I picked this one fairly late; I've had good experiences at Rodeway in the past, and thought that this one would probably be a bargain over others in the area. I checked in just after 10pm, and got a "late-night" ten-dollar discount. With that discount, total price was right around $65- still a relative bargain.
The motel must have been nearly full- they gave me the deluxe suite right over the lobby; probably the biggest and nicest room I've stayed in quite a while. I did find out the hard way that light switches sometimes power off whole outlets- but that was my fault for not verifying the device charges.
I'm not sure what the other rooms were like, but this one was very nice- everything you would want, plus big and roomy with a nice TV. Wi-fi connection was fast and strong, and I was able to get everything done. Everything was clean and quiet, and I got a good night's sleep.
This motel is right in the "main" district with a couple of nearby malls and shopping centers, so you'll find just about any type of restaurant nearby. Most of the nearby hotels tend to be the much higher-priced ones, so there isn't much competition for the low-end motels; I didn't try the nearby Super 8. I found out the next morning, that there is yet another shopping/motel area on the next exit going West, with a Motel 6 and an Econo Lodge; if you're traveling on a tight budget, you might want to check those motels first. If those don't work out, this Rodeway and Super 8 would probably be the next-tier up to check.
I usually eat breakfast elsewhere, so I can't comment on that.
