family vacation.

    Please Don't Stay Here !!! I Wish I Hadn't !!


    My Family stayed here in late August of 2002 over a weekend. This had to be one of the worst hotel experiances we have ever had. Rooms are old, in need of repair, and not clean. Hotel was WAY short on staff also. Breakfast buffet was not anything to write home about either and overpriced. The only hotel staff person who went out of his way was the guy that rented out the beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. However, we paid $25 for the day but they took them away at 5 PM. It's daylight savings time in August people !!! We could have stayed on the beach another couple of hours !!

    On top of all this, we paid $100 a night for this !! AND they charged us about $50 just 'cause we took our little poodle along even though they told us before we went it was only going to cost us $20.

    Disappointed--In need of repair


    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanfront in Cocoa Beach in July 2002. When we pulled up it looked great, but looks are deceiving!

    Our room's door jam was rotting out, our lamp's switch was broke so we had to plug and unplug it, our bathroom floor was dirty . . .

    My son enjoyed the pool, but even it needed repair. The poolside chairs were breaking down too! We checked out a day early and went back to Orlando.



    i stayed at holiday inn in cocoa beach fl about 2 years ago and i would never never stay there not a nice place rooms are bad asked for a beach front room got nothing just a view of trees not a good time waste of money

    Go elsewhere!


    Florida Travel & Tourism website offers a discounted rate of $69 a room - and a discount on Kidsuites. Unfortunately - the hotel is EXTREMELY dirty, the staff and management are rude and completely unhelpful.

    This hotel is actually 2 1960s lodges merged into 1 Holiday Inn. Unfortunately they didn't bother replacing ANY of the 1960's furniture/light fixtures/window treatments, etc. And, because of the merge - the place is a maze with locked doors!

    The restaurant staff won't wait on you if you have kids (Holiday Inn=Kids Eat Free) -We actually had to eat at other restaurants!! All of the parents we met had complained to the management about this. But nothing was done - nor were we compensated.

    Great place for kids


    We stayed there 4/4/2001 in a kids suite. Very large complex with a lot to do. Not very many rooms with a view of the beach, but easy to walk to.

Vejret var fantastisk, 32 -35 grader. Og fin solskin. Lige til at holde ud. Det ser dog ud til at der hver eftermiddag, ved 16-17 tiden kommer regn og torden... Ikke noget …

The tour guide was amazing, giving us fun facts about alligators and Florida. We were able to see a lot of alligators just lounging in the water and on the banks. After or tour we drove down a little back road and spotted a …

One of which he describes as not so much a looker, with the other being a 19 year old Beach Babe. Prior to showing me a picture of them together, he says that some reckon she looks as though she's his daughter. But Steve thinks they look like a couple. Sadly Steve you are deluded buddy! Oh yes by the way he 55 years old.
