never again

with us in the room there were a bunch of other creatures likes bugs, cockroaches, etc. We sleep with lights on to avoid some of them. Room floor was more than dirty. Not a good experience for us. Thanks God we left early morning and was just one night. about 5 hours, but 5 long hours suffering all the above.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER

I PAID 51.87 for a microwave and refrigerator free WI/fi.Truth be told I never received either.When I entered my room I instantly smelled mold and wet carpet.The refrigerator inside didn't work no microwave at all One full set of towels stain on sheet.Bar needs more liquor doesn't have any chaser or mixer.The elevator was like riding the Tower of terror.Front desk clerk had a peaceful and cheerful attitude but the manager was arguing and using profanity.Soda machines take your change the front desk can't give refund for that.It was awful

Nice hotel but rude staff at breakfast

Hotel was nice. Room was clean and comfy. We checked in late night and the manager on night duty was very helpful. But the staff during morning breakfast was very rude. We asked if there is a microwave to heat food, and the lady scorned back asking why do we need a microwave. Overall nice hotel, room, convenient location..

Not a place I would stay again

I only stayed there one night. I was passing threw Orlando to get to Miami. I was looking for a affordable place just to stay for the night. The people that worked at the hotel were really friendly. But the rooms were awful especially the bathrooms

Cheap

The hotel was definitely a let down. Check-in wasn't until 3:00pm so my family and i had to wander around for six hours. Even though the breakfast buffet was only $4.00 it was mediocre and hard to eat. Simple things such as extra towels and soap cost extra. All of the towels in my room were dirty, but i guess you get what you pay for.

My first impression was that it was filty, dirty walls in the room, dirty bathrooms, dirty towels and supper nasty rug. Changed room 3 times and still was not happy. Please note im not picky but this one touched my nerves. Never again...

Not a 3 star hotel

The hotel was nice from the outside but took a turn for the worse as we entered. The hotel was overbooked and they were turning people away even though they had booking confirmation codes. The hotel definitely needs a some TLC, starting with the lobby. I began to feel uneasy about the stay and was worried about how our room would look and feel. Upon entering the room, we noticed that it did not have the appearance of a 3 star hotel. Magazines and paperwork cluttered the table and there were towels on the floor and one dry clean towel for use. I called and asked for additional towels and they said to come get them because they did not have anyone available to deliver them and housekeeping would not be in until 8 am the next morning. I received a knock on my door, thinking maybe we were getting towels and it was another couple trying to get into the room. We were given a room that was already rented out! The couple left for a couple of hours to go shopping only to find my family showering and getting ready for bed. We were then contacted several time from the customer service desk to find articles left by the other couple. This went on until 12:30 am. I will definitely not book a room at that hotel, or any of the "sister" hotels in my future. What a terrible experience.

In very bad shape

I booked this hotel for its low price, thinking it'd be ok since it's a Ramada. Well, the hotel is in horrible shape, very dirty, not kept up and quite depressing. The bar closes at 9 and might as well since it's stocked with virtually nothing. You have to listen to the poor girl explain to customer after customer that she can't make their drink, offer that beer, etc. because the bar isn't stocked. And really, who ever heard of a hotel bar that closes at 9pm??? The restaurant, a stretch to call it that, is usually closed, but a few items are offered on a menu that you have to order at the bar. There are a few, meager items at a poor little buffet in the morning, but terrible looking so I didn't bother. And again, the "restaurant" area is dirty and warn looking with old tables and chairs that you don't want to sit at. The carpeting throughout is filthy, many things don't work, and the staff seems frustrated and resigned for failure. Need I go on? Forget this place. It's cheap, but awful.
