Rooms are in good condition but the Wi-Fi is not at all functional. Breakfast very weak, nice pool, nice beach, very good staff especially housekeeping. Location and parking are very good, unable to get an extra blanket because the place was at capacity and no spare available

Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooms, private balcony, soft bed. Everything made our stay absolutely wonderful. We already have plans to come back to this hotel for a future visit! I will say their breakfast room was small. But on the plus side they did have free hot breakfast. Other Ramada ' s that we have stayed in did not... More

Upon getting to our room we discovered spiders everywhere in the 2nd floor hallway. Rooms were ok, nothing fancy. Our travel plans had to change so called the front desk before the 24 hour cancellation. I was told that we could check out early but to talk to the manager when we got back from the island. When we returned,... More

Positives-beachfront room was awesome, great water park across street, awesome well kept beach, nice view of boats, good breakfast. Negatives-room had a damp feel, pillow had huge lumps as if it had wet cotton balls in it, spiders everywhere on deck. If I go back to MC, I will probably try somewhere else but did have a decent stay.

The staff was very friendly, or room exceeded our expectations, We had a wonderful view of the Lake and the ferries departure and arrival. Someone took our patio chairs and table while we went out to the island, but that wasn't the hotels fault. It is a bit out dated, but I just think it made it all the cozier.... More
