Rodeway Inn Monterey

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Could be a good budget hotel but badly in need of repairs. Sink faucet didn’t turn off properly, sink drain was very slow to drain. Tub was extremely shallow, shower had virtually no water pressure. Metal piece on edge of carpet had nails sticking up. Breakfast was a convenience store danish plus cheap OJ.

The wifi was not working the whole trip. If it connected, it was about 0.05 Mbs. The bathroom door did not shut all the way and there was discoloration on the door/trim. All in all a very bad experience.

This hotel is simple. It has few amenities and the neighborhood is not very walkable. However, with a care the location is perfect as it is near the highway. The only problem was that the breakfast was very minuscule. They only had prepackaged pastries and coffee/tea. Guests should not count on the breakfast to satisfy them completely.

stinky, smokey rooms will never recommend this motel

I was located tucked in the back, did not feel safe.

Although we booked this hotel months ago, we were told at check-in that they were fully booked. We were then bumped to the Econolodge across the street, which was, by all appearances, darker and dirtier than the Rodeway Inn (where we had our original reservation).

An inexpensive hotel available last minute just minutes from downtown Monterey. No complaints at all

If your squeamish about dirt and filth and mold and blood on the floor and disgusting bathrooms, this is NOT the place to stay. The price was ridiculously high for the cleanliness. Staff does not care. Not helpful So disappointed The bathroom was disgusting The shower was moldy AC did not work. Stay away

Friday night was $99 which was OK for Monterey. Saturday was $139 which was quite step for this cheap style motel. Shower had low water pressure... But i enjoyed the larger than normal refrigerator. The bed was decent but was obviously well used. The "closet" was really unusually placed... It costs 25 cents for ice. The breakfast is store bought danishes and cheap oj or coffee. Staff is mainly OK.

This hotel was in a nearby location, only 5 minutes to the aquarium and fisherman's wharf. Basic amenities, good enough for 1 day.

This hotel is ordinary. I only needed it to be close to the fairgrounds, which it was.

In town for business. The hotel was dirty and run down. Took over 10 minutes to get warm water from the shower. Wifi would drop constantly. No extra anything in the rooms (coffee or tea). The only good thing was the location. But you can go across the street and have better choices of places to stay

Very unfriendly people. Aircondition didn't work. No closet to put your clothes. Breakfast was terrible and late. We wouldn't stay there again!

I was expecting this hotel to be very ugly and not to have any extras. I was wrong! I was very surprised to know that breakfast was included and so was the internet! Wow! Not bad at all for the price. There were crazy guests there the night we stayed and they kept me from getting a good sleep.

It is a nice basic motel. A lot like a Travelodge, nothing fancy but clean and cheaper than most places. Free Wi-Fi but was having some problems throughout our stay.

I new it was 2 star hotel, but still seeing blood or something like that on the walls near bed was too much. It was special weekend in Monterey with all these car shows going on, so prices for rooms were outrageous everywhere. I decided to "save". It cost me $200 a night for a dirty room instead of $500 and up in better hotels. We decided not to stay there third night even we have paid for it.

Rest. Regroup.

The front desk person was very friendly but he came out in his undershirt. I guess its family own type of motel so I smelt food too. It just wasn't pro-looking place, even for the price. There were other motels across from it and we wished we booked them instead. The room was very small too.

It seems to be in a pretty good part of town. It's near the airport, and the man at the desk will tell you how to get there using back roads.

When we arrived the employe gave me a room... but he forgot the room was already busy!! I found other's people's baggages.... IF i were a thief i could had take all.. I come back and he gave me an other room.. but i didn't sleep all the night, feared if an other couple can enter when i was sleeping. Breakfast is an old muffin and coffee... we have taken breakfast to Denny's, 10 min away by car. It is a Motel quality and Hotel price.
