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.

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.

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