Overview
Located just south of the Trans-Canada Highway, the Ramada Inn & Suites is popular with road travellers who require a centrally located hotel with recreational facilities (pool with waterslide, hot tub, fitness centre, etc.) and easy highway access.

This non-smoking hotel has 101 air-conditioned guest rooms, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a coffeemaker, a desk, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer. Standard rooms offer one king or two queen beds, while rooms with kitchenettes, sofabeds, and fireplaces are also available.

The hotel offers a heated indoor pool with a waterslide, a hot tub, a steam room, business facilities, a fitness centre, and a meeting/conference space. Pets can stay for an additional $15 per pet per night and parking is free. Accessible rooms are available upon request.

A free continental breakfast is offered daily to all guests, while nearby restaurants include O'Shea's Eatery and Ale House (a 3-minute walk north), and Ricky's All Day Grill, which can be found about 5 minutes southward on foot.

Kinbrook Island Provincial Park can be found 20 minutes south by car and Dinosaur Provincial Park is roughly a 55-minute drive northeast. Oasis Theatre (the local cinema) is roughly a 4-minute drive south of the hotel, while Brooks & District Museum is approximately a 5-minute driving away. Medicine Hat Airport (YXH) is about 1 hour southeast. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's rooms, location, and staff.

The hotel's rooms were praised by many reviewers. They described them as spacious, clean, and beautifully appointed with comfortable beds. Guests also found their rooms well-equipped, making reference to the included mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers.

Several guests were pleased with the hotel's location. They found it close to local events and restaurants, the Trans-Canada Highway, and one lodger remarked the hotel was an "easy drive from Dinosaur Provincial Park".

Many patrons complimented the hotel's customer service and staff, who were characterized as friendly and hospitable.

A handful of reviewers mentioned that they enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. There were some that disagreed, but of those that mentioned the breakfast the majority seemed to like it.

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them, which included the Wi-Fi signal and the size of the breakfast area.

A few guests were disappointed with their Wi-Fi reception at the hotel. They described the signal as not working at all, or as slow and unresponsive.

The breakfast area was reported as being too small by a couple reviewers. One guest recalled having to eat in the lobby because of the lack of provided seating during the morning rush, which they found to be inconvenient.
