The reason the reviews are so opposite is because it depends on what type of person you are. If you are looking for just a clean place to stay and don't care this is an old motor Inn, this is the place for you. If you can't stand someplace that looks old, this is not the place for you. The... More

The Rodeway Inn is about a 15-20 minute walk downtown, You probably won't find anything cheaper closer to downtown. The rooms are fine & beds comfortable. The motel is Situated next to Lulu's Bakery & Cafe which has some great food & you may have seen this featured on Man v Food.

Do not stay here! A suite We booked a suite on the phone with Choice Hotels as Choice privileges Elite Gold member. When we arrived it was quite warm so we turned on the air conditioner in both rooms of the suite. The room smelled musty but we thought the air conditioner would take care of that. Beautiful San Antonio... More

When I saw this motel online I was sceptical, how could it be situated so close to all the main attractions of San Antonio and yet be so cheap? I booked one night to check it out and ended up booking 10 nights I had booked the lowest priced king sized room and when I asked to extend was told... More

We chose this motel because the price was ok and not too far from the river walk which is only 15 minutes by walk from the motel. Room not clean enough when we arrived. Bathtub did not work but they fixed it quickly. We were gone from 9am to 5pm and only the garbage was gone, but they also took... More

Coming from Las Vegas the MECCA hospitality/hotel industry of the WORLD we were extremely disappointed! When we opened the room a horrendous aroma creaked out of the room and back slapped us. The bathroom smelled like TERRIBLE urine mixed with the odor the hotel already contained. The bathtub had cracks everywhere and made us feel uncomfortable to shower. The shower... More

The Rodeway inn in San Antonio on North main sits just beneath the upper and lower deck on I-35. The hotel is reasonably soundproof but if you'd like to sleep bring a sound machine or some kind of cover up noise. The beds needed replacement when Eisenhower was in office. They are saggy, noisy and worn out. The towels were... More

CAREFUL this is a robbery!!!.....this hotel already knows how to scam people out of their money with little effort. Placing fake, nice pictures of the rooms on the internet to convince people to rent them, but they already know that people are going to run in terror out of the hotel the same day they arrive, and by having the...

Pro - soft beds - ok location close to river - clean towels every day - free local calls - swimmingpool Con - dirty - worn out - next to highway: lots of noise This place just passes. It's ok if you don't have any better option. Would not recommend it though.

First the location is rather sketchy and scary particularly at night we checked in at 3 am after a recommendation that the property was budget friendly and close to the venue I was booked at. Bathroom was covered in feces. Bathtub was cracked. Holes in carpet. Mold in air conditioner. Door did not close fully nor lock securely. Bed linen... More
