This was nice place for an overnight. Room was large but dark. Front desk personal was very nice. There was a common area with kitchenette and a coin laundry room. If you are looking for a no frill reasonable place to stay in Fort Lauderdale area, this is a good place for it.

We found this place online and so glad we did. It's a little strange at first because the property was once a hospital but they have done a great job renovating. Rooms were clean and tastefully decorated and the bathrooms are great for any one with a handicap. The staff was very helpful and friendly and if you're in the...

Recently stayed during Thanksgiving holiday to visit family in area. We found it to be a clean, decent place to stay for 2 nights. Could tell it was a hospital once but didn't bother us in the least. Felt secure as key card was required to enter our room wing. PROS: Quiet, room darkening shades, clean linens, plenty of towels,...

This property was rated 3 stars on the website I booked it, but I would not even consider giving it this. The property is a former county hospital that has been converted into a hotel/christian center of some sort. If you are not super religious, I would not recommend staying here. The property still very clearly resembles a hospital. In...

The Forum hotel started off a the perfect hotel for someone that just wanted to sleep, because it has no amenities, but it quickly turned into a nightmare! There was a party going on in the lobby and parking lot at 1 A.M., and the people were rude and obnoxious! The staff member on duty at the time was highly...

This hotel should be condemned. It is run down and ranned by liars who say they are christians, but you would never know it, cause it is not by their love. They did not exhibit any fruit of the spirit! I stayed there recently and had to change rooms 3 times before settling for a nasty room with bloody sheet...

Although the building is and lobby is impressive. This hotel leaves something to be desired. This is a converted hospital. There is no smoking or drinking allowed, but that did not bother my husband and me. We definately would not stay again for the following reasons. Our visit was 2 nights.
