    We stayed at the Best Western Oceanside Inn. It was nice for what it was...clean beds, good lobby, open-air feel that was very Caribbean. Down A1A from there was Coconut's Bahama grill, great outdoors spot with OK food where you can watch boats come up the intercoastal waterway. Not sure about parking at the hotel during your cruise.

    That's a pretty long trip. Driving the Overseas Highways to Key West from the Miami/Lauderdale area can take as long as 4-5 hours. So you might want to stick closer to the Miami area and explore somewhere like Key Biscayne or Key Largo at the top end of the Keys. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is a fun spot for a day of swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing, for example.

    We stayed at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale which was accross the bridge from the port where the cruise ships sailed. I think they also give special rates to cruisers.
