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

The hotel had 2 wifi network, one of them was short-range and didn't reach enough my room (I had to go out to to the corridor to get connected), and the other one didn't work. Finally,during the check-out, I left 2 postcard to the reception woman to be posted, but never arrived to destination, so I guess she lost my... More

Driving back from a weekend in the Daks and it was getting too late to keep driving. All we wanted was a clean, quiet place to get some shut eye and this inn was perfect. The staff were super friendly when I called ahead, when we checked in, and in the morning when we checked out. The room was super... More

We just recently stayed here for 3 days. The room itself could use a paint job, but other than that, it was clean & comfortable, The Staff were extremely helpful & friendly. The rates were excellent. There was not a lot of water pressure in the shower, but it still worked good. Some hotels we have stayed in, the water... More

I've been here a few times lately. Stayed in a few different rooms. First, room 203 does most definitely have that nasty stain on the side of the mattress as a previous reviewer posted. It's definitely not blood(as the previous reviewer suggested, most likely coffee) but the owners refuse to even admit that the stain is there, they won't even... More

My wife and I found this to be a perfect place to stay while spending a weekend shopping in Watertown. It's not much to look at from the outside but don't be deceived. Upon entering we were suprized at how spacious and clean the Lobby and adjoining breakfast areas were. We were checked-in promptly and cheerfully by a very friendly... More

I needed a place to crash on my travels and stayed at the Rodeway, It was clean and comfortable and I didn't have any issues. The owners (I think) went out of there way to make sure I was comfortable. I would stay again oin my way through.
