“Great Place for a relaxing weekend”
Reviewed March 9, 2011

The Ramkota is a great place to stay for a relaxing family getaway. The hotel staff provided wonderful customer service from check-in to check-out. The room was clean and spacious. The beds were really comfortable. The pool area was great for people of all ages and staff members were present during the busy times to assist. The restaurant and lounge offered a great atmosphere for dining and drinks. The servers made you feel welcome and were availabe when needed. Excellent location next to the Kirkwood Mall as it is within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.

We recently stayed in the 2-room Whirlpool Suite at the Ramkota Inn. The staff was very friendly and readily available to help with any questions or concerns, directing us to restaurants around the area and the Kirkwood Mall, across the street. Check-in was a breeze and our room was very clean and spacious. The bed and couches were very comfortable, which made us feel very at home. After relaxing in the whirlpool, we ventured down the hall to the Nickels Lounge and enjoyed great customer service and cocktails. The lounge also had a blackjack and pulltab gaming side, which is a nice amenity for people chancing their luck! After a great night's sleep, we had breakfast at the Season's Cafe, located in the Ramkota. Again, the service was outstanding and the breakfast was delicious and reasonable. Upon request, we were able to get a late checkout to enjoy the whirpool again! All in all, it was a wonderful stay at the Ramkota! I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family!!

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding. The bar is like stepping back in time. The wait staff was very rude. The food was good in the banquet room, but once again the staff was terrible. I think a little attitude adjustment is in need. Maybe bussiness is so good there that they don't need to take of there customers.

We came to Bismarck for a weekend shopping trip with our kids and found this to be a great hotel. The location is great, right across the street from the Kirkwood Mall. The rooms were nice and clean and comfortable and the pool/waterslide area was a blast. They have a large waterslide, two smaller ones and a terrific play area for smaller kids. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was a nice restaurant with great service and good food. It is a large hotel and we were the farthest from the pool area, but it still wasn't that bad to get there. Would definitely stay here again next time.

We stayed in this hotel after another was filled up. The room was very nice and clean. It was located in a convenient location. The staff was pleasant enough considering the time we checked in. We didnt use the pool or restaurant so cant comment on that. The hotel is huge and they do need better signs directing you places. Otherwise, it was good!

Even though the rooms have been updated and they are pretty nice, I found many signs in my room the housekeeping is not doing there job. Confetti, other party traces and even a "after party" hint-hint item....

food is is good, just an older hotel.
