“Great Stays”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We have stayed at this hotel on 4 separate occasions since April of 2010. All of the visits were for a Carnival Cruise. Parking is great and the shuttle to and from the terminal are excellent! Duana and Crystal have the system in perfect shape! Sean, the general manager, was wonderful in working with me on our last visit in April of 2012. Thanks Sean and it was nice to put a face with the email. We are coming back on June 29th for my 50th birthday cruise with friends and we have already booked our rooms. Cant' wait. Would not hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone especially those taking at cruise!

Room Tip: If possible request a room of the terminal if you have never been on your ship. What a delight the...

This is the second time we stayed at CI&S pre-cruise. We actually came down a day early to visit the Kennedy Space Center this time - saw the Discovery before it was sent to the Smithsonian. As before, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend anyone stay here when looking for a good pre-cruise experience. We drove down and left our car there for the duration. It was safe and sound when we got back. The shuttle service was an important component for us when choosing this hotel. Quick and efficient - we were off the Freedom of the Seas and back at the hotel in our car by 7:45 AM. Thanks Duane & Crystal - you're both great! The hotel is good but the dependability of the shuttle service is what will bring us back in the future.

Good hotel close to Port Canaveral. Breakfast was filling, rooms were quiet and plenty of parking. Clean room with very comfortable bed. Would stay again when going on our next cruise.

Hotel was everything I could expect -- and more. We actually had planned on only a one night's stay before our cruise, but due to poor airline customer service, we ended up staying an extra two days at the end of the cruise. The friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. The hotel is in a great location -- close to many restaurants within easy walking distance (we stayed over Easter) and close to cruise ship terminals. The included breakfast was better than expected -- the taff kept all food items well stocked -- both hot and cold items. The shuttle service to and from cruise ship terminals was fantastic. The owners are to be complimented on everything. Couldn't ask for a better value for the price!

Room Tip: If you are planning a cruise out of Port Canaveral, consider this hotel in your plans. Be sure to m...

Country inn and suites

Check in is at 3 and check out is at noon. There are cookies available at the counter.

We stayed here on a Friday night for their Stay and Cruise Package. You are assigned to a shuttle only upon arrival so we were on an 11:30 shuttle, later than I had hoped. ( I had asked for the earliest in a note when I made the reservation)
There were no rooms in the cheapest category that I had booked so we were given a King Jacuzzi room. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. It overlooked the pool area which looked nice but is only open dawn to dusk, with no after hours lighting, which is a shame. It would have been very nice at night and I did see parents carefully watching their children swim in the dark as it was still early for active children to settle down.

The room had the jacuzzi set up in one corner of the room, a 25 inch older tube TV, a king bed which was very comfortable, two wing chairs with a table between, a wet bar area with small sink, under counter fridge and a small microwave. This would be useful if you were actually staying in the area and wanted to save money on meals, which are very expensive in this area.

The bathroom area had the large sink vanity open to the room with a small coffee maker. The toilet and shower were in a small separate room. The shower was a small stall and had good water pressure but there was no way to escape the water if you wanted to shave your legs or even soap up thoroughly. We had no shampoo on our counter so had to go down to the desk for some. Instead of the typical bottled toiletries to match the conditioner and lotion we did have we were given one of those promotional packets you occassionally get in the mail. The closet was very small but did have an iron and board.

Breakfast is provided and consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage links and herbed cubed potatoes. There was salsa and cheese to dress the eggs. They also had a waffle station, cold boiled eggs, thawed frozen fruit medley, oranges, and bananas which were still green. A toaster area had white bread, bagels and english muffins. There was a variety of cold cereals and oatmeal.

There is a laundry room. I would not want to stay near the elevators as it had a very loud female voice proclaiming each floor and the rooms were not very sound proof. You could conceivably hear that all night long.

This area is easy to find but is in the industrial area of the port, and not near the beach. For an overnight stay before a cruise it would be perfect but if you want to see the area beaches I would suggest something on the beach.

Parking for the cruise is in either the paved side parking or gravel parking in front of the property. There is no shade and you are given a tag to hang from your mirror which negates the use of a sunshade in the window. Pick up was a bit confusing as there are several ships' passengers being shuttled. You need to find the person with the clipboard to check in and then make sure you know when your name is called. Either we did not hear our name or she skipped us because I noticed she called a name farther down the list. I went over to make sure we did not miss something and were immediately put on a shuttle with both NCL and CCL cruisers. My husband stood with another man in the aisle while the driver directed me and the other woman to the very rear seat. We had to climb over people and luggage and at one point in the journey the luggage pile shifted and landed on my foot so be wary of this.

They also had another shuttle which towed a trailer behind it loaded with the luggage which would be safer if you have children with you. The driver spoke so fast and there was so much noise we could not hear a thing about what to do when we got back but there is a number on your return shuttle ticket to call. When you disembark the Port Agents know exactly where to direct you.

We waited about 15 minutes for the shuttle, arrived back to the car safe and sound. If you were staying on that night before departing you could eat breakfast. We were  not but were offered coffee and bathroom use before departing. Would definitely stay here again for a cruise.

Room Tip: Do not book near elevator because of constant automated floor announcements

Clean and friendly hotel. We stayed here after going out on the Victory Casino Ship rather than drive back to the Orlando area after midnight.

Great location and value near the cruise ship terminals. Stayed here for the last weekend Shuttle Discovery was being retired. Oustanding pool with waterfall spa and kids umbrella pool. Nice hot breakfast. Cocoa Beach right next door with Ron Jons Surf Shop a few miles down the road. Near all restaurants and shops. Right near beaches that were open and not crowded. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach.
