A little over a year ago I wrote a scathing review - I stay there for 2-3 days every fall and spring. And I have done that for over ten years - when they were a Quality Inn, a Clarion, and finally the Ramada Plaza. I have watched (and experienced) many changes, and most were for the worst. However - I spent 3 nights there last week, and things have certainly changed in a positive direction. There are still some issues with the "bath fitter" liners in some rooms. You will get seasick taking a shower as the bath floor wobbles because there is water underneath. I think they are being replaced. Matresses have been replaced in most rooms, and are very comfy. Cosmetic improvements around the property, from landscaping to carpeting, are a big plus. Larry, the bartender, continues to be a major asset. He has been there for 17 years and they should never let him retire! The restaurant menu has changed, and that means the service is faster, and the food is not gourmet, but certainly pretty good. The biggest change is the front desk staff - they are very friendly and accommodating. Also, the "homeless" person from my last two stays appears to be gone. My kudos to manager Jared! Keep up the good work!
