Good value but can be noisy

The good: friendly staff; free, hot breakfast; located one block away from the metro subway system; clean; gated parking; many good and cheap eats within walking distance. The not so good: parking costs $16.50/night; hotel is clean but can use updates. The bad: our room was facing Vermont Street, and was noisy because it is a busy street and a bus stop was right in front. Overall, it's a simple, clean and inexpensive place to stay. Just ask for a room that's not facing Vermont Street when you check in and you should be fine.

Good value for money

I've stayed in high-end hotels, mid-range hotels and low-end motels in this area, and the Ramada is squarely in the mid-range... a good value for the money. Staff was helpful, room (toward the back) quiet and reasonably clean, wi-fi worked, parking cost $16.50/day but was convenient. There's a free continental breakfast including waffles or eggs (at least I think the prepared patty was eggs!); the motels give you a sticky bun sealed in cellophane. There's even a comedy club in the lounge on some nights. Perfectly fine for the money. Look online for room sales.
