Oceanside Hotels
 
Which hotel would you recommend that is ON the beach? I'll have my kids in tow while my hubby sleeps off the 940 mile drive before our cruise. TIA!!

If you are sailling from Canaveral, I would stay at La Quinta Inn. Right on the beach, next to the pier., short walk to Publix grocery and restaurants. Good restaurants on the pier itself.

Forgot to say where.. I'll be going out of Canaveral. :)

I think Ron Johns is on the beach also about 10 minutes from the ship.

The Ron Jon Resort is not on the beach, except for a building that is somewhat close. You have a good walk, or can take the golf cart shuttle. It is the equivalent of a few blocks inland.

La Quinta Inn and Suites Oceanfront (be sure to book the oceanfront location...there are two La Quinta's in Cocoa Beach).

We are staying at the Doubletree Inn and I think it's on the beach.

Keep in mind the only rooms that are oceanfront at Ron Jon's can be rented for a minimum of a week only. If you are staying for a shorter period of time, you will be inland with no ocean view. There is a golf cart/shuttle that will take you to the ocean walkway though. It is definitely a fun resort. (Oh, do look at the posted pool hours on their website...that's another turnoff for some folks.)

We stayed at the Hilton Cocoa beach for the night before our cruise. It was nice, but nothing special. The beds were super comfy, though. And it was right on the beach. There was a bar/patio area out the back entrance and then little wooden bridge and then you were out on the sand. There wasn't a whole lot else there, but we were only there one night and we just wanted a room and access to the beach and that's what we got.
