Rodeway Inn Convention Center

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Ramada Inn Convention Center is clean, with an Asian reception area decor appropriate to its location in KoreaTown. Yet it is only a 15-20 minute walk, about 1 mile, from the Los Angeles Convention Center. The staff were fine and welcoming on arrival and affable on departure. The room (king size bed for one person) was small, and clean. It had a coffee maker and refrigerator, both important, but no microwave. All the basics were there. There are two courts on the second level, one with a covered gazebo that made reading comfortable. The aura is that of an old, repurposed motel with outdoor entrance to the courtyard rooms. Everything seemed a little bit dated and used. The carpets were well-worn, for example. The breakfast is typical low budget hotel, including a waffle-maker. Breakfast starts at 6:30; do not expect it to start earlier as half-a-dozen of us stood outside waiting. WiFi was adequate in the room. There was a business office where I could not print my boarding pass, but the desk clerk could after I sent it to her be email. There is free parking, important if you have a car. All in all, this is a low-budget hotel with sufficient furnishings for spending the night. I rated it a two because it does what it needs to do but nothing more. The surrounding area is rather seedy all the way to the Convention Center. I would stay here again to save money, but might look elsewhere if my wife were accompanying me.

Location, location, location. Four minutes drive from the Long Beach Sea Aquarium. Check in was chaotic, clerk behind bullet proof glass and I had to make a considerable sum as a deposit above the roomrate. Also she forgot to unlock the door to an extra room, which was where the 2nd queen bed was located. Me walking to and fro in the heat, tired as I was after a long day. The rate against what the room offered was very poor, due to the location no doubt. The 2nd bed was in a seperateroom, not as advertised and without airco. The door to this room could not be opened fully. Both rooms rather small, so was the bathroo (shower). Continental breakfast, as advertised was so poor, it did not deserve to be called breakfast (went somewhere else). This was the only stay I'd certainly not go to again!

I stayed here while attending a conference at the Convention Center down the street. The location is convenient, walkable, with a lot of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. This motel was clean and comfortable. Good option on a budget.

I stayed here during a conference. Rooms were less than half what hotels close to the convention center were asking. I was able to walk to the convention center every morning. The neighborhood is a little blighted, but I felt safe. After dark, I used Uber just to be cautious. It is about a 20 minute walk to the convention center and it is entirely flat on sidewalks. My room was clean, although a bit spartan. There is no fitness center and the pool is not heated (plus it was locked up during my stay for some reason). So, walking is the best way to get exercise. The breakfast is standard, low key affair. Shower had hot water, but the shower head was pretty old school. Small flat screen TV with standard cable channels. Wifi is available. It is a too slow for streaming movies, but OK for email and browsing the internet. Parking is free which is a huge plus and I felt my car was secure. I parked it in line of sight of the office figuring the desk clerk would see if anybody was messing with the vehicle. My room was relatively quiet, no big traffic noises and any other guests seemed to be considerate. There is a McDonald's close by as well as a grocery store. Room has a mini-fridge and a microwave and coffee maker.

I stayed one night at this basic motel, including free parking in a gated area. The room looked nice and would have been comfortable but it needed to be aired out a bit as it had a bit of an odd smell. This is a decent economy choice however in a close to downtown area. The local area around the hotel is not the best, kind of run down but if you dont mind it, you will save a lot of money while being close and having parking. The rate was fair for everything.

Booked this for 3 nights in a nonsmoking room. We get there and the room reeks of smoke. Front desk staff came up and refused to admit that and said we could try to turn on the AC or spray something to get rid of the smell. When we told him this would not work due to a medical condition he said he couldn't do anything else because they were booked full and had no extra rooms. We canceled our reservation and went to stay elsewhere but they refuse to refund our money. I would understand keeping the money for the first night they lost business but for their failures, I'm loosing out on my money. This is absurd. Go elsewhere, where they will care about you and you'll have a much nicer stay.

Nice little hotel just outside of Downtown LA which was within walking distance or a short couple of stop bus ride. Rooms were tidy and clean, although a/c is very noisy. Bed was very comfortable for my needs. Reasonable price and staff are pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is small but seems to cater for everyone. Nice little pool to take a swim in and sit around after a day of sightseeing. As a budget hotel I would recommend and use again.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!!! We accidentally made a reservation online on 7/10 for a room on 8/13 when we intended for it to be on 7/13. We stayed the night on 7/13, but were charged for both nights. We called numerous times and spoke to at least 3 different staff (Eddie, Mohammad, & Omar) who kept giving us the run around when Eddie finally agreed to give a refund for 8/13 with a $50 penalty. Instead of following through, they charge us yet again for a full night - meaning they have TRIPLE CHARGED us for a ONE NIGHT STAY. I PAID A TOTAL OF $495.82 FOR ONE NIGHT!!!!!! BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THIEVERY!!!

This is our second year staying here for AX. The hotel is clean and Omar at the front desk rocks! We had no issues with parking, and you can't beat the free breakfast and WIFI. We will be booking again for 2018.

This hotel was infested with bedbugs! The incident in early April was horrible. Wife and daughter were bitten as soon as they climbed into bed - 10:45 at night. Reception told me there was nothing that could be done that night as all rooms were occupied. Told employee to cancel the remainder of my reservation and was told that I would be charged for this evening. Bedbugs were brought in with someone's luggage and nothing could be done about them. We hurriedly packed and moved to another, more expensive hotel.
