“Clean Rooms & Good Service Made a Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

My husband and I had to go to Jacksonville on business. We have stayed at Ramada Inn in Stuart, FL numerous times in the past. We have always had good experience with them so we decided to give this one a chance.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating. My husband has a heart condition and we had wanted to stay in a room on the bottom floor which they were able to accommodate us. The room we stayed in was one of the cleanest rooms we have seen at a hotel in a long time. I usually will wipe down everything with Clorox Wipes. It was a nice surprise to see how clean this room was kept. The bed was comfortable, however the noise from the interstate and parking lot was a bit of a nuisance. That isn't the hotel's fault. Just a warning that there is a city noise. The ice machine was not working on the bottom floor. We did skip on the Continental Breakfast because after tasting the coffee and seeing the spread we were not impressed. The coffee was probably the worst tasting coffee we ever had. The thing that impressed us the most was the staff. After we had gotten to our room they called about 15 minutes later to make sure that we were satisfied with our room and wanted to know if there was anything else they could for us.

So overall our experience was a positive one due to the staff!

The hotel itself is somewhat dated but it was clean and thats the most important thing to me. Bed was comfortable and had nice fluffy pillows. The AC worked fine. Front desk clerk, Ray, was pleasant and responded quickly to any requests we had.

I would like to commend the Ramada for the fast and efficient service I recieved. Through an error I was charged for two nights that I did not stay. The personnel at the Ramanda acted in a courteous and professional manner in taking care of this matter to my satisfaction. Should I return to Jacksonville I will consider staying at the Ramada!!

I stayed in the hotel with my wife for a job interview. Early in the morning we checked out the hotel. My wife attended the interview and got selected. After interview my wife want to update some information on online application and we don't know where to go for internet. What we did we came back to the RAMADA hotel and requested one of the staff to allow us to stay in the checked out room to use the internet because still there was time for check out. The staff agreed and gave 2 hours to use the checked out room. My wife was so happy and she was so comfortable with the staff. However, we stayed in the same hotel for that evening and the following week with one of our family friend who also got selected. We personally feel the hotel is our luckiest. The hotel is very convenient and near to business places. I will give score4.75/5

I came across this motel purely by accident but most likely was simply following my guardian angel's directions. The motel itself is simple and cheap. I have no complaints, (except maybe they could spring for an in-room microwavefridge). The beds were comfortable and the air worked fine. Of course, like all American motels, be sure to wear slippers because the carpet is dirty. Otherwise, it was not so bad for a $60 dollar charge for 2 and a child. I noticed there was a nice BIG pool as well so would be a nice cool dip for you swimmers.
One major plus is, to my asian wife's delight, a geniuine Vietnamese Pho resturant connected to the motel. The food was simply YUMMY (with a capital YUMMY) and not priced too bad either. They even opened at 10 AM so my wife could have her Pho for breakfast as well. This place really adds to the value of the motel. I believe there is also a lounge inbetween the two, but you drinkers can check that out yourself.
Also they have a small nice breakfast with good coffee and even waffels.
Check out was fast and the I-95 was just one block away with a gas station right on the corner for that quick fill up and go go go!

We have been working hard on many improvements to the property and I'm confident that you will notice the changes if you come back and see us again.

I was travelling north, and I found this hotel to be an excellent alternative. It was so nice, so clean, that I am planning on coming back to enjoy its beautiful swimming pool. The breakfast.... just splendid! And included.
