It's 4:22AM and I am sitting here wide awake, just waiting for daylight so I can get out of here! First, let me note that you would be wise to disregard any positive (or even neutral) reviews about this hotel, if only because there are many more reviews warning about how bad your experience here *could* be. I would argue...

Although the room was clean, it was hospital like and very sterile feeling. There is a no alcohol policy so you cannot bring any alcoholic beverages into the hotel and smoking is only off premise. This use to be a hospice hospital which was converted to a hotel.

After reading some of these reviews just now I'm horrified but honestly not what I experienced at all. Mind you not the most attractive place I've ever been the accommodations were quite sufficient. The man at the check in desk was prompt and courteous. The room we had was very spacious and clean. Bathroom was small but fine. Kinda a...

I actually stayed here a couple of times this month (December) because I was doing a cruise out Miami. I love this place. I was with a group of people, and the hotel was more than accommodating. Most people review the hotels by the look of the hotel, so let me start there first. The hotel itself is a little...

It's simple. Not luxurious at all. I saw that breakfast (which is something I don't eat) was quite plain. But I don't have anything to complain. It was what I needed for the short visit, and it delivered a good lodging experience. And the price: very affordable. I recommend it, if you're not too picky.

Hotel, which is a converted hospital, is overall a good value. It's owned by a faith-based charity that allows no smoking & no drinking ($250 fine if caught). Personally, that was a big plus, it's very quiet and private. It's set up exactly like a hospital with 2 "wings" per floor, so the old nurses station area has couches where...

Have to give it a 1 star since I got BIT BY BED BUGS. The place is very unique, it was a hospital back in the day. The room was HUGE, but it's a circle building, so the room is shaped like a wedge. The kitchen and the bathroom are on the small side of the wedge, making them quite...

Thank you for your review. We looked into your review and had no report of bed bugs for that time period, your name or email. However, we did have a report of room smell and on several occasions the staff offered to move the room and provide you with an upgrade. Each time the offer was declined. We apologize for...

I stayed here because my parents live next door at a continuing care community. I'd stayed a couple nites in the past and it was adequate, clean & quiet.

Thank you for the review and feedback. We hope that you will give us another try as we will do what we can to make things right.
