Reviewed 13 June 2016

Had a family member at Kobackers hospice within easy walking distance. Lovely little cabin in a park setting. Facility had kitchen with fridge and microwave. Comfortable living room with big screen TV. Separate bedroom with roomy bath. Very quiet. Everything was clean (to my standards which are pretty high).

Lovely walking trails abound with plenty of flora and fauna including otters in one of two large ponds. Lots of birds.

They provided a voucher worth $10 toward breakfast in the morning. I was expecting continental, but they had a short order cook who made me a fantastic omelet.

All-in-all, very pleased and would go there again.

Room Tip: We were in the Brown cabin. Very nice and quiet.

A priest friend & his brother stayed one overnight & were very comfortable there, since there is a queen size sleep sofa. The breakfast at the McConnell Heart Health Center was a nice additional touch.

Room Tip: Individual lodge, not hotel. walking path & work out facility. Walk to Riverside Hospital &am...

A colleague and I each rented one of the lodges since we wanted to stay close to the Bing Cancer Center for a training course. We were both very pleased with the spaciousness of the lodges and the overall cleanliness (had some concern about that when I read some of the other reviews). The bathroom was huge with the sink in a separate area from the shower and toilet. I particularly enjoyed the gas fireplace, both for the cozy feeling and the extra warmth it provided with the blower option. The kitchenette included a mini-fridge, sink, microwave, coffee maker, and dishes/utensils for 4. For a longer stay it would be nice to have a stove top/burner option, but this was fine for a short stay. The pathway and porches were well-lit all night, and parking was easy to find and close to the lodges. Wi-Fi was fast, free, and easy to access.

Check-in is at the McConnell Heart Health Center (which we didn't realize until going to the lodges first). At check-in, we were offered passes to the fitness center, onsite classes, and $10 coupons to use at the cafe and snack bar. The McConnell staff were welcoming and very helpful in orienting us to the campus. I would definitely stay here again and look forward to walking on the nearby trails in warmer weather in this wooded setting. Overall a great experience!

Had to change rooms x3. First room smelled so bad due to food left in fridge. Second room smelled trash was over flowing with opened bottled water sitting out. Third room they did not approve with security so we walked to the room in -10 degree weather carrying our stuff! And had to drive back to front desk to get keys activated again. After the person at the front desk told us she was over it and hadn't notifed security yet of us switching rooms. Worst stay ever! Remember as the person at the front desk told us "we are not a hotel"!

This is about our fifth stay here. We are here almost twice a year. Location and amenities are still excellent, but the windows need washing, the wooden blinds are very dusty and the carpet, particularly under the bed, needs a shampoo. I hope the cabins will get the attention they need soon.
