“Pleasant stay and good swimming pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Stayed 2nd time and noticed that the hotel class is good yet the staff is scarce and usually found running around. With the cleanliness in place the staff can be managed better.
Location is good and is traceable due to the CMDL building next to it. One can reach marina beach within 15 mins drive.

Stayed with family and was on a personal visit, tour of Tamilnadu and places around, Chennai was the start. I got a good deal at Ramada with breakfast inclusive and we had a pleasant surprise upon arriving there. They upgraded us to their newly done up rooms which was very nice. Place was bustling with activity, the hotel looked busy. Guest relations was efficient, took care of us quickly and we were explained all facilities. Hotel has a travel desk, we chose to hire a call taxi for local use and the hotel staff helped us find one. The environment in the restaurant I would say was friendly and service generally was at its best. The hostess was welcoming, chatted with us over breakfast, gave us hints on what to look for closer to the hotel, especially shopping etc. Our visit to Mahabalipuram was particularly an enjoyable ride and we carried some packed food from the hotel. Bar seemed a nice place with blue interiors, music was loud. Couldn't really spend much time there though as we were tired that evening. Full marks to the place and the team at Ramada

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor, great rooms!

This is my second trip to Chennai and my first stay at the Ramada. My three friends and I found the rooms to be comfortable, and the food and service good. We really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and their extreme desire to make the stay pleasant for us. I have no complaint! I will stay there again on my next trip.

Room Tip: Choose side with the swimming pool view.

Super stay on my visit to Chennai last month. The hotel just did perfect when it came to meeting my basic needs. Spacious room, comfy beds, free wi-fi and good internet speed as well. Boardwalk and the pool by its side was very relaxing in the evening. There are couple of choices when it gets to options for dining. Service is professional in a relaxed setting and I just love it that they give you the time and space you deserve after a busy work day. They had Rajasthani Food Festival happening at their Coffee Shop as well. That was good too. The buffet breakfast is something worth the mention, quite sumptuous buffet and tasty too. Happy I chose Ramada and will certainly recommend this place and be back soon.

This is not a new hotel. An old one called Comfort Inn Marina with a name change, thats all. A name change is not enough, unless you bring it up to the standards of what you want it to live up to. Right?
That does not happen here. Poorly trained staff, shortage of trained staff in most places, poorly maintained facilities, chipped furniture, stained walls, dirty upholstery, pathetic service, lack of senior staff to escalate are only some of the problems that haunt this place.
Wake up Ramada !

Decided to take a drive to Chennai along with family to meet old friends. Last minute travel plans as we have been putting it off for a long time. Got the reservation done through a friend in Chennai on the evening we left Bangalore. Arrived very late at night due to traffic snarls all around but we were well taken care on arrival even at an awkward 1AM. We woke up late and breakfast was still open at almost quarter past ten. Our waiter was cheerful, he brought us some fresh vadas served with hot sambar and chutney since I found them tad bit oily on the buffet. Otherwise there was plenty of choice on the buffet and we had a great start to our day. Our friends picked us up from the hotel and we spent the day on East Coast Road. Crocodile Park was a real treat, my son enjoyed it and on our return we were at Marina Beach when it started to rain. Quite tired when we reached the hotel, so we ordered room service - very prompt and food was to our taste. Late check out on Sunday afternoon was good. Absolutely enjoyed the trip, hope to return in 4 - 5 months.
