“Easily the worst place I ever stayed at”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

The bath's drainage was clogged and you had to shower in a "pool"; we found a couple of bugs in the room and the overall feeling was of a sleazy motel. Even though it was cheap you can expect better than that, especially when just as you enter your room a guy walks into the room next to you with a working girl. Definitely won't come back to this chain.

This Rodeway Inn needs some work. Half the lights and the bathroom fan didn't work. There was cracked tile in the bathroom. The room was clean and close to the civic center. There was a pile of old mattresses by the garbage bins so maybe they are in the middle of an upgrade

Definitely not Shangra La but fairly priced and convenient intown location. Good inexpensive place to stay if visiting Roanoke on business. Only a couple of minutes from Roanoke's downtown areas. Staff members were polite and helpful.

Stayed here one night for a meeting at the convention center. True, it's a cheap motel, but I never felt my safety was at risk, and the staff was very friendly. Didn't have towels for some reason, but was able to get some quickly. Convenient to where I needed to be. I wouldn't stay here longer than a few nights, but for a quick in and out it was adequate.

This is the worst budget accommodation throughout our road trip, it is basically a dated motel; room was not pleasant and door was flimsy - might have issues with safety. Not recommended unless absolute necessary.

Being on a short trip and working on a budget the hotel was satisfactory. The guy at the desk was very nice and gave me a AAA discount. The room was decent, clean, had fresh towels and NO funny smells. It is NOT a $150 a night hotel, so don't come expecting mints on the pillows. But for the price, the people are friendly, the rooms are clean and it has everything you need for a night or two.

The rooms are cleaned daily (which usually isn't done on week stays but it is very nice to have) and everything is new and fresh. The whole staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast room was clean and the breakfast was fresh and kept stoked during the whole breakfast time. Breakfast is 6-9 M-F and 6-10 on weekends. They have danishes, muffins, 4 cereals, boiled eggs, white and wheat bread, apple juice, orange juice, and coffee. They keep coffee all the time and fresh. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.
