“Pretty Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2004

After reading some reviews on this site, I reserved a room at this hotel. This is the first review I have written, but I wish I had read something like this before I booked my trip.

On the plus side, the staff was nice and the price is right. But....

First, if there is such a thing as a bad part of Marina Del Rey, this is it. It is just next to a used car dealership. Second, to call this a hotel is a misnomer; it is clearly has a motel-type feel and quality. To wit, the office doors are locked at night and you must ring a bell and talk through bullet proof glass to check in past 8pm. In addition, the room had a visibily stained couch and the blanket had numerous moth holes. The bathroom grout was stained with mold residue. And good luck finding parking. My bathtub at home is almost as big as their "pool"

AAA should be ashamed of themselves to give this hotel an AAA rating. For another $20 a night, you could upgrade to a decent hotel closer to the beach.

This hotel is located in one of the few good parts of Los Angeles, and it's cheaper than to stay in Santa Monica, that's why we chosed it. We stayed there for 2 nights in April of 2004. If you arrive late and you have a big car to park, it won't happen there. The room was clean, but a B.O. odour was floating around for all our stay. Luckily, we could open a window to air the room out. We paid 75$us a night and I truly think we overpaid. On the Ramada website, they feature a hot tub... I never seen it work in two days... It's not a bad hotel, but I won't recommend it to you.

Nice room with 2 queen beds. Very clean and staff was nice. However, did not get a recommendation for a restaurant when we asked. We didn't pursue it, but ended up driving for 45 minutes before we found a great restaurant less than a mile away. Live and learn. Only other down side was the outside hot tub closed at 6:00 p.m. What is that about?

Stayed at the Ramada Limited 4 nights in late May, 2003. Good value for the price. The room was larger than I expected and was attractively decorated. The mini-fridge, coffee maker, and free breakfast were nice pluses. Most importntly the room was very clean. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Free parking too. My room was quiet, but the motel has some rooms that face onto the street and may be subject to street noise.
