Average hotel at a good price

Stayed at the hotel for 5 days. The hotel was undergoing some reservations which is probably not a bad idea as the hotel could use a little bit of a face lift. However, the hotel rooms are nice, clean and pretty large. A couple of minor issues is that the breakfast was the same exact thing every day. Also, the outdoor pool looked like it had not been cleaned as there was some stuff (leaves) on the top and bottom of the pool. However, in the end it was an average hotel at a very good price.

Great Location!

My boyfriend and I came to Lancaster to see my Cousins and the kids! It was a very short but very sweet stay! The Ramada is the perfect location! Very nice place! Room very nice and clean! Bed very comfortable! We didn't have to ask for anything for the room! Very nice indoor and outdoor pools! Weather wasn't that great so we used the indoor pool! The Hotel Staff very very friendly and accommodating! Looks like they are renovating parts of the Hotel! Once its all done, it will definitely be a big improvement! Bottom Line! We will definitely stay here again! Probably not until next year!

not good

Going by the ramada inn website which stated outdoor pool, tennis courts and basketball court we went with it. upon check in with my son and his basketball in hand the clerk said the hoop and tennis courts are in the back of the establishment.what he didnt say was the hoop was ripped of the backboard and lying in disrepair on ground and the tennis court was in shambles and the outdoor pool was green from an algae bloom!! YUCK>>> we went back and nicely complianed ,he said he wasnt sure if the maintance staff would be able to fix hoop.housekeeping forgot to clean our room, the "fitness center" had one bike from 1980 and a treadmill that was not in working order.the complmentry breakfast was a fly swatting adventure.The indoor pool was ok but the adjoining suana look like a storage locker of old chairs not in use but the door to it was open as if in use. with a lot of repair work it woukd be nice, golf course view in back and right across from Dutch wonderland.

Needs a Complete Renovation

I chose to book this hotel because of the Ramada brand. But it definitely does not live up to the brand's image. The lobby smells and the elevator is dilapidated and is very slow. The room is sparse and drapery that's falling off the rail. The bathroom shows sign of wear with cracks between tiles. Even with the low rate is was not worth the price.

Comfortable. Convenient. No wifi.

The Ramada is a fine deal. The price was very reasonable compared to other Lancaster venues. I easily made the commute back and forth to my meetings downtown and WOW heated tile bathroom floors! The hotel description said there was free wifi, but the reality was there was less than one bar of strength so I was never able to get online during my two-night stay. That's a game changer in today's world. If that's no issue for you, you'll have a satisfactory stay.

There is a California Tortilla very close. If you're looking for a healthy meal while traveling, you can grab a great salad very conveniently.

Sad Story - we were locked in by prepaynig so we stayed.

As soon as we arrived we said we were gladf we had not brought friends with us. We were embarrassed at the condition of the facility. It is an old run down 1970's building rather falling apoart. The continental breakfast was riduculous - week old dry har french toast day after day - the same toast as the day or week before.The facilities are BAD shape. I'm sure the staff does what they can with what they have. I don't know why this hotel is even open. Starting from the old building code entrance to the rusting and corroding balcony railings and the elevator which is so old it may still use "Old Ropes" for lifting. I cannot believe the Company managing the hotel would even bother - the occupancy rate was in the single digits. A few more unfortunate travelers at week ends. Of near 200 rooms the bottom floor is a wreck. The signs stayed "under construction" but it would take a million dollars to bring this facility to acceptable levels for actual use.

Good getaway

This hotel is right across from Dutch wonderland which was perfect and near restaurants. Great pool for the kids. The AC was not working and wifi did not work and another bad thing was that the rooms do not have a fridge. The staff was not a big help either.

I don't recomend this hotel at all

I arrived at 6 o'clock to the hotel and they weren't able to found my reservation so I had to wait 15 mints. Then my room wasnt clean and they did not know how long could that take. The elevator was awful. The bathtub was dirty and the room smelled of cigarette. The only thing I liked was the pool but I think I wasted my money on that hotel.
