“Probably the Best Of a Lousy Chain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Anyone who travels extensively knows to steer clear of any Wyndham affiliated property as the chain has no standards whatsoever. I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised by this particular property.

I booked on Priceline and I cringed when a Ramada property came up as a 3 star hotel. Decided to stick it out and not fight Shatner over the rating.

Upon arrival the outside of the hotel is older but in decent shape. The lobby was a bit dated but clean.

The hallways and room itself weren't bad at all. The bed was comfortable and fitted with nice bedding. The big screen tv worked well as did the high speed internet. The carpet was older but wasn't sporting any obvious stains.

The bathroom continued the same trend. The bathroom, while a bit dated, was extremely clean with no nasty mold or mildew in the shower. Water pressure was very good and hot water plentiful.

So to sum it up, there are probably only five to ten Ramada properties in the entire chain that are worthy of a decent rating. This happens to be one of them.

if there was a breakfast included and both elevators were working, I would have given 5 stars. The room and beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was so clean, the tiles looked new. Our neighbors were getting rowdy around midnight. One call and someone came up immediately and the room was quiet for the night.
It is only 3 miles on 35W from campus, so the location is almost perfect.

BadgerAnn,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased to hear that your room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Our proximity to the campus is ideal, we are close enough to be convenient but not so close that you have to pay for parking, and our shuttle can take you if necessary! As for the elevators, they’ve had some ups and downs lately but the issue has been resolved. You are correct, breakfast is not included in our rate of the day, however we do have a great breakfast package available. We look forward to having you as our guest again here at Ramada Plaza Minneapolis and earning your five-star review.
Kindly,
Tammy

Although, I really wanted to stay downtown, the prices there were prohibitive, so I lucked into this hotel and got a great deal through Hotwire. It is only about 15 minutes from downtown, so it was an easy commute. The downside is that it is 2 miles from the nearest train station, so you definitely need a car. I had a room on the second floor way in the back and it was extremely quiet.

Dedrick49,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I’m glad that you were pleasantly surprised with our hotel and that the price and proximity to downtown worked well for you. Should you find yourself traveling without a car our complimentary shuttle services a five-mile radius of the hotel and can take you to the train station two miles away. We look forward to having you as our guest again here at Ramada Plaza Minneapolis.
Happy Travels,
Tammy

My son was playing in a tennis tournament at the U of MN tennis facility. I appreciated the close proximity of this hotel to the U of MN. It took less than 15 minutes to drive to the U, even during morning rush hour.

I wasn't expected too much from a Ramada hotel but this one exceeded my expectations. Overall very up to date, clean and comfortable hotel property with a nice restaurant on the property. Nice workout room for a hotel.
