I had a decent stay here but be aware this is an old hotel that has been "modernized." It was very quiet, being set back from the highway. The bed was comfortable but by no means new. I thought the linens were a little thin and worn. I would like to see table lamps with outlets so I can use my CPAP machine bedside and computer on the desk. At least they supplied power strips so that wasn't too much of an issue. The room I had (109) suffered from a terrible internet connection and was very slow and nearly unusable. I didn't have breakfast so I can't speak to the quality. Foreign-owned.

We got into town about 11:00, and just for kicks stopped in at the hotel so we knew where it was. They had actually had an early departure so we were able to check in! The staff was great, and the front lobby and pool area were quite nice. The rest of the hotel is a bit dated, but it is kept up well. Or room was clean, and mostly comfortable. The chair could use replacing, there is very little spring left in the seat so you sink quite a ways into it. The bathroom door didn't quite shut all the way, but with just me and the wife does that really matter? I did like the fact that we were able to park right outside the door like the old days. For the price we paid, this was a four star hotel. Will I come back? Maybe. If it's just me I'll be sure to come back, if it's more than that we'll move a little higher in the quality chain.

A decent motel. Outside entrance to room. Indoor pool closed. Very nice staff went out of their way to help us. The fan in the bathroom of room 100 needs repair or replacement as it is very noisy. The bed was comfortable. Everything in the room was clean. We did lose cable for the tv for a while. Refrigerator and microwave in room. For the price is was great A 10$ fee for animal, however I did not see that when we made reservation. A sign at check in made that clear.

We are just concluding a two-week stay. My husband is here for a class, and I came along just to be with him. We originally had a reservation at a neighboring discount hotel. We made that reservation several months ago, but they conveniently lost, we ended up here. We paid a weekly rate in advance, and that rate would be hard to beat. The hotel is very dated, but mostly clean. There are a few "grimy" areas, but that didn't bother me. We had a room facing the pool, which was nice. The pool is clean and refreshing. I did a lot of coming and going while my husband was in class, and felt very safe. The owners here are amazing. We had a problem with our card reader key entry..permanently locked out. They came immediately with a solution and changed out the card reader by the end of the day. They were very friendly and accommodating, and I felt like they were always watching out for me. The housekeeping crew was unobtrusive, and always seemed to know when I wasn't in the room (that is when they came). The room itself was good...comfortable beds and a hot shower. There was a continental breakfast every morning, which was mostly pastries, waffles, and cereal. It was sufficient for us, and there were places to get breakfast within easy drive. The only down side was the room was very dark, even with all the lights on. Maybe updating the lighting would help. There were two sinks in our room, which was nice, but the fluorescent light above it never did work. There are a washer/dryer available, as well as snack and ice machines. The hotel was basically very quiet and worth the discounted weekly price. If you are looking for fancy and plush, this isn't it. However, we will definitely tag here again.

Clean. Usual kind of breakfast with waffles! The person at the registration desk was very help full. Gave us some tips on how to save money while traveling. Would recommend to anyone. The pool looked very nice but did not have time to swim.

Our room had built up dirt in corners, small holes in bathroom walls, damaged door in bathroom, tv remote could not change channels. Probably would not have stayed but needed to get some rest because we had another long day ahead of us

I was traveling across country, picking up various family members for a family reunion of sorts. My trip was long and I was looking for hotels around a certain price point. The first one I stayed in was a horror and I cancelled all my reservations at every hotel around that price point save one, this one. And I'm glad I kept this reservation!! My brother and my son were with me at this point, and we weren't looking for extras we wouldn't use. We were looking for clean, comfortable, and everything functioned -WE GOT ALL OF IT. We all said that this hotel is one of the best we've stayed in during this trip (including one that was,without discount, 4x more expensive ) . The room was huge! They even had a rollaway bed for my son (the 4x more expensive hotel near Denver, CO did not have one). The stairs up to our 2nd floor room were not high, which my knees appreciated greatly. It was quiet. We will be staying here again!

Needing a room for a one night stay while driving through Kansas, we opted to stay at the Rodeway Inn in Emporia. Check in experience was great, room was roomy with a great bed and nice tv, everything was very clean, and it very quiet. Our room's door faced the indoor pool (as you can see on the Tripadvisor's picture) but there was not a strong chlorine smell I was anticipating. Breakfast was a simple continental. For the price paid for this room, I found it to be a great value. There are plenty of restaurants within a short drive from the hotel, easy access from I-35 and the Casey's convenience store across the street had the best prices on gas. Well done Rodeway!

So, I got the suite. Walked in, huge room, OMG! There's a sunk in heart shaped whirlpool tub. This place is huge, couch, 2 chairs, but, and here is the rub. Walk into the bathroom and the toilet paper is on backwards. I know this seems silly but, I started to breathe heavy, the room started to spin, I had to sit down. Ahhh! My girlfriend brought me a wet wash cloth for my forehead. I almost ran out screaming in the indoor pool area WHY GOD WHY! WHY CAN'T PEOPLE SEE THE LIGHT! These people must shown the way it's always overhand. If you've read this far then I highly recommend this place. It's quiet and for an older place it's cheap and really nice.

We needed a one night stay and this place was just the ticket. Clean, inexpensive and handy to the highways. Comfy beds were a happy surprise! We were happy with our rooms. Breakfast was simple but good.
