We were looking for a quick place to stay at the last minute. We found a good deal online for the Ramada. If you are with your family and just using it as a place to stop over its good. The front desk folks were nice and accommodating too. The room was OK clean and simple. The grounds are neat. The best part was its proximity to the ocean. The complimentary breakfast was decent no frills but we didn't pay for a big breakfast either.

The hotel itself is pretty average, but well-located. Room was clean, as was the bathroom. The bed was average, but not horrible as far as comfort. Property exterior and parking area are clean and maintained.

The main compliment I can give to this property is the staff. They were able to accommodate us for an early check-in, and when our room key cards kept deactivating, they were able to fix the issue and give us new cards without delay. Check-in and check-out were both a breeze, and we experienced no major issue staying at this property.

Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed three nights during Easter/Spring Break in a 2-bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen suite. More than enough room for our family of four to spread out and still find some space to be alone when needed. Beds were extremely comfortable. Kitchen area only had 1 chair. We used the hot tub and pool each day/night and found them very well maintained. You can get towels for the pool from the front desk. Complimentary continental breakfast has ample variety: yogurt, instant oatmeal, make your own waffles, bagels, cereal, juice, coffee, milk, fruit. We also used the laundry facilities and everything was in working order. We had a slight plumbing problem in the bathroom and they were very attentive to see that it was resolved. The elevator does best when there are 3 or less people riding in it. You can get a dish pack from the front desk (plates, bowls, silverware, cutting board, knife, dish soap, sponge). I found it odd to have a full 4-burner stove and oven with no pots/pans. There is a microwave and full-size fridge with freezer. No shuttle to LEGOLAND but they're less than 2 miles away. Beach is about 3 blocks from the driveway and you'd have to cross two busy roads to get there --Ok for teenagers, might be better to drive the younger ones. Close to restaurants and supermarket, including Costco. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and we appreciated that they closed the pool at night otherwise you can hear everything going on down there. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: Room 209 was a great suite overlooking the pool. It might be noisy during the day if you wanted to...
