“An overnight in Carlisle, Pa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I recently drove from New Yok to Arizona and return, on the road for 26 days, and overnighting
in a total of 17 motels, all during the month of May. They varied in price from just under $50 to $200+ (Monument VAlley) per night. While we found it to be generally true that you get what you pay for, we found an amazing exception at the Rodeway Inn In Carlisle, Pa.

Having once been strongly disappointed at a "low-priced" motel in another town, I asked to see the room before checking in, and to my deliight, found the room to be beautifully decorated, clean, bright and roomy, and with no road sounds. We did check in, and had a wonderfully comfortable and quiet night. An added plus, having arrived there at about 8:00PM, and hungary, the manager told us of a first rate restaurant nearby that served late, and was still almost full of people when we arrived.The manager was very responsive to our needs and added to the pleasure of our stay

The continental breakfast was typical of others we had exerienced, adequate and OK.

So what made it such a good deal that I would take the time to write this? The room compared favorably with $100 rooms I had just experienced, (and with similar continental breakfasts) and was among the least expensive of my entire trip. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!.

Stayed here one night and it was a nightmare. In Carlisle for the Ford show, found this hotel on The the shows website. It is a standard overnight motel. Left our suit cases in the room and went to dinner, came back and tried to settle in for the night. The carpet was dirty, the batroom floor was dirty and there were dead bugs on the window ledge. Should have packed up and left but we were exhausted and stuck it out. Hardley slept waiting for creepy crawlers in the bed. Checked out in the morning and complained to the manager who was very appologetic and gave us a 50% refund. He said he could not keep housekeepers if he complained about their work. If I were him I would clean the rooms myself. Never again !!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont bother not a good choice. Sleep in your car.

Stayed at Rodeway Inn in Carlisle, PA in March. Front desk service was awesome and very polite. Price was standard rate. The room I stayed in on the other hand was a messy nightmare. Whoever was supposed to clean the room, simply didn't. There were chicken wings on the bed. The towels and wash cloths were dirty and wet on the floor. The bed sheets were dirty andnot changed from the previous renter(s). Simply put, the wait staff didn't do anything to the room. When I approached the desk clerk, he was very apologetic and immediately went and verified what I had told him. He was visibly upset about it and offered me another room. That aside, the previous times (numerous) I was there, even though clean, the rooms are all very dingy and old looking. The staff is admirable for what they obviously have to deal with, ie., owners unwilling or unable to upgrade to the 21st century compared to other Rodeway Inns around the country. Overall, cheap price, dingy rooms, great staff, but needs an upgrade badly. If you stay there, be very careful and check your room CAREFULLY.

It was last minute and I needed to find something for one night at a decent rate. So, Roadway Inn fit the bill. I didn't know know that this decision was one of the best decisions I have ever made!!!!

I have stayed at Marriott's, W Hotels, Wyndham's, etc. and maybe the Roadway doesn't have that beautiful exterior but the service was completely exceptional!!! The rooms are extremely clean.

Not only that, Brad, The Manager, was more than welcoming the moment I walked up to the front desk. He made sure that my stay was extremely comfortable. The staff also exuded his kindness and attentiveness.

Because of my experience, every time I visit Carlisle, I always stay with my family at Roadway Inn!!!!
