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

We arrived, chose this place because they had a pool for the grandkids to play in before bed. No one was at the desk, a note said to pick up the phone and dial "O". 5 minutes later, a clerk comes from the hotel next door, (which they also owned). Got situated in the room, didn't really look that clean...... More

This property needs major upgrading. Lobby is dark and grungy, it took 5-10 minutes for a simple check in. The room was filthy-walls were black, holes in the sheets. Room had no amenities to speak of. Only stayed for a few hours to rest while traveling. Not even worth it for that. Avoid at all costs!
