Rodeway Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was charged twice by the manager. He is very rude. The ceilings leak. Poor house keeping.

I had no choice but to rent even after reading all those awful reviews, because there was a World War 2 function and all other hotels were booked solid. The room(non smoking) had such stench of cigarette smell that my eyes were tearing and my nose was itching.. The bathtub was dirty and there were still personal items of the previous renters. yuck!!! I asked to be changed from rooms and the next room was not much better. The hall rugs looked like they never saw a vacuum or shampoo. The towels even smelled like cig smoke.The wallpaper everywhere was dingy,as were the curtains, and bed linens. My sisters dresser had wire hangers on the drawers. I purchased my own linens,pillows,comforter and plug in fresheners, so that I can make my families stay tolerable. I WOULD NEVER stay there again!!!! BEWARE!!!

A great Hotel for a night out...Bar on site and a friendly upbeat Staff. Owner on site at times and cares about his guests enjoying and being comfortable in his Hotel......Recommended as one of the best Hotels I have experienced within the Reading Area fir the Value....

Not knowing anything else about it, we chose this hotel because of it's medium price range ($76 a night on Orbitz)Location at crossroads was decent, but security apparently bad problem. Outside entry doors to hallways were broken, and outside entry doors to rooms were chain locked and not supposed to be used by guests. Bathrooms really poor and dirty, and half of light bulbs in room burnt out. TV supposedly had movie channels which we never found. Final kicker was when we went to check out i requested a receipt, although by booking thru Orbitz my credit card was charged $76. The receipt I received showed that the hotel was paid $52 for the room! Who got the difference? Who caused us to get a $50 hotel room anyway when we deliberately tried to avoid getting one? I have to blame Orbitz for this fiasco.

telephone broken no clock cable tv was absolutely terrible

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It was dirty, the phone didn't work, the locks on some doors didn't work, etc. Don't stay here if you can avoid it.

We stayed at the hotel about 4 years ago.We enjoyed the pool and the cleanliness of the hotel. The location of the eating and shopping areas are very convenient. This stay was much different. The owners were very nice and fast.It got renavated with a new paint job. However,the rooms were unclean. I felt I couldn't take a shower. The toilet was stopped up so we couldn't flush the toilet.We will go back again! Sorry!

With respect to the hotel do not I have complaints of ningun type, therefore the cleaning of the room was excellente and the service that offered me equal, all the very courteous and very kind personnel and to pass some short holidays this super.

The front desk area was clean, the front desk clerk was friendly but this was her first check in job. The wallpaper was hanging off the wall in the stairwell and I hoped this was not a omen that my room would be dirty. I found the room to be extremely dusty. The bathroom was old and dirty. The soapdish was hanging off the wall in the shower. It had an overall dirty feeling to it. I called the front desk to complain but the phone was not answered. I tried to call later on but again there was no answer after many many rings. I ended up staying there but I would never stay there again nor would I reccomend anyone I know to stay there.

Not a very hospitable place.
