Go Elsewhere

Driving in to the parking lot from the airport something didn't sit well with me. The covered driveway was taped off so I had to drive around the building and dodge potholes . A guest at the counter said that "Man Ramada does nothing but steal your money." The lobby had an old musty smell to it. That's where the fun began. I opened the door to my room and it looked like I'd stepped back 35 years in the past. The carpet was dirty, stained and old. The wallpaper was stained yellow and was peeling. I put my luggage down and noticed a Jawbone earpiece in the corner and it stayed in the same position for 3 days so I know that my room was not vacuumed thoroughly if not at all. The first thing that I do is normally take pictures of my room to inventory what is was like when I arrived so I cannot be accused of something later. I didn't even have the energy because my life energy was sucked out entering the past. Walking to the window I pulled the curtains closed because the room was facing the street and there were people smoking outside my window. The smell of smoke seeped through the cracks in the window. The entrance to the hotel's restaurant was just feet away from my room. Not only is this very easy to enter and the hotel without entering the lobby, it was where the smokers gathered to smoke. I was only going to be at the hotel to sleep due to work. That's where I was wrong. I left the hotel to head to work and came back after 7 pm. Now the parking lot was full and there people hanging out everywhere and the characters were very sketchy. People were going in and out of the restaurant entrance undetected. People were roaming the halls unrestricted and with the overwhelming amount of people in the hotel was overwhelming the two hotel members at the front desk. From the time I arrived until around 2 am there was constant walking, yelling, running in and out the hotel. Someone actually fell against my window at 1:30 am. I was so over the hotel at this point. Taking a shower I noticed more peeling wallpaper, a toilet seat that wasn't cleaned. The caulk was yellow and there were unsanded caulk filled holes where towel and soap dishes. The tissue holder was not securely fastened into the sink. That yellowing only comes from years of smoking in the hotel room. I'd suggest that Ramada levels this place and start over or relocate. They should pay the owner of the restaurant to find a new location. A remodel would cost too much. I'd recommend that you go anywhere else in the major hotel chains over this Ramada.

OK for the price

The location isn't the best, but I guess the price is OK for the value if you were only looking for a place to crash for the night.

Turn Away

I am not one to write bad reviews for something. I am also a person who always sees the positives in things. That being said, I shall list below what we encountered at this motel so you can make an informed decision. The Cons: 1. We booked a room with a fridge and microwave. When we got to our room, there was not either. I asked for them at the front desk and they said they were out. They clearly either don't have any or they overbook that type of room consistently. Luckily we had not bought perishable food items like we thought about. 2. The carpet in our room was so dirty it turned our feet black, so we did not walk barefoot. 3. There is no ventilation in the room at all, so it is incredibly humid, even after taking a cool shower. It was so bad it made pages in books and cards curl. 4. The staff took all the pool towels at 10 even though the pool was open until 11, so we just dripped all the way to our room. 5. Our room smelled like smoke, despite the motel saying it is smoke free, all of our things, including my pillow case, smell like smoke now. 6. The hot tub was not functioning, and the heated pool's heat lamps were not on. 7. The exercise room had caution tape all around the door and no one indicated it was closed upon check in. 8. The housekeeping staff threw away the bar soap I had by the sink both days. They provided 2 bars of soap. I put one by the sink to wash my hands after I used the bathroom. The next day it was gone, so I opened the bath soap and did the same. The next day it was gone again and not replenished! Luckily I bring my own shower soap so I could just use that. 9. There were about 7 gnats/fruit flies in our room. I killed them all but one during our stay, but they got into our doughnuts :(. The Pros: 1. It is located right by the highway with easy access to downtown. It is very easy to find/navigate to. 2. There are good restaurant options in the area including a steak place down Shadeland. 3. The continental breakfast was typical of a continental style breakfast of cereal, yogurt, fruit, muffins, bagels, juice. The apple juice was all natural. 4. The staff we interacted with was VERY friendly, especially the guy who was stocking the breakfast. Super nice and respectful individual. 5. The blackout curtain was SUPER effective. We could not tell when the sun came out at all! All-in-all I will ***not*** stay here again. It got us by, but I know I could find much better options in the future.

This hotel was on the three-star list and had everything we expected. Ramada can be counted on for good service.
