We needed a room to stay during the Newport Jazz Festival. Initially we had planned to stay with friends, but plans fell through and I had to look for a room. One of the only places with a vacancy was this Rodeway Inn and now I know why. At $152 a night (jacked up for fesitval weekend, I'm sure) I expected the room to at least be clean. The room was very small and jammed with old, beat up furniture. The two of us kept bumping into each other! No flat screen TV (as stated on the website), it was a huge monster of a TV on a huge cabinet that took up 1/4 of the room. The cabinet was so dusty I wrote "dust me" on top with my finger. It was angled in a corner and the space behind it hasn't seen a dust rag or vacuum in ages. I took pictures, but they didn't come out well enough to post. The sheets were not only thin enough that you could see through them, they didn't fit the bed! We were on the second floor, room 217, and apparently at the bottom of the steps leading up to our room is a smoker's gathering place - littered with cigarette butts and beer cans. We had 2 sets of towels when we checked in, We try to be "green" when possible, so we hung our towels on the rack to dry, intending to use them again. The next day, the cleaning staff removed the towels and never left clean ones -- I had to go down to the desk to get clean towels. We were booked for 3 nights and unfortunately there was just no other place to go, or I would have. Truly a shame, as it is in a great location for visiting Newport.
