We stayed here mainly out of necessity, as it was one of the few hotels still available over Labor Day weekend; after our stay here, I can definitely see why it wasn't sold out. The hotel and its grounds are dated and dingy, and everything from the room to the pool to the restaurant made me think "flee-bag motel." The bathroom clearly hadn't been cleaned before we arrived- there was nasty hair in the sink and the tub, and the toilet was dirty. The bathtub didn't drain, either, so I was standing in ankle-deep water during my shower. The front desk staff was friendly one minute and borderline rude the next--very strange.

We were upgraded to a pool view king after I called to complain about the first floor parking lot view room with double beds we were given, instead of the king we had reserved. However, they charged us an extra fee for having two people staying as opposed to one--that's definitely a first. Extremely overpriced for a hotel of this quality.

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

This was my third stay at this location, but my last stay before this one was almost 5 years ago. I will start with the positives. The grounds are very nice and the beach is the great powder white sand and turquoise water that is found along this area of the FL panhandle. The pools and swim-up bar with waterfall are also still very nice. The outdoor bar in the back just off the beach was great. Additionally everyone in the staff we interacted with was very nice This place is getting in to trouble because of age and some other annoyances. Check in was somewhat slow with a long line and only 2 people working the check in desk. We wanted a beach front room so paid extra for the view, we were assigned room 3034. The view was great, but the rest of the room needs some work. The bathroom was dirty, including a nasty air vent and also a bottle of cleaning fluid left on the counter, maybe we were supposed to finish cleaning it? Walls were scuffed/dirty and carpet was stained. Most notable was what appeared to be mold growing on multiple places on the ceiling. Please see attached photos for reference. Additionally we had requested a King bed and on check in we were told none were available. The technology available today surely would allow them to know how many king beds you need and how many you have, make your reservations accordingly. The Okaloosa Island area is seeing some growth in the last few years. Unfortunately for the Ramada they got a "RV Resort" (Trailer Park) across the street. There is a brand new Holiday Inn Resort going in just down the road right next to the Four Points Sheraton Resort that will likely compete at the Ramada Price Point. This brand new hotel will make the aging Ramada facility look even worse.

Room Tip: All rooms are a generally a short walk from the beach or pool, unless you require a view don't p...

Didn't stay at this aging Ramada, but ate at the Garden Cafe because of positive reviews on another website. The ambiance of the cafe is wonderful, with arched windows and a lovely view of the garden and pool area. That's where the charm ends. I should have turned around and walked out when the buffet clearly looked like a Shoney' s reject. We ordered off of the menu and the steak and eggs was terrible. The steak tasted of Adolph's tenderizer and was less than 1/8 inch thick. The eggs were cooked to order, but the biscuits where those pre-cooked heated kind and the grits were soggy. The waitress was wonderful and solicitous, but the food was so sub-par it was beyond belief. I fail to see how anyone can give a good review of a restaurant such as this.
