Hotel staff is awful. Refused to give my wife a key to our room. We left and went to a respectable hotel.

Stayed for one night, staff couldn't do anything with out permission from management, only contactable by email. difficult to cancel stay.

First, let deal with the elephant in the room: the owners are presumably Christians and smoking/drinking is not allowed. When you get past that, you have an awesome hotel at a great price: - Staff. Extremely welcoming and available from day 1. From the guys in the lobby to the cleaning ladies, everyone was nice. Our best meal during our time here came from a recommendation from the staff. - Amenities. The rooms are very big. For a New Yorker, this much space is a delight. And we got an iron table, iron, a fridge, a microwave, AC, TV and a safe. Did I mention free parking? - Breakfast. Boiled eggs, pancakes, cereals, fruits, coffee, juices, bread and a few pastries. It's not a 5 star hotel kind of breakfast but it's definitely great value for the price. - Internet. Free wifi fast enough to allow me to watch some TV on my computer. This is as good as it gets. - Location. The only "negative" in the sense that there's not much around the hotel, at a walking distance. But when you have a car and can drive to nearby beaches and restaurants, this is really nothing. So, not only I recommend the place, but I'd definitely go back there in the future.

It was nice. I asked the lady at front desk to bring up another towel she said she'd see if she could and that annoyed me but other than the staff, it's nice.

DIDNT EVEN STAY. STAFF WAS BEYOND RUDE THE SEOND WE ARRIVED! SNOTTY AND RUDE, STIL TRYING TO GET OUR MONEY BACK AND IT'S ALMOST BEEN 2 WEEKS. ALL YOU COULD HEAR IN THE LOBBY WERE KIDS SCREAMING FROM THE DAY CAMP THAT IT'S CONNECTED TO. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HOTEL ITS A DIALYSIS CENTER. SMELLED LIKE KIDS AND HOSPITAL FOOD.

this hotel is in the same building and apparently owned by a non-profit org, which is ok. room was good size, cheap non-HD TV. It was clean but everything in the room must have been bought at Walmart, very cheap. Bathroom very small, tiny sink, shower controls were installed backwards. Cheap sheets were worn out with thread bare holes, must have been bought on sale at Walmart. Blanket and bedspread very cheap material. Breakfast was ok as it was continental, hard boiled eggs, eggo waffles, cereal, fruit, yogurt, coffee was ok. Hotel staff ok but didn't seem to care much about their job. Location good with lots of free parking. On check-in, had to sign a paper about no smoking (normal) and a second paper agreeing to no alcohol (not normal). This should be stated on Orbitz.

Room was old and not well lit. Bed was very soft and everything showed a lot of wear and tear.

The TV reception was terrible. The breakfast was disappointing. The shower felt like a tomb.

It was a great value for a late arrival and well lit. It is an old hospital converted to a hotel, so just understand that. Other than that it was pretty cool and clean for the price compared to all the other super chains.

Unable to check in early, felt like a conference center

This place used to be a hospital and it shows. Wide corridors and the room you will get used to be a patient's room. The room is very large and modern and even though the place is close to the freeway, it seems very quiet. Not that many channels on the TV, though. Internet in the lobby is very slow.

This hotel is a business office and high rise hotel. It is christian based more like a hostel. No alcohol or smoking . Free grab and go breakfast. Nothing fancy 4miles from the beach.

Bathroom was filthy. Sink full of hair. Shower had precious guests' used soap bar and leftover shampoo. Breakfast was bad.

My wife and I got off out fight and went straight to the beach, then to the hotel. We were greeted nicely, had to sign for the no alcohol policy, then headed to our room. Showered and went out to dinner. Returned and asked the man at the desk for additional towels in the morning. The next morning, no towels. Went to get breakfast, still no towels. Went to front desk, no one there. A sign tells you to call a number. I call, 'Towels will be right up." 45 minutes later, not towels. Try to call from room phone, it was for decorative purposes only. Go back to the front desk, the sign is still there. I walk around until I find housekeeping and knock until I get someone with towels. The room felt cheap. It is oddly laid out because it was a hospital, but that is not a problem. There was only one other customer in our section, but we were right next to each other.

After reading dozens of reviews about the Christian-run, hospital converted to hotel/conference center, I was expecting "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest nightmares. What I got was a run down room in an unusual setting that I will not be going back to.

I read all these bad rating prior going; therefore, my expectation were very low so my experience were okay more than I expected. Maybe that why it wasn't that bad in my opinion. Also, culture play a big part of expectation. I did not expect luxury for the price. Just a place to crash for business.

Best value for the buck! Continental breakfast with good choice, including fresh fruits.

INEXPENSIVE HOTEL TO STAY THE NIGHT BEFORE A CRUISE OUT OF FORT LAUDERDALE

large rooms, minimal amenities - better than bare bones - good value

It is a very old hotel especially inside needs an upgrade of almost everything. It seems okay from the outside and lay out of the hotel but the room was so tiny and beds and pillows are not comfortable at all. Needs more room for wardrobe, not enough space if you stay 3-4 people. Breakfast was also so poor and not tasty. The food was stale.
