What makes Madden mad #21

“Late calls. Okay, you check into a hotel. The big meeting is tomorrow. All you want is a simple 6:30 am wake-up call. But when do you get it? At 8:30! So then what? Bring clocks? Tick-tock, tick-tock. The whole idea ticks me off!

Don’t get mad. Get Ramada. Where a 6:30 wake-up call rings when it should. Believe me, when it comes to taking care of you, you’ll never catch Ramada sleeping.”


What makes Madden glad #17

“The Big Reception. Face it. When you’re on the road, it’s not always a picnic. Nice to know at the end of the day there’s a Ramada that greets you and treats you like someone special.

The desk clerk, the restaurant hostess, all the folks… they don’t need coaching on how to be friendly. That’s why Ramada can’t be beat.”


John Madden was a American football player in the National Football League, a Super Bowl-winning head coach with the Oakland Raiders, and a color commentator for NFL telecasts.
