4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

I was directed to this motel by Comfort Inn next door as they did not have non smoking rooms. To my surprise our stay was real memorable. At $55 I got 1) free wi-fi 2) A indoor heated pool and hot tub 3) Free continental breakfast. And above all definitely clean and spotless room. The staff was eversmiling and also very courteous. We were very impressed with our stay. At $55 how much can you expect from a budget motel. Thanks to Comfort Inn for guiding me to the right place.A very nice place for the value and staff is gr8.

How to sum up this hotel - Repeat over and over This is a budget hotel. That being said how can you beat $44 a night for a roof over your head , hot shower and a small breakfast. Hopefully you like hard lumpy beds and pillows -.

We were unable to get any sleep due to those in room next to use, fighting, cursing, slamming doors. The police were called after the Manager was unable to handle the situation. The people then returned later by the unlocked, side door and pounded on our door. The full time manager was rude and disrespectful when I made an attempt to discuss the matter.

My family stayed at this motel on Thanksgiving day. The motel is defintely old but very neat and clean. The staff was courteous and very decent and helpful. The pool was fantastic. The breakfast was OK but being a budget motel you always have limited selection. The rooms looked in good shape and also very clean. i will definitely stay again and refer to my friends and family. Keep it up.

My family and I stayed at this Rodeway Inn to attend a famiy retreat nearby. Check-in was no problem whatsoever. The lady at the front desk was friendly and courteous. We were placed in a poolside room. The hotel is older, but that really didn't matter to us. The room was a bit dark, but everything worked properly. There was plenty of hot water in the shower and the pressure was fine.
We were not able to go into the pool, but it looked beautiful. The hottub was out of service at that time. The continental breakfast consisted of boxed waffles, packaged danishes, cereals, juice, coffee and tea. The breakfast area was not at all busy, and there was a television to watch.
I would definitely stay here again in the future.

I don't know what the other reviews were talking about but we had a great time at this Rodeway Inn. Check in was fast & friendly and the kids loved the pool. The hotel was clean and we had a room that went out into the pool (definately a plus).

My husband and I were attending a conferance in one of the meeting rooms for the weekend, and decided instead of driving home, to rent a room.
The conferance rooms, and the loby was okay so we figured the rooms would be okay too. WRONG!
First of all when we checked in at the desk, the older lady was rude and nasty and would much rather talk on the phone (personal not business) than answer or questions or even tell us where to find our room. We asked for a bottom level room, and instead we got a top room clear in the back of the hotel. She told us they didnt have any other rooms and this is all they had left. So we took our key cards and went searching for our room. We found it, after we walked down a hallway filled with smoke from the local contractors living in the motel. The smoke was not that of cigarettes either! We went into the room, and the sheets was dirty, bathroom tub was still dirty from previous user, and the large window overlooking the inside pool area was so dirty and streaked up you could barely look out it.
We said NO way we would stay in this room. We took our long walk back though the motel. On our way we checked out the indoor pool and hot tubs they list as open and clean. NO way was they clean or in good condition. The pool was scummy and had lots of brown alge in it, and the hot tub was just as if not worse than the pool. We also encountered a group of workers who really did live there in the motel cause they had bbq grills and beer and swearing about every word that came though their mouth. Most of the words toward me!
We got back to the front desk and told the lady what we found and she questioned to why we were so darn picky. We said can we please have another room, or we want our money back. We mentioned we wanted to be in the same general area as our friends. After over 5 minutes she finially gave us a downstairs room past the pool area. Right under the previoius room.

We took the room cause it was getting toward midnight and was so tired. Went to the room and found it in a little bit better condition except the bedspread had several holes due to cigarettes although it was a non smoking room, the smoke detector kept beeping. We called the front desk and they said they couldnt help it..to take the detector down and place it somewhere in the room. That thing beeped for several hours before it died. Glad the hotel never had a fire or we would have been in trouble. Again the windows was dirty. The neighbors who could not speek a bit of english kept banging on the walls, and yelling and talking. We made another call to the front desk. About 2:30 am we had to leave, cause it was just that bad. The police was called due to the fight next door and the motel didnt want to comp us in any way.

The Almost Home resturant in the motel is another story all together. Please don't eat here. Maybe the beer and liquor is okay but we were shooting pool the afteroon before we got the room and overheard the kitchen staff ( she had long hair and didnt even to care to tie it back, and looked like she hadent showered in a week) talking about serving 2 day old leftovers and was laughing about premade hamburger patties that sat out to long! Wow.

  • Liked — The location
  • Disliked — Wow..everything! Rude management - bad food- dirty rooms- and people who live there!
