I booked this hotel online the night before we arrived because it had excellent reviews and was priced very reasonably. The room was clean and contained a king size bed and a sleeper sofa, flat screen TV, and large bathroom. The odd thing about this room was that the bathroom sink/vanity which should have been in the bathroom, was actually in the area with the sofa and bed. The only other time we’ve seen a layout like this was up in Fundy Bay, Canada where the bathtub was actually in the living area. We’re adaptable, so it was fine. WiFi was fast and free, and a very meager breakfast was included in the room rate. This is an older Ramada and needs improvement in some areas. Pillows were plentiful but it was like sleeping on bags of cotton balls. Bedding looked grey and had an odd smell. Also, there was no lid on the toilet which made flushing somewhat disgusting.
If you’re driving the Pacific Coast Highway and looking for a clean and inexpensive place to spend the night, you can try the Ramada Inn Marina. But I don’t think it deserves the “excellent” reviews it has received.
