Be afraid - Be very afraid!!!!!

This place is a complete dump. The parking area too small, clientele questionable, breakfast a joke, and the room was dirty, drab, completely outdated. We barricaded ourselves into the room for our own safety. We based our stay at this motel on reviews and photos. What we thought we were getting and what we got did not match up. THIS IS THE WORST PLACE WE EVER STAYED AT!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

Looks as cheap as the price!

The hotel over all is in a prime location for Flagstaff, yet the rooms itself are run down. There was a huge crack in one of the walls, which they filled with white stucco type stuff that didn't match the wall color. The air conditioning didn't work, old looking curtains and bedspread and the carpets appeared stained. Definitely in need of major updates. Only plus is the front desk guy was polite and friendly.

Wouldn't recommend

Although the staff was very friendly, the hotel room was dingy, the carpet was filthy and there was very little lighting. The bathroom had hardly any light and was so small that you could barely get on the toilet (and I'm a small woman). I wouldn't recommend this hotel, even for the cheap rate. You get what you pay for. It is worth spending a little more at a better place.

You get what you pay for!

The hospitality was great, but....! Had guys walking by middle school girls rooms asking them "Want to pound a few beers with us?" in front of the girls chaperone. No morals! Parking wasn't so great. The driveway entrance was too close to stop light (almost rear ended our other vehicle turning in). The rooms could us some touch-ups, but the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was huge, the showers were great, and the heating was awesome for being in 26 degree temperatures.

Bun Huggers Bun Huggers Bun Huggers Bun Huggers They make some really good burgers ANY way you want them. They make other stuff too! And you get to dress your own food just the way YOU want without any mix-ups, unless you have split personalities that constantly fight. They also have an attached bar for those who choose to consume alcohol. 10 stars!

Roadway Stay

The room was extremely small, the A/C unit was so loud we couldn't use it. There was less than one set of towels in the room, but we were able to get more. There was no phone book so we couldn't find the list of restaurants near by. There was no ice machine available (and if there was, there was no one to ask where it was located). The Continental breakfast had no milk, no cereal, and there was no one there to check out.

I booked into a rat hole.

This was the worst motel I have ever been in. I only stayed 1 hour while I looked for an other hotel to stay at. I wouldn't even put my dogs up at a place like that. [...] I want my money back.

"Stay Away"

I thought I was in the movie 'Vacancy' they should have paid us to stay there. Front desk employee was rude and had no social skills, they skipped us on room service and room smelled like cat and dog urine. Thank god our stay was just to visit NAU campus or I would have gone somewhere else!!

nightmare hotel

I accidentally clicked and made a reservation at the Roadway Inn. You have to see it yourself to believe how bad is that place that pretends to be a hotel. An unfriendly staff; a surcharge of 3.50$ for utility use when the A/C in the room is not even working plus one of the light bulbs was out; the bed looks like it was done more than 1 week ago; cleanliness is highly questionable; room was small yet the hotel charge for 1 night through cheapticket was 83.99$! It was awful and we promptly left in the next 5 minutes after inspecting "that room". We did not even ask for a refund for this scam. Cheapticket: if you care about your customers remove "this hotel" from your list. It is trash!
