Old fashioned motor court places you off busy University Ave. Fountain in courtyard muffles traffic noise. Recent upgrade to exterior & rooms. Friendly staff. Room cozy, bed very comfortable. Great value. Close to shopping, university, and restaurants.

Obviously, at that price, specifically in the US, one cannot expect too much. But this "not too much" this inn - or actually rather motel - very nicely delivers. It is reasonably located, the rooms are in a reasonable shape, the staff is reasonably friendly. The rooms are somewhat run down, even though they scream in your face that the... More

I stayed here until I could find an apartment. I wasn't sure about it after reading some of the reviews but very pleased after I got there. Location is on a very busy University ave & can be easily missed . The dive way is just an opening to the street but opens to a large square w/ rooms on... More

We were given a room that stunk horribly of some strange sour odor that, despite traveling all day w a small child, we decided we had to leave (15 min after our arrival) at 12am on a Fri morning in January. I have asthma & my lungs were literally burning. When my husband called the front desk, the attendant pretended... More

Kind of dubious, but I was really blown away by how nice this little property is. Very clean, spotless, well maintained, and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. Location is great too!!! It's very basic....BUT, if you look closely, you'll see great attention to detail. For example, the parking lot. Spotless, well landscaped, etc. If they pay that much... More

Clean. Fresh coat of paint on interior and exterior surfaces. Bathroom seemed fresh, newly appointed. Room spotless. Furniture was a bit worn but not in any way that mattered. Man at the desk was friendly an efficient. I had a package mailed to the office to hold for my arrival. Before I could even ask for it, the manager was... More

As long as you know what type of place you are staying at, you will not be disappointed. The Rodeway inn is what I would consider as the typical US motel where you park your car in front of your room. However, the rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, the shower and the heating work well. It is a... More

The first time I stayed at the Rodeway Inn was wonderful. The room was clean and I really enjoyed my stay. Fast forward 6 months and I grabbed the last room available. What a disappointment! The room was on the street side and had not been renovated. It smelled of mildew and some sort of noxious plastic. It was so... More
