Ramada Limited Medicine Hat2.0 out of 5.0

The beds were comfy, the rooms were clean and fairly large, the staff was friendly and the rates were reasonable. However, the pictures of the motel are photoshopped and taken at the very best. I have not stayed in a Ramada like this before. From what I saw online I also did not know it was a motel style. This motel isn’t in the best area. I was a little confused why there was a half used container of Palmolive dish soap by the sink. By the pool the plants are all dying which makes it look a little run down. From the sounds of it a lot of construction workers stay here which is fine, except their trucks are pretty loud at 5 in the morning.
The first thing I saw when we walked in the room, was a bulge on the bed. Thinking it was the bedding, I pulled it back to discover it was a huge bulge on the mattress itself. There were several other smaller bulge areas on both mattresses in the room. We asked for another non-smoking room but someone recently had been smoking (trying to hide it with the bathroom fan) and the bathroom reeked. I used a tissue & it was as if I rubbed smoke all over my face. We went back to ask for another room, but no other rooms were available. Given no other choice, we took the bulging beds over the smoky room. We have stayed at this location twice before and I've given very good reviews as both times, the experience was great. There was no missing the bulging beds or the smoky room. Either housekeeping doesn't tell management what they find, or management doesn't care. Either way, after this experience, we won't be staying here again.
The hotel looked reasonable from the photos, and I usually trust Ramada hotels to be more upscale than others. This one is no where near normal Ramada levels. It's a dated motel, they've tried to make modifications in the rooms, but they are small, stuffy and poorly finished. Chose the hotel because the gym looked great, and it's the worst run-down hotel gym I've ever experienced - somebody is skilled with Photoshop.
This hotel is just fine for the price. The room was clean and check in went great . Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great many items to choose . Sausage,eggs,pancakes,waffles ,muffins ,toast,fruit, etc. The location is great to get back on highway. Would stay again.
Room assigned wasn't cleaned yet and no power to the light switch, so was assigned to a different room. The chair at the desk / counter was broken (couldn't lean back on it). The toilet ran all night. Called the front desk who said they would send someone to fix it. They must have meant they would send someone the next day. Tried to fix it myself but couldn't. The bed didn't have a comforter on it, just something that looked like a table runner was draped over the end of the bed and had a cigarette burn in it. Turned off the light switch at the door and it cut the power to the desk and to my computer (didn't have the battery in it cause didn't think I would need to.) Checkout time is 11:00 and one would think that the free breakfast would be offered until 10:30, but no, it was all over with at 10:00. No signage anywhere that I saw anyway, to indicate this. Front desk thought I was in the first room assigned, so that hadn't been updated. I stayed at this Ramada Ltd. in 2015 and it was run very well then. Since then it has gone downhill and I would not stay here again!!!
Arrived at the Ramada very tired after 8 hours of driving, assigned a decent room, wanted to relax but TV had pixelated reception on ALL channels. Manager said that their cable TV provider - Shaw Cable - was conducting repairs, too bad. Next morning there were NO channels available, so the Manager phoned Shaw Cable and was told that repairs were continuing. Manager did not offfer us a refund or credit for the sub-standard overnight accommodation.
It's an older place but they've been doing a lot to fix it up. Small rooms but excellent beds, microwave, fridge, lots of TV channels etc...everything you need. Nice new lobby area with good breakfast. Excellent for the price. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Fantastic customer service from manager on down, very roomy accommodation, clean, comfortable beds. Will definitely stay here again when travelling through. Good breakfast including scrambled eggs, sausages, pancakes. Very impressed.
Firstly, let me tell you about the hotel. It was not impressive on the outside. Actually, it looked old. It was very nicely renovated inside. The queen size bed was very comfortable, the bathroom completely new, the rug was clean and new, the towels fresh, good quality, and fluffy. The manager at the reception desk was pleasant. The lobby was clean. The hotel has a pool but we didn't use it. Our room was quiet. I did find it strange we had to put down a $100. security deposit but it was credited back to our credit card. The hot breakfast was adequate. I especially enjoyed the hot cookies. But I rate the hotel excellent because of their honesty. I left my white gold, turquoise ring on the bathroom counter and never noticed I hadn't packed it away until I arrived home three days later. I phoned the hotel, they had it, and sent it back to me.
I was asked for my photo ID and when the desk clerk went to photocopy it, I said I wasn't comfortable with that. He said the police required them to do it so I allowed it. I phoned the police and they said they had no such requirement. In the morning I asked for the copy. The clerk said they needed to keep it. I insisted since I was checking out. She called the manager and was able to give it to me. I will not allow a copy to be made again.
