We were skeptical about this hotel from reading all the bad reviews on this site, but decided to give it a chance. We had stayed in a hotel in London which got mixed reviews from Tripadvisor, and that turned out to be great.
The outside of this hotel needs a lot of work. The pale red that Ramada paints their hotels shows age very well, and the sign on the building was in disrepair. The lobby is very nice with a computer with high speed internet for our use. The front desk personnel were very helpful and friendly.
Aside from the outside, the hallways were the other negative about this hotel. A coat of paint, some air fresheners, new carpet and more lighting would go a LONG way here. When we arrived, we saw the outside, checked in, and then got to the hallways and were very disappointed.
The rooms however are very nice. It seems as though the hotel is beginning it's renovations in the rooms. The beds were clean with new mattresses. Coffee maker in the room as well as nice clean showers and bathrooms.
The pool area is definitely the highlight of this hotel, as evidenced by the pictures submitted by the hotel. This was the first pool-side tiki bar that I have ever seen actually be open. The pool was clean, as was the spa, and there were hammocks throughout the area.
Overall, the hotel is really what you pay for. It is not a resort by any means, but you can only expect so much. I definitely do not think all the negative reviews are warranted.
