Default Park and Cruise in Mobile

I have looked for any posting (less than a yr old) and have not been able to find any regarding park and cruise specials in Mobile. Only one I found was Semmes Hotel. Can someone either tell me how to find former postings on this site or just post a response please? Thanks in advance!

That's the best one. The Mobile CVB has some hotels listed for cruise specials, but parking may not be included. The Admiral Semmes is ideal for cruising. It has a nautical theme and you can see the cruise terminal from your room. They drop you off and pick you up in a caddy. I enjoyed it when I stayed there.

Look at the Renaissance Riverview Plaza. They have one. You park in the public garage attached to the hotel but they give you a free pass so you don't pay when you leave. They also have a shuttle to and from the ship. We did this last July and the parking savings alone was worth it as compared to parking at the pier.

Jeez that's the one I meant. I forgot that they have three properties downtown. Yes, the high rise is the one I meant. (The Semmes is smaller and more historic) All three offer the same cruise package.

Everyone I know stays at microtel in saraland. They quoted me $119. Someone else says $129 this close to mardi gras. Nice hotel with parking and cruise shuttle

Here are some more which include parking.

Mobile Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau - Official Tourism and Convention Website for Mobile Alabama

The cheapest Iv found is mobile bay adventure inn, reviews are kinda bad, but its only $109 including shuttle for 4 and parking during your cruise. the pictures look like a 3 story walk up.

A good thing about the Renaissance properties is they are literally just 5 or so minutes from the port. On debarkation day we left with the VIP group, got picked up almost immediately by the hotel shuttle, were at the hotel in just a couple of minutes, and on I-65 heading home in 20 minutes or so from when we exited the Customs area.

Default Thanks everyone for all the info!

gsproduceman..we sail Monday Jan 10th..so in 3 days will hopefully be getting ready to go to the welcome onboard show! We sailed one other time out of Mobile and for the life of me I can not remember what hotel we stayed at..I know last time I did not do the park and cruise but have gotten used to doing that with the cruises we do out of Port Canaveral. We always stay at Country Inns and Suites there and depending on what side of hotel you get a room you can get up the morning of the cruise and see the ship in port waiting on you to get there!

I hope they get it back in ship shape for you. We have some Cruisemates on her now.
