My wife, son and I spent a week here while visiting relatives. We booked the room as part of a package with airfare and a rental car. The hotel is very close to our relatives and seemed to be a bargain.
Unfortunately the room smelled a little off (possibly mildew). The pillows were so badly stained and spotted that you could clearly see how bad they were through the pillow cases. The office was able to exchange three of the four with marginally cleaner pillows but then they ran out.
The room had two queen beds which was fine for the three of us adults. Unfortunately they would only have two sets of towels in the room. It required a nightly trip to the office in order to get a third set of towels. Every night we made at least one trip to the office for towels or other missing items. One day all the soap was removed from the bathroom and none was left....
The room was pretty large and included a small refrigerator and microwave but no coffee maker. My wife mentioned the lack of coffee maker to the manager when she talked to him on the 2nd day and he told her he had removed them to take to his other motel (Super 8). What he didn't mention and we didn't find out until the fifth day was that they had coffee available in the office in the morning. It would have been nice to know.
The staff was generally friendly and would try and provide us with whatever was missing each day but it took regular trips to the Office to get what we needed. They even neglected to make up the room at all one day!
I don't think I'll ever stay at this hotel again. This was my first experience with a Rodeway Inn, I don't know if it's typical of the chain or not but I'd be very hesitant to stay at another one.
