This is by far the worst "hotel" I have ever stayed at. The people running it must live there on site because it always smelled of Indian cuisine, which is not a good thing. That along with the fact that the a/c is terrible just made for a disgusting aroma through out the motel. My room way very dated to... More

Worst stay ever! Poor management, hole in ceiling and wall, paint everywhere, no working television/cable, no high speed internet, room is fairly clean but feels kinda dirty, mirror that is supposed to be hanging on wall is leaning up against it on the floor instead! No conditioner only shampoo! No coffee mate or international delight coffee creamer, minimal updates done... More

This was an OK place to stay. Our room was clean. Not fancy, but not the worst place I've ever stayed, either. Truthfully, we were thankful to have found this this hotel after a long day of driving and no reservation. The front desk personnel were very nice and they had a good breakfast room. Next door to Papa Murphy's,... More

Sister wanted to use points for the room....dingy, felt dirty, bedspreads were pilled and sticky. Moved out the next day. Should have saved the points. Breakfast was waffles, cereal or bagels. Waffle makers were not clean. Staff was friendly but overall I would not stay there again.

Where to start? If you absolutely need to stay out of the rain this place will do. Granted the desk clerk was very pleasant but when she had to check a note pad to see what rooms had yet to be cleaned because they have been without a cleaning staff for 2 days I should have turned around and left...

It's filthy, the floors, the bathroom, the bedding, the common areas. Towel bars were torn off the bathroom wall & laying on the toilet with the towels. The shower enclosure was being held up with Duck Tape!! The place smells like smoke. The hallway had torn out old carpet piled up under the stairs instead of in the trash. Suspended... More

Definitely a basic hotel clearly in need of some cleaning and maintenance. If you just need a simple place to sleep it's ok i suppose for the price but I doubt that it even measures up to Rodeway Inn standards. The breakfast area looks like it doesnt get thoroughly cleaned very often and the eggs and sausage were horrid. Recommend... More

I never write reviews. However, after seeing my son literally chewed alive during a stay here I felt compelled to let others know to stay away. Even if they have sprayed for bed bugs, that only means the rooms are filled with pesticides. I strongly recommend you stay away from the Rodeway Inn in Baxter. I'll be sleeping in my... More
