“Older hotel, but suited my needs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2007

This is an older, single level inn. Some of the rooms are behind the office, the rest are across the street. Smallish rooms, but adequate for us, queen size beds were comfortable. Nice shower with excellent water pressure. Microwave in room, as well as a small fridge....a very small fridge, just big enough to keep a few drinks and some food for sandwiches in it.
Little, old air conditioner with seemingly no difference between 'low cool' to 'super cool' in air speed - it always kept up the same noise level, but WOW, didi it cool the room! 98 degrees outside and we considered more than a few times turning it off!!
Wireless internet was available, but only on the side where the office was, so having been across the street, I made quite a few trips over with my laptop. A little inconvenient.
Breakfast was free, but so basic even I was suprised. Donuts, a few pastries, coffee & juice. A toaster & some bread would have made a difference.
The room's window could also have done with a 'sheer' curtain - to allow the main blind to be pulled back, while still giving privacy.

Although the housekeeping was ok, it was the only real negative of our stay. Every day something was missed, alternate items on alternate days were either not cleaned properly, or not replaced.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2007

I was looking for a clean, inexpensive room in Hot Springs, SD for a quick overnight rest stop enroute to Mount Rushmore from Colorado Springs. I didn't want to spend over $100 just to show up late and leave early. The Rodeway Inn fit the bill perfectly. I wasn't sure what to expect since I'd never stayed in a RI before. I found this particular hotel room to be clean, average sized (which was fine for me), and quiet. The night attendant even started the air conditioning for me before I arrived so the room would be cool when I checked in (it was nearly 100 degrees that day). Hot Springs is a quaint town and this hotel is a good choice. I'd stay there again.

This is a nice and clean hotel. Comparing other accommodations in this area, the rate is reasonable. Free wireless internet is offered and speed is good. Microwave and refrigator are in room.

The free breakfast is just so-so.
