Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Port Canaveral
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Cape Canaveral
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had a great time in Cape Canaveral but the hotel looks like it needs a little renovation.
The staff and facilities are great though. The kids especially loved the waffle maker at breakfast.
It is worth getting up early to watch the sunrise on Cocoa Beach too.

I am travel agent that booked a group going on a family reunion cruise out of Port Canaveral, FL on July 12,2012. This was the 2nd cruise group that I booked within a year, where I traveled with the group. April 2011, the group and I stayed at a hotel nearby and had several problems. This year I decided to have the group stay at the Country Inn & Suites, Cape Canaveral; we stayed the night before the cruise, Wednesday, July 11, 2012. From the minute we walked into the lobby, we were received very warmly by the Front Desk personnel AND the Sales Manager, Tina Gradilone. Although there had been months of pre-planning to prepare for our arrival, I found that all details were in order. All of our rooms were ready and were "extremely clean". We were able to use the "Breakfast Room" Wednesday evening, to have a short "Meet & Greet" meeting. Family members complimented on the cleanliness of the outdoor pool. Everyone was more than pleased with the complimentary FULL HOT BREAKFAST offered the next morning. I was very impressed with how organized they were with getting our group onto the shuttle for the ride to the cruise terminal. In summary, I was so impressed with the service and the cleanliness that I planned to have all the cruise groups that I book to stay at the Country Inn & Suites in Cape Canaveral. Thank you, Ms. Tina Gradilone and your staff for a job well done!

We stayed here for the night while traveling by motorcycle. Walking in the front lobby there was the wonderful smell of fresh baked cookies! That is a small perk, but it is very nice, especially after coming in off the road. I appreciate the small things, such as fresh-baked cookies, and fresh coffee kept on-hand all throughout the day, not just in the morning during breakfast.

We spent time around the pool area, very nice! They have a well kept nice sized pool, and hot tub. They also have a fenced in, "waterpark/play area", for small children. I thought that was a nice perk for families traveling with smaller kids.

the room we had was nice and clean, well kept, and in good repair. Actually the building appears to be pretty new.

During the morning, it appeared to be a bit chaotic. There was a lot of commotion with families trying to catch their shuttles to go to the cruise ships. But still, the staff seem to be functioning very well.

I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here several times as a pre-cruise stay. Now that you pay for parking as a package deal (used to be free) and you can't sign up for the shuttle until you checkin (used to sign up when booked) this hotel has become less of a value. The free breakfast is over crowded as are the shuttles. It no longer made sense to me to book this hotel because it was closest to the port and our Disney Cruise. Even with being a Club Carlson member.
I will say the room was nice and clean this time. Bathroom was nice size. Microwave and minifridge good.
Just looking for a little less chaos further down the road next time. We always go to Publix before the cruise anyway.

We stayed here overnight to catch the shuttle to our Royal Carribbean Cruise during Spring Break. This was a cost saving package and the service is very organized and secure. We had our doubts at first but our cars were safe and the transportation was on time and very comfortable. Due plan to stay here again during our next cruise and have recommended your services to other cruisers. Children also enjoyed the pool.

Room Tip: Stay here to rest from driving, prior to getting on cruise ship.

We stayed here before a Disney cruise with my family of 5. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The pool and pool area were kept in very good condition. They also have a rather large complimentary buffet breakfast compared to the other types if hotels I have stayed in for this category.
Included in the price is a complimentary shuttle to the cruise port. You can leave your car all week in their front parking lot while you are in the cruise. They also picke us up after the cruise was over.
