                  Not Ramada expectationsThis Ramada is an older building. Hallways are dimly lit. The sink is divided from the bathroom but there are no towel racks by the sink. Several things we would expect in a clean bathroom weren't done; however, it was not obviously dirty. The room seemed not to have been used recently.

                    Karina was great at front desk needs a raise!Very clean and updated facility. Karina at the front desk went above and beyond. Only suggestion is having more gluten free and dairy free breakfast options for the breakfast those were very limited but it’s a great hot meal.

                      ReviewOverall, very good stay; however could not get the temperature in the room above 68 degrees. Change temperature on thermostat to our comfort level but always reverted back to the 68 degrees. Would still recommend.
