The hotel is primarily for pilgrims to the Santa Casa, and it feels like you are in a monastery. The room I stayed in was tiny - room for a double bed and small desk only, with a bathroom to match and a plastic shower I didn't try to use. Do not even try to eat in the restaurant - totally inedible food. I lasted one night, then moved a bit down the coast to Civitanova di Marche - right on the Adriatic and much more suited to American tastes. However, San Gabriele is probably the closest hotel to the cathedral, and has a great rooftop view of the distant Adriatic, the town, and the countryside.
