Terrible experience

We were shocked that this Ramada was so terrible. To begin with, there was no elevator in the hotel and we were on the second floor with 5 large cases. Room was NOT clean. We were afraid to walk barefoot on the carpet. Bathroom door was warped and would not close. Bedsheets felt sticky....not clean. Bathtub was dirty. Two of our bathtowels smelt like someone had spilt coffee on them. I was seriously worried about bedbugs. Terrible experience! Waste of money.

Needs some work

I am from st. Joe but now live in denver. The ramada used to be one of the best places to stay. The rooms and lobby and hallways need to be updated. Monkey cove is so cool and the rooms should compliment it, not ruin it.

Good small family vacation

Having a gym would of been better. A dealer pool area for adults. We went to the pool and really enjoyed the slide. I might consider coming back.

Kansas City getaway

Check in went very well. Did not know till checking in that there was NO elevtor, we were assigned a room on 2nd floor. Could not change to 1st floor as they were booked full. I have had knee replacement. Ate at Wiskey Creek, it is attached to Ramada Inn, food and service was very good. Retired for the night only to have a commotion right outside of our door from 1:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Ask the people to take the argument somewhere else, they did finally, just down the hall!!! Would stay again, but will request room on 1st floor. The location was good for getting to the Kansas Speeday for the races.

Fun for all

This is our third year staying at the Ramada while visiting the Chiefs training camp. Our seven year old daughter loves Monkey Cove and we hear about it from her weeks before and after our stay! We always eat at the adjacent Whiskey Creek restaurant for dinner and then the in-hotel breakfast before we leave for training camp. Fantastic value and fun for everyone.

horrible water park

The pool had sand in it. The floating tubes were all deflated. The pool aside restaurant never opened. Thought it was gonna be a great adventure for my 3 boys but they was ready to leave after a couple of hours.

Road Trip stay

We stayed a single night on our way to south dakota. I liked that they were pet friendly, and the cafe for breakfast was wonderful with great service to boot. The hotel was a bit dated and could have used some updates, but otherwise a wonderful stay.

This place should be torn down

The cold came right through the walls and floors Ceiling tile was water stained or missing. In the last two weeks we stayed at six motels and this was the worst one

Lots of Problems

Property recently changed ownership and is in desperate need of updating. I was there for a medical visit, and it worked out adequately in my case, but ....... Paving was bad and roof had leaks. Night desk staff was very poorly trained and unhelpful. Equipment and amenities were broken and out of service, including ice machine, exercise room, concierge cart, pool. Also room shower faucet seemed installed wrong, and pool towel sign had been altered to read "poo towel". But, desk manager and housekeeping staff and breakfast cooks almost salvaged visit. I will call ahead before next visit.
