“Scumada Inn is more like it!!”
Reviewed 7 April 2005

The hotel was very roomy yes..however i think the house keepers have been on strike for many months. It was filthy, there was blood on my sheets, i was afraid to look behind the sofa..as to what i might find. The clock radio did not work. The back door would not unlock from the outside. There was a drunk mexican sleeping on the sofa in the lobby. The entire hotel smelled like a smoke filled room. The breakfast consisted of some boxed dried out doughnuts, cereal in which was spilled everywhere, and the juice and milk was in jugs which looked very questionable. Is that even sanitary?? Also the employees didnt even speak english....$85 and i couldve had a more peaceful sleep in my car.

Just returned from a weekend at the Ramada Inn @ Reading. Not my choice of Hotel, er excuse me MOTEL. But stayed there because our son's baseball team was playing a tournament in Reading. So we did not pick the hotel. Small rooms, small baths, hard mattresses. They located our group to rooms in the back of the hotel, at first I thought what is this! But then I realized there is a bar/restaraunt/nightclub in the front. Had we had rooms in that part of the hotel, the music and people would have been a nusiance! The fitness room was SAD. Just a bike and a treadmill.
But the pool is nice, but it rained on Saturday, and Sunday we had 2 games, so no time for swimming.
The bar/ restaurant was the best part, great food, great pina coladas, but no place for a youth baseball team. All in all if it was up to me I would not pick the ramada to stay in. There is a Comfort Inn and an Econo Lodge acros the street. Maybe there were better choices.

My family just stayed at this hotel for a three day weekend. This was the dirtiest most disqusting hotel I have ever stayed in. There were bugs in the room and mold growing on the ceiling. The floor was filthy and the blankets looked and smelled like they were not washed. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL--- it should be closed by the health department.

I recently went to Reading on a business trip and stayed at the Ramada for three nights. I had a very nice stay. The employees were extremely responsive and the restaurant/bar that is part of the hotel provided me with all of the evening entertainment that I needed. Definitely give this place a try if you are in the Reading area.
