Should have read this before I left. The shower curtain rod and the towel rod were falling out of the wall. Dust buildup behind the beds and night table. The beds were uncomfortable and saggy. The breakfast was hardly worth mentioning. The only thing that was nice about it was the view. It sits high on hill and you can... More

I agree that the only thing that deserves the 2nd star is the guy at the front desk (Denis I guess). The room smells horrible, it smells urine! There were yellow urine marks on the toilet seat, yuk! I had to clean it on my own to use it. I could not have a shower because I was very disgusted... More

The only thing good about this hotel was the young man at the front desk. He was helpful and pleasant. The room smelled, wasn't very clean and was circa 1970... And it wasn't cheap! I wish a real brand would grab this kid and plug him into a good property.

This hotel is run by a family and they are not professionals in the hospitality industry. The woman in front of me at check in was close to tears trying to change rooms because of a filthy bathroom. I joined her in wanting to see the available rooms. The young boy at the front desk did not know how to... More

This is a average place off the major road. The room was clean and comfortable. No frills and the on site restaurant was closed. The breakfast consisted of dry cereal, coffee and sweet rolls. Not bad for the price. I would stay there again when in the area..

While the attendant was helpful and sincere, the room was--awful! The first thing we had to do was buy some Fabreze and spray the rooms to try and eliminate the smell of mold. The beds were uncomfortable (mattress), the walls paper thin, no ironing board and iron, and--mostly substandard for #150/night! We will never select Rodeway Inn for future motels.

This is a basic older style motel (park at door) in a picturesque quiet location. Very friendly and helpful staff. The on site restaurant is closed. To sum up this is a clean comfortable inn with no frills.

OK..the price is decent and the location is great. However, YIKES! This was like stepping back in time--except, it was not a clean time. Old furnishings, gray stained sheets with cigarette burned blanket, towels that needed to be tossed as they were tattered/ripped, yellow stained tub, shower curtain with mold, window fan positioned to blow curtains up and into the...

I have stayed at this motel many times over the last few years while attending the horse show in Saugerties. I choose to stay here because it is close enough to the horse show, without paying the prices to be right in Saugerties.

you can see this was once a top property, if only b/c of the location and the beauty of the place... the staff is sincere and polite, breakfast.. don't bother.. go for the coffee. rooms are clean and comfortable... would be better in rooms "behind the pool" if WiFi reached that far. Hope someone takes over the steak house there...... More
