Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Inn Tropical Palms Kissimmee Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Not the best"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Main complaint was not enough hot water in the shower. Not enough towels. Room dingy. Needs sprucing up. Did not like the outside hallways. Need more security and better weather stripping on the doors and windows. Did not like the extra amount we had to pay for the shuttle bus to Disney. We did not go to Disney.
