“Avoid this hotel at all costs!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

I've stayed in many hotels and motels over the years, and this is in the bottom two. I stayed here for four nights while visiting my husband who is stationed at Fort Sam.

Pros: the woman who checked me in was initially very friendly, and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately, that's about it. The room was noisy (it's off of a main road), it's not in a very good part of town, the fridge REEKED of something and desperately needed to be cleaned, the sheets were not washed and had stains on them, the maids ignored the "Do Not Disturb" sign I put on the door handle, and the bathroom was horrible. It was small, dirty, and the water went through the fabric shower curtain...so much so that it leaked into the room below us, and the woman from the front desk came up and complained to us. WHAT?!?!? Are you kidding me? She tried to barge in to clean it up (there was water on the floor, but that's because the water goes through the shower curtain! She accused me of not knowing how to close a shower curtain...and suggested that I didn't have it inside of the tub.), but my husband was in the shower. It was incredibly awkward. Lastly, unless all you eat/drink for breakfast is coffee, there's nothing for you at the continental breakfast. At all. Seriously, splurge a little bit more and stayed near the Riverwalk area. It's worth EVERY penny. Do some price comparison, and you'll find that for around one hundred more you can stay at a much nicer hotel. Stay away from this place!!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2008

Where should I start?! When I walked into my NON SMOKING room the first thing I noticed was the heavy stench of old tobacco. The first thing I saw; multiple cigarette burns on the floral comforter. Not only did the comforter have obvious cigarette burns, the sheets had NOT been changed! The pillow coverings still had old mascara marks, tears, and pink lipstick marks on the sheets and pillows. The bathroom looked like a scene from a horror flick. The fixtures did not work properly. The door frame in the bathroom was splintered and the tile chipped. Luckily the towels were clean. There was an amazing selection of TV channels, too bad most did not work. The carpet was so dirty the bottoms of my feet turned dark brown. The hotel advertises "Free Internet"..HA! There wasn't a real internet connection until I went to the hotel next door. The complimentary continental breakfast was stale and made me sick the first morning. Trying to get some type of hospitality from the managers is like pulling teeth. It took 4 hours to have my sheets changed and bathtub cleaned. Rodeway Inn is an over priced dump not worth the effort! I do NOT recommend this hotel, even if you're desperate.
