I don't even know how to start. Unprofessional front desk attendants - very stand-offish and impersonal. As a Christian I had excited about the "Christian hotel". But it felt cultish. Church services on the same floors as the hotel rooms, guarded by men standing by the doors in the hallways. The building was old and hasn't been remodeled. And it...

If you want a horror movie all your own, check in here. This is the most disturbing place I have ever stayed, and I have been all over the world. It's a converted hospital but they don't tell you that. Only one floor is used as a "hotel", and you don't have an idea what you are getting into till...

My husband saw this online and thought it was a great deal. We get there and it looks like the building was a previous healthcare facility(assisted living or detox); which it was not disclosed on their website. At check out it was confirmed by a staff member that the building was a hospital at some point. The rooms were not...

I had the chance to stay at this hotel 4 nights in February 2017. The hotel is very well located right next to the interstate 95. Rooms are quite big, with standard equipment and a very big king size bed. The mini fridge isn't so mini, but is not daily restocked. In the room you have access to a flat...

Rooms were clean . Good for a short stay. Quiet secure and convenient close to highway. Microwave and refrigerator in the room and a nice mini lobby or gathering area outside the rooms. They also allowed us an earlier check in. Staff was courteous and very helpful. Would stay here again.

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.

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...
