Port Canaveral hotels with cruise shuttle
If you are traveling without a car
You can make use of a shuttle to the port which most hotels offer for a small fee. There are some hotels that offer packages that include both a shuttle, and parking. We always suggest that you first choose your hotel of choice based on your needs (budget, room, location, breakfast included, star rating).
Some hotels offer free shuttles to the port, but only if your reservation is a cruise package. If you would like to save a few dollars, you can always check the difference between a cruise package and a room and paying for the shuttles separately. Cost for a shuttle transfer is only $5 or $6.
Airport transfer shuttle
Some hotels offer shuttle transfers from Orlando International Airport and Orlando Sanford International Airport in Florida, although some outsource this to companies like Cocoa Beach shuttle. If you prefer booking the shuttle yourself, you can always do so. If you decide to use the hotel offered shuttle, you might end up paying a similar, slightly lower or slightly higher shuttle fee to the hotel, than you would be booking on your own.
Again, we suggest you book your hotel depending on your needs rather than their airport transfer shuttle as this can be booked separately.
Another option is to rent a single-way vehicle that can be dropped off at the car rental depot near the port. From there, you can catch a free shuttle to the port. Night stays at most hotels include free parking for the duration of your stay.
As for parking
After making a reservation of your hotel of choice, you can always park at the port. If it works for you, you can also opt for park and cruise. Stay for the night and leave your car at the hotel while on cruise. Rates begin around $6.00 per night for parking.
The decision to stay at any of the hotel mentioned here depends on what you need. Whether you are traveling with family or a pet. If you do not mind staying further inland, you also might end up saving more as hotels near the port tend to cost a bit more. That, however, means you might end up paying more for the shuttle to the port when leaving for your cruise.
Ultimately, your choice of hotel should cater to all your needs and be within your budget. Make sure to check a few hotels and compare to get the best deal.
