    This was the worst Hotel we ever stayed in. We were extremely disgusted with the whole hotel. One of our towels had holes in it. We are not sure that the sheets had been changed and the pillows were extremely old and awful. We have booked many hotels with you but we have never experienced such a terrible hotel before and will never stay in a Ramada again

    The lobby breakfast bar was tiny and had no seating. The limited food was ok, but not worth the stay. Room was very small and crowded; tv needed 2 remotes to work. Bath towels were dingy and gray. Not even sure if they were clean. I thought the Ramada name would mean something, but in this case it was meaningless.

    Nothing at all.

    It does not have place to sit while having breakfast. The house keeper was in bad mood. The white towels are gray. The heater was very old and noisy. The internet connection was unstable and slow. The parking lot does not have spots for all customers. We had to use our car during the day and when we came back, our spot was occupied by another car. Without place to parking we had to go to a public parking.

    The location was good and the price was reasonable.

    It was very noisy with traffic and other guests. Smoking occurred outside the rooms which led to the smell seeping inside. Parking was on first come first served basis which want clear on the website. There were very few spaces!

    Good

    Location is excellant and the new large televisions were a good addition.

    There is very limited parking. The exterior needs updating. Breakfast has very limited choices. Towels are old and small. Bed is very hard and not comfortable. Pillows hard and no choice of pillows.

    I stayed 3 nights at the Ramada San Francisco, each night there was much noise , banging of doors and talking in the courtyard. I called the office and asked if they were running a whore house. The clerk responded with I will be there in 2 minutes. He took care of the problem, it was much quieter after that. The staff was pleasant, but in my opinion they do not take care of business. The rooms were not totally cleaned and restocked. The one thing nice is that the rooms are away from the street. This could be a very nice facility with a little care. I will never stay there again.

    I pulled the manager aside and asked her to come to the room. I did not insult or embarrass her in front of anyone else. I just wanted her to point out some things to her. After I complained , she graciously moved us into a larger upgraded suite. She did say that she would do a deep cleaning of the room.

    When we arrived guests were in the lobby complaining about a dirty room that they just checked into. Our room was pretty dirty as well. Sheets had 3-4 holes (like from being worn out). There were two top sheets used instead of a bottom and top. The blanket was ripped. Although, the pillows had what appeared to be clean pillow cases on them, when I pulled back the pillow case the pillow itself was pretty soiled/old. Yuck. There was a large spill mark/spot on the wall where someone had spilled a drink. When I pulled the night stand forward where the spill mark appeared to run down the wall the baseboards were covered in old thick dust. It was a very disappointing experience. I am glad that I did not book two nights.

    Very good

    Location is good. The front desk staff was very helpful (accept one). Room was comfortable and clean!

    There are no elevators was the most inconvenient thing.

    Parking is only on a first come first serve basis.Was not aware of this from the online advertisement.We spent a stressful 45 minutes trying to find parking after checking in and were exhausted.Second the cleanliness was not good. One of the hand towels hanging on the rakc had a stain,smelled,and was damp.It made me concerned the rest of the room was not clean.Lastly,if you don't mind hearing everything through the window including footsteps,wind,cars driving bye,and doors from other rooms slamming shut then you would sleep well.

    Very good

    Good location, friendly staff & clean

    Breakfast could have offered more options, the rooms are set up like a motel but they are all facing each other down a hallway so in the mornings when people leave, you wake up to slamming doors.
