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.

It was exactly what the hubby and I were looking for while visiting ISU. The location was great. I admit I was a bit afraid that it would be a dive based on some of the ratings, it wasn't fancy but there was a fridge and microwave in our room, things were clean, people were friendly and we got breakfast...

Very clean, equipped with micro & frig, comfy bed, good value, friendly staff, good breakfast but heavy on the cereals. R103. Did not test WiFi. Forgot receipt which they give you in the morning - I hope they mail it.

Krista was awesome. She helped in every way she could. Rooms were big and comfortable. They even had lemonade and cookies for my daughter. Easy to get to. Very pleasant experience. Everything in the room functioned properly. Our stay was quiet and peaceful. Just what we needed after our long drive. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!!!!

Excellent location near college. Quiet neighborhood. Small room, but very clean. Comfortable bed. Great value for the money. Breakfast was good. Staff were very helpful. No elevator. Great place to eat next door.

We booked online and wished the pictures were updated, as well as the rooms. Found the carpets with worn holes in the room and went through 4 remotes and never got one that worked. Had called earlier in the evening to try to get directions and was put on "hold" only to have to listen to the clerk helping someone... More

With my AAA discount, we were able to stay here for $45/night. For the price, we were pleasantly surprised! While it's not the newest hotel in Pocatello, the Rodeway Inn is clean and the staff was accommodating. We were also impressed with the continental breakfast (fresh waffles!) and the warm cookies and lemonade served every evening. Located directly across the... More
