“Outdated, dirty, and broken”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The rooms were very dirty. At first we were giving a key to a room that had beer cans all over it. The carpet needs a good cleaning, the bathrooms had mold and filth in the corners and ceiling falling in. The exercise room plaque says opens at 5:30, my key wouldn't let me in so I went to the front desk and she said it doesn't open until 9 because someone stole a tv. The security guard let me in after I protested. I called the front desk to get the key for the treadmill, she said it was gone and someone stole it, the elliptical would stay on for a min and then turned off, the bike seat was torn and pitched my butt, the recumbent bike didn't turn on but would work anyway. Also the water was missing (stolen?), and there were no towels in the workout room. Breakfast needs updating as well. Healthier items would be very much appreciated!

Good people good service good atmosphere what more can you ask for. The service the staff and restaurant give you class AAA service.
You have to spend an evening enjoying the Irish Pub.
Wow 200 words are hard to put down when I can tell you all about my stay in just five short words. Awesome, great, restful, pleasant, and peaceful

It took a long time to get checked in (learned later that the lady, who was training, was having difficulty with the computer system)

Good size rooms; one of the bathrooms had extremely slow water pressure at the wash basin - we reported this in the morning and it was fixed very quickly - hard water problem around the taps.

Had a good meal in O'Malley's Irish Club (on site); good value and good service - handy not to have to look around the area for somewhere to eat.

Beds OK - breakfast was nothing to write home about - probably the worst one we had on our tour.

I arrived and found out my Ramada Reservation was now at a Ambassador Hotel. This place needs and is going through a renovation. Stay somewhere else until it is done. They have a indoor pool off the lobby. The humidity turns to mold enough said. My room the floor was wet because they just cleaned the carpets and there was no place for the moisture to go! Dark lighting helps hide the biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Coffee is free and available all day and the staff wants to do the right thing and they work hard. This is not a people issue it is a management issue

I was traveling through the area, I found this hotel on a major street and booked a room based on the price on the flashing sign. I checked in and was given a room across the courtyard from the pool and restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable, but the restaurant was closed at 5:00 pm. The garbage cans near the rear entrance was overflowing. the cans appeared to have been full for an extended period due to the smell.

Room Tip: Get a second level or higher room near the front

I was a little surprised about so many bad reviews about this place. I stayed here with my elderly father and we were both very satisfied. The room was clean and comfortable with a friendly staff. The location is okay. It's close to the freeway but not a lot of restuarant selections. They have a nice lounge at this motel though. The only thing we could see room for improvement on was the breakfast. It wasn't bad but somewhat basic as you have to pay to get some different food items (like bacon or other hot food). I would stay here again.
