such a bad experience never again

on arrival, nothing special, but once in the room, impossible to switch on the light (had to call maintenance), temperature 16°C, ridiculous!, no chairs in the room (only 1 office chair), I had asked for a king-size and got without prior notice a (small) queen-size bed and a not asked for upgrade with a sort of sitting room.; but everything small, no central light and the other standing or side lamps inefficient The bath was very small (not even 4 square meter!), only 1 towel, the bathrobes had to be asked for, the light in the shower was not working (took them 2 days and 2 demands to fix it). The toilet paper was not renewed on time. The power outlets were or hidden behind desk, or so far away from the (miniscule courtesy) cafe maker that we had to put the cafe maker on the floor. The pool was another disaster: small, extremely shallow and fresh, the notice in the changing rooms: wash before swimming!, but no soap in the dispensers; the towels had to be asked at the reception desk, the fitness room was the size of a private fitness room, no water dispensers or paper towels. The maintenance was bad, a half used bar of (courtesy) soap was left sitting on the sink in its soap stained cup, the contraption under the sink for storing the towels (small and not soft) fell apart. The rooms were cleaned very superficially. As a test, I dropped an information leaflet from the desk, 4 days later it was still lying on the ground. never to be booked again I do not know if this is the usual situation for the Ramada hotels, but this is definitively below acceptable standard

Not Impressed

Hotel staff was ok but when we checked in there were no bell staff at all. The room was fair, clean but nothing to write home about. The elevators were very small and they just about fit us and our luggage. Nobody else would have been able to ride with us. They put us on the 3rd floor in the last room furthest from the elevator, there were stains on the carpets. No Ice machines on the floors - you had to take the elevator down to the dingy basement where there was one machine. The restaurant "Shade" was never open...when it was there was nobody dining there....tells you something. We ordered room service one morning - USD 41.00 for two aweful meals - the worst. Parking costs CAN 22.00 per day - no Security anywhere to be found. The pool was small and there was mold and mildew throughout it, the whirlpool hardly had any whirl - very little pressure...luke warm. The showers, steam room and sauna stunk of mold and mildew. Would not stay here again if you paid me!! Shamefull

The man who is working in the front desk is not friendly. The garbage basket was not clean and placed by the bed.

Not a good value for the price

We visited the Toronto area and stayed in this hotel. I remember Ramada having a fairly good reputation, however this hotel was old and it was very noticeable. The carpet in the hallways was stained and the hallway itself appeared dark and had a strange odor. The first room we were given had small sinkholes in the floor that made noise when you walked over them. The carpet was also stained along with the tile in the bathroom. The bathroom was poorly maintained with stains and poor caulking jobs around the tile. The toilet pipes are clearly visible, so it gave that public restroom vibe. We requested a room change and we were accommodated. The second room was not much better. The floor had better lighting in the hallway, but the carpets were still very stained. Inside the room, the floor still made noises when you walked in certain spots and the bathroom again was poorly maintained. We did not feel comfortable. When we asked the staff about other rooms available, after many questions on our part, we were told that there were updated/renovated rooms with newer bathrooms. Asked if we could have one, was told that they were all filled. Very disappointing experience.

Meh

First time staying in a Ramada, wasn't that impressed. Room was adequate and comfortable, however the decor was dated, a la 1990's, little bit worn around the edges. The room carpet was worn and stained, I was afraid to go barefoot. The hallways were dark and old-looking. But, for the price, it was within walking distance to where I needed to be.

Nice for couple

The service was great. And also the staff were very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is a bit expensive, but overall we are satisfied.

Close to to the Ballpark? Please!!!

I booked this hotel thinking I would be able to walk to Rogers baseball park according to the information. Not close enough to walk it was a short subway ride. the Hotel was clean but off the beaten path in back of Yonge a few blocks and you had to go through a neighborhood. It was a ok Hotel not luxurious but do able.

Good Location

It was an average hotel. Wireless wasn't free, parking wasn't free. The bathroom was very small. The bed, on the other hand, was enormous.
