After seeing the most recent reviewer say the hotel was horrible, we didn't know what to expect but had no choice but to stay at the Ramada on a busy summer weekend, when we hadn't planned ahead and had our dog with us. The Ramada was the only hotel that had an open room --- and that made us wonder all the more! But we were quite pleased with our experience there. The room was nicely furnished (although the carpeting was a bit odd, beige with colored stripes running through it to form irregular squares), clean as a whistle, and reasonably spacious. The bed was firm but not too hard. The bathroom was plain, with that plastic faux marble for a countertop. Good towels, a shower curtain hung on a curved rod to make room in the tub for the plus-sized, with a strip of clear plastic at eye level for the claustrophobic. The usual heater/AC unit on the outside wall. Windows run the length of the outside wall and can actually be opened. The TV was your average set, worked well, with a functioning remote. There was a recliner, small clean refrigerator and a valuables safe. Decent lighting.
I'd only ding them on a couple of things: there were only two pillows, and they were both very hard. One was thinner than the other so at least you could choose how thick your hard pillow would be. Also, the in-room coffee was pretty bad, and I'm not that critical about coffee, so if you care about your coffee you'll probably hate this stuff. And they had forgotten to stock the creamer, sugar, etc. for the coffee. Fortunately for me, I drink it black.
If you bring a pet, they charge an extra $*.
