“disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I expected a lot when I selected a Ramada hotel for my stay. This visit was a complete disappointment and a shame to the Ramada name. The rooms looked like they hadn't been updated since the hotel was originally built. The beds were lopsided and looked just a notch above military quality. They were uncomfortable to say the least. And the three tiny pillows per bed were of no help. The towels didn't match, had holes, and were in horrible condition. The floor was stained and even the curtains had stains on them. There was only 3 outlets in the room which were all overloaded. I'm amazed there hasn't been a fire. Since the swimming pool is not closed off the entire hotel smelled like mildew/mold and made all the carpets damp. It triggered my daughters allergies every time we came in. The airconditioning was so outdated, I have truly never seen one like it, it had 4 settings: off, low, medium, and high. Seriously that was the temperature control for the room. The bathroom exhaust fan and heat light did not work. The bathroom door would stick if you closed it all the way. The shower had no real pressure, it would spurt out at you. One of the main hotel features that attracted me was the indoor heated pool with waterslide. Well the pool was not heated. The sauna didn't work. The pool and chunks of paint chipped off and floating around in it. The continental breakfast wasn't bad when there was food, it was often left unattended and you would have to hunt someone down and ask them to bring out more food or refill the juices. For the price I payed and the quality I received, I would have been better off camping. I will never stay at the Ramada in Salina, KS ever again and I will make sure to tell all my family and friends who live in Salina and who may visit Salina this.

The good: The staff. They were friendly, personable & efficient
The Bad: Everything else. This location is in a horrible state of disrepair. Moldy walls, peeling wallpaper, there was an everpresent 'pool closed' sign up, although when we asked about it we were told it was open and allowed to swim (for some baffling reason the sign stayed up throughout our stay). Too bad you can't move this great staff to another location, they don't deserve this place.
