I believe it is necessary that the public know there was a murder at this hotel in 2015. You can google it. So with that said, it is my opinion, that the lack of safety and security is a huge reason you should stay away. Also there is a $500 security deposit you must put down.

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, as you recall you don't have any credit cards and wished to pay cash. We are happy to accept cash but without a deposit to cover any potential damage, there is too much risk to the hotel. As for the murder, it was also unfortunate but things happen in all hotels. This married man told his wife he was going to watch football at a local bar. Instead, he picked up a street hustler and the hustler robbed and strangled him. It could have happened anyplace. Thanks again for your review and if you ever get a credit card you are welcome to stay with us without the $500 deposit.

Located near a hospital we needed. Worked out perfectly for walking to the hospital the next morning. The staff was helpful. We had to schedule the room for another night and that was no problem for the staff. Good restaurants right on the same street.

I attended a class reunion in Philadelphia. The hotel was a perfect location. It is walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. It is very close to a train station from the airport. The hotel is very clean with a very helpful evening staff.

I stayed in the Rodeway Inn for work for 2 nights (28 & 29 Oct 2018). The location is good and there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars nearby. However, I had mice in my room (saw one 4 times in one afternoon while working). The room had not been cleaned properly (there

Thank you for the review. As a budget hotel we are proud to offer a place in a major city that is affordable. Unfortunately, some guest like yourself want to stay in a major city and get 5-star accommodations but you don't have the financial ability. We don't advertise a breakfast and parking is only $17 per night as you are well aware. Posting a review titled "Good location but dingy and few amenities" is unfair since as a budget hotel we are obligated to offer a clean room and good service which is what you received. My suggestion is to make better decisions when you travel and save your money to stay in a 3 to 5-star hotel. Thank you, Rodeway Inn

Queen sized bed with a shared bathroom. What does this mean? Bathroom in the hall shared with other guests?
We offer 5 rooms with double beds and a private external bathroom across the hall. Great for a single traveller looking to save some money. Brian

He accused me of leaving Ice machine and toys. The Manager is not only unprofessional but a bad liar. I should report him to the BBB and consumer protection.

Do you operate a shuttle bus to and from the airport?
"If handicapped, let staff know because some of the halls are tiny and not wheelchair friendly. Floor levels change, too, in some areas ."
"Most of the things are available in the room"
"don't bother.................."
"Individual room thermostats would have been nice."
"Room 207 has a bathroom across the hall; the key opens both doors. The sounds from the alley and 206 can be heard in room 207."
