We chose this location from the rating on the Choice Hotels website. We weren't disappointed, The facility is well maintained and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with direction to attractions and restaurants. The Breakfast menu has a good selection of items for all tastes with large portions on the omelet selections.

I booked this hotel from previous reviews. When we pulled up the outside was average. Check in was ok. When we started heading to our room, I started to get concerned. The middle grounds were the pool was, was messy. When we opened our door and there was a musty smell, I almost flipped. We turned on the air to...

My fiancee and I stayed here for a night before leaving on a cruise the following day. For the price it was pretty nice. Nothing fancy but the room was clean and comfortable and it was a convenient location.

We sailed on the Norwegian Epic, but needed an overnight to get ready. We were pleased with the Econolodge on Merritt Island. Sits back off the highway, has pleasant staff, and guests have a free breakfast off of a limited menu. There are plenty of restaurants in the area as well. The room was comfortable and the rate for good...

After a nine hour drive, the staff was courteous and quick to get us checked into our room. We found the room to be very clean. Queen beds were very comfortable, the refrigerator kept our waters cold and the tv entertained us while we snuggled. The bathroom was clean, however the caulking at the shower was falling apart. The towel...

I booked this hotel prior to a cruise from Port Canaveral, and I'm happy I did. The hotel is just minutes from the port and is close to many restaurants both national and local. It is also close to a CVS and a Publix supermarket for last minute items. Our ground floor king faced the courtyard and pool and we...

I don't think there is enough room here to say how happy we were with this location. Let me start with what some would consider a negative. This is an older location and does show a little age, a little dated. That being said it is a very clean property. The water pressure in the show was harder than most...

The front desk was friendly and professional. The staff member had good people skills and cared about me as a guest. The rooms are clean. May sure you ask for a room with a flat screen TV. The breakfast is limited but the coffee is good.

We stayed one night here pre-cruise, on a transfers and accommodation package. The motel could use an update - some of the AC units were leaking on the outside paths and shower curtains in the bathroom but for one night it was fine, especially its location. There are plenty of dining options around to suit any budget - why I...

Worst bed I ever slept in! The breakfast was terrible, stale toast! They requested a credit card even though I used a CLC card. Somebody there stole my card info and charged over a $1000 on my credit card. That's the only place I used it! DON'T USE YOUR CARD THERE!
