We were in Spirit Lake for a wedding and spent two nights at the Ramada. The room was fine (clean, bed comfortable), the water was hot, the breakfast OK (no fresh fruit). Really nothing wrong but there also wasn't anything that stood out to give this a better than average rating.

There were 7 families ranging from 70 to 6 months of age that decided to get together on January 2, 2016. The hotel staff was great, they were friendly and very accommodating to our large group. The teenagers and younger ones enjoyed the pool. Tables and chairs were around the pool allowing for adults to watch the kids and talk.... More

Thank you so much for your comments for our hotel. It is fun to watch a family make new memories. There is nothing more fun then watching a group of kids playing in the pool. We thank you for your kind words and look forward to your next visit when you are in the area again. More

We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable, with everything just as we expected it to be. Friendly and helpful staff, good location, reasonable rates - perfect combination. Very fast wi-fi, too!

Rooms were very nice, service was great, but than again, there was only 3 people in the whole hotel, so service should have been great.

This was a nice, clean place. I was traveling solo on business, and I'm always a little nervous about staying somewhere unfamiliar. This hotel was well-located, within minutes of various food options, and the room was spacious and clean. The staff was also very nice and helpful.

Great staff. Only comments I would make is the breakfast room was too warm and there should be another blanket on the beds. We luckily had a "bad weather" blanket in the car which we used each night.

If you have kids I don't recommend this place. It seemed every couple hours the staff was beating on my door complaining about my kids, once even after they were asleep. When there was several other rooms that had families with kids in the same hall. I felt singled out and picked on by the staff. I don't plan on... More

We do try and keep the hotel accommodating for all guests. If we have complaints from other guests we do ask the families to hold it down for noise. We do try and please all guests that stay at our hotel. We have a lot of families stay at our hotel and have always been welcome. More
