Rodeway Inn University
Ranked #11 of 14 Hotels in Pocatello
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This property is very run down, and dated. The bath tub has stains and a crack in the surround. The hand rail in the bath was falling off. Noticed the sheets had stains on them, and the shower curtain rod was rusty. The breakfast did not have fresh fruit, little cups of canned fruit instead. Will say the staff was friendly. We left this location after one night, and moved to another hotel in area.

Louise M, General Manager at Rodeway Inn University, responded to this reviewResponded 7 March 2014

Hello--I'm very sorry you had such a bad experience at our property, We very much appreciate you telling us about your concerns. It is an older facility and we work very hard to see that our guests are comfortable. At the present time we are working up on several upgrades. The Rodeway Inn is an economy brand with economy rates and therefore is only required to have a very limited breakfast. We are proud to have expanded ours to include fresh baked waffles, hot and cold cereals, bagels and cream cheese, the fruit cocktail and more. Thank you again for advising us of your concerns. Sincerely, Louise

Very nice room, old-style TV, extremely friendly staff, fresh-baked cookies at 8pm provided by host. Nothing wrong with the location. Walked to The Bridge for supper (Canadian term for the last meal of the day)

The only two things going for this property are the rates (but you get what you pay for) and the cheery check-in staff member. The location isn't close to major shopping, i.e. the mall, etc but is close to downtown. Getting to the property via Interstate southbound is out-of-the-way. The accommodations are...shall I say...old. The shower curtain rod was rusty, the pillows were lumpy, the heater outdated and the breakfast was inadequate. The check-out clerk was obviously from the night-shift as he seemed completely uninterested. But hey, the place was quiet but then again there weren't many guests either.

The rooms were smaller than fancier hotels, but my room was extremely clean and the staff was the friendliest. This property makes the most out of its physical limitations. It's older and has older furniture, a box TV and no curved shower rod. However, I would stay at this property again for under $60 again and again. Some of the higher priced properties with more extensive amenities don't get the TLC of this property. Kudos to the management and staff.

Nice cheap motel right in the middle of Pocatello. Arrived late and night and was given the Kayak-advertised rate by the clerk, who was very friendly. The room was nothing fancy, but the bedding was clean, as was the bathroom, shower, and carpet. The AC worked perfectly, and while the TV is not a flat-screen, it is large and there are lots of channels available. Nothing bad to say about our room, and recommend this place to anyone just passing through in need of a quiet place to crash.

Hello, I very much appreciate you taking the time to review our Rodeway Inn. Yes, it is an older property but we pride ourselves in having an excellent staff. Many of our guests like the location especially because it is so close to Idaho State University. I hope you can return sometime. Sincerely, Louise

Good spacious rooms for reasonable rate. Good breakfast too. We stayed over here on the way to Yellowstone from SLC. It is right across the university. Close to many restaurants and grocery store, if needed.
