We stayed at the Ramada with my in-laws, who had puchased a time-share week. We were to stay in Ft. Lauderdale first, then go on the Regal Empress Cruise, to the Bahamas, and then go to the Ramada in Orlando.
Our room was ok. It wasn't terribly dirty, but we had a hard time getting towels delivered. The rugs were worn and the box springs were moldy. My mother -in-law said she saw tiny bugs in the bathroom, and I saw an ant on my sheet in the morning. Well, I know its hard to keep those tiny ants out, so it didn't bother me very much. There were no bedbugs. I didn't see any cockroaches. The safe was very small, but worked, though my husband had to figure out how to fit my laptop in. There was no mini fridge or coffee maker, tho there was a hair dryer on the wall and shampoos etc in the bathroom. Incidentally, there was also half a bar of soap in the tub - yuck. The pool, which I didn't swim in, was outside, and was ok. The bar was expensive and they ran out of towels at the pool.
It is an old hotel and needs to be remodeled. We got stuck without a car for most of Sunday, and decided to go for a walk. Its not the best neighborhood, though I didn't feel nervous. However, I was with my husband. Alone, I'm not sure. However, there is NO shopping within walking distance, unless you count the dollar store or the adult video place. The beaches were not close, and you def couldn't have walked to any.
Save your money, which I hope wasn't much for that dump, and stay somewhere else!
