Hyatt Place on SE 10th and Holiday Inn Express Convention Center ( not the HI Express called Airport /Cruiseport) and Extended Stay are, both on 17th St usually the three most reasonably priced hotels near the Port. All have shuttles, but some may charge a small nominal fee for them- I don't keep up with which charge and which don't. Many of the hotels with entirely free Port shuttles are not near the Port at all- they are out in remote locations and offer the free shuttles to get business. I'd investigate the three listed above especially if you want o be ina area that has restaurants and shops nearby. many of the free shuttle places don't and once you are there you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere for the night before your cruise. Actually if there are that many of you every two couples can split ataxi fare into the Port- each taxi would hold four people and cost about $15 - so it would be less than $4 pp to not have to wait for a shuttle to load up and possibly stop at many ships before unloading you.. There are usually at least 6 ships I Port at once so the shuttles take forever to get around. Many other Port cities have high taxi fares- here the fare shared by four is almost nothing from those hotels, Many free shuttle places make you sign up for time slot and you might not get a time you prefer- and wait in a mob in the lobby to be loaded. A taxi is so much nicer as a way to get to your ship.
