Default Best Western Marina/FLL-pre cruise?

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has stayed at this hotel before a cruise out of Port Everglades?
Any info would be appreciated.

I live in Miami so I don't stay in our hotels. I have heard that it's clean and comfortable however. The main problem will be transportation. They don't offer transfers to the ships, which is a darned shame. Miami taxi drivers can be a temperamental bunch. I refer you to the first day of Kuki's Explorer of the Seas cruise where he had to transfer between two ships at the port of Miami. Well, the trip between the Best Western Marina and the port is only a little bit longer. I think you would need to guarantee the taxi driver an EXCELLENT tip. A goood point is that you are across the street from Bayside, a great place to shop and have a meal.

This response confused me. Isn't FLL Fort Lauderdale?

I've never had trouble with taxi drivers and getting to my ship.

Thanks.

Their advertising says they have an airport to hotel and hotel to peir shuttle - is this true or not?

Maybe Ft. Lauderdale does, but the Best Western Marina is in Miami and they've never had transfers to the ships before. If they've started it, good for them!

I am in fact talking about Fort Lauderdale Best Western Marina...and they advertise free air and port transportation.....
Just wondering about the rooms since I had heard it called the Roach motel and will not stay there if that is the case.
