We stayed just overnight on a road trip. This is a budget location, as reflected in the price. However, the front desk was spot on and provided friendly and very helpful customer service. The room was neat and clean and smelled fresh. The bathroom was clean. The facilities are older but definitely adequate. A complete continental breakfast was served in... More

We understand that Rodeway Inn is the lower-range motel in the Choice portfolio. Since we were staying only one night in Pocatello, the price at Rodeway worked for us. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is a bit dated, but secure, newly painted interior, and extremely friendly staff. Mike checked us in, offered to hold some newly backed chocolate chip... More

Our first time staying at a Rodeway and definitely the last. Nothing has been refreshed or updated in at least 20+ years. It is mind boggling that a hotel chain would accept such an outdated low end product in their system. Again, it got the family to a nights rest but we certainly weren't about to lounge around the next... More

Big sign states friendliest Hotel but I beg to differ. Front desk clerk was rude...but she later apologized. When I went for breakfast they were out of most stuff and still 45 minutes left before closing. Went to front desk and asked first person in blue shirt that I saw and asked if they had any more bread (for toast)... More

Very dirty lobby with loitering tweaker looking types hanging around. Plan on doing breakfast somewhere else, it's just carb-loaded garbage. I would recommend spending a few extra bucks and go elsewhere.

I was skeptical when I arrived as it looked dingy. Desk clerk was lovely, rooms were clean, but well utilized. Great motel in that they welcome dogs at $10.00 a night. You might want to get a room facing the front of the motel. If your room is located in the back and is on the ground floor, you are... More

I'm reviewing this with the expectations of staying in a 2 star hotel. Not a 4 or 5 star hotel which I find a lot of people do. I've stayed here numerous times because it's relatively comfortable and the price is right. The staff has always been friendly with one exception. The rooms are a little small but you get... More

Basic, clean budget motel. We got a good night of sleep in a comfortable bed. Watery coffee and only basics for breakfast. Right next to a good restaurant. I'd stay here again. It's located directly across the street from the University, which is a lovely area to walk around.

I would compare this establishment to the "Bates Motel", dingy,dirty, smelly and the list goes on.The breakfast was a joke and a diabetics nightmare! Pay a few bucks more and get a decent place. We will be staying well away from the Rodeway Inn University.

On our way and needed a quick overnight and looking for a value location. While "dated" the property is very clean and kept up. Beds and linens were clean/comfortable, the bath fixtures functioned well and lots of hot water. The complimentary breakfast was generous but only had u bake waffles as "hot" serving. Better price than other Choice Hotel chains... More
