Nice friendly hotel

Very friendly staff and hotel was very clean. The bar close at 8:30-09:30 it would nice if they had room service or had a bar in the rooms. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. It would be nice if the rooms had microwave and wine openers.

Disappointing stay...

We booked this room looking for a place to get away for the weekend and take in the local sights without paying the high price for a room on the beach. We were only 30-45 minutes from the St. Augustine Outlets and beach which we visited. There is a lot around the hotel as far as shopping and eating. The hotel itself though was very disappointing. It was dirty. The stairs has trash and food on them and looked like they hadn't been swept in at least a week. At the top of the stairs, someone spilt what looked like a drink and fries during the night. That morning I thought surely they will mop the area. Nope, the fries were up swept up but the sticky mess was still there waiting for some to fall on. We noticed a flower pot dumped over on the pool deck when we arrived. It was still there when we checked out 2 days later. During the night I got out of bed to find a big roach at my feet. After that I wore shoes and didn't get up without turning on a light. There was also a spider in the room and the outlets were covered with dust. It was also very noisy during the night. Groups would stand outside the rooms and laugh very loudly. This lasted about 30 minutes twice so they weren't just passing by our door. While we left for the day, we expected to have our room cleaned and towels replenished, etc. but nothing. They didn't even come! We had to go ask for towels just to shower. The lady at the desk was kind but couldn't really do anything as there was no one from housekeeping there at 6:00 pm. She offered to send a maintenance man up to clean our room. I opted out of that. Breakfast was nice but limited. Needless to say, we will choose somewhere else to stay if we return to the area.

Great place for the price we paid

Great stay for the price. The staff was friendly and rooms were clean. The beds could have been a little more comfortable but like I said for the price we paid you can't expect a 4 or 5 star hotel

They could do better....

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. We came back a second time because we loved the price and the breakfast buffet in the morning. As I noticed before, many guests live here making the hotel feel more like public housing this time which was unsettling. The swimming pool was full of debris which was dissappointing after a long, hot day of traveling. The water in the hot tub was so cloudy and full of debris from the trees that I instructed my children not to enter it. The floor of the bath tub in our room was stained from so many uses that we did not feel comfortable taking a bath in it and the A/C unit barely ran cold which was really awful because of the temperatures outside running into the 90s. When we checked in there were 3 people waiting to be served and only one man at the desk on a Sunday afternoon which we felt was odd considering the hotel advertises itself as a conference center. The doors to the housekeeping offices were open and bins of dirty towels, sheet and dishes lined one of the hallways leading to the pool and remained there for every trip down the hallway we made that evening. We won't be coming back.

AnnuAl road trip thru JAX

This is my third stay at the Ramada in Mandarin on my the drive to Miami. It's my cats favorite hotel. I enjoy the Saturday night sefood buffet for my favorite crab legs with prime rib. Maybe I take in the comedy show next year. Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. Rock on Ramada. See your u next year.
