“Beats a traditional hotel room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

If you want an experience that is a cut above the traditional hotel room, I recommend this alternative. Our unit included a living room/kitchen complete with the opportunity to prepare a meal if desired. I particularly appreciated the various options of places to "hang out". There is plenty of inside space near the lobby for various single or group gatherings. My favorite were all the options outside. Whether you want to lounge by the pool, rock in a comfy chair in the shade, sit at one of two expansive outside sections with tables and chairs or sit around an open fire in the evening...there was something for everyone. A full hot and cold breakfast buffet complete with eggs and make your own waffles were popular. I was impressed by how friendly the staff were. The room was very clean and the bed was remarkably comfortable. My husband who is ALWAYS awake by around 6am was still sound asleep until almost 8am !!!

We (two couples) stayed at this Residence Inn in Cocoa Beach for 3 nights and enjoyed every aspect of this hotel! The staff were friendly and very helpful. We were on our way to visit Cape Canaveral and they provided written directions that were perfect. This is one of the nicest Marriott properties we have ever stayed in and would stay here again. The room was modern and very clean. This is not your typical Residence Inn. We felt like we were in a higher priced hotel. Nothing to complain about! Great attention to detail. A+.

Room Tip: We shared a two bedroom suite which was unique in that it had two separate bathrooms, one for each c...

We stayed here before boarding a Royal Caribbean cruise in April. It was easy to find and close to the port. The night before we drove to a restaurant near the port to eat dinner and later when to Burger King for milkshakes. The Burger King is conveniently located within the same parking lot. In the morning, they did have a nice breakfast that consisted of eggs, sausage, bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, etc..
We did not use their transportation to the cruise port since we rented a car and the rental company provided a shuttle to the port. Budget rental was located less than one minute driving to the hotel which made it easy to drop the car off.

The room itself was nice and clean. We had a one bedroom room and I had no complaints about anything within the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The room was clean, the staff was wonderful. We enjoy staying at this location. We stayed at this hotel pre and post cruise. We drive to Florida and find that this location is the perfect stop for us from NC even if we sail out of Ft. Lauderdale/Miami instead of Port Canaveral. We have stayed in this location several times and will continue to do so in the future. It is a nice relaxing environment and close to the Port Canaveral cruise terminals. We had a great room on the fourth floor facing the front and was able to see all the big cruise ships leave over the weekend. We will not hesitate to stay here in the future.

Room Tip: A fourth floor room facing the front will give a great view of the cruise ships leaving.

We stayed here the night before leaving on a Royal Carribean cruise from Port Canaveral. To give you an idea of how close this hotel is to the cruise port, in the morning we could see our ship from our parking space in the hotel parking lot. Drive time to the ship was under 5 minutes. So, proximity to the port is great. But this hotel is also a cut above the average Residence Inn, which is generally good to start with. The hotel was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. Breakfast included the typical cereal, baked goods, juice and coffee, but also featured some hot items, like eggs, waffles, bacon and sausage. The breakfast service was well staffed so the food on the buffet line stayed stocked, and the large dining area stayed clean. Our room was well laid out, clean, and roomy, for a very fair price. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We chose the 2 bedroom queen suite and it was perfect. Each bedroom had one bed and it's own bat...

Arrived much earlier than check-in but decided to stop and see if our room might be available. Our room was not available however when we indicated that we would take any room that was ready, they said OK and we were able to check-in (~11:30am). 1 BR unit was clean and comfortable...(only complaint is the bed sheets were a bit rough).

The fire-pit at night was a nice touch w/lots of outdoor tables nearby. Was a good place to hang out w/laptop rather than having to stay in room. Breakfast the next day was Residence Inn standards...which was fine.

We checked out early to head to the Kennedy Space Center. We were able to leave our luggage in a locked room behind the front desk. This was an awesome amenity which made our day much more relaxing since we didn't have to worry, or even think about, our stuff either from a theft or heat standpoint.

If in the area, we would highly recommend staying here.
