“Good Value, average hotel with some good perks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I knew from other reviews that there is dancing here on Friday evenings, so I asked for a room away from the dancing, and they were happy to put me in a back room. I did go out and watch the salsa dancing for a while Friday evening.
When I got to my room, it hadn't been opened for a while and so was musty. I ran the fan and it cleared right up. I do agree that someone with allergies might have more trouble than I did. The bed was firm and I slept well.
Breakfast is continental - you get it yourself off the counter. Cereal, milk, bagels, yogurt, coffee, all you can eat.
The amazing hidden jewel in this hotel is the thai restaurant. You don't have to go outside - just down the hall past the lounge. I had an excellent meal there. I had another excellent meal at the award-winning seafood restaurant two doors away.
This hotel is a short bus ride from the downtown area, and has shopping and several restaurants in walking distance. This hotel is an average hotel. If you want a place to sleep, this is a good choice. If you want a five-star hotel, you'll have to pay for one.

Room Tip: If you're there Friday evening, ask for a room away from the salsa dancing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the earlier reviews. The room was nice and clean and well stocked. The girl at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was perfect for what we needed. Fresh fruit, dannon yogurt, freshly brewed coffee and the waffle machine were nice surprises. We wanted a clean, affordable place to spend the night, which is exactly what we got. The internet access in the lobby was good. Location was perfect. If it would've been a bit warmer, we could've also enjoyed the pool. All-in-all, it was a very positive experience.

I was amazed that this still had the Ramada name. The rooms and the hallway smelled. None of the ice machines or vending machines worked. The staff isn't really helpful and seem indifferent. It seemed like there were guests coming and going all night long which made me wonder about the other guest - what type were they? I would not return.
