    We stayed at Hyatt Regency Pier sixty-six.

    Very convenient and close to the cruise terminal. Not close to all the pre-party and beach activity.

    Room was okay, but walls very thin, and not within easy walking distance of, well, anything really.

    I would not recommend it.

    Hollywood beachside Boutique--very nice,clean--no issues with overcharges or lost reservations like some other on Hollywood beach. The owner liked my " How come I'm so thirsty today, when I had so much to drink last night" shirt I wore the day we got off the ship :lol: She took some pics haha

    Was a 15 min walk to the Riptide Beach party and close to bars and liquor store

    I stayed at the Atlantic Hotel and Spa. Will never stay there again. It was nice and on the beach but
    they bumped me my first night and I am sure it was because I booked 3rd party. My advice to everyone is not to book third party. This was my first and last time to do that.

    Bahia Mar on Fort Lauderdale Beach, was nice enough for the small amount of time I spent there. Was close enough to the Port, but was about a 30 dollar cab ride to all the pre events

    Same here. Didn't really enjoy the place and the owners were not exactly kind, but at least we had no trouble with the reservation or the room, and the price was reasonable.

    I stayed with the Michigan crew @ the Riptide for 3 days,(cooking my ass off) nothing like being forced to cook bacon ... Since I've been a vegetarian for 24 years (that's being a true friend) then the last night with the Minnesota crew @ the Hollywood Beach Hotel . I had a blast can't wait for next year

    Best Western near the airport. It was fine. We arrived late the night before the cruise so just needed it for a bed and free breakfast. Also had an airport and cruise port shuttle so that was nice.

    Rafael and I stayed at the Quality Inn FLL/Cruiseport South in Hollywood, and I recommend it for anyone who's driving in for the cruise.
    I booked it through stay123.com, and the deal included free parking at the hotel for the duration of the cruise and free shuttle to and from the pier. It was about $90 for the one night pre-cruise.
    Hotel room was fine, it's right by the interstate and it's within walking distance of restaurants and stores...and only a five-minute drive to the Riptide for the beach-party.

    Hollywood Beach Hostel, and I wouldn't stay there again, they're thieves. I haven't gotten my $50 security deposit back, and attempted email communication with them has proven to be futile. They don't accept cash payment so it makes it easier for them to rip you off once you've left, and more difficult for you to reclaim it, instead of refunding cash upon checkout like every other hostel I've been to. Dodgy. So, stay there at your own risk, because they may try to rip you off too! Anyone else have problems with them, or is it just me?

    I did, they charged my deposit twice. I pointed it out at the front desk (with proof), they gave me the email of a person to talk to and an upgrade to a very swank room. My charge was reversed about four days after I emailed the person.

    I'm 50/50 on whether I'd go again. They handled it well and they were cheap, but I still had problems. I guess it depends if I go with someone and split a hotel room next year if I'll go again.

    The two emails I was given were:

    chela.garcia@southbeachgroup.com
    jessica.santiago@southbeachgroup.com

    Apparently they work finances for the hotel chain, saw that I had the second charge when it didn't show up in the hotel's system itself, and could reverse the charges.

    Thanks! I'll try one of those, and see if anything comes of it. I emailed the manager of the hostel and didn't get a response. Then I emailed through the general enquiries line which was bookings@southbeachgroup.com, and got a quick reply but weren't helpful, basically just told me to speak to my bank and I haven't heard from them since.

    Well hopefully you can get something out of them, otherwise you have to go through your bank for a charge back and no one wants that. Especially not the hotel.
