You might want to check with your cruise line. They may have arrangements with nearby hotels for their fly/sail customers, which includes a bus to/from the ship.

Use this website first, BiddingForTravel.com Forums, then bid on Priceline. Usually 50% off rack rates.

We used to overnight at:
Sherry Frontenac
6565 Collins Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33140
(305) 866-2122
sherryfrontenac.net‎

They had some pretty decent crew rates for being right on the beach. Plus, you can't beat the $1 beer vending machine at the pool!!
Have fun!!

Partied like a rockstar on vacation with my wife and two other friends at the Sherry! Can't be beat for the price, beach access, etc. Great pool also, and a beer vending machine. I'd definitely recommend!

If you can get a room, I second SF. You can get a decent buzz off of $5 by the pool there.

In Miami !, wow, pilots really are the cheapest people on the face of the Earth. lol

The Sherry does have a decent pool, especially when the foreign airline FAs are sunbathing out there. The Beer vending machine is a cool addition as well. The hotel itself, unfortunately, is a dump. It's in North Miami beach so if crack *****s are your thing, you should be able to pick one up outside the hotel after midnight.
