Ramada Hotels book by Dec 28th for 50% off stays to March 31, 2010

Ramada has a “Happy Holidays” limited time offer of 50% off room rates for bookings made through December 28, 2009 for hotel stays through March 31, 2010 in the US, Canada, Caribbean and Latin America.

50% off rate is based on Best Available Rate (BAR) for participating hotels and valid for unlimited stays during the promotion period.

Ramada is a Wyndham Rewards hotel loyalty program brand.  This special offer rate does not qualify for Wyndham Rewards points or miles.

Bookings can only be made through this Ramada special offer webpage.

Ramada has around 900 hotels globally ranking this hotel brand at 13th largest in the world for 2009.

 

Ramada Sample 50% Off Rates:

The rate was only available at 2 of 6 hotels I checked in my local area for January 5, 2010. Salinas at $29.50 and Santa Cruz at $30 per night is quite a bargain. Priceline won’t even get you near the low rate of $33 after tax. The rate is even cancellable up to 4pm January 5th.

Ramada Hotels are frequently simple midscale roadside lodging, yet some properties are actually resort properties in highly desirable locations. Ramada Beach Resort, Hollywood, Florida is a historic beach front hotel built in 1925 and refurbished recently. The hotel is just 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Airport. The Happy Holidays rate for this hotel for a 4-night stay March 9-13 starts at $77 per night for a double bed room. A Queen Suite is just $112 per night. Three of seven hotels in the Fort Lauderdale area offered the 50% off rate.

I even found some bargain rates for New Year’s Eve in the Silicon Valley.

 

This offer does not include all Ramada hotels in many locations, but where the offer is found the rate is generally an unbeatable value.

Loyalty Traveler Promotion Rating = 4 keys

Great rate value where found, but no loyalty points or miles and limited availability in many locations.
