This motel is involved in a major bed bug lawsuit. I think that's all I really need to say.

I had an early meeting in Glendale Galleria so I decided to book a motel close by. The Rodeway Inn was the cheapest (about $60/night) and seemed decent/safe enough as I'm very familiar with the area. Whoever wrote that it is halfway decent pretty much hits the nail on the head. There's really NO reason to stay in Glendale if you're visiting L.A. unless you have a meeting close by.
The Rodeway Inn is 100% no frills. There are no amenities, no fancy lobby, no mint on the pillow. It's simply a good-enough place to rest your head for a night or two.
The room I booked was a king no-smoking and it was pretty big, bigger than I expected. There was enough room for a king bed and a desk/workstation, plus dresser drawers, a big closet area and a small-ish bathroom. The room was clean. The bed was fine though the pillows were pretty weak. There is an in-unit AC which I used the entire night. The bathroom is clean but the bathtub looks old and just a touch icky. The shower was very weak but it did its job and there was plentiful hot water.
The parking is free but the spots are small. Also, there is free wireless Internet - just ask the front desk for the password. The Internet coverage was great.
The motel is right across the street from the Glendale Galleria, the Americana, next to 7/11 and a host of other stores. It is definitely a bustling street and because the motel is right on Colorado Blvd., it is super loud. There is a lot of street noise. Plus, because there isn't a lobby or courtyard, you can hear the guests across the way if they are talking loudly. My neighbors were also pretty loud and I could hear them talking throughout the night so the walls are definitely thin.
I didn't feel ripped off for $60/night but I probably wouldn't stay here again. The noise was a little difficult to deal with and there just wasn't anything about it that would make me want to go back. The lobby clerk was very nice though. If you have to be in the Glendale area and you're only staying for a night or two, this isn't a bad alternative.
We arrived very late and only stayed one night. The front desk clerk was there at check in and check out. She was very nice, and informed me that I had to pay for the room at check in. The parking lot is VERY cramped. I was in a compact car and had trouble getting in and out of there.
The room itself was OK. It seemed like this place has been there for a long time. The room was old, but clean. All the plumbing seemed to work fine, but the door to the bathroom would not stay closed. There is high speed internet, but not wireless, so only one computer at a time can utilize it. The bed was awful. Too firm and uncomfortable. There was no continental breakfast. Not even coffee in the front lobby.
I booked this room through a website and got a discount. The discounted price was not worth the stay. Not even for one night. I felt a bit ripped off.
You are walking distance from donuts, Yoshinoya, and across the street from the Glendale Galleria. A HUGE mall to serve all your spending needs. The hotel room is in a prime location, but not worth the price I paid, and certainly not worth more than $30.00 a night!
We normally stay at the Vagabond when visiting the Glendale area, but the prices have been creeping up higher and higher over the years.
So for a change, we thought we would try the Rodeway.
This property was a lot more basic than the Vagbond, but it was also nearly half the price.
Free coffee in the morning, but no nibbles. Although you can still get the 10 per cent discount at Foxy's.
The room was a little shabby chic (with some mould in the corner behind the ice bucket), but it was thoroughly cleaned each day. Bring your own shampoo and soap, as what was offered was very basic. There was a fridge in the room, but no microwave. The staff were very helpful and friendly, which was a nice change from the Vagabond.
The only major complaint was that none of the phone messages that our friends or colleagues left were ever given or forwarded to us. While very nice, the front desk staff were a bit vague.
This property was a perfectly fine for a couple of nights and the location is perfect. The Rodeway was very popular and sold out every night we were there due to the fantastic rates.
This place was nasty and the staff was rude.
We found a opened condom wrapper on the desk in our room when we came back to our room at the end of the day! So, apparently, someone had sex in our room while we were away!! The staff just told us that there was no way it came from them or the maid. But, it certainly came from someone besides us!
Aside from that, the place was old, dirty, noisy and the staff was very rude.
We stayed here for a couple of nights during our drive down to southern california and it was a great place to stay. its conveniently located 1/2 block away from the glendale galleria and a couple blocks away from the glendale marketplace. the hotel offers clean rooms and good services for its price. not incredibly fancy...but its still great. definitely recommend this place.
