This hotel would have received VERY GOOD review as on some points they were: breakfast was plentyful and met our family of three's needs: coffee, juices, boiled eggs, breads, bagels, muffins, milk (three to choose from) and waffles. Pool area is also nice (pool was warm/comfortable). Bearded Clam had daily drink specials which was nice to enjoy poolside in a... More

This hotel was not what I expect from a Ramada. It was listed as a 3 star hotel, but had dirt and litter in the hallways, dirt in all corners of the room, and just generally a very seedy air to it. For example, rooms in the front of the buildings had overturned furniture and knotted-up curtains. Also the outside... More

Hello WoolyTwo, Sorry to hear that you felt our hotel was in disrepair. We have housemen who continually clean the grounds, so the things you listed about dirt, litter, and disrepair are very surprising to hear. Also, the only reason a room would have overturned furniture would be if we were doing renovations in the room or something of that... More

We booked one night at this hotel as part of our driving trip to Naples. We arrived late after a long day of travel to find a rundown motel in the worst part of town. Upon arrival we knew we did not feel comfortable or safe staying at this Ramada. it had outside cooridors and was on a busy street.... More

Dear Review Readers, This guest was refunded the full amount of their stay and allowed to cancel with no penalty. The hotel would never withhold money from a guest that arrived and did not want to stay. Obviously, we disagree with many of the points that this traveler made.

We had stayed here awhile ago and remembered the fabulous time we had at the tiki bar/Bearded Clam Restaurant. Got there very early since hubby had a golf match...I just wanted to get some sun. Room wasn't ready, but Olivia at front desk was very cordial and suggested I partake of their continental breakfast. Quite a variety of breakfast items... More

We stayed in the 600 building. It sucked. We found leftover beer in the freezer, dirty dishes behind the fridge, someone else's dirty socks and a bunch of rotten fruit and garbage under our beds. Our room was also missing an alarm clock and ice bucket. We had roaches in our bathroom and when I contacted the front desk for... More
