          Excellent Property


          We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for 1 night before our Carnival Cruise out of Port Canaveral. The hotel is gorgeous and brand new. Everything is very fresh and clean. Check-in was very efficient and friendly. Our group had 5 rooms booked on this night, 4 2 bedrooms and 1 single bedroom. Upon check-in 2 in our party were informed that the hotel had overbooked the 2 bedroom suites, but they were given 2 seperate 1 bedroom suites at the price on their confirmation. This may have worked out even better for these folks as they had 4 and 6 people booked into the room so they ended up with more space.

          We did get the 2 bedroom suite and it was a wonderful room, very large with 2 seperate King Bedrooms each with their own bathroom and TV. The living area had a sofabed, TV, kitchen with all amenties. I really wished we could have stayed more than one night!

          The breakfast in the morning was very plentiful including eggs, sausage, waffles, hashbrowns, cereals, yogurt, fruit, juices and more. Very generous for a free breakfast in my opinion. A large seating area as well with tables outside on the patio.

          If you continue down the street there are lots of stores and services including grocery, liquor, gas and all of the major rental car companies. We rented with Budget and my husband dropped us with the luggage at the pier and returned the car, they provided a free shuttle for him back to the pier. The whole process took only 30-45minutes.

          I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to cruisers out of Port Canaveral.

          Loved the residence inn


          We stayed at the Residence Inn after a cruise from Port Canaveral and I can't say enough good things about it. It is a wonderful facility with awesome pool. It is decorated attractively and the employees treat you like you are their friend. The rooms are so big we felt lost after the cruise ship accommodations! I would recommend it for a family because it is so roomy. The breakfast is also very good. You can't go wrong staying here!!

          Unbelievably Great Experience


          Brand new hotel with excellent service. I've stayed at several Marriott Residence Inns and have always been very satisfied.

          It's like renting a condo instead of a hotel room. The room had every possible ammenity, including a full kitchen. The services such as making a grocery list are so convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed the happy hour and the breakfast. The offered FREE parking while we went on our cruise; a savings of $50.00 for us.

          I highly recommend this hotel to anyone cruising out of Port Canaveral. Good restaurants and shopping nearby.

          Loved it - Brand New and Superb Staff!


          This is a wonderful hotel. Everything is new, the place is spotless and the staff are above average. Couldn't have been more helpful - gave us extra pool towels, let us have a late check out etc. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the hot foods were actually hot! They could have used one more toaster but we find this to be a problem everywhere! We had a two bedroom suite, it was wonderful, with two bathrooms, tons of room and all new appliances. They offer to do your grocery shopping for you and anything you need, they couldn't be more accommodating. We will definitely return here if we are back in the Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral area. Really excellent service and right across from Port Canaveral so handy for cruise travelers.

          Great New Hotel


          We stayed at the Residence Inn at Port Canaveral before our Disney Cruise in August. I was lucky to get a rate online from the hotel website before the hotel opened up. We had a one bedroom suite, which had a king size bed and a pull out sofa bed.

          The staff couldn't be more friendly when we checked in. The hotel still smells of "paint" and just had that newness to it. Everything was decorated nicely and in good working order.

          Upon opening our room, I was surprise at how big it was (I was expecting smaller). It had a full kitchen (stove, fridge, microwave, plates, cups, silverware, dish detergent) with a little table, a desk, a sitting area with a large TV, and a great bedroom with lots of storage space. The bathroom was nice as well, and we enjoyed having the double vanity outside of the actual bathroom. The kitchen amenities came in handy since we got Chinese take out and didn't get any plates or utensils from the restaurant. There was also free high speed internet access in the room.

          Breakfast was complete with eggs, waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and certainly a great value. One of the better "included" breakfasts we have experienced.

          There was also a computer in the main seating area so you could check your email from home (which I did) and they had a printed hooked up as well. There was also a large screen TV, and a sofa and chairs.

          We didn't check out the pool, since we had arrived late after a day at KSC, and left early to get onto the cruise. The front desk staff said they do run a shuttle to the Port for $3 per person (and you could leave your car free of charge at the hotel) but it didn't start until 11. We wanted to be at the terminal before that.

          I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It was well worth the money and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

          Loved it! Great room for a great price!


          We stayed at the Residence Inn one night pre-cruise. Check in was easy and efficient.

          We had a one bedroom suite that included a kitchen, living area, separate bedroom w/ two queen beds, and one bathroom. Everything was super clean and new. The bedding was great, pillows were very comfy. The granite counters are a nice touch. We didn't use it, but the kitchen was fully stocked and had a full size fridge.

          The breakfast was nice and included hot foods (sausage/eggs/homeade waffles) along w/ all the continental fare like muffins, bagles, yogurt, cereals, fruit, etc. The only negative is that they ran out of silverware and we had to hunt some down. The staff taking care of breakfast were busting their butts to keep things stocked. It just seemed that they needed an extra person to help out. But, we all got full, so no complaints here.

          The property is located very close to the pier, and was very quiet. We heard no outside noises at all.

          This visit has made Residence Inn my favorite hotel and I hope to return again someday. Keep up the good work!

          Mgt./staff shine here


          Echo great experience of previous reviews.

          Breakfast first rate. Housekeeping staff responded within the hour even though the hotel was completely booked and they were extremely busy. Obviously well managed property. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

          Brand New Hotel..........Wow


          This is a brand new Residence Inn and my family and I truly enjoyed it. The rooms were stylish, the service immaculate the location ideal, and the pool great. The front desk staff are fantastic, the dinning staff are polite and pleasant, and even the grounds people are caring. I recommend this hotel strongly and thank the Marriott for bringing this to the Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach Area.

          Very Nice new hotel


          We booked a stay here at the Residence because of the location. We wanted to be closer to Universal but when we researched the hotels we found the prices to be nuts for what you got and the rooms were often used hard. So we decided to look about 45 min east of the Orlando parks to find a nice place and we'd have access to the beach too. This hotel is new. it just opened in april or may of 2006. It is located very close to Port Caneveral. So if you are a cruiser leaving from that port this hotel is an excellent location for you. Several lines use this as a port. You can walk to food from here and the beach too. There is a nice park not far away where you can view Manatees. There is also a mini golf course and go karts within a block or so. There is a grocery store down the street. You'd need a car. The hotel though has a little store in it and there is a mini mart right next door. If you need heavy groceries you can drop a list off at the front desk and they will do the shopping for you and put it in your room and bill the charges to your room. That is an added bonus if you are there on business.

          The hotel is very bright and clean. The rooms were very large. 2 tvs (if you care about tv). The rooms were brightly decorated but very tasteful. We had a king bed and a pull out queen sofa bed in our room along with a full kitchen with dishwasher and microwave. There was a door to close out our kids which was nice after spending a week in a small cabin on a cruise ship. We had a nice view of the large pool and hot tub area. (towels provided). There was wired internet access in the room.

          A hot breakfast was provided. you could make your own waffle. there were eggs and sausage. coffee, juice. All neatly presented. If you are here during the week they have heavy appetizers for dinner. We where there on the weekend and they still had the breakfast going but not the appetizers. We were very happy that the space shuttle was going to be launched and we would have an excellent view. Too bad it was scrubbed for the time we were there. The folks at the hotel told us we'd be able to see and feel the launch from there. I guess we are going to have to go back! From this hotel we made it back to PA in 17 hours. I guess it is important to mention that they have free parking at this hotel as many charge a fee now a days.

          Great Pre-Cruise Stay


          My entire family and I stayed here prior to our cruise June 16-17 th,2006. We reserved two of the two bedroom suites, which are very spacious- could accomodate six adults easily. We did the stay, park and ride deal. A decent hot breakfast bar is included with the room (sausage, eggs, the works). As the hotel, does not have their own shuttle going to the port, they use Cocoa Beach Shuttle Company-service was great and the shuttle arrived on time, took care of bags and got us to the port. When checking in, reserve your shuttle time(11AM,11:30, or 12 noon).

          The ROOMS

          The floor plan was as described 2 separate bedrooms and a separate common area- full kitchen, small eat-in area .The rooms are well-decorated, a tropical theme as is the rest of the hotel. The beds are extremely comfortable. There is a large closet dressing area leading to the bathroom with typical furnishings: one noteworthy feature- is the curved shower bar . There are three t'vs- one in every room. The ceilings are at least 9 feet. Everything was clean and looked new. It was fairly obvious that it was a new hotel (opened in April- I think) Parking was not a problem and is free.


          The pool/ jacuzzi area was great. The pool was clean and large enough to enjoy without invading anyone's space. For a Friday night it was fairly quiet- I enjoyed relaxing out there. For as close as it is to the main drag, I could not hear traffic.

          There is a large patio area outside with tables and chairs. ( I loved the rocking chairs- nice added touch).

          There is a nice lobby/dining area with ample seating for lounging around. There is a business center with free internet access and access in the rooms. There was never a long wait to use the computer.

          Also, there is an outdoor basketball area ( the kids enjoyed it) and a small workout room.

          The Location

          This hotel is not on the beach but very close to Cocoa Beach (we spent the afternoon there). It may be a 3 minute drive to everthing: the beach, the ports, the interstate. It is very conveniently located. It is in a "hotel zone"- hotels to the left and right and what appears to be condo buildings behind it. There is new construction behind it: I am assuming because it was Friday- we did not hear anything- so be aware that a week day /night stay may be different as far as noise from construction. So in all, don't look for much of a veiw, but its close enough to everything.

          The Staff

          Service was great. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. Staff went out of the way to help us with anything we asked, and were great about giving us directions to everything.


          We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

Between the two slices is a lot of bananas, some mushed up some whole pieces. After breakfast we headed to Port Canaveral and were on the ship around noon. We had a little lunch buffet when we boarded. We toured the ship and played a couple games ...
