Any recommendation Hotel 1 night between Miami and Orlando

Hello,

Got our April trip pretty much planned with the exception of a single night hotel on a road trip up from Key West to Orlando. Any recommendation on a town/hotel on this route or just off it?

Was thinking of going via the US27 rather than the turnpike, but it wouldn't be a game changer if we went that way.

We are 4 (2*adults + 2*Teens) and looking for a place we can park up at the hotel & walk to a local restaurant/bar etc.

Many thanks in advance...

Last year we stayed at key largo and broke our journey up to Orlando by a night in west palm beach , it was the Hilton and great location - fantastic atmosphere and across the road from the shops
We also went shopping in the huge outlet ( cant think of the name ) outside Miami on our way
Loads of stores but personally too many ! But glad I went

I'm looking at Hollywood Beach - Margaritaville Hotel looks lovely. North of Miami - so not exactly between though...

There really isn't much between Orlando and Miami (except for roads)

I'd suggest you either stay in Miami for the night or just "suck it up" and press on to Orlando - we've done Key West to Orlando many times - once you are past Miami you may as well just keep on driving...

We stayed at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach in August, it's bout 45 mins to an hour past Miami, there were quite a few bars/restaurants around which were easy walking distance and it was right on the beach. We had awesome burgers at a restaurant under the hotel called Burger Craze, best burgers we had in all 3 weeks by a mile!
