Rodeway Inn & Suites Houston2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The 2 employees we encountered with checking in and out were very nice. Location was good as it was 15 minutes from IAH. Bed was sagging in the middle. No coffee maker. Place is one level, so we could hear cars come and go. Good wifi. There were no lamps, just horrible, old overhead lighting. The caulk inside and outside the tub needed to be replaced. For an overnighter with a flight in the morning, it's fine.
very bad place to stay at drug dealers were allowed on property at all hours homeless people coming on property at all hours....people fighting in parking lot staff renting out rooms by the hour to people who want quick sex act
We were at a Ramada close by and we liked it for the first time. I went back on priceline to book additional four nights. Priceline stated that I am booking in the same area with the same level quality hotel. Paid for it and off we go in the evening. Priceline said that we booked for two guests. The Rodeway inn said no and that we need to pay extra. I said find since it is getting late and there is no refund. The gentleman behind the counter was so nice by the way. Since it was so cold, I put the heat on high but the door was kind of crooked and signs of prior forced entry. As a result the room is not insulated. Then in the morning I realized there is and inch a half hole in the wall. The second bed had small pillows one third the size of regular hotel pillows. The chairs needed some paint for sure and the table needs some nails as it was rocking back and forth. The mattresses were the cheap kind and would slide everytime I bumped into them with my knees. Let's talk about the breakfast, it was included but guess what? Orange juice was instant. There was only white bread and when we asked for extra, the front desk asked how many do we need. He pit out exactly what we asked for. There was butter and jam, oat bran, milk, coffee and a waffle machine. Had to shove the breakfast and walked back to our room. After 3 minutes my stomach stared aching badly and I am sure it was the instant orange juice. I decided not to have breakfast here anymore and Since we have three paid nights that are non-refundable, we might just book an other hotel. Life is too short and at my age, I can't afford to be unhappy.
A's others have mentioned, this is an older property. However, they appear to be actively updating the rooms. Our room was a recently updated one, with a micro fridge and microwave. The room was clean and spacious. This motel failed my "excellent" rating, as breakfast items were minimal and non-memorable. I felt that it was "very good," due to the basic amenities provided for a budget hotel. Otherwise, it was a good experience.
We stayed at the Rodeway Inn for a one nighter. The motel is pretty close to IAH so that's why we stayed in this area. The rooms are spacious and clean, free parking, free WiFi and a couple of dinning options near by. If you're heading to IAH I would recommend this pace.
Hotel cancelled our reservation then when we showed up.. Get this they blamed me. Said I cancelled the reservation, but why would we show up then? Said hotel was full and turn us away. Funny thing now they will have an empty room since it must have been someone else who cancelled. Make reservation at your own risk they will not be honored.
After check in we went to our room and noticed holes in the bedspread looked very old and dirty room was not clean ... Called hotels.com and they contacted the hotel directly they asked us to go to the desk and they did give us another cleaner room and the explanation that room was very different from pictures on the website the rooms are staged to show for the pictures. The second room was cleaner but still we we very disappointed in the whole situation. We have to return to Houston next week and we will be finding a different place to spend the night. We would have preferred our money back but they were not interested in doing that. Lesson learned stay away from a bargain it was too good to be true!
Arrived late as all the hotels closer to the airport were full due to a monster storm. Stave at the front could not have nicer as he held the room for us. So-so room, but it is a $25 cab ride back to the airport. From the airport you will pay at least $30 as the drivers take the long way. They also tell you about a $7 Houston Tax which is a lie so do not tip! Lucky to have found the place as the other option was sleeping at the airport.
I always enjoy my time at this hotel. The property sits far enough away from the highway that noise is eliminated (at least with the blower on, and it runs continuously when on). The rooms are large and attractive, and there are many restaurants if you go west on FM 1960 (toward Willowbrook Mall), and also north on I-45. This place is decent, well managed, and the staff, in particular Steve at the front desk, is professional and friendly. I recommend as a budget hotel that delivers a great value.
After flying 5 hours from Beirut to London,then 2 hours plus in Heathrow followed by 10 hours to Houston my IAH airport experience was a nightmare.However,although late and exhausted Steve from the Rodeway Inn was waiting for me.He drove me to the property and got me checked in and then dropped me off at my room.The room itself was excellent:super clean,oversized king bed,flat screen tv,desk and comfy chair for my laptop,good shower and ac,very quiet.The breakfast the next morning was just right:raisin bran cereal with a sliced banana,toast,orange and apple juice and plenty of good coffee.Steve,the manager,then took me back to the airport for my domestic flight to Brownsville.This hotel does not offer airport pickup,but Steve arranged to pick me up and drop me off with his personal vehicle!Talk about going the extra mile,what an outstanding guy and a perfect one night stop over.I will definitely stay there again on my way back out of the states at the end of my vacation.
