We stayed in one of Brooks 1st floor furnished apts. We were there for 15 nights while my husband had heart surgery at the Cleveland clinic. The apt was close to the clinic, 7 or 8 mins, just as promised. The home was very clean and the beds comfortable. The apt. had everything we needed for our time there. The homes are old and packed in tight. I never felt nervous being there alone. Brooks has done a nice job making them warm and inviting. I would definitely think you should consider one of his homes over a hotel. After a long hospital day, It sure was nice to come "home" to a place that felt like ours.
