Rodeway Inn Silver City
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Silver City
Reviewed July 12, 2011

First the good: Location is fine and rooms are clean.
Now the bad: First, in order to get to our room we had to drive through an alley-like passage through a huge puddle of dirty water, on which the other side lay a large piece of lumber with nails in it. Then we had to drive over 2 sections of mud and raised sidewalk complete with stairs. Had to walk through mud to get to the door - mind you.....there is a drought right now, so not sure where the standing water came from.

Second - even though the sign in front advertised micro and refrig, the room had neither. Nor did it have a coffee machine, blow dryer or iron. The furniture was very dated, and the room fairly small.

Third, the staff was constantly right outside the door sweeping, talking loudly, and other things we could not recognize. It made me feel very uncomfortable because the door did not seal tightly and we had no idea why so much was going on right near our door. There was also constant stomping up the stairs and overhead.

Next, all of a sudden the room was filled with fumes. It smelled as though someone was using a propane grill right outside and the smoke was pouring in.

Lastly, although advertised as a handicapped room, the handicap features amounted to 2 bars in the tub....that was it. No bench or step-in shower.

In 3 weeks of different motel stays nearly every night, this has been the absolute worst one.

I joined TripAdviser just to warn others to stay away.

Sorry, I really try to not write bad reviews but this hotel is one of the worse places I have ever stayed at.
Advoid at all costs, the beds are extremely hard -sleeping on the floor would be more comfortable. There are no drawers in which to place your personal belongings, no blow dryer, no coffee maker, no microwave or refrigerator. I do not believe in this day and age that a hotel can make it without the basics and I consider the above basics...
I will say that the hotel for the most part was clean, but that is the only good thing I can say.

Our stay was during the week between Christmas and New Years. This hotel is basically for sleeping and showering. No extras were provided. BE AWARE when staying here that the rooms do not have a blow dryer or in-room coffee maker. We stayed for two nights in a King Bed room on the bottom floor. For toiletries, we were provided two bars of soap and one shampoo per day (no lotion, conditioner, etc). The room did have a microwave and refrigerator. The mattress was on the firm side, but otherwise a good night's sleep wihout a lot of noise (the hotel didn't have many guests). The TV, heater, and warm shower were the best part of our experience.
The "continental breakfast" was very scant and we had to get breakfast at the Shell station one morning. What was provided: One pot of coffee (no decaf choice), two cold cereal choices, 2% milk, orange juice, bite-sized cinnamon rolls, and a small variety of danishes. That was it! The breakfast area has one table with 4 chairs. Very small for a hotel that has so many rooms. The clerk at the desk was the one who restocked the breakfast area, so if they were busy and the food ran out, we had to wait. I've been to other Rodeway Inns and this was the worst so far.
On the Choice Hotels list for Silver City, this was the cheapest hotel. You get what you pay for, so don't expect much.

This hotel is a good budget location for seeing the Gila National Monument and other local scenery. The management was friendly and thoughtful. There was a senior group there for a senior baseball tournament. The manager was careful to give us a location away from this (surprisingly) rowdy group. We never heard a thing from them and had a quiet night as a result. No breakfast, but free coffee was good. Microwave and fridge in good working order.

A brand new location in January 2006 and was still not listed in the Motel 6 property location guide at the time. Felt very deserted the one night we spent there. However it was a standard Motel 6 and was clean and comfortable. Basically what you would exect for this chain.
