DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront
Travel Blogs from Cocoa Beach
DH has to be one of the great Pen Pals out there. She will put a good deal of effort into maintaining contact with just about everyone she befriends along the way. This pays dividends as we travel given that we never seem to be too far away from interesting friends and acquaintances and it's always been great to catch up on the various life …
I been at Cocoa Beach for a couple of days now. The area is ok albeit a tad tacky. On arrival we spent some time in the funky "Sand Bar". That night we met up with another American colleague (Jeff) and had a beer. We then stayed up sipping Red Wine and probably had a little too much for a school night. In the morning I made the decision to have a …
With the working week is over we headed down to Orlando to check out the outlets. It was all a bit rushed but I managed to get a few things. Then it was back up to Cocoa Beach, packed my bag and out for a quiet last night for a meal at Gregory's Steak and Seafood Restaurant. I had the Mahi Mahi which was pretty good. We leave for the Airport at …
... centre, which focussed on the history of space travel. Much of the early commentary looked at the race between the Americans and the Russians for space travel domination. Personal highlight for me was the robot from Lost in Space, one of my fave childhood shows. The interesting thing about this place is they use originals of everything - spacesuits, rockets, etc. We moved on to the IMax cinema and watched ...
On the plane ride to Orlando, I had another Sprite and a packet of Delta cookies... delicious! I slept for most of the flight but the rest of the time I was doing some education. Our dad was on the flight with us, but he was so far up and we were in the very last row. He came back to say hello twice but that was it. A couple troops from the American military were sitting next to us and they gave us a box of girl scout ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cocoa Beach Oceanfront
We booked a one night stay (2-21-04) at the Doubletree, to coincide with the ending of a three day cruise, to stay in the area for one extra night, and to celebrate our anniversary. We had been in the Cocoa Beach area before, but hadn't stayed overnight, and thus we did extensive researching of various hotels prior to booking. After looking at the various booking services, (Expedia, Priceline ect.) we decided to book directly with the hotel, to know exactly what we were getting. We decided to splurge, and booked a full ocean front view room, on the execututive level, which included a happy hour in the evening, and a continental breakfast in the morning, the room rate was a steep $244.00.
Great room, great service, smoky smelling rooms
The place just reopened after being seriously damaged during the hurricanes and the place looks great since being almost completely rebuilt. The room itself was very comfortable and the service was great. The only problem we had was that the venting of smoke was somehow entering through our bathroom and made the whole room smell of smoke (even though we were in a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor). I couldn't sleep since I'm asthmatic and left feeling worse than when I entered the place. The management was responsive and gave me one night free as a result. Hopefully they fix the problem with the air exchange. Otherwise it's a wonderful hotel with a very nice restaurant and bar. The staff there is excellent. Great location by the beach.
Was quite satisfied
Wanted to spend 4 days at the beach before heading over to universal orlando in the June heat. The room was fine, no odors, nice balcony, ocean veiw, fridge and micro. Pool area was small with lots of lounge chairs. A public's grocery store right across the street. The ocean was warm and clean beach area with lots of shells. We bought floats at the dollar store and bobbed up and down in the ocean for hours. Room service was fast but pricey. Would return here again.
Just spent three nights over July 4 at the Doubletree in Cocoa Beach. Unlike most Cocoa Beach hotels, this one is right on the beach! We had an oceanfront room, king side bed, two easy chairs, a table, a refrigerator, microwave, and a balcony with a great view of pool area (beautiful) and ocean. The hotel is in a quiet, good area with timeshares and condos around it. The beach is wonderful here with mostly families, babies. A great place to go for a few days on the beach. The pool is small but beautifully landscaped with more than enough chairs to accommodate everyone. There are also umbrellas adjacent to many of the chairs which is nice in midday sun. There is a grocery right across the street, and numerous restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive. The bathroom is small, only one sink in ours, but the room is large and there is no extra charge for the frig or microwave. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, even when we checked in at 3:00 a. m. after driving in from the Pepsi 400 in Daytona! There is a small sundries shop, a restaurant, and conference facilities. Don't eat in the hotel's restaurant if you have time to drive a short distance...there are wonderful local restaurants that made the hotel food seem pretty bad in comparison. The only minus for us was the small bathroom. All in all, the Doubletree is not "plush" but it's very, very nice, quiet, right on the beach, and for us on a holiday weekend, $184 night for oceanfront was a good deal for this hotel. Beware: the Hilton on down the beach does NOT have balconies, so you can't sit outside your room and enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean like you can at this Doubletree. If you like the sound of crashing waves and breathing in salty smells, stay here, not the Hilton!
What a surprise! I thought, based on reviews, this would be a great experience but that was certainly NOT the case. When we arrived to our room we immediately noticed a slight smell and thought it might just be a cleaner or something and might go away, so we just ignored it.We then noticed a large brown smearing of something on the bedskirt and the floor so on our way out we told the front desk and they said they would take care of it. When we returned in the evening, we noticed the smell was much worse and was probably a sewage smell. The large brown smear was still on the bedskirt, so we asked them again to change it and went out again. When we returned it still was not changed.After a third try , I went down and personally waited for the housekeeper and we went up together! She acted like she just had run a marathon.She said there were no more bedskirts but eventually went to actually look and she found one.. Unfortunately the big brown stain on the carpet couldn't be changed. Over the next few days, the smell got worse, it was awful. We were too tired to change rooms. Upon complaining to the hotel after the trip, they said there had never been a similiar complaint and didn't even offer us ANY compensation. Also, they seemed from the very start to not give a damn about us when they saw we booked our reservations through priceline, so keep that in mind.I would not recommend this hotel to anyone ever!
We stayed here two nights on a visit to the Kennedy Space Center. Chose to splurge on an oceanfront room (one of the few), and was glad we did -- nothing like lying in bed looking out at the ocean! Hotel is far back from the highway, as close to the beach as it could be. Very attractive and spacious restaurant & lounge, and the one lunch we had there was excellent. Pool area is not large, but it's nicely laid out with lots of lounge chairs. Staff was very friendly, from the front desk to the waitress who got me a special order to the housekeeper. Room was a bit above average in size and furnishings, including fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Specious desk and professional office chair made desk work a pleasure. Didn't get to use the fitness room, but it looked well equipped. A few negatives: Our room showed more wear and tear than I would expect in a fairly expensive hotel -- gouged wallpaper, broken latch on balcony door, and a counter that needed refinishing. As another reviewer noted, the pool area appeared to be unstaffed. And those cheapo plastic chairs on the tiny balcony -- all wrong for this class hotel.
Great Location and ver nice hotel
My family and I just returned from the Cocoa Beach area and we found this hotel to be just great! The rooms were very clean with nice amenities. The location is wonderful. We walked every day on the beach.
The location in the town is good and there are alot of restaurants within walking and driving distance. Good deal!!!
I paid $59 for one room at Hotwire.com for one night in early Jan. The price is not really fantastic but it's not too bad either. This hotel has only a small number of rooms that has full ocean view; the rest of the room has partial view. But don't bother to upgrade ($30 extra) because if you can be on at least the 4th floor, the view is just as good. All of the rooms have balcony unlike the Hilton a few blocs down.
Loved the Double Tree
A friend and I spent 5 days at the Double Tree in Cocoa Beach. The hotel is located on a lovely stretch of the beach. It is favored by many folks that come to the area professional to do something with Cape Kennedy. We got to see a night time launch from the beach. It was wonderful. The hotel is intimate without being overwhelming. It is small but very well maintained. We had a great time and I would highly recommend it. Get a room on the South side for the best view.
Took a long weekend (Aug. 21-24) at the Doubletree Oceanfront Cocoa Beach. It was our first time in this part of Florida, and we just wanted a weekend to lay by the ocean and do nothing. We popped in and out of a few other hotels during the weekend there, and were very glad we chose this one. It had a much nicer pool area than the others (especially the Hilton!), and the hotel lobby/ambiance was the best.
