An inexpensive room with a good bed; clean and outdated. Bathroom definitely needs renovating; tub missing the drain plug, very old tile and rusty ceiling. Plumbing shrieks when the neighboring room shower. Television was fine, staff friendly, microwave and refrigerator in the room. Parking by the door to the room.

Hotel flags are supposed to represent something in the way of quality and consistency in a brand, but Rodeway Inn, is an exception to that concept. For a Choice Hotel, this just doesn’t cut it.

If you’re going to compete with the big boys, you better be wearing big boy pants, and the only thing this hotel has going for it is that it’s located in a destination city. Other than that, they ought to lower their rates, surrender the Choice Hotel flag, and consider razing what’s there and starting over again.

This place is right out of the 1950s in design, and you’d probably expect that from a ma and pa place in “No-Place Ville”, Michigan. It broke my heart to have to pay $150 a night at this hotel after seeing the Holiday Inn Grand Haven on the water in Spring Lake… they were full and I had missed the better accommodations and competitive rate by some extremely bad timing.

A word about the proprietors of Rodeway; it appears to be family operated and to give them their due, they were lovely folks and very accommodating, only I couldn’t rid myself of the notion in my mind that they all should have been wearing masks, even the little ones…as in the kind of mask that bank robbers wear when they go to work. I know… that’s not very flattering, but I’m still stinging from the rates I forked over for my room… I can’t help it.

Okay, enough. I won’t get caught like this again.

This place was quite a disappointment. We paid over 150 dollars for one night to stay here and it just didn't seem like it was worth half of that. The rooms are shabby, the bathroom was clean but not appealing at all, the person behind the desk was not friendly and welcoming at all, and the bed was so uncomfortable that I woke up at 6 a.m. with a knot in my back. The free breakfast had few options and the room is about the size of a phone booth.
This was a busy weekend and there were a lot of people in town but I don't think I would ever stay here again.

DO NOT STAY HERE! My mother and I were planning on staying here On a Friday and Saturday night. We stayed Friday night and Saturday morning upon getting ready to head to the beach, I notices bugs all over the bed and pillows, come to find out those bugs were BED BUGS. For those who are unaware of what bed bugs are - they're nasty little bugs that are near imporrible to get rid of. We had to do our laundry at a laundromat and throw our luggage away.
they gave us some money back - but finding another hotel that weekend was close to impossible. just save yourself a mess and don't stay here.

Room Tip: def. not room 14 if you're crazy enough to attempt to stay here
