@kjmahoney the Gift of Life is a great place to stay. You need to tour it before you can stay so you can learn the rules and see if it's a good fit for you. After that just let them know when you will be there and if it's not full you will have a room. If they happen to be full, they will contact hotels in town on your behalf too get you a discounted room. We've only had to do that once in all the times we stayed.
The people you will meet there become like family. It's great to talk to people that are walking a similar journey as you. I highly recommend giving it a try.
