“No complaints, but nothing special either”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

I've been in Olympia for a few days on business. The Ramada Inn has been comfortable -- nothing fancy about this place, but no major complaints either. Lots of options at breakfast -- more than offered at some of the pricier suite-style hotels -- but the bedsheets are scratchy and the internet connection is rather slow. The staff are friendly and happy to answer questions. If you are looking for an affordable, decent, no-frills place to stay, you might want to check out the Ramada.

Five of us stayed at this hotel in a family suite in late June 2011 for four nights. We were very comfortable and the suite was clean and well furnished. The complimentary breakfast was very satisfying and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were great and the front desk people were friendly and helpful. We'd be glad to stay here again.

We stayed here for a couple of nights when a friend of ours was getting married nearby. We trusted excellent reviews from TripAdvisor members, and we weren't disappointed.

Both the outside and inside of the building is clean and well maintained. It looks nice, like the place where you'd like to stay.

There is plenty of free parking available in their parking lot.

There are quite a few stores and restaurants nearby, including a pretty large K-Mart. It's just a couple of miles away from the state capitol building (BTW, I recommend doing a free tour of the state capitol, very nice).

The front desk was polite and helpful. Even though we got there at 8am, they already had our room ready. The room was clean and well maintained. There were a couple of small scratches here and there, but nothing that really stood out.

There was a small fridge in our room, and I am pretty sure there was a microwave as well. The beds were comfy enough for us, no issues. The housekeeping was fine.

The free continental breakfast was absolutely excellent. They had a variety of food that they constantly replenished, everything was fresh and tasted good. It was the standard breakfast stuff, eggs, bacon, yogurt, bagels, etc.

Overall I was very pleased with our stay and I would definitely stay here again if we needed to be in Olympia for some reason.

Room Tip: We always ask for a room by the elevator, and we were given one this time as well. Other than that I...

This hotel became a favorite while it was an Ameritel. New ownership branded it as a Ramada and continued the excellent amenities established. It is obviously Asian owned, run as the staff is now Asian and the posters of happy families in the elvevator depict happy, Asian families.

I stayed in the Ramada Olympia on a recent trip and was pleased to find a place that is well taken care of. A comfortable bed, good sized swimming pool and a good selection on the breakfast buffet. No complaints but one suggestion to reduce waste: reusable dishes. These would be very much appreciated and would better reflect the standard of this ramada.

We actually live in Olympia and decided to do something different for my husband and children. We loved it here for the one night of feeling we were away from home and enjoying the pool and hot tub. For the decent price of swimmimg pool, get-away feel, and that fantastic breakfast, it was worth every penny!

We are so happy you and your family experienced your weekend “getaway”, here at the Ramada Olympia, even though it wasn’t much further than your own backyard! We are pleased you enjoyed our pool and spa both which are open 24hrs. We also think our hot breakfast served from 6am to 10am daily is fantastic. Don’t forget to look for our Facebook discounts and we hope to see you and your family again soon!

We stayed here for just one night and really enjoyed our visit. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable with a nice bathroom. Easy walking distance to some nice restaurants. The breakfast was wonderful - everything was fresh, with plenty of variety. The entire breakfast area was nicely maintained by the attentive staff. This hotel is an excellent value; we would definitely stay here again.
