I spent three days at the Ramada in Pottsville where I could walk to the Courthouse, Schuylkill County Historical Society (which is wonderful) and most importantly the Yuengling Brewery where they have very interesting tours and sampling at the end.
The rooms are clean and spacious and the king bed was very comfortable.
The continental breakfast was so-so

We stayed at the Ramada Pottsville for an event in April 2017. We stayed here because of the location to our event. We arrived at our non-smoking room and were greeted with a nasty smell of smoke and musty. Due to the event the hotel was booked solid, so a room change was not possible. Luckily the windows open, so we could air it out a bit. We mentioned it to housekeeping and they put dryer sheets in the air conditioner vents (it did help). The room was not in good repair, peeling wallpaper, etc. The bed was comfortable but had the room odor in it. The free breakfast was sad at best. Very dry tasteless eggs with very greasy bacon, not well supplied. You would think they would realize that if the hotel is booked, you need more people or supplies or whatever to keep up. This is an event we do every spring and we are trying to decide if we want to go through this again next year. The location is perfect, but the hotel is sad.

The room smelled awful. They said it was non-smoking but the room smelled like an ash tray or the worst misty smell I've ever smelled. Even the pillows, linens, etc smelled. I got almost no sleep the first night. I left s note for housekeeping. They put fabric softener sheets in the air conditioning unit and put the fan on. Clever and it worked to corner up the odor for the most part. The room was in disrepair with stains on the walls. The hotel is conveniently located to the event we were attending and priced very reasonably, however I will have to think twice before staying there again. We were attending a yearly event and our whole family stays there. Other family members did not have as bad of an experience that we did. The breakfast left a lot to be desired as well. The front desk staff were lovely and the housekeepers" Angie and Angie" did their best.

I stayed here about 6 years ago, it's apparent that renovations have greatly improved the rooms (I was in 415) as it was a bit dingy years ago. It was unfortunate that I realized that the thermostat was "unresponsive" to any adjustment when going to bed around 11:30pm. I felt it was too late to note to the front desk (my husband was sleeping) so although the bed was comfortable, the room was way too hot. My husband "checked out" the breakfast offerings at 8:30 prior to his walk and reported good offerings. However, we went to breakfast together at 9:30 prior to the 10am "end", the coffee urn was empty along with the pans of scrambled eggs, french toast or sausage that he had seen an hour earlier, he reported it to the front desk. Coffee, french toast and sausage were promptly replenished. The issue with the thermostat was reported on check-out. The top priority to me is a clean room and the renovated room was spotless.

Room Tip: Room 415 is close to the elevator, no "view" at all!
