My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding. Room was very nice and clean, along with amenities. However, the location was not our favorite. Would stay at another Ramada Plaza again.

Good place to stay with Family

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
Overall this place would be a great value if the rooms were cleaner! There was dust and grime in easy to see and reach areas. There was gum on the bathroom tile. The room felt dirty and I was a bit unpleased since I have a totter running around. The pool and stay were great!! Location couldn't be better for a fun weekend. Close to Dave and Busters and Sky Zone.

Nice enjoyable stay!

Would recommend Wed, Jun 10, 2015
Well the stay started off with a room change due to a little mold in the shower due to a previous leak. But management, who was unaware of the situation and very appreciative for making them aware of the issue, offered to put us in a suite. While we were there, we ate at the Old Chicago restaurant which is attached to the hotel. We had the thick crust pizza which was very delicious. At the end of the evening we went to the pool area and enjoy the jacuzzi and the waterslide during the adults only swim. The room was clean and equipped with a microwave and mini fridge which was handy. Overall it was an enjoyable experience!

A Nightmare Night

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 13, 2014
About 4 a.m. we were awakened by the very loud banging beneath our window of garbage pick-up trucks ( we assume). Then at 6 a.m. we endured 20 minutes of the fire alarm blaring. When we tried to use our room phone to ask the desk if the alarm was false, we discovered the phone was out of order. Our companion across the hall had a room phone that worked, but the desk did not answer. The fact that we could not receive a courtesy discount because "we had booked the reservation through a travel vendor instead of direct" was the final straw, after suffering with the tiny, inadequate bathroom and lack of any quality sleep. We would have been dollars ahead, and perhaps not any more sleep deprived if we'd sat up all night in our car.

Bad stay

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 13, 2014
Horrible noise levels from hall - could hear every walk-by conversation well into the night. Mold in bathroom; remote did not work; one plug did not work; ironing board - no iron. Stain on wall that made my wife nervous. Huge details missed, so imagine the little details left undone. Slow desk clerks. Hated this stay - paid $139 not sure I would go back if they paid me the same. Go anywhere else, at least there is a chance it would be good.

Dining

Stay downtown - it is worth the extra $100.

One night traveler but didn't have to be...

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 8, 2014
I came really far for a meeting/conference and needed to stay overnight in GR. I was so tired when I checked in but it went smoothly and the people at the desk were really nice. The room was great for the price but it goes down from there. When I ordered food the delivery guy came directly to my room when I asked to have him wait in the lobby - so lone travelers beware, I didn't get my wake up call in the morning and was late for my meeting and they charged my room for a long distance call because I dialed one plus the local area code. Instead of just taking it off after seeing it was local I got harangued at the desk and was even denied a receipt because I booked through a travel site. So they want to charge your card but don't want to give you a receipt for it if you book on a travel site. I had to dispute the change with my card company right then and there, and then the woman that was helping me was being distracted by a colleague who was completely ignoring the fact that she was with a guest. It was weird. I was in mid sentence and she literally just walked up to the desk and started telling the desk agent she finally confirmed the group she was working on and that her son Joey got the dog anyway even though he didn't deserve it. I was just looking at her and kept talking. LOL, I couldn't stop. It was weird and amazingly annoying. Joey probably does deserve the dog but the woman just doesn't notice him. I get to add that because it was apart of my conversation. I was going to ask for an extra night and just big up the additional charge but ended up staying at a different hotel. Stay here if you like haggling and being late for your meetings.

Shopping hint

Great farmers market in downtown dome area off freeway if your interested in all natural or vegan eats but be prepared to spend some major bucks. On the flip its a very walkable downtown area.
