I spent a night at the Rodeway Inn in August 2015. It was better than I expected considering how little I paid and I'd go there again if I needed a place to stay. It is behind other, taller hotels and there is really no ocean view but it is right on the ocean. Check in was fast and friendly.... More

Couldn't even make it 10 minutes. Booked through Choice who told me this was a nice place. Read all the reviews but listened to the ones that said aim low and you'll be ok... I'm not a snob so I figured I'd be ok. The gentleman behind the desk was a nice guy so I thought it was going to... More

Upon inspection of the room you were booked for after you chose to leave there was no dust or dirt in the vent in the bathroom. Choice hotels never called us to advise us of any complaints. Our hallways are exterior and we are located on the beach. Our hallways are not enclosed. Our elevator has passed state inspection and... More

This hotel was booked over the phone. We were told this was a nice place and that our room would be oceanfront. When we arrived the outside was in much need of repair and paint. We decided to check everything out beforehand. Our room was not oceanfront. Our view was of the hotel next door with a wall at the... More

Not sure who you booked the reservation through. There is a lot of confusion. The hotel is oceanfront. We have only 24 rooms that face the ocean. Not sure who advised you that your room would be oceanview. We have 75 rooms and only 24 rooms are oceanview with balconies.I apologize for any miscommunication.

The hotel turned off the water during our second day there, causing our 6 year old son to be unable to take a shower after a day out in the 100+ degree weather. One of the days we were there, i was in the room with my 9 month old son who was sleeping, and the hotel sounded as though... More

We had to turn the water off due to a pipe broke under the concrete. We apologize for the inconvience. It was not brought to my attention that you wanted to be compensated. The water was turned back on as soon as it was repaired. Again, we apologize. More

Check your expectations, after reading some of the older, negative reviews, I called the staff and asked them questions. Upon being told "I would have my family stay here.", I was sold. If you are looking for a 5-star hotel with all the amenities, this is not the place for you, pay several hundred dollars more a night and go... More

I knew what I was getting into when I booked this but for the price point and location I took a chance. First of all its right on the beach. That's good. Free wifi which worked well. And I got upgraded to ocean front room. Now for the bad. Desperately needs a top to bottom makeover. One slow elevator that... More

OK a lot of the reviews seem to expect much more than price point would indicate. There is nothing here to wow you except the beach which is, more than likely, the reason you are coming here. The room is super efficient meaning there is no unused open space. It's dated. But really are you sitting in your room? Why... More

I'll start with the good, well just the ok. Ocean front room, easy access to the beach and a clean pool. The staff was friendly and helpful , except when I tried to call office at midnight and complain about screaming kids in the pool, no one was around.

Stayed here for three nights for a 'mini vacation' with my family. I am a front desk agent for Choice Hotels at another property (located in PA), so I took special care to read the reviews for this hotel before booking it online. The good reviews and bad reviews are about 50/50 so I gave this hotel a chance and... More

My wife and I "ran away from home" for a weekend. The Rodeway Inn is an aged hotel on the ocean, but it wasn't nasty. Our room was clean, the air conditioner worked great and the shower was refreshing. The desk staff was wonderful. The night guy, Micheal, gave up his parking space for us every night. He has an...
