“Nice Remodel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2008

We usually stay across the street at the Comfort Inn. I decided to give the Rodeway a try this time since I knew that it had been recently refurbished. I didn't expect much after all I had stayed in an Econolodge a few years ago, nothing special real basic. Good for the price.

This hotel is located directly off of a freeway. There are some restaurants and fast food located nearby (next door and across the street).

I was very surprised by the marble or granite counter and window sill, the crown molding, the quiet room heater, new toilet & the furniture. The frig & microwave worked great.

The lack of a coffee maker was disconcerting but I was much happier with the frig and microwave.

The selection of channels on the TV was great!!! Better than what is available at the Comfort Inn across the street. Which is better that at some other hotels. (Believe it or not this is often a deciding factor in where we stay).

The guest (did you forget anything) package was unexpected. Almost as good as what you get at some resorts. I was sorry that I forgot and left mine.

I would suggest the hotel add a mattress pad (beds are a little too firm) and additional pillows (they were a bit flat).

For my one night stay I thought that it was a GREAT value for the money even without a pool.

I did not add any photos to this review because the ones on the hotels website are actually representative of the rooms.

Note: I found out from the manager later that coffee is available 24 hours in the little lobby. They have a coffee service available upon request that they will bring to your room and that they have began to change out the beds to a more plush model.

I initially expected a decent stay during the long weekend for an Affordable price, it turned out to be real cozy and grand. The Hotel is newly remodelled, excellently maintained, well furnished with all amenities and turns out to be 3 Star hotel standards.

As I have explained briefly in the Title Expect the treatment of 3Star hotel and pay Rodeway Inn price.

One thing worth mentioning apart from HBO cable, new Refrigerator, new Microwave, is wireless high Speed internet.

I recommend this hotel to all the people who cannot afford a 5 star hotel but would like that feel within your price range.

I stayed here for one night when I was visiting my daughter at college. Though the room was newly renovated, the part of town it is in is not that safe (lobby locked in early evening -- had to check in at an outside window) and as I was clicking through the TV channels, there was a graphic Porn channel that came up.

Don't stay here if you have children or you don't want to fill your mind with this. Even if you are trying to click quickly, you can't help but seeing trash. I've stayed at many hotels, and never had this happen before. I will not stay here again, even if it was reasonably priced and newly renovated.

What a great find, I had business in Downey and wanted to stay local. I was hesitant to stay in Norwalk, but decided to give the hotel a try based on its three star rating. When I pulled up I noticed the neighborhood was not the greatest, but the hotel was clean and kept well. Once inside my room I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and the furnitire was good quality, It was certainly better than most hotels I have stayed in that cost three times as much. The staff were very accomodating and promptly saw to all my requests. I will definitely be staying here again.

I booked this room at choice.com based on price. I didn't see any pictures of the place when I booked, so wasn’t sure what to expect. It was a great surprise when I saw the rooms. Very nice décor. Nicest I’ve seen in a Rodeway Inn, but I haven’t stayed at many.
Really a great room for the price. The bathroom was really nice too. Everything is new. Would recommend. They still had to finish some things. Only have of the sign out front was up and a banner was on the other side. The front desk guy said the installers broke it when they put it up. Oh and the Internet was pretty fast.
