“Eww!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Room had awful smell, carpet dirty, dirty washcloth left in bathroom, sockets too loose to keep charger/curling iron plugged in. 4 light bulbs were burned out. Online photos deceiving. Very disappointed!

I stayed here because of the Ramada name. Well, that was an incorrect assumption that the hotel would be good. I should give some credit to the office check in process that was smooth and an interconnecting room was available. But that's where it stopped. I had my eldest son write a review on what he thought of the hotel, and I must say, I agreed with that so I have cut and paste his view.

On first impressions the ramada inn is quality for money that has more than enough room for 4 people to stay for more than one day.

Then the attention to detail kicks in and the your eyes are immediately drawn to the uncentered pictures and unevenly painted walls. The door that only has one working lock out of the two didn't seem a worry until the nearby ice machine outside of the room started to be used at 3 in the morning. It was not until this point when we all started to play out every horror movie in our minds hoping that the one flimsy, apprentice fitted, shady looking deadbolt lock is enough to hold back whatever horrors are awaiting out there.

The bathroom is another story. The bathroom has poorly covered holes in the walls and the showers leaks something fierce like sand through a colander. The oddly placed showered head makes it extremely hard for an average sized person like myself to wash anything from the shoulder up. The only way it can be done is to lay on ones back and wash your hair while watching the mould on the ceiling dance like multiplying bacteria.

All in all once the day is over everyone closes their eyes and you cant see all the tiny imperfections and when the beds are as comfy as they are who really cares.

Room Tip: No tips to chose good rooms at this place, my tip is to avoid altogether.

Great location, near the fwy, four blocks from Higuera. Food nearby. Rooms were standard 80's style. Not fancy, but clean. The pool shuts for the off season. Bath was small, but adequate. The breakfast was at the lower end of the standard two or three star offering. A couple of bagels, muffins, etc. Good nights sleep. Everything in the room worked. We would stay there again.

The Ramada chain needs to take a closer look at this franchise. The shabby room had a stain on the comforter, water stains on the ceiling and the carpet felt damp when you walked. The mattress was so old and saggy we did not sleep at all!

Appreciated not charging pet deposit for our Search and Rescue dogs. I reserved a king size bed, and got 2 doubles. We found adult fleas (our dog are on good flea prevention).
And a lot more wrong.

Check-in was fine with service dog. Floors in our room were dangerously slick so we changed rooms. Checking out told we could never to have service dog in family suites again. This is against ADA law.
