“A good place to stay, and eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stayed here just one week ago while touring the Finger Lakes district of New York State. This hotel stands out among the rest available in the area. It has all amenities to be expected of a Ramada Hotel, and some. Restaurant was excellent, both for breakfast and dinner. Staff were attentive and helpful. A good base for walking around Lake Geneva, and convenient to the New York Throughway, (10 minutes).

Room Tip: Asking for Lake view rooms is the best, and upper floors have great lake views. Although not diabled...

Nice view, but the "pool" was the size of a hot tub, and the gym was smaller than the guest room size. Check in is not until 4 pm, which was very close if you need to change and make it to a 5 pm dinner somewhere around town, and we could not check in earlier. Also, never brought pillows we requested.

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. Our pool is a “cool down” pool which provides a relaxing respite however it does disappoint lap swimmers - We regret that we did not inform you that our guests have complimentary access to the full size indoor swimming pool at the nearby property. We also routinely check guests in prior to 4pm as rooms become available. We will be discussing these service issues that you experienced. We hope to see you again.

I stayed at this hotel to attend a conference in Geneva and it was definitely a surprise. Great accommodations, a terrific location right on the lake, and outstanding service. The staff was especially helpful when I discovered (after checking out) that I had left some papers in my room - they went twice to the room to find them and they did! I would definitely consider staying at this Ramada when visiting the area for pleasure.

Room Tip: A lake view is worth it!

Upon checking into our room, we were greeted by a huge spider (we're talking quarter size) on the ceiling. No sooner did we get that one out, we discovered it's friend by the door - same type, same size. I freak at the sight of spiders so this was not the welcome I wanted. Went downstairs and mentioned it to the front desk clerk who really did not seem to care. We did mention it to a lady the next day who seemed to take more interest in it. Double beds seemed a little smaller than what I thought a double bed should be. We also had a folding cot which just barely fit between the two beds. Housekeeping failed to replace the cups in the bathroom, and also left us a note asking us to label all trash that isn't in a Ramada can (we had our dirty clothes in a black garbage bag, guess they didn't like that, but we always do it like that and never had any problem). Also we were not told that we could use the pool at the Hampton. The location is good and the views of the lake are beautiful, but would probably stay elsewhere if in the area again.

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate the feedback and we have and will discuss it regularly among all of the Ramada Geneva team. The double beds are a standard size, and all guests are supposed to be informed of the availability of the nearby pool. We will address the spidery welcome too. Regarding the note, our housekeeping team was trying to be conscientious. We will improve our methods of communication. We do hope you will consider staying with us again. Sincerely, Jason Hagerman.

I usually cringe when I think Ramada, but this property was new and very nice. Room was great, excellent view, and breakfast was good with good service. We mentioned the name of the local company we were doing business with and got a rate that was about 60% of what I would have expected to pay.

Recently decided to do the windery tour in the finger lakes and a friends had mentioned this hotel.
We were very happy with the room and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. We had a suite on the 5th floor and the view was great. The room was spacious and clean. The king size bed was very comfortable.

Overall a very very go experience. I would definately go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: As for an upper floor lakeview.

We recently stayed at this hotel and were overwhelmingly happy with our stay! We reserved a jacuzzi suite, shortly after confirming our reservation there was an accident and the suite was no longer available! Patty quickly fixed our woos. The hotel gave us a queen suite for two nights and the jacuzzi for the last night at a rate of 160 a night! This is unheard of! They were under no obligation to do that yet did it anyway! The pool is small but you are able to use the Hampton pool/jacuzzi. We recommend you go swimming in the beautiful natural falls around the hotel!
