The causeway to the Merritt Island NWR is at downtown Titusville. However, that area is nowhere near the ocean beaches, and the tourist accomodations are fairly sterile.

As you may realize because you are from Orlando, the main tourist area around there is at Cocoa Beach, which is separated from the Merritt Island NWR by the Kennedy Space Center. There are a number of hotels and maybe 200 restaurants along highway A1A, which parallels the beach. However, it is about a 30-40 minute drive from CB to the NWR -- almost as far as from Orlando, so you might not gain that much.

The better hotels in Titusville are located out at I-95 and SR 50 -- the eastern end of Orlando's Colonial Drive. From the Holiday Inn, Fairfield, etc., it is still 15 minutes from the NWR visitor center or Black Point Drive.
