My girlfriend, Alma, and I will be staying at the Red Carpet Inn nearest to the airport. They offer free pick up from the airport as well as transportation to the cruise ship terminal. That's the reason I chose that hotel. It was one of the less expensive choices, but it's far above a Motel 6.
There are tons of hotels in the area, I did a lot of research. A lot of them are expensive, at least for my budget. I had the best luck using Priceline.com. Good luck!
