Ramada Inn Longview Kilgore Reviews
Old but new Nov 27, 2009
Kilgore, Texas is a really nice town just off interstate 20. It has seen a boom in hotel properties, which has forced the older properties to step up their renovations and be a bit more competitive in not only service, but the physical condition of the buildings and the amenities. The physical layout of this massive property doesn’t have an indoor hallway, so you have drive up to your room parking. In today’s society, I guess that can be either good or bad. They have a nice courtyard with a really large pool and deck area. The hotel doesn’t offer free laundry, but they do have coin operated machines for guest. The fresh coat of paint that was recently added along with the well manicured grounds is very inviting.
The rooms are rather big and they offer a brand of soaps called Relax and Retreat, citrus ginger shampoo, conditioner and lotion. This was a very clean smelling product. Each room has a small coffee maker, iron/board, alarm clock, direct-dial phone, data port and voice mail with free local and toll-free connection calls. Many of the rooms have a Microwave and a refrigerator, but you need to ask for that before you check inn. The TVs were the old large tube TVs. You know we have been so spoiled with technology. The main this is that it worked and there were a variety of channels to choose from.
Each guest is treated to a full hot breakfast at the restaurant next door called the Kilgore Café. The free hot meal is included in the price of your stay. The place is a country little restaurant that serves traditional southern comfort food including Grits, biscuits and gravy and a variety of other favorites. I am sure no one will leave hungry.
The entire hotel staff including the maids were all very nice and wanted to make your stay pleasant. Although the beds, which only had two pillows on them, were not the most comfortable and the towels the fluffiest, it was still pretty clean and worth the small amount we paid for the evening. This properties is also one of the very first properties you will see when you enter Kilgore from the north. It sits next to a Days inn that has also recently undergone some renovations.
