“some better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This room was better than the night before, at least the floor was clean. The bathroom needs updated but we made it ok for one night. We reported the light broke and hanging down in the bathroom too.

We stayed at this Ramada because my daughter's softball team was playing at a local park. When we got inside of the room, we found that the trash can was full of trash from a previous guest. As we got further into the room, we observed that the wallpaper was bubbling off of the wall. There was also red fluids on the wall near the bed that resembled dried blood. The air conditioner grill was filthy and most of the grill was broken out. The small refrigerator was also filthy and the shelves were broken. The floor had not been vaccumed in some time. The bathroom seat was up and there was dried fluids (probably urine) on the floor around the commode. There were hairs all over the bathroom door, the shower and the shower curtain. The door to the room was very hard to open with the pass keys we were given. Also, you had to make sure that you pulled it behind yourself because it was hard to shut (very unsafe). I should note that there were lots of foot traffic on the grounds that appeared to be folks that did not live there. There is a sign that warns them that the inn has a crime watch. That really made me feel unsafe. The television was old and sometimes the picture would not show in color. We tried hard to find another hotel but had no luck and had to stay for two nights. On the second day, our room was not cleaned and we had to chase down the clerk to get fresh towels. A few days after we checked out, the manager called and asked how they could make it better. I gave her the above information. She offered to compt one of my days there but I refused. I didn't want anyone to think that my rating was for any gain. I just don't want to see anyone have to go through the same thing we did staying there.

Room Tip: There is no place in this inn that I would recommend.

We arrived late and they had been overbooked. They called the hotel next door and got me an upgraded room at the same price! Really liked the service!! The following remarks are from previous stays at this location!
