View Full Version : Best hotel with nice beach and free parking near port?
01-16-2011, 02:11 PM
When we cruise in October we'd like to spend 2 days at the beach before the cruise. I was wondering which hotel has the nicest/kid friendliest beach and has free parking and free transportation to the port? Free breakfast would be a bonus too!:goodvibes

Has anyone stayed at The International Palms Resort lately?

I would be interested to know the answer to this as well

We are also planning to fly into Orlando a week before the cruise and hope to take the girls to a great beach resort for a few days before boarding at Port Canaveral. I am in search of a great resort and am having difficulty finding one close by. I looked up the resort you asked about, and although it looks to be in a great area with a nice beach, the resort itself does not look all that great. You can check out the link to reviews if noone can answer your question here.
We will have a car, so we are considering on going to a resort in Vero Beach (Vero Beach Resort and spa) or one in Palm Coast (Hammock Beach resort).
I do hope someone can suggest something nice and close by though! I will b keeping my eye on this thread.

Free parking--Renaissance Inn, Country Inn and Suites, Quality Inn and Suites, Radisson.
Free shuttle--Radisson, CI&S, Quality Inn and Suites (I believe the Renaissance has a small fee for shuttle)
Free breakfast--Radisson includes breakfast only in specified packages, others above do have it.
If you drive a little farther down the road, there is beach access, but most of those hotels don't have cruise parking.
Of the ones listed above, the Radisson has the nicest pool, CI&S is my "overall" favorite due to price, breakfast, and free shuttle/parking (if you get this on Priceline, you can pay $20 for parking). Renaissance is also nice...and since you have a car, driver can always take the family to the port and only pay for shuttle for one person!
