My wife and I usually travel with a travel trailer but this trip was an emergency so we had to leave the travel trailer in Florida and make a quick trip to upstate New York. Along the way we stopped for the night at the Rodeway Inn in Christiansburg VA on I-81 at exit 118-C.
The desk clerk told me to only turn the heat on low because the high setting sucked in cold air from outside.
When my wife made the reservation, she was promised a microwave which was not in the room. There was no water in the kitchenette sink, the night latch on the door was broken and not usable, no coffee maker, no Kleenex, and there was an empty K-Y Jelly box in the dresser drawer.
The room key card had a piece of tape with the room number on it so if by chance you dropped it in the parking lot anyone could pick it up and have your room number.
We should have been alarmed when we saw there was only one other vehicle in the parking lot. The clerk was pleasant and the room reasonably clean even though some of the bathroom moulding was missing and a dog had scraped up up the door. It is a pet friendly hotel with a $10 up charge. There wasn't much space to walk the dog and there was trash and debris all over.
Rodeway needs to check this place out.
