“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Stopped here for a night as part of a cross-country trip with a total of 7 college students. Arrived pretty late, receptionist was okay, check-in process was a bit different...

There was a garbage smell outside the hotel and right outside the inner hallways they've got cigarette dumps so of course right outside the door and halfway into the hallway there was a lingering smoke smell, the rooms, however, were fine. Hotel rooms were fine, especially for the price, the only thing lacking was a bigger breakfast but the money saved on the rooms was enough to make up for that.

Not sure if I would stay here again, it's a solid choice if you need something good and cheap but I think next time we'll opt for the next step up.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

My Husband and 3 kids stayed here for 1 night. My husband had played in a football game nearby and we didn't want to drive back home soon after so we stayed here for the night. The room was clean and spacious! The kids loved the breakfast options and loaded up on everything. It was very affordable and I was extremely pleased by our experience especially the cleanliness of the hotel and room. We will definitely stay here again!!!

This hotel is our stop over spot in Bakersfield twice each year. It has always been very satisfactory. On this visit, it got even better. We usually stay at Comfort Inns while on the road but although the Rodeway Inn is a budget hotel in the Choice Hotels offerings, this particular Rodeway is now on par or exceeds most Comfort Inns with the exception of the breakfast offerings. The hotel is being nicely upgraded and now, the rooms feel modern and fresh. The breakfast choices, while better than the last time we visited are still very basic. We always feel welcome and comfortable coming here. There are a variety of restaurants located close by.

Great room. Clean, spacious, & comfortable. Fridge & microwave. Good bed. Room was very hot when we came in - no air circulating at all. Took a while to cool down. Breakfast okay. No protein. Not a big selection but enough to get us going. Would definitely stay again. Great stopover.

Our party consisted of my husband, daughter, grandson and me. We stayed here on our way to Yosemite NP. It is exactly what you would expect; clean, comfortable rooms with fridge and microwave. Breakfast was passable but I would have liked yogurt and waffles on the menu. Wifi was included and worked fine. I would stay again if passing by as it is good value for money.

I stayed at this hotel on a one night stopover. It's perfect for this. The rooms are reasonably comfortable but nothing luxurious. It's clean and well maintained. The free breakfast in the morning leaves a lot to be desired. It's not great quality of selection.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Stayed with parents and infant.

The room was clean (although my crawling infant revealed that the carpets need to be washed).

The beds were comfy.

There was some road noise and noise from adjoining rooms, but not too bad for a hotel in the middle of a town.

The pool and jacuzzi look like they are for show. I didn't fancy a swim!

I would stay here again as I think it represents value for money.
