The room, bed bathroom and shower were excellent, food was very good. the 2 scenic lifts which travel up the wide open atrium are spectacular. the taxi service back to the Airport as ordered by the Hotel was first class and very good value, overall a very pleasant Hotel.

If this hotel wasn’t in KSA, they’d be slapped with a major lawsuit or shut down. They are friendly enough and the rooms are nice enough, but they will willingly compromise your information without thinking anything of it. I took a room for myself there about 2 weeks ago and had no problems. Then, yesterday, I started getting harassing text messages and phone calls from an insane, psychotic woman who thought I was sleeping with her husband. It turns out she had contacted the hotel and they just handed over all my personal information to her, and she decided to unleash her anger on me.
The release of private information is completely unconscionable and in most places, illegal. Ramada Hotels should be ashamed of themselves and I will be sure to let them know that these are the kinds of practices that they support.
Do not stay here unless you’re willing to share your phone number, address, passport details, and any other confidential information, with the general public. They also don't bother to mention that your room will be RIGHT next to a mosque, so even though you have a bed, you can't expect to get any rest.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Great, clean and tidy. Good location, arround 5 mins to the sea, and 15 to Rashed mall
good service in-room dining I have eaten Shawarma and Biryani, they were delicious.
Only one thing was not perfect, the main restaurant is not clean enough, of course I'm talking about decoration not food.

Comparing it to the rest, it's the best there for the value of money. It's new and it looks clean and presentable. I always stay there when I go for my business meetings. Location wise is good and located in middle of al khobar so close to everything...

Neat,clean and well sized rooms. Decent location with food outlets within a 10 minute walk.
Breakfast is average, both selection and service can improve further. Overall a good option for biz travel as room pricing is good value compared to other nearby hotels
