“Comfortable stop-over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We recently stayed here prior to a cruise. It's an older hotel, but clean, renovated and comfortable - quiet with comfortable beds. Very convenient shuttle picked us up at the airport - nice driver. Had a good sports bar onsite that was open late for food & drinks. Really nice breakfast room with lots of food options. Also had a little shop for things you might have forgotten - sunscreen, hats, snacks. Nice place - friendly, helpful staff.

We stayed overnight here prior to our cruise. We hadn't been to Florida before, but the staff made it easy. They picked us right up at the air port about 25 minutes after we called and the driver gave us a brief history of the town. The hotel was clean and welcoming. It had a little shop for nick nacks and last minute items you may need for your trip. They have a well groomed outdoor landscape and pool. The breakfast was filling. The best part was a 10 minute ride up to the port-all complimentary. For the price of staying here, we will definitely be coming back through for our next cruise. And by the way- thanks for the tip about the warm melting chocolate cake- it was my favorite dessert on my cruise!

Staff was nice, helpful. We had time to kill before a later flight, we were told about a near by shopping center with a Dave and Busters, movie theater, etc. Good way to spend the afternoon. A shuttle was arranged (for a fee), we were dropped off/picked up timely/dependable. Didn't spend much time in the room but it seemed clean, everything you need. Beds were comfy. Nice little gift shop, good prices. Would be a good one night pre-cruise stay.

The only thing good I can say about Rodeway Inn is that the rooms were cleaner than the place looks on the outside. Having being assigned rooms in the back on the second floor with no elevators made the experience something I wish to forget. As we walked out of our rooms we were greeted by a semi parking lot where at least one of them was running all night. Our friends' room was the worst with a door that wouldn't lock and an AC unit that just blew air up into the curtain. When they informed the staff that the door wouldn't lock they didn't send someone to fix it but told us how we could fix it ourselves by reprogramming it.

Another noteworthy problem would be the pickup service that made us feel a bit uncomfortable because of how long others had been waiting and we were picked up first because of airport location. When we arrived at the motel the check-in people gave me instructions for the following day's cruise ship transport that turned out to be wrong.

Finally, the free breakfast needed to be free since the food was bland with a side of terrible staff. My advice, stay somewhere else for a few bucks more and stay clear of Rodeway Inn.

Room Tip: Settle for nothing short of interior pool view on the first floor.

We arrived late due to a very delayed flight. I know reviews have varied in report on staff, but we had a great experience. Despite the late hour they still sent a shuttle for us. Then, feeling sorry for us at the front desk, they gave us a bigger room (no charge). The breakfast was good and the staff was kind and had a cheery 'good morning'. Our room was nice and like the newer flat-screen tv.
The gift shop and liquor options were convenient and not overpriced. The pool and grounds were well kept. Its not in an area with a lot to walk to but for what it is (a stopover)-- its clean and a good value.

I was move to this hotel it was great for the value . The room was clean restaurant was fine Mgt was great. I had little problems with check in but was quickly resolved through Mgt who was willing to listen. The water was good and hot beds sleep fine. The only thing that I did not like was the shuttle was free from the airport but if you want to go right up the street you had to pay five dollars a person that was to little tic key. Now was not talk about taking me to beach, but to the grocery store that was two min away. Now beside all that I would stay aging it was fine.

We booked this pre cruise because of reviews and special AAA price, We arrived about 8 a.m. and were very tired after our red eye flight. The gal at the desk said our room would be ready within the hour and gave us tickets to eat breakfast. Had coffee, juice and waffles made in the self serve machine. When we approached the desk again the clerk told us that our room would not be ready until after 11 checkout time, maybe noon, When I inquired further a room magically appeared for $25 more. We took it and went to sleep. We were awakened later by a very loud mowing machine just outside of our room that went on for hours. So much for sleep. The place is out in the middle of nowhere and nothing nearby. We did eat dinner in the sports bar and it was okay. The free shuttle to the cruise ship went smoothly and we appreciated that. Nice gift shop and pretty courtyard that has seen better days. Would we stay again? No. Our bill was $40 over the stated price on our credit card.

Room Tip: Good luck finding one
