Verified Reviews of Ramada Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Friendly Manager. Rest of Hotel, Very Forgettable."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I was very disappointed as to what $75.00 buys you in Des Moines in regard to accommodations. Brought a youth team here and had a tight budget so choices were limited. It was okay at best, but will look elsewhere next time.
