Hotel suggestion along Turnpike or I-95

My family and I get into West Palm about 10:30 pm next Thurs (2/14) and will be driving to Key West the next morning. Would like to put a few miles under our belts and stop along the way between WPB and FLL, preferably along the Turnpike, but I-95 will do. We're just sleeping so hoping to spend less that $100. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

First off, I'll write a big 'ditto' to what Lulutoo wrote in the FLL forums - we're in the heart of tourist season so hotel rates are hitting the ceiling. I highly doubt you'll find anyplace under $100 along the turnpike that you'll want your family to stay overnight. Between $125-$150 and you may find places that aren't absolutely filthy. Between $150-$200 and the places practice 'basic' hygiene. Over $200 will get you a nice normal hotel room.

That being written, about the cheapest hotel I'd recommend for a quick overnight stay while en route to points elsewhere would be the Holiday Inn Express (West Boca Raton). At %150/room/per-night it isn't cheap, but it seems safe & clean the last time I had to stay there (my condo was flooded and I needed to stay near work). Another plus (hmm) is that it is convenient to the Turnpike. There is also a Hilton right nearby if you want to compare prices & amenities (or are scared-out/disgusted-by the HIE).
