“Worse than Bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

If you're smart enough to look at reviews, then you're smart enough not to make the mistake we did. We got in late, made a snap decision and regretted it all night. We felt lucky our car was still there in the morning. FILTHY floors. Not sure the bed had been changed. There is the smell of cigarettes everywhere including our non-smoking room. We didn't chance breakfast; there's a Denny's across the street. This place was built in the 70's at best and has never been remodeled. The one exception to this bad review was that the restroom was ok. The owners must be milking this place before it's torn down and replaced. For god's sake don't stop here if you have children.

Room Tip: find another hotel

We ended up here due to poor planning and will never stay here again. The town was almost completely full, so we were forced to take what was available. The room had a king size bed and that's about the only positive thing to be said. The $125 rate we were forced to pay was 50% higher than the Trip Advisor listed rates and it went up even more after we booked our room. Charging what the market will bear as the town fills up -- nice! The hallway smelled of stale cigarette smoke and old air freshened. Even though our room was supposed to be non-smoking it smelled stale, musty and old. At least the sliding glass door opened to get some air, even if it was below freezing outside. The walls were so thin we could here every conversation around us and everyone who walked by in the hall. The bathroom towels were what we call locker room towels, cheap, thin and rough. The carpet appeared old and dirty. The blanket was too small for the bed and very thin. The breakfast was all cold items, cereal, toast and cheap pastries, no hot food at all. Over all the place felt dirty. We were never comfortable. If we had paid under $60 we would have expected this, but at over $120 a night we expect much more.

I was concerned after reading some of the reviews but hung in there. I paid $50 more in Santa Rosa and I actually preferred this hotel at $42.00. Desk was very helpful and friendly (her name was Daniel). room was clean and very spacious. Not a flat screen but who cares at a bargain price. If you have to have extra fancy, go somewhere else.The restaurant and bar next served excellent food and lots of draws on tap!

After calling every hotel in Williams and Flagstaff (literally), we finally got two rooms at this hotel. We were a little afraid of what we would find, due to the terrible reviews; but it wasn't as bad as some made it out to be. For sure, it is WAY, way, way, way overpriced. The whole place stunk of smoke and alcohol. There are obviously people living in several of the rooms, as there are hibachi grills and plastic patio chairs on some of the balconies. The secure entrances were not locked. We supposedly booked two non-smoking rooms, but apparently non-smoking means the room isn't on fire, because the smell of smoke was overpowering in both rooms. One room smelled like beer as well. Smells of smoke and beer in a hotel showing obvious signs of long term occupancy is NOT encouranging! The only thing that made me not wonder if this was a "by the hour" motel, was the exorbitant rate. One room was a comfortable temperature, but couldn't get the heater to turn down in the other and the kids baked all night.

On the flip side, the front desk staff was kind and courteous. However, they told me they had no ability to print a receipt as we were checking out, which concerns me! The beds were comfortable enough, and the pillows were ok. The TV's are old, but functional, as is the furniture. Not a lot of noise inhibition in the rooms, so we could hear upstairs and around us.

Room Tip: If you can't find anything else, it will do. But you will pay through the nose for a terrible sm...

Dirty and over-priced. It was late and we were desperate for a place to stay one night. It was so expensive and so not worth the money. Our children were scared; let's just say they are use to nicer accommodations. Besides the shabby conditions there was absolutely no seal around our door (which opens to the outside) and we could hear traffic and feel the cold. No one braved the shower. We slept in our clothes and then left first thing. Unless absolutely desperate - stay somewhere else!!

I needed a a budget hotel for one night on a roadtrip. Pulled in and should have pulled straight out again when I was told the rate. $136 + tax for a room. However it was late and we just wanted to get settled in somewhere and enjoy the city for the night.

The room was shabby with paint peeling of the walls and doors. The bathroom was scruffy and the whole place felt unkempt. I know Rodeway is a relatively budget chain however, this was as poor as it gets. It was just made worse when a few days later I secured a small suite in Scottsdale at a 5* hotel for just $10 more.

Very disappointed. Did not match what the website said. No coffee pot, very tiny room, tv was very difficult to use (remote didn't work to turn off and on the tv), never made up room one day, key card didn't work on the second day there. So disappointed, left a day early. Only good thing was the proximity to roads to Grand Canyon and Sedona.
