I have done a lot of traveling in my life and my stay at this hotel Saturday is the worst I have ever experienced. Everything started on a bad note when I walked in the hall from the parking garage (past the strip club less than a block away) to the hotel after checking in and noticed a foul smell.... More

The floor of our room seemed dirty like it needed to have the carpets cleaned, not just vacuumed. There were stains. The bathroom seemed clean, just run down a bit, and old. The staff was friendly.

Holy great food! We ate at the Factory City Gastropub restaurant, located on the lower level of the Ramada Inn, over the weekend and were very impressed by their diverse menu! So many of the options sounded good that it was difficult to settle on just one. I ended up getting the blue cheeseburger, which was excellent. You also can't... More
