We are staying for the second time at the Sleep Inn in Dania, FL. It's about 3 miles from the airport. There is a free shuttle from the airport and to the pier. It shares a pad with a Walgreens - which is nice for last minute things you forgot. It's across the street from a shopping center with a grocery store and a few restaurants. There are also restaurants within walking distance I believe. There is the free breakfast in the morning. Prices are very reasonable.
