Last Minute Hotel Goodies

If you forget something, don’t worry. Do what I did. Drop by the Snack Bar located next to the reception desk and pick up what you need. I noticed it was open 24 hours a day and sold a variety of items including juices, soft drinks, yogurt, chips, candy, and assorted personal care items. I loaded up and headed back to my room.

Comfy Quarters 

My room had all the comforts of home –  comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, warm comforter, and plush towels. Even the hand cream was worth writing home about! The best feature is how quiet the room was – something I can honestly say is not a feature in most hotels.

The Ramada has certainly grown! Today there is a hot tub, indoor swimming pool, sauna, and a water-slide. In addition, guests will find spacious continental breakfast room, a meeting room, a mobile office, a fitness room, and a comfortable lounge area in the lobby.

We enjoyed our kitchenette, which was ideal for keeping snacks and beverages on hand. It was also very handy for the doggy bag from dinner at Nicola Sushi, which is just a short walk from the hotel.

 

Views–Inside and Out

While enjoying the swimming in the spacious pool area, one can enjoy the view outside and in. The mountain tops are visible through the large windows. The murals the decorate the walls and ceiling are a recurring theme throughout the hotel. They add a personal touch that is a pleasure to view. The fully equipped fitness room also affords a view of the mountains in the distance beyond the activity of the city.

Our room was a few steps away from a viewing area that tantalizes the outdoor adventurer! The mountain vista promises all kinds of activity!
