I travel frequently and often stay in hotels that do not have a restaurant, but do offer a complimentary breakfast; such as this Ramada. My experience has been that the eating area is open to hotel guests not only at breakfast, but throughout the day. After purchasing a salad to eat in my room, I went into the lunch area and helped myself to 2, small, bread sized, Styrofoam plates to take back to my room. Before returning to my room, I toured the area to locate my meeting room for the next morning. A lone woman sitting at a table in the lounge next to the eating area, and to whom I said a friendly 'hello', apparently noticed the plates I was carrying. Without identifying herself, she confronted me in the hallway outside the eating area and told me I can't take the plates. I politely explained that I was a guest and planned to use them for my meal in my room. The woman turned away, repeating that I couldn't take the plates. I followed her to the eating area to explain and clarify. I apologized and offered to pay for the plates. The woman refused my apology, continuing to walk away. This exchange took place near the front desk and I strongly suspect, based upon the subsequent demeanor of the front desk staff, that they overheard the exchange. Through my own questions I have learned that the food service is a business separate from the hotel. The absence of courteous dialogue with the food service person, the inference that I was a thief, the refusal to accept my apology and the lack of explanation by hotel staff, have ensured that my next stay in Yorkton, will not be the Ramada.
