“Broken shower handle/ bugs in bathroom”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

The room we stayed had a broken shower handle which I believe was the entryway for the bugs. I asked for it to be fixed but they never came. There are only safety bars in the showers in handicap rooms which onlt sleep 2!? Not worth the discounted rate of $$160. SIDENOTE: The Oxnard Ramada has a consistant overbooking problem with no remorse on their part. The 3 Ramada Inns we stayed in are horrible and overpriced for what they have to offer. Wyndham Group takes no responsibility.

We love this hotel. The front desk staff is consistently superb. They make everything so easy and really try hard to provide really great customer service. We needed to arrange for a second stay in Carlsbad during the same trip, and easily chose the Ramada Carlsbad again. I tried to submit a review giving a compliment to the night-shift front desk person (Patrick) but for some reason it hasn't been put through. But, he is usually the one that greets our family as we usually arrive late for check in because we travel to CA from a long distance. He is always great. We will return to this hotel. They have tried to upgrade some of the rooms with flat screen TVs and newer pull out couches in the living room area. It is also so centrally located to everything (zoo, downtown San Diego, Legoland, Sea World). I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but I think this hotel really is worth the effort. Thank you for all the great stays we've had.

If you're looking for a lower priced hotel and to be close to the beach or Legoland, this may be your best bet. An older facility that shows its age, the rooms are, nonetheless, clean. And, the linens are the same or better quality than the place across the street. Staff is professional, but not particularly friendly. The breakfast area is way too small for the number of guests that the hotel can house. When I stayed, it was overrun with lots of small children naturally excited about their day's activities. One attendant could not keep up with the mess. Also, the breakfast offerings are quite limited: breads, yogurt, cereals, waffles. No eggs. No fruit. No pastries. But if you're looking for an economical, family-welcoming place that is close to the ocean, try it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from I-5 as is available. It's noisy 24-7.
