One Problem....

Great hotel except the room didn't get cleaned after my 2nd night of a 3 night stay. Left a message at the desk next to their cash register and it still didn't get cleaned. That's the only complaint. Staff is friendly and decent breakfast choices.

Arnold's Park is the best for family entertainment and beautiful view of the lake. See if they have free concerts on the weekend.

good place to stay

Staff was polite and helpful. Had some minor problems with the key card lock on my room. It just plain outright malfuction and was in no way the staffs fault. They were very prompt in helping me get in my room and manage to get it reprogrammed the next day while I was gone taking care of some buisness

Good Experience

We selected this hotel because it was less expensive than the others in the lakes area. It is in an odd location, sandwiched in between two car lots but it is no problem. It has everything you need in a hotel and you can drive a short distance and be where the action is. The pool/hot tub area was nice. We used it every day.

You don't always get what you pay for!

Checked in and was upgraded to a room with one bed when we needed two beds.The room we suppose to have had a broken lock and the hotel was full. So had to take the room. Went to the room and it wasn't cleaned and smelled like someone had a hell of a party in there. So had to leave for a couple of hours while the room was clean somewhat.

Comfortable place to stay

the hotel was very nice, clean and quiet. My only complaint was hard to reach staff and when they did come to the desk to help, I felt like I was disturbing something more important.

In the Middle of Everything

If you are looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable place to stay, this is the place. We had never been to the area before and the Ramada is in the middle of all the lakes and attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

Bad Experience

The hotel is over priced. My non-smoking room smelled like someone had smoked in it at some recent point. High speed internet was extremely slow. Staff was professional but not friendly in anyway. Breakfast offered was poor. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

gool location for the price

We received an excellent price on Orbitz. We liked the location of this hotel as it was not far from Lake Okoboji and yet it was more within our price range. The staff were very helpful and polite.
