I stayed at this Hampton Inn for one night between my flight and my cruise departure. Anytime I am staying alone somewhere I am unfamiliar with I choose Hampton Inns where available for their consistency. I have also stayed at thr nearby airport Hilton here but this time I wanted breakfast and to park a car so the Hampton was a better value. Airport and cruise port hotels see a lot more wear and tear because there are a lot of just-for-the-night visitors and more people often to one room. However, this property did not seem much worse for the wear. Front desk staff was extremely helpful and courteous. This hotel has a free shuttle from airport and offers cruise port transportation for $10. I didn't need the cruise transportation but it was offered at check in. I also opted for a cab from airport after returning my rental car but only because I was feeling lazy and FLL has the hotel shuttle stop in a fairly distant spot. I wished afterwards that I had ridden with the kind shuttle driver :-) If I were staying in the area for a few days, I'd opt for a different location but this one was safe and convenient to both the airport and cruise terminal. If you're like me and flying in before a Port Everglades cruise I'd recommend you consider a rental car from National for the day to explore. Upon return the morning of your cruise they then have a free port shuttle. This could especially save you money if you have several folks in your party and is very convenient. Breakfast was exactly as I'd expect at a Hampton Inn with hot options as well as traditional continental ones. Wi-fi was free throughout and reliable. Pool area large for a hotel that isn't a resort and folks were enjoying it. Convenient bargain type shopping nearby- Kmart, BigLots, Marshall's, Ross, Walgreens. Quick, casual dining nearby including options within walking distance. This neighborhood is diverse and not "upscale" but I felt safe.
