hey everyone, I am flying down from Maine the first week of October to check out apartments in both Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood. Whichever I feel is the best I will pick...but that is besides the point. I know the cities are next to each other, but is there a particular hotel that is fairly close to both? Need to stay for a few nights and not looking for some big fancy place. Thanks

Not sure where you'll be looking in Ft. Lauderdale, but if you're looking in the southeast part of the city, check out one of the hotels near Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Those will be convenient to both Lauderdale and Hollywood. Any of the hotels at I-95 and Stirling Road or I-95 and Griffin Road would work. There's a Sheraton, a Hilton and a Springhill Suites in that area. If you want to spend a bit more, look in SE Ft. Lauderdale on the 17th St. Causeway or on Hollywood Beach.

Cool, if I am in Fort Lauderdale by the airport will that be about 15-20 min from Hollywood? And vice versa if I find a cheaper hotel in Hollywood?

Mike-

I would take Vigo's recommendation. The airport is on the extreme south side of Fort Lauderdale very close to Hollywood. There is a cluster of hotels on Griffin Rd just off I-95. All you'd have to do is jump on 95 and go down 3 exits (2-3 miles) and get off at Hollywood Blvd. You could also go east and take US1. The 95 route would take you 5 minutes max exit to exit during non-rush hour times.

There are some other hotels along 95 at the Sheridan Street exit too. I believe a Holiday Inn Express that's pretty new. I'm not too familiar with the hotels closer to downtown Hollywood, but I'm guessing their pricier for good ones and run down for cheaper ones. You're probably best of near the airport.

There is another cluster of hotels on SR-84 just off I-95 in Fort Lauderdale, but another 2 exits north of Griffin. You may find better rates on the SR-84 ones.
