“It is what it is (clean & safe but cheap & outdated)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

First off, if you are reading this then you are obviously looking for a cheap place to stay that is decent. This place is. I paid $106 on a Saturday night, so you know what to expect. Yes, the room was small ... yes, it needs an update and some freshening up.

But, all of the basics were in place. The bed was comfortable. Everything in the room worked. It had a mini fridge, a microwave, and an iron/ironing board in the room. (note: the hotel does NOT supply shampoo/toothpaste etc in the room ... only 2 mini bars of soap) ... The AC in the room worked very well, and was quiet. I didn't fear for my health/safety when I was there. So, as far as I am concerned it was money well spent.

I was working in Atlantic City on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. I needed a place to crash Saturday night and this place did the job. I stay in alot of hotels, and I have stayed in worse places than this.

I got back to the room around 2 am on Saturday and is was quiet/safe. Had no problem finding a parking spot.

The only complaint that I have is that they advertise wireless internet, and my laptop didn't pick up a signal. Not a big deal, but just pointing it out.

Also, as others have mentioned, there are 2 Rodeway Inns VERY close to each other. This is the 2nd Rodeway Inn that you will see if you are coming down Rt 30 East (White Horse Pike). It could be confusing to some (and there is a 3rd Rodeway Inn further down the road too ... odd).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

Stayed at the Rodeway Inn 547 White Horse Pike on the 12th and 13th of July, 2009.
it looks a bit rough but its really very nice when you get into your room.
Very clean, and comfortable bed, it has a fridge and microwave, with the air on you dont even hear the traffic out on RT 30 (white horse pike).

now for handicapped travelers you might think twice before staying here,, you have a walkin shower but no hand rails for the toilet,, thats a bit rough for those of us who need a bit of help getting up.

but other than that , its just fine and Sunday to Thursday you can on the website and get it for $40 plus tax.

i do recommend

Decent place to stay after a day of gambling. Beds are comfortable, plenty of hot water in the shower, TV with cable, even wireless internet! I would stay here again if I was planning to be in Atlantic City for a few days.

It's your typical on-the-highway motel that is quite cheap by today's standards (I was able to secure a three night stay from Sun-Weds. for ~$40 a night which included taxes from the official Choice Hotels website). The only cheaper alternative on the strip (it's basically an entire strip of crappy motels and a few hotels just outside the limits of Atlantic City) was for $14/night but it looked shady and the biggest draw according to their sign was king sized waterbeds. cough. Anyway...this motel wasn't anything special. I got the room I asked for when applied online...king sized bed and non-smoking. The shower wasn't very good as the hot water wasn't very hot nor was the stream very hard. They didn't have HBO as I thought they would...but an ok selection of basic cable. I didn't come here for the comforts of home though...I just needed a place to sleep after a long day's worth of gambling. The Rodeway Inn more than accomodated my needs for that and the air conditioning was ice cold (a relief from the late summer's heat). I suggest you bring some small bottles of shampoo that you've taken from other motel stays as this place didn't have any free shampoo items. Though it did have a micro/fridge unit (never got to use either tho).

Overall recommended for the ultra-basic needs (sleep) and not much else. I've stayed at much better places, but then again I've also stayed at much worse.
