I am rating the Bangor Ramada as average because of the balance of positives and negatives. First, for the positives. The rooms are beautiful. My wife and I have stayed here several times, during which we have tried out all of the hotel's room options, and each were more than satisfactory. The rooms are well accommodated, and the beds are comfortable.
Now, for the negatives, which - to us, at least - are very important. We have often experienced Internet outages and, when these have occurred, management is most unhelpful, showing what can only be described as disinterest. My wife and I both work online so, when we travel to Bangor, as we frequently do, we generally check in to the hotel early so that we can work. The ability to do so pays for the cost of the hotel, as opposed to driving directly home again, especially when it's near the end of our pay period. Therefore, if we are unable to work, there is a loss of income rather than mere inconvenience.
Another negative, which doesn't rate nearly as highly on a scale of importance, is the on-site restaurant. The food is good enough, but the restaurant is not open very many hours out of the day. Since there are several other restaurants in the area, this is not a huge concern, in my opinion.
Poor Internet connections are a deal breaker for us, though. So, as much as I like the rooms, I don't believe we'll be staying here anymore. I can appreciate that anyone can have an Internet problem from time to time, as we do at home every now and then, but the problems with the Internet connections at the Ramada do not appear to be a concern of the management, and the management's lack of appreciation for our need for a reliable Internet connection is unacceptable.
In conclusion, if you simply want a nice room at a reasonable price, the Bangor Ramada may be a good choice for you; but if you are a business traveler or someone who, like us, works away from home, where a reliable Internet connection is a requirement, you might want to try somewhere else.
