In my youth I once stayed in a hotel on spring break that was overrun by chickens. That hotel looked and smelled better than this one. I felt more secure also,as the clucking chickens kept you alert. This place is a hovel. Stayed for a Phillies game as website said it was .9 miles from stadium. Funny. After walking there... More

I was planning on staying at the Ramada for its convenience to the airport, it's shuttle service and option for long term parking. It turned out to be a headache. Upon checking into the hotel, the night before my 3 am flight; I was assigned a room that was trashed and covered with dirty towels on the floor. I was... More

I didn't book my stay here. Had I looked at the reviews, I wouldn't have. My wife booked online for two rooms, since we were traveling with family. She had the printout that said two rooms, but they only had one listed for us when we checked in, about 8 pm. The front desk clerk was confused and overwhelmed. He... More

This is easily the worst hotel I've ever stayed at in my life. That being said for a park and fly it was very cheap and it 2 o'clock in the morning when I come in off of my last airplane I don't really care where I lay my head as long as I lay it somewhere. There was no... More
