“decent hotel in a bit remote location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We went to Kennedy space center and for this trip the hotel was well situated, with a short drive to the park. The hotel seems to be a typical place to stay before you go on a cruise tour from the nearby port. The first morning we had a good breakfast with very friendly service and a relaxed athmosphere. The second day the entire breakfast room was overcrowded, the buffet and tables an entire mess and no service available.
Rooms are ok, the kids separation in the family suite is ok, but it is not a separate room, as we initially expected.
would go again for an overnight stay, but in case you want to enjoy a bit more vacation feeling, i would try to find something more central

GWN Dragon Boat booked this hotel as a Host Hotel for our dragon boat teams. Now we know why.....very excellent hotel!!! Upon arrival we were greeted by two friendly staff members.. and yummy cookies :) The Lobby was very nice and spacious. Our room was very cleaned. We did have a chance to enjoy the Hot Tub...very nice :) Next morning my dragon boat team and other teams invaded the Breakfast/dining area. Plenty of seating area with delicious food. Location of the Hotel was super close to our race venue and few miles from Cocoa Beach. We will stay at this hotel again.....but we are bringing our own pillows cuz their pillows are the size of a sofa's deco pillow. Too small for us.

After reading all the reviews I thought I had made a good choice in picking this hotel...than again maybe not! I found the front desk personnel not overly professional at times. Seems to be a hit and miss. The hotel itself is dated. The rooms are alright except for the paper thin walls! House keeping failed to clean our room. Imagine our surprise after a long day out coming back to find absolutely nothing done! The laundry room is horribly hot and I found it odd that they never stocked any supplies in it! You had to go all the way down to the gift shop to purchase it! On the plus side it does have a very nice pool!

We stayed here having arrived at Orlando International and needed a night stay before setting of for Englewood. The staff were excellent and the room a good size, clean and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the hot buffet breakfast and the hotel is well situated for local eateries by the shore.
Will certainly stay there again next year.

We booked this hotel because we arrived at Orlando airport in the evening and wanted to go to the Kennedy Space Center early next morning. For this, the hotel was allright. It is fairly standard in rooms and overall design, staff is friendly and helpful. Only its location is truely basic. Situated at a large road, its surroundings consist of other hotels, gas stations and diners. At least it is not expensive.

We stayed here post cruise. We were off the ship by about 8:00 am and had our rental car shortly after. We figured we'd have to kill 4-5 hours before we could check into the hotel. I decided to drop in to see what time check in was and the nice young lady let us check in right away (around 9:00am). The hotel was very clean. The room was very comfortable - we had two queen beds, a nice big (newer) flat screen TV, and a mini fridge and microwave which both came in very handy. We were there early enough to catch the full breakfast (until 10:30 am on weekends). We left and spend a couple hours at the beach before returning and spending the rest of the day by the pool. The pool, hot tub, and pool deck were outstanding and much more than I expected at a Country Inn. There were plenty of tables (with umbrellas) and chairs on the pool deck. The pool was closed in on three sides by the building which made for a nice quiet and private area to relax. The location is excellent, depending on what you're looking for. It's extremely close to the cruise ship terminal(s), but not quite so close to the beach. I highly recommend this hotel.
