Hotel is a little questionable. Like the door to outside doesn't really shut so you don't really need a key to get inside. To me that's a security issue. Our room faced the pool which I would not recommend unless you plan to use the pool till 11:00 on Friday and Saturday night! Screaming both nights till 11:00. The room...

Enjoyed a beer at the bar the night we came in. The diner attached is very busy and delicious food. Enjoyed a Bloody Mary with breakfast. A Must have. Pool side room...

Our room was obviously not cleaned prior to arrival. Upon getting into bed we realized there were toe nails left in the sheets. Our ice bucket had melted ice in it when we checked in. The following morning after taking cold showers we were told it is an old hotel and hot water is not guaranteed. Not a good selling...

I've been staying here due to work intermittently since this was a Best Western I believe. The rooms are old but nicely renovated with flat panel tv,s with a great, although confusing, channel selection, comfortable professionally presented beds, fridge, coffee. As a corporate user there is no breakfast included but there is a diner in the building. From past experience,...

We stayed at the Ramada as we were in town for a family member's wedding. Check in was a breeze - Courtney at the front desk was amazing!! We weren't impressing with the room we were assigned and she upgraded us to a pool room with no issues! (that said - it was a little loud but everyone was out...

We had a bridal shower and birthday party here over the March 4 weekend and it was incredible! We used the meeting room and everything was set up for us and very reasonably priced. The rooms were very clean and the pool was nice. The staff very helpful and a great diner on the premises. I would recommend for anyone....

The room was tidy and comfortable. The hotel shows signs of wear, but I know they have been working on renovating the past few years. Internet quality was stellar. I do wish there had been a TV program listing the channels and what they were. Scrolling through channels was rather tedious.
