People are never at the front desk, they run out from some back room every time you go in and stop at the front desk. The rooms are clean. Beds are getting old and uncomfortable. Price is OK, I stay here for the Wyndham points.

We were in Spirit Lake for a wedding and spent two nights at the Ramada. The room was fine (clean, bed comfortable), the water was hot, the breakfast OK (no fresh fruit). Really nothing wrong but there also wasn't anything that stood out to give this a better than average rating.
