“Perfect location hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great hotel and great location - very clean. 8 of us met here for a bachelorette party in Long Beach . . very accessible for cab rides so no one drinks & drives! Only bad thing there is no elevator, so going up a large flight of stairs w/a heavy suit case was a bit annoying, but other than that, definitely would stay again, if need be!

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is on a main road but as we had a nice room at the rear of the hotel we didn’t hear any traffic noise. The room was “motel” style so we were able to park right outside the door which was convenient. The room was a good size and very clean with a comfortable king bed. The bathroom had a shower and toilet in it with the sink area (which had lots of room on the vanity) being just outside the bathroom. There was a flat screen TV and a fridge. Breakfast (cereal, muffins, bagels, fruit etc) was included in the price. The only negative comment I could make was the air-conditioner was a bit noisy but apart from that it was a great, clean place to stay.

Clean decent rooms. Im not sure what people expect to pay in this area but it seemed comparable to other places in the area. Convienent to jones beach. The pool is small but very clean. Had a good one night stay, im not sure what peoples issue with the parking was but i was able to park my full size truck.

Dear Seanb88,

Thanks for your kind words! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our rates do compare to surrounding hotels in our area, and being that it is the summer; our peak season of the year, our rates are more on the higher end, opposed to our rates in the winter. We offer truck parking, so our parking lot is significantly large and accommodating, but being that our property sells out during the weekend the parking lot may become pretty crowded, like any other hotel around our area. As you mentioned, we are near Jones Beach, as well as Long Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout, all beautiful convenient beaches that are just a 10-15 minute drive away. Long Island is a wonderful place, with beautiful scenery, and we're glad you've made a trip out here. We hope to accommodate you again in the future.

Best Regards,
Danielle Guzman

My best friend and I were coming to NY for a wedding of a friend from College and we saw that the Ramada was right down the street and newly renovated so we decided to stay there and we loved it!! When you first walk in the lobby is very nicely done and clean, and the lady at the desk I believe her name was Danielle was very nice and welcoming helped us out with where our room was and gave us a few suggestions on where we can go out and have a few drinks before the wedding. We were surprised on how big the rooms were and how clean, I'm a fanatic I always check all the sheets before I go into bed and everything was good!! We even needed more pillows at like 10:30pm and the gentleman came right up and gave them to us. We woke up early for the wedding went down to the lobby for a nice breakfast spread and left!! All in all we had a great stay!! Very nice and friendly staff, clean rooms, and very affordable!!

Based on the reviews and pictures that were posted, I was shocked when I arrived at the hotel and found its outward appearance to be more of a Motel. Not sure what the folks who did these reviews are used to, but I'm more used to properties in the class of Hampton Inn's...this is not even close, which surprised me because I expected something better in a Ramada. As I mentioned, this is really a glorified MOTEL...I saw a picture with interior hallways in the tripadvisor photos, however, my room, and what appeared to be the overwhelmingly majority of rooms, had motel style access from the parking lot. The room, itself, was OK. Reasonably clean and comfortable. A/C worked fine. Breakfast was OK, but not the type I'm used to from the Hampton Inn's I've stayed at. Again, serviceable, though. For a hundred bucks or so, and knowing up-front that this is really just a motel that's been somewhat updated (more on the inside than the outside) this may satisfy you. However, just be aware that while interior halls may exist, most rooms are not of that type. I even would pass a coin operated washer and dryer when going to my car...I've never stayed at a hotel that had amenities such as this. I can only imagine that such amenities exist at budget motels that I've not stayed at previously. So, in summary, be aware that this is a MOTEL, not a hotel (per my definition of a hotel, anyway) where you'll park in front of your room and enter from a parking lot. For the price I paid (which was a better price with my AARP card, no less) I expected more (especially because my AARP card got me a 20% discount -- full fare would have been absurd for such a motel style property.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one of the few rooms that have interior hallways (I was told they had "some"...

Dear PATraveler01,

I apologize you were under the impression that our Hotel was all interior, as majority of our property is exterior. We are considered a Hotel though, and what sets aside from a Motel is that we offer; suites, continental breakfast, conference room, business center, fitness room, outdoor pool, laundry servies and Wi-Fi, whereas a Motel doesn't offer any amenities such as those. With the upcoming year we are planning on re-doing our courtyard and pool area, to offer a more updated look with extra outdoor seating, to go along with our interior. I'm sorry you feel as though you were over priced, but summer is our peek season, as we do book out regualry, and we are just staying in the same price range as surrounding hotels in our area. Besides the fact that we are an exterior property, you seemed to enjoy your stay otherwise. I hope we can earn your business again in the future, and you can give us another oppurtunity to change your views about our exterior property, being that everything else seemed to go smoothe.

Best Regards,
Danielle Guzman

This is a great hotel with wonderful staff, a great breakfast and apparently newly renovated rooms. A very good value. I will stay there on my next trip to Long Island. It is also close to LI railroad to go into the city.

Dear Beverly Y317,

Glad to hear you've enjoyed your past stay here, at the Ramada Inn & Suites of Rockville Centre, and even more thrilled to hear we will be your hotel of choice on your next visit to Long Island. Hopefully your next trip will be during the summer so you can you spend sometime poolside soaking up the sun. We're looking forward to accomodating you again soon.
