Usually Best Western is one chain I can count of for at least a good motel/hotel. The Ramona Inn was cheaper so I was not expecting a great place, but this was below Best Western's standards IMO. The first impression we got when we entered the room was the wall lamp over the bed was loose and tilting over the bed. It was the bed my mother was going to sleep in (nearer to the bathroom) and I was afraid it was going to fall off onto her head. The bathroom sink clogged up when we turned it on; it eventually went down. The shower drain was slow draining as well. Also the faucet handle on the sink was so stuck my mother could not turn it on/off (I even had trouble moving it). The carpet looked worn and there was paint peeling off the walls in a few places. The parking lot spaces were cramped and very unusual; I did not like trying to park there. The next morning we got breakfast and had to bring it back to our room because the breakfast area is also small and cramped. We arrived after dark so I did not really notice the outside of the building; looking at it in the morning, if I was driving by with no reservation I would not have stayed there. It is dreary looking and all the plants in the hanging planters were dead. When I took my problems with the lamp, sink, shower, etc. to the counter, the clerk seemed disinterested. Just to say something positive, the place was clean, not too noisy, and no bugs and the breakfast was fairly good.
