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

I'm on my 2nd night here, for the state wrestling tournament. For full disclosure, I need to say I booked this room on expedia and did so because it was economical. $79/ night. Not sure if some rooms are better than what I'm in but am curious if there are, or if they are all like mine, which is ok... More

Simple but has everything you might need. Perfect location, clean, quiet, very welcoming staff. Cookies and lemonade in the evening, hot waffles (and more) for breakfast, or Elmers next door. Highly recommend.

My room was very clean, the desk was friendly and the location convenient. There's nothing fancy about the place, but I don't think I could have done much better. The breakfast is very heavy on carbs (donuts, cereal, waffles, etc.), so I found myself trying to get some protein elsewhere. When visiting family in Pocatello, I'll probably stay here again.
