Verified Reviews of Ramada Tropics Resort & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Updates to property and General Maintenance Is Poor."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The facility is in desperate need of updates. In the seven years we have been coming, the bathrooms have been updated, but the aluminum door frames and trim is cheap. The ceilings and walls had water damage and discoloration. The pool is not maintained. The pool paint is very discolored. The steps up to the slides is rusted with several different colors of paint. The tube slides appear aged and unsafe simply because the paint is so faded. The netting for decor was ripped and shredding. The heavy rope around the poles has been partially pulled off and tape is still being used to repair the padding on the pirate ship. Water was leaking from the roof. One night the water was too cold for small children to play in. Disappointing.

"Cleanliness Was Disappointing."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Families from Illinois and Missouri have been meeting here for the past seven years. We always viewed the hotel as average since it hasn't been updated, but this year the cleanliness was the worst. There were cock roaches in our room. The toilet would not flush and after maintenance came, we had to clean the floor ourselves. We were there for three nights and had to dump our own trash and get clean towels, toilet paper and tissue. Housekeeping seemed perturbed when we asked them to vacuum the third day. Someone vomited in the hallways and they left it there with absorbent crystals for 16 hours. Everyday there was debris that we had to scoop out of the shallow pool or it was sitting along the edge. Besides cleanliness, the breakfast buffet has gone downhill considerably. There was so much more, but we won't be returning.

"Need Toddler Time."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Condition of water park is biggest concern, needs updated. Need toddler time.

"It was awful."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
There was mold all over the boat in the kids pool smelled like someone shit in it. Our rooms furnace was making a buzzing noise. Asked the front desk several times to have someone look at it. Finally someone came and looked at it and said they would be back and never showed up. So we had to sleep all night with a loud buzzing noise. Will not ever stay there again.

"Great Stay"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel was good. Prices are very reasonable, beds are comfy, staff friendly, it's clean and the best shower I have ever had! I would stay here again when in Des Moines. Thanks!
