“Dirty”
Reviewed July 28, 2008

I called the Choice Hotel main number to find a hotel along our route because we were very tired and needed somewhere to stay. We have done this many times and have had very good luck with this method. However, this time we were not so lucky. I made the reservation by phone and was told there was a non-smoking room available. When we arrived the clerk was not able to find our reservation and indicated that the door to the only non-smoking room may be broken. I had me walk around the building to check and it was indeed broken. Since there was not another hotel for a long way we decided to just take the smoking room with the door that actually locked. The room was hot and stinky. We turned on the air conditioning full blast and left the door open for a little while. The room cooled down slightly and we got used to the smell. However, the bathroom was disgusting. There was dust and dirt everywhere in the room. The tops of the furniture had a greasy film on it. When I told the clerk on check out he said it was furniture polish. I am pretty sure you should not use furniture polish on plastic, but I could be wrong. Thank goodness the room was cheap and the beds were comfortable enough and seemed clean. We just checked in, slept, and checked out as fast as possible.

We recently stayed at the Rodeway inn for only one night. We stayed there on a Sat. night, were doing a weekend at the Fla. Folk Festival. We found the motel to be clean and quite even though the road goes right outside the front door. The breakfast offered was just coffee, juice and pre-packaged pasteries. We checked in very late and the night clerk was very courteous and handled the paper work very quickly. We would stay there again considering the price was fair compared to other motels in Lake City.

Visa account numbers still imprinted on sales slip. Being a victim of id thief myself I feel that they should get up to date and have the number xxx'd out, like all other businesses do. This is just too much info with also having DL# and address available to these clerks. Also, bathroom was filthy. Shower curtain had mold growing on it and baseboards were rotten. Bedspread was dirty. Remote to TV was swapped out several times because it did not work. Never received one that worked and employees did not know how to fix it. Wireless network is too weak to work from rooms. Shouldn’t even say you have one or at least tell the customer it doesn’t work from rooms. On a good note, employees were nice but hotel is in terrible shape and pictures need to be updated to show it. Wished I'd taken photos for fellow travelers.

The Rodeway is a very nice little motel. The only improvement I did see was the quality of the towels. They do need to upgrade them. They are so thin its hard to dry a child much less an adult. Other than that is nice. Good location.
I stay there about once a month and everyone has been very pleasant.

My Mom and I were traveling on a tight budget. We booked a double room at this Rodeway via their website. The place isn't much to look at from the outside, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean, smelled nice, and it was comfy and quiet inside. Several restaurants are within a short distance; we walked across the street for dinner at Cracker Barrel. There aren't any amenities, no pool and really no lobby, just the office where there are donuts and coffee in the morning. The room did have clear basic cable service, a small fridge and a coffeemaker. For what we needed, which was just a good comfy place to stay the night, it was fine. The two staff people we dealt with were very pleasant too. With taxes the room came to $40. Not bad at all for that area. I would recommend this little motel to any traveler with similar needs and budget.
