Default Port Everglades

Does anyone know of a good, but cheap hotel that offers complimentary breakfast and port shuttle transportation?

Amerisuites, and Embassy suites, with port views from some rooms, it's so close, offer breakfasts and shuttle service.

The Ramada inn cruise port picks you up at the air port takes you to the
hotel and also takes you to the ship and Comfort suites airport and cruise port will do the same.. Yes breakfast is included in both.
not sure of the address at the ramada but the comfort inn is on 1800
south federal street.
Stayed at the ramada last year it was nice and we had alot of fun there.
But trying Comfort Inn this year.
I think the biggest reason is ramada had no queen beds and the day we booked the comfort inn was cheaper we got two queen beds and its a
suite. with four of us sharing a room thought the room would be bigger.

Any Advice on parking areas?? I live in orlando...our cruise is out of Port Everglades...Had our last cruise out of Miami...shelled out 60 for a 3 nite cruise...i think the parking fee hurts me the most...almost wish we could just fly and get shuttled over....anyone who has the same situation as me know of alternate methods of getting the the Ft. Laud without driving your own vehicle and paying the parking fees? i did find one place that charges about 3 bucks cheaper...i guess we'll end up using them...*sigh*

Thanks for the hotel suggestions though, we plan on staying the nite down there the day before because on our last cruise....since both me and DBF have the BEST luck in the world (notice the sarcasm)...we hit major traffic and ended up at the port at 3 when we had planned to arrive at 12....

Both LaQuinta Inn, Hollywood, and Hampton Inn, Plantation, offer shuttles from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the port. We've stayed at both and never had any problems. You need to arrange your own transportation after the cruise.

They also offer a continental breakfast and (I think?) free parking while you're on your cruise. Check their websites for more info !

Kloud, this probably wouldn't make much difference on a short cruise like a 3 day, but on anything longer it would probably save you money to get an inexpensive one way car rental from Dollar at MCO and return it at the FLL airport for under $30. There is a free shuttle that will take you to the port from there. Of course you'd need to take one back too so that would be another $30.
Amtrak runs between the cities but it doesn't get into FLL until after 5 pm most days.

Try carrentals.com I often get the best rates there for Florida. Also Enterprise though it costs a bit more, will often come pick you up at your home.
