It is in the middle of a residential area and the thermostat controls were difficult to operate.

Quiet Get-Away Space
Our stay at Higher Ground was just what we needed. We were there for a family emergency and needed some quiet and a good resting spot. Higher Ground was perfect for this. Would love to have time to explore the area. Loved the sitting areas in the facility. Room was perfectly clean. Beds were great.

Off the Grid
Office building turned into hotel. Pretty unique. Unique neighborhood as well. Quiet and comfy. The entrance is secured. So you have to buzz the desk to check in. Just press the button once, don't hold it in to talk with the desk. This displeases the desk attendant. After check in, they give you a code to punch in when you want to enter the building or outdoor courtyard area. Remembering the codes is a pain the butt. Overall, had a good experience.

Charm and convenience!
The location was perfect for visiting all the local Truman sites. The host/owner was most gracious throughout our stay and even shuttled us to the train station! The hotel was totally immaculate and breakfast delicious!
