We’ve read many positive reviews before making our five night reservation at the Roadway Inn. Unfortunately, we do not share the same views. We had a nonsmoking room, but tobacco smoke was coming into our room from other rooms and from guests smoking outside our doors. For some strange reason, smoking rooms were next to the nonsmoking rooms. There is a pet friendly building but smokers and nonsmokers share the same floors. The building and rooms are dated. Beds were clean but old and sagging. Pillows flat and uncomfortable. Old TV set. There was a small fridge – nice and useful amenity. The room contained a safe, a small microwave oven would be a better option. Our room faced the back parking lot so the street noise was not very noticeable. However, there is a tattoo place and pizza joint across the street from the motel which tends to attract the locals. Music and other noises can be heard until late hours into the night. A member from our party stayed in a pet friendly room. There was a noticeable stench, at the check-in, coming from the room. Hardwood floors are easy to maintain in a pet friendly room but if not properly cleaned could be sticky. These floors were sticky and stinky. The price of the room was relatively low (off season) but many other places were similarly priced.
