Best practices on labeling spaces as "accessible"

Is there a generally accepted standard for how wheelchair-accessible a space has to be to "count"? I'm adding accessibility information to the website for a series of monthly events in a number of different spaces. Many of these are kinda-sorta accessible but with serious caveats: "There's a ramp next to the side door, but the organizer needs to remember to unlock the side door and they sometimes forget and there's no doorbell" or "The event itself is on the accessible ground floor but bathrooms and the meal afterwards are in the inaccessible basement" or whatever. (There's a lot of venues, so I'd really like general advice and not just judgments on these two specific examples.)
