Everything was wonderful for the value
Noise from HWY.
Sofa bed was a plus
Staff not really interested. Their "discount" Legoland tickets were more than online prices. No shuttle to Legoland. They use same name as hotel in much better location "Carlsbad by the Sea" but just sneak Ramada at front and stick you miles away from anywhere you'd want to be.
Leaving, that was the only good thing about this hotel. Checking out.
When we first arrived, the rooms bedroom was flooded with water. When I told the front desk, they moved us rooms, but didn't seem too happy about having to do so. When we got into our second room, I stepped on a wooden splinter in our bathroom. We went to get a soda and the machine ate my five dollar bill. I told the front desk and they didn't seem concerned and told me to wait til the morning to take care of it. They didn't give me my full amount of money back and seemed very put out by having to do this. When my husband complained about this experience to the front desk, they proceeded to call the cops on us. I would never stay at a Ramada again after the way I was treated. Not only did we get searched by the police, but some shady characters left drug paraphanelia near our car. Don't ever stay at this hotel!
Aging facility. Allowing smoking at eating patio (in spite of my complaint to staff). Extra unexpected charges at check-out (without adequate or friendly explanation by staff). For these reasons alone I will not return.
Location was great. Pool was nice
Lack of coffee for coffee maker.
Exterior of building looks nice and it's located in a nice area.
The bed was really uncomfortable. you can get a room with a much better bed for less money out there, like Best Western motels for example. Quite disappointed, over priced. I don't plan on staying at another Ramada Inn.
It was clean and located close to the ocean!
The property is SO dated, it feels like a run down facility! In dire need of a face lift! The door barely closed, didn't feel all that safe.
While not the most lavish of Hotels, this Ramada offer comfortable rooms within WALKING DISTANCE from the beach and a decent pizza and seafood restaurant.
The Hotel does feel a bit "old". Still, everything was clean.
Staff was friendly. Close to our destination which was Legoland. Good area. Stores with in close driving distance.
Kids were skateboarding in facility which was very loud. Man was chain smoking right outside his door which was very close to ours. There was a cockroach in the kitchen area. Bed wasn't very comfortable. Stale smell.
I liked the location of the hotel. It is close to Lego land and the beach. The pool was clean.
I enjoyed everything about my stay. The staff was awesome! Jesus and angelica were both very helpful, the young lady wasnt feeling well that day and i remember thinking of how impressed i was with how she went the extra mile to accommodate me. Will visit again
Cant think of anything id change. It was a little difficult to figure out how to work the hot water
The room was nice. The pool area was very nice. The breakfast was good, my kids liked the fresh Belgian waffles. I would recommend this place.
The "kitchenette" was just a mini-refrigerator and microwave.
close to beaches
traffic noise from I-5
walk to the beach
Free breakfast, Free WIFI. Plenty of parking. Spacious rooms with kitchen and own bathrooms. Minutes away from beach.
Up stairs occupants were either running or jumping too much (i'm assuming children) thumps were loud through out the night and I wasn't able to sleep well.
Really liked the pool and hot tub area. Really liked the room. Small suite with a side bedroom.
Breakfast is just ok. Not hot. Also, open the pool earlier. 900 AM is too late.
It was very close to every location. Beach and Lego land for us.
Towels smelled like pee. Even the new ones we requested.
Beds were great.
WiFi was too weak to use.
Our vacation was cut short because we lost all our credit cards and identification in the water at the beach. We had to leave early I called about early check out and refunds there is a 24hr cancellation policy. At checkout the staff member only charged us for the day we stayed instead of the two reserved when my husband told him why we had to leave early! That was so considerate and we appreciated it so much!!
Breakfast is busy! Staff was slow to assist when requesting help. Shower and vent in restroom was noisey and the one bedroom had no AC or fan.
Rooms large enough for my family size.
Not organized, not clean bugs in room. Pool dirty
Close to legoland, suitable for big families
Poor wifi and beds were little bit uncomfortable.
