“Bucking the trend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The quoted rate with CAA card is the same as the trip advisor rate of $116.10. But for .90 more you can upgrade to a "business class" room on the second floor. I took advantage of this offer after sticking my head in a ground floor room that looked like it has last been decorated about the time Ramada flagged this t'other side of the river property eight years back. Face it this is an older property which means more wear and tear on staff and beds that have probably paid for themselves a thousand stays back, but its quiet and popular. Checked in at the end of a weekend and the grease high tide mark on the hot tub was off putting as was the far from crystal clear water in the pool. So stay but head upstairs and pay the extra buck for the upgrade. Great front desk and everybody's patient when you lose your key for the third time.

Room Tip: Carry a looney.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I immediately found the mini fridge tucked away in the dresser but the microwave was nowhere to be seen.
Other amenities such as iron and board, coffee maker, hair blower were readily available.
Missing also, was a breakfast but the hotel's own restaurant was available ($).
Perhaps being away from shops and restaurants is why they were not busy.
I stayed two nights and the area is very quiet.

Thank you for taking the tiime to post a review of our hotel and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and our restaurant! We are wroking towards having a microwave in every room and so fat we are halfway there....however, we do keep spares on hand so had you requested one, we could have quickly and easily installed one in your room! Please don't hesitate to ask next time!
Our hotel is usually quiet, even being as busy as we are, and thats usually a good thing for our guests who want a good nights sleep! Thanks again and hope to see you again!
