When I go away unless it is for a romantic interlude, All my motel/hotel has to be is clean. The Rodeway was that. I liked that it was out of town so it was very quiet. It is between Buttermilk Falls State Park and Treman State Park with its beautiful falls and gorges. It is all one floor and when... More

The hotel is on the outskirts of town on a noisy road. The mildew smell in the bathroom is almost intolerable. The breakfast was not worth eating other than the orange juice. The suites are spacious, just not a pleasant experience

My family stayed here for a NYS Championship, I see that they doubled the price for the weekend and did not improve the rooms. The room was dirty, the security lock on the inside was missing half the lock, there was very low water pressure and half of the outlets did not function. The room smelled strange, the floor lamp...

Looking at hotel prices in the Ithaca area, prices are high. I was looking for a room the night and just needed some place quiet and clean as I was not going to be spending making waking hours in the room. Overall the place is fair. The rooms were clean, but showed some minor wear. I checked for dust on... More

The sink water pressure was awful. The room and bedding were old. I think the bedding was laundered...or I hope so anyway. Free wifi was the only perk. The clerk was friendly. Location was close to Cornell and stores.

Motels in Ithaca area are very expensive and not worth the extra money unless you think you need and are expecting luxury and white glove services & pool ect... Always the same great service here at Roadway.. The front desk guy is friendly and actually remembered who I am every time I call. the staff is bonus – helpful, pro-active... More

Due to the free WiFi, I guess I can give it a 2 Star. Upon check-in, was afraid to go in the office because they had big wasp flying in the doorway. When I was bold enough to enter the check-in desk and continental breakfast bar was all in the same room. Waffle maker was dirty, and there was a... More

OK, this is a motel. Expect that it won't have all the amenities or perfect facilities. But the rooms were cool on a hot summer's night, the fridge kept the food from our cooler cold, and the breakfast included something that our picky 6 year-old would eat. It's a mile from Buttermilk Falls, so when everyone else in my family... More

This is not a pleasant place to stay. It was dark, musty, and not very clean. It was also very expensive because it was graduation weekend. Perhaps the dorm option would have been better. The breakfast area wasn't very appealing either. Beware!

This MOTEL is not the greatest place in the world, but I've stayed in much nastier places in my travels. The rooms are very basic and accommodate for the needs of most: tv (CRT 4:3 not HD), a fridge with a freezer, iron bored, desk, a coffee maker and a microwave. The wifi works flawlessly. Personally, I can tell this... More
