The last metro will be stopped at 23:00, but you still can try you luck there. If not possible, take a taxi instead.

I think you may consider City Convenient Chain Hotel which is in walking distance or Lavande Hotel (Wuhan Happy Valley Renhe Road Metro Station) which is 4 stops by metro to the station.
