Great location, not super special

The hotel smells kinda funky but it wasn't enough to keep me from staying there again. For the price I would expect a better facility, which needs updating. The beds were super comfy and there was free parking, which was a definite plus. If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room I would pick somewhere else, but if you are just going to be sleeping/showering it is fine.

Disgusting

The towels were dirty and there was an open/used soap in the shower upon arrival. I would never stay here again!

Worst Hotel Experience

For what you are paying to stay here, it was completely unacceptable. I do not knock hotels that are outdated, you can have a clean hotel that still has some furniture from the 70's, however, I don't think they have cleaned the rooms since the 70's. It was just dirty. We had to strip the bedding immediately because there were dried blood spots. The TV turned on, but didn't work, you were lucky if you could find a channel that you could make out what was going on. We saw TWO quarter-sized SPIDERS- one by the ceiling near the window and the second hanging from the ceiling. We had to shove toilet paper into a corner hole in wall where we thought the spiders may be coming from!!! The shower still had hair left in the drain. We were only in the hotel about 45 minutes before we had to leave. When we returned, our room was about 90 degrees. Our AC was obviously broken, there was hot heat blowing out of the fan on high. When we finally could not handle anymore, we went to the front desk and spoke to the manager (I will omit his name for his sake, however, you were incredibly rude and deserve to have your superiors know!) While we were expressing our concerns, a woman came into the hotel door, stood in line behind us and he began helping her. He literally just stopped listening/speaking to us mid-conversation and began checking this woman in. We stood there in disbelief and after he was finished helping the woman, he turned to us and asked "is there anything else I can help you with?" It was so bizarre. We have stayed at a Ramada before, many actually, and we have never experienced anything like this. I would hope that they are a company that stands behind their product/service and it is disappointing that we paid $150 for an experience this poor.

Just a night away

The check-in process was the slowest. It took Almost 40 mins to get checked in with reservations. I requested a king room and they were all sold out So I received a double bed for two adults. This wasn't one of my better experiences.

Older Hotel that needs Maintenance

The location is ok for the price. However, the room is old and musty and needs maintenance. Multiple minor problems with the room from the bathroom door didnt close to elevator lights didnt work.

Great Location

It was central to everything in the city! The corridor was loud and the room was very very small but had everything we needed. Great breakfast. Parking was strange but affordable. Would stay here again.

could be better

With all other hotels downtown, you would assume with the way the room was, it should have been a motel. There was a box TV with ten channel, no HBO. The WiFi didn't work, there was no ice in the ice machine. The coffee maker is inside the small bathroom. It was not worth $160.00 granted that was a deal for us through promotional codes saving 20%.
