We stayed at the hotel for a few nights this past week. Front desk staff was great in assisting us. Rooms were clean and repainted recently. Obviously a older hotel but still in good condition now that someone is taking care of it. Great deals at the bar!

There must have been a major overhaul since the other reviews . Because of a huge lightning storm , we decided to stop in this little town for the night . Unknown to us there were 2 big events going on over the weekend and rooms were scarce .
The fellow behind the desk was very nice . The hallway to our room was very hot , but once we got into our room it was nice and cool . It was clean and comfortable . Wifi didn't work for us , but after awhile they reset the router and we had good connections .
Front desk staff at check out were also very friendly . There was a nice , large area for kids to run around near the pool .

DO NOT STAY HERE! REPEAT . . . DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! Back side of hotel totally dark. Exterior doors propped open with rocks. Inner hallways dark, dank, holes in carpet, stained ceilings. Rooms dirty and smelly. Big sex party going on across the hall from our rooms with loud music, screaming, etc. We were so scared, we left immediately.

During my stay here i encountered A very rude staff. They were always low on towles when i asked for more i was told that the didnt have that many to give me extra. The carpets were stained and mold was growing through the pictures on the wall. I saw guest doing work that should have been done by the staff. Cleaning parking lots, also over heard a guest say that she had to unclogg her own sink cause there was no maintence man. I had actually took a shower and didnt have no hot water. The manager was very rude and didnt present themselves in a business way. The worst hotel i had ever been too. Guess i will be a Best Western Customer from now on.

Where to begin?...From the moment I walked in, I knew my friends and I were in for a treat. After our car broke down we were referred to the Ramada Cambridge Inn. After we got our cards, my roommate and I went to unlock our room only to find it was bolted shut. That was only the beginning of our Ramada adventure. A worker was even kind enough to inform us that the Fire Martial found the building to be hazardous to the patrons' safety. The ceiling tiles were out of place and you could clearly tell that mold had been festering overhead. Some rooms were strictly for people with pets, however, the rooms had obviously not been cleaned well enough because one of my family members got a severe allergic reaction- yikes! We enjoyed the nasty carpet stains, the continental breakfast (mini muffins and toast), and last but certainly not least, the game room equipped with phone books and a little tykes play set. Overall, our Ramada stay was absolutely fantastic. . . NOT!

Arrived at the hotel and was greeted by friendly staff, offered special rate $49.95 not a bad price. Checked into a nice clean room looks just like the other hotels that charge $100 per night. Bed was soft plenty of cable channels, high speed avail in rooms. Would definatly stay again.
