I stayed 8/9-8/10. I was looking for the basics in my stay. Did not want to pay too much for one night. I was going to take a cruise the next day and as long as it was clean, close to where I needed to be for my vacation, it was good. It was in a good location. Good Hotel.

The staff was friendly and professional. Room was clean. Price was reasonable. This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here. The general manager was very hospitable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in and around Florida.

This would not have been my choice of a hotel. I'm not a fan of outside doors. The staff were very nice, but the facility is VERY old and some things are updated an other things are not. The name is now Econo Lodge so it was difficult to find, drove past it twice.

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.
