A very nice, comfortable hotel with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The indoor pool is, in reality, a small waterpark with slides and other park activities for the kids. And, there is a nice hot tub to soak in while watching the children play. The outdoor pool is large and great for the adults to escape the kids. My... More

When I first walked into the lobby I thought, wow this is really fancy! When I got to my room I was like, oh. The glamour of the lobby is kind of misleading. The room is fine, nothing special. I have stayed at Best Western Pluses that have been much nicer. Everything was clean for the most part and I... More

Thank you for taking time to share your experience. The televisions, fridges, microwaves are all investments this last summer to mirror the lobby, restaurant and lounge. We'll get there! As for the meeting room, often we are following the request of the meeting planner, but we surely could have adjusted upon request. We do hope to see you again! Jan... More

The Ramkota is kind of off the beaten path (good or bad, you decide). It is not far from the airport or the fairgrounds, but not next to either one. Situated in an industrial part of town, it is mostly surrounded by warehouses and a couple smaller motels. That being said, the Ramkota is just off the interstate, and for... More

Our family stayed three nights and my wife and I were fairly impressed. The thing that really stood out for us was the food from the in-house restaurant was actually really good. We ate lunch at the bar (burgers) one day and had room service (pizza & wings) for dinner on another night then had breakfast on our last day.... More

We were down in S.F. for 3 nights for a family reunion. The rooms are nice, but small and somewhat crowded. The restrooms are tiny. The drawers for the armoire/Entertainment center where broken, so we didn't use them. We were pleased with room-service. The food was good and was brought up quickly. We did however have breakfast the following day... More

My kids kept my husband in the waterpark for several hours each day we stayed here. I love the fact that the pool in walk in and goes to 3 foot. Both of our toddlers had a blast and we felt safer with them in such a shallow pool. There is a mushroom fountain, a frog slide, snail slide, water... More

We spent one night here after a very long day in the car with a 12 year old boy and a 14 year old girl. The desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. The kids went to the pool and we were happy to sit in the pub and enjoy a couple of drinks while they swam. We did not... More

At check-in, there were two clerks at the desk. The gentleman clerk was helping the other customer, and the lady clerk was on a computer and after an initial "I'll be right with you", she totally ignored me as I waited. After several minutes of waiting, the gentelman finally checked me in. The lady never looked up again. Since when... More
