Loved having our wedding reception here!! The location is great, easy to get to (and find, for those coming from out of town). The waterpark is just an added perk to all the wonderful things they do! The price of the room includes so much of what other places charge extra for! The price includes all the decorating- the room, the head table, the cake table, etc. It also includes the dance floor set up, bartenders, use of the a/v screens, and on and on! Wonderful experience. The ONLY flaw was that we had planned for kids meals (and had given them accurate numbers). On the day, there were no kids meals, all were given adult meals. Not a HUGE issue when compared to the grand scheme of things!Sent on 09/18/2011

We thought the Ramada provided a beautiful venue for our reception. We did most of the set up, by our own choice, but the Ramada staff offered their help. We chose to bring a snack mix for part of our appetizers, and they charged us $10 PER PACKAGE to open them. We thought that was a little ridiculous. Overall, we had a good experience there.Sent on 09/23/2013
