We arrived on Saturday and stayed just one night before our cruise left on Sunday. Hotel provides a free shuttle from the airport, just call the hotel when you get your luggage and they will send the shuttle to get you. The hotel can arrange a shuttle to the cruise port for $10/person, but it is provided by an off-facility service. I inquired about the cruise port shuttle at check-in and was told the first available shuttle would be at 12:30 pm. I really wanted to be at the port a little earlier so we decided to arrange a taxi.
The hotel is just a short walk to shopping so after check-in we walked to BJ's warehouse store to purchase our 2-bottle wine allotment for the cruise. You do not have to be a member to purchase liquor at this store.
The hotel room was clean and comfortable, air conditioning worked just fine. Breakfast was provided and was just okay. The scrambled eggs were a bit salty for my taste and the oatmeal was very good.
As we were waiting for our taxi to the cruise port in the morning, one of the shuttles showed up and had room, so we cancelled the cab and jumped on that 10:30 am shuttle for $10/person (cash, paid to the shuttle driver).
This is a convenient location near the airport at a reasonable price so I would stay there again if it was just a quick overnight stay. If I was staying longer than one night, I would probably prefer a hotel closer to the beach.
