I stayed at the Freehand last Memorial weekend, in a four bed, female-only, shared room. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bathroom (en suite) was fairly clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was quite good as well. The pool area was very pleasant and included a full bar. The place is great for having drinks in the evening,...

Ryan and Daniel are willing to do more than what’s required from them (even things that don’t fall into their line of duty).

I have traveled a lot and Freehand is one of the nicest places I've been. They have clean and comfortable rooms and good showers.

FYI: I decided to room here for my spring break solo traveling adventure I'll start with the positive aspects. First, they let me stay there though I was only 18 (I just turned 19).
