Outdated and Dirty
Posted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
I stayed at this Ramada during the July 2016 Ohio bar exam, which was in nearby Wilmington. The hotel was extremely outdated, dirty, and left me with a firm impression that I will never stay in another Ramada. The carpet in all of the hallways and rooms appeared to be coming up from where it would meet the walls, everything had 20 or 30 years of grime and dirt layered on it, and the rooms were quite small given how cheap real estate in Xenia must be. I did not expect much out of the continental breakfast, but this was by far the worst hotel breakfast I have experienced with extremely limited options (yogurt, toast, muffins, juice, coffee, milk, and eggs) that were the same each of the three days that I was there. The internet provided free via WiFi was near dial-up speed and when I asked the front desk for an ethernet cord, they gladly provided one; however, I found that there are no ethernet plugs in the rooms. Seriously? How do you expect people who are travelling to get work done (or in my case, upload my bar exam answers)? The only good things I can say for the hotel are that it had plentiful free parking, there are several restaurants nearby, and that the air conditioning kept my room as cool as I needed. My advice would be to stay somewhere else if you have the option. Ramada should knock this place down with a wrecking ball.
