    Just a FYI that I was able to book this for $60 for our pre-cruise night (Feb 3). I called the hotel directly and asked if I can still park our car (rental) there during our cruise and was told that I can purchase a cruise package for $20 which will include parking and the round trip shuttle.

    Hi Tikibird, FYI, when checking in. ask for the 4th floor, room numbers 400- 420[even # rms],you will be facing the port and will be able to see the ships coming in the morning of your cruise. Oh yes!, they have a real nice breakfast bar also. HAPPY SAILING!

    When you were on Priceline did you put in a certain area? Thanks

    I too booked it today for our precruise night (feb 17th) on Priceline. Ours will be $62 with taxes. I bid $49, 2 1/2 stars, Cape Canaveral only.
    I wish I had booked my car yesterday, when it was $52, one way, but I wanted to get the hotel first. The car price has doubled for one day since yesterday. May take a shuttle instead.

    I bid on Cape Canaveral, FL and 2.5 stars. Originally bid $47 and then got back an offer to rebid at $60, so I did since I saw that some others had gotten this property with a similar bid on betterbidding.com and biddingfortravel.com

    I decided on my price when I saw it on Cruise critic today. Someone had bid $48 and rebid $49 and got it, so I just tried the $49 right off the bat. Was surprised I got it the first try. Keep in mind the bid prices are without tax. My $49 ends up being $62...a bargain even at that price. Finally got the one way car cheaper...I hope the codes I'm using are ok ones for the car.

    Just a heads up that it is possible you get a different property with Priceline and you have to stick with what you get (no refunds) - although the property would have to be in the CC area if that is what you bid on. Good luck!

    I knew there was a chance when I bid (and didn't care, but was hoping for this one and the free breakfast and wifi..at least I think I saw it was free), but I wonder if 2 1/2 stars leads just to just the one place. Do you know if there is another 2 1/2 star place in Cape Canaveral on the list for Priceline?

    Thanks so much for this post. Was wanting to stay there and could find nothing any cheaper than $118. Did Priceline for 1/30 and got it for $49 plus tax. There is only (1) 2.5 star hotel listed in Cape Canaveral.

    Wow!!! What a bargain. I just booked it. It was $169 through the hotel and we got it for the $49 + tax. Going to call the hotel and add the parking and shuttle option.

    Thank you so much! What a great tip. :worship:

    When Priceline offers you a room at a particular rate, you can usually get it for less. However, if you were out of "free rebids" - then your choice would be to accept it at the offered rate, or wait a day to try again.

    I was getting ready to post the same thing. I am usually successful going up about 1/3 of the way to their offer with a free rebid. If I don't have any, I will wait a day. If it is a bid for the day of or day before the stay and no rebids, then taking their offer is about the only choice.

    Just did this dealy and got TWO rooms for less than the price we were paying for one. (We were all going to cram into one room just to save cash.) But, I just got two rooms for $49 each + tax. SO, doing the happy dance!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks to all that posted this! You rock.
