Verified Reviews of Ramada Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very clean and has all of the amenities needed"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Front desk staff were most accommodating and friendly as well as the General Manager. We were unfamiliar with the San Diego area and were so happy to find a hotel that was not only comfortable but was so very clean! Thank you for the spotless rooms that had so many little thoughtful things that we need when away from home.

"Team Friendly Hotel With Easy Freeway Access."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We recently stayed at the Ramada Conference Center with a high school baseball team. Mary Holladay, the Director of Sales and Catering, was very well organized and communicated promptly whenever we had a question. The staff was friendly and accommodating from the front desk to the housekeeping and maintenance staff. We had the breakfast buffet included in our package and the food was good and varied a bit every day. The teens whined a little about breakfast ending at 8:30 am, but coaches felt that it got the team up earlier enough to force them to go to bed at a reasonable time the night before. Rooms were clean and relatively modern and the bathrooms were spacious and appeared to be recently remodeled. HVAC worked well and wasn't overly loud. Parking was plentiful and convenient to room locations. The close proximity to the freeways made for easy access, but we didn't notice the noise as we were on the back side of the hotel. Although there isn't much for restaurants within close walking distance, there were lots of food options within one three miles. Pool was large and the hot tub was popular with the players after a long day in the sun. The only minor negative was that the exercise center is very limited with only a couple of bikes and a treadmill. Adding a modest circuit training unit would improve the room considerably. Overall, this was a four out of five given the team friendly environment, price point, friendly staff and convenience. We would stay there again and would highly recommend it to other teams.

"Friendly, Comfortable and Perfect for Our Group."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Ramada Conference Center was perfect for our group. We brought 37 high school girls on a college tour and this perfectly suited our needs. The front desk staff was incredibly helpful over the phone before our trip and during our stay. Everything was organized and ready for us when we arrived. The property is well kept and clean. The huge pool area was perfect for a couple hours of relaxing after a long day of walking around college campuses and the breakfast was a great way to start the morning. Rooms were comfortable. Great stay. Great experience. I would definitely book here again.
