While walking to my room at the Ramada I thought to myself, "Where the heck am I!?" The hotel is currently under construction, which is evident by the appearance of the hall ways. However, my room was very nice, and the staff there was amazing! We were there for a wedding and the staff went above and beyond to take...

Newly decorated room. Nice furniture and beds. Clean Pool was great with slides. A small slide for our little one and a bigger slide for her older brother. Restaurant and bar are under construction. They say they will be done by first of the year. Beautiful lobby.

The toilet in one room didn't flush we attempted several times to fix it ourselves which didn't work. We called it in at 1 pm and it still wasn't working by 9 pm. Called back to the front...

Weren't happy about not knowing they were under renovation. Make shift front desk made you worry what the rooms would be like. The rooms were nice, but the musty smell must have been from the renovation. It was awful and made you feel it was unhealthy! When calling the front desk, no one answered. Had to drive clear around to...

Thank you very much for your review of our Hotel. New furniture is custom made real furniture, not the particle board stuff that gets used elsewhere. We are going to be on top once renovation is completed and we hope that you will give us another chance.
