“Cockroach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2010

Good-sized cockroach greeted me when I entered. I either saw him three times or he got around the room. Room a little weathered. Breakfast bare minimum. Won't come back here.

We were pleased with our stay at this hotel , close to downtown Roanoke . The room was clean, quiet and the beds very comfortable. The desk staff was friendly and efficient and the continental breakfast was quite adequate. We had booked the room thru ARRP /expedia , it was a good value and exceeded our expectations.

Found this clean inn while passing through Roanoke from Blue Ridge Parkway. Room was nice size, very clean, and a very reasonable rate. Desk clerk was most helpful & allowed me to see the room first. Very happy with this stay.

I was looking for a cheep place to stay and found it. I cannot say the room was dirty, but it had not been updated for quite a long time. The best part about the stay was Thelma's Chicken and Waffles that shares the parking lot. That is what made the trip to Roanoke memorable.

While on the road we don't usually research the hotels we stop at so we didn't see any of these negative reviews. A gig in Roanoke brought us to the Rodeway Inn and it was just fine for us. Free WiFi, breakfast, safe parking, and a convenient location to central Roanoke. It was quiet and laid back, just how we like it! Also, there is a great family run restaurant right on property and after check-out we stopped in for some chicken and waffles, something that we don't have in Boston!

This place was NOT for me. It was dirty and the staff was rude. I asked for a non smoking room and was given a smoking room. The sheets had cigarette burns. The bathroom was disgusting, the shower was dirty and there were bugs in there. The little shampoo that they give you was half full. HALF FULL I don't want to use the previous person's left overs. There were dirty napkins on the floor. It was absolutely awful. I'll say it again this place was awful and the staff was extremely rude.

from England.
Luckily we were only there one night. The road next to the hotel was so busy. The staff did not care if you were there or not, barely bothering to greet you. The hotel is motel style with external rooms. Ours was on the ground floor, facing a building with vile fumes emitting from it. These fumes were even inside the room as we opened the door. This building turned out to be a car paint shop. Luckily when they stopped work, so did the fumes. The room was in a bad state of repair. There were holes in the wall, the bathroom was moudly and horrible and to make it worse, the tiles were lifting on the floor. If all that was not enough, my bed had a long black hair in it and it did not belong to me. Charming! The carpets were dirty and the dirt under the beds was better not looked at. Hoovers obviously don't go anywhere near that area.For the first time ever, we went to bed with a chair wedged against the door. We were ready to leave by 7am next morning and were pleased to leave the horrible place behind.
