Unacceptable A review of Ramada Inn Boston

We had booked 2 nights in late July 2003 over the net. We stayed one and escaped then. The reasons: Very unfriendly staff at the reception, but even more the design of the hotel: almost all rooms have windows to the inside aisles only. All air condition exhaust blow into this aisles, no chance to have a window to the outside that opens. For the above reasons, the rooms are very dark and if you open your door, you get all the smell from the inside building and the exhaust of the air conditions. The only place to get fresh air is at the pool. The location of the hotel is right in between major roads, so it is noisy and if you want to go anywhere by foot, you got to cross those major roads. No walkways or pedestrian crossings. The pool is nice but always too busy with the many people staying there. I am not claustrophobic, but at 4:30 am after the first night I was desperately looking on the net for another hotel. If you can put up with the above, price is ok, amenities as well. Shuttle service is great, but all together it takes 35 minutes to get into town. For us it was a nightmare!
