“Okay for One Night”
Reviewed 29 July 2010

Wanted a basic, clean hotel near Seaside Heights, NJ. Would rather have stayed right in Seaside Heights, but motels were either more than I wanted to spend and/ or had a three-night minimum stay on weekends. Tried for the nearby HoJo but was browsing other hotels and when I checked back an hour later, they had no rooms left! Rodeway was definitely not my first choice.

Overall, the review below by phi11yphan is very accurate and described the room and staff to a T! The only comments I would add are that our pillowcases did not look fresh. They were quite wrinkled...and not the type of wrinkled that comes from the dryer! They actually looked used. I ended up wrapping my beach towel (which was clean!) around my pillow.

I believe the hotel was supposed to offer a free continental breakfast, but it was not mentioned at all. The "breakfast bar" was actually a small counter in the lobby...and the lobby was as small as the rooms! We did not even bother to ask about it. I did notice a coffee machine and an ice-maker on the counter (never saw one of those before...it apparently made ice in seven minutes!). They had an outdoor pool which looked clean from a distance (we did not use it).

Would I stay here again? Probably yes, if the circumstances were the same...a one-night stay just to be near the beach without spending a bundle.

Reviewed 14 August 2009

my wife and i were pleased, since we didn't expect much, and just needed to crash the night somewhere cheap, cool, and clean with no frills. on a friday, we paid $109 base, plus the 12% tax (state 7 + occupancy 5). twin bed

tiny room. open the door, there's the bed. then a small path to walk, then a wall (which hid the bathroom behind.) good enough heat and air.

clean room, sheets, bathroom. no bugs. quiet, even thought we stayed next to the office on the 1st level. 7 miles to the beach, straight down SR37. courteous and friendly front desk, as long as you're not ethnically bothered and can't be patient enough to interpret a heavy but kind Indian accent.

if all you need is a clean spot to squat for the night (and still be close enough to the beach), then this will do, at a cheap price.

WARNING: [Unrelated to the Rodeway Inn], do NOT choose the cheap motel alternative across the street called "Gilford Park" on SR37, unless you want to pack DOG TICKS to come home with you. We found 8 dog ticks at Gilford Park crawling on the carpets, then running underneath the carpets when detected by flashlight. Again, this is not related to RodeWay Inn; but we wanted to warn anybody trying to cut costs ($70/night on a saturday!) by trying across the street.
