Comfort Inn Oceanside,, just a few blocks away, for prices ranging

by rooming with somebody, drop me a line at and I will act as a 
clearinghouse for such requests. Please remember, this is in season, so I encourage you to do 
this at your earliest convenience. This is especially important if you want to make a vacation 
out of this and come early or stay late (remember, M Jan 16 is MLK Day), as space at the special 
rate is limited.

order of increasing distance from the hotel, Ft.Lauderdale/Hollywood, Palm Beach, and Miami.
