        There was no one at the desk when I arrived, and I had to call out to get someone's attention. There is no elevator. Stairs to second floor had not been vacuumed recently. Carpet in room had burns in it. Mold in the bathroom.

      • Family with children

        The smell of the room was a horror. Bathroom was very dirty. Everything was over used. Time for a makeover.

      • Family with children

        Great pool area and slide for kids. Easy quick access highway and restaurants.

        Took four attempts to get clean room.

      • Older travelers

        The location was easy to find.

        The room was too cold and the live music didn't stop until 1:00 A.M. I didn't get much sleep because it was too noisy.

      • Older travelers

        This Ramada had been renovated by enclosing a large space with a roof so that our room looked into the space. It was very gloomy and depssing- needs some lighting, interior design, maybe some indoor gardens?

      • Older travelers

        The only thing we liked was the Dinner in the Grill, which was delicious, and our Waitress was Terrific....young and very pretty blond girl...her name is casie! She helped us choose what to eat, was right and very charming!!!!! The room and hotel was dirty, noisy and we'll never stay here again. Sincerely, Bonnie

        The Hotel was Dirty, Room was Dirty, smelly...(spray to cover up smells!)...very complicated to find parking near our room...complicated to find our room...since it was inside a maze? The pool was full of screaming kids...I Would never go in that the next morning! Hard to lock the door. The breakfast was lousy...breakfast room was dirty. No chair for the desk...(we found one outside!) No Light on the desk! Bathroom too small. I could go on, but I prefer to forget this experience!

      • Older travelers

        Room temperature did not go above 61 degrees and I booked a king bed and got two double beds. Room was terrible in appearance. When checking out only received 10% off our bill. Will never stay at a Ramada again and have informed family and friends to do the same.

      • Family with children

        Good location in hays, friendly staff

        I would not recomend this hotel to anyone. My two year old daughter and I, a 23 year old female were napping and two men came into our room with a key card. The deadbolt was not locked because it had been busted off the door who knows when. They apologised and left the room. When we went down they said they had no record of us ever being checked into the hotel yet they had charged me for two nights and we had already stayed one. The room they had us in was filthy, still had washcloths and soap in the shower from previous guests. Also it was incredibly loud because of a wedding going on down stairs, the dj was preparing for a wedding with blaring music untell 2 am that night, however we were unable to get a room away from the ballroom or on the first floor, and the hotel has no elevator. Very inconvienant when traveling alone with a baby. After the intrusion, however, we left the hotel and went to a diffrent hotel to stay the night somewhere safe and clean. They did refund the night we did not stay however, and the staff was as helpful as they could possibly be but I did notice while waiting in line for 20 min to check out that was not the only person there who had a complaint.

      • Family with children

        only the location close to the highway.

        The carpets are all stained, it had an odor. Breakfast had a poor selection. the trash cans were full, tables were dirty. It was all very uncomfortable.

      • Older travelers

        The Ramada Hays Convention Center is in a very run-down condition. Plumbing and heating/air conditioning are poor. While the rooms were relatively clean, the commons areas (hallways, etc.) were very dirty.

      • Older travelers

        Stayed in 2 different rooms heat was extremely slow to warm both rooms. 2nd room wasn't a clean smell. Otherwise enjoyable

      • Older travelers

        Stale, old facility, Air conditioning did not work.

      • Group of friends

        Not one thing. It was disgusting. The shower and bath was covered in mold, the bathroom faucets were not attached to the wall, housekeeping smoked in our nonsmoking room while we were at our meeting. The ceiling was wet and falling in. The carpet was stained in what looked like it could possibly be old vomit. There were beer caps left in our room from the last group. Disgusting is pretty much the only word to describe it.

        There was not one single redeeming factor. It was so gross- and to add to my previous comment, it did not feel safe. The lock on our door appeared to have been broken into on multiple occasions. The other people staying there had no qualms with hooting and hollering inappropriate comments to my collegue and myself, on top of the filth I mentioned earlierI

        I did not recieve a billing statement, I need one to give to my employer for reimbursement.

      • Couple

        This was the WORST hotel I've ever stayed out. After being in our room for 5 min I called the front desk to ask for a refund. The manager wouldn't talk to me and after quoting me a price I had to pay, when I went to pay it doubled and he still refused to talk to me. I'm so frustrated with the Ramada I will never NEVER stay at another one again! What was wrong w/the place: MOLD from the pool all over the walls, when we walked into our room I didn't even want to put my bag down. Blood on the floor, bed looked like someone had already been in it, the bathroom was DISGUSTING! The whole building inside looked like it has never been kept up or cleaned. Especially don't stay if you have kids!
