Hi. we stayed at this hotel as it's a "partner hotel" with Legoland, CA and we needed something on a budget. Well, let's start by saying that I didn't mind that it wasn't fancy or new as long as it was clean, which our room and the pool were both clean. It didn't smell funny nor did I find anything... More

The staff was great and helpful. The hotel and the room was clean. The room had a tiny and cutie little kitchen. I mean a stove, oven, sink, microwave, and a decent size refrigerator. There is only room for one person and only two feet of counter space. But it was nice to come home form Legoland and eat dinner.... More

We called ahead because we arrived into town early and they had our room ready so we were able to check in at around 2:30. The front desk guy was nice. However, from that point forward it was awful. Normally Ramada is a pretty reliable brand. However, this was just bad. Taking the elevator up to the 2nd floor was... More

Let me spare you the trouble. This place is terrible! It smells terrible and musty and it's old and run down. Even the elevator was dirty and run down. It was a nightmare because I made the reservations thinking I was on the Ramada Website and it turned out I was on a third party hotel finder website and there... More

The room is falling apart. One bedroom door was coming off the hinge and did not close. Air conditioner in one bedroom was broken and could not open the window. The room has kitchenette but they are not functionable. Dish packs you have to get from the front desk. Dish pack came with bent forks and rusted can opener and... More

I apologize that we did not meet your expectations. The hotel is under new management and we have begun to make significant changes to the hotel. Just recently all carpeting and sofa beds were replaced. We also replaced all pool furniture. We will continue to improve the hotel and I am sorry that we feel short during your stay. More
