“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This is a great location near the airport, the PNC arena and not to far a drive for food and recreation.

We love staying at the Ramada. It is very near the hospital and we have stayed there for its location.

My son and I stayed at this Ramada Inn for a night after a Carolina Hurricanes hockey game.

Check-in went very smoothly, and the staff even knew we were here for the game. She gave us directions to PNC Arena (which we really didn't need after all, as it's less than a mile away on a single road, but it was appreciated). The road is well lit, and safe to walk at night.

We got up to our room and it was untouched from the previous night's occupant. In fact, the way the pillows and blankets were piled on the bed, it looked like someone was still in bed! My son thought that was funny, but I certainly didn't.

We went back to the desk and they quickly got us into a suite, apologizing profusely. The room was comfortable and clean, albeit with dated furnishings. We weren't there very long, and that sort of thing - hotel decor - doesn't bother me, especially for the price we paid (very inexpensive).

The complimentary breakfast bar was your average eggs, pancakes, grits, pastries, fruit and so on. Good, but not great.

We will definitely be back to this hotel, because of its location.

I would like to thank you for your recent stay with us! I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize for the unpleasant experience you encountered as a guest of our hotel. At Ramada we take great pride in our high standards of cleanliness, and unfortunately you experienced a time when we obviously did not meet those standards. We have had a few issues with room statuses as we have been training on our new system, but we are working on them every day to make sure things are running perfectly. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and please do not hesitate to contact me directly upon your next stay so that we may make sure your accommodations are top notch. Thank you again for your feedback, it is very important to us!

Have stayed at the Ramada Inn Blue Ridge for years - usually for an event in the area. This time it was for a concert - which is right across the street from the stadium. Husband and I left the parking lot, after the concert, and were in the lobby of the hotel within three minutes - can't beat that! In the lobby there is a coffee/hot water machine - cups and sugar etc. which is available - free - 24 hrs. It came in handy as I like a cup of hot tea at night - perfect and the area was very clean and the items looked new.

The bar area was very nice and quite a few concert goers were enjoying discussing how awesome the concert was - met a couple and we chatted for a good hour - all enjoyable. In the morning the comped breakfast buffet had eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, grits, pancakes, bagels, cream cheese - butter - jelly - pastries - cereal - juice - coffee and tea and all was delicious. My potatoes were a bit on the cold side and I ended up not eating them but the meal was tasty.

Did not get to try the pool this time as it was being cleaned and was drained of water - a bit too chilly anyway - but have used it in the summer during previous visits and it is quite delightful - again very clean.

Our sliding glass door (upstairs room - looking out into the courtyard and pool area) did not have a handle on the outside part of it - needs to be fixed - room itself was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I read someone else had stated that the pillows were too large - ours were small - little square type pillows - I did not prefer them at first but soon adjusted and they were comfortable afterall.

The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to make sure our say was pleasant - another great experience was had at this hotel.

Late checkout which is always a good thing and the Art Museum is just a few blocks away which we went to for a good three hours of viewing. Fantastic time!

Room Tip: Ask for a Courtyard room - as the rooms on the street side of the hotel (first floor) do open to the...

On behalf of our staff I would like to thank you for your kind words and comments about our hotel. We always look forward to the concert goers coming to stay with us! We are glad it is a quick walk to the arena (especially on the chilly nights) and I am happy to hear you enjoyed our coffee machine and other amenities. I would like you to know that if you happen to find the room pillows not to your liking during your next stay, we do have a different selection available at the front desk. We know that pillows are very personal so we do try and keep a variety on hand for our guests. We have been working very hard on the pool during the winter months, it is now freshly painted with a few more extras, and we expect it to be open Wednesday, April 17th. Thank you again so much for your feedback, it is very important to us! We look forward to seeing you in the future.
