Adequate for a single-night stay

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 12, 2015
The room was clean, but the bathroom was badly in need of remodeling. The grout around the tub was cracked and moldy the tub had a few stray hairs from previous occupants. It's rather on the shabby side you can tell it's an older hotel.

Terrible experience

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 29, 2015
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

Would not recommend Sun, May 24, 2015
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.

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

Would recommend Tue, Oct 7, 2014
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.

Dining

Wiskey Creek Resturant attached to Ramada Inn. Good food.

Fun for all

Would recommend Mon, Jul 28, 2014
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.

Entertainment hint

Putt Putt golf just a mile away.

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
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

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 10, 2014
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.
