Rodeway Inn Willamette River
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Corvallis
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Cheap, but that's what you get. The rooms are okay, except reporting problems has little effect. For example, our door wouldn't close tight. The desk person responded by giving me advice on how to wiggle the handle to make it latch. That didn't help. Finally I persuaded him to give us a different room, although he wasn't happy about it. My impression was that he thought I was just being picky so he had no intention of repairing it. Overall, the place lacked good maintenance.

The alleged breakfast is coffee, orange juice, and sweet-sticky cheap cello pastries. No place to eat them there, so we carried them across the parking lot to our room. Summary: If you don't care about breakfast, and can accept the staff's indifferent attitude, it is in a good location next to the river and near the city center.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are quieter and upstairs rooms in the back may have a view of the river.

Its old, It run down, and its cheap
It has a great location but is desperate need of a remodel.
Circa 1997 Televisions, beds that are as hard as the floor.
On a bright note. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful

My adult daughter, neighbor and myself reserved a room with 2 queen beds for one night. We needed just a bed because we needed to be up early for an all day event the next day. What we didn't need was a bed with a WET SPOT on one side. Was it a spill? Was it urine? The covers were dry so we know it came from the mattress. Yuck!

Room Tip: Go to a different location.

While there are certainally nicer, more comfortable and more expensive hotels in Corvallis, there are faw worse. If all you need is a safe and quiet room for the night, Rodeway Inn Willamette River in Corvallis should do the trick.

But don't expect much, as the Inn is clearly in need of a major upgrade. But with it, will be a major increase in price. For now, the Rodeway Inn is the best bargain in Corvallis.

As for the rooms, they are worn... but functional and clean.

Room Tip: I would suggest an upper room, if you can climb stairs. Otherwise, request a ground floor room.

I run a small guest house hotel, so I know for a fact the customer is NOT always right.
But the management of this place is. . . different.
Friendly and helpful employees--the one thing that is not a wreck, but it doesn't last long, as there is "the owner" with zero customer service skills. And he's the one in charge.

"WHAT fight in the hallway last night? There have been no OTHER complaints!"

Pet-friendly, sure, but pet room located right next to central entry where drunk students careen in out at popular 1:15AM witching hour--and perfect central location to hear quarrels in parking lot. (Yes, the fight was the parking lot, not the park.)

What is a dog to do? (I wanted to as well.) Asked to change--actually concerned for other guests. "We have no others! They are all smoking." (I bet) "People stay there with dogs all the time. It is never a problem!" Okay. Sorry I asked--really.

2nd night, drunk teenagers running up and down the hall chanting, the people upstairs had finally had it and began to shout back--this two nights in a row.

Another plus? Caring cohabitation between the inmates: I am happy to report the prostate of guy next door the first night is in fine shape: I could hear every nuance of his trip to the WC--right after the quarrel in the parking lot woke both of us up 4AM. A little worried about the second night's virtual "room mate". (The sound transmission here is excellent).
Thin walls? The least or your worries. It's like a big dorm with no locks on the entry doors, the drunk kids loose with Mom's SUV, a grimy tenant at the end chain smoking outside the door.
And it's NOT cheap--What $44 rate?--Nope! One person, one harmless though constantly "on alert" dog at an extra $10 a night, plus tax, making about $75 bucks a night.
What on earth was I thinking? Come to think of it, I'm a little "on alert" too. 3:57 AM and counting. . . Sincerely Yours, from the second night at the Rodeway Inn, Corvallis, OR
Wish I'd ridden away a good bit sooner.

We used a choice rewards night (8000 pts) to stay here and it was far worse than any other 8000 point hotel that we've ever stayed at. It is right in the downtown of Corvallis, which has some benefits and disadvantages. The benefit is that you can walk to most shops in the downtown and enjoy the farmer's market on a Saturday. Disadvantages include more homeless people in the area and loud bar crowds (including loud people standing/smoking outside the bar at the Chinese restaurant that shares the same parking lot and was only 20ft away from our room door).

Other major drawbacks is that the so-called "recent renovation" that they advertise for this hotel is nothing more than a sloppy paint job and a rearrangement of the furniture with some "new to them" linens. The most disappointing was that the AC units did not work at all. My partner sleeps hot and likes to have at least a fan running at night, but not even the fan worked on this AC unit that looked like it was from the late '60's.

The breakfast items? Some of the worst I've encountered. There was 99 cent bread (white only), a toaster, a microwave, orange juice, cheap coffee, and cheap plastic-wrapped pastries.

After a long day of driving this hotel was everthing we could really ask for, comfortable and clean. I don't have too many complaints, Sure the room was a little dated but overall for the price paid I was happy with it. I especially liked looking out at the river, may try again.
