Rodeway Inn Gadsden

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was a place to stay, less than an hour from the race track. The price was reasonable and the staff was beyond friendly. Their is evidence of work needing to be done, but wasn't a bother, since the only time spent in room was to sleep and shower.

Went here because of Irma attacking FL. Turned out my home in JAX was practically untouched but spent 4 nights here. Beds are firm, breakfast is basically toast, and don't expect much from the staff. They're super nice and polite, but don't understand the do's and dont's of inn-keeping. For instance, paid $50/night for Sat-Tues, came up a day early and they took advantage of everyone by charging them $79.99 for Friday night. Also, dog rates show to be $8 pet dog per night, but they charged $10. Basically, you get what you pay for.

Having had a recent bad experience with a different Choice hotel, I went into this hotel cautiously. I checked into a king room. Like I did in Chattanooga, I immediately pulled back the bedspread. The bottom sheet did not look fresh. When I looked closely, there were several different types of hairs, all over the sheet, along with a fresh looking stain that I won't even go into. The bed had been made with the same sheets someone, or several other people, had used. I should have been suspicious when the clerk asked if I was paying with cash or credit. What is this place used for if guests pay with cash??? I called the desk and was moved to a room that had clean sheets. Breakfast was the worst I've seen anywhere. The room was dirty and one of the cabinet doors was missing, exposing pipes, drains and tools. The coffee was horrible. There was one mini-honey bun and three Little Debbie-style oatmeal cakes on a tray, two plastic containers with cereal, and about 10 slices of white bread next to a toaster. The juice machine was broken and had a sign "Juice in Fridge." I looked and it was orange drink, not even real juice. That was the extent of their breakfast. I plan to notify Choice management and report both hotels to their respective state's health departments for carrying on such unclean and unscrupulous practices.

While traveling from Texas to Tennessee we choose this stop as the resting place for the first day. The check-in was easy and the site was adequate enough for our needs. The place is a little dated, but fair enough for the price. Kind of tricky to find in the dark, but easy enough to get in to. No loud noise or disruptions to speak of and the rooms were fairly quiet in regards to traffic. The family that runs the motel was helpful as much as possible. No complaints, you get what you pay for.

We stayed here over a night. It was a clean room and we got it for a good price. Motel has a big parking area. We didn't have any trouble to sleep. Shower and bathtub looked clean. The motel is next to an interstate .Highly recommended.

We checked in last night and the bed was so hard my wife and I got hardly any sleep. It was as if we were sleeping on a plywood bed. The shower/bathroom was very clean, and had good pressure. I do not recommend this hotel for anyone.

Extremely satisfied and surprised with their room quality and friendly service. It was a long drive for all of us (my wife and my 2 teenage kids). We were traveling to Birmingham, AL and were tired and exhausted so we decided to take a overnight stop before we arrive in Birmingham and we were also just looking for a nice decent place to crash and relax. It was late in the evening and after checking out the room, my wife and kids decided to take it right away without any second thoughts. The odor was perfect and sheets were clean. Flat screen TV was definitely a plus for the kids. Staff was friendly and overall we enjoyed our stay. Definitely recommended!!! It for sure felt like our home. Thanks management for the hospitality!

Nasty hotel I cant even believe it is still open I had to wait at the desk for at least five minutes before they even knew I was there and when they did come out they threw a piece of paper in my face to fill out I mean really 75 a night you can stay at a really nice hotel for that there was trash all in the parking lot and the juice machine had a sign on it that said juice in the refrigerator I mean did you just take the sign off to take pictures?? This hotel and the staff should be ashamed to run this so called business its a freaking joke needless to say I did not stay there I went to Bestwestern for 79 a night way better I would advise all of you to do the same

I chose this one quickly not reading the reviews, big big mistake!!! I looked at the price and the general rating and said ok for a one night stay. I need to sleep and then get up, we drove the parking lot and there were a lot of cars so we said ok, we had the room above the office, everything was quite and seemed secure. Upon looking at the room I determined this was a BAD choice. First off I curl my hair every morning NO hair dryer, I like coffee while getting ready NO coffee maker, YES I know trivial, DON'T put in your description if all the rooms don't have them. The cable box was behind the TV, I had to move it and jerry rig it to sit on top of a flat screen, no good. When I showered I found a hair that was not mine on the towel, ewe! I mentioned this to the person in the office when I requested my credit card copy back (the one that was made on the manual old swipe thing after I signed the receipt). When asked about why the copy was made it was because the locals destroy the rooms which made no sense as my license clearly said Florida when he wrote it down. When asked about the hair dryer and coffee maker he said oh we give those in certain rooms and upon request. (the night clerk obviously did not know this when I called and asked). All I can say is I did sleep there for 6 hours and I don't seem to have any bug bites. AVOID this hotel. I did not even thing of the breakfast as I didn't want to take a chance at getting sick.

Husband, children and myself stayed at Rodeway Inn while visiting nearby family. Not having stayed in this particular city before, we chose Rodeway Inn because of it's nightly rate and proximity to our destination. The motel is dated on the outside, but fairly modernized on the inside, complete w/ a huge flat screen tv (maybe 50"?). Beds and pillows were comfortable and not "wore out." Bathroom was very clean. No weird smells or sticky residue on anything. Although there is a built-in slot in wall, no tissues are provided. Staff was friendly. Even being right off I-59, noise was not a factor. Will stay here again for future visits to this area.
