We hope to see you again and safe... More

Stayed here in early July, 2014 and was pleasantly surprised. My prior impressions of Rodeway Inns was that they were very budget and very basic, with the potential to be well below average but I can say that the room was very clean and well accommodated. The value and quality was excellent considering were were on the busiest interstate on... More

We were extremely happy with our stay & would stay here again. Had everything we needed at a very reasonable price. No big frills like other big chain hotels that only leaves you with a big "BILL".. The rooms were extremely clean, quiet & well kept. The staff goes out of their way to help with anything they can. Very... More

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice, now, while moving our student-daughter into and out of Yale in nearby New Haven. It's not as costly as the New Haven hotels and has all that we need. We stayed for 3 nights each time. Although I am used to more frills, I really like this place. With a... More

Recently we moved from the area & now coming home for holidays means staying in a hotel. This was our 1st time here & it was clean comfortable & spacious. There was even enough room to wrap all our gifts while sipping hot tea I could make in the micro. This is now our home away from home. Nothing fancy-... More

We reserved this room through Expedia as non smoking. Apparently Expedia does not care, so the room they reserved for us was supposed to be smoking. Although we came late (after 10pm) the owner of the hotel, Mr Patel, who was attending the reception desk, gave us a room that would be more expensive, but he honored the price from... More

We travel a lot and this is our first experience with bed bugs. The property itself is in dire need of updating. The current managers are nice, they work hard, they are trying to work with what they have but I am not sure they understand American standards and expectations. We thought Rodeway was a big enough name and would... More

I am sorry that you had a less than satisfactory experience. After your review we spent over $10,000 to fumigate the hotel in order to be 100% sure that there were no issues with any pests. We passed every inspection and have ensured that the property has remained pest free. As the owner I take pride in running a superior... More

Location was good but. Motel a bit outdated. The room was OK. Fridge was noisy so we ended up turning it off. Bathroom door would not close properly. Major complaint would be the continental breakfast. Coffee and some muffins. No effort made to provide a decent continental breakfast. Providing coffee with powdered mik is something I would get a car... More

We were thrilled to book 3 nights here, we extended to a full week. The owner was so kind and friendly! We commented on the lovely aromas upon entering for check-in and within moments he brought us a bowl of dinner with flat bread to share! Who does that? He and his brother built this motel in 1980 and through... More

As retirees who travel a lot, we found this hotel well located, with large quiet rooms, and very clean. Special mention for amazingly quiet air conditioner during hot July stay. A bit older and perhaps a little worn around the edges, but definitely a step up from other Rodeway properties we've stayed at. Mr. Patel and his family have owned... More
