“ONLY TO SLEEP”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

I have no problem staying in "cheap dives" as long as they are clean and friendly and that's how I would classify this place. It was the cheapest place we could find close to Lackland AFB for BMT graduation ceremonies. Literally it was just across the road from the base, 5 minute or less drive and about a 15 minute walk to the main gate (but the base is huge and walking really isn't an option). We were there for 4 nights and it was primarily other parents, like us, staying in a cheap place close to base. There is a VERY small pool, which new airmen CAN NOT USE and a very basic coffee and muffin type breakfast area. They do have a small laundry facility to use if needed but thats about it. If all you need is a place to sleep then this works as well as a more expensive hotel.
Yes it has a musty smell from the summer heat and humidity and there are a number of cosmetic issues I could pick on but for about $50 per night for 2 beds, mini fridge, microwave, iron and 24/7 air conditioning which bottoms out at 62 it was about as good as you can find. If I had to do it again I would, all our time was with our son traveling around San Antonio, we only slept here and it worked.

Room Tip: We stayed in 109 which has a tree and picnic table out front to sit and read and sip some cool beers...

This clean, well maintained motel (yes, you drive up to your room) is a good deal for the money. Check in was smooth and the desk clerk was polite and knowledgeable about Lackland and the surrounding area. The room had 2 queen beds that were comfortable. The bathroom was clean but the towels are well worn and not very fluff - they really do need to upgrade the towels. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and hair dryer as advertised. The pool is small and could be cleaned a little more than it currently is. The "breakfast" is not very good. The exact something every morning. Coffee, tea, apple juice and coffee. Boxed donuts, old bread and a dirty toaster. The scrambled egg patty is something I have never heard of nor would try, the look is unappealing. 3 cereal choices and 2% milk. The soda machine is expensive ($1.00 for a 12 oz can) and the snack machine does nor work. As I said, no Ritz but agood place for the money.

My family (me, wife, two young daughters) came to town to visit my folks for the weekend. We had enough choice hotel points for two nights for this location and a few other Rodeway Inns or EconoLodges. We picked this one rather than the Econolodge down the road simply because we have never stayed at a Rodeway Inn.
So for the price (free) we were not disapointed. Room was not too big, but it did have a decent TV and a fridge and microwave. Room was clean and beds were comfy, although the sheets were very thin. Although the motel is close to the freeway (US 90) it was very quiet.
We were happy we picked this place rather than the Econolodge down the road because we discovered that the Econolodge pool was not open. The Rodeway pool was, however, and when traveling with young kids, a pool is a must. And this was a nice little pool-clean and shaded in some spots.
So, yeah, I would recommend the Rodeway Inn if you are in town for a brief stay and are on a budget.
We didn't try the breakfast but it looked to be typical of this type of motel. Oh- and the staff was very friendly.

After reading the reviews I was kind of worried but kept our reservations. It was better than expected. Super convenient to lackland afb. Price was affordable though I didn't know there was a 2 per day charge added in until we arrived and left my payment information. Being on a budget that would have been nice to know. The people were friendly and helpful at the desk. Have waffles the size and shape of texas for breakfast. Rooms were in better condition than I expected. Overall a good experience. Slept well.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the base and we were attending AF Graduation ceremonies. Ended up being a big mistake! In my case--housekeeping did not clean up my room, but "cleaned out" my room (theft involved the day after checking in) and not a care in the world from management! At checkout, was told that management would contact me via phone and letter and nothing...only after I sent a letter to them one week later did they attempt to call me, leaving me a VM saying they would try to call me back and again...nothing.
Customer Service is not a priority to this hotel's management (these hotels are independently owned and operated, so can only speak about the Rodeway Inn at Lackland)
If you are looking for a cheap place to stay that is close to LAFB and nothing else matters...then this is your place. Otherwise, I would say pay a little more and stay elsewhere. you have been warned.

Great price for a 5 night stay. The hotel is older but the room was clean and the staff was very friendly. We did have a problem with hot water at night when other families were using the laundry facilities so we showered in the morning in order to have hot water. The pillows aren't that great so I would suggest bringing your own. The hotel is so close to Lackland you can hear them playing retreat at night. I would definitely stay here again if I needed to go to Lackland.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the number lower than 126 and you won't have any problem with hot water.

This is an older hotel. The rooms were clean, the pool area was nice. Front desk staff extremely helpful with directions. Rooms included fridge and microwave. The location was close to Lackland Airforce Base. Would use this motel again if going to LAFB
