“You get what you pay for”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The contractor hired by our landlord had an accident while attempting to fix a leaking pipe. It wasnt a pretty site and we needed to hire professional cleaners to clean up the blood so we had to be out of the house. My husband and I read some reviews online and saw that it was decent for the price. We got there around 8pm to check in and was nicely greeted. We payed and got our room key. We thought we would get a good nights sleep, but that didnt work out so well. First impression of the room, it smelled like a stuffy bag of old clothes. There were stains on the carpet, walls and there was a door that opened to the room next door. It felt like I was in a crackhead motel. We asked the front for a different room, which we got. At least this one smelled better. The bed was old and skweeky. Defenitely not a stay with kids. Paid $70 for a terrible experience and I would not recomment this hotel at all.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2010

My hubby and there stayed there for 3 weeks. There was a good weekly rate and the location is very centralised with the Galleria Tyler, and a few other big shops within easy walking distance. The staff are always pleasant and helpful.

The free breakfast is a little sad - but typical of motels anyway so quite expected for us - honey buns, instant oatmeal, orange juice, if you wake up early, you might be able to get sliced bread.

The room is bright and clean and the free internet quite consistent. Our stay was comfortable and quiet.

If you are at Riverside for your A&P lessons, I'll recommend staying here over the couple of much nearer, and older motels as this is much cleaner, better located, newer, and there is a direct bus to the Riverside airport which takes about 30 mins.

Stayed by myself for 2 nights on business for blacksmithing conf at Wahne's world. Clean rooms, very quite. Stayed in Room 129, which is along the block of rooms in the back, long way from any road noise and one story. Lots of resturants near by. "Breakfast" was pastries and toaster waffles, but I ate at the conferance so it did not matter. At $55 per night it was the best price aroune and took only 25 min to get to the conf.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

Staying at the Rodeway Inn in Riverside was, overall, a pleasant experience. You must realize that it is the lowest rate (weekly rate)in the area, as far as I could find anyway. They are also pet friendly and the extra fee is very reasonable. We needed a place for about 10 days while our RV was being repaired after an accident.
Pros: I found the room to be very clean and quiet. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The Galleria at Tyler mall is within walking distance. There is a mini fridge, microwave, hairdryer and iron in each room.
Cons: There was some interference with their wifi and we weren't able to use it . The jaccuzi was not heated, so didn't use it. The free breakfast in the a.m. is cereal, packaged rolls, fruit, milk and little muffins. Go early because they often are out of most things by 9:30. I saw a rat running up the side of the exterior onto the roof one evening when taking my dog out. This might be because Del Taco is next door. :-)
Overall, its a cheap sleep for a night or two, especially with a pet.

I was at this property while some work was being done on my home. The reason I stayed here was because of my participation in Best Western's frequent guest program and the proximity of the prpoerty to home/work. That being said, I probably wouldn't return.

The staff at the front desk were inconsistent - either very efficient or frenetic, disorganized, and not knowledgeable. There was very little in between. My room was clean and comfortable, though I was missing soap/shampoo on my first night. The exterior of the property is pretty run down. The vending unit appears as though it was plucked off of a scrap heap and not refurbished. If I didn't know anything about the area I would think that the area was a lot more dodgy than it actually is.

My biggest complaint is that I paid about $30 more a night than I would have paid at a similar mid-tier property down the street, but I can't say that the property was any better at all.

  • Liked — Room as a whole was quiet.
  • Disliked — Trashy exterior. Inconsistent service.
  • Tips/Secrets — I would only stay here again if the rate were competitive with local similar properties.
