Rodeway Inn & Suites
Ranked #13 of 16 Hotels in Winter Haven
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We asked for non-smoking, got a smoking room. They switched us to another room that smelled much better but it was still not very nice. It seemed clean at first glance, but the mattresses must have been as old as I am, the carpet was stained, the bedspreads were dirty and stained and nasty. The walls were so thin and the windows so old and thin that you could hear a whispered conversation outside or in the room next door. It didn't feel safe, the shower leaked through the WALL into the main room and the carpet by the bed was soaked after using the shower. There was one small bar of complimentary soap, that's it. No tissues, no ice bucket, no cups, no coffee maker, no iron or ironing board, no hangers, no shampoo, not even a pen and paper. No phone either. It was very minimally maintained, in desperate need of renovation. AND... there were cockroaches. I should have left, but they refused a refund. Absolute [--]!! Do NOT let the pictures fool you like they did me. Gross!!

Filthy room...AC hardly worked...internet rarely worked...poor lighting due to missing bulbs...carpeted floors that I was afraid to walk on with socks...insecure door locks...and very dated and old furnishings. Tried to get a refund after 1/2 hour but was refused. Was switched to another room which also had a broken AC...PLEASE STAY AWAY!

We booked this motel off the internet website, Pictures of the motel must have been taken 50 years ago. When we got to florida and checked into the Ranch House motel we were in for a BiG Surpiise. First we we told of a free breakfast at I-Hop on the phone and that did not happen. when we got in the room( HOOKER Paradise) floors were moldy, room really stunk. Beds mattrass was stained and moldy, Sheets were stained . NO WAY were we going to stay there. We went right back to the office to get our money back and they REFUSED A refund. we went to another hotel. DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT STAY THERE What a ___ Hole.

Rooms were old and worn, not well kept. Had to change rooms 3 times until we found a room with an air conditioner that did not drain onto the floor - floors were soaked, mold growing in closet sheetrock crumbling. No linens for pull out bed - front desk sent over sheets from a bed in another room, pillow had every imaginable human body fluid caked on it - I would not let my dog sleep on the pillow. We had to threaten to contact Fla. Atty General to get them to release the balance of our up-front payment. We left after one night.

We stayed at this motel last week and were pleasantly surprised at how it is changed since the last time we stayed. Apparently it is under new management. The room we had was very spacious and clean and the price was very reasonable. We also got a free breakfast at IHops’. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. My husband has difficulty in walking so the manager offered to drive us from our room to IHop for breakfast. We would defiantly recommend this motel to anyone.
