Introduction to Doubletree Cocoa Beach Oceanfront

The Doubletree by Hilton is a beachfront hotel in Cocoa Beach. With plenty of parking, ocean view or partial ocean view rooms, an on-site restaurant and a nice pool, it is a popular hotel with cruisers who enjoy the beach as well as the perks offered by the Hilton Hotel group at lower rates than the nearby Hilton hotel.

Location

The Doubletree Cocoa Beach is an oceanfront property only 6 miles from the cruise terminals. The beach is just steps away! Expect to pay about $32 per day for 2 beach chairs and an umbrella.

As shown on the map below, the hotel is located in a quiet area of Cocoa Beach but there is a Publix grocery store across the road (sells wine and beer). The strip mall is also home to one of the area’s best restaurants – Florida’s Fresh Grill – as well as an Irish Pub – Paddy Cassidy’s (no food). Please call ahead to avoid disappointment at the Grill because it is very popular. The friendly Irish Pub offers pool and darts with occasional live music but is somewhat dark inside.

Pool

While the heated pool itself is rather small with little privacy, the area takes up most of the space between the hotel and the beach and is actually very inviting.

Introduction to the Hampton Inn Cocoa Beach

Location

As you can see in the aerial photo below, the Hampton Inn Cocoa Beach (highlighted in blue) is located a short distance from the ocean (it is not an ocean-front property) but most of the rooms have views of the ocean.

While the area is very safe to walk, there is not much nearby. The closest best restaurant is Brano’s a few blocks to the north. Near Brano’s are fast food restaurants Taco Bell, Long John Silvers and a Waffle House.

If you want to walk about 8 blocks to the north (passing Brano’s on your left) you will find more restaurants, hotels, mini-golf and the famous Ron Jon Surf Shop.

To reach the beach you have to walk to the pool area and then down a path for only 0.1 miles (marked in green in the photo above). You can rent an umbrella and two chairs for about $32 per day.

Rooms

Note – the room numbering system is funky here! There are basically 2 clusters of rooms – those east (beach-side) of the elevators and those to the west (A1A-side) of the elevators!

The numbering begins in the middle as shown below! Room 810 is way west (left) and 820 is way east (right) closest to the beach.

Hampton Inn - Room Numbers
Hampton Inn – Room Numbers (click to enlarge)

The higher rooms on the 6th, 7th and 8th floors have the best ocean views but it depends on the room location. For example, rooms immediately to the west of the elevators may not have ocean views because of the structure.

If you want to overlook the pool, pick rooms 820 to 811 for example. Or 220 to 211 to stay just above the pool!

Rooms can accommodate either 4 or 6 persons and include a mini fridge and microwave. Options are:

  • A King Bed with a Sleeping Sofa. Maximum 4 persons.
  • Two Queen Beds with a Sleeping Sofa. Maximum 6 persons.
  • Two Queen Beds. Maximum 4 persons.
