The hotel is right next to the freeway with one side of the building facing it. Even with the windows and doors closed could still hear the noise all night. This was a family trip with 4 people in one room. There was one queen or full size bed with a pull out bed from couch. That pull out was... More

The sofa bed was incredibly uncomfortable and had to use several blankets to make it little comfortable. We did not get enough towels and had to called in. The remote controls didn't work until the last day of our staying. And on the last day I found a well-alive cockroaches!

Upon entering the room, it had an old and musty smell to it. The kitchenette appeared to have been fitted in the 1970's and hasn't been updated since. I am not there to cook but it would have been nice if the refrigerator actually worked. The lamp in the living room area could only be turned on by inserting the... More

The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Housekeeping staff were very professional, hard working, trustworthy, and courteous. Facility Maintenance; however, was poor. Bring a tool kit! The exterior door knob fell off, the tub faucet screw kept coming loose, tub water was difficult to find the right setting that didn't scald you. The bathroom sink stopper wouldn't stay up... More

Beware! Do not fall for the pictures on booking sites they are misleading, it was probably taken when it first opened in the 60's. This place is laughable for a Ramada and they should just shut this place down for desperately needed renovation. Poor maintenance and upkeep, our room was old and smelly, NO WIFI, blinds were broken, ripped curtains... More

Rooms are nice size, but smelled from cleaning. Every day we stayed we had fewer towels, only got full room service once in 3 days. Curtain in window was torn, and the blinking light on the phone would not quit even after four requests to the front desk (only the desk can turn it off!) Safe was locked and not... More
