Terrible Attitude !
We had stayed here several times before so we went back about a week ago. I had also written a review of this place back in August 2003, and had raved about it.
I had booked the room over the Internet and had the confirmation stating all rooms had a fridge and a microwave. They gave us a room over the office -- no windows, no fridge or micro. It was horrible -- part of the room was being used for storage, no less!
We went back to the office where others were checking in. We were told if we didn't like it, we could check out. No "sorry, let's see what can do"... or anything. My husband was furious over the attitude and lack of customer service.
It was the worst experience we have ever had at Cocoa Beach -- and we have been staying out there at least a weekend every 5-6 weeks for the past 20 years. We went down to the LaQuinta and checked in -- almost the same rate, bigger and much nicer rooms, gorgeous pool, and helpful staff. We will never go back to the Luna Sea.
Luna Sea is basically nice, a good value
I was surprised to see a couple of really negative reviews of this hotel. We found it quite nice, with the only real negative being that our room was tiny. With 2 double beds supposedly accomodating 4 people, we could barely move around. But the pool was very nice, heated and nice furniture. We could walk next door to the 7-11 and across the street just aways to the beach. The continental breakfast was very nice - lots of items for that kind of thing, plus lovely seating in the lobby area to eat.
Quaint and friendly.
It was the name that caught my attention so we decided to stay one night and ended up staying on for a few days. The location was great, I walked to the beach everyday. The price was reasonable. The pool was heated and sparkling. The room was clean and the staff were friendly.
I would stay there again. Thank you for your hospitality.

We have stayed there 3 times & planning to go back! The first two times were great, but the last time was a bit disappointing, because I think they were switching ownership. I still thought it was ok. However, the pool was cold. We mentioned this to the staff and they said they would turn up the heater. Some of the other reviews put it down (it's not a place to go if you're planning to stay in your room your whole trip).
It's quiet, clean and pleasant. I have enjoyed it. Last year it didn't seem quite as friendly or organized. However, we are booking a room again this year. We are hoping things are back to normal. Another nice thing about this place is there is a 7-11 gas-staton next door which comes in which comes in handy. The breakfasts are good too (that way you don't have to hunt down the nearest Dunk'n Donuts). It is also centerly located. It's not a fancy place, but clean, charming, and comfortable. We'd recommend it!
Quiet, Nice Stay
We had a nice; comfortable stay; including swimming after dark with many people; with no rowdy's. Was good place to be with my teen daughter. Sorry the loud mouth's review in Oct. '03 wasn't good; I enjoyed it for the value.
Most horrible experience that my friends and I ever had. We travel a lot as a group and never had a problem.
The worst experience in our lives!!!
The accomodations were acceptable- is the only decent comment I can possibly say. The hotel front desk clerk/manager/owner made our stay at this establishment unbearable. If you are looking for a hotel to stay which allows fun, this is not the place to go. The management requires complete silence at the pool at 5pm, and has no tolerence for any gatherings of any social sort.

... going to be thorough and not going to rush myself like I did at the Smithsonian a few years back. I recently learned from my daughter Katie that I suffer from FOMO (Fear of missing out) and I don't want to miss a thing at KSC. Who knows when I will be back in these parts again?Sorry for the short write up, but nothing really happened today! Talk soon!
Up at 6.30. Shower and coffee brewed by Marie in the room. Down to reception by 7.50 for an 8.05 pickup. Bus arrived 8.30. We could have had breakfast. Payed driver $20, not sure what for. Pleasant trip out to Cape Canaveral. Not much scenery but informative commentary and videos about the space program.
Arrived at Kennedy Space Centre about 10. Driver gave us a plan of attack: Space Centre bus tour first then ...

We found a place to stay for $60 and guess what it's another 2 bedroom suite! At these prices it seems silly to camp. Sadly this $60 suite was nowhere close to the great place we had in Daytona, well i guess you can't win them all. To justify our splurge, we heated up some soup for lunch and headed to the beach. We wandered along the shore hand in hand like ...
... in which they simulate a shuttle take off. It was a very good ride. Unlike at Disney, we had the entire ride to ourselves.
We also took in two IMAX films, listened to a lecture by an astronaut, and took a tour out to the Vehicle Assembly Building and an entire exhibit dedicated to the Saturn V and Apollo program.
All of this took most of the day, ...
... as each section was making their final checks towards a successful lift off. As all was "good for go" the flight control gave the final orders to go ahead with the launch. We heard the blast off as those who were really there would have experienced it. But then the room started to shake, the windows behind us cast a red glow...they had even simulated the rocket launch and we felt like we were there! Awesome!.
Doors to our right now opened and we shuffled through into the ...
