Let me start by saying that I travel a lot. I usually stay at 3-star hotels (Marriott,Hilton, Residence Inn, Homewood Suites, Springhill Suites, Sheraton, and the like). It is true this is a converted hospital and we loved that for several good reasons. The rooms were spacious, the remodeling has happened very recently, I assume, since the furniture looks pretty...

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. The room cost 1/3 what a room near Fort Lauderdale Airport would have cost. Yes, we did need a car to get here, but it was only a 25 min drive and we planned to travel around the area on day trips anyway. The rooms were large with lots of drawer... More

This was the cheapest place we could find, and yet we got a huge room, which was upgraded to a suite. The place is used as a religious conference centre, so you cannot bring alcohol or cigarettes, and there are some religious posters. It used to be a hospital so you get the large rooms, huge hallways, and slightly smaller... More

Here goes: This building was an old medical center that was converted into a conference center/retreat. They have hotel rooms that they rent out to anyone. Pros: The hotel room itself is nice. Nice carpeting, comfortable beds and a Fridge, coffeemaker and microwave in each room. Very nice! The whole building is non-smoking (awesome) and no-alcohol allowed on the premises.... More

I know that you have been reading the reviews and been reading mixed ones that are all over the map. Predominantly it is polarized by two main negative things and two main positive things. Positive: 1) It is quiet 2) It is good value since it's cheap Negative 1) It is a converted hospital 2) It is a Christian retreat/conference... More

The Forum has elicited the most polar-opposite reviews that I've ever seen on Trip Advisor. Bottom line: it's NOT a hotel, but a retreat center - so don't expect a hotel. Think of it as a stay at an ultra-modern monatery. There's no character like those monasteries of Europe that offer great prices, spartan accomodations and peace and quiet. This... More

OK. First, it's a HOSPITAL, not a hotel. Don't let the moderate "renovations" fool you. It's a hospital. It FEELS like a hospital. Next, it's extremely fundamentalist Christian. Signs about God everywhere, creepy pictures of kids, and notices about the "Prayer power breakfast", etc. OH-- and you need to sign and swear that you won't smoke or DRINK ALCOHOL in... More

The ads for this place are completely deceiving and down right lies! They claim its walking distance to the beach.. its really about a 10 minute drive. There is absolutely nothing to do around this place. The area is beyond ghetto and rundown... luckily there is a ratty strip club right around the corner (great for the kids). Anyways this... More

I found this hotel on hotels.com. We LIKED the idea of NO alcohol and NO smoking. After years of traveling, my husband was thrilled with that, as he had to listen to drunks, arguments, and loud music at hotels in the past. We were not disappointed! Our room was clean and quiet, the staff very helpful, and we plan to... More
