“Expensive for what it is.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This motel was a basic but adequate motel. It was also the most expensive accommodation we stayed in in our 6 weeks touring Canada, but certainly not the best. We paid $152 for a double. Most other comparable motels were $80-$120, so this was way overpriced. The rooms was clean but nothing special. Breakfast for the price was very disappointing, basically just limited cereal, toast and bagels without enough room to sit.

Did an overnight here in August of 2012 enroute to the Downeast Maine area. Upon arriving, found the desk reception staff to be prompt, courteous, and nice. Though after getting to the assigned room, found it to be a smoking room (with the smoke smell quite evident) though the reservation was clearly made for a non-smoking room. Returning to the reception desk, a room change to a non-smoking room was asked for as this was originally reserved but was told no other non-smoking rooms were available. Sprayed the room up a bit with air freshener and the like, and got through the night. Other disappointments were that the bed cover and blankets were pock-marked quite a bit with cigarette/cigar burns and the shower curtain was much overdue for a changing (or at least a substantive cleaning).

Having done some price research in advance of the stay, found this lodging to be among the better priced in the area for an overnight, passing-through-the-area stay. Nonetheless, I would have expected better for the price that was paid.

We stayed here on our way home from a Canadian vacation. The Rodeway was renovated and clean with good service. A good value for our stay. Breakfast is included and was a standard continental style breakfast - waffles, muffins, cereal, coffee and juice.

The first "non-smoking" room I was put in was anything but, the stale smokey room actually made me sick. How this could be labeled as a non-smoking room was beyond me. The next room I was put in still smelled of smoke but better than the first BUTwas not clean by any means. The bottom of the fridge was dirty with a half empty soda bottle in it. The sheets on the bed were dirty. A greasy substance was smeared on the desk and there was used soap in the shower. No way these things could be missed if this room was even attempted to be cleaned. I travel a lot and tend to be pretty laid back about a little dirt here and there but this room was just plain gross!

Management was rude, The fauset of the sink stay open half run, we call and after the manager come to try to fix it, finally without hot water we can use it.
The thermostat was out of order , at 68-70°F, we left for dinner when we come back
it was about 90° ,i said 90° is not an error. No bedspread on the second bed. Now the breakfast , no bread, two english muffins all wet (Previously freese). Cold coffe. So, like the other review, spend the extra twenty bucks and go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Read the review before going there. It will help you.

The room was expected for the price.

The first "non-smoking" room was obviously a smoking room. There was a cigarette butt outside of the room. They did move us to another room that was really "non-smoking."

There was about 5" of snow when we arrived (3PM) and the parking lot had not been plowed. We got stuck trying to park our car, so we borrowed their shovel to get ourselves unstuck and shovel out a parking spot.

The next morning (around 9AM) when we tried to leave, the lot had still not been plowed so we had to try and ram our car through the snow bank to get to the street. We got stuck in full view of the hotel dining room. As my husband shoveled us out again, I called the hotel to ask if they were planning to plow. They told me twice that they had called the plow and then hung up on me.

Spend the extra twenty bucks and go somewhere else, this place is gross and dirty and the management/owners are as rude as can be.
Upon initial inspection the room looked clean enough, but as we climbed into bed we realized the bed was full of hairs--clearly they had not even washed the sheets. The only other people that checked in (we were there in the off season) were put right next to us, and they were nasty, grimy old druggie types who had a cab come and drop off more nasty, grimy old druggie types at 1am. They were up all night swearing and, one can only assume, doing meth or something of that nature. When we told the owner at the front desk about the hairs he was dismissive and told us we should have checked the bed to make sure it was clean before commiting to stay. Then he told me it was not his problem, but mine. So, yeah...spend the extra twenty bucks.
