2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Attended machinery show. Great access. Will book later for next year.

Very poor..not clean....spider in the wall that I could see...overpriced...staff not helpful

Good value for price - basic accommodations but still OK - clean, comfortable stay. No problems to report

Average hotel close to convention center but right next to interstate and noisy

It was terrible..I did receive the handicap room but it defiinately had been a smoking room....the second day I came back and the bed was made & garbage cans emptied but that was it...coffee left in carafe..not new service left..no fresh towels. The third day I came in and noone had been in the room at all. I took the dirty towels to the office to get fresh ones. The people in the office were nice but I didn't get the wake up call I had requested...the shuttle was ok...I would never stay at a Rodeway Inn again. There was also no restaurant, etc within waling distance & they told me it wasn't a good neightborhood to walk in.

These rooms smelled OLD, stale, smoky and musty! No fridge, microwave or bed spread on the beds. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. No waffles, pancakes or hot chocolate! Enjoyed fresh fruit and coffee, but could have used more diversity and/or variety on the cereals. Rooms need soundproofing from other rooms and airplanes overhead. Staff friendly and informative+++++++++++++

No refrigerator, terrible TV, planes shook the building and freeway noise very, very loud!!

I booked a non-smoking room, none were available. Smoke smell comes in through the vent. Breakfast was marginal. Neighbors were loud. This is no higher than 2 stars.

We asked for two non-smoking rooms. Got one smoking and one that was non smoking that smelled like smoke and cigarette burns everywhere. We had an ant problem in one room. Had a coffee pot and no coffee. 1st day did not have shampoo, which I consider a necessity at any motel.

Just needed a place to "Get us By" for the night without paying a rediculous amount of money. We went to a concert at the Iroquois Park Amphitheater. We didn't want to drive all the way back to Frankfort that late at night... but we didn't want to spend $150 for a hotel room that we would only be in for a few hours. It was Ok... nothing fancy... but clean and conveniently located.

The hotel was given bad reviews by many people. My experience was entirely positive - helpful staff, clean room, free upgrade to a non-smoking room. The night was slighly loud from the planes and motocycles on the nearby road - not a problem - the AC humming reduces the outside noise. Free continental breakfast was a pleasant surprise.

Clean, nice and convenient. Close to the airport. It was good.

I entered room and noticed immediately curtains barely hanging on the window, no toilet tissue on either of two spindles, cob webs in the corners and most disturbing, the security latch on the door was busted off, I literally put the table in front of the door to be able to get any rest. Location is secluded from any food or care stores.

The front staff was very courteous and helpful which is very important to me. As far as the room it wasn't as nice as I'd hoped. It smelled bad and had some cleanliness issues one of which was a layer of dirt on top of shower surround.

The previous reviews gave me a fright, but it was too late to cancel. Considering it was about 2 miles from Churchill, $97 was not a bad price during Breeders Cup weekend. Too far to walk. All taxi fares were $25 each way, whether you stay in another part of town or 2 miles away. (Distance doesn't matter.) I found motel to be clean, no stains, towels were not excessive worn. I did not hear much airport noise; jet engines, of course, but in the distance. Biggest problem: smoke smell. All out of nonsmoking (really?) it wouldn't have mattered, though-- the vent system is old & cig smoke will waft in anway. Great if you're a smoker going to the races.

Internet didn't work, 35 yards from 8 lane highway, furniture was very cheap, decor was outdated, rooms were in disrepair

The location was great and the staff friendly. The only real issue was teh fact that in some landing patterns, the property is directly under the flight path to the runway and because this is a UPS hub, most of the cargo flights are at night. I was there on a Friday night and there were a bunch of airplanes landing well into the morning. On Saturday however, there were very few to none. In this price range, this was a good choice.

Arrived late at night and alarm was going off. Could not figure how to turn off. TV was not working and toilet had not been flushed. Cigarette burns in bed cover. Not a good experience. Will not return.

This is a motel that is right off the expressway. I could hear young people partying all night. Pay the extra $20 and stay at any of the other hotels nearby-- it will be definatly worth it!

This said to be a 4star hotel. WRONG....... I was a dump. I was to stay in place for one week, on the eve of my thrid night returning from a meeting,the place was on fire!!! Yes on fire, i had to wait out side for 2hours to find out where i was going to stay. So if and when it get reopen don't list as a 4star. I was very unhappy for the first time with my booking agent.
