... famous by one of Allan’s favourite sitcoms as a child. I Dream of Jeannie. The series ran from 1965 to 1979 starring Barbara Eden as a 2000 year old genie and Larry Hagman as an astronaut The series was set in and around Cape Kennedy, Florida, with Tony Nelson and Jeannie living in nearby Cocoa Beach. (The show was actually filmed in California). ...
... the room of the second stop, we saw a short film about the first manned mission to the moon. Then we went into a room that had the original equipment for the Apollo 8 flight to the moon. It was the first successful manned moon flight that orbited the moon. Nobody stepped onto the moon in that mission. In another room we saw an Atlas 5 rocket which was GIGANTIC! We also got to touch a piece of real moon rock. It was ...
... here we entered the building into a large theatre. With no seats and only standing room, we stood and gazed at the movie screens above us that documented what was happening in the world at the time of the Apollo missions and how it was that President Kennedy announced the plan to be the first people to put a man on the moon.
Doors below the screens opened as the movie ended and we shuttled in single rows to sit in a replicated launch control room. Area by area was voiced and ...

We saw an unmanned rocket launch from Cape Canaveral! That was awesome...we went early enough to find a spot on Jetty Park in the town of Cape Canaveral.....you can see some of the space launch sites from this park. We parked our chairs out out ...
... to create activities at the last minute to keep the people happy. They've added extra shows including one that will be performed on the Disney Magic when it goes to the Mediterranean this summer. However it's geared toward the adults and older children, so we'll probably skip it. I'm sure a few more trips to the arcade are in store for us as well as an hour or two in the Oceaneers Club for Nathan. I still need more time relaxing...isn't that what I wanted out of this cruise?? ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Cocoa Beach
We needed a little weekend get-away after being very tired of the cold Chicago spring! Could only find good airfare to Orlando, but did not want to do a "Disney thing". The drive to Cocoa Beach from the Orlando airport is a snap! The Inn is lovely and the employees/owners make up for any slight disappointments one might have in the property. Their pleasantry and kindness is amazing...the homemade breakfast muffins and breads are outstanding. Great O.J., too! Even the coffee is great! Lots of magazines and daily papers out in the lobby, breakfast room and in the rooms. As for the rooms, very clean and nice linens. Baths do not have any extras like shampoo or hair dryers. No little frigs either. We stayed in a deluxe room with king bed...so big that the space is almost a waste. The TV is so far from the bed it's hard to see. We never had to use the Air-conditioning as the weather was perfect. The a/c unit is on the balcony, and I can see why it has the potential to be noisy. The pool area is very nice, and quite pristine. The chairs are tied down, so don't try to move them as the sun moves around! Other reviewers have mentioned the fact that the Inn calls itself "oceanside", and it certainly is on the ocean, but it does have a small parking lot between itself and the beach. The parking lot seems to be a public lot for beach-goers, but we did not have any noise problems with it. It is rather deceptive to see the picture of the hotel on their website which shields or hides the lot, but it really wasn't a big deal for us. We loved the dogs and parrots in the lobby areas...obviously the owner is a great animal lover. Owners seem to live on the premises, and this certainly correlates with the pristine condition of the property and the incredible hospitality of the entire staff. Hotel is in a great location for walking to shops. We would stay here again.
A Great Vacation at the Inn.
I was recently in Florida with my special lady visiting DisneyWorld followed up by a couple of days at the beach. I had booked us a room at the Inn, and let me just say, we had a wonderful time. My special lady sounded like a dolphin with all her squeeling! She liked it to say the least. The staff was friendly and knowledgable of the area, giving us great ideas of things to do. Unfortunately we had to leave, but with every beautiful sunrise, there is a sunset. My only complaint is that they couldn't make it a few degrees hotter outside, but I think the weather is a little out of their control. Next time I'm in Cocoa Beach I'll definately be staying at the Inn...and bringing more sunscreen!
I would just like to say what a wonderful time we had at the Inn. The service was excellent. The entire staff could not have been more pleasant and attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very warm and homey-feeling. We will definitely be back!!
Quite a friendly little spot,
During my visit at The Inn Iwas made to feel like I was the sole guest! I was shown all the hospitality a person could ask for, from the loveable pups, to the VERY funny Jerry, who I think is a very sweet person, who made me feel so welcome! All I needed was to "ask" for anything, and there was someone there too give me all the details or directions I required, I would highly recommend a stay at "The Inn" with it`s cozy rooms and love of the little guys, (the pups) There was always a smiling face to greet me, (at any time of the day!) I`m looking forward to my next stay in October! I`ll definitely be a repeat customer at the Inn!
Compliments to the Management of the Inn at Cocoa Beach
I very much needed a get-a-way. The Inn at Cocoa Beach was perfect. I really appreaciate that the property is not one of the large resorts with too much going on and too many people. A person is not just a face among the many there. Yet, this property offered all of the amenities of a much larger property. Everything was tastefully done, the service was excellent, the property was well maintained, and I'm so grateful for the friendly atmosphere. I travel alone a great deal so feeling taken care of and comfortable is important to me. The location is wonderful and I can't say enough for the help I received booking things to do in the area. I would highly recommend this property.
We had a suite with a balcony during the Christmas season and it was just wonderful. Standing out on the balcony at night during an exquisite lightening storm while the wind was warm was incredible. We actually left the balcony doors open and watched the whole show with the lights off and the sheer curtains blowing into the room. I would give anything to experience that again. They had a great brunch which had a nice variety and I loved the fact that I could take it back to our room. It was really very convenient to be able to walk out to the beach after passing through their cute pool area. Everything was very accessible. There was so much to do within walking distance of the inn. We did a lot of walking and shopping and had a fabulous time. We will definitely stay at the inn again. The Inn At Cocoa Beach is very quaint and homey without lacking any of the luxuries. A true home away from home.
Fair Place to Stay
My wife and I checked in around March 2004 and found this place to be your average B&B.
The service was pleasant when we checked in and the staff was willing to assist us with any needs
We stayed in a delux room. This means you are facing the beach and have a nice breeze coming into your room. The rooms have a touch of charm with their decor, homey but a little out dated.
Breakfast was casual, basically self-service. The menu is limited, hard boiled eggs, fruits and assorted types of bread.
The website gives an illusion the hotel is on the beach, this is incorrect. There is a large parking lot that divides the beach and hotel. Not a big deal but for $250+ a night I expected better.
This year in late August I wanted to stay five days at the Inn while visiting the Kennedy Space Center.
Our visit in May, 2004 was our second visit to the Inn and it was just as pleasant as the first. I'm so glad we came back. Some renovations had been made to upgrade the facility, but all the charm and appeal remained. The brunch is still absolutely wonderful! And the room where it's served is among my favorite spots. I also have to rave about the people who run the Inn. They are so upbeat and positive and fun to be around. We also love the lobby dogs...so cute and friendly. I understand that rooms are going to be updated. I have no complaints about the rooms we stayed in, but I'm sure the new furnishings will be as tasteful and unique as they are now. I also like the location of the Inn...it's a great morning walk along the beach to the pier. Also, it's easy to walk to all kinds of stores & restaurants, but when you're at the Inn, you think you are the only ones on the beach. The Inn was recommended to us by friends, and I'm so glad we took their advice.
Getaway From this Getaway I had recently read and article on MSN about the top 10 adult getaways and it included the Inn at Cocoa Beach. I had booked a Disney Cruise and was looking for a place to stay nearby for a few days after. Boy was I wrong to stray off the beaten path. When I booked the room I informed them I would be coming off a cruise, and the person I spoke with at the Inn told me I would have to arrange my own transportation to the hotel with a local shuttle service, however on thier site the advertise shuttle service to and from the cruise ships.
