    The hotel offered the parking and shuttle for a total of $22.20 (including tax) for up to 6 people. This is definitely a steal! I asked for the 4th floor Port view. I got 4th floor, no port view rooms available as of now, but will try again.

    I just bid $49.99 for our Oct 29th date. It was not accepted. I was offered a free rebid if I put in a minimum bid of $13.00 more. Since I've plenty of time before our travel dates, I'll wait and retry in a few days. Thanks for letting us know about this though, it sounds like a great Hotel and the location is perfect, along with the cruise package deal for just $20 more!

    I did it too!!! We should meet up before leaving for the cruise. Maybe for breakfast or something. We are arriving really late on Friday.

    I think she meant has anyone gotten another hotel? It sounds like Country Inn & Suites is the only 2.5 hotel in the area that is on Priceline. Or at least they are the lowest bidder right now for all the dates that people have submitted. That could change.

    It's also interesting to note that all the dates posted here have been in Jan-Feb or next Oct (unless I missed something). I think those are probably non-peak times, and summer bids might not be accepted so low, or they may be accepted by other hotels. Just a thought.

    Then again, I looked at Hotwire.com (similar site to Priceline, except they make offers for a type of hotel that you can either accept or not - probably lower prices are generally available on Priceline), and a 2.5 star hotel was available on a friday night for each month between Feb and Nov 2010 for $63. The only exception was Sep which was $62. Not sure if Hotwire uses the same hotels as Priceline, though.

    I don't know if it's off peak or not. I had trouble getting a deal on a car and was told because it was Presidents week (our school up north is off all week), it was considered a high time. I did eventually get a car at an OK price from MCO to Cape Canaveral.

    I called to see if I could reserve a 4th floor port side room and was told that I would be assigned a regular priceline room, which was two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with bunks), two TV's, pull out sofa, micro, etc. with a river view. She said if they needed a larger room, I would most likely be moved, but that that seldom happens. At check in, she said I could ask for a 4th floor portside, but for now, they were full.

    I'm doing the happy dance!!! Just got it for $62.10 with tax for our 1/16 Magic cruise!

    Thank you for posting this....I originally had this hotel reserved for $130 a night!!! We stayed there in October before our cruise and it is beautiful! Very nice breakfast and very nice shuttle driver to the port. He even picked us up earlier at the port because we got off the ship first, gave him a call and told him we were there and he was there in less than 2 minutes!

    I highly recommend this hotel!

    Thanks again! :dance3:

    Just in case someone was considering using Hotwire.com to try to get a hotel it's important to note that Hotwire's Cape Canaveral area extends much farther south than does Priceline's. And according to betterbidding.com, Hotwire rates CI&S as a 3-star along with a list of others: Doubletree, Hilton, Holiday Inn Oceanfront, La Quinta Cocoa Beach, La Quinta Inn and Suites. The following are listed as 2.5-star: Best Western Oceanfront, Days Inn. (These lists aren't exhaustive, but are what posters have actually been assigned in that area.) Most of these hotels probably aren't within Priceline's Cape Canaveral area, but with Hotwire, there are more options and so less chance that you will get any one particular hotel.

    I just reserved a room at the Marriott Orlando Airport - (3.5 stars according to priceline) for $40 + taxes/fees - total was around $52. They have a free shuttle from the airport & then we will take Disney's cruise transportation the next day.

    We have a rental car from MCO to Cape Canaveral for $52 for 24 hours..but might forego the trouble of it and use this shuttle service, for $50 for two plus tip: http://www.travelynx.net/shuttle.html, from MCO to our hotel. Are there places within walking distance (and safe) from Country Inn and Suites? The shuttle would save us the hassle of returning the car, and time at the counter to rent it.

    What kind of places are you looking for? There's a Burger King and a Race Track gas station but not much for restaurants if that's what you are looking for.

    Thanks for posting this! We were able to get the 49 dollars per night per room for two rooms prior to our April Transatlantic cruise.

    Thanks for this info -- we also got the Country Inn & Suites Cape Canaveral on Priceline for $49 ($62 w/ tax).

    Now, if we can just find one in Macon, GA on our way down ...

    Thanks again,

    Diane

    I also just bid and won Country Inn for pre-cruise night on Jan 20th. I bid priceline 2 1/2 stars first at $47.00 and they countered with a $13 increase, which I rejected. I added the Titusville zone (which has no 2 1/2 stars, so considered a free re-bid) and bid $49 and got accepted. Thanks for the pricing tips from all the previous posters!:thumbsup2

    I just bid again tonight and my bid was Accepted!! I got it for the $49.00 + taxes for our October date. :thumbsup2 The only thing I'm concerned about is, the priceline site did not ask how many people, it only asked how many rooms. The accepted bid info indicates the room will fit two adults. We will have two children with us. Should I worry about this, or maybe I will call the hotel in the morning and make sure there will be at least two double or two Queen beds in there?
