“Overbooked then lied about it.”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Booked reservations 2+ weeks in advance. When we arrived in Orlando and called Ramada about ground transportation to the hotel we were told they "had sustained water damage 2 days earlier" and rooms were unavailable. This was a lie. Apparently they told a lot pf people this (we met many of them at the substituted hotel) and just rebooked the rooms at higher rates. We sat in their lobby for 1.5 hours waiting for a promised shuttle to a resort out of town before they finally (at our insistance) called a cab for us. To their credit they did find us the room and paid for shuttle service from the new place to the convention center.

Dear Sir or Madame,

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that may have caused to you but we did have a problem at the hotel and we had no choice but to relocate you to a Resort. We took it upon ourselves to find you a clean, comfortable room and even made arrangements for your transportation knowing fully well that it will cost the hotel more money then you had paid us but just wanted our guest to be comfortable. Since there was a convention in town and were no rooms close by we ended up arranging for your stay at the closest room we found for you. I hope you understand the situation and give us another chance to serve you at our hotel. General Manager

Hotel located in a convenient location on I-Drive. Room was clean although small. Breakfast had a good variety and hotel offered free USA today newspapers. Good place for sleeping
and breakfast. But like other reviews air conditioner was loud but did keep room cool. Overall average to above average. I would consider staying here again.

We spent only a night here in early 2011; that was enough. It looks fine from the outside; lots of restaurants and stores within walking distance. The lobby is cramped, but clean. The rooms, however, are desperately in need of renovation (even a bit of paint would do wonders). Mold in the bathroom, dirty carpets, dirty towels, and beaten up furniture were the most obvious problems with our very small room. After a long day of travel, you will find it difficult to rest comfortably here. The do have a breakfast buffet, but if you aren't there very early, most of the food will be gone - not to be replaced, which doesn't matter, because you won't easily find a place to sit. Along with the rooms and the lobby, it is cramped.
