I specifically picked this hotel because I have small children and I liked the shallow pool with kid activities to make it easier for them to play by themselves and not have to hang on to Mom and Dad the entire time. It's also somewhat heated (not bath water warm, but not freezing cold either). The pool deck is concrete,... More

The continental breakfast was a hit with our kiddos (9, 9, and 6). We all found something to eat. This hotel could use a refresher. New carpet, new lighting - everywhere, freshly painted walls and new decor in room. The hotel was ok, but just seemed run down and old.

Dear Dawn H., Thank-you so very much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad your children enjoyed our complimentary deluxe continental breakfast and equally glad you chose to stay with us during your most recent visit. I also wanted to let you know that we agree a freshen up is needed, that's why we remodeled 106... More

Our kids live in Aberdeen and we visit them about every other month. We usually rent a suite so that there is room for the kids to play. They love the swimming pool and would be disappointed if we stayed any place else. When the kids go home for the evening we hit the bar for the happy hour. Great... More

This hotel is clean and very friendly. It has everything you need for a nights stay and a good breakfast and restaurant. I had older girls and they enjoyed the pool but did think it could be a little deeper. The rooms were nice and clear. The hotel staff helped us with directions and welcomed us to the area. The...

Nothing bad to say about the Best Western, I have NEVER been let down by Best Western. Minerva's Restaurant, however, was way overpriced. It wasn't as bad as some, but it was generally the same class of food you would find at a Golden Corral. $27 for a steak (which I don't mind paying) conjures up the thought of a... More

Better hotel than anticipated. Room was large and clean. Towels and bedding were good. Only thing lacking in my room was a refrigerator which I found odd, given the huge number of families staying there. And there were many many kids but the way the bed was set, towards the parking lot, rather than the hall, I hardly heard any... More

Dear CSSnowshoer, I want to thank you for taking the time to post an on-line review. We're glad you found our rooms spacious, comfortable and quiet. We agree that the pool area is designed as a kid friendly space so on most weekends it is very busy. The hot tub in our pool area is more adult oriented. We do... More

Rooms were clean and front desk was very friendly. We were just passing through town and had a very nice stay. Rooms were very big. Restaurant was excellent as that had as much to do with us staying as any!

Recently stayed 2 nights at Best Western Ramkota Hotel. The hotel was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was very friendly and helpfully.
