I stayed here a couple of months ago when the new staff were still getting used to the change from Raddison to Motel 6. My Room was excellent with a Micro wave, Refrigerator, Ironing board and iron and a hair dryer. The TV has a large selection of channels and the bed is comfortable. There us a good sized table...

This motel was once a Ramada and was clean and still has the nice furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and I had a nice chair to sit in and a table for my paperwork. The room is nicely appointed, with plenty of storage a fridge and a safe for valuables. There is free WiFi and it is close to... More

I am honestly not someone who would complain on any website. However, when something is truly wrong, I believe something must be said. This motel misrepresents itself on hotel booking sites as the Ramada Inn including a free continental breakfast and nice photos. However, it's actually been purchased by Motel 6 but beware because it is a dirty, poorly run... More

I chose this hotel because it was conveniently located for my business. The room was very clean but tired looking. There appeared to be a lot of renters on the property. The only vending machine I found had only candy and water, no soda. The grounds were littered. The location was great. Only a block away from the Light Rail... More

Half residence place/half Motel. When I arrived, several rooms had their doors propped open and people were loitering/standing in the doorways and on the balconies hanging out. People were coming and going all night. Left for my flight at 4:30a.m. and there were still people just hanging around outside their rooms (room doors open to the outside.) Didn't see anyone...

Totally unappealing from checkin to checkout. Even the vending machines in the lobby are broke. Our room smelled like cigarette smoke. The room's linens appeared to be designed in the 80s but were clean. Cleanliness was the only bright spot in this totally depressing hotel. Do not stay here. Next time I'll pay more to stay closer to town in... More

When we arrived I had requested a non-smoking room, we noticed we ended up with a smoking room so I was not too happy about that. When we arrived in the room, the room was very dirty, soiled floors, black tub, dried up spaghetti on the floor and carpet. When I went back to the front desk to complain we... More

This hotel is no longer a Ramada. When we checked in we were informed that it was sold to Motel 6 and that they no longer would be providing the complimentary breakfast service. They did provide a $10 discount on the room price, however, we were never contacted prior to our arrival and notified of the changes. The staff was... More
