Okay, so this is not a 5-star hotel, but I do recommend it, so let me explain. Before I stay at any hotel in the Choice Hotels chain, I cross reference each hotel two ways. First, I look on AAA to see what hotels they recommend in a given city, and second I scour the Internet for reviews. If I get thumbs up from both sources, I will stay at the hotel. I’ve found this to be necessary because there is so much inconsistency in the Choice chain. Using this method, I have found good values, especially for quick overnight stays, and this little Rodeway Inn is a good example. It doesn’t look like much from the highway, one level with all outdoor-room-access and fading paint. In fact, as we drove past several other hotels from the Choice chain that all looked much nicer from the outside and arrived at the dumpiest looking Rodeway, my family started looking at me as though I had lost my mind. But I kept telling myself that the competitors were NOT recommended on AAA and the Rodeway was, so I checked us in. It turned out we were not alone. By morning, just about every room had been booked, and I have to say for a quick overnight, the value was outstanding. The room was clean, with a good shower. The bedding was comfortable, not outstanding but comfortable. The breakfast bar was a little lacking, only offering instant oatmeal and bad Danish in plastic wrap. There was no milk, only powdered creamer for coffee, but we weren’t there for the food. Plus, Lake View is a nice, bustling town with lots of sidewalk to walk and stretch your legs after a long day driving. If you are looking for clean and cheap, stay here.
