"The incessant dripping of water from the roof (?) onto the room's air conditioning unit directly outside my window awoke me at 5am, 2 hours prior to my intended wake up time. The result was a rather poor sleep, and I will not be staying at Golden's Ramada Inn again if other alternatives present themselves."
Hotel review by guest is Positive
Catherine from Burnaby, BC US rated Ramada Limited Golden 8 out of 10 on May 19, 2006 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"This is a great stop for a decent sleep after driving for hours in the mountains, and plans for more the following day. We have stayed several times - the desk staff are always friendly and efficient. The place is packed at night - and quiet - full of exhausted travellers. There's a pool, a free computer in the lobby (and wireless internet access as well) and a decent free breakfast included. There are a couple of reasonable 'travellers' restaurants within walking distance too. Lots of gas stations. Yup, we'll go back."
