I had a reservation actually for a suite...I hurt myself the morning of my stay and came to the hotel to check in early...since my room would have been upstairs I couldn't have it and asked them to give me what's available. They actually helped me with my luggage and walked me to my room...my room is lovely and spotless...recently... More

This place was exactly what I thought it would be for the price I payed we stayed a total of 2 nights and had 4 rooms which were very nice and spacious. The beds were incredible to sleep on and yes it was missing the coffee pot but I've always carried my own so that was not an issue. Both... More

We had a reservation for a handicap room but when we arrived our room, already paid for, was given to someone who decided to stay over. I was only told this when I called Choice Hotels when one of the supervisors in the reservation center called there. I was told by the desk clerk our reservation was NOT for a... More

Office smelled like Indian food when checked in & out. We were afraid to take a shower when ants were found in tub. No food was taken into room due to ants. When... More

We just needed a place to rest our head and this did the trick. It was the cheapest hotel in the area and thus did not have high expectations. We stayed in a 1 queen room and it was tiny, but it was clean. The room is old and the shower is challenging. The stream is extremely hard. It was... More

All I can say is you get what you pay for. We were looking for a cheap place to stay the night and found the Roadway. It's not a great place to stay, but for the location it is cheap. By looking at the place you can tell it was an old apartment complex that they turned into a motel.... More

This hotel (actually a motel) is far and away the most disgusting place I've ever stayed, and I was in a fraternity as well as a touring punk band. The fact that it has a two star rating pretty much strips the star system of any and all credibility. I could write a dissertation on the Rodeway Inn's flagrant disregard... More

Stayed at this hotel for less than 3 hrs and discovered bed bugs. The manager, Kevin, denied having bed bugs when I called him from the room. He said that "bed bugs don't just happen overnight" and asked "why are you just calling right now when you've been there all day?". I absolutely had not been there all day due... More

My room was clean and pretty comfortable. The problem was there was no WIFI for the entire 3 days I was there. I had to hot spot from my phone. The guy running the front desk was pretty defensive about and said that since I wasnt paying extra for it, I shouldnt except it. Then after he calmed down he... More

The shower knobs are cruddy looking like if there is some sort of mold on it or this room has not been used in a long time but i was told they had someone just yesterday. Was going... More
