This motel is close to major highways, 24 hour shopping and multiple quality restaurants, yet it's just far enough away from these activities to give you a feeling of tranquility. The owners seem to understand 'curb appeal' and have pride in the appearance...nice flowers and grounds. And their pride also shows in the room which was truly spotless...cleaner than my... More

We booked this hotel for my mother while visiting over the holidays. The staff treated her like royalty! The room was clean and had a kitchenette that was wonderful. Nice view and close to everything. Like I said, the staff was so wonderful to my elderly mother and she felt so welcome. Thank you for treating our mom so well... More

Staying here again on an upcoming trip, figured it was about time I put it on paper. This place is truly a gem. Situated right off 95 and close to 395, it is a great location for many area attractions! Quiet area and safe location. Walmart close by as well as an assortment of eateries, gas and dunkin's!

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn after a concert at Mohegan Sun. The front desk was very helpful when I made the reservation when I had to call back and change dates at the last minute. They could not have been more eager to please. The property is very basic, decor a bit tired, but spotlessly clean and priced right.... More

We decided to deviate from our usual stays at Hampton Inn to try the Rodeway Inn in Waterford, CT. The hotel is very convenient to the interstate and most attractions in the New London area. This location backs up to woods and offers a large front yard complete with a swimming pool, volleyball court, grill, and even a small baseball... More

Five stars at a motel in Waterford is not the same as five stars at the Plaza because you must compare to similar properties - but this place is delightful for a roadside hotel. The staff is lovely. The property is well appointed and clean. There is a pool which I have not used, but others seem to be enjoying.... More

Hello everybody, After 5 years of vacation at the Rodeway Inn with my family, this is my evaluation. First of all, the motel is situated near everything, stores, restaurants and activities. On the other hand, the rooms are very clean and are big. The bathrooms are clean. To conclude, the staff is doing an amazing job at making their clients... More

Trying for a nice getaway - my husband and I took our 2 kids to this place. Upon our arrival the placed seemed nice enough and clean - we did pay $172.00 which is a nice amount as far as I am concerned. We were in the room maybe 2 hours and then went to dinner and came back around... More

This place was a terrific bargain. The room was large, clean and had a fridge and microwave. The pool was great. The staff was friendly and funny. I wasn't sure what to expect for a roadside motel but this place was great. We were looking for a nice place near the ocean but more affordable than the ones right on... More
