Gone Downhill

I used to love this Ramada Inn. Ialways enjoyed a nice quiet stay. This last time was a totally different experience. I changed rooms three times before I actually had a decent room. Even then, I had to put up with the people above me banging around all night and taking several minutes each time I wanted a shower to get the nob in the right location so that there would be hot water. The staff was very accomodating as they know me very well, but this was not enough to encourage me to return.

BJ's Roadhouse is very good with great service, especially at the bar. Several screens to watch your favorite sports.

Clean but with rustic repairs

This hotel had quick access to locations we wanted to visit. It was clean but in need of some repairs and the repairs that had been made such as moving of the bathroom door hinges was very rustic (not caulked or painted where removed). The toilet tissue holder was broken and some other minor items needed fixing. The staff was very accomodating. I have booked other similiar hotels but their repairs were "finished". The room served it's purpose for our trip.

Would not stay again

The hotel was going through an update, a pet peeve is when whi-fi does not work. It was fixed but not after I was going to check out. Parking is poor for of the units, just not user friendly.

A Little Disappointed

I stay at this hotel all the time and usually get a very friendly greeting. This time was no different. I was even offered my favorite room. Unfortunately, the room is in need of some upgrades. The television did not have good reception. The towel rack was rusted. The bathroom door had been repaired and instead of opening into the bathroom like it did before, it now opens out into the room and got in my way. The towels need to be thicker and more absorbent. The hair dryer also didn't work. I like this hotel and the staff but this time I have to say I was not impressed.
