Nice modern quiet economic super clean. Bed was very comfortable. WiFi actually worked. Room was small but very nicely furnished. Bathroom also quite small but very clean. Parking is very limited. Great value would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for one night passing through and had a really good experience. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the place was quiet, and the shower was strong and hot! The desk staff was pleasant and efficient. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel -- my husband had gone to the office/breakfast... More

From the outside, this Rodeway Inn looks a bit dated. It appears to have been town homes at one point that have been converted into hotel rooms? Not sure on that, but both from the outside and from the layout on the inside of the rooms, it seems that way. Though the outside looks standard, the inside of the room... More

I have overlooked this motel in the past, but will always consider it in the future. The inside is much better than the outside. Huge room with king bed and normal bath etc. free wifi. Not fancy, but clean and adequate and a great value. Can walk to campus.

As advertised and as properly described by other TripAdvisor reviewers. Very basic accommodations but clean and comfortable. Even the small lawn and garden out front were very well maintained. Beds firm, ac worked well, good CATV selection, decent water pressure in shower. Al you need for overnight accommodations when one is spending most of his/her time wandering the vast central...

We recently stayed here for one night to attend a wedding in the area. Called a day ahead to request early check-in (to get dressed, freshened up, etc). Manager said he would do his best to accommodate us if a room was available. I was very pleasantly surprised when he called me on my cellphone while I was en route... More

Booked 3 rooms for our family to attend a graduation. Prior to our arrival, Mr. Patel, the manager, contacted us to ask if the parties would be arriving at separate times, and if so, if he could have their names, so he would know that they had permission to go to the room. This was very thoughtful. When we arrived,... More

First this is not a Hyatt or Hilton etc. I hate the reviews where people expect a Lexus when they are paying for a Civic. It is a basic motel. Yes it is a basic sink, shampoo, no conditioner, no lotion, who cares, I payed under $70 including tax. Okay what I liked. I was parked right next to my... More

Only stayed one night here for a show at the college. It was a clean room. Mr. Patel at the office was super friendly. There was a continental breakfast in the morning with plenty of choices. Close to the college. There was a TGIFridays across the street which made it super convenient. Definitely recommend for an overnight.
