“My flight was cancelled and this fit the bill.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

My flight was cancelled and this hotel was clean, friendly and had a free shuttle to the airport.
The airport is only 10 mins away and the brekkie was ok too.
I was only there for the evening and slept in the hotel, not my first choice in a hotel, but by far not the worst experience either.

The room was clean, except for the fact that they need to work on painting. Bathroom is small and the door on the backside was not painted. The front desk is nice, it's not a bad place, but I was on vacation and looking for high end hotels which this is not. It is close to everything though and I never felt I was on the bad side of town. The halls are a bit musty, we went in the room and had to go and get some Frebreeze, as the room had a wierd smell. Overall if you are looking for value stay here. This is not Ramada as you expect, it is what it is.. I can see that the people that own it care and are upgrading as fast as they can. Hopefully next time I go and I have to stay here, they will have done a lot more upgrading.

Thank you for your feedback, to be clear we are NOT a HIGH END hotel, we are an upgraded LIMITED SERVICE BUDGET Hotel. We do care and we are clean and provide a comfortable great place to stay in Point Loma a desirable suburb of San Diego. We are not under a complete renovation but constantly upgrade what we can, we have a pool as well as Free WiFi and Great Free Breakfast and Mini Mart in the lobby and we have many restaurants nearby and we are right by the harbor as well Thanks for the feedback we will forward this info on!

Each month business takes us to San Diego where we look forward to our stay at the Ramada/San Diego Airport
An example of the updates they are regularly making is the elimination of carpeting which was replaced with much more sanitary vinyl plank wood flooring

Comic-Con flooded the hotels in San Diego and forced me away from my preferred hotels. I chose Ramada solely on the basis of their name, but was disappointed to learn that it is a privately owned franchise, and not the world-class hotel I expected. The corridors were musty with overtones of disinfectant. There was a full and smelly trash barrel outside my room. My room was musty with the same hint of disinfectant in the air. The air condition ran but didn't cool the room and there were parts broken off on it. The electrical outlet for the coffeemaker didn't work so I had to move the coffeemaker to an outlet behind the TV. I had to open the sliding door to the balcony to let fresh air into the room and help cool it off. The room did appear neat and the bath fixtures and vanity areas were clean and stocked. As a traveler with asthma, I cannot tolerate musty surroundings, but then, no traveler should have to. The staff was helpful, pleasant, and courteous, and there are a number of good restaurants nearby. This could be a much better hotel with a makeover and some better ventilation. I've stayed at other hotels in San Diego that are just as old or older than this one, and they are very nice. I won't be back.

First we want to say we apologize if your stay was not what you expected, Comic-Con does drive up the prices however I can assure you were were at fair market value for this time. As far as "World Class" the Ramada is a limited service budge hotel, Our building is an older building and we have upgrade many things and our pictures are very true to our rooms, we have a mini mart in the lobby and a pool and a great Free Breakfast and great customer service. We wish you better luck in your travels and thank you for the feedback.

I would rather prefer to stay at Ramada than at the old barracks. Can't say its the best hotel but it connects to beaches and it is quiet. Reservation is easy. Downside is that the highway is far from the place which makes it an inconvenient

Great stay but reserved 2 rooms for our big family vaca :-) 6 weeks prior to our trip but our 2 rooms were down the hall from each other....otherwise would've been a 5...breakfast was good for being complimentary, beggers can't be chooser though :-) they always had enough and always had some healthy choices! There were plenty of other places to eat near by though! GREAT LOCATION!

We stayed at the ramada inn airport location and found our room to be a perfect room with a king size bed, micro, fridge, table and chairs. It was very clean and comfortable! The pool was sparkling clean and the breakfasr was wonderful. The staff were awesome, friendly and helpful!
Will definitely stay again!
