“Big rooms...needs TLC...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed a couple of nights at the Ramada Downtown and had a nice time. The rooms I was in was at one time two rooms that has since been converted into one. It was very similar to an Embassy Suites layout though with two bathrooms which is nice if you are travelling with children. The decor and furniture was old and needs some TLC upgrades. The free breakfast had the usual hot and cold food options with juices and coffee. It was pretty good. The fitness center had a very old treadmill, eliptical and a couple weight machines but no free weights. There was a sauna and a small indoor pool too. Service was good. Parking lot in front of hotel fills up when the hotel is busy. Location is okay but no real good food options without having to drive a bit. I suggest driving 15 minutes to Wanamaker for lots of choices. Free WiFi.

we checked in early, around 1:00 pm. We went shopping and returned around 6:30 pm. We had to park 2 blocks from the motel on the street. I think if you are paying $100 dollars per night, you should be able to park in the motel lot.

Dear catsfan008,

I’m happy we were able to get you checked in early. Our normal check in time is 4:00 p.m. so getting in at 1:00 p.m. is always great! I’m sorry you had trouble finding parking when you returned. We do have a large extra parking lot across the street that has plenty of free parking for our guests.

Sincerely,

Rodger Fry
General Manager

Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful with any questions we had and called to check if we needed anything after we got to our room.

I will start by saying the staff was WONDERFUL. I already had a discount on my room, and when we arrived the front desk clerk (Jon, I think? Brown hair, pony tail, thin, batman earring in one ear) got us ANOTHER discount because I was a patient at St. Francis. He really went out of his way to help us out, he deserves a raise. The room was very nice as well, very comfortable beds, very spacious rooms. The hotel is older, so yes, some of the things in the rooms are older, the TV wasn't a flat screen, things like that, but the rooms were NOT shabby or outdated by any means, everything was in excellent shape. The best part was the complimentary breakfast, it was unlike other hotels complimentary 'breakfast'. They had damn near ever breakfast food you can think of, and there was an extremely nice gentleman who ran the breakfast buffet, he really went out of his way to make sure everyone was taken care of. That man deserves a raise too. 5 stars all the way.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the older part of the hotel, you get a great view of Topeka if you can get onto a hig...

Dear Katelyn,

It was WONDERFUL to have you here at the Ramada Topeka Downtown Hotel and Convention Center. Jon was just promoted to Front Desk Supervisor so thank you for recognizing him. I’m so happy he went out of his way to help you. Thank you for the nice comments about the room and the free hot breakfast. Mike takes great pride in his work and makes sure everyone has a super breakfast to start their day. We appreciate the 5 star review!!!!
