Does anyone have suggestions about where to stay near the eastern entrance (Hwy 41) to the Everglades? There appears to be no accommodations in the park itself, except in Everglades City, but that's way to the west, and I need a motel to stay for one night (under $100) as close as possible to the eastern end, so that I can get an early start the next day to maximize my time in the Everglades before arriving in Fort Myers that night (I have a place booked there already). I will be spending a couple of days driving south along A1A from Cocoa Beach, but don't really have the time or desire to drive through Fort Lauderdale or Miami. I keep reading about Homestead and Florida City, but they appear on the map to be about 50 km out of my way (too far south from the direction I'll be travelling from). I see there is a little town called Sweetwater, which I guess is a suburb of Miami--would that be my best bet? Thanks in advance.
