Port Canaveral Hotels

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recommendation on hotels that would have shuttles to the Port?  Trying to decide whether to stay in Orlando for the night and take a shuttle in the morning or go straight to Port Canaveral and leave from there.

Why time does your flight arrive? That would be a key determinant. The later, the more likely I am going to be inclined to stay in Orlando.

 

There are many threads here on hotels in the PC area.

We prefer to stay in Orlando where there are 1000's of hotels in every price range, and then head to PC the morning of our cruise.

We really enjoyed our stay at La Quinta Inn in cocoa beach on A1A..,,there are two right near each other......this one was owned by the original astronauts and had some neat decorations.  We used cocoa beach shuttle to get from airport  to hotel.  The hotel does have a shuttle ($7/pp) to get to the port.  This hotel was within walking distance to restaurants, a dollar general, the beach.

The four closest to the port are Homewood Suites, Country Inn & Suites, Residence Inn and Radisson At The Port.

 

All offer a shuttle to the port....the first three also have free breakfast.  The Radisson does not but there is a restaurant on site, a family restaurant next door and a McDonalds across the street.

 

Personally I prefer the first three over the Radisson as it has become a bit dated.

We like to stay in Port Canaveral the night before as it takes some time to get

from Orlando.

From MCO and nearby hotels, it takes under an hour.

I can recommend Residence Inn at the port. Not a bad hotel and there is a shuttle to the port in the morning.

We also stayed several times at the Hyatt right inside the Orlando airport. In the morning we took a private shuttle to the port.

Just check the hotel rates and it will be clear.

I've stayed at the Homewood Suites in Port Canaveral.  Depending on location of room, great view of port/ships in the morning and about 5 minutes away from port.

Those hotels are all within a few blocks of each other (take a look at Google Maps).  There is a nice food option available to all of them, Southern Charm.  A nice, locally-owned, non-chain restaurant, easily walkable from all.  Plus, you could do a little walk back to the Manatee Sanctuary Park or the Banana River Park from any of them.
