The place is being renovated as I type this so maybe your experience will be better. The RM smelled like it was a smoking RM many months before? The doors didn't close right, my bed was squeaky and sagged in the middle. We had a visitor at two am and had to tell them room was taken. On the up... More

This was a great place to stay and will probably stay there again. It is able to be seen by the interstate but if you are coming up SE Delaware you will miss your turn since you can't see the Ramada sign. The beds are very comfortable but if you are short like me be ready to jump up to... More

The good things were quite good - comfortable beds, clean rooms, fluffy towels and four breakfast options from the attached Ankeny Diner. Most of the breakfast options were carb-loaded - oatmeal, cereal, pancakes - but one option included two eggs, hash browns and toast. You sit down in the restaurant, and a waiter refills your coffee and water. You can... More

We stayed here on a Friday night because it was one of the cheaper rooms we could find near the Firetrucker Brewery (only about 1.5 miles away). It is conveniently located right off of I35, but is a little hard to find because it is tucked in behind the Tokyo Steak House. Conveniently close to many shops and restaurants. It... More
