Full disclosure, I hate Ramada. I think they are way too expensive for what you get. I don't mind staying somewhere shabby, but to pay a premium for shabbiness rubs me the wrong way. So while the stay was actually pretty good, I'm still irked it cost as much as it did.
Anyway, the location isn't the greatest, kind of a sketchy area but we didn't have any problems. The hotel has a security guard on duty which is both comforting and unsettling. The exterior looks like it was built in the 60's but to give credit where credit is due, the interior has been renovated and it looks quite nice.
Our room was decent with surprisingly comfortable beds. The bathroom was small but really, how much space do you need? Like all Ramada's, there was obvious wear and tear and some cheapness to the materials etc., but really, it was quite nice overall. I'm also not a super huge fan of their climate control system (window mounted) but it worked pretty good.
This hotel allows pets and the staff are very accommodating. If your dog is barking, they'll phone you which is super appreciated. The free snack station on Christmas day was a nice touch as well.
This is a pretty standard hotel and I actually wouldn't mind staying here again if only they would price it for the downmarket brand that it is. That might sound harsh, but when I can pay the same price of the Holiday Inn Express up the road, why would I come back?
