Ramada Limited Tell City
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Tell City
Reviewed 14 May 2008

Ok where to start? First off its in a nice location. Its up above Tell City near several fast food restaurants. The hill going up to it is a mite steep, but its got a fab view.
They have a onsite "pub" but I didn't go in there. Lots of people in there, lots of noise so people seemed to be having a good time.
The room was fairly clean, there were some minor issues but no biggie. They have a free breakfast, we only went down there once, and it was so disgusting - food presentation and cleanliness -- we couldn't bring ourselves to eat much and ended up going to McDonalds down the road.
The staff seemed to be doing everything but their job. No greeting when you came in, or left. When I asked if there were any good restaurants that wasn't "fast food" she rolled her eyes and said "just drive down the road, you'll find something." Another one was doing her nails when the wife stopped to ask for an extra towel and said "we don't give out extra towels." That was a shock to me, any hotel I have ever stayed at would give you an extra towel or washcloth. Not one of them were friendly except the check out girl.
All in all I would stay here again.

Reviewed 14 July 2006

We stayed at the Ramada Limited in Tell City for a few days in July. At first glance the hotel is very pretty, the breakfast area is on the small side, but seems ok. My first impression of the staff wasn't very good, the girl was talking on the phone, and it was obvious it was a personal call, she saw us waiting and said, "just a minute" -- we waited for 15 more minutes before she was through. Our room seemed ok at first but I found a pair of underwear under the vanity in the corner and the refridgerator smelled like fish. It was so overwhelming I hesitated to put our drinks in it. There was hair in the tub. When my husband called down to the desk the girl just laughed and said "Oh we have fisherman stay here alot, they probably put their fish in there" ???? Ok but what are we going to do about the smell? She said there was nothing she could do. Also was not concerned about the undies, I finally picked them up with a paper towel and threw them in the trash...yuck!
Next morning when I went down I asked a new clerk about the refridgerator (maybe could we get another one?) and she said the manager would be in soon and to talk to her. So we had breakfast while we waited. It was ok...the waffles were very good, other items were cereal, etc. The donuts were several days old, they were hard and had crumbs from other doughnuts stuck to them. Milk was funny tasting, someone else complained and the clerk kind of huffed around and then brought out some more. She said it must have gotten a "little too warm" yesterday. Spoiled my appetite.
Manager never came in, never saw him/her the whole time we stayed (3 days), finally gave up on the fridge and put ice in a cooler in our room for our drinks. When we checked out they asked how everything was, I mentioned the fridge again...different clerk called the manager and she was very upset and rude and said dont be looking for discounts --- that we should have done something about it our first night. We weren't looking for discounts!! I wasnt even going to mention it until they asked! And I tried to do something about it...by calling front desk and the next day as well.
I told the clerk this and she said "well the manager gets upset easily" and she took 10.00 off total cost of our room...which I thought was nice but the management wasn't professional at all. We probably won't stay here again, there is a new looking Holiday Inn across the road that I would prefer to stay at next year.

I am very sorry that you felt your experience at our hotel was unsatisfactory to you. Under these circumstances our staff is trained to accommodate the guests by moving them to another room or even upgrading. I have never been accused of being rude or unprofessional. My schedule consists of fifty to fifty-five hours a week. I am sorry I did not have the opportunity to handle this person to person. I assure you the situation would have been handled correctly.
