Hotel for 1 night close to the entrance to Everglades

After spending a few days in Fort Lauderdale, my daughter and I will be driving via the Tamiami Trail to Sanibel Island. We would like to find a hotel as close to Shark Valley as possible as we would like to do the 9 am tram tour.

Our requirement are:

-safe area for females on their own

-clean

-we are on a budget and are fine with mom and pop hotels. Would like to find something for $100 but realize it may be unrealistic.

Thanks for you help.

There aren't any hotels next to the shark valley entrance (it's all wilderness), but the Comfort Suites at 3901 SW 117 Ave might be a good compromise:

The area is generally safe, mostly shops and grocery stores etc.

It's approx 25 miles to Shark Valley.

If that hotel isn't available, would Miami airport be a good area to look ?

Sure, that's very doable. It'll add about 15 mins to the drive, but give you more choices. Among the better rated ones just west of the airport are:

Hilton Garden Inn 3550 NW 74th Avenue

Homewood Suites: 3590 NW 74th Avenue

Hoiliday Inn Express: 8436 NW 36th Street

Hampton Inn: 3620 N.W. 79th Avenue

La Qunita Inn: 8730 NW 27th Street

and there are many others just west if the airport off the 36 Street exit from the Palmetto Expressway. Please check reviews before booking.

You can also look in the Doral area.

If you find the Shark Valley Loop Road on Google maps, then "search nearby" you'll find the closest hotels.
