“We loved it there the best stay at any hotel”
Reviewed November 15, 2008

We had taken a cruise to Hawaii and decided to spend some time in San Diego and stayed at the Ramada Inn Limited Air Port and were very very satisfied. The people who work there were always very helpful and friendly and willing to help us in anyway.

My husband is handicapped and they made sure to accomodate us. The breakfast was just great with a very nice selection including waffles. The rooms were very very clean and housekeeping did a very good job. They were always cleaning the outside and inside and the floors where clean enough to eat on. We arrrived before check in time which is 3 in the afternoon and we were there by 10:30 AM and they made sure to accomodate us. People who write bad reviews for this hotel must be spoiled people who expect to get a $400 a night room for allot less but still be pampered. The staff all went out of their way to be nice to everyone. We tell everyone about the great experience we had at this hotel and will definitely book there again.

Stayed October 2006

I Travel Quite alot to San Diego, California, for, Pleasure and Business Purposes. I have, stayed, at the Ramada Limited/Airport, on All My stays in San Diego, and, have, been wll Pleased, and, satisfied, with the Hotel, and, the Very Great and Friendly Helpful Staff, They Have at Their Hotel. The Hotel, is, Well Kept, and, Very Budget Minded, for the Area it is located(Pt Loma) I keep Coming Back, and, I cannot, say, How Great this Ramada Limited/Airport. Free Shuttle, to and from the SD Airport to Hotel, is another great feature There.

We chose this place based on price and location. There are other hotels in the area which we will try next time. It seems to have inadequate standards of what I consider normal maintenance. The property is worn and the painting and maintenace are sub-standard or incomplete. It was not very dirty which would not have been a surprise.

We were there for 2 nights on a weekend and saw and heard several members of tour groups on busses (tip - if you stay, get a room far from the lobby).

Again, not a bad place if you just want a place to sleep but don't expect to be dazzled or pampered at all. The staff was courteous, and responsive to requests but some have a language barrier (Indian?).

when we arrived we expected much more from Ramada,by the look of the outside and foyer area. First of all the Indian lady who was at the front desk and was the manager was rude and ubhelpful later in the day when our wireless would not work. We had to drive around to the back where the pool is to park. The room was just grose. It stank and everything,including thye bed was damp. We did complain about this but no one seemed to care. we were charged $110 a night which is ridiculous.We did not even attempt to go down and look at the breakfast. My advice: STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!

The hotel is needing some good cleaning. The rooms are very basic and they seemed to have updated the vanity and painted the walls in our room at least. The carpets were dirty. Our child was barefoot the 1st night in the room and her feet got filthy. The pool was dirty and not used in awhile. They have a "cocktail lounge" which is basically a pool hall. We passed it a few times to get to our room. The men's bathroom door that the patrons used was open. You could hear all their cursing and conversations as you passed. The rooms were very small and cramped especially the shower/toilet area. Also the shower head was very low. I am 5' 5" and had to duck to get my hair wet. The staff seemed to be friendly but I had a feeling its a family run operation and for a hotel of this size that is not a good thing. They did have complimentary breakfast which we did use. Also alot of traffic noise.

I always thought the Ramada name meaned something. This property was not what I would normally stay at. I needed a quick place to stay for the night before court in downtown San Diego and this was an affordable ($99) choice and close to where I needed to go. I sorta like the mental asylum comparisons. Just getting anywhere in the hotel was like a walk through a ghetto. Everything needs updating. The room did have a stench. The bathroom was tiny. The TV was outdated. The ice machine did not work. Pool and jacuzzi. I don't know. The carpets in the whole property should be discarded. It served its purpose, but would not stay there again.

This place has rooms are OK , we had clean bed sheets and clean bath room. Two double bed. Wifi never worked. Breakfast was nothing comparable to Marriott . Mostly froze stuff, some cereals. free breakfast free parking.

For people who like to drink there is a attached bar.

This flow of the hotel is such that we never could figure out how to easily reach front desk at all during our 1 night stay. There is one lift and of you have lot s of luggage then there are few places yoy need to lift luggage . b'cos there no matter how you come to your rooms ( some rooms) you will have to cross 3-4 placess where there are 4-5 steps !!! So was really a PAIN.

WIFI did not work at all ...even thou signal was fantastic!!!
Some thing wrong with the hotel router setup.complaining to front desk did not help.They had no clue!!!

ALL in all if you have a better place in mind then stay away from this place. But if you have light luggage and want to catch next flight and want to stay one night then you can stay here.If you have habit of getting drunk then you can do so and walk to your room without driving :-))

So will I stay here next time , no way!!
