"Wouldnt stay there"
"Plus side: staff friendly. Restaurant service was very good as was the food. Good location downtown. Negatives: room was in bad need of renovation, cracked plaster in ceiling gave room a dumpy appearance. Bathroom had hairs stuck to walls a d ceiling... Gross. Room had no thermostat to control temperature. Wall mounted heating unit was very noisy and made sleeping difficult. heated the room to sauna like conditions or no heat at all. I had to get up every hour to either shut it off or turn it back on. Windows leaked cold air terribly. Tv was malfunctioning causing the picture to flicker uncontrollably. Underground parking fee of 12$ per night seemed excessive as well. Overall: poor value for the price. Location was not worth the poor sleep that night. Would have gotten a better sleep in my car."

"It is hard to get into as there is no allwy way or check in curb. The parking was full outside the hotel. No maps of the hotel and we could not find the ice machine. Also check out time was no where indicated."

"I would not reccommend this hotel for the price you pay. You also have to pay for parking which is not secure. It looks like it might have been nice ten years ago but there has been no upkeeping to it."

Richard from Abbotsford, BC CA rated Ramada Hotel & Convention Centre 5 out of 10 on May 05, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Noisy at night...probably due to the meetings and clients staying at the hotel. Room itself was good. Bathroom can use some updating. The floor of the tub look like it was put in in the sixties. Hook opn back of bathroom door looked as if it was ready to fall off. Get new shower heads installed so there is some pressure, rather than a weak drizzle."
