Default Good or Bad: Best Western Marina Inn In Fort Lauderdale?

We will be staying one night before we sail at the Best Western that supposedly right on Port Everglades. I would appreciate any feedback for anyone who has stayed there? I see that there are water taxis to get to places for dinner, are they easy to use?
And can you really see the port from the hotel?


Thanks

We stayed there two years ago. The rooms are old but clean. People have talked of 'bugs' but we did not see (or feel) any. The restaurant and outside bar was OK.
They shuttle from airport and then to pier in AM free.
We will probably stay there in Nov. We arrive late in FL and just need somewhere to sleep.

I would only stay as a last resort. There are must nicer hotels in the area.

I stayed one night and couldn't wait to get out of there.

Why don't you try using www.priceline.com? Back in January we were about to get the Marriott Marina for about $75. This is one fantastic property and just a short taxi ride to the pier. We had friends stay at the Best Western and they paid more and were not pleased with it at all.

As of now I have the Best Western booked with a AAA rate just to hold the hotel and closer to time I may try PriceLine and get a nicer hotel.
