    Very good

    The buffet breakfast, coffee available though out the day and the complimentary usa today newspaper.

    Disappointed in the pool temperature. It is advertised on website as heated but was cold! Other guests concurred. Mentioned to the front desk twice, but nothing was done! The other annoying thing was the fact that the room electronic card keys either didn't work at all or you had to try the card in the slot up to 15 times before the door would recognize it, which wasted approximately 5 to 10 minutes trying to get in your room!

    The public beach is quite close. Their swimming pool and hot tube is good.

    Breakfast could be improved - more fresh fruits / vegetables, stronger coffee

    Freeway noise is very high. Breakfast is cereal waffles pastries, no protein. Air conditioning not very effective.

    Superb

    I love the full kitchen and the nice breakfast spread with fresh waffles!

    This trip we never seemed to get enough towels and washclothes were missing after each cleaning. We had to go ask for more before we could shower. The fold out sofa was so uncomfortable we wont count on using that again- the 2 double rooms were booked so we took a queen suite with fold out- awful though. And the queen was very uncomfortable, as were the pillows. The blanket wasnt the same either- cheap velour instead of the white waffle patterned like our last trip. Little things...I will syill stay there again but make more requests ahead of time.

    Convenient to Highway 5, close to family destinations. Price point was excellent.

    Unfortunately, by 9:30am, there was no hot water for showering.

    Close to Outlet Shopping and Legoland

    Room was cheaply finished with plastic tub and shower surround and plywood cupboard doors. There was nowhere to hang wet towels except directly above the toilet and no clothesline. The complimentary breakfast was terrible. We opted to eat out on our second day. Even the quiet rooms have the roaring traffic noise of the freeway.

    Fabulous

    I got upgraded to a nicer room immediately and at no charge because internet access was not functioning correctly in my original booked room.

    You can't see the beach from the rooms. The outside of the hotel is loud due to the freeway being on the same side of the street as the hotel, however, once in the room, the noise couldn't be heard. The ac blew air directly into the curtains hanging above them not allowing cool air to circulate in to room. I had to buy tape and tape down the curtains to prevent this.

    The building (appliances, furnishings, carpet, bedding, linen, even the phone) is old and dirty. The rooms lack any form of quietness. You can hear everyone outside, the highway traffic behind the building, people walking by the bedroom window pulling their luggage. The outdoor pool is not heated. I booked the room based on photos (which were probably taken the year it opened), and my trust in the "Ramada" name providing 4 star accommodations and service...never again.

    Superb

    The staff was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast was wonderful. The location was conveniently located close to legoland.

    The description stated that it was a short walk from the beach. It was really a short drive. The walk would have been too long for a family carrying beach items.

    Exceptional

    Rooms were clean and staff was helpful. Hotel was family friendly and a value for the price. Good selection for breakfast.

    Breakfast selection was good, however seating area was crowded. Towels were a little worn.
