Considering the short notice that I gave my girlfriend prior to our trip to the Miami area this hotel wasn't a terrible stay. On the plus side, they offered both smoking and non-smoking rooms (my gf and I are smokers so bonus there.) The bed was reasonably comfy and the room wasn't terribly cold.

On the bad side, the parking was a joke. They offer a garage but I drive a Chevy Tahoe so it was almost impossible to park without dinging up my truck. All in all though compared to the other places we saw in this area, this hotel met our needs without making us feel like we were in danger or a shady part of town.

It's a bit difficult to find depending on how you come into town but once you find it and see the area around it, you won't have to many complaints about the money you've spent. Not to mention Miami is but a short drive down I-95 and I doubt finding a hotel down there at the rate we had would be quite hard to do.

This place has an interesting theme. It reminds me of Las Vegas meets a really big trailer park in Arizona with plastic statues, big plants, plastic swimming pool, etc. Just a mix of inconsistent décor. The price is very inexpensive, and with that you get tons of ghetto. Mom's yelling from the third story balcony to the swimming pool. Arguing and screaming at 6am in the morning about the free breakfast, etc. The maintenance people use the only elevator. I had to wait twice one weekend for maintenance. They actually held the elevator on the 3rd floor talking to another employee standing next to the door. I had to use the staircase. A bottle of Heineken, $5.00 a bottle, a small bag of chips: $5.00 each. I did give it 3 stars because the beds and pillows were heaven. The breakfast bar was decent, but wake up early so you don't have to wait on the heroin addicts and hookers. While I was walking down the stairs to Hollywood Blvd. for a moment there I thought I was in Tijuana or Manila. You have to experience it for yourself. The place grows on you after a while and the cleaning lady there was nice, and some of the front desk people. If you can save an extra weeks pay to go to a better place, you might want to do that.

I stayed there 2 times over a week. Each room was clean, and the beds were fine too. I thought it was quiet. Reception desk was nice to us too. Really tight turns in that parking garage. Continental breakfast was fine.

All I can say is wow. If you make it through the stinky elevator stinky hallway pissed covered bathroom floors moldy vents in bathtub. Then this place is for you.

This place would easily be 3 stars if it weren't for the obscenely poor internet quality.  I travel 3 weeks every month for work and stay in a lot of hotels, so I can safely say that you'd be hard pressed to find a hotel with worse internet than this.  Aside from the internet everything else is pretty standard for this price range.

I booked this place via Priceline, and was unimpressed to say the least (being that all the reviews I read blew this place out of the H20)

Staff:
Can we slow our roll with the attitudes por favor?  How bout we make our guest feel welcome instead of making them look immediately for another place to stay once they set foor in their room

Room:
We arrived to our room and the door was already cracked open.  Like someone had been squatting there and was expected to return.  It was stale and outdated, but it had enough room to move around and a safe.  The wifi was relatively slow but it was present.

Location:
Not too shabby. In fact if you go down the stairs, you are on Hollywood blvd, and that's where the clubs and restaurant are poppin off.  Plus there apparently a beach within walking distance, but I was also tol otherwise...  

Parking:  
Unless you drove a Smart Car here, parking is a straight up bitch.  Someone scraped a good foot and a half of my car because it's so hard to get in an out of these spots...and THANK GOD it was a rental I can't imagine how this was working back in the Miami mafia days when everyone drove those big ass Cadillac's

5 stars for location and the fact there was a bed and pillow... -3 for all the other crap we had to deal with.

Two colleagues and I stayed here on a business trip over Memorial Day weekend. I have to say that I think it's a great little beach motel! If you are looking for a 4-star place, head on over the drawbridge to the resorts. This place is quaint, clean and pleasant. I can't recommend the continental breakfast, but I am pretty picky due to a gluten intolerance. Internet free but a bit spotty. Otherwise, though, the beds are very comfortable, bathroom is exceptionally clean, maid service very good. Parking is convenient and not overly expensive at $5.25 per day. The Thai restaurant next door is excellent. Very convenient to Hollywood Beach (about a mile and a half) with all its fun and food. I did not take advantage of the pool, but many other guests did and it looked very inviting. I did avail myself of a lovely deck over the pool and enjoyed some time reading in the Florida humidity. A nice place to stay for a long weekend.

My hotel room was free, so I can't complain too much. For a motel, this place was ok. The hotel did tell us they were out of towels, so one of our guys found the linen closet and took some extras, just in case. The room didn't smell, was adequately clean, and contained a fridge & microwave. The sink was outside of the bathroom, but the bathroom portion didn't have a fan. So, if you're brushing your teeth at the sink, you can hear everything your roommate's doing in the bathroom. There was also an in-room safe (which is nice, considering there wasn't at the Courtyard Marriott in Torrance).

The reason why you'd want this hotel is if you plan on hanging out in the historic downtown part of Hollywood, FL. We were with the American Outlaws (supporters of the US Men's National Team) last weekend for the USA vs. Honduras game. The Ramada rents out offices connected at the back of the hotel, which lead right into the downtown strip. Our bar was just a quick stumble across the street, so the location was ideal.

I never ate the continental breakfast or utilized the parking garage. Am I a fan of Ramada Inns? Not really, since being a motel, you can hear people talking loudly as they're walking by or waiting for someone. Am I a fan of this motel being simply a place to sleep with a convenient location? Yes.

I booked hotel reservations for Saturday, July 12th - Tuesday, July 15 through southwest.com at the Ramada Downtown Hollywood, Florida.  I knew this was not the nicest hotel but it was close to my event and got fairly good reviews so I decided to go ahead and give it a try.  The reservation was booked through Southwest and it was prepaid.
I arrived at the hotel and it was not very nice, however if initially appeared "okay" or not scary.  The corridors we outside, carpeted and smelled like human urine, mildew and cigarette smoke and there was trash everywhere.  There was a washer/dryer right outside my door and the use of the washer/dryer along with the pool and tiki bar made the room unbearably noisy.  All these factors made the hotel pretty awful but the worst part was when two unidentified men entered my room in the middle of the night by using a card key issued by the desk.  I was in the bathroom, half dressed and getting ready for bed.  They come right in and said; "is this room XXX", "we are booked in this room.  I was so shocked I just asked them to leave and proceded to use the security chain on the door along with a chair under the handle.  The next day I went to the lobby numerous times to speak to the manager and finally just left my cell number with the front desk clerk and decided to check out.  I felt unsafe in the room and especially after the front desk gave someone else a key.  I work for the in a high security job and even though this was not a business trip, I had my laptop, identification and my badge in my room.  Of course I also had my clothing and belongings too.  I felt I could not chance leaving these things as the room was not secure and I couldn't drag my belongings with me every time I went some place. There was a small safe in the room but it had no instructions and it was not large enough to store all my valuables.  Besides, if strangers are coming into my room in the night with a card key, what would make me think these safes are secure?
The whole experience was terrible, from the check-in to the garage parking to the room that was outdated and in poor repair but the worst thing was that someone entered my room because the desk gave them a key.
It was by far the worst hotel experience I've ever had.  I had to disrupt my trip and move to other accommodations and I booked online and the room was prepaid.  I was never offered and sort of discount when I spoke to the front desk, only an offer of another room.  Because of the lack of security and the old and dirty conditions I declined.  Under the circumstances I believe whoever is in charge should give me a full refund.

The first room  - toilet did not flush (yes, I held the handle down).  The second - completely flooded.  The third, fine though we couldn't really notice any "upgrade" besides having a couch.  Did we get a price reduction?  Or perhaps free ($5.25) parking?  Nope.  Decent location and I suppose we got what we paid for.  And to their defense - Ft Lauderdale apparently had record breaking rain the night before (5").

I'm so torn about writing this review.

One easy star awarded for location, which is pretty amazeballs for the area, right smack in the middle of cute, historic, charming downtown Hollywood, surrounded by all the clubs and restaurants and shops and galleries, within walking distance of pretty much everything cool in town, and 5 minutes by car from the beach and the cutie cute little boardwalk thereupon. (I heard you can take the downtown trolley to the beach for a buck but didn't investigate that.) If you stay here, you'll be 15-ish minutes from Ft. Lauderdale and half an hour or so from Miami. You can't do much better than that.

A less enthusiastic but still pretty solid half star awarded for the super kitschy-weird decor, if you're into that (which I am). I wouldn't know very well how to describe it - it's some funky combo of art deco and tiki bar and, uh, acid trip, better left to photos than an attempt at verbal description; and the other half of a star for the price, which for the location is pretty damn fair.

And then... There's everything else.

The rooms are a'ight, nothing to write home about, but not worthy of complaint, either. They're clean and comfortable enough, though certainly nothing fancy. I stayed in two different doubles in my time there and they were very... OK. They all seem to have fridges and safes and microwaves, if you use that sort of thing.

The parking garage, which though delightfully cheap for hotel parking at around five bucks when I stayed, is absolutely treacherous. Every single time I pulled in or out I was positively trippin' that I was going to smack the crap out of someone's car or a wall. Many were the 22-point turns I made in that bad boy, sweating bullets all the while. Parking here is a pretty stressful experience.

Saving the worst for last, we have the customer service. I have stayed in - tens? maybe even a hundred or more - hotels and motels in my day and this is by far the WORST service I have EVER received. It was entirely in a class by itself. The managers in particular, when asked to address issues the regular desk agents had already rudely dismissed, were so insanely argumentative and rude it was hard to believe. And it wasn't just to me (and I'm SUPER nice, by the way). I saw the general manager literally throw their body over the desk to sputter angrily in a guest's face over something the guest was asking for. They were just... asking for something. And the response was downright violent.
Another time I heard a different person at the desk literally screaming at a guest.
I mean, WHAT?
And when my plans changed and I called to request keeping my room for an additional night, the person I spoke with said, basically, "tough sh1t," that they had to keep rooms open for new reservations, therefore an established guest was SOL. Then when I was polite and deferential (though incredulous) in my response, I was told snidely that "maybe you should  just stay somewhere else." I mean... You can ask anyone. I am the NICEST, sweetest, most pleasant customer you would ever want to have. If I ever need anything, I am downright apologetic. I sweep up after my kids in restaurants and I tip 40%. I was not rude and I did nothing to warrant this outrageous behavior. And I'm sure the other people I observed being abused didn't either.
So let's dock them a star for that, which honestly is still pretty dang generous.
Because at the end of the day, how you're treated counts for almost everything. And others, I would advise to book a stay here only if they are happy to be abused and possibly have their room given away. So, you know... probably not.
(FYI, my husband is sitting here as I write this, thinking I am being WAY to generous, so bear that in mind.)

Oh yeah, and the wifi suuuuuucks.

It is a total shit hole in need of remodeling. It was safe enough, but such a dump. The staff were nice, and it has parking, but the lot felt really unsafe to me.

Not to expensive but they do not tell you there is an extra fee to park. Pool is nice. Free breakfast is just so so. Feel like we got overcharged at the poolside tiki bar, $24 for 2 small mixed drinks. Beds were comfortable. We basically just stayed here to sleep so I would definitely recommend for that.

It needs attention yes; is an old hotel; but I have been there many times and the staff is super nice, specially (front desk, and cleaning lady's) I love the new pool and location.
