In early May when staying in Water town, I passed the property and saw that it is no longer a hotel, but now converted into apartments - I have never stayed at the hotel so cannot say if it was good or not, only that it usually appeared as among the most economically priced when searching. - Time to take...

I read all the reviews on the Choice Hotel site for the Rodeway and they were all ok. Should have trusted Trip Advisory, as this was in the top 3 worst hotels we’ve stayed in. As said in another review, the hotel smelled of smoke when you walked in the lobby. When we made a comment about it, the clerk... More

Do yourself a favour: Spend a few extra bucks and go somewhere else. This place was horrible, run down, dirty, and noisy. I feared we might get murdered by some of the other patrons. The bed was terrible and the carpeting was frightening. I found a tiny hopping bug in my towel. The manager, who was nice enough, did not... More

My daughter and I came to Watertown to do some shopping. We ended up staying at the Rodeway Inn. The lady working the desk was nice and called us at 9pm to let you know there was a cancellation, and we got one of the last rooms. She was friendly. We ended up paying $70 plus tax (US) and stayed... More

I used choice reward points to stay one night at this place and I wish I had not wasted on such a dingy place. I walked into the lobby and the place smelled of smoke so badly. If we had not been driving all day and was very tired, I would not have stayed here. They gave us a room... More

Stayed here three days on business. The hotel is next to a main road viaduct. So if you are on the second floor, plan on a noisy stay. They have the most uncomfortable stiff bed with pancake flat pillows. I do not reccomend this hotel.

This was the worse place I have ever stayed in. The carpet on the stairs needed vacuming, the air conditioning had so much dirt in it that it blew out when it was turned on. The bathroom sink was broken. The drawer front next to the bed was hanging on one side. The safe did not work. What's worse is... More

This isn't an awful place and certainly we didn't feel unsafe but, even with the price factored in, it was a poor experience. The staff were very friendly so 4 stars for them. The halls were pretty dirty but the room was ok. The wifi was spotty and did not work in our room (it worked fine in the lobby).... More

If CLEANLINESS isn't a big deal for you...this might be a great value for you. We don't fall into that category. We know it's a motor hotel, but or the price ($70ish) we expected WAY more... Like a paycheck for cleaning our rooms! Pro: not horribly expensive (although we still didn't consider it a good value-- read "cons" below); "Carrie"... More
