Over the years I've spent a total of maybe 2 months staying at this motel. For a long time it was a Best Western, but as an older motel it probably fell below their standards and got kicked out of their chain. Then it became an independent and offered good budget rates for years. When it joined the Rodeway Inn... More

Wanted a pet friendly near I80 for a cross country rip. Checked in at night...looked a little seedy but ok. Inside the room had an odd smell, the bed sheets were wrinkled, the water tasted bad. Breakfast consisted of an egg biscuit, cereal, or white toast. No fruit, yogurt, etc. Don't do it!

I just don't like the way they do business at this place. Someone needs to bring these people down. I've been at wwwaayyy better Rodeway Inns. Then this one. Its worth about 35 bucks a night but they charge like 89. Got to say not worth it. Plus they're attitude. Don't go people keep driving or sleep in the car... More

I want to go on record that a one star rating is about 11 higher than this place deserves... Yes, this place on a rating scale is a MINUS 11 and I'm being kind. I was returning to Denver from Toronto following the death of my brother. I needed a place to stay to break up a 20+ hour drive.... More

The room had a pungent smell of alcohol. Bedding was terrible; blanket had burn holes and other large holes in it. Sheets looked like they had been slept in already. Couldn't stay all night; just decide to keep on driving.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The staff was super friendly and they went out of their way to accommodate us in any way they could. The breakfast was really good too and it was included in the price. We would definitely stay here again!

This property is has seen a better day. It is beyond renovating. The interior smells of smoke and has been in need of some TLC for a long time. Obviously it isn't going to get it. The manager/owner is only taking the money out and putting nothing back into the place. Stained towels, holes in blankets, woodwork & carpeting shot.... More

The room was adequate with two queen sized beds, but the bathroom left much to be desired. The sink had no plug and the tub had horrible green stains from the faucets to the drain. The drain was rusted and the tiles in the ceiling were water stained from the room above. The continental breakfast was good with avariety of... More

I walked into my room and immediately decide I would not stay there. Why? The giant stain on the couch was one reason. Room smelled really musty. I went to turn on the AC and there was a sign that said not to put in on high or it would quit working. Went to look out the window and could... More
