Graph of Merritt Island, FL Hotel Prices for Next 20 Days

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Merritt Island, FL discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Merritt Island hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Whether you're looking to book a hotel within a close driving distance of Space Coast destinations, or you're hoping to splurge on a hotel with upscale amenities, Merritt Island offers a variety of accommodations to meet your needs.Merritt Island does not officially belong to any Florida city. The southern section is largely residential, with the central area boasting a library, a shopping district, and a high school. Tourists tend to stick to the northern section where the attractions are located, but it's worth driving around the whole island to appreciate its beauty.
Merritt Island was first explored in 1605 by Alvaro Mexia during a diplomatic mission to encounter the local tribes. The king of Spain granted the land to a nobleman named Merritt, from whom the island takes its name. During the 1950s and 1960s, NASA expanded when the Space Race and Merritt Island's northern half was cut off for the purpose of building the Space Center.
Despite NASA retiring the Space Shuttle program in 2011, Merritt Island has remained a top destination for travelers wanting to visit NASA's primary launch site. Whatever your reason for visiting, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to enjoy everything this wonderful island has to offer.

When would be the best time to visit the town of Merritt Island, FL?

In general, the best time to visit Florida is from November through May when the rainfall is at its lowest. The summer months experience the most rain and the biggest influx of tourists, which can make visiting your favorite attractions more difficult.
Fall is a prime season for Space Coast activities. Not only does the rain let up and the kids are back in school, reducing the crowds, but festival season kicks into high gear. October sees numerous fall festivals and craft fairs in surrounding communities, not to mention the many Halloween-themed pub crawls. November marks Space Coast Lightfest, the Festival of Trees, and the ever-popular Space Rendezvous featuring an astronaut autograph show.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that Florida's hurricane season runs from June to the end of November, so being flexible with your travel plans is key if you want to enjoy the Sunshine State at its finest.
If you're traveling without children and still want to enjoy perfect temperatures, consider booking a hotel in April or May ahead of the hurricane season. There's a low chance of rain and temperatures hover around the mid- to upper 80s.
