“stay only if you cant find anything else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I needed a room for 2 days at the last minute and needed CHEAP...well I got it. Yes it was only $59.00 plus tax. Looks ok from the outside but halls and carpets are pretty dirty. Elevator has faded old pictures and scuffed walls. Walls are thin and doors slam loudly. Rooms are dark and just old. If you HAVE no other choice,stay in an emergency but if you have 30 more bucks go across the street.

Do not book this hotel unless you are desperate! It is cheap, but it's still not a good value. We booked a non-smoking room months in advance, but upon arrival found that we had a bad-smelling smoking room. I asked at the front desk and was told that "non-smoking is only a preference, and we only have smoking rooms right now." I would have checked out immediately, except that the whole city was booked for a big conference.

The mattresses were worn out, the pillows were thin, and the sheets and linens were old and stained. The towels were thin and hard. I didn't take my shoes off because the carpet was so old and stained.

The "free breakfast" consisted of generic white bread, one choice of cereal, and hot coffee which was served in a water pitcher.

Only good point: I did not get bitten by bed bugs!

This hotel is barely fit for human occupation. The room was terrible, everything smelled horribly and the breakfast was not edible. The breakfast was nothing but already-crushed up cereal and probably weeks old coffee. You should either renovate, demolish, or take it out of the Choice Hotel brand as it is bringing it down.

Had a horrible experience across the street at Motel 6 so we checked in here the next day.
It's old and shows it but it was clean, well equipped with refrigerator, coffee, elevator. Front desk people - all of them- were very pleasant and helpful. Nice breakfast room with some basic stuff like cereal, muffins, juice, etc.. Printed out boarding passes for us with a smile. We felt secure in having an inside entrance to our room as opposed to the motel type.
Stayed two nights and would do it again.
Legends bar and grill at the corner is very good and offers 10% off if you are a Rodeway guest.
Ate there 2 nights and loved it. More friendly people.

Room Tip: We prefer a second floor.

Ugh. This place is an absolute dump. Motel 6 is a palace compared to this place. I've stayed at the Motel 6 across the street and it's so much cleaner.
I made a reservation online and prepaid two nights; if not for their no-cancellation process I would've walked out right after walking in.
When I tried to open the back door into the corridor from the parking lot my key wouldn't work. I had to carry my luggage around to the front door. I asked the front desk guy if my key was defective when asking about the back door and he just said, unapologetically, "oh, there's a problem with the doors." Okay, got it... a known problem that they won't fix!
Next I walked down the hallway to find my room, appalled at the stained carpet and dreary lighting. It was obvious that this place hadn't seen paint or a steam cleaner in years.
Depression set in when I got to my room. The carpet is so stained that I didn't know if I wanted to walk barefoot in the room. There are horrendous stains on the carpet and the bedding.
I walked back down the dreary hall to find some drinking water...only to find that the Pepsi vending machine on my floor had no power.
No exaggeration...this hotel is a disaster. Stay somewhere else...anywhere else.

I have stayed here quite a few times and i have had a very pleasant experience everytime. There is a complimentary breakfast every morning,which is great when you're short on time! The staff is very friendly and always smiling, and the maid service staff all work very hard and rooms and hotel is always clean. If ever there are disturbances, they are taken care of quietly & quickly. The hotel is in an excellent location with many restaraunts, bars, music venues & convention center all within walking distance. I have felt very safe & comfortable there and will definitely return.
