“Wonderful Motel!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Yes, it was great. The place is made for those that are not looking for the big amenities of the hotels nearby. Negative for some would be no pool, but it's in front of mission bay, so why would you need it. Fridge and microwave were clean and working, so if needed, you can economize with food on your trip.

The bed and pillows were comfortable and clean, bathroom and towels were very clean, flat screen (32 inch set) had a great selection of channels and had clear reception, wifi worked fine on IPad, nice room setup for a small queen room, continental breakfast was fine, but no bananas, which would have been great, but they had other fruit. Look in their fridge for the hard boiled eggs, milk, juice and yogurt. They had frozen waffles, bagels and toast, as well as oatmeal packs and cereal. Enough for most folks to have a great lunch somewhere in this beautiful city.

Place was full on a weekday, so parking was tight, but we found a spot late that night. Very friendly and courteous staff, including the housekeeping folks.

We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street if street noise bothers you. Arrive early so that you have some...

We stayed here for a week and a half while enjoying the area attractions and Comic-Con. It was easy to access the interstate and the public transit system. Our stay was enjoyable and the staff was very helpful in finding things to do and places to eat that were not necessarily chains, etc. We would highly recommend this place to stay.

We took a 3 day trip to San Diego last December (2011) and stayed at this Rodway Inn at 4345 Mission Bay Drive. Comparing this to other similarly priced motels/hotels, this had the best reviews.

Specifics:
It's a 2 story and single level type motel/inn where you can park in front of your room. They also accept small pets for a reasonable surcharge. Nice, clean room (no bedbugs...I checked) with cable, AC, fridge and microwave. Free WiFi is always good. Their free breakfast is bare-bones but again, it's free. All I need is some coffee, cereal, a banana, some juice and a struedel to go. Front desk people were nice.

Closest eatery is a Rubio's which is 2 blocks north on the west side of the street. 7-Eleven is on the same side as the Rodeway, also 2 blocks up. Directly to the west of the Rodeway is a limo service (no boundaries). Across the street is a golf course. Directly east and south there are appartments. Directly north is a Nissan dealer. So basically, you're in between a residential and commercial area. Northbound 5frwy exit merges with Mission Bay Drive just south of the hotel. Marina is about a mile south.

Great place if you plan on seeing various spots in SD but don't want to spend more than a $100 a night on lodging.

We lived down the street from the Rodeway Inn and stayed while we were in the process of moving out of our house, so not a vacation, but a place to hang our hats while the movers were hauling away our furniture.

The property is clean, quiet and convenient. There's not much within walking distance, but that's true of most of San Diego. We love this neighborhood in general because it's central to all of what San Diego has to offer. I would recommend it to out-of-town visitors who are looking for an inexpensive and safe place to stay in the city without the amenities of a larger resort.

I tend to judge hotels on the bathrooms, and while this one was clean there was no hair dryer (?) and the water pressure was low, so it doesn't get as high marks as it might have otherwise.

Room Tip: Some reviewers note that the hotel is difficult to access if heading southbound on Mission Bay Drive...

I needed to stay near San Diego for one more day after leaving a wonderful stay at the Ocean Park Inn in Pacific Beach, and decided to take a small ride and remain in the Pacific Beach area. Was really expecting a huge let down, but received a big surprise instead. I stayed in a single Queen room in which the decor was spectacular for a Rodeway Inn. I guess all Rodeways are not created equal (understatement). My room happened to be in the single story section of the Inn. The room was fully equipped with a fridge, microwave, A/C unit and very nicely organized. The single story sections have grass outside the doors. The rest of the property is very well kept up also. Right across the street from Mission Bay golf course and part of the park and off the road that goes directly onto the southbound 5. It is far enough off the road that traffic noise is not a problem and although close to the freeway far enough away that there is no traffic noise. Continental breakfast is continental breakfast...period..not a full breakfast (people comment that breakfast is sparse). They had the usual, waffles, cereals, toast etc. and of course, fresh coffee & juices. The only "negative" I found was the only nearby food options I saw were Rubio's, McDonald's & In & Out. Dining is mainly nearer "downtown" which is a short drive away.
I have to go back to the SD area & will be planning to stay here again...without a doubt.

Room Tip: I really liked the room I had. No "elephants" upstairs, no one downstairs for me to worry...

Nice, clean room. Recently updated. Breakfast minimal. Good Breakfasts available in PB. Good location near I-5. Helpful staff. Good deal for Pacific Beach.
