Marriott Residence Inn - Cape Canaveral

I have a few questions for those of you who have stayed at the MRI:

Are cabs readily available if we'd like to go to dinner? We have little kids & grandparents, so I can't see us crossing the main road or walking too terribly far.

Is there a market / liquor store nearby where we could stock up on beverages prior to the cruise?

How's the shuttle from the hotel to the ship? Easy & prompt?

Thanks so much!

We stayed there this past summer and again two summers ago. I really like this hotel. Not only was it clean, but the beds were amazing!!

I never used a cab for dinner, but we were told that the hotel would take us across the street if we wanted. We opted for room service during both stays. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced.

Not sure about a liquor store or market, but I'm sure you can google it.

Shuttle from the hotel to the ship was perfect!

Overall, we were very happy with this hotel and amenities. You shouldn't be disappointed.

There is an ABC liquor stores about 2 miles from the hotel....there is also a racetrack gas station very near there that may sell beer...not sure about other booze.

I am sure the front desk would call you a cab when you need one....the front desk staff is very nice.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and it is our favorite in the area. The rooms are great, nice pool area, very nice complimentary hot buffet breakfast in the am.

We stayed here for our last cruise and had a difficult time getting a cab. This wasn't the hotel's fault, there just weren't many cabs running. The cab finally showed up 30 minutes late and did not have a car seat/booster as promised. The taxi driver just shrugged his shoulders and drove off. We ended up walking a couple blocks to a local restaurant and had a great time.
