“Great value if you can accept the area”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Compared with the other downtown hotels, this motel is great value. All I want is a bed for the night, and some fresh milk for my coffee in the morning, and the Ramada delivers this for good value. I always get freshly ground coffee from Safeway and bring a kettle and Malita filter + papers - avoid the dishwater they call coffee in the room.

My meeting was at the Hilton - a 10 minute walk away. What I saved on the room rate [<$90/night] I spent on dinner - see my other reviews!

Room Tip: Stay on floor 2 - you can use the stairs on 1st Street for quick access as the lift is very slow!

Pros: Free parking, walking distance to downtown hot spots. Continental Breakfast, Cheap.

Cons: Old, thin walls, a little dingy

If you don't want anything fancy but want to be in downtown for a better price, then this is a great option. Would stay again, when I'm trying to save money.
