We stayed in May and the outside of the hotel is nothing like the pictures is like 20 different colors it's ghetto looking. Some people at the front desk are less than pleasant. We had an extended stay due to unforeseen issues on our part. When we checked out the manager was beyond rude.

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn for one night during the week. The staff was very courteous, the room was clean and there were amenities like free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and a coffee machine and iron in the room. For the money, it was a good deal. Also, the Inn is on the edge of campus and bus stops, so... More

Arrived with my friends after a long day of travel. As we are from another country we were using travel money cards - our cards were not accepted by the receptionist because they don't have our names on them (no travel cards have names on them for privacy and security). This has never been a problem at any other hotel... More

Good things about this place: - satisfying breakfast - staff are friendly and helpful - near the university - lots of interesting restaurants nearby - wifi works alright My complaints are that the bed was uncomfortable -- there seemed to be insects in the bed, the bedding wasn't clean, the bathroom was rundown. I did come in during a football... More

While I will say that every staff member we encountered was very polite and helpful, and the wifi was free and speedy, the condition of the hotel and the location was pretty awful. We had a corner room that had a large wet puddle in front of the door, reasons unknown, the entire 5 days we were there. Every morning... More

For the price it's okay. Personally I wouldn't return but for cheap and easy access to Frank Erwin Center it's okay. Had to wait for the room to be cleaned when it should of been done upon arrival. Smoke free room that smelt like someone had been smoking in it how strong the smell was. AC was leaking water onto... More

A gang of us stayed here for 1 night during our road trip across America. The reverend working in reception was pleasant but that was about the only good aspect of this lodging. Advertising an outdoor pool in the photos? I'd advise removing them as it's false advertising, the pool looked like some sort of waste facility. We got a... More

I won't really get into how filthy this motel is, other than to say it is a total dump. The only reason I stayed here is because it is right next to the hospital that my dad just had surgery in. It does make my blood boil when someone tries to rip me off and that is what I take... More

This place was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were disgusting, the pool was even worse. The owners of the place double parked there luxury cars even though parking at the hotel is extremely limited. When their spaces that they preferred to double park in weren't available, they took the only handicapped space--These people are a... More
