Would Not Stay Here Again

The staff was helpful but this is an old hotel in need of a remodel. It's looking a little rough. I walked under exposed pipes in the hallway on the way to my room. The bottom of the bathroom door was crumbling and decaying. Shower looked a little rusty and mildewy around the edges. Desk chair was much too short for the desk, which made it unusable. Lastly, there was a large smear of something (food??) on the wall beside my bed. Yuck.

Disappointed about the pool

Booked this during a medical stay for a young child. Specifically booked for the really cool pool. Arrived to find the kiddie pool being painted and the other pool and spa being very dirty and run down. VERY comfortable room. Bedding was fantastic. Don't bother with the adjoining restaurant. It's overpriced bar food. Breakfast was pretty good.

Cold, dirty and rundown

We went here after my daughters medical appointments hoping to have a good time with the kids after a stressful day....huge mistake! This place is awful! Our room was a dump, definitely not what one would expect for the price considering it had broken doors, mold in the tub and broken furniture. Then you get to the pool area and it's even worse. It was like trying to swim outside in the winter....it was freezing in there! My kids didn't even want to go back to swim because they were so cold after the first time not to mention two of the basketball hoops were broken right off so we couldn't even shoot hoops. All in all just a horrible place to stay.

Clinic visit

We stayed here while my husband was being evaluated at the Mayo Clinic. It was adequate for our needs, nothing great, but also nothing bad. The staff was generally pleasant, the Continental Breakfast was there.

Your children will have fun here

Our kids loved the pool. The location was handy with accessibility to restaurants and shopping. Rooms were a little run-down, but worked. Very enjoyable weekend.

Huge Disappointment

This Ramada is extremely out dated, our room wasn't clean, telephone didn't work, huge stains on carpet and windows hadn't been cleaned in years, the exercise was equipment was outdated and broken, and finally the continental breakfast was definitely nothing great. The only thing I liked was that we could take the shuttle to and from the Mayo clinic.

Very disapointed

I booked and paid for this reservation in April. We arrived June 4 to check in and were told that the King size, pool view room I PAID FOR was not available as the previous people decided to stay longer. The desk clerk was young and rude saying " well, if it's not there - it's not there. Not much I can do" He gave us two queens and basically said take it or leave it. After the first night I asked again about the room I had booked, they offered us a regular king away from the pool. The highway noise was so loud we thought the window was open - it was not. I asked about a refund so we could go elsewhere - no refunds... There was a filthy large fan about 10 feet from our door that squealed non-stop. Nothing they could do about that either... We came here for an appointment at the Mayo Clinic and this stress and hassle was not needed. When we checked out we were told they could not provide us with a copy of the bill to review because we booked online. I will NEVER book a Ramada property again. * The people who cleaned the rooms and took care of the breakfast area did a great job.

Visiting family

Had a wonderful time. The pool area was nice. Could of been warmer in the pool area. Also, less kid bday parties on the weekends. There was at least 3 that i could see. They took over all the tables and chairs. Kept grabbing them and pushing them together making it hard for hotel stayers to sit and relax. Loved your bed pillows!! Would love to know where the hotel orders them from. Continental breakfast was great!! Could of used another wing back chair in our room instead of one. We had a room with king bed very comfy. Staff was wonderful!
