Recent guest reviews

Horrible!! Not good at all! Not nice! Not clean! Price too high for bad smelly place. The hotel is not worth $50 a night, let alone $94. Did not enjoy it at all. Did not want to sleep in covers. Had bugs. Had stains on covers and on walls.

Room was dirty and smelled bad. We found cereal and pills under the bed. Front desk rude and unhelpful. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at.

My friends and I took a road trip to go see a concert at the Fillmore and this hotel was super close (7ish minute walk). If you need a place to crash for a night or two, and get a quick breakfast, this is the place you want. Its a bit shabby looking, but the staff was incredibly helpful and nice. The rooms were sparse but not unclean (maybe bring an extra blanket if you don't like thin sheets/blankets), and the proximity of the theaters/bars/shops we wanted to visit was amazing, we didn't even have to drive, we walked everywhere. This hotel is perfect for people on a budget who just want to take a quick road trip and need a place to sleep. If you are looking for a more "vacation" style hotel, and the perks and look are important to you, you might want to pass on this place.

Located on Main Street that leads to all downtown locations. Easy to find. Only 20min from the airport. Room was very clean and comfortable.

This hotel was dirty and run-down. There was a leaking shower causing standing water on the floor. Black mold in the bathroom tile and mildew in the air. The floor of the lobby was painted stone with much of the paint worn off. There was debris on the carpet in another area. One of the two elevators was out of order. We couldn't stay because of allergies; I hope you won't either. I also hope Orbitz drops it from their offerings.

They do not deserve any stars oh wait only 1 star because of a few employees and the location This hotel is the absolutely the worst ever! They put my husband and I in a handicap room and the water from the shower was all over the floor that the next day therr was still water an I injured myself. Did the hotel accommodate? Barely, we switched rooms but that is all. Breakfast was a joke! They lied about that,the pool was closed! The place is run down and extremely hot! I'd never ever recommend this place to anyone! We scheduled a shuttle ride at 12 and pickup at 2...No shuttle at 2 so we waited and waited and waited and I just had surgery 2 days ago so I'm in pain waiting on them..The location is amazing and the restaurant was great! NEVER EVER COMING BACK TO THIS RAMADA! If I could get my funds back I would! JUST TERRIBLE! They need to be shut down and remodeled and new management! At the end management reimbursed me for 2 nights.

Hotel needs an interior upgrade and surrounding neighborhood is a little rough but overall the hotel is pretty great and staff was friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was empty of water and one gym machine was out of order.

RUDE STAFF AT FRONT DESK AND HOTEL RETERAUNT. WAITER ARGUED OVER WHAT WAS WRONG WITH MY DINNER. FRONT DESK ATTENDANTS WERE SHORT STAFFED AND ACTED LIKE THEY HATED THEOR JOB. CARPETS IN HALLWAYS WERE DIRTY AND DINGY. MUSTY SMELL THROUGHOUT HOTEL.

my kid's favorite hotel! easy walk to everything we want

The main floor was being "renovated" the restaurant was closed. We were not made of any renovations before hand. The signs posted that the renovations would be completed by early 2017, however, we stayed in mid 2017 and renovations were obviously not complete. I called when we arrived at the airport and asked for an early check in. We were told we could check in at 2:00, we arrived at 2:00 and was told our room was not ready, we waited another 45 minutes before we were given a room. Our room was filthy; there was boogers on the bathroom counter top, a huge blood stain down the inside of the shower curtain and the room smelled like urine and rotten feet. The lamp was broken (with exposed wireing) the shower barely worked, the elevator was brojen, the door didn't shut unless you slammed it, the bathroom faucet also broken and our room phone did not work. The paint is peeling off the walls and you can see mold and mildew growing all over the bathroom. We called numerous times from our personal cell phones for clean towels and were told that since we has a do not disturb sign on we couldn't get them after our third call. We talked to them in person when we left for the evening and were told they would put towels in our room, however this did not happen. Finally at 12 am after we returned from our event I walked to the desk to get my towels which the security guard gave me since the Manager was outside smoking. The staff was rude and did not communicate.

good location close to downtown and other sites. friendly staff

Really kind of a dive. We stayed here because we had 3-day tickets to Comic Con and everything nearby was either stupid expensive or all booked up. I have to say the staff is awesome. Very friendly. Even the groundskeeper went above and beyond by finding me some sunblock when I forgot mine. The courtyard area is charming. Pool is small, but still nice. Our room was clean enough....so no complaint there. There's a shuttle that runs on the hour. But pick up from where they dropped you... you'll be waiting a lot longer than an hour. Take a Lyft instead. Sketchy neighborhood and the whole place needs upgraded. It's run-down and dated. No refrigerator in the room. Hard to keep a constant temperature in the shower. Freeze or torch are the options. The vent fan would periodically stick and squeal. The curtains were almost humorous. They looked homemade and were in need of repair. Very few tv channels and their internet is spotty. My son in law had a separate room and he said there was tape on the ceiling above the bed...looked like someone had a camera mounted there at some point. Gross. Beds are ok. Mattresses are soft. Turtle-slow elevator that smells weird. No fire-safety sprinkler system in the rooms. Breakfast was the same every day. Hard boiled eggs, diy waffles, toastable bread selection, mini donuts, Frosted Flakes, runny oatmeal, unripened bananas, apples. I have been at worse places, but there are much better hotels out there. Go find one if you can.

Overall, it wasn't terrible, but it was far from great. At least it had some form of breakfast, unlike the one on Zuni St. but it was very limited. It was not nearly as nice as the one in Northglenn off of 120th Avenue where I prefer to stay- it was booked out. The bathrooms are very small and the tv is hard to use. My experience-"average".

Old hotel but very nice stuff. The shuttle driver took us to the restaurant. We walked around near the hotel and find a nice Irish restaurant. We enjoyed stay.

Staff was friendly enough. But the hotel is outdated and noisy.

The staff were awesome. Very convenient to everything.

Free breakfast was a bonus. I liked being on the first floor

The hotel hasn't been remodeled in decades. The walls are half-painted. The showers are moldy - the water constantly goes between scalding and freezing cold. The rooms are dirty, the area is terrible (although voodoo donuts is only a block away). It's pretty seedy. The safe in the bedroom was useless - the safes require keys, and there wasn't a maintenance person around to provide me with a key to mine, and the front desk doesn't have a safe available for your use. I'm not picky about hotels, but this place is probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed at, period.

Way over priced, trashy, loud etc. the hotel looked run down and it was very loud

My hubby and I booked this hotel for a weekend away without kids. The area is in downtown, which is nice, but it is on a very weird (for lack of a better term) street. It seemed safe but there are a lot of bars and people wandering the streets at all hours of the night. We would definitely never take our kids here. The hotel is old and in desperate need of a face lift. Upon arrival, we were told that "they were busy and gave away all of the king bed rooms", even though we specifics booked a king bed room. We were given a double bed room, which, of course, being on a much needed trip alone together, we were NOT happy about. Staff said they would switch us rooms the next day and never did. Room was good sized but old and not cleaned the best. The shower was either scalding hot or ice cold. Every day the cleaning service gave us only conditioner. After calling down twice for shampoo and being told they would bring some up and never did, we finally went to the front desk. The front desk said, "oh yea, they've been giving only conditioner because they're too god d*#n lazy to get it out of the closet". Obviously extremely unprofessional. Although it was cheap and got the job done, we would never dream of staying here again and would definitely it recommend it to anyone.
