The Bad
As mentioned above, the majority of reviews for this hotel were positive. However, there were some common complaints from reviewers about the decor, the parking and the elevators.

Although most of the comments regarding the room comfort was positive, several guests felt the decor was dated and the furnishings could be upgraded. And while the beds received good reviews, some guests felt the linen quality was poor and the blankets were thin.

Some guests had concerns about parking. They claimed that several oversized vehicles took more than one spot, making it difficult for them to find parking for themselves.

The elevators were too small, according to some reviewers. This made transporting luggage slightly difficult for these guests.

"Storm"

"Made a trip to Lethbridge for an appointment, glad that we picked the Ramada. Met by a helpful front staff that welcomed us and gave us directions around the hotel and the area.Rooms were clean and spacious. the windows had a section that opened so we could get fresh air in overnight. Restaurant was a bonus as we didn't have to go out at night once we were in, they also served a good continental breakfast in the morning. The bad part was having to leave the hotel and travel home in a storm. Should have stayed another day."
