I was greeted very well. Probably the best greeting I ever got from a hotel. So congrads on that. Checked in very fast and even given directions on where to eat without me even asking. The room was way in the back and I did not feel so safe where I had to park. Kind of dark and scary. But... More

Stayed here and left car while on cruise out of Port Canaveral. This worked out very well. The property is a little old, but the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Breakfast was made to order and we were able to have it to go and eat in our room. The food was excellent. The... More

My wife and I and our sons recently stayed at this Clarion for a night while waiting for our apartment to be ready to move into and as a frequent traveler and Choice Rewards Diamond Member, I expected way more from a Clarion branded location. The hotel is very old and as you drive up the first thing you see... More

You have to get to the rooms from the outside, but wasn't a problem. Despite the look of the hotel on the outside, the rooms were actually comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, which you get a voucher for its restaurant on-site. The staff were really nice. We didn't get to use the pool, but it looked like they have a... More

We stayed here September 2013. This is a VERY old hotel that can really use a major upgrade. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The restaurant was clean and the food was okay. For Islanders, you would love the fact that they serve GRITS! Lots of restaurants in the area to choose from: Red Lobster across the street, Burger... More

The hotel is located on the main drag on Merritt Island. The hotel was clean, service outstanding and food was great. The hotel is very old and does not appear to have had any major overhaul in a very long time. The room was a bit musty probably due to age.

I was looking for a hotel not too far from the beach or from Cocoa and I thought this would work. I should have known differently when entering the parking lot. The staff are very friendly and the landscaping is nice but I guess they are the only positives. This is a place where I wouldn't leave anything in your... More

Trying to find a clean and comfortable hotel at an affordable price during Spring Break is quite a difficult task! This place was priced right where I wanted but I wasn't looking forward to the stay.
