Stayed here in mid August with family of 3. First impressions were good, but found a problem or two. The good: Convenient location, fresh, attractive lobby, friendly check-in, and unusually large rooms, especially for what could be considered a "budget motel". Fridge and micro in the rooms was very convenient. Good parking. The motel looks like a newer property inside and out. The complementary breakfast was what I consider a good value for the budget price of this lodging. Mostly breads/pastries, fresh fruit, waffles, yogurt, etc., hot & cold drinks/juice. Clean and attractive, spacious breakfast area.

The bad- the "unseen". Although the rooms and common areas appeared clean & fresh on first glance, we had to look under the beds for a missing item the day we checked out, and found the carpets were remarkably dirty under the beds, with lots of debris, wrappers, small trash, spilled crumbs, etc. Pretty bad. It looked like the areas under the easily movable beds on wheels had not been vacuumed/cleaned in weeks, or even months. This is a housekeeping issue that should not be tolerated by management, or the housekeeping supervisor. That said, I would NOT say I would never stay again, I will probably give this motel one more try next time I am in the area, it's only fair to give them the chance to correct this one problem.

We went for a couple of night on labor day week end, so all hotels in Monterrey were really overpriced at this time. Found a secret deal on Priceline, and it was a very good surprise for us. ($80/night).
Hotel is nice, not in the center of Monterrey, but only 15 minutes by car. Beach close by is very nice as well.
Room and Bathroom were huge, Has Dvd Player and Microwave and king bed. The only bad thing was some dirty-sticky spots on the carpet.
The hotel also offers free internet, breakfast (which is not bad!) and fitness room.
For us, it was almost perfect (except the spots on carpet)!
I really recommend staying there.

Although we have stayed at this Ramada before and have had no problems. This time we experienced less than enthusiastic staff, stained sheets for the pull out sofa bed and an inflated price.

Comparing to other experiences that I had in US so far, this hotel met all my expectations and was excelent. I stayed in a lot more expensive hotels where customer service was bad, so i beleive this hotel was excelent for me. I don`t understand the bad reviews. Was very quiet, no parties, no noise, I had an issue with dvd player and it was replaced promptly,so, good customer service, rooms were very clean and big size, and is located in a convenient area close to stores and not very far from Monterey.And I could check in early. I booked the room directly on the hotel web site I didn`t use any travel agency web sites. I will stay again there if I travel again in the area.
