We booked this hotel from expedia for a "secret" hotel which is the cheapest. When I arrived, the place looked very run down. The non smoking room smelled of smoke & the comforter had cigarette burns in it. The room wasn't cleaned well. No bugs..but gross hair left on the bathroom floor. Old drill holes in the wall & marks... More

We were there by mistake. We were looking for a budget hotel on the web and we find that place. The photos doesn't reflect the reality. The only thing that Choice Hotels have to do with that place is to burn it to the ground. I'm ashamed that i stay there with my wife. The ceiling in the room is... More

This place is terrible. The first impression is accurate. Keep driving. The rooms are run down with stains on the carpet, old screw holes in the walls. Cigarette burns in the sheets, and tubs that do not drain. The staff does nothing to correct any problems that are reported, and the breakfast is mediocre at best. Nothing like other Choice... More

Pros: check in star was very friendly. Room was comfortable and clean. Cons: while clean, there was quite a bit of wear and tear. Carpet could use a good shampoo. Cracked tiles. Water pressure not the best. WiFi signal was horrible. The thing that made me drop from three to two stars was that two days in a row, maid... More

Because there was an event at the Univ. campus, all the other hotels were booked so got a room at the Rodeway. When you first pull into this place, it becomes quite apparent why the room was so much cheaper than the other hotels in the area. This hotel looks like the abandoned building beside it--sidewalks cracked and unswept, weeds... More

We came for one night only. The room has been partly refurbished. It was clean. The pool was closed probably for a long period. It's really close from the highway. So, for a one night stop it is a good choice. No breakfast offered but there's a Dunkin Donuts nearby. Not much more to say.

Least expensive hotel along I-95 in the area. Room was clean and comfortable. The room with the free breakfast had plenty of fresh things to eat. It ain't the Marriott but for the money you can't go wrong. Nice morning staff.
