We attended a high school wrestling tourney and stayed here. I read all the reviews before booking and was quite leery, but it was close to our venue. Although this hotel is a bit dated, from what I observed this hotel does take the Trip Advisor reviews seriously and it is quite obvious they are making constant improvements. Our bed... More

We just arrived home from a one-night stay at this hotel. We were there for business. There was some type of sporting event in town involving high school kids who were apparently unchaperoned and allowed to run up and down hallways, pounding on and slamming doors, yelling. Our room was next to the vending machine where they seemed to cluster... More

Was in town for training for my job, very important training. There were kids running around from floor to floor until about 12-1 every night and the hotel didn't do anything about it. The AC/Heat machine didn't work half the time and the room smelled awful.

I had reserved a room with 2 queen sized beds. When we got into the room, there was 1 king bed. My husband went down to the front desk and they said there were no more double bed rooms. They did change us to a queen bed with a sleeper sofa. I overheard several other people at that hotel say... More

Don't do it! The room was shabby and the entire property had seen much better days. You could hear everything that happened in the hallway and the rooms next to you. The sheets were threadbare! There was nothing good to say about this place.

Unable to get home due to weather conditions, I stayed the night at Ramada. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was tasty, and the staff as a whole were always smiling. I slept very well and the room was well-equipped. This time of the year I guess it's not busy there during the week, so... More

Restaurant service was really slow, claimed they were really busy even when there was only a few people in the restaurant. Not sure why it took so long to get service, to get refills on drinks, or even to pay the check. I am not surprised if they have people walking out the door without paying as slowly as a... More

Spent two nights here while attending a conference. The hotel staff is very friendly, professional and helpful, especially those who made sure our conference went smoothly. Our Ramada hotel room had two beds that were small doubles. The AC/Heating unit was old, hard to adjust the heat, and it was very noisy. The TV was a nice flat screen, but... More

This would be an adequate $55 a night hotel. Having paid over $80 (on priceline, sight unseen). I felt extremely foolish once I saw it. It is very old, the carpets are stained, the bathrooms weren't cleaned properly, the room temp was either really hot or really cold, etc. Front desk staff was nice and professional..but this place is just...
