“I expected more from a Ramada”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I'm figuring this had to be privately owned because I've never had such an experience at a Ramada before. However, I have to say that they were really nice in accommodating us at such a late hour. We had just left another hotel due to an abundance of cockroaches and they were sympathetic and found us a room.

We didn't find their cockroaches until the morning. When I told the front desk, they did appear as though they were unaware (shocker, I know) and were at least apologetic as opposed to the last place. The staff was very friendly but the hotel was just too run down and dirty for our needs.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel until they update

If you need to use Wi Fi this is not the place to stay.
Signal is open to every body around, no password which makes the signal week. Pool was not clear not very inviting.
They had plastic chairs that if you seat too fast will make the legs bend. (not heavy, average weight).
The place was clean but they were many details like broken waffle maker, remote control with scotch tape to hold the batteries etc.

Room Tip: The rooms are decent for the price. And be careful when you seat on those plastic chairs.

Stayed here 10 minutes and left. Shower fixture - no water, then only scalding water. Verified by housekeeping. Ancient phone in room didn't work. Wifi didn't work. Sink fixture barely functioning and dirt in corners of counter. Demanded refund but was refused. Manager not available, manager's wife not available. Clerk on duty told me that accountant would be in at late evening and '0' credit card hold would be cancelled. NOT TRUE - charged cc even though I LEFT IMMEDIATELY. Now processing dispute through my bank. I WOULD SLEEP IN MY CAR RATHER THAN STAY AT THIS PLACE.

Room Tip: Go to another motel !!! Don't stay here

The hotel is pretty torn down. They have tried to do some maintenance but still no where up-to-the-mark. Staff was not at all helpful. Asked them for hot water and they said they do not have it, even though they had a microwave right next to them!! Breakfast had a lot of missing stuff and was not getting replaced at all. Even common stuff like Coffee!! Good part - Hotel is conveniently located.

I was having a tough time with hotels on the route in my California trip so this time I really wanted to have a nice sleep in a decent hotel. The choice was between the Ramada and the Best Western. The Ramada won the battle cause it was the first we found next to the route.

The full experience was quite bitter. The girl from the check in was by far the best thing from the hotel. She was friendly and very helpful. The room and the bed was okay but the rest was not standard. The wifi internet didnt work at all, the A/C was almost impossible to regulate and the breakfast lame.

When you see that kind of breakfast you wonder if its just better not to offer anything. The orange juice was tang powder, the toast and bagel hard as rocks and the other choices were either cereal or a croissant. Simply awful. We fill our coffee mug and we left.

We left the place wondering what went wrong and where to stay next time.
