We stayed here only one night, pre-cruise, and it was close to perfection. The hotel is located very close to both the airport and the cruiseport, as it's name implies. There is a complimentary shuttle to bring you from the airport; make a call from the bank of courtesy phones in the airport. The shuttle serves several hotels, but this was not a problem, as it's a brief ride. The hotel is extremely clean and sparkly. The staff was pleasant. There is a swimming pool with a pleasant patio for guests and it is nice to spend a little time outdoors when the weather is warm. Bedding and amenities were excellent. Free wifi throughout the hotel.
The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle only to the neighboring Crowne Plaza Hotel, where there is Kiki's Restaurant, an upscale choice.
There is a shopping plaza close by, just a short walk across a parking lot. There is McDonald's, Wendy's, etc. There is a Dollar Tree, liquor store, grocery store, Big Lots, etc. in this plaza. There is a restaurant called Slacker's Bar & Grill- a casual sports bar with a full menu of choices. There is a small Chinese take-out as well. The grocery sells wine, beer, coke, and bottled water, if you care to buy these for your cruise.
There is a complimentary breakfast- scrambled eggs, sausages, toast, juices, coffee, cereal, yogurt, etc. The hotel offers shuttle service to the cruiseport at $8.00 per person. It is available at 10:30, 11:30; simply leave your name at the desk the night before to reserve a seat.
We paid $89 + tax for this hotel; we saw some rates listed at $109, and some for $69, just depends on the date and the vendor you buy it from, I guess.

After arriving at the airport for an overnight layover I called the hotel for a shuttle. I was put on hold for 20 minutes. I finally hung up and called back. I asked for a shuttle again and was put on hold for another 15 min. Another 20 min later, the shutle finally showed. The room was nice, this surprised me considering that the lobby could use some work. When we arranged for an airport shuttle for the next morning the front desk HIGHLY recommended we take the 3am shuttle for a 5:45am flight. This was a mistake. The airport in FLL doesn't even open until 4:30! Working at an airport area hotel, shouldn't you know this?! Needless to say we waited for almost an hour and a half in an empty airport for any attendants to show. Doubt I'll be staying at a Best Western any time soon. I'll pay more for competence next time.

Hotel was fine for what we rented it for. Picked us up at the airport free of charge, but charged $16 to take us to the cruise ship, then $20 to bring us back two weeks later!?!?!? Same trip, why the extra? Rooms are nice and large and we were able to really spread out! Breakfast was fine, hot food served, typical fare.

Hotel is rather run down. Breakfast was very salty scrambled eggs and very greasy sausage cereal packaged danish juice coffee. Breakfast room very small. Don't bother eating here - go next door to mcdonalds. Room was ok and clean. For almost $200 for one night we expected much better. Add $8 per person for a shuttle to the port. Good grocery store next door.

There were 2 issues with the room.

1) Very bad stink/smell/odor in the rooms, felt like the carpets were not cleaned properly and dried thereafter.
2) The bathroom tub was collecting water and draining was extremely slow. Had to wait 15-20 min before you could take a bath.
