1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

I can't even tell you how disappointed I was in this hotel. I knew it wasn't going to be a five-star...all I wanted was a clean room. I prepaid because the price was so great... I should have known better!

The lobby was dark and so dated; it may have been filthy but you couldn't tell because it was so dark. The room, however, was beyond disgusting; we didn't even dare to sit on the bed. My grandson is severely allergic to cigarette smoke so we made sure we had a non smoking room - I was assured of that. He wasn't in the room 20 minutes when he started breaking out in a rash all over his body - the place just reeked of cigarette smoke.

We left and went to the Hampton Inn just down the street. No refund of course, but it didn't matter... our health and safety have to be priority.

Room Tip: Don't choose any rooms... RUN to another hotel!

No hot water, Bathroom door broke so you get locked in, smell of smoke was atrocious. No one cleaning snow off steps for customer safety.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

over charged for room, halls smelled of urine, AC unit came on and off every minute or so, not actually a Ramada according to Ramada International. The clerk lied and charged us $70 then charged the next guest the advertised rate of $40. The breakfast they advertised was instant coffee and a packaged muffin. Do not ever stay there under any condition...sleep in you car if you have to.
