This ramada is disgusting. It smells horrible. Pool is so cloudy you couldn't see the bottom. Guest services is rude! Called and asked 3 times for extra blanket and pillow only to be finally given a small blanket and told they ran out of pillows. We were charged an additional $98.00 for nothing that they had to credit us and even though we stated we were not staying the 3 nights they charged us for all 3. Do yourself a favor and spend the few extra $ and go elsewhere! 1 block away is a BRAND NEW motel 6 that would have been 100% better than this old run down neglected place they call Ramada.

Being parents of a sailor and in town for his boot camp graduation, we received a "discount" but I didn't think we would get such a low quality room. It stunk and was very stuffy. The floors felt wet and the bed sheets, it was gross. Tried to change rooms into the "newer" area but had nothing better. So we changed hotels the next day. Wouldn't recommend staying here.

We booked this hotel through priceline because all others were booked due to a Navy event going on in the area. We booked 3 nights for around $60 bucks each. If you park in the back, there are some apartment buildings right behind the chain link fence that feel very unsafe. There were some young men hanging out in the parking lot of the apartments that looked rough. I almost cried when I walked in to our room and saw what it looked like . It was very late at night and we had 2 young kids so not many other options but to stay. We were put on the first floor and the room was very, very small. The hall ways smelled like an old bowling alley full of stale cigarette smoke. Our room smelled even worse. Everything in the room was damp. We had the air conditioner on full blast and it would cut in and out. The carpet made our feet dirty. The bath room was very gross. Tub was all yellow, very, very out of date. Pipes running through the ceiling in the bathroom. Mattress was sunk in and uncomfortable. All the lamps had spots for 2 bulbs, but only had one (I'm guessing to save money). My husband didn't get any sleep due to the neighbors staying up till 3 am and being loud. We decided we would ask for a different room and if it wasn't any better we would just find a different hotel. You know it is bad when you are willing to lose out on your money with no refund and pay again to stay somewhere else. We ended up getting a new room on the second floor. It was much more quiet. The room didn't stink half as bad and the room was alot bigger. A few more updates too. We decided to stay and suck it up. Best part about the hotel is the free breakfast. I would never, ever stay here again and would never recommend it to anyone. I can't imagine paying full price for a room here.

Room Tip: ask for second floor room
