Hi there, will be sailling Carnival Glory May 9th, would like to spend the day and nite before in Miami. Could someone recommend a hotel near the Port of Miami, that won't break the budget....on the beach would be great. Thanks for your help.

It isn't on the beach, but we stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton (I believe it's owned by Hilton) on the bay! We had a very nice bay view room for only $119.00 and they give you fresh chocolate chip cookies to enjoy when you check in! The pools there are amazing, and overlooks the bay! Hottubs are wonderful too! They also give a military discount if you are military. I called directly to the hotel to get that rate.

Not to be flip or anything.. but there is no such things as a Hotel on the beach in Miami that is budget friendly. If you do find one that advertises a cheap rate... stay clear as something is not going to be good.

Holiday Inn Port of Miami is a good choice they are across the street from the Port entrance and from the Miami "Bayside" shopping/restaurant area. They are going to run you about $150 for a night (at least the last time I checked that was the price, your mileage may vary) There are plenty of hotels in Miami, but if you are wanting "on the beach" be prepared to spend some cash to do it... OR stay a long way from the port. Last time we were there we just stayed near the airport at a hotel with a free airport shuttle and then taxied to the port the next day so we only had to pay for one taxi ride.
