“Torrance CA Ramada Review Nov 21 ~ 25, 2012”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Bad:
1. Fee for pets was a surprise. The verbiage on Southwest Airline booking was not clear. And, it was not mentioned again on confirmation email. $20 per pet per night is high.
2. Broken bed. Once notified, management provided a new room.
3. Shower head. The shower head looks nice, but sprays wider than the tub.
4. Flaking paint. The paint above the shower is water damaged.
5. TV remote. The cable service and TV were not integrated well enough and the large universal remote confusing. Had to unplug the power to reboot the system.
6. Warm refrigerator. The refrigerator was nice, but it was not cold enough.
7. Breakfast. Lousy. Hot/Cold water available outside the door at the water cooler. No decaf coffee. The only fruit was apple. Stale bread, stale pastries. The bagel didn't fit in the popup toaster.
8. Wifi Internet. On the slow side but workable. The log-in process is tedious. The codes provided expired half way through the stay without notification.
9. Computer in lobby. TOO SLOW TO USE.
10. Noise. The foot steps up stairs went on all night. The TV next door was audible.
11. Lighting. There was only one overhead light and it was in the far corner.

Good:
1. Staff. Very nice and courteous. Did what they could to help us out.
2. Pet friendly. Poop bags, grass patch, laminate floors. Would be even better if grass area were enclosed so pets could be off leash.
3. Furniture. Simple but functional furnishings.
4. TV programming. Good cable service.
5. Location. Fabulous.

It may seem like I'm being pretty negative in my review, I actually appreciated the stay here. The location for us on this trip was great, the people who worked there were great. There just needs some tweaking to make the hotel better overall. I would give a 3 out of 5 for the overall rating. If I didn't have to pay an extra 50% for the pet fee, this would have been a very nice value, even with the lousy breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The last time I reviewed this motel I only gave it 2 stars. My 4-star rating this time is based on value. First off, they got everything right this time. The room was clean and updated. It had new furniture, a flat-screen TV with many channels, the bed was comfortable, the water hot and the room was very quiet. The outside had a fresh coat of paint and the grounds were well cared for. This appears to be a family operation and they obviously care about their customers. Very friendly and knowledgable front desk staff. No, this is not the Ritz, but the value you get for the price is outstanding.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room in the back building. It is very quiet there.

For the price, this hotel worked well for me. It was close to the hospital, clean, and very quiet. The front desk was helpful, free Internet access, free breakfast. If you're not looking for a luxury hotel, but want clean and quiet, this is the one.
