“Not So Hotwire”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This Ramada Inn could not have anticipated the suck@ss business of Hotwire, but the management's handling of the situation was haphazard at best, negligent and unresponsive at worst. There were two (2) rooms during this 3 night stay. I'll "rate" the 2nd room, utilized the last two nights.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights with two young children ages 1 & 3. The room was plenty big enough for all of us (including the pack n play). The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was easily accessible and well located. We will stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Stayed here on recent road trip. Older place. Very nice staff in both morning and evening.Good bathrooms w/ plenty of towels and San Fransisco brand toiletries. Roll away bed brought in within 10 minutes of request. Had a really good free breakfast. Had all the normal waffles, fruit, etc. Very large selection on cereal and hot biscuits and gravy. Plenty of good hot coffee and fresh juice. Not the Ritz Carlton by a long shot. Lots of things to update. But a very decent place with some very nice men and women working there at a discount price. Close to some good eateries including Dreamland BBQ which is world famous and very good.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

When I arrived at the hotel there were 2 employees behind the front desk, but apparently one was "new" or in "training." I had to stand in line for more than 15 minutes while the one knowledgeable employee helped the people in front of me. When I was finally waited on there was no apology for my wait. The carpet in the front lobby going up the stairs was stained. The door to my room was difficult to open. My room faced the parking lot on the 2nd floor and I could hear the traffic and conversations of anyone standing outside. The walls were thin and I could hear the people in the next room talking. The mini fridge made a loud noise and the television had poor quality on certain channels. I'm a huge sports fan and I couldn't enjoy watching the NCAA basketball tournament games! The bathroom did not have a vent fan, but there was sheetrock tape on the ceiling and no attempt to cover it up neatly The hotel appears really old with a bad attempt at remodeling!
