Was the last room downtown close to the Convention

Pros: Locationclose to the Convention Center
Cons: A little better cleaning Do not open the bathroom window.
Location: Numewrous things. I was there for work and a Conference Exhibition show.
I would recommend this room if nothing else existed! I was in town Wednesday June 22 for a conference show, very large, so rooms were a premium. This was the last room within walking distance. I reserved a king and got the king suite with king and double bed and roll away, separate living area and kitchen area. The room was fair, a no thrills room that needed updating and some gentle care to the carpets. The chairs and sofa were very 90s feel. The bathroom was updated with a whirlpool tub. The room overlooked a small pool and was at the top of the outside stairs for the second floor, so it was a little noisy at times. My room was ready when I arrived at noon and I was able to place my bags there. I latter found some of the windows were open and the one to the bathroom could have been used by someone to enter the room (BEWARE!). The breakfast was truly only a continental style, typical juices and coffee, packaged pastries, cereal, toast bagels and hard cooked eggs. It was so-so. I was able to stay in the room an extra hour after checkout so I could attend the exhibition and conferences before leaving on the next leg of my trip.

I've stayed here numerous times for business. There are tons of great places to eat and drink within a short walking distance. I've always felt safe here as a single, female business traveler. The hotel is budget but very clean & comfortable.

Not a comfortable experience

We stopped over for a night's rest prior to continuing our journey. AT around 2:00AM there was a huge argument in one of the neighboring rooms and we were woken up and couldn't go back to sleep again.

Cheap and central

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Free breakfast
A good place to sleep and sleep only. I had repeated issues with the key card magnetic strip. The breakfast was basically a room of packaged food. One of my nights of sleep was interrupted by someone knocking and trying to open my door in the middle of the night. But overall inexpensive and right downtown.

This hotel was in a great location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We were able to enjoy some of downtown without actually being downtown. Nearby restaurants and bars. Everything was clean. Breakfast was great. I would recomend a stay here.

walking distance to the conference site

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, yucky
i'm glad i brought flip-flops with me, so i wouldn't have to walk barefoot in the room. the walls are very thin, so i couldn't sleep bc of the noise from other guests. there are no bedbugs tho, at least when i was there. the towels were very clean, the shower didn't have any shelves to put my shampoo or cleanser on. overall, i'd say this place was gross, but adequate to my needs, which were to have a place to park my car for a few days, and not have to drive to the conference nearby, nor to pay hundreds each night to stay in a nicer place. can't recommend it too much. i survived, but didn't get much sleep.

Great place to stay at

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Overall very friendly and willing to help you feel at home. The complementary continental breakfast was very simple and gave many choices. Television channels were the only down size to this place

Choose Another Hotel

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
I don't believe this hotel knows what maintenance is. I travel a lot for work and Ramada is usually ok, not this one.

heater not working well

I recommended my friend to stay over Ramada as it is really near to downtown. He has really bad feedback, especially the heater in the room. The furnishing is quite old. I would really hope Ramada can improve the ventilator of the room. This feedback makes me scared to consider Ramada anywhere in US.
