We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express numerous times before going or after a cruise. It's the perfect location - close to the port, easy walking to restaurants and stores. Be sure and check the front desk if they have any coupons for nearby restaurants. Our favorite place is the Bimini Boatyard Bar & Grill. The hotel is updated... More

Stayed here for two nights before our cruise. Many places to eat within walking distance. I had the hotel schedule a cab for us the evening before our cruise. It worked out great. Cab was on time and only 5.00 ride to cruise ship. The room was fine and the staff was very nice. The first night of my stay... More

Very close to the Port if you are cruising with shuttle connections from the airport to the hotel as well as shuttle service to the cruise ship. Amelia at the front desk was very helpful and courteous and the day Manager, Margaret made sure our reservations after the cruise were taken care of. There was a fire alarm in the... More

We arrived at the airport approximately 11:00 on a Sunday, I called the hotel for the shuttle and was told 20 minutes, after 45 minutes I had to call again, we were finally picked up after an hour and 10 minutes. If we had... More

It was so close we walked it in 10 minutes with bags in tow, saved waiting for a taxi or Hotel shuttle, which was $8 per person. The rooms were of a good standard, clean and neat and with a large fridge and microwave, if required.... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. We chose this hotel both times because of its proximity to the cruise terminal in Port Everglades. Check-in was easy and efficient and the staff welcoming and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean and more than adequate for an overnight stay. We drove down from New Jersey and although we... More
