I have never been to a hotel that charges by the hour for early checking in early. I arrived at the airport at a little after noon. Called the hotel to find out if I could check in early and was told there was a fee. How much? $20 per hour. Really? Okay, can I drop off my bags so I don't need to carry them around with me all day? Sure, just $10 per bag. Really? I would expect that at an EconoLodge or similar but not a Ramada. Okay fine, send the shuttle and I will pay the "bag hostage fee". They say okay, look for a shuttle from "ECONOLODGE!" Only 30 short minutes later the shuttle arrived. They dropped us off at the EconoLodge across the street and made us walk across to our hotel. I "pre-checked in" and booked a 4:00AM shuttle back to the airport (earliest shuttle) and left to explore downtown. I came back to the hotel about 11:00 pm and picked up my key to the room. The room smelled musty seemed mostly clean. Wife said she wanted to take a bath, but no plug for the tub. The TV said "channel not found" on every channel and the WIFI didn't work (Phone could "see" three different SSIDs with Ramada in the name, but two wouldn't connect and the other just hung). Not sure if it is just the room but don't book room 113.
In the morning the shuttle actually came across the street from the Econolodge to pick us up (we didn't have to go to that hotel to pick us up) but was 5 minutes late. Apparently the Econolodge customers had a higher priority.
If this was my first stay at a Ramada, this would have been my last.
On the pro side, the front desk personnel were very polite.
