Very run down and noisy. Breakfast consisted of very few choices. If you are looking for a fairly cheap place to just stop for the night during travel (it's two miles off the highway) the it's ok, but not a place to stay for an extended period of time.

After a tiring day, I was looking for a smiling and nice face when I was checking in.. The man who was wearing earring and a nice t-shirt at the front desk, was rude. Probably he got nervous when I was taking pics in the lobby. Anyway, here are the pics.

On our way to Indiana, we stopped in Effingham, Illinois for the night. We chose the Rodeway Inn because they allowed our pet dog. When we pulled up I noticed the portico was missing the ceiling and wood and materials were hanging down. Bad sign. We then checked in, received our key then drove around to the room. The room...

This place was the most disgusting hotel we have stayed in yet. We were so exhausted so had no other choice. I took photos of the walls and doors... there are black greasy fingerprints all over everything. I am sure I caught a disease! Make sure you get on antibiotics after you leave this place or better yet save your... More

The TV did not work which was explained to me when I checked in but I did not care as I was on a long road trip and simply wanted a place to sleep. But the air conditioner was not working either nor did the coffee maker work. The place had an indoor pool but it was not in a... More

Blood on the walls. Untouchable remote I set my clean clothes on the floor and picked up dirt and dust.the hotel across the parking lot might be a little but more expensive. So if you can't stay there sleep in your car

About 7 pm we exited 1-57 at Effingham (I know; sounds like a bad joke when you say it out loud) and searched for a place where we could park at our door. Rodeway Inn is right off the highway and had a pleasant, English-speaking local clerk. Pool and hot tub broken and no King rooms available, but we got... More

I understand the problems you can have with an old property but for heaven sakes...Does anyone know how to clean a room? Disgusting handprints, stuff on the bathroom walls that I hate to think what it could be, lack of lighting in rooms a disgusting pool a nonfunctional hot tub. With all that, I can see the owners are greedy... More
