We checked out a lot of hotels online and finally decided to try the Rodeway because of the price and location. When we called the hotel directly, they gave us an even better price than on the web and the $12 parking per day seemed unbelievable compared to the other hotels in the area. We weren't expecting much - just... More

Checked into this hotel and found our room was on a slope. Concerned about safety we called down and spoke to the lady on reception who offered to show us another room. Brian Krason came to the room and told us we could not move as we had unpacked. He told us the room was safe but did not want... More

FAKE REVIEW: As know you posted once and you removed your review once we responded. Showing up a at hotel in the state you did left us with no choice by to encourage you to stay someplace else. With stairs all around and other guests safety, as well as yourself, was paramount in my mind. I am surprised given your... More

What a great find in a great location in Philadelphia. I was there for July 4 and their rate was great. Do not let other Rodeway Inns appearance make you not stay here as I have seen some sketchy Rodeways. The staff was helpful, I was shocked when they went outside to hail us a cab. The room was clean... More

Location couldn't be better. Lots of great restaurants and walked to everything. Park across the street for $12 overnight. With that being said, worst night sleep we've had. We needed 2 queen beds with 2 adults and 2 children. They were overbooked and upgraded us to a suite. We thought that meant 2 queen bed suite...like maybe with a couch.... More

The Rodeway is within walking distance to everything! The hotel and the room itself was quite charming. My room had a refrigerator, microwave, kuerig coffee maker, iron and ironing board and a hairdryer. Wi-Fi was free. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice and quiet. They keep free fruit and infused water at the front desk for guests.... More

We chose this hotel because its location first; the parking at the front made it very convenient too. Room was impeccable (though a little small, but I guess that's what comes with such a classical old building), very clean and cozy with a nice bow-window facing the street. The AC was a little too high and, though I tried to... More

As I walked in from the street, I thought "oh, boy. I hope the rodents are clean at least." I entered and very much delighted, Though small, it was a great lobby and staffed by some of the nicest people at each shift. I walked into my room, and surprise 2! It was renovated, small and great, and very comfortable.... More

This hotel is very centrally located on a major shopping street within walking distance to all the major Philly attractions. As I don't have a car, it was ideal for my needs. As hotels go, it was decent and pretty well-equipped. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a little dated but perfectly functional. The... More

The hotel is in a perfect location. Right in downtown where all the action happens. The room was nice, clean and decorated in a modern design. The flavored water and fruit at the lobby desk is a personal touch. I will stay here the next time I travel.
