We booked the Ramada through a reasonable priceline bid. Apparently when I placed the bid, I chose only 2 adults and not 2 adults & 2 children, which prompted the reservation to be for 1 queen-size bed. Upon checking in, the front desk indicated they would have to charge us more for 2 double bed room and we'd have to take up the additional fee with Priceline. We were able to respectfully work this issue out and were not charged the additional fees.
This hotel accepts animals, which is where our room seemed to be located on the first floor. If you don't like dogs or being in the middle of a dog rumble, then make sure to ask about that.
The room had a musty odor I could detect, but my family didn't seem to notice or care about it. The room itself was quiet, clean & fairly decent size - somewhat small for four of us - but still a fine size. The bathroom was also clean & average sized, had no working fan & the toilet broke on 1st use. The staff had it taken care of right away while we were out at the beach. They called our room after we returned to make sure it met our needs.
A complimentary buffet breakfast with self-serve hot and cold food was offered & a nice coffee bar was available all day. We thought we saw snacks set out after lunch, but can't confirm as we had just a quick peek on the way to the outdoor pool. The breakfast room is a bit small for the number of guests, but they set the coffee off to the side so you can at least get that quickly and w/o standing in line, which is important for the first cup of the day.
A couple of quips:
1.) there is no ice machine on the first floor. It was on the opposite side of the hotel, 2nd floor. Since there was no fridge in the room, we had to load up one at a time.
2.) we had difficulty locating the property from 95 using google maps & our GPS
