I want to start by saying that as an emassador's son I have been to the best hotels as well as the worse and have never experienced anything like this one. After a long day at Disney, we arrived at the hotel at 2am with a sleeping 5 year old and 2 one year olds. We had 3 rooms which... More

I came for an event at the convention. The hotel was convenient because it was by I-4. The hotel is average. But all things considering it was worth it. The front desk staff, especially Camlan, was amazing. She was extremely helpful. I appreciate her help.

There's also amenity fees per night that was a added charge. Amenitys?!!!! There was no hair conditioner, no towels for pool, gift shop was closed,... More

This Ramada hotel gives the chain a bad name. The entry area was decent but entering our room, we were engulfed by the musty stench of what I now know to be mold. Simply out dated and disgusting. The bathroom's fixtures were old, rusted and dented. Sink was stained and chipped. Mold on shower tiles. Ceiling was chipped. There were... More

I would avoid this hotel at all cost. I had reservations for two rooms, for two nights. Checked out early. The bathroom had a crusty old towel hanging on the shower rod, asked them to come back and clean they "did" come back and after returning to the room a few hours later the used towel was still there?! Called... More

Website is utterly misleading. Wireless available only in lobby. Door to balcony had been forced open so was broken, didn't latch or lock. TV didn't work. Room filthy. No towels by pool. Surly night desk clerk. Poor air conditioning. Breakfast buffet a joke with little on offer and food very poor quality. Surprise charge: "We're adding $5 a day, because... More

Avoid this hotel at any cost! Dirty, poor, lack of maintenance etc. Run away !!!! The room is dirty, dark, smells cigar (on non smoking room), tv is from century XX, air conditioner is noisy (and does not work). They charge additional $7 for the breakfast.

If I would've known the condition of this place I would've never booked the hotel. I knew from the reviews it wasn't the nicest place out there but it turned out to be completely disgusting. In one room there was a large black hair rapped up in one of the towels and I have blonde hair. In another room we... More
