The King room was very nice and clean. Free internet worked great. The beds were very comfortable. We didn't have any problems with the room but were very disappointed that this location didn't have the nice free breakfast as all the other Best Westerns do!!

This was a nice location. Was upgraded to a King Room and the front desk had complimentary bags of ice for coolers. Was a little disappointed that breakfast was not included as it usually is at Best Western properties, but there is a restaurant attached with good tasting food. Indoor pool with a slide for smaller swimmers.

This hotel is very basic. The rooms are adequate, but need updating badly. There is no complimentary breakfast items, but they do have a basic but pricy restaurant on site (Minerva's). There are other nicer hotels in town. We stayed here because the rest of our family stayed here for a wedding reception.

We stayed here because all the better hotels were full. It is at least 4 miles from the interstate, so not convenient. The atrium area was crazy hot, and the room was damp feeling. The decor is in serious need of an update, particularly the bathroom. No breakfast is included. The price was on a par with a decent hotel,... More

I am so sorry that you were not pleased with the accommodations. To use your words, it was a 'crazy hot' and humid weekend when you were here. We want you to know we are working on upgrades to the property and just selected some of the new finishes for the guestrooms. We do hope you had the opportunity to... More

Best Western Ramkota has the friendliest staff I have ever met while travelling. We have stayed here 3 times for Softball tournaments and they are always happy to have our rambunctious group. They make staying here so easy.

Thank you so much for your comments, we were glad to see all those young energetic kids here! We just wish the weather had cooperated a little better for the weekend, not that we would turn away rain - but it did not help with delays and playing the tournament. We hope you make a return trip again next summer!... More

My key card didn't work when I went to enter my room so I needed to walk all the way back down and get a card re-keyed. Not very many outlets and extensions cords were used to plug in lamps. I had to unplug the lamp just to plug in my phone for the evening. The room was very small,... More

Had a great stay. Handy that the Restaurant/bar was one of the best places to eat in town. Easy to get to and nice and quiet. Was able to get to where I needed to go quickly from the location and close to many of Watertowns big attractions.

This is a large hotel and conference center with pool, Minerva's restaurant and bar. As with all the Ramkota properties that we have visited in the last few years, they are in need of updating. All of the decor is circa 1970's earth tones. Rooms are clean and well appointed but dated. As another reviewer noted, this hotel is quite... More

Staff was not sensitive to our needs (Ages 65 and 70). Just adding more detail because TA requires 200 characters. Had a bed, a window, a chair, a bathroom; towels, soap, hair care products. Also a rug, a hallway, some walls; a long corridor.
