I have stayed in many many hotels over the years including several stays at various Ramada's throughout the country. This is the first time I actually thought about asking for my money back. Our room was tiny, dark and reeked of cleaning supplies. It had tears in the wallpaper, rust in the bath tub, and was missing light bulbs. The carpet was stained and dirty looking. Clearly no one has upgraded anything but the TV in this room since the 70's. The bed spread and bed itself looked so worn out and dingy that the first thing I did was check for bed bugs! The pillows were almost completely flat but when we called the front desk to request 2 more they told us there were "no extra pillows in the whole hotel." Wow! At night there were a number of shady people loitering in the outdoor hallways...I did not feel safe walking from building to building. The kicker for us was after a horribly uncomfortable night sleep our wake up call, set for 5am came at 4am instead.
The lobby was overheated, and reeked of chlorine. Friends of ours had also reserved a room in this hotel--a non-smoking triple suite as was offered on their website. But at check in they were told, quite rudely, that the hotel didn't have any triple suites at all and therefore they couldn't have booked one. They settled for a double, after being assured it was non-smoking only to find an ashtray in their room. Upon request to be moved the desk clerk dismissed them saying that they were already in a non-smoking room no matter what the smell and ashtray might indicate.
The stay was $75---not a bad deal in general, but we would have gladly paid more money for a better nights sleep and good hospitality. Save yourself a night of tossing and turning and don't even look twice at this Ramada.
