Booked our room on choicehotels.com using my cousins friends & family discount (she is a Choice hotel employee in CA), then was told upon check-in that we couldn't use the discount and was forced to pay full price, so we could only afford to stay for 1 night instead of the 2 we had reserved. We then had to wait 45 minutes for the room so that they could clean it, despite the fact that we arrived nearly an hour after check-in started. Went shopping at Publix across the road for some food to keep in the room, fortunately we didn't buy many perishable items because our room had NO mini-fridge or microwave (the website said all rooms have both) and we had to use our ice bucket to keep the yogurt we bought cold. The TV buttons were all busted off, the bedspread had cigarette hole burns in it (I know we booked a smoking room, but come on...), the lobby was hotter than hell. The breakfast was actually tasty, but kind of slim pickins; muffins, toast, Raisin Bran (the only cereal offered), and a machine with apple/orange juices and coffee. Overall, I was VERY excited about a little getaway with my sweetie, and while we enjoyed the time together, the hotel was a huge disappointment. We will definitely NOT be staying here again and will never book in any Rodeway Inn!
