9 Convenient Mobile “Park and Cruise” Hotels

It’s one of the little-known secrets about saving money on a cruise… and it can save you a lot of money.

The market for hotels is always competitive, especially in Mobile, Alabama. As a result, many hotels will offer perks in order to attract more guests. And with a major cruise port in town that brings in guests from all around the region, that means offering parking packages that include free or discounted parking as a thank you for booking.

Parking can be a pretty hefty price on top of your cruise fare. Fares run $18 a day at the Alabama Cruise Terminal. That means for a 5-day trip, you can expect to pay $90 for parking.

But if you are staying in the area, then you can find a hotel that offers a cruise parking package. These packages include parking in your hotel fare, typically for an amount that’s a little more than the regular room rate, but less than parking at the cruise port. In addition, they will often include transport back and forth from your ship.

To be sure, if you don’t plan on staying at a hotel the night before, then doing it just for the parking isn’t worth the added expense. But if you are going to stay somewhere, we suggesting finding a place with cruise parking to save some money.

We’ve rounded up a list of hotels in the area that have parking packages for Mobile cruisers.
