This is one of the hotels that CLC has listed. They should remove it. The room smelled musty. The TV remote did not work. One thing positive the bathroom was clean. The morning breakfast was space and the cereal was old. Other wise I was able to sleep. Should have read tripadvisor first. Will know better next time.

When we pulled in it looked pretty shady, but we thought we would try it anyways. So we got our room which was on the second floor. When we walked in the fridge did not work, the whole room was scary, the walls, door, and door frame were filthy. When I pulled back the sheet and blanket I found hair... More

We stayed at ths hotel and are convinced we ended up bitten by bed bugs. The room was booked while we were on the road with points and we had just driven 700 miles and were tired and just wanted a bed to sleep in. The man who checked us in was very friendly but it was down hill from... More

Call me a daredevil but I read reviews and if their bad I don't give it too much weight. I have been pleasently suprised with several hotels that have had horrible reviews but I am not very picky. This however, was just ridiculous!! The floors were soaking wet, my "non-smoking" room smelled so bad that it made all the clothes... More

Wow..... No reputable business owner would run a hotel like this. My wife and I checked in late on Saturday night after 11pm. We were not expecting much given the $55 price tag and the Rodeway Inn brand. After a glacially slow check-in process, we were assigned a room in the back of the property. When we pulled up to...

Do not stay here! First the picture I saw was a picture of the Days Inn not the Roadway Inn, second if you do see the picture of the actual hotel, it looks nothing like it now! It is completely run down and was actually condemned for a while because the top walk way caved in, even though they fixed... More

I also should have read the reviews first..will not stay again..our room was very clean, but no vanity in the bathroom, just a sink so nowhere to put toiletries. A very dim light in the bathroom..a florescent light above the sink was open and missing bulbs. The toilet was ancient and had chip marks so bad I did not want... More

Our actual room was "ok" but the parking lot and grounds were uncared for and dirty. The pool water was overly chlorinated and green. The "hot tub" was a model intended for home use and wasn't hot at all. A family member stayed in the room next to us. It was smaller than ours, dirty, damp and moldy. They got... More

Wow, I wish I had found these reviews sooner. We booked our room online from choice hotels, we had reward points to use, and the pics online looked great, but reality would soon prevail. All the previous reviews are spot on! Old, smelly, dirty carpet, holes in blankets, dirty hand prints on walls, shower had very poor pressure and was... More

I have to agree with the person below me completely. This motel was a wreck! We booked it for $50 because it was on a list of Choice Hotels (no clue why!) We checked in and went to our room, opened the door and thought that it wasn't too bad. The hotel advertised "Free wireless internet, a hot jazuzzi, and... More
