Room was dirty and very dated. Carpet turned your bare feet black. Spiders in the bathroom, very small bathroom. But better than camping. AC barely pushed a breeze but worked. They had cable tv but the phone in the room was dead. Pool was very clean and decent. Overall, you get what you pay for here.

Yeah, this isn't the Ritz, but for $50/night and close to The Point, it was everything I expected. The room could have used some updates, we had to plug in the lamps and not a lot of plugs in room for our electronics, but we weren't there to hang out in the room and enjoy the motel... we had other...

The room was dirty, filled with the smell of old, stale smoke and so much grime, mildew and mold that both my wife and I woke up with respiratory problems. The window, of course, could not be opened and the a/c unit just recirculated the stench. The faucets all leaked and when turned on sprayed water in all directions. The... More

First off I am not overly picky about the hotels that I stay in. Rarely do I care about how it looks on the outside or really even on the inside. The hotel yes is outdated and definitely could use an upgrade of some kind. The check in was quick and the employee was super friendly. I went to my... More

First off, the people at the front desk were great. Having worked a front desk job before, I know it is NOT their fault. We got into our room expecting something that was...well, just ok. What we found when we got there - 1. Dead cockroach on the bathroom floor. 2. Used soap in the shower, complete with the previous... More

The room is very average. Bed was hard, bed was also rather small, pillows were mediocre. The TV has a descent amount of channels available. Location is nice for the parks only 10 or 15 minute drive and lots of restaurants in the area. The pool looked nice did not have time to try it out. The girl who checked... More

I read the reviews after I booked and was skeptical. I decided to stay anyway. I'm not sure who the other guest dealt with but when I arrived there were 2 people at the front desk who were awesome! I wish I could remember their names. They were very helpful, suggested places to eat for me and my family and... More

The lobby had an awful unpleasant odor which was a turn off. Front clerk was very friendly. Our first room had visible mold and was a smoking room. My husband and I used Expedia which the manager explained that when using this type to book, they just give first available. He said to make sure after yoi book, to call... More

This is NOT a luxury hotel by any means. It is an updated 1950s era motel. The original bathroom fixtures confirm that. Obviously it has been updated. New curtains, new A/C unit, new carpet, recently painted, etc. The furnishings were fine. Probably slightly used from another nicer hotel that had updated. Tube TV but it was fine. Our room had...

do not stay at this hotel. It was WAY over priced to begin with. We decided to do a weekend trip to Put-n-bay and didn't want an expensive hotel. The hotel was run down, old, and smelled bad. I checked the bed for bed bugs when we arrived in the room and I didn't see anything. The next morning when... More

Jagdish P, General Manager at Rodeway Inn South, responded to this review

In response to your claims, a complete inspection was done in that room, and there was absolutely no evidence to back up your claim. In addition, we have rented that room twice since that morning...and no other issues or complaints. Maybe you had a bug attached to your clothing from somewhere else, but I am 100% positive that you did... More
