I stayed here for a few nights due to some unforseen circumstances. I actually didn't have a budget so I had to go for the cheapest hotel around, which was the Rodeway Inn. Let me start with some positives. It is cheap and the room I stayed in was actually quite nice. I always had a good nights rest and I felt pretty good when I was in the room.
Then the downsides. You get what you pay for in terms of service and location. I read a few reviews saying the location is shady. Well, it really is. The parking lot is a breeding ground for who knows what and the activities of some of the guests is questionnable as well. Then again, when I was in the room I felt safe and I didn't notice any of the outside activities. So, just don't look out of the window. ;)
Then there's the service. The people behind the desk do not look professional at all and one of the has a bad knowledge of the English language. I am no native speaker as well and had difficulties understanding him. Maybe it is because I'm not from around but I'm pretty sure other non-native speakers would have problems with that as well.
Another problem was unnecessary charging of my CC. I paid with a prepaid creditcard and during our stay I suddenly received an email saying that my reservation had changed; instead of leaving sunday I would now leave friday. This changed the cost of my reservation and this was now $140, which was charged on my CC (on top of the other costs we already had paid). So this was charged about a week ago or so and it is still pending on my creditcard. Which is a problem because it's prepaid. We complained at the desk and they made it sound like it was just a minor mistake, like forgetting to give us new towels or whatever. I am actually pretty annoyed by this. They say they cancelled it and I believe them, but I am afraid I have to wait a few more days until the transaction is not pending anymore.
All in all I'd recommend this hotel only if you're on a really tight budget. If you're not, spend a little more and find a decent hotel around; there seem to be plenty.
