We stayed at the Ramada for 2 nights August 23 – 25, 2008.
Upon check-in we were greeted with a large sign saying that it was a privately owned hotel and management wasn’t responsible for the car break ins which had been occurring. We then checked in with the unfriendly person at the front desk. Upon getting our room key and listening to her bored voice reciting about breakfast & other amenities, she told us several times about all of the car break-ins that have occurred and they are not responsible. We immediately parked in the closest available parking space to the entrance. If you stay here, make sure that you get a parking spot near the front entrance! There was a lot of broken glass in parking spaces at the side and back of the building. At least they could have swept it up. The hotel should be pro active in dealing with the problems such as having bright lighting and a fence around the parking area.
The rooms are large, nice and new. The bed was very comfortable and the A/C worked great. Housekeeping is non existent! There was food left behind in the fridge (don’t know how long). There were several food wrappers on the floor beside the bed and side table in plain view. Our room was never even made up the next day! By the time we arrived back late in the evening, we were too tired to complain.
Their breakfast buffet is adequate. You have white bagels, white bread, doughnuts, muffins and cereals. There were some lukewarm scary looking sausage patties, Eggo waffles and scrambled egg discs in the chafing dishes. The fruit juice was watered down but the coffee was good. The breakfast is included with your stay.
The check-out was just as cold as the check-in. They never even asked how our stay was and we never offered our opinions as they didn’t seem to care.
Would we stay here again, I don’t know. The hotel was convenient for the purpose of our trip but we wouldn’t go out of our way to stay here.
