I am not sure this would apply. Ask your 504 coordinator to be sure.

They have portable ones that you can find on Amazon. Not very expensive. Google portable handicap ramps

You can buy online- aluminum ones if the grade isn’t too steep. You can grant the reasonable accommodation but you don’t have to pay for it.

Rar are for handicap residents not handicap guests.

Now, I thought reasonable accommodations were for residents only. You may need to check with your manager on this one.

They may have to pay for it and the company can install it.

Not sure this would be your responsibility to pay for, check with your regional and maybe lawyer

In this case the reasonable accommodation would likely be allowing them to install it as opposed to paying for it
That’s my guess

For example if you said “nope you can’t install a ramp” that’s the problematic issue IMHO (not a lawyer)

I would think it is not your responsibility because it is not for the resident.
