Great pool

This was a last minute booking to watch a satellite launch and the price was great and the location perfect. The man at the front desk told us where to go to see the launch and recommended the nearby beach park. We had fun playing in the surf while waiting for the launch. Hotel room was great and nice complimentary breakfast.

Great location to get on the Disney Cruise

Our stay was great! The pool was nice and the room had plenty of space for us. Very conveniently located to Port Canveral so we could get on our Disney Cruise.

One night stay before our Disney Dream cruise.

Pros: Shuttle service to the Disney Dream and breakfast service.
Cons: Wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Highly recommend the restaurant, The Preacher.
We were traveling with four children, ages 6 - 14, they loved their own sleeping space. Breakfast was fulfilling. We even had time to enjoy the exercise facilities while the kids enjoyed the pool. The staff was extremely nice and very accommodating. The car park option and shuttle service was time saving and an excellent money saver. We would highly recommend this hotel to all our friends and family traveling to Port Canaveral.

Perfect for cruises leaving from port canaveral

Pros: Perfect location & wonderful staff
This hotel is perfect in many ways! First, the location! We were just around the corner from our port. Around the corner were also a number of fantastic restaurants which were recommended by our amazing front desk attendant, Monique. She is reason #2 this hotel is the best!! From the minute we walked into the hotel (way earlier than check in) she was ready with answers, recommendations and smiles, oh and yummy cookies! Monique is the reason I enjoyed my stay there so much! An absolute pleasure!! I'd go back just to hang out with her! ;)

hotel close to port canavera / bad room experience

Pros: nothing
Cons: It needs work
room 210 the room a/c would only cool to 75 then cut off, something was wrong with the unit the cover for the a/c was held on with tape, which didn't hold it on the shower drain was very slow and you end up standing in ankle deep dirty water I reported it to the front desk, they said they would look into it.

Some rooms better than others

first room we were put in was pretty gross, smelled and really needed updated (they were in the middle of renovating so this will Probably happen soon). Upon request they upgraded us to a larger room that was much nicer. Night front desk Gal was amazing. Super nice and friendly. Biggest complaint is that they say they are 2 blocks from the Ocean but that is not the case. More like 5 blocks but not walkable because of busy road and then you would end up at the port. Had to drive to Ocean each time.
