This was one of the worst hotels that we have visited. It needs work; it's old and tired and in a bad state. Plus, it's not particularly clean. Our room had a bathroom door that's base was falling apart. The sheets were wrinkled and the bedskirt was askew. The windows were filthy and that was a pity since we had... More

Dear Hellie69, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry your stay was anything less than excellent. I have already addressed the wrinkled sheets and bed skirt issue with my executive housekeeper as this is completely unacceptable. I am so sorry about this. With regards to the exterior paint, we actually started a fully repaint... More

Headed to the Gulf Coast following 4 nights at Disney. We booked 2 rooms (one for us and one for mother in law) despite the mixed reviews because my parents had already booked at the hotel. We checked in late and the 2 rooms were nowhere near each other despite both booking together and making the request ahead of time... More

While there were a couple of things that could have been a little cleaner about the room (dusting furniture, and changing out a bedskirt that had some mildew on the side) overall, this is in a great location, and was a very comfortable room, with great front desk assistance.

We came down for a billiards tournament. State league. Check in was great. All service was sub part except the patio bar. At the end of the Friday night tourney, we wanted to have a drink or two at the bar. Last call was 45 min later. They closed the bar. The bartender/Barback was rude and I questioned him on... More

Dear Mounrast, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am so sorry about the occurrence at the bar. I am the general manager and owner of this property and I know for a fact that I never kicked out anyone from the hotel or tiki-bar during the pool tournament. Your entire tournament was extremely well behaved... More

My husband and I found a deal on Groupon for Ramada Sarasota. After we purchased our Groupon we thought it might be a good idea to read reviews. We read some pretty sketchy reviews and we really weren't sure but we were relieved walking into our room. It was clean. Sheets were new. It smelled clean. Bathroom was clean. Had... More

We were in Bradenton on business. We stayed at the Ramada right by the SRQ Airport. Our room was clean and had modern amenities. The staff was friendly. The Tiki Bar and restaurant was great. Jen the bartender was really cool made great drinks. It was nice being on the canal with all the boats. Would stay there again without... More
