Reviewed February 23, 2014

one of the 2 most DESPICABLE hotels I have ever stayed in. The front desk was ABANDONED UPON CHECK IN. I had to use the lobby phone to finally get someone TO SHOW UP, AND THEN I WAS SCOLDED FOR DOING SO. THIS HOTEL IS DIRECTLY BETWEEN 2 STRIPPERS CLUBS. THE PLACE IS IN POOR REPAIR AND DISGUSTING. Our king non smoking room reeked of smoke the moment we opened the door. ALL FURNISHINGS/TV/ECT WERE VERY OUTDATED. Some of the windows were covered with a black film that was cracked & PEELING so that anyone could PEER DIRECTLY INTO THE ROOM. THIS HOTEL IS A "CHOICE HOTEL" brand that does not in any way live up to that brands standards. If it would not have been so late upon my check in I would have found another place to stay. AFTER REPORTING MY ISSUES to the front desk UPON CHECKOUT, NOTHING WAS DONE TO RESOLVE THE ISSUES. The sidewalk was poorly patched in several places, the elevator was filthy with trash and bugs. nasty. The heater woke us up every 30 MINUTES or more with its old, loud noise. DONT STAY here if safety is a concern.

We enjoyed our say at this motel. It is a three story motel with an elevator. Clean rooms and they were very spacious rooms. They had a microwave and refrigerator. Good value for the money. They had a breakfast of cereal, milk, juice, and coffee.

When i got to office asked for number to owner our someone over him he said no take plunger and get out asked again he said no and if you don't like it you can check out.

When I walked in I laid my ID and credit card on the counter, but the man at the desk was counting his money and kept up counting while I waited. It took awhile then he takes me cards and looks in the computer. He creates a new booking and gets it all ready and tells me the rate. I was already booked, as an award stay. He was so busy with his money he never said a thing to me. When he finds out its an award, he wants to argue with me as to why I gave him my credit card then! Most hotels even when free want a credit card just incase you call, use or order something, or just all around policy. Ive been traveling since before this guy was born! I dont need to argue over that! Had it not been past the cut off I just would have walked out and saved the points and gone elsewhere. This guy wouldnt be the type that could even hold down a minimum wage job at McD or WalMart! No customer service scruples at all.

I get the room. Its on the top floor. The whole place is run down badly. The room has a chair outside the window. Hmm? Guess people like to hang out outside. Smells better outside.
The room was rather large. It was a non smoking room but there were cigarette burns in the blanket. The sheets were clean though. The bed was ok too. The chair at the desk collapsed to the very bottom when you sat in it. An office type chair that had seen better days. The handle to adjust wasnt working any longer.

The TV was a Zenith from the 1990s. The toilet was loose and wobbled. If your used to the choice hotels little plastic shampoo, lotion and conditioner, always three...this one had one only.
One soap. Carpet was dirty. Overall not a very good place.

The building does have many living there. Yet Id say when I was there is was mostly vacant. Very low occupancy. The pool was open but I dont use it but looked ok. The spa was closed with that yellow tape put all around it to warn you to keep away!

I did hear people coming and going and talking at various times in the night but not terrible as some others mention in their reviews. Guess it depends on the night.

The sign on the street says breakfast weekly. ? Not seen that at a choice hotel before. Maybe its a reward for the live in people to keep them happy one time a week?? I dont know.

Overall if this is the same price as other options take the other option! If its way cheaper than the others and your on a budget, go for it! Remember off season in Florida most places are not full. This was May 2013 and no place anywhere I stayed in 8 days in a row, 8 diff choice hotels, seemed full at all. Many places--other chains and independents have specials on their boards. Remember if its not high season, YOU GOT CHOICES!

Room Tip: Id venture a guess there are no good rooms here.

My wife and I flew into St. Pete Clearwater and needed to stay one night and then move on. I used some points we had accumulated to get a free night. I still felt cheated. Nowhere on the web site did it mention the strip club next door as nearby attractions. The linens were stained, got interupted from sleep at 3:00 AM by a call from "Moochie". The staff seemed to care but the condition and location were too much to overcome. Never again at any Roadway Inn.

First off, when you see a strip club next door you know it's probably not the best hotel (not to mention locals saying not only is it a strip club but the most disgusting in the area). At some point it was probably okay but it's awful now. You only get a few towels no matter how many people are in a room. And don't even think of asking for more toilet paper. I came here with my aunt, her 2 little girls, and her best friend. 5 people. Couldn't get more than one roll. The maids didn't change the comforters when they "cleaned" the room and they obviously needed change as there was blood on one. And we're quite sure they stole some items from us.

From the moment we checked in until the moment we decided we had enough and found a different hotel police were there. Constantly. How many hotels need constant police surveillance??? Any women staying here can and most likely will be harassed by the police thinking she's a prostitute or a junkie because apparently both drugs and hookers just go with this "hotel".

Also, with the highway and construction going on right there, nothing is easily accessible leaving there.

Terrible doesn't even begin to describe it. Unless you're practically broke and/or homeless, DO NOT stay here.

P.S. The website for Rodeway Inn is clearly not updating their site picture anytime soon. It looks nowhere near as nice in person. It looks old and yellow now.

Room Tip: Want a good room? Find a different hotel.
