Radisson Resort at the Port
Travel Blogs from Cape Canaveral
First we drove to Thousand Island Reserve and had a kayak tour with a guy called Tim. We saw some manatees. They pushed up against our kayak. They look a bit like a seal and an elephant mixed together but they have a nose like a pig. We also saw some types of birds. We also went through some mangrove tunnels.
When that finished we went swimming at the ...

We have hired a scooter to get about as parking is impossible. When parked, we have to return to Christine every 3 hours to pump more money into the meter. Even though she is in a parking lot, the maximum stay is 3 hours (apart from 6pm - 8am).

We saw Sandpipers, Great Blue Heron and my favorite, the Roseate Spoon Bill. Probably because pink is my favorite color.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Resort at the Port Cape Canaveral
Close and convenient for staying the night before a cruise leaving out of nearby Port Canaveral. Nice pool, decent room.
Mediocre and over priced
Stayed here in Oct. 04 pre cruise. The bathroom door wouldnt open once you were inside. The carpet was a little on the gross side and I thought the cruise parking lot was going to be lit at night but upon checking this out found it to be utterly dark all night long. Not very comforting knowing our car was going to be there for a week and parked WAY in the back 40 with no security that we could see. I will not be staying here again.
Stayed here for a wedding in November 2004. Reserved a regular room for $119/night expecting the same quality as other Radisson hotels in US and Europe. Must say, we were disappointed. The hotel is more like a "Days Inn" motel with a big pool. The room was clean but tired. When it was last "renovated", the work was shoty and not finished. The door would not stayed closed! The usual Radisson amenities including the oatmeal soap were provided, but the towels were small and scratchy. The hotel guests are mostly cruise passengers spending one night, so the hotel has a large turnover. We arrived at 12:30 pm and had to wait until 2:00 pm for our room. There were several bus loads of cruisers checking out. So, they are efficient in the room preparation.
Drive up Hotel
Have to say would not recommend the "Hotel". Stayed at the Radisson Hotel the night before a cruise. On the plus side the hotel staff was curtious and the shuttle to the pier was excellent.
On the minus side I was disappointed in that the Hotel is a refurbished drive up motel.
A Tropical Paradise
My husband & I stayed here for Valentine's Day weekend and we had a great time.....the rooms were beautifully decorated and spotless.....we had the king suite with the whirlpool tub (large enough for 2)......with a large shower in separate area with a seat built-in.....there was a wet bar, fridge, microwave at one end of living room and a dining table with 4 chairs......there was a sofa and a large chair, armoire containing a TV (another one in the bedroom), desk & chair and a coffee table. Room service was prompt and the food was very good. The pool is gorgeous, heated, surrounded by palm trees, some containing large parrots....very nice tropical setting!! We will certainly be going back here!
Great place to stay
We stayed the night before our cruise and left our car there. The shuttle delivered us, on time right to the terminal and was there to pick us up as soon as we debarked. The rooms were nice, the facilities looked great, although we didn't use any of them (arrived late). The breakfast (free for two) was good, but there is a McD's right across the street, if you want to eat cheaper.
We stayed here for one night before cruise in January 2004. It was handy for leaving car here during cruise, although we had to park in a real rough grassy field next to the hotel. We were a little concerned about the security of the car during our cruise but everything was fine when we returned. Getting around hotel was kind of a mess. Hallways are all chopped up and it's like a maze. Only half of the buildings have elevators so if you end up in one without an elevator, you have to either walk up steps with your luggage or ride the elevator in the next building and wind through a lot of narrow hallways to get to your room.
Good for one night prior to cruising...
This hotel was fine...nothing special, but the most convenient for a one night's stay prior to boarding a cruise ship. We had the suite which offered 2 king beds in the bedroom along with a corner whirlpool tub(in the bedroom, not closed off) as well as a sleeper sofa in the kitchen/living area. The bathroom was very nice with great ammenities.
The property isn't particularly fancy or updated, but again, convenient. You can also leave your car there during your cruise at no charge and use their shuttle to and from the ship. I wouldn't think it was a place to stay for more than one night....there just isn't anything in that area. There are independant restaraunts on each side of the hotel, and a McDonalds across the street. It is not near the beach.
A Good Choice for the Night Before a Cruise
We spent the night before our Disney Wonder cruise at the Radisson. We arrived late, and were checked in quickly and on or way. We reserved a 2 king bed suite, but they were all out of them when we checked in. We had to settle for a suite with only 1 king bed, but had no other choice. So, one person ended up on the floor (how they expect 5 to stay in a room with bedding for 4 is beyond me). The suite was okay, a little dirty and worn. However, we loved having the large jacuzzi.
We'll probably return to the Radisson for the night before our next cruise, but wouldn't make a trip down to just stay there.
Other than arriving too late to really enjoy this property, we loved this hotel! Great view, pool and Avis site! Our suite was great, wish we had more time here to enjoy it.
