This is the 2nd time we have stayed here on our way to cruising with Carnival. The people are great. Food is excellent and you can leave your car here while on the cruise ship.The rooms are clean and the pool is nice and big. I will stay here again on our next cruise

My husband was helping a young Veteran who had hit rock bottom. Because we had guest at our home over the weekend, my husband wanted to get him a room until the VA could get him housing.

This is an old well maintained property. The staff went overboard to make sure everything was just as we needed it. Our room had been updated and the bed was very comfortable. The morning of the cruise we had breakfast and then a shuttle picked us up and took us to the cruise ship.

The staff was great. They were helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. The facility is outdated and needs a deep cleaning and updating. The rooms are small and ours smelled a little musty. There was build up in the corners of the bathroom and some grime around the tub. The breakfast was OK but not great. Again dining room... More

This is agreat hotel. The staff was super friendly. Especially Amanda and Mo. They offer park and cruise which is great. The bathrooms are a little outdated but otherwise a great staff. Breakfast was awesome. They offer different options with cook to order food. Will definitely stay here again.

I'm on a bicycle vacation through the American South. I cycled on to Merritt Island after sunset. I found the Econolodge using Google Maps. Pretty tired after a seventy mile day I stumbled into the lobby looking disheveled. The general manager, Mr Oral Ali, was just leaving for the day but took the time to greet me. The front desk...
