Ramada Inn: "Not a good start!!!!" San Francisco Hotel Tip by bugalugs

San Francisco Hotels: 718 reviews and 613 photos

Our first time in the US and we had booked our first night only at the Ramada Inn, we had also instructed them that it could be approximately 9.00pm when we arrived due to our flight times.

We arrived at about 9.30pm only to find that they had let our room and then they said they didnt have any others free!!!!! To say the least we were angry and of course tired after travelling (on two flights) from England.

Other people were also in the reception trying to book a room!!! In the end the hotel reception said that they did have a room although it wasnt a 'very good' one. Nevertheless we were by then desperate and took it. They were'nt wrong when they said it wasnt 'very good'.

However tiredness got the better of us and we slept well, but then booked out the following morning.

Unique Qualities: There was a small swimming pool, laundry, pool table, cafe and a bar. However we did not use these facilities.

Berkeley University was not very far away.
