at first I thought you just wanted a place to stay just north of the port; but 2 hours north is about ?? Melbourne/Cocoa Beach area? if you are stopping Daytona Beach there is an expensive hotel that is very clean called Emerald Shores, which is in South Daytona Beach. I haven't found a hotel in Cocoa Beach that is reasonably priced and not musty

I have been having good luck with the Hilton Garden Inns through Fla; we travel in state for work and don't want to pay top$ for a "Hilton" but the Garden Inns are clean and nice and still chain owned and operated unlike some Days Inn, etc...

We stayed at Country Inn & suites off I-95 & Vero beach right near the mall there. Good location and still plenty of time to get to Miami port.

It was $130 with taxes... this was early January
there is a Hampton inn next door and you can walk to outlet mall.

There was another hotel down the road but cannot remember what it was.
