... story (it's in Spanish), when I get a chance.
I was completely surprised by the food in Spain, not about how good it was, but how cheap it was. I'm not sure if it's because of their ongoing financial problems or if it's always been that way, but I didn't spend more than 12 Euro on a meal. Breakfast and lunch were incredibly cheap, I don't think I paid more than 5 Euro for either. The bread was very good, not ...

... everyone else, we'd be nailed. So I walked casually outside, as if I was getting some air, then sheened over the road and hid behind a hedge [ also taking the opportunity to have a **** ] and then Nick followed, leaving Chris to come last because, as we know, they spent five minutes telling him he DIDN'T have a tab, so of the three of us he's the least suspicious.
It was all going well. I rendezvoused with Nick, and soon Chris came over. ...
I would try to describe to you all the work that has been accomplished over the past few days, but I am positive I would slaughter the descriptions. What I do know is that we've made some major progress, and we will now all feel much more at ease and fully confident in the boat. It's a good feeling. Hejira is still hauled out of the water and on stilts at present, but I just heard from Peter that the yard is preparing our bill and, after a few final tasks, ...
I think the boys will join me in saying this was a pretty hectic and exhausting day. We have been going strong since breakfast, and after I finish this post I am off to bed!
We started out the day with a greasy spoon breakfast at Grampa's Bakery and Diner, or something like that - apparently it's been featured on the Food Network - who knew? We did a couple of errands while out, but then we swung back through the marina to drop the boys off. Pete had an oil change ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sleep Inn Ft. Lauderdale International Airport Dania
We booked this hotel because they provided shuttles to/from airport and to/from cruise port. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Nicely located next to a drug store for those last minute cruise items. The continental breakfast was more than expected by including waffles, biscuits and gravy, bagels & cream cheese, along with all the expected items. Rooms were clean and adequate for all needs. Our family will continue to use this hotel in the future.
We stayed here over the Easter weekend. We had booked 4 rooms - our family went to visit grandparents that live in the area. The location is great. The appearance is beautiful. Once inside, it's another story.
Excellent hotel.Very very accomodating.Staff is very very courteos
Very good hotel. Must stay if you are in Ft lauderdale.Very helpful staff. Slose to the beach and restuarants.
My wife and three grandchildren stayed here on April 6th after arriving late at the Fort Lauderdale Airport. Because we got in late we didn't have the opportunity to use the pool or exercise room, so I can't comment on them. The rooms were new and clean. Breakfast was excellent, including good bagels and Belgian waffles. This would seem to be a good choice for anyone needing a hotel near the airport.
Stayed at Sleep Inn prior to cruise, good clean hotel, excellent breakfast. The Italian restaurant and Chinese takeaway across the road are good. Could do with some more restaurants.
We...father, mother, adult son and his wife, stayed at the Sleep Inn in Dania (call it Ft. Lauderdale!) prior to a Celebrity Cruise. We had pre-booked for one night. Son and wife arrived by Sleep Inn complimentary van from the airport. My wife and I arrived from Miami via SuperShuttle at fee. Quick and courteous checkin. Average size room with comfortable bed and view of the swimming pool. A great place for about $80 per night per room including taxes. Very clean and like new.
This is the third time my wife and I stayed in the Ft Lauderdale area the night before a cruise and this is the best hotel yet. Our previous hotels were 3 and 3.5 stars but this one had the most to offer. Free breakfast, high speed internet in the room, newspaper, and shuttle service. The room was very clean and above average in size. There is a Italian, Chinese, and American restraurant across the street from the hotel. My only complaint was the shuttle service. The complimentary shuttle van works for two hotels so expect delays. The van will take you to the cruise port but you may have to stop at the airport first. Also, the sign-up list for the shuttle at the hotel had eight people signed up for our time slot and it is wishful thinking to expect to squeeze eight people in one van with their luggage.
Met our every expectation
Stayed in this very nice newer hotel 6/14/04. Room was clean and comfortable. There is a Walgreens across the parking lot which is handy. Not quite as close to the airport as we thought, but is still very convenient (1-2 miles?). Would stay here again.
I stayed here along with three friends for one night prior to leaving on a cruise. The hotel looked new and was very clean. The room was larger than expected and had a seperate seating area with sofa sleeper and easy chair. There was also a very nice desk with leather chair and a small table with two chairs. The hotel gave free shuttle from the airport and also to the cruise port. The desk clerk was very pleasant and helped with getting a lost bag delivered from the airport. We ate at an excellant Italian restrauant across the street. I would definately stay here again pre or post cruise.
At first this hotel sounded great! A brand-new bldg with free airport and cruise port shuttles! The pictures of the room must have been taken with a trick camera, It was SOOO small that the edge of the bed practically hit the desk and the tv. Our free shuttle to the airport ended up being a disaster thanks to the poor handling of the shuttle service by the hotel staff. We were asked to sign up the night before for the time we wanted a shuttle to the cruise port (they have only one van - so space is limited). We chose 11:00. That time came and went as we were standing outside waiting for the shuttle. Around 11:45 it finally arrived, however by this time we were pushed out of the way by those guests who had signed up for the 12:00 shuttle and were early. After complaining at the front desk- they did NOTHING to resolve this, and even requested that a woman with her two young children hold them BOTH on her lap so there would be room for other guests. (I couldn't believe this!) FIRST - we made two stops at the ariport, and then the rest of us got off at the cruise terminal about a half hour later. The van was so packed with people and luggage - that my husband's garment bag was left tucked under some other luggage when we arrived. The driver hurriedly dropped all of us off with our luggage and quickly drove away. When we turned around, we realized he left with the garment bag...so we called from the cell phone and were told by the hotel manager that there was nothing he could do - it would be there when we got back next week!! Their mistake, and we had to do without our formal clothes for this cruise! My husband hailed a cab, and after a $35.00 cab fare and an hour later we had our garment bag and were back on the ship. The desk peron was rude, and even made us wait while he checked in guests at the counter before handing us the bag.... all the while the courtesy shuttle van was waiting outside with no one to transport.... and he told us it was too busy to circle back ith our bag! This is a family owned hotel, (the same guy also owns the Econolodge)and I would NOT recommend suporting them with your business!
