Makes claims of free parking free shuttle

The reason for picking this motel free shuttle free parking free Internet. Internet was free. You could not park there free why you went on your cruise. And the shuttle bus was not free. Not recommended for children. Too much of a bar seem. Little adult entertainment.

Overpriced

Staff was friendly and location was fine, but the 'room with kitchenette' looked as though it was originally a small, mediocre room and boxy furniture was shoved in to make it fit and justify a higher price. Really weird bathroom design where door cleared sink by a mere 1/4 inch, and you had to be completely in the bathroom (out of the way of the sink AND toilet!) to close the door behind you. In addition, noticed a huge black mold stain in shower ceiling... the morning of taking a shower.

Meh. Not worth the price.

Front lobby typical of older Florida east coast hotels (or at least typical of the half dozen or so I've stayed in in this area): too many "souvenirs" for sale that borders on gaudiness. But, it was clean and the staff friendly & courteous. The room was okay, clean for its age. Although it had the typical 2 queen-sized beds, big screen tv, dresser, easy chair, "kitchenette" (small sink, fridge, coffee maker) & bathroom, it seemed as though someone thought 'how can I get all this squared, slightly oversized furniture in this slightly undersized room?' Even the sink was way too big for the bathroom. You had to stand well inside the bathroom to open the door from within, cause the door cleared the sink by a mere 1/2 inch. There was a water and mold spot above the shower head about 8" in diameter. Black mold was about 2" in diameter. While the room was just mediocre, I've stayed in better for well under half the price. Definitely not worth the $175/night we paid.

Good Value for the Money

A more than adequate room with large queen sized bed, clean and comfortable. Typical hot breakfast. Warm and friendly staff. Close to major highways, Port Everglades and airport. Caveat: the "tipping jar" is always present whether for the driver or the breakfast room staff. Restaurants in the immediate area are sports bar types; anything else is a ten minute drive away.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If it's feasible for you consider using public transportation from the airport to the city. It may take some extra time but the costs can be 15% of the limo or cab services.

great location to cruises

We useto book directly to the hotel and get a good price and free parking and free shuttle to our cruise. This time we booked with you thinking of a better price but at the hotel we found that the free parking was not included and we had to pay an extra $25for it. On top of that on our way back we had to wait 45 minutes to get back to the hotel and after several calls to the hotel without any answer at each call. We were put on hold and nobody came back. This also happenned to other fellow travellers. We had to pay $10 to another shuttle Co. Very poor sevices.

A go to inn before setting sail

The Rodeway Inn was a great hotel to stay at before my group (10 people) started our 14 day cruise. We were picked up and brought to the hotel in a timely manner. Warmly welcomed by Lizzi the hotel manger. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the airport and the port . All transportation was always on time with drivers polite and informative. The hotel is dated but clean. The only problem was if you were on the second floor there is no elevator. Great place to come before you sail to relax before the fun begins.

Good value. top notch staff

After considering the price, I was very concerned about the airport shuttle service. The drivers and staff take their duties very serious. The drivers would call and personally update the customers on there status and position.

Needs that special something

Needs that special something pretty well sums it up. The rooms need updating. The walls are paper thin. My room had a phone that did not work, hair and trash left from the previous travelers, the tub did not drain adequately and the crack in the door was big enough for an iguana to squeeze through. Positives; had a pool, a gift shop, relaxing courtyard and an excellent restaurant attached.

The Reef. Mon-Fri certain draft beer I buy one get two. Don't recommend the nachos or the mash potatoes. Wraps, fries, black an blue burger, steak, and other appetizers were excellent.

Worst shuttle service I've ever experienced!

Very negative experience for an overnight before a cruise out of FLL. Upon arrival, I called the desk for shuttle pick up and was told 20 minutes. I called after waiting 25 minutes and was asked, "he's not there yet?" and told another 10 minutes. I called after another 12 minutes and was immediately put on hold for another 4 minutes until the shuttle arrived. For the 41 minutes, I would have taken the $15 taxi, if I had known better! In the hotel store, we both received terrible customer service from the woman in the shop. When my sister tried to purchase something, she just continued on her personal telephone call rather than attempting to answer her questions. When I let her know I was ready to check out, she just completely ignored me and continued to stock the fridge in an otherwise empty store. I thought she didn't hear me, so I asked her again, "ma'am?", and was rudely instructed to wait until she was finished. The circuit breaker controlling the t.v., microwave, lamps, and mini fridge tripped six different times in the 6-8 waking hours we spent in the room. We had to figure out the problem ourselves, and then call the desk each time to have them reset it. When we got up to our room initially after checking in, the room keys had to be reset for us to be able to enter the room. The "continental breakfast" was a very small room for way too many people. I would have gone to the restaurant next door if I had known. They have a 9:30 am shuttle to the cruise port for $2/person, or a 10:30 a.m. shuttle to the cruise port for free, although the only information provided to me initially was the "free cruise shuttle." We took the early shuttle to avoid the massive amount of people leaving for the cruise port. Although not the hotel's issue, someone banged loudly on our door around 11:30 pm, waking us up. Needless to say, we did not answer the door. The only positive point about this place is the dinner restaurant/sports bar they have, which might not be the same business as the hotel. Ate there last year when I stayed next door. I will definitely not ever stay here again.

Sports bar/restaurant in this hotel is good for dinner. The hotel right next door (Red Carpet) has a little diner that is good for breakfast.
