Verified Reviews of Ramada Hotel & Conference Center Lakeland

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"The Worst Experience"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I came back from the store only to find a maintenance worker was in my room. . his excuse was to check rooms for smoke.
(Group coordinator, booked 2 rooms), from US flag

"Not Provided with the Right Information"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Poor service, unfriendly front desk person, and was locked out of our room. I was told incorrect information about a hold on my credit card. I had no gas money because of the hold. Front desk people had a lack of communication between each other because I had to explain my issues to three different people. I was told a manager would call me and no one called back. I had to call them again and again. The room was also not clean and the mattress was very old and uncomfortable.

"An Okay Hotel for the Price"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
First of all, the people who arrived on Thursday found out the restaurant was closed. Also, upon check-in they were not informed of the free breakfast. They are 90 years old and had to go out for the second time. No one in the wedding party was allowed to check-in even 20 minutes early. The rooms had to be changed because of leaks in the first room. The worst part was that after the wedding at about 9:30, they all wanted to go to the bar in the hotel and it was closed with no explanation and no prior warning. There were about 25 people that wanted to go there. Because of this, they took a taxi downtown to have a couple of drinks. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone for an event. Everyone that came in my room said it smelled very musty. Even the person in charge of the breakfast room did not stay on top of things and supplies were usually low or gone.

Response from Management on 25-Aug-2014:
Dear Debra,Please accept my sincere apology regarding your stay at the Ramada. What you experienced is not the standard we strive to uphold. We have reviewed our procedures and made the appropriate changes to prevent this from ever occurring in the future. We also have a new restaurant in our hotel Winners Circle. Winners Circle will be open daily starting at 3 pm. Although your experience with us has not been a good one, we hope that you will offer us the opportunity to provide you with our hospitality on your next trip. Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience.
