We had a 24-hour layover in Mexico City, so we decided to stay in a hotel by the airport and then travel into the center for sightseeing during the day. The Ramada was by far the cheapest hotel by the airport. We arrived at 10 pm, and we quickly found their office in Terminal 2 next to the Oxxo convenience store. They had free water and Coke for guests, and their shuttle quickly took us to the hotel.
We checked in quickly and had a late snack in the restaurant, which has a good variety of Mexican dishes and isn't too expensive. The room was clean, but the sheets were gray and stained. The TV had hundreds of channels - I don't know whether this is new, since many reviews pointed out a lack of channels. We had a huge 1 m x 2 m window looking out over the local neighborhood. We turned off the A/C, since the room was cool, but in the morning when we tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't work, and the room got very stuffy.
The biggest problem is that the walls are very thin. We didn't know this at 11 pm when we arrived, so I am sure that we woke people up. In the morning we were woken up repeatedly by people in adjacent rooms and even down the hall. You can hear EVERYTHING. Bring your earplugs! I can't understand how they can build a transit hotel by the airport with such thin walls when it is obvious that people just want a quiet night's sleep and when it is clear that people are coming and going at all hours.
Otherwise, the service at the hotel was excellent. They let us stay in the room till 3 pm, and then we hung out in the lobby till their shuttle took us to the airport. The metro is just across the street, and an express bus that goes along the ring road stops right in front of the hotel. There is a decent family-style restaurant called Wings 50 m away - just like Denny's or Friendly's.
All in all, not a bad choice for the money. But be prepared for the ruckus at all hours of the day.
