Due to heavy flooding and damage in Vermont, we decided on Ithaca for their Brewers Festival. We booked this hotel in a matter of 30 minutes, after finding out our other hotel cancelled reservations due to damage to the surrounding areas. We needed rooms for 11 people, so, not easy last minute.
Ramada was very helpful in getting us all rooms for our designated nights. Upon arrival, I had all of the previous posts in the back of my mind, but, figured I'd have my own opinions. Check in was smooth and we were told we can pull around the back to get into our rooms. Expecting to find a "Key-Card" entrance we were ready, however, the door was practically wide open. So, to say the least, the security was awful. Anyone from off the street could walk in to any of these doors making for a very unsafe situation.
The hallways were very dim and old looking. The room had a bit of a "Musty" smell to it, but, my wife went to Target and got one of those timed Air Fresheners, no problems then. We found the bed to be comfortable, the AC kept it cold. Bathroom needs a lot of updating.
One of the best things about the hotel was the outsie pool, which is open from 11-9. We pretty much had the pool to ourselves, and were able to drink beers by the pool, we made sure to bring Solo cups. The pool could have been skimmed, but, its a very nice sized pool and plenty of chairs for us.
Location of the hotel is great. A 15 minute drive, if that, will get you into the Commons area of Ithaca using either Rt 13 , or Cayuga Heights Road. Getting to the many vineyards and breweries is also very easy from this location.
There are several suggestions, and one would be the security issue of all the doors being unlocked to gain entrance to the hotel. That should be the first thing to be worked on by the owners. If customers don't feel safe, they are not going there.
Overall, yes, there were some issues with the hotel, but, if I had to, I would stay there again.
