I stayed at the Ramada in the Gaslamp district while in town for a conference with a colleague. The rooms were very quaint. We each almost had a separate room with a sink in each room and a full bath in mine. The staff was great and the rooms were kept clean during our stay. The location is super convenient... More

The hotel staff was incrediblly helpful and personable. The architecture of the hotel is very beautiful and antique, including an old fashioned elevator. The rooms with two queen beds were quite large and even had a door inside to create two separate bedrooms. The hotel is right in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter and about a 15 minute walk... More

First a few negatives: rooms are small, your window could open in to another apartments window. Even shower is small. This in the middle of geslamp and the street with a lot of clubs, and restaurants. Street is awake till early in the morning. The staff is very courteous and helpful. They dont have a big lobby or restaurant. You... More

The room we had was so small - it was basically filled by one queen bed. The bathroom was laughable...the shower was about 2ft by 2ft square with no... More

Nice hotel, nice staff. Everyone was very helpful and made our stay that much nicer. Would definetly go back. Love the rooftop viewing area at night. Old time elevators add a nostalgic flair to the hotel and the cafe next door has great food

We loved our stay at the Ramada in Gaslamp. The hotel is old but has so much character. The rooms are small but very clean and was big enough for two of us. The staff (front desk and valet) were always very friendly. The location is perfect for exploring gaslamp. We had a room that faced 6th avenue and we... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights, wasn't thrilled with it, staff not very helpful and quite miserable, although the valet parking boys were great. The room was very small and bed not very comfortable, shower was awful. The lifts were the worst I've ever been in, I appreciate that the hotel is very old but I'm sure... More
