"Good stay in the Ramada"
"Good: location convenient to a lot of chinese resturants and airport. Need to be improved: 1) Only one layer of window curtain. Prefer to have another thin layer so we can keep privacy while getting some lights. 2)Not every balcony has chairs. I had to take them from neighbour room which was empty. 3) Entry to car garage is challenge. The slope is steep, and I can not back my car for repositioning my car. I had to ask my wife to get out to swipe the card after I was short of reach. "

"I specifically booked here because I was told we could get an airport shuttle at 1AM. I simply had to cal from the airport phone. This was not the case. We had to spend $15to get a cab. Also the price online was different once we received the bill. I woul dappreciate some feedback and ideally a refund at least inpart to cover our lost expenses and time. thanks, Jeff 250.889.3343"

"The bedding just doesn't feel very clean so it doesn't feel very comfortable to sleep in. There's this smell that is not very pleasant in the room. The towels may need to be replaced since it's kind of old."

"The room is already too small and yet the carpet is so dirty. It would be better even the room is small as long as they will change the carpet. I upgraded my room to ease my disappointment. The rate at Best Western is much better compared to the rate of my upgrade on this hotel. The room at Best Western is much bigger and cleaner than any of their rooms. The desk clerk is not very pleasant to deal with."

"The Sunday morning, we hurried down as quickly as we could after we were showered and our baby breastfed. We were looking forward to grabbing a bite of the COntinental breakfast eventhough it was 9:25am. But the Sunday lady who was there said everything was put away, we got there too late. However, on the door, the sign read Breakfast from 6 to 9:30am. This really put us out because we were going to see homes with a real estate agent all day and started off the day having to hunt for a restaurant and then having to pay for a breafast to top it all off. We could have AT LEAST been offered croissants, muffins, coffees and jam to go, so we could eat in our bedroom... This is our on;y complaint. The rest was great."
