Great staff...very small room. Seemed clean enough. It was a little loud, especially on Friday and Saturday night, but it's in the middle of a party zone...they provide ear plugs however! I just turned the AC on. Appreciated the free shuttle to the airport!

New years trip

My fiancé and friends all stayed here. Our room for 2 was a bit small and a little cramped but we love the location of the hotel, the 24 hour restaurant/bar next door and the roof top patio. This is our go-to hotel when staying in the Gas lamp area of San Diego.

Awesome trip

My boyfriend and I wanted to runaway for a weekend and decided to stay at the ramada . we both loved it. My boyfriend loved how it was right in the middle of all the fun we didn't have to drive any where. The room was a little small but we are use to living in a studio so it wasn't too bad for us. I would recommend you stay here if you want something affordable with nice helpful staff and a great location. Only downside is the parking.

Great Location

I work in a job that is all about customer service so when I travel I am particularly critical of the places I stay and the service I receive. I know that everyone has a bad day, been there, but while you don't always have control over your circumstances, you do have control over quality of your work. The hotel was charming and I really like having a restaurant on site, making eating options available 24 hours a day. I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and helpful the staff was and the hotels over all proximity to restaurants and shops was great! The room was cozy and clean and the cleaning staff actually waiting until a reasonable hour before they started knocking at your door, usually around 10:00-10:30 am (other places I have stayed they have started knocking as early as 8:30am and that's just ridiculous!). I would stay again!

Average Hotel Room

This hotel was average. The manager and staff were friendly, but there is nothing much to say besides that. The hotel has an old elevator which was cool to ride in. The room was really small and cramped. The restaurant was overpriced, and the parking is bad.

Great downtown location

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived early from the airport when things were very busy. Their personal ramada shuttles were busy but they had a different shuttle pick me up free of charge. They also took me on on their shuttle on time to the airport at the end of my stay. The hotel was very comfortable. Everything was clean. I wouldn't mind staying here again! :)
