Keep in mind this is an economy hotel. It was clean and comfortable. Free bottled water was provided in the room along with a free daily newspaper. It did not provide breakfast, but a good cafe was less than two blocks away that provided an good inexpensive breakfast. The staff was very helpful and courteous. My room was at the... More

I stayed at the Rodeway Inn for a night a few weeks ago on a Sunday night. I paid about $100 total for a small bedroom, which included complimentary coffee, a large screen tv, and free wifi (although I never used it). The room was cozy and would definitely be tight for more than 2 people, but was perfect for... More

The hotel is small but very nice. It's in the center city near all for 1-2 days is the place to be. If like a lot of space don't come here you will not like it. The staff was is great. Hope this helps.

While this hotel is a bit worn insofar as the hallways and elevator are concerned, we were extremely pleased with our room and with the way we were treated, both upon arrival and when leaving. Our room was clean, well-appointed, and very comfortable (tip: if you want the room temperature adjusted, call the front desk...we should have done that...but we... More

We stayed in two rooms this past weekend and had a great time! The rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. I was concerned about the brand name but this wasn't like any other roadway inn I've seen. It looks newly renovated and trendy. I would definitely recommend this to my friends in the future. We will absolutely choose... More

Worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. The room I had faced the street, and there just happened to be very loud people celebrating until almost 4am outside, right below my window. I found it very hard to sleep because of all the noise outside my window. When I did (finally) fall asleep at 2:30am, the fire alarm... More

Thanks for the review. To clarify, as you know, you were going on and on yesterday about your experience and after 5 minutes of asking you to hold I did say "gripping to me isn't going to do any good, but the manager may be able to help" so you hung up. I apologize again for your experience. The LGBT... More

This hotel struck me as a renovated town home - very narrow, and not up to present day building codes. The elevator was tiny, as were the hallways and the rooms weren't too spacious either. A few things struck me immediately about our room: 1. No individual thermostats. If you had a problem with the temperature, you had to call... More

Super location within walking distance of restaurants, bars, shops, markets, subway, and historical sights. Half price ($12/day) parking in the garage across the street. Very clean. Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, newly updated bath with shower and plenty of hot water, fridge - not minibar - microwave and Keurig coffeemaker, great wifi. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Spent a week at the Roadway Inn downtown Philadelphia at the beginning of June. It was my first time in Philadelphia and have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the location of this Inn ...
