“welcome stop in the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We needed somewhere to stop overnight on the drive through the desert and chose this motel based on other reviews. It is a cut above the average, basic motel. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped and provided a comfortable night. We did not use the pool but many travellers would welcome it. The motel is on the edge of town so there are few facilities close by. The diner next to the motel was nothing special at all but provided adequate food with a 15% discount for residents at the motel. One major plus for staying at this motel was that, unlike most places where you get a very frugal basic breakfast in cramped conditions, this motel gave you a complimentary full breakfast at the diner. Unfortunately the diner doesn't open until 7 am and we had to be away by 8 am so we couldn't take full advantage of this arrangement! It was our last night in the States and this motel left us with a good impression, it was exactly the standard one would look for in a basic motel at a reasonable price.

We stayed here two nights, and this hotel is worth what they charge. It's pretty basic looking, but very clean, and the rooms have amenities that alot of other places that charge more don't have. The rooms have fridges, microwaves, ironing board & iron, & small 4 cup coffee pot. The bedspread wasn't frayed, faded, or worn out like some places I've seen. It was quiet while we were here, and spent alot of time in the pool. The pool was very clean, wasn't over chlorinated, and the spa was just right! The owners of this hotel also own the restaraunt next door, and they give you a card to choose 5 HOT cooked items for breakfast. Soooo much better than the dried out donuts, stale cereal, & packaged sugary items that other places give you for their continental breakfast. They also give you a 15% coupon off for any other meals you may want there. The owners are down to earth & very friendly. This is a comfortable place to stay. The photos other travelers put on here, along with the professional pics pretty much look exactly like it is here.

The wife and I stayed here on the fourth night of our "mother of all road trips" which took us through southern California, Arizona, Utah. Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, and ending up in San Francisco. The Rodeway Inn in Blythe provided us with a clean, quiet stopover enroute to Sedona. The bonus for staying here is the complimentary hot breakfast at the restaurant next door which is also managed by the hotel. The pool is great for a morning swim before hitting the road.

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet, clean room.

Air conditioner is loud and must run all night, which makes it difficult to sleep. But...hey, it's in the desert, so thank god it had AC, we needed it. Owner was friendly and helpful, seemed to like his job. I also noticed that he kindly put all guests a couple rooms apart, since the motel was not full at the time. The adjoining restaurant has great food. We'll stay there again on the way back through Blythe.

We were driving back from Tuscon to the Bay area, and we decided to make a pit stop in Blythe, CA. After scoping some quick prices and reviews via our iphone, we decided to roll the dice on the Roadway Inn, clocking in at $62.99 for the night.

Upon check-in, we were greeted with the same kind woman we talked to on the phone. When we entered the room, it was spotless with full amenities: refrigerator, cable, microwave, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, couch, desk, coffee table, wireless internet and all those cute soaps and shampoos. The place was really clean, and had a wonderful ambiance.

We stay in a lot of hotels, and this was such a nice, homey place that we ended up staying an extra day and worked from the hotel. The hot tub was great, and we spent a load of time in it.

if you are looking for something flashy or high-end, this is not the place for you. This is a clean, simple, family-run establishment. It was a relaxing getaway, and I would gladly stay here again, and we plan to.

I don't want to forget, they offer free breakfast at the restaurant next door as well as a standing 15% off offer to all the guests of the hotel.

While the hotel was clean enough but old, the hotel clerk was very unfriendly. No thanks, no greeting - nothing. I had to ask about breakfast. There was absolutely no discussion; not even directions to the room. I was going to tell the am clerk but it was THE SAME PERSON!

The motel is on the edge of town and looks a bit scary by night, but by day, it's fine, really. Our room was large, clean and had a coffee maker, fridge, mircowave and flat screen tv. There was free wi-fi but I didn't use it. We had the accessible room and the bathroom was large and had one of those showers that a wheelchair can roll into. The building is one story and you park in front of your room. There's a restaurant between this motel and the Day's Inn and you get a voucher for a free breakfast there. We had eggs, sausage (real sausage, those thick white ones) french bread or pancakes, fruit and a huge glass of cold milk. Yummie. That's a great deal for $80. The motel is fine; it's just that small desert towns just have that...je ne sais quoi.

Wait, there was one odd thing--the pillows were unusually hard but I slept well anyway.
