“Took our money and RAN”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2007

Well... we were traveling with our pet , mini Dauschund, and when we got to the hotel we found out they don;t take pets but if we pay a 50$ deposit we could stay, so we paid the deposit then were asked to leave an hour later because of the dog, they also would not give us back the week we had prepaid for nor the 50$... We ended up paying for another hotel in th area, staff was rude and the room smelled of mold...

  • Liked — Bed was comfortable to set on...
  • Disliked — Room was musty and stunk.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2007

Our front desk manager was wonderful. Priceline had messed up our reservation, and somehow I was given a one bed room when I specifically requested a two bed room (family of four here). Ramada was not able to change the room, so the manager was able to talk to priceline about cancelling my reservation. She then gave me a discounted rate with the room I needed. The continental breakfast was great. They add a little extra for the weekends. The hallways were very bright and clean. Our rooms were also very clean, except the ceiling of our room had black stains on them, like from smokers or something. While the toilet was clean, the water in the toilet was not as clear, like maybe a little brown. Nothing that a little paint on the ceiling, and a blue clorox tablet in the toilet can't clear up. The pool is small, 4.5 ft, but great for kids with a little waterfall. We had a great stay for one night, and appreciated the micro and mini fridge. Oh, there was no phonebook or list of numbers for us to be able to call the front desk.

  • Liked — The front desk service
  • Disliked — The blacken ceiling spots

We stayed at the Ramada after coming back from Seaside because we were hopping on a flight the next morning. The room was dirty with stains on the carpet and dirt on the bathroom floor and in the tub. The front door to our room would not shut properly and the back door to the property did not automatically close.

This is actually not our biggest problem. We wanted something cheap and close to the airport. Our problem was that we paid $80 for this room instead of $53 like every other customer that stayed there that night because we booked with Priceline. We originally bid $50 for this room and the rate was not accepted until $80.

We had no idea Priceline who guarantees a low rate would overcharge by $30. When we called Priceline to complain, we were told there was nothing they would do because we did not call Priceline before checking in. The rates they post on their site are NOT the actual rates the hotels use. Spread the word!

Stayed August 2007
