Rodeway Inn Hollywood

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here a few times,but they must have changed owners,not for the good lets say that. Will not be staying again.

This was my first time in Hollywood and I needed something cheap, but clean and safe. This hotel exceeded my expectations and was very clean. It's right across the street from Hollywood high and a seven minute walk from Jimmy Kimmel and Hard Rock Cafe. The only cons are the limited parking and lackluster breakfast. Also, bring five bucks in cash for a key deposit.

Was good for the price but the parking is not free, it is $10 per night. Breakfast was good, would stay here again. Close to lots of things in la

This was a good choice - I was looking for a cheap room close to the action in Hollywood.

Location is good, very near Universal Studios and the Walk of Fame. Appearance of the hotel is shabby, so is the neighborhood. Our room was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but there had definitely been smoked. Worse was the urine smell all over the room. The bathroom although was rather clean. "Breakfast" was a cup of coffee and a croissant and a muffin at a buffet at the reception, you had to eat it in the room. Needless to say we didn't... I would not recommend this hotel to a friend!

This is an old hotel and the rooms are very small. My room had no closets and no baggage stand. There was a coffee maker but there was no place to plug it in! (I had to put it on the floor next to the bed.) I had ordered a no-smoking room but when I arrived I was told that they don't have any no-smoking rooms! [...] VERY NOISY!

took tour of la, walked around shoe shoped up road,

room was very dirty. you can here the people next door threw the walks talking all night. i payed for two nights but checked out after the first night. i didn't mind loosing the money for the second night i just wanted out of there.

Great location, 1 block from Hollywood Bvd and Grauman's Chinese Theater. Lots of fast food places, such as In and Out Burger.

This is place to stay if ur not going to be in the room all the time. Its conveniently located to kodak and chinese theatre (hollywood blvd). I loved that the parking was free. The room had a weird odor. the view was te back of upolstery business(not pretty at all). breakfast was doughnuts, fruit, coffee, cookies. The iron didnt work well. I was only there for only 1 night so it was all good.

Rodeway Inn was not a bad choice, afterall, it was really cheap and it is at Sunset Blvd where almost everything "Hollywood" is at. If you're just staying there to sleep, it really isn't a bad choice because of the price, and the rooms and restrooms are clean. I actually booked us in a room with a King bed, 2 guests and there were actually three of us. My boyfriend, myself and my brother. Of course I don't want to share our bed with my brother! When I asked him to move us in a room with 2 beds he was hesitant at first. I told him that I don't mind paying the difference, but he offered that my brother get a room for himself. Of course that's just a waste of money and I told him I don't want to do that, and after a while he gave us a room with two beds, and it really wasn't that bad for a 1star hotel. The only thing I didn't like about the room was the comforter because it had cigarette butt holes on them. I would recommend it for the price and location, but if you are looking for something fancy, book somewhere else.

The room was quite large and clean for the price. Having a minifridge and microwave proved to be most useful.

the hotel was the next block over from the Kodak Theater, Manns Chinese theater etc. the room was ok for the night, the ceiling has water damage from above, & the front door, you could see the light around the door from the outside, the people that stayed next door were going to the Nascar race as we were, but stood in front of our door all night , being loud & drunk, when we got up the next morning there was puke all over the sidewalk, nothing like seeing that first thing in the morning! I'd rather stay in the Roosevelt Hollywood Hotel, (it was booked because of the Oscars)

This hotel is a walking distance to center of Hollywood, so it's very convenient. Also, there are many places to eat around the hotel. It's helpful for tourist who don't have a car.

TV DIDN'T WORK. FURNITURE WAS GREASY AND BATHROOM WINDOW DIDN'T OPEN. BUT IT WAS CLOSE TO HOLLYWOOD BLVD AND THE SHEETS WERE CLEAN AS WAS THE BATHROOM. SO FOR THE PRICE IT WAS GOOD

The Rodeway Inn isn't the newest, cleanest, fanciest or most expensive hotel in Hollywood. It is not new, but it is recently renovated. It was fit for use, and clean enough to keep us from feeling uncomfortable or from feeling ripped off. It's not fancy, but the room had the expected facilities (iron, TV, clock radio, phone, etc.) although I would have liked to see a coffee pot in -room. There is a small, clean pool, which someone was actually swimming in, and I didn't hear screams of I'm blind! so I assume it was properly tended. It's not cheap. I will always prefer to spend a bit more for a little extra effort, and that is what I felt we obtained. We were there during the height of foriegn tourism, apparently, and heard no complaints from others. If you want to stay in a REAL dive, there are plenty in LA, and particularly in Hollywood. I would recommend this to anyone whose intention is to SLEEP in the room, and see Hollywood during waking hours.

I chose to stay in this hotel because of it's central location. The Rodeway Inn is only two blocks from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Hollywood Wax Mueseum, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, and all the great shopping on Hollywood Boulevard. Throughout most of my trip, I was able to leave my car parked in thier parking lot, as I had wished, I wanted to do much of my sightseeing on foot. I am not picky about which hotel I stayed in, as long as it had a bed, an air conditioner and a shower. The hotel lacks fancy amentities, but then it is good on a economic price, especially for someone like me. I feel I made a good choice when selecting the Rodeway Inn, the pool and parking lot were quite small, but that is a given considering the age of the motel ( 1950's), as well as many of the other hotels on Sunset Boulevard. Many of the other hotels on Sunset Blvd. were actually not as kept up or as clean looking as the exterior of The Rodeway Inn. I give the hotel credit on that one. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Hollywood for the first tiem and wants a fair price on a hotel room.
