I liked the room very much and the room was very clean. The location was good and the service was great. The check in and out time was okay. The breakfast menu was good and the food was great. I really enjoyed my stay.

I strongly recommend that you carefully conceal everything of value when you leave the room or take it with you. We stayed three nights. My husband's cologne disappeared from the top of the dresser while we were out of the room during the morning hours. Only he and I (and the housekeeping staff) had been in the room that day. The hotel manager was very defensive of her employees and insinuated that we fabricated the story. However, a representative of the holding company that owns Ramada Alexandria and the Super 8 called us after we returned home, offered a very nice apology and reimbursed the charges for our stay which almost covered the cost of the cologne. The front desk personnel, the security guard, and the gentleman who pulls the linens were all very personable. However, I would recommend customer service training for the general manager, the cleaning lady, and the housekeeping manager. The breakfast spread was quite impressive in appearance considering the hotel rate, but we ate at the conference we were attending. The bed mattress was very comfortable, and although there were some faint stains, I felt that the linens were clean. A couple of the pillows should be replace though. The bathroom and vanity areas were clean but not replenished adequately after the first day. We had to make special requests for toilet tissue and clean towels (even after leaving dirty ones on the floor as instructed). The vanity soap was taken and not replaced but we just made do with the one from the shower. Water pressure and temperature, air conditioning, fridge, microwave and lamps all worked fine for us. We presumed someone had smoked in the room at some point because we detected a strange odor, Being an upstairs room, maybe it had leaked during a hard rain. Ramada Inns are part of the Wyndam group so you earn reward points, but they are franchises and individually owned. You cannot count on standards being upheld consistently from hotel to hotel. My husband will never again make a reservation based on the reputation of a brand name without checking reviews first.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room in the very back section and did not have any issues with noise of any type.
