i can't recall the last time we stayed at even the most mediocre motel and did not receive even a Continental breakfast. Who has time to go to a restaurant (even the one adjacent to a property) much less the price of two breakfasts here, which with tax and tip would run at least $30.00? That being said, the room...

This hotel has something for everyone. The waterpark is a kid's dream come true and for the adults there is a pool large enough to swim a few laps in a separate area. There's also a lounge with several slot machines if you wish to try your luck. The restaruant is a bit on the pricey side but the food...

It was a nice hotel right off of I90 but I did not hear any of the noise. The bed was comfortable and the room was large. The hotel was large and I never made it to the lobby when besides checking in and out. There was a restaurant which was okay. There was also a conference center. Parking was...

The RAMKOTA is easily accessed from I-90 and the room we stayed in was clean. Front desk personnel greeted us on entering and were helpful. Hotel employees spoke in the halls. This is a somewhat older facility that has been added onto over the years, giving it a 'maze-like' configuration when trying to get from one area to another. Long...

Stayed as part of a tour. Room was dated and had a funny smell. Breakfast was awful. Staff were friendly and bar had a good atmosphere. I wouldn't stay again if honest . The hotel needs renovated badly

An average hotel stop over, surrounded by car parks. We had a car park view, so nothing special there. Our room was of a satisfactory quality, but a long way from the front desk and the restaurant. We went to look at the menu in the evening, but was told to wait in the queue at the bar for 15...

This is an older BW that could probably use some updating. The rooms were clean and quiet. The first room we were given had obviously been smoked in and they tried to cover it up with air freshener. We had to wait until another room was cleaned before we could occupy it. Jane who works the front desk definitely needs...

My family stayed one night. The stay could have been a disaster, since there was a problem with the reservation. Thankfully customer service is not dead. A very nice woman named Cheri just took care of the problem. No fuss. Just handled with a smile. The room was clean and quiet. Every one we dealt with from the hotel was...

The rooms were okay but a little worn. You could tell it had been a while since any remodeling had taken place. The people at the front desk weren't particularly happy to see you and I interacted with them 4 times. Just make sure you request a room on the first floor unless you want to climb the stairs and...
