Ramada Inn Cumberland in Cumberland

While staying at any hotel after 3 nights of camping and riding would be luxurious, I strongly recommend against staying at this hotel in Cumberland. The amenities listed are misleading.
Restaurant: Not Open
Bar: Not Open
Breakfast: Ridiculous - the smallest Quaker granola bar in the world + a banana and a bottle of water. What a joke. Thankfully there is a McDs a block away where I got something more substantive.

I hate to burst your bubble, but what constitutes free breakfast has deteriorated pert near everywhere during the pandemic at hotels across this land.
At least the Ramada is 30 bucks cheaper per night than the Fairfield Inn in Cumberland. For the price of Fairfield,I could stay at a B&B for the same price.
Then again, I have heard good things about Fairfield Inn in Cumberland.
For me, the big thing about riding the C&O and GAP is the journey, not the lodging.
Cumberland is the third largest city on the C&O/Gap route. There are restaurants and Bars in downtown Cumberland.
After a long day riding, I would personally go to a local joint than the hotel bar or restaurant.

Added a bike washing station and you can take your bike to your room. Tell the front desk your off the trail and get a 25% off the room rate (some occupancy restrictions apply). Stay includes free breakfast...happy riding!

all of the hotels along the way that I have used over the yeas has a hose for cleaning the bike and let one take the bike in the room.

Lenny, while that is true he did mention a free breakfast and 25% off. Plus this is a Ramada Inn and not a Super 8, that's the different.

I Have one problem with that. It is the old Holiday Inn, I stayed there twice before the Fairfield was built. It is in front of the rail yard and the engines are switching all night. worst sleep I ever got. Fairfield has free breakfast as well and you can also roll your bike in. Oh yes a washing station outside as well. And it is right on the towpath.

Sounds like Lenny only gives the Ramada 1 Star.

I guess we all have our favorites. I was happy just staying in a tent and cooking my own food. To each his own. Just enjoy the ride.

no favorites just couldn't get any sleep there.

I'm not disputing Lennie's experience; and I've not stayed there. We did sit in the lobby several hours waiting for the westbound Capitol Limited, and never heard any trains. Although the CSX mainline with lots of train trafic is 1 1/2 blocks away, the rail yard is not in front of (or in back of) the hotel. It's clearly visible on the map about 1.5 miles away. The Fairfield Inn is actually slightly closer.
Holiday Inn Cumberland is now a Ramada Inn

Was surprised when we rolled into town to find the Holiday Inn is now a Ramada Inn. Still good service, only the name has changed.

Do they still allow you to roll the bikes right onto the elevator and into the room?

Stayed here in 2008 before our ride to Georgetown. Staff was very accomodating. They let us keep our bikes in a secure room right next to the reception desk. Close to restaurants. I would stay here again.
