On the advice of Trip Advisor reviews we stayed here; we requested a smoking room which they had. Good grief, what a horrid experience. Holes in the blankets (why not replace them?) - when I checked the mattress for bedbugs (a habit when I stay somewhere other than Best Western) I noticed the box spring was disgustingly old and dirty....

I read other reviews of many hotels in the area before booking. I can not say enough good things about the Rodeway Inn. Location! Location! My husband and I took a very last minute weekend to visit Mystic and New London Connecticut. We had never been to this area. The Rodeway is exactly where you need to be! Both cities...

Good location, great price, exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, not fancy--but very clean and comfortable. Nice to have the car right at the door! Very roomy--separate kitchenette area--makes it nice to be able to spread out a bit and not trip over each other.

If you are thinking about booking at the Rodeway Inn, you should not hesitate. The room rates are very reasonable and the room we had was pleasantly surprising. It looked like it had just been done over with new carpets, fresh paint, new bedding, sparkling bathroom. Also had immaculate mini fridge and microwave. Not a luxury hotel, but it was...

Hello Linda, I apologize on behalf for the entire Rodeway Inn team. We have since fixed the issue with the lock by replacing the faulty batteries and checked the phone in the room.

The Rodeway Inn is an older, two story motel. Our room was immaculately clean and the staff very helpful. When I noted the room did not have a coffee maker, one was brought right to us - along with all the fixings. This place is nothing fancy - but if you are looking for a clean place to stay, convenient...

I was going to a concert at Mohegan Sun and needed a room for the night. This place was clean, quiet, and a 15 min drive to Mohegan. And it was hundreds of dollars less than some of the hotels around the area. They even had bagels and coffee in the morning. So for the price and what I was...

Three of our staff members stayed here on a business trip. They reported that while the inn was in a nice area, the inn itself was in poor condition. One traveler noted that the room connected to hers did not actually lock, compromising her safety and privacy. The area is relatively expensive, but I would recommend looking somewhere else and...
