“great for those who are going to NB to float the river”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

this place is kid-friendly, has good breakfast selections, and is great if you want to go to New Braunfels to float down the river. It is not a posh hotel and definitely needs updating. But it serves it's purpose. There are LOADS of crickets, but I did not hear them (my 7 year old boy loved them, lol).

Granted this hotel is a tad outdated, the experience made up for that. The staff was great, so nice & quick to help w/ whatever you needed!
The breakfast was warm & fresh all 3 mornings of my trip last week. Scrambled eggs, buscuits & gravy, waffle makers & sausage, toast & cereals too.
The pool was sooooo nice & relazing & very clean, my kids and i both enjoyed that!
The rooms, though as mentioned above "outdated" were very clean & welcoming!
after reading reviews on here, i kept my expectations quite low for this stay, but when we left i just didn't understand where those came from!? Everybody was so helpful & everything was so well kept, my kids even enjoyed free wifi, & the bar, well i enjoyed that one.
i'd recommend this hotel to anybody who asked about New Braunfels! It's location kept us close to the river, & close to Schlitterbahn, the workers at the front desk even recommended some wonderful places to eat w/in miles of the hotel.
all in all, great trip. (:

Room Tip: the Fwy does get a little noisy, so i'd recommend a room that doesn't face it, unless you...

Let me start with the good... It close to the river/tubing action. For those who have been tubing, you know that the last thing you want to do when you get out of the river is drive a long ways to your hotel/motel. This place is close, no more than 7-8 minutes. The breakfast was fairly decent. They had a variety of different selections from biscuits with gravy to cereal and waffles.

The bad...
The room was pretty filthy; from mold strains, to dirty carpeting, to raunchy smells. The kicker was waking up in the morning with new guests in our room... CRICKETS! 5 of them to be exact. Ima not sure how they got in there. They could have at least spared a few bucks for their stay in our room, the crickets that is, at 1 whopping $115 a night for a 3 star joint.

Anywho, I know, I know, you get what you paid for. YES, I agree. It was last minute trip and if we had more time I would have picked another place. I guess it did it's job; providing a place to crash for the night after hours of soaking in the sun.

I'm not saying don't stay there but I'm also not saying to stay here...

The way I see it, every hotel you stay in is a gamble no matter the star rating. It is the luck of the draw.

Pros:

Inexpensive place to stay for the evening.
Pool looked nice.
Nice little club inside main building.
Restaurant was very inexpensive and nice.
Grounds were kempt, except trim shrubs and edge lawn a bit. Re-paint exterior.
Breakfast was pretty ok.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS, SLEEPING BAGS, AND SOME LYSOL WIPES YOU WILL BE OK.
OK PLACE TO STAY FOR A NIGHT.

Cons:

Parking was not good due to the club crowd taking up room parking spots.
Beds had one top sheet and thin blanket. Had it been winter, brrr! Matresses were awful. Sheets were suspicious as was entire bedding.
Bathroom was dirty. Mold on ceiling. Shower curtain stained and dirty. Towel rack broken. One towel for whole room (?), itchy and scratchy as it was.
Lamp shades were either askew or missing.
Fridge was dirty inside.
Door would not latch properly to restroom.

FIX THESE bathroom ISSUES, REFRESH WITH PAINT AND BEDDING. SPEND A BIT AND YOU COULD HAVE A GREAT PLACE!

This review is for my experience with hotel management only since I had to cancel the trip due to a family medical issue. General Manager Dan Henry was very helpful with some special requests and even intervened with Expedia when they were less than helpful. A lot less. When I am finally able to reschedule my New Braunfels trip I will definitely book a room at The Ramada.

Used Priceline to get this room and over paid. It was a 2 star motel and showed it. Everything worked and was close to eating and the freeway, it just was showing it's years. Breakfast was good, even though they served boiled eggs instead of the usual breakfast fare. I'll try to avoid staying here by only using 2 1/2 star + places in the future.
