Rodeway Inn - Fairborn
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Fairborn
Reviewed 3 January 2011

Avoid this place like the plague. The manager/owner who told me "you don't need to know my name" refused to honor an online cancellation for a stay at this hotel in December 2010. An obviously unethical hotel to deal with for online reservations and cancellations.

The room was not too bad. It was reasonably clean with furniture that was in decent shape. The TV was older and had a bad picture, the edges needed a good sweeping and there were a few basic maintenence issues but other than that it was ok. The hallways though were much more worn and the rear entrance was very dirty and the door did not lock. The front entrance also looked VERY neglected. Although there was a waffle machine, we felt the breakfast was quite sub-par for a typical continental and went to McD's two doors down.

Oh yeah, there was a fridge (we did not use it, but it was there) and free wifi which worked well.

We had a very good rate and wanted to be close to the base so it was ok for one night and we would stay there again for one night but would not stay there for a longer "vacation" stay. I would expect though to pay less for this property than some of the other upscale properties a few miles away.

Be sure to ck out the Airforce Museum when in this area which is why we were there. It is an amaznig complex that we only heard about from a former Airforce pilot. We travel a lot and have never read anything on this museum which was kind of sad since it is a top notch facility! We were only able to do 1/2 of it in 1 day and we were not able to spend time at every plane or exhibit in the 2 of the 4 hangars we did go to. If you have been to the Smithsonian Air and Space museum and liked it then this is a must.

Hotel is fine - not a top shelf Comfort Inn but I will stay again. The room was very clean, breakfast was OK. Lobby and hallways needed to see a vacuum but not really a big deal.

It is in a safe part of town - not very attractive but safe. Internet connection was horrible though..hope they fix that.

This hotel was a clean and comfortable place to stay. The room was very clean, except for a little dirt on the floor. The hotel is near the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. and was easy to find. The room amenities were numerous for the price, and the beds were comfortable. The service was friendly and prompt. There was a limited selection of items in the breakfast area.

This hotel is definitely not a 2.5 star rating hotel, but the staff was excellent and the room was comfortable. The beds are clean and you are given plenty of towels. We slept so comfortable and the room has the darkening curtains, that we overslept a couple of mornings. The breakfast was continental consisting of cereal, bagels, juices, poptarts, muffins, toast, waffles(some mornings), coffee, tea, hot chocolate. The pool is an outdoor pool, so if you have children that love to swim, do not stay during the Winter season. However if you are looking for a hotel, but do not want to spend much, McDonald's is in walking distance of this hotel and they have a huge playplace, so this was a winner for me as we stayed there for a week. This is not a non-smoking hotel, and sometimes you will give a whiff of cigarette smoke, which I thought would be a problem, but they kept it under control. I advise you not to go through Hotwire for this hotel as you may be able to get a better deal going directly to the Hotel and asking them what is the best rate they can give esp. if you plan to stay a week or more. I think I overpaid through Hotwire for this hotel. Again, not a 2.5 Star rating hotel, but great service for the price. Fitness Center - this hotel has access to a Fitness Center, but it is not on the location. You have to drive at least a mile or so to go work out.

We had 2 issues: bkfst on sunday am (around 8 am). There was no coffee, danishes, hard boiled eggs, bacon, sausage. We saw a kid putting cereal in the plastic containers, thought he was just helping the kitchen person. Come to find out he was the owner's son. He shouldn't have been dressed the way he was while helping take care of the food. Monday's bkfst was 100% better, all food/coffee/water was there and waiting for any guest at any point in time. (95% of hotel booked for sunday's bkfst, but that is no excuse). Don't use the internet, we got microsoft Windows Defender donwloaded on our computer and had to reset the computer back to factory settings because there is nothing to get rid of it.

The minute I walked in the door I knew this place was a dump. The front desk was staffed my a female whose child was woth her, running the halls. They gave us a smoking room which was disgusting. When asked, she gave me attitutude saying I booked a smoking room. I most certainly did not. The new room was just as gross. Dirt and pet hair everywhere, I made my kids leave the room. It was that disgusting! We walked out after searching the web for a new room. Showered when we arrived at the new hotel - Doubletree Suites (wonderful) to get the filth of that room off of us. YUCK - never been in a room so disgusting. The workers (who I think were the owners) were completely rude. I hope this place shuts down.
