“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

For the business traveller, this is an excellent hotel.

The rooms are large, with comfy beds and pillows. And the bathrooms have all required amenities.

The complimentary breakfast service is very handy too.

The property employs 2 security guards each night adding to an already comfortable stay.

When I'm back, I'll be staying here again - no question.

I recently stayed there with a peewee hockey team, expecting they would be kid friendly-they did know they were booking a team of young boys....right??
The manager, I believe her name is Jackie, gave them trouble from the time the first kid arrived...how much trouble can a sole 12 year old boy be?
She told the kids they couldn't even walk room to room, which is ridiculous.
A hotel staff member had called the coach to confirm they would be able to set up an early breakfast, and several parents were present for the call. Breakfast was confirmed as well as a late check-out of 1pm due to our game times. The following morning we played our first game, and some of the parents had returned to the hotel in between games to be informed that we were not able to have a late check-out, and if we weren't out by 11am we would be charged an extra night, accused a parent of stating rumours and was completely unreasonable. Then she posted paper notices about the hotel saying everyone had to be out by 11am. There was a scramble at the rink for everyone to check out suddenly, the coach even had to go back to pack while the boys were gearing up for the game. We were willing to compromise even though it was her staff that made the mistake, but nope-we were all liars and there was no way her staff said that. If your travelling with kids-don't stay there, and if they say they will give you a late check-out I highly suggest getting it in writing on letterhead-since the next day you might be accused of being a liar and writing the letter yourself!
I would have rated it worse but the rooms were clean and the guy that works at the front desk has great customer service and probably the only reason people enjoy your hotel!

Room Tip: Just don't stay there if you have kids and get anything they tell you in writing on letterhead!

Were there attending a 2 day convention along with many other conventioners. A young man at the desk has decidedly great taste (like ours) in food. When we inquired about East Indian food, he directed us to a super restaurant. This time around, we inquired about a good pizza place. Both places were awesome, and definitely a "do it again". Thanks for these good tips!

We really liked this hotel for the cleanliness and for our spacious room. We stayed here two nights on our way back down the island en route to the Victoria airport. Great location reasonably priced with friendly staff from start to finish. Breakfast is the usual type (low quality) otherwise it would have a five star rating from us, but we didn't stay here for the breakfast right?

The rooms are fine. The exercise equipment is fine. The staff are pleasant. The highway is not an issue. Good location and easy to find. It's exactly what you would expect from a Ramada. I travel for business and often look for somewhere with a continental breakfast as I don't usually have the time (or appetite) for a full meal. Maybe it was just the time I was there, but between the stale looking white bread and limited fruit, it was not worth it. I grabbed a (very green) banana and headed over the Starbucks.
