I had heard about The Forum on Orbitz as well through another missionary and thought it would be a good place to stay. I was 100% wrong. We called from the Tri Rail station to see if there was a shuttle and was informed that there was none but a taxi cost $10. So we took a taxi there for... More

This hotel has many great qualities: good location, nice large rooms, great lobby, and the best thing is there price. This is an affordable hotel in a high priced, high gouging, penny pinching area of the United States. We don't need to be right on the beach, because we can drive to the beach and save $200/nightly while we take... More

The first room had a burned-out light bulb in the bathroom. There was a public computer on the floor that didn't work. The phone next to this computer also didn't work. Instead of fixing the light bulb, we were moved to a 2nd room that had a strong vomit smell. I would not visit this hotel again.

I am surprised at the negative reviews on this place - they are totally unwarranted. The place is clean and tidy and the staff are efficient and helpful. The only thing different about this place is it lacks an identity. Its a conference centre, religious ministry and hotel but this isn't a problem at all. Our room is large and... More

Please, stop the negative reviews, they're unwarranted. Do you need to or want to pay for a lot of overhead,ie: spa, bar, restaurant? This place is NOT for you. As a business traveler, YES, It's perfectly fine or short family trip. Bottomline, it's clean, has modern room amenities and is well maintained, The staff are exemplary and the FREE breakfast...

I sucked this one up but have learned a valuable lesson. Do not stay here. And yes this was a hospital and looks like it when thou get off of the elevator. OMG this place needs to be shut down by the Florida Health Department. Might be a good place for the homeless or close to it. Couldn't turn your... More

Just back from here it was a nice stay clean really big room nothing fancy and no issues that some of the other reviews stated. If your hoping to have a elegant five star hotel experience then go and pay five star prices somewhere else because this place is not for you.

When we checked in, we were surprised at the comfortable quarters. The single king sized bed was one of the most comfortable beds I had ever slept in. Plain furniture but adequate for storage. Small shower stall but water was strong and effective.

I booked a room over the phone, easy and quick, and was able to check-in the same day. The front desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area when helping me with directions. The beds were comfortable and the blackout shades made it easy to snooze, even well into the afternoon. The free breakfast had a decent selection, but... More

This "hotel" used to be a hospital 20 years ago and still looks like it. It has all the coziness of a 1970s Nursing Home. My biggest complaint was there was NO HOT WATER IN THE SHOWER! I let it run for 15 minutes changed the handle from left to right and it was still ICE COLD.I moved the bedside... More
