"We quite enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The location was perfect for what we needed. The carpet could have been cleaner. The only thing we could have used was a fridge."

"Absolutely worth the price you pay for the rooms!!"
"The room was clean. When we arrived we had prompt service from customer service rep and we were upgraded to a non-smoking room for a small fee. The breakfast coupons were ok, they should have enough coupons for the number of guests staying in the room. Everything else was quite good."

"Rooms were very nice although we stayed on the 2nd floor and the windows were so high up that you could not see out of them. There was no fridge or microwave either. The resturant in the hotel was ok but very pricey. There were no other resturants within walking distance."

"Our vehicle was stolen right out of the hotel parking lot while we were sleeping. So that has sort of turned me off this particular hotel."

"I had far higher expectations for the Ramada, a hotel with a universally recognized name. We had numerous problems with our room keys, our phone didn't work and even after incidentals were requested we still could not use any of the services provided. It took four trips down to the front desk to resolve these issues. The front desk people were cordial, but not overly friendly or apologetic for the inconvenience. However, they did provide free breakfast vouchers when asked. In a hotel such as the Ramada, I don't believe that I should ever have to leave my room unless I want to. Not because I'm lazy, but because if I'm on a holiday or even a layover, I should be able to pick up the phone and get what I want."

"The elevator was ridiculously slow, there was no more hair dryers left when it said there was a hair dryer in every room, check in took a very long time and the staff seemed confused, check in was at 3pm and we arrived at four and they said that we would have to wait until out room was cleaned."

"Listed on the web site as having a pool, but there is no pool. This was one of the main reasons we booked it was so our kids could go swimming."

"Smoking room is a bit run down; non smoking room old and needs a face lift but I think some of the rooms were renovated; not mine."

"Free parking and free breakfast made the price acceptable. There wasn't a fan in the bathroom (in the two rooms I saw) - so after a shower the mirrors were steamed up."
