1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I expected more from a Ramada Inn. This hotel is in bad need of updates and the atmosphere is dedidedly dirty throughout. The rugs are abysmally dirty and my room had the appearance of a run down motel 6 room. I had to change the first room I was scheduled to stay because the bathtub faucet head was constantly leaking, hot water at that as well. It was surprising they would have even attempted to rent it out because housekeeping would have certainly had the sense to notify maintenance that it was need of repair. Breakfast was also very average, mediocre food and cold potatoes. If I hadn't been as tired as I was I would probably have just complained ot get my money back. Overall a very disappointing stay.

This hotel is badly in need of an update throughout. Room was just ok, bathroom was outdated and well used. Two of the towels had stains. The restaurant is old and needs to be completely redone. Elevators smelled musty
Staff was only positive experience here....friendly people.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed one night at a reduced rate and I'm glad I didn't pay more!

Pool was closed, but you could arrange for (schedule) a "convenient" shuttle to a sister hotel's pool 8 minutes away if you wanted to. We chose not to... you just want to go down to a pool to veg and come back up, not have to plan and schedule.

Room was fairly nice if small. Bed was excellent and linens smelled fresh! The hot breakfast was nice. The dinner the night before in the Ramada Grille was another story... EXTREMELY slow service ... 45 minutes to get our check, but at least we got food in that 45 minutes unlike the 3 other tables that were there! I wouldn't eat there again even though the food was good.
