Recommendations for a 'just in case' Miami hotel - cheapish

We are flying into Miami this year as prices were too good not too... our flight is due to land 3pm local time ...so 8pm to us; hoping to be on the road by 5pm ... so will feel like 10pm and head straight up to Orlando

OH is used to driving late at night and also has an ability to sleep anywhere anytime so tiredness wont be an issue, however i am thinking about a back up should we encounter any delays as wouldnt want to be driving any later

So looking for recommendations near miami airport or an hour ish up the road that we could have booked should it be needed

The Sheraton directly across the road from the airport is nice. Think we only paid around 75 for the night. (In advance though)

We have booked the Comfort Suites North for our stay in August. Has been recommended multiple times on here. And it has a sofa bed as well as 2 doubles which suits our family better.

We stayed here last year and have booked again this year. Easy to find even in the dark and mcdees is a 5 min walk away. Room was absolutely fine and a nice breakfast the next day. Weve paid 58 this time ... bargain!

We stayed at the Best Western nearby. Like your husband I can sleep anywhere but after traveling from Scotland through London and then on to Miami we didnt then fancy the 4hr drive up the road that night. We booked with Tesco clubcard vouchers, so basically free (apart from tax) with complimentary breakfast and were in Orlando for lunch.

Are you talking about a throwaway booking or one you can cancel on the day?

I had the airport Clarion booked as I wasn't sure if we'd be up to driving. It was cancellable up to 4pm on the day.

As it happened we felt fine so just cancelled it for free - this was via the Clarion's website. I'm sure you'd be able to do this for other hotels if you check out their t&cs.

I've saved a few cheap motels on a trip advisor 'trip' all along the route and we're just going to drive until we feel like stopping. We also land at 3pm and hoping to leave the airport sometime between 4 and 7pm!
