Unfortunately, I booked this place online before leaving home, as we were touring NM, Ut and Co, so needed a departure point for our tour into Monument Valley. We booked via Booking.com and it now appears that they only list moderate or favourable reports, so the moral is to trust TA for its members honest reports.
We have stayed in many places, and as a Top Contributor, I reported on most, but this is our first experience in such a dump as this.
We arrived at about 5pm and there were a number of vehicles in the car park, so we thought the place had a number of guests.<1>
The receptionist / manageress? advised us on which floor to take a room <2>
As we got to our room, a young man was working from a trolley, servicing rooms. Why at 5pm? I tried to speak to him but his English was nil <3>
A little later, I went downstairs looking for coffee, and noticed that many of the vehicles had gone <4>
Points 1 to 4 did not gel with me until I was in the little dining room and was propositioned by a resident hooker and invited to her room for !!! I refused and went back to our room.
All during the evening and night, vehicles arrived and departed, doors opened and closed, so we did not get much sleep. On a couple of sleepless occasions, my wife looked out and observed the people concerned.
When we discussed the situation, we realised that it appeared to being used as a "knocking shop". The place is smelly, run down, dirty carpets, and also seems to house people with nowhere else to live.
The room was barely acceptable, the bathroom horrible so we did not even risk a shower. The breakfast was deluxe crap and even worse drinks, so we left asap too embarrassed to question the receptionist about their "clients".
During the rest of our tour, we avoided all other Rodeways, as this one certainly influenced our opinion of their premises.
We do not recommend this place and advise you to avoid it!
