You can try the Ramada Inn Cruiseport which is near the port and has a free shuttle. Don't expect too much in the way of hotel amenities though. make sure it is not the Ramada Plaza in Fort Lauderdale. That one is a great hotel for the price but is a $50 cab ride from the airport and cost $30 by bus to the port.

Hi new2this,

Driving in the day before you sail is a wonderful idea! I have two suggestions for hotels that have free parking:

Hampton Inn, Plantation, and LaQuinta Inn, Hollywood. Both have a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (I know you don't need this) and from the hotel to the port. You'll have to take a taxi back to the hotel after the cruise.

I'm not familiar with other hotels, but "they" say that anything on 17th street is good . Stay away from anything on Stirling Road (rooms by the hour ).

Do your homework by reading online reviews of hotels and heeding their advice. I learned that the hard way> I found a "great price" and later regretted it.
