Default Motels with Free Parking - Port Canaveral

Does anyone know of any motels/hotels near Port Canaveral that offer free parking during the cruise with shuttle service??? I just heard that parking went up to $12 a day.

Thanks, Dean

The Radisson at Port Canaveral lets you park your car for the week when staying there prior to the cruise. They also have shuttles back and forth to the ship. Its a really nice resort and you can check the internet and get a good rate.

Jules,
Are the shuttles free??? Do you have to reserve a certain time? What's the earliest that they operate?

Thanks again!

Dean

The Hampton Inn also offers free parking and shuttle service. The shuttle service is free if you book with their cruise rate. All you have to do is tip the driver.

I booked online at www.hamptoninn.com and got the special cruise rate. It was an acceptable hotel, especially since we got an oceanview room with a balcony. They also have a free breakfast buffet. I would stay there again.

Cheers,

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the closest airport to Port Canaveral. To get to the port you can rent a car, take a private shuttle, or use Carnival's shuttle service.

Orlando is the closest major airport. There is a small airport in Melbourne which is closer and then there is always Daytona but Orlando will have the most airlines and flights.

They just opened a new Comfort Inn, 3 miles from the pier that has a free shuttle to the pier and free parking. From what I have heard though you need to book early. Hope this helps.
