If CLEANLINESS isn't a big deal for you...this might be a great value for you. We don't fall into that category. We know it's a motor hotel, but or the price ($70ish) we expected WAY more... Like a paycheck for cleaning our rooms! Pro: not horribly expensive (although we still didn't consider it a good value-- read "cons" below); "Carrie"... More

The hotel had 2 wifi network, one of them was short-range and didn't reach enough my room (I had to go out to to the corridor to get connected), and the other one didn't work. Finally,during the check-out, I left 2 postcard to the reception woman to be posted, but never arrived to destination, so I guess she lost my... More

Driving back from a weekend in the Daks and it was getting too late to keep driving. All we wanted was a clean, quiet place to get some shut eye and this inn was perfect. The staff were super friendly when I called ahead, when we checked in, and in the morning when we checked out. The room was super... More

We just recently stayed here for 3 days. The room itself could use a paint job, but other than that, it was clean & comfortable, The Staff were extremely helpful & friendly. The rates were excellent.

I've been here a few times lately. Stayed in a few different rooms. First, room 203 does most definitely have that nasty stain on the side of the mattress as a previous reviewer posted. It's definitely not blood(as the previous reviewer suggested, most likely coffee) but the owners refuse to even admit that the stain is there, they won't even... More

My wife and I found this to be a perfect place to stay while spending a weekend shopping in Watertown. It's not much to look at from the outside but don't be deceived.

I needed a place to crash on my travels and stayed at the Rodeway, It was clean and comfortable and I didn't have any issues. The owners (I think) went out of there way to make sure I was comfortable. I would stay again oin my way through.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my 14 month old daughter. I am always very weary about where we stay as I want to be in a safe area that is also affordable. The hotel has clearly been remodeled.

Dirty, dirty, dirty! I wish I had seen the reviews BEFORE booking! It's dirty, it smells and its loud! Their free breakfast sucks! My choice of beverage was cranberry juice or coffee with no real cream. The stairs and hallways are so dirty, it's sick! Shame on Hotwire for having this place on their site!
