I had to make a last minute trip and decided to use 8,000 Choice Privileges points for a room at this Rodeway Inn in Texarkana. It was billed online as a non-smoking king with a jacuzzi. I requested an upstairs room to help ensure I would get a good night's sleep.
I was not disappointed. The second-floor room was HUGE, clean and looked brand new. If it had been stayed in before, I certainly couldn't tell it.
New carpet and paint and fixtures. Everything worked in the room and since there were few other people at the hotel on a Saturday night, it was very quiet.
Breakfast was an upgrade from the usual Rodeway Inn. It consisted of sausage, eggs (although the pressed rectangular kind)biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, waffles and coffee. The only disappointment was the orange "juice" which was watered down and tasted even worse than that orange "drink" that some such hotels serve.
The high speed internet signal was the strongest I've ever experienced at a hotel, not the weak type where you have to move around the room just to get a connection.
Instead of just shampoo, they could have included some conditioner, but that was a minor inconvenience since I always carry my own.
There was a bit of construction on Stateline Drive (the main road near the hotel), but it was minor and the hotel was easily visible from I-30.
The hotel was clean and the desk clerk was competent and courteous and she spoke English as her first language.
This Rodeway Inn gets my highest recommendation.
