This was probably the worst hotel experience I've had since slumming hotels in college. I even upgraded to a king suite, which consisted on a king bedroom (bed wasn't too bad), but living room was only a desk and sofa, with creaky fake wood floors. Bathroom was small with mildew, rust, and no sink stopper. Could not turn hot water... More

Location of the hotel to the University Of Miami was great and then after that it all goes down hill. When we entered our room, we noticed a strong smell of mold with a carpet piece placed in the doorway over the rotten wood flooring. Within the first 30 minutes of being in the room, we reported a large drip... More

It takes A LOT for me to give a bad review of a Choice Hotel, especially a Rodeway since they are typically very low budget. Pros: This Rodeway is beautiful for a low budget hotel! It has a very Miami feel with the rooms surrounding a very clean courtyard pool. The design of the building is very pretty and much... More

Shuttle driver was great and helpful,even when helping cheap bastards that don't tip.

At first glance this hotel has a quaint appearance. But once in a room, it's an entirely different scene. Rooms are in desperate need of renovation. TV's some times do not work. No security with room doors, as I found my room door lacking an actual working lock. I do however, feel the new manager is on the right track... More
